Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW:

EDitor’s UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to Brandefined for its commitment to excellence in customer service.

Ripoff Report’s discussions with Brandefined have uncovered an ongoing dedication 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 concerns. Brandefined 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.

Brandefined’s principal, Mr. Mike Clancy, has informed us that his personal philosophy is that his clients success are the heart of the business. As a successful businessman, Mr. Clancy feels it is critical to listen to his clients and respond properly. By always putting his customers first, Mr. Clancy hopes to maintain Brandefined as a successful enterprise both now and for many years to come.

Another top executive, CEO Ronald Way told us that Mr. Clancy's personal business philosophy is based on the premise that "strives to add value in service, understanding that a successful business model is based on value-added services, and client care”. Brandefined's Ronald Way says this, "We are one of the top ad agencies for helping small businesses create and understand their own brands. With us, you’ll always receive a complex and customized approach to branding that comes from a team who consistently borrows strategies from large brands and adapts them to fit the financial needs of small businesses all over the world.’’

One of the things Ripoff Report learned in the course of its review is that typical customer feedback reads, “Brandefined truly communicate all aspects of the service in a timely and effective manner. We are very pleased with the responsiveness that the employees show us. They are serious about meeting commitments, and deliver on their promises.”

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Michael Clancy during an on-site inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases toward Brandefined.

Brandefined is a company specializing in providing bid brand strategies for small businesses. “We are an ad agency. We call over 4,000 people a day to see if we can help them get more clients,” explains Michael Clancy, a representative of the company. Leads are acquired from a third party and then get sourced internally for Brandefined’s purposes. In regards to the typical customer experience, Mr. Clancy explains, “They will get a good one. The prospect client will be given an education prior to any sales pitch. We changed our sales model from cold calls to set appointments then the webinar.”


Brandefined Customer Support & Complaint Resolution

At times, customers may not feel satisfied with the product or services they’ve received. However, Mr. Clancy states that they have not had many complaints. “Those who worked here before and may have lied to the clients are no longer here. We sell advertising, we cannot control the outcome of that, meaning we can’t guarantee any certain amount of increased business to the client,” he explains. He goes on to state that some clients complain that they paid Brandefined for advertising, but didn’t get as much business as they were expecting. However, he states that they paid for advertising, and that’s what they got – advertising on social media that they did not have before. After a complaint is resolved, Mr. Clancy states that his team will follow-up with the customer via phone call.

During the sales process, customers are expected to remit payment at the point of sale, and then Brandefined provides their service once payment is received. Mr. Clancy feels that, from his perspective, they do not pressure their clients into purchasing advertising. He states that Brandefined has an ‘A’ rating with the Better Business Bureau, is a Facebook studio edge partner, and a Google certified partner.

Although Mr. Clancy insists that changes they have implemented have little to do with Ripoff Report, there have been changes made internally to Brandefined’s procedures. “We now show a 30-minute webinar to clients before they purchase our services. Our team has a script they must read and if they say things that are not true, they get fired,” he explains.

Mr. Clancy recognizes the transparency that working with Ripoff Report and the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program can provide. “I think a lot of companies say they are transparent but are not,” he states.

With us, you’ll always receive a complex and customized approach to branding that comes from a team who consistently borrows strategies from large brands and adapts them to fit the financial needs of small businesses all over the world. Please take time to review our site, learn about some of our tools, meet the people who will manage your account, understand our history, and receive answers to some of your questions.”

Brandefined's team have expressed that they feel very confident doing their job.

Brandefined takes employee satisfaction seriously as well. Employee feedback and surveys reveal comments such as this, "Brandefined provides a very positive environment to work. Opportunities for suggestions and improvements are encouraged. Mr.Way is truly concerned about our contribution to the company and providing growth opportunities for us. He takes the time to listen and communicate with employees and customers.”


Ripoff Report was pleased to learn that Brandefined's past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client and employee satisfaction.

Brandefined They repeatedly call and harass to solicit business after I have asked them to cease and reported them. I have no previous experience with this company but I think they found my name on Facebook so th Internet

They keep calling me after I have asked them to stop calling me. They are telemarketers and they won't stop. I have no relationship with this company whatsoever. This is harassment. I have reported them to the Do Not Call Registry numerous times for these violations. This is insane.
