The Crowd Conversion Social Sales Engine of Sam Bakker and Robert Grant came up with this Facebook Contest App generator. This product came after purchasing their webinar course a year ago that talked about Facebook marketing strategies. The bottom line of course, was driving traffic
to your website.
As advertised, I was able to use the said contest generator with such ease and introduce Facebook Contests to my clients as part of my online marketing services. These clients whom I had provided Facebook accounts were very much impressed with these add-on service and true enough, there was optimism because of the high amount of traffic we got out of the contest
The contest promotion was indeed one of the cornerstones of online marketing and it was gathering steam and created quite a splash among the social networking site.
I trust Sam Bakker and Robert Grant, I really do. [continued below]....
There was no reason to doubt them. They got their videos shown all over the webinars, their photos all over the web, and of course, their FB Contest App Generator that worked wonders for me and my clients. It was such a valuable investment with a win-win situation.
And so I thought.
Christmas Day, 2012. I was supposed to check for the December contest winners. I was surprised to see that the domain has expired!
Many things crossed my mind. But I pushed them all back and told myself to be patient. It was the holidays anyway, so I figured I would just wait by January.
A couple of days had passed, there was no change in the site and now I was beginning to be alarmed. On one side, I was afraid what I would tell my clients and on the other hand, I was now beginning to be pissed off.
Still I wanted to be civil and all, so I wrote Robert Grant a letter via his email (email@example.com). It was the first week of January and until now. I got no response. I do receive an email from him today informing the latest webinar schedules. Same goes for Sam Bakker who sent an autoresponse email that you cannot even reply to.
I am writing this article to share my sad and unfortunate experience in dealing with these people. I have no intention to malign or to pass judgment on them. The fact is that I got duped into buying a product and I have the right to voice out my disgust. It would have been better if they at least replied to my emails and all.
I made the mistake of trusting them, and I got what I deserved.
That is why I made this report to remind them that we, the "small business" players, must be respected too. I hope they restore the site or refund my hard-earned money.
So, if you see their names and their products.
