Complaint Review: CrowdfundBuzz
CrowdfundBuzz, Matt Cooke and Howard A. Sherman are SCAM! Lousy Press Release and terrible distribution. Terrible quality press release, bad service, no results, Fiver $5 gigs used to deliver 'quality service'. Crowdfundbuzz.com is a scam. Internet
They did deliver what was in my order BUT terrible quality, press distribution I can do for free, used Fiverr Gigs ($5) and of course did not get a single backer for my campaign. Although I did reach my target with my own efforts.
Once started, I did get a lot of views, but zero conversions. I later learned that they just buy a traffic service on Fiverr, which is basically bot traffic (no humans).
I got no proof that they really contacted press. I got 0 results, while my own efforts + professional company got me over 20 articles. The press service they use for the Pro or Ultimate client is a scam as well. I traced back the service, and for what I see they only pay around $15 to distribute the press release. This is ok, although they take a margin which is simply outrageous (again a ripoff), non of the sites are actually real companies, but all are copies with sometimes fancy, often rediculous names. I read up on it, and there is no single journalist who will ever read any of the text published there. Even more, nobody will evey read these sites, at all. You will also not find your press release on it, only using the direct link... SCAM again.
I got no proof that they reach out to potential backers on social media. Even more, the links I found are all worthless. No shares, no likes and not reaching out to the right audience at all.
I lost at least a week working with them. Until I decided to rewrite the press release, hire another company and pay for additional press coverage.
Stay away! They will steal your money and give you worthless things in return. But whats worse' while waiting on their 'delivery', you'll be losing crucial time to get your campaign funded.
