Truth from a former Employee about Promotion Exchange!

AUTHOR: Hate Being Screwed - ()

Dear readers,

The truth is that Promotion Exchange does do unlawful practices. I know because I used to work there. I would rather not use my real info as writing things like these can hurt you later on in your employment. I did want to make sure that people did know about the things that do go on at Promotion Exchange in order to have the truth be known. 

First off as an employee at Promotion Exchange I was instructed to create fake Social Media profiles and to buy "Likes" for customers in order to show the customer numbers that weren't being reached through organic means. This was all instructed by Lee Mamane, the "VP" of Promotion Exchange and the laziest person in the world! He instructed me to buy likes and then lie to the client about the progress of the campaign! A great example of this is their client "Floors LA" (https://www.facebook.com/FloorsLA).

On this link you will see over 300 "likes" but NO interactions. The reason for this is because all of the likes were bought, and there for they are FAKE!!! You can also look at their own Facebook page The Lucky Deal (https://www.facebook.com/theluckydeal) and see again NO interactions and a whole lot of likes. Again, if a page has these many likes, and the content is decent (Like the above mentioned pages have) than you would be seeing some form of interactions.

Also check out their WebSite and ask yourself this, why on their Portfolio page (http://promotionexchange.com/portfolio/) are there NO links to the clients web pages? Also ask yourself why all of the Websites are laid out the same way? Here is one of their clients real links (http://thecraniospinalcenter.com/articles). Ask yourself this question, why does this page look different than all of the other pages on the site? 

More so Promotion Exchange doesn't "create software" they use WordPress Templates to create the websites they sell. So don't let Lee Mamane tell you a lie! He actually has ZERO technical knowledge about the products he sells. Simply google things like "Best Strategies for SEO" or "Best Strategies for Social Media" read a few blogs and then go and meet with Lee Mamane. Ask him about he subjects you read about and see what he says. Then ask yourself, if he is such an expert, why is his info incorrect and why doesn't he write his own blog? It is because he knows no truth, only the lies he feeds himself by reading one sentence of an article, not the entire thing... aka Laziness! 

Check out Promotion Exchange's Yelp page, and ask yourself, "Why are there so many Flagged comments"? Look at the Flagged comments on Yelp, and you will see the REAL Promotion Exchange. A place that is ran by a guy named Lee Mamane who lies about everything he can to get the deal, and makes his employees take the blame. No matter how many times I mentioned the things above, I was pushed aside and now that I have been gone from the company, its time to start to tell the truth about Lee Mamane and Promotion Exchange! 

STAY AWAY FROM PROMOTION EXCHANGE!!!
