WebiMax is a company specializing in providing digital marketing for companies of all sizes. They strive to help their clients grow through online efforts, such as helping them use their website as a marketing tool to find more opportunities such as leads or sales. Leads are acquired primarily through WebiMax’s marketing efforts. “Opportunity finds us. We promote online. We speak to potential customers with online consultants. Clients get a card and are assigned a Project Manager. We continually work to improve a client’s online marketing,” states Ken Wisnefski, a representative of WebiMax. Once a client is assigned a Project Manager, a marketing plan and process is drawn up for each individual customer. “Our team of online consultants determines the best process for each individual company that we serve. This is done before any compensation is collected from the client,” states Mr. Wisnefski. WEBIMAX / Customer Service & Complaint Resolution
At times, clients may not feel satisfied with the services they have received. An example of this is a client WebiMax once worked with to improve their online marketing presence. WebiMax worked with the client for 5-6 months, but the client did not see the amount of growth that was desired. “WebiMax [then] re-created the client’s website and platform. We wanted to make the client happy and eliminate any possible road blocks to their success,” states Mr. Wisnefski. Although this is not a common complaint, the team at WebiMax did everything they could to ensure that client’s satisfaction. “I speak to clients myself and address their areas of concern. I take a global look in order to find a solution to our client’s problems. I put more cost into the process and the client could not believe that this company went above and beyond their expectations,” states Mr. Wisnefski. In response to WebiMax’s efforts to ensure their client’s satisfaction, “[The client] was very happy that we followed through with our suggestions to resolve his problem. He was very pleased that we re-created his website and platform at no cost to him. He was very pleased to work with us moving forward,” states Mr. Wisnefski. PROCEDURES IN PLACE TO ENSURE CUSTOMERS CONTINUED SATISFACTION
After a complaint is resolved, WebiMax has follow-up procedures in place to ensure their customers’ continued satisfaction. “We continue to provide services and process the results in the appropriate way. The Project Managers will follow-up with the clients in order to make sure their concerns are addressed. If the Project Manager cannot resolve the issue, an administrator will contact the client to address the concern,” states Mr. Wisnefski. WebiMax strives to avoid complains in the first place by working to set the appropriate level of expectations for the client. “We spend more time with the client pre-sale and set up the process to be successful for both the clients and the company,” states Mr. Wisnefski. They also continue to address their internal procedures to ensure their clients’ satisfaction. All WebiMax employees receive customer service training; all employees learn the best practices and appropriate levels of engagements; and they adjust scheduling to address the client’s needs. “We are concerned and actively seek to be proactive in resolving issues as early as possible,” states Mr. Wisnefski.
Since receiving complaints through Ripoff Report, WebiMax has taken several steps to improve their processes to ensure client satisfaction. The team at WebiMax utilizes an escalation process through which difficult problems are sent to the upper executives in order to prioritize and resolve the issues as soon as possible. They also utilize an advocacy program in which they let the clients see the length that the team at WebiMax goes to in order to maintain client relations. They also utilize transparency, providing internet-based tools to clients, allowing them to see the entire process from start to finish. “We show the clients everything that is happening in the back office and explain it to them. We show all growth tracking and trending to evaluate the effectiveness of the service that we provide to our clients,” states Mr. Wisnefski. Additionally, WebiMax provides all their clients with monthly reports for deeper clarity of the process being utilized for their campaign. WebiMax has also created a new client center, which is accessible by every one of their clients, allowing them to go into the center and engage with the team and the process. “We look to address client expectations from the beginning of the process. We seek to set the tone with an initial hour-long call to set expectations… We diligently follow up with clients to address concerns,” states Mr. Wisnefski.
In response to the complaints posted on Ripoff Report against WebiMax, Mr. Wisnefski states “Some of the claims that were made do not relate to the clients that work with our company. One client used our services for 2 months. He was not happy with the service we provided after this short period. We attempted to make him happy to no avail. We provided him with a full refund and we completed the agreed-upon work. The client was still unhappy and reported our company to Ripoff Report. We go above and beyond to satisfy our clients.” Mr. Wisnefski and the team at WebiMax recognize the value of working with Ripoff Report and the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, and the platform it provides for businesses and clients to interact and resolve issues. “We feel that this rebuttal is extremely valuable to our company. We are happy to have the opportunity to state our side of this issue, as well,” states Mr. Wisnefski. WEBIMAX / Statements from the owner, Ken Wisnefski "
I founded WebiMax on the core principle that I would create a company that would truly help our clients grow their businesses by working with them more as a strategic partner than merely an outsourced vendor.
In listening to client concerns during the early stages of our growth, we focused strongly on developing the right balance of our client services team to not only provide results for our clients but also have the ability to spend more time discussing our clients campaigns with them. All client concerns are viewed by a member of our management team and resolutions to these concerns are promptly addressed. Our focus is to always provide our clients with an effective service but also a quality customer service experience.”

When I first started WebiMax in 2008, I wanted to create a company that leveraged a deep online marketing knowledge that could be customized to fit each of our client’s specific needs. I saw plenty of companies that had “one-size-fits-all” mentalities, and I felt strongly that I could do better. I had been a victim in my previous venture of working with a few online marketing firms that promised the world, signed me to long-term contracts and then delivered absolutely nothing. Through this experience, I feel I have a perspective that our competitors simply do not. I realize what it’s like to be disappointed and let down by the online marketing firm you are working with and my goal is to do all I can to ensure my clients see the value of our service.
While the online marketing world has changed drastically in the six years since WebiMax first opened, the ability to evolve with the changing landscape related to web-based marketing makes WebiMax stand out as a thought leader in our industry. I worked extremely hard to integrate extensive on-going training for our staff to stay far ahead of the curve as changes to search algorithms and new online marketing platforms gain steam as viable options for advertisers.
My commitment to my clients continues to focus heavily on providing an innovative, well thought-out strategy that is managed by experienced and diligent client service specialists. By having a strong nucleus of strategy and continually monitoring the evolution and trends that the industry is constantly faced with, I know that when it comes to choosing the right firm to assist your company in growing your online process, there is only one choice that ensures success and that choice is clearly WebiMax.
I take great pride in the company and team that I have built as well as the commitment to excellence that I have instilled in my staff.” ~ Ken Wisnefski, Founder/CEO

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
These guys are pathetic. They conned me into providing my contact information in order to obtain pricing information. They use entirely doctored, fake reports, reviews and ratings in order to obtain business. They manipulate the customer in order to get that customer.
They trick you into thinking you are getting information when they just want your name so that... THEY CAN CALL YOU 50 TIMES A DAY in hopes of securing you as a customer. Say What!? They think this is the way to do business? This makes it clear why they have such a horrible reputation. I have never ever been harrassed SO MUCH by anyone in my life as Webimax. They literally called me every hour, and emailed me multiple times a day to try and get my business. I have never heard of such absurdity. Telemarketers don't do that. Business men don't do that. Collection agencies don't even do that for crying out loud.
1) Not transparent. They would not provide any info about their pricing and plans, which is how they con you into submitting your contact information.
2) Tricks me in any way. Making false claims in order to obtain potential leads is definitely not the way to do business.
3) Harrasses me by calling me repeatedly. It is disrespectful and clearly indicates how DESPERATE for business they must be if they have time to call the same person every hour.
These guys are professional con artists. They will con you, and if you choose to do business with them they will also con your customers. Which tarnishes your name with the same brush. STAY AWAY from these guys they are bad news.
