Ripoff Report Verified REVIEW:

EDitors UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to Increase Visibility Inc. for its commitment to excellence in customer service.
Increase Visibility is Rip-off Report Verified

The information provided in this report is based on comments made by Jimi Lisi and Team Leader Mike Svetliz during an on-site inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases toward Increase Visibility.
Ripoff Reports discussions with Increase Visibility have uncovered an ongoing commitment by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any complaints or concerns. Increase Visibility listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

Increase Visibilitys founder, Mr. James Lisi, has informed us that his personal philosophy is that his clients are a precious commodity. As a successful businessman for 21 years, Mr. Lisi feels it is critical to listen to his clients and respond accordingly. By always putting his customers first, Mr. Lisi hopes to maintain Increase Visibility as a successful enterprise since 2005 and for many years to come. Another top executive of the company told us that Mr. Lisis personal business philosophy is based on the premise that "strives to add value in its Internet marketing services as they understand that a successful business model is based on value-added services, and premium client care. Increase Visibility is all about better service equaling better results. From team calls to monthly reporting, their optimizers and account managers are driven to exceed clients expectations with professionalism and unmatched expertise. Accountability is part of their corporate fabric which shows with their 96% client retention rate!

Some of the other things Ripoff Report learned in the course of its investigation: typical customer feedback reads: Increase Visibility (and Mr. Lisi) Increase Visibility has helped our company increase ranking of our most important keywords and phrases, increasing ROI in our SEO channel. This allowed us to cut back on spend in costlier channels. They also helped our company kick off our SEO efforts on two new websites and we saw immediate benefits from natural search on these sites as well.

Increase Visibility provides an internet marketing service to clients of all sizes. Their marketing services are based on writing high quality content for the search engines, which includes handling link building, content creation, keyword density and press releases. Through these services, Increase Visibility aims to generate more quality traffic for their clients, and thus more revenue. Although they offer their services to clients of all sizes, their target market is medium sized businesses who generate $1-5 million per year, do around 5-10h ppc (pay per click) and want to diversify their marketing. To generate leads, Increase Visibility states that they pay lead brokers, are ranked #1 on toptenreviews.com and are also ranked well on Google, all of which provide leads and inquiries.

Increase Visibility's sales process starts with a website evaluation report, which helps indicate weaknesses with a potential client's website. Leads are walked through these reports while given recommendations for conversions. Services are then suggested based on the size of the website and the keywords desired by the client. Increase Visibility prides themselves on their customer service and accountability. They offer a back-end client center where their clients can receive daily reports of the work that is going into enhancing their company's internet visibility.

Jim Lisi states that he has spent the last 11 months improving the operational structure of Increase Visibility and that they are now at 95% efficiency. To improve upon their structure, they have held bi-weekly meetings, training, and team members have attended seminars in order to improve their processes. Team members are advised to "go above and beyond" to ensure their clients' full satisfaction, address any concerns, and they now boast a 96% client retention rate.

Common complaints made by customers are generally based on traffic not increasing quickly enough. Team leader Mike Svetliz states that each client's website has variable chances to rank online. Their sales team takes that information into account and tries to avoid making promises or giving their clients unreal expectations. One instance in particular involved a client wanting increased revenue after 3 months of service. Although traffic had increased on their site, sales were not reflected. Increase Visibility took extra time to consult for conversions by adding heat map tracking and goals in analytics to produce a higher conversion rate while maintaining services.

Since Increase Visibility has been a part of the Rip Off Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, they have increased the transparency of their operations and allow their clients to view all tasks, reports, and deliverables in their third party project management platform. The company feels that it is great to be working with Rip Off Report and they are proud to be a part of this program.

At Increase Visibility, they incorporate a comprehensive search strategy to maximize your online brand visibility on all channels thus maximizing clients overall exposure. Their focus is long term business partnerships not short term monetary gains. Increase Visibility works with their clients to not only build traffic, but also enhance their online marketing & advertising strategies. Thats how they differentiate themselves from other marketing agencies. It is one thing to drive new traffic, but they help you convert that into dollars

Increase Visibility views employee satisfaction seriously as well. Employee feedback and surveys reveal comments such as this: "Mr. Lisi provides a very positive environment to work. Opportunities for improvements and suggestions are encouraged. James is truly concerned about our contribution to the company and provided solid growth opportunities for us. He takes the time to listen and communicate with his employees and customers." Rip-off Report was pleased to learn that Increase Visibilitys past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client and employee satisfaction.

Increase Visibility recognizes that complaints posted on Ripoff Report (whether true or not) are issues that need to be addressed, not ignored. If handled correctly, complaints can be valuable learning opportunities. With the feedback generated by Ripoff Reports Investigation Increase Visibility has made organizational changes allowing its clients and employees a more streamlined approach to problem resolution and a commitment to a great client experience.

In summary, after our investigation, which included discussions with Mr. Lisi and many of his past and current associates, Ripoff Report is convinced that Increase Visibility is committed to quality delivery of services resulting in total client satisfaction.

increasevisibility.com representation by the CEO and verbal abuse with lies and non performance of paid services. aliso viejo California

This Company needs to be brought out into the light so everyone is fully aware of their scams and black-hat SEO techniques. I have been financially taken, lost rankings, sales and verbally abused to the point I want the public to have notification to Increase Visibilities practices.

My last email from the CEO was sent by mistake and I was cc on it:

Sent: Tue, March 22, 2011 23:58:13 GMT+00:00

Subject: RE: Collect!

How about this b*tch pays us the two months she owes us,call her and tell her to PAY now or I will send out the wolfs and make her life miserable!


My response to the CEO was not what I wanted to say in truth so I stayed as calm and professional.

Dear Mr Lisi,

 I really cant believe that you called me such names and you guys are taking people away from our campaign once again.  And during the last month of our service agreement as well.  I still dont see any changes that were supposed to be made to our site, I rarely received phone calls from anyone on countless occasions, I received 1 phone call from Marcus last week saying that he will be on it and make sure that these things will get done and he will contact me again in a week or so, and unfortunately I wasnt surprised that he never called or replied to any of my emails after the phone

conversation.   I dont see what you guys expect to do in the however many days that are left now.  I really dont need introductions of who will be handling my campaign in place of whomever since all it seems to mean is Ill be getting an email from a different email address and perhaps a phone call to once again tell me that someone else has taken over

just to give me an introduction, I dont find it necessary.  I am at my end with your lies and commitment to scam me out of anymore money.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

The truth is more powerful than anything---will find you our jim lisi crook

AUTHOR: Unbelievable lies by Increase Visib - (United States of America)

as a former consultant for increase visibility for several years I have the opportunity to work closely with jim lisi and his gag. some folks were nice enough and just doing a job.

jim lisi however was and I am sure continues to be impossible to please, extremely rude, out of control when it comes to partying and drugs, full of anger and a VERY VERY short fuze.

all I can say is that you don't want to get on the wrong side of this child. He has deep pockets from his shady SEO scam and is not afraid to blow it all on making a point and destroying someone else, that is his style and one i would recommend sating as far away from as possible.

as a former employee i feel extremely glad for not having to spend one more minute of my life working for this joker...for current and future clients...oh how I feel sorry for you. 

Am posting this because i feel obligated to warn others about the potential for drama, legal frustration and major financial set backs from dealing with increase visibility and their gang of crooks.
