Complaint Review: ABT Media and Marketing
ABT Media and Marketing Chris James NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH THEM! Panama City Florida
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: ABT Media & Marketing is Now Veteran Owned
ABT Media and Marketing has very unethical practices and have been caught in many lies. I have paid ABT Media and Marketing over $8500.00 in the last year for services that were not fulfilled. I had them build a website which STILL ranks as one of the lowest rankings in the industry in Florida! I also had them optimize my other website at $800 per month, which was poorly administered. They even forgot several services including a social media optimizing! I had to call them 3 months after to ask them about it, and they stated that they forgot to include that, however, they DID NOT forget to charge me for it! Their reporting is on an email format similar to this: photo booth ....8 down -2 photo booth rentals....13 up +1.... EVERY month I had to call and remind them to send me a report! They forget to send them! REALLY?!!!! The company I am with now sends me bi-monthly reports and they are an 11 page attachment with graphs, stats, rankings..... I'm a little concerned for Chris, the owner, because she forgets a lot! My mother had alzheimer's and I can sense a little of that. When I switched to ABT from another SEO company that optimizes Websites, my site was ranking number 3 for the key words, "photo booth rental(s)" when I left ABT last month, my company is not even showing up on the 4th page for "photo booth rentals" and I have fallen to number 9 for "photo booth rental." I really think Chris "forgot" to optimize my website every day. Now she is claiming that I owe her for a month of service (8-1 to 9-1) when my month has ALWAYS started on the 17th. I have records to show this. She "forgot" again and said that my month started on the 1st and therefore owe a month of service that was never provided! I have also caught her in another lie from an email I retrieved from my cousin who also uses her services (not for much longer though). In it she states on Aug. 10th "FOR THE RECORD, we did not do ANY website work for him." But now she wants payment for "services" from 8-1-8-3!
PLEASE BEWARE! That if you use ABT Media and Marketing you will be dealing with someone who forgets a lot and has really no track record of bringing rankings up for websites! It would be similar to a personal trainer, training someone for years and the client only gets heavier and heavier! Results don't lie! If the people out there reading this want an excellent SEO company who has ALWAYS produced and has NEVER made excuses, please call Chris Twoomey at Noxter. His number is 812-272-2739. Noxter even told me something VERY alarming, they said that ABT Media and Marketing had deleted a lot of their links, blogs and posts relating to my site (I was with Noxter for 3 hyears before going to ABT), and that was the reason behind my drop in the rankings. ABT Media and Marketing had no real substance on my website linking it to what we do on the internet!
Results don't lie!
I am speaking with my attorney about recouping at least 40% of the money I have paid ABT Media and Marketing. I plan on blogging about them as well. Companies like this should not be in business. Their business hurts other business!
