SponsoredLinx AdWords scam, big promises but no results whatsoever Internet
The only aspect of their operations that worked 100% was their charging (read - milking) system, where a day or 2 of a late payment would result in the following email:
**This is a final reminder before lodging your debt with Marshall Freeman Collection. Any extra costs incurred will passed onto you".**
Their charge was $89 p/week, where in a very small print the deal was to still pay them additional 2 weeks even after cancelling the contract.
Let's examine their performance in the first place: The 'specialist' who was assigned to our 'campaign' has no idea about the industry, keywords, CPC or anything else that an average service provider of this sort should have. Our AdWords campaign was running for about 4 years before SponsoredLinX got involved. Our CTR (click thru rate) was between 3-4%, but their 'specialist' disregarded this result saying that at least 8-9% would be acceptable and is achievable within 3-4 weeks. (Luckily I've asked them to keep our campaign so we can compare the results of each).
Long story short - the best SponsoredLinx was able to do was 1% CTR, with average ranking of 4rd or even below.
When we called them to discuss the results, the excuses that we heard were just amazing, such as -will call you in 10 min (which never happened), the consultant is on the brake, away on holidays, sick with flu, and God knows what. Their best excuse was that the person who was doing our campaign has left SponsoredLinX to become a pilot?!? (How ridiculous!!)
Our sincere recommendation to everyone who receive a call from SponsoredLinx telemarketers - AVOID them if you don't want to get ripped off, as that's simply the only thing they are capable of doing - Rip You Off.
SponsoredLinx is unable to produce any results whatsoever and in particular fulfill the promises they use to lure you in signing in.
As soon as SponsoredLinx sign you in, they forget about you like you've never existed, except when they need to charge their ridiculous fees
Remeber this name - SponsoredLinX and keeeeep away from them, away, away, away .. as they are simply a bunch of imbeciles without any knowledge or capability to produce any results!!
