Are these guys associated with or doing business with a company called Localmarketingadvertising.com? They have the same address. Is a person named "Mathew Marlen" associated in anyway shape or form with these operations?

cALLS ARE BEING MADE TO COMPANIES NATIONWIDE from their reps at this operation "Local Marketing Advertising" out of Las Vegas. They pitched us on using one of their online videos that is guaranteed to bring in 30-50 new customers every month.

HER'ES THEIR PHONE # (877) 419-3569...CALL THEM AFTER YOU READ THIS POST AND TELL THEM WHY THEY ARE TRYING TO CHARGE FOR A SERVICE THAT IS FREE FROM GOOGLE. AND YOUTUBE.

They want $299 a month to create and post a video to YOUTUBE. To start they demand  $598.00 to start. They also said that they will put my company in the Google mapping area on the first page of Google., which will be included. If i want to be listed in the mapping area on Google only they want $299 a month. THIS SAME SERVICE THEY PUSH IS FREE FROM GOOGLE!!! 

These people are the biggest scammers trying to find business owners to take advantage of and slam them for their credit car d or checking account info. Their videos are just simple slide show presentations that my 12 yr old son could do.
 
These type of low rate/amateurish videos can be done yourself for free on Windows 7 in the Movie Maker program plus it's free to post your video to YOUTUBE and other video sharing sites. As far as the Google mapping area Google doesn't charge anything, IT'S FREE!!!!!!!

We also have done some research and found out that they have been banned form calling attorneys and if you call their customers listed on their website they will tell you that they have had no results form the schlockly and poorly optimized video.. THERE'S PLENTY OF LEGIT ONLINE VIDEO PRODUCTION COMPANIES LISTED ON GOOGLE AND THEY'RE MUCH MUCH CHEAPER AND YOU'LL GET BETTER RESULTS. BUT AGAIN IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS 7 JUST USE THE "MOVIE MAKER" PROGRAM, IT'S GRTEAT AND THEY WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO POST IT ON YOU TUBE.

USUALLY THE BEST ADVICE IS TO STAY AWAY FROM THESE LAS VEGAS SEO/WEB BOILER ROOM OPERATIONS MOST OF THEM ARE START UPS AND LOOKING FOR NEW VICTIMS TO SCAM.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

they are not a newspaper

AUTHOR: angry society - ()

 this company is run by former traffic power ceo matt marlon. matt has a long line of scaming people even employees. he has convictions for real estate fraud and conspiracy to manufacture a controlled substance and possession of a chemical used to make methamphetamine. over the last 2 years he has refused to pay employees, hiding and leaving the building when it was time for them to get paid. he operates under the veil of a newspaper but his offices are strictly telemarketing of google maps sales. his practice has also led to companies being black listed by google, do to fraudulant business information and creations of mirror pages.

i know first hand as i was also one of the people who put in their time only to be paid after having to threaten him. he does not care about anyone or anything. stay away from his type of business 61 people lost their homes because of him and 47 of those homes had renters paying rent on time only to be thrown out because of his scams. and all he got was a huge fine and probation at 64, this right after probation for meth related crimes. also they are not banned from calling attorneys, matt marlon does not allow the telemarketers to call them based on his contracts and background.

#3 General Comment

Your facts are wrong

AUTHOR: Terry Swanbeck - (United States of America)

The things you say about the service being provided and the fact Google will give it for free is absolutely wrong. What do you think Google adwords is you pay Google to get you traffic customer by customer and you pay Google a fee for doing this. You pay for every customer that comes to your site by Google. So the fact you say it is free makes think you wrote something without getting all of the facts. It is not FREE. when I read a report that misinforms people of facts it makes me think the report is not a good one. Sorry
