Complaint Review: Funded today
Funded today False hope for eager startups Internet
I signed up with Funded Today to help get my kickstarter in front of the thousands of people they promise to. At first they seem very generous and eager to help out and set up a Skype call to welcome you. Make you feel like you did something worth the money. They have quite the niche. They feed off hungry kickstarter campaigns. Figure the people, like myself, who spent a lot of time, money, and effort to make a product, want to find the best way to market it. They show up on top of most of theach crowdfunding searches. That's easy when you have plenty of money to do so. I'm sure they can do a good job with projects that have the money to make professional videos and campaigns, but for those of us who are not as lucky, they promise the world but fail to deliver. In secrecy no less. See, they take your information and choose to do what they want with it. For the due diligence "test period" they run for $3000 over 7 days, they run Facebook and instagram ads with pictures that are supplied. I gave over 80 pics and videos to show different aspects of my product, and they chose some basic non descriptive pictures instead of one's I recommended and don't tell or show how it's working out until you beg and it's basically too late then. And they don't show the pictures until your test period is over. A simple conversation after maybe a day or 2 of "testing" could really help fix any problem areas. Pause the test, let us take your suggestions, and finish the final 5 days. Don't just keep running the same poor ads that are obviously not working and continue to waste money. It's called customer service. I figured it out afterwards. It seems like the company is run by a bunch of young (un)professionals who are good with social media. Who don't know how to deal with people on a face to face level and try to help them with issues. Just click through and collect the next $3k and keep moving on. I contacted another company while waiting for my funds to clear and they actually and honestly said "at this point of your campaign (was already 2 weeks in) I don't think we can help you out. We recommend you do xxxx and then re-launch and we would he happy to help." Similar responses from Agency 2.0 and Backer club. I urge you to check them out and leave funded today off your list. They could have saved themselves from another Ripoff report if they answered these questions off the "review" that I doubt they ever read....
