SCAM & WASTE OF MONEY!!! Peter Szabo - Lead Evolution Coaching/Consulting/Facebook https://peterszabo.co/ Lead EvoLead EvolutionFacebook Marketing Peter Szaboszabocpa@gmail.com (his email). 

 

Our company hired Peter Szabo and Lead Evolotion (LeadEvo) to do Facebook Marketing for us.

They promised RESULTS Guaranteed and all the bells and whistles. All B.S!!!

His video on his website states "If you don't make the call or are in the car" during the first call, then he will NO longer work with you.

He is a Hippocrite! His first meeting with us he was 1-Hour Late!!!

He didn't have a good excuse and it was supposed to be a deep dive 1 hour call to know our business. Instead he only took 30-minutes and his suggestions were things we already did. 

He ISN'T an expert he and his company is a SCAM and Full of S***!!!

 

LONG STORY SHORT:

  1. Wasted $2000/month and ZERO Sales!!!
  2. He was supposed to be a Funnel Marketing expert. He NEVER discussed our marketing funnel and never spoke to us after the first call which he was 1 hour late!
  3. He was supposed to be a Facebook marketing expert. He just worked with his team and got us ZERO sales and Results!!!

OVERALL, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, ENERGY OR MONEY WITH PETER SZABO OR LEAD EVOLUTION OR WHATEVER THEY CALL THEMSELVES.

 

THIS IS A WARNING... SAVE YOURSELVE THE HASSLE.

ONLY IF WE KNOW THIS BEFORE WE JOINED!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

I had a different experience with this company

AUTHOR: Alexander - (United States)

I just completed my "free consultation"/sales call with this company and my experience was quite different from the complaint registered here.  I don't really ever write this kind of thing, but if it were my business, I'd sure love it if one of my other customers wrote in to stand up for me.

1) I have not yet made a final decision to use the services of Peter Szabo's company, but I'm leaning heavily towards working with them


2) The consultation call was FANTASTIC.  I already run a highly profitable business, I have worked with many consultants and mentors, and I'm not a rookie, but I got a ton of solid, actionable advice in my free consultation call.

3) There was ZERO pressure to sign up as a client.  In fact, the rep I was on the phone with suggested that I send him some more of my pages for him to give feedback on, have me implement his suggestions, and then after things were rolling, we could circle back and talk about engaging their services.  

No crazy promises were made, no pressure, just solid information and ideas that could improve my marketing strategy, plus some important points of FB compliance that my team had missed.

Anyway, that's my experience so far, and based on what I see here, I'm still most likely going to go ahead and work with this company.  And I suppose that puts me under an ethical obligation to post back here if things go radically south... but I don't think that's going to happen.

Appreciate your feedback!

AUTHOR: Peter - (LA)

Hey! 

I'm not entirely sure who wrote this as we don't have a client named Susan. Either way, please send me an e-mail and let's resolve this.

I'm a bit a shocked you posted this without getting in touch with me first to find common ground and a resolution. 

At the same time, I can understand: paid ads can be frustratring at times. You're spending money on ads and not immediately seeing a return. Sometimes it seems like some ads are just "burning money" (you're purchasing data). I completely feel your pain, however it's a part of the process. It's the nature of the game. Especially in the beginning, you'll have to spend a bunch of money on testin, figuring out what works vs. what doesn't and eventually you'll find a campaign that generates a return-on-ad-spend. 

And all of that depends on multiple variables:

  • your ads
  • your sales funnel
  • positioning
  • USP
  • offer
  • niche
  • sales process
  • and more

I always tell my clients. Facebook ads are roughly 20% of the "success equation". The other 80% is in the things listed above, therefore we make it extremely clear on each part of the process (from the sales call, through the welcome video to the onboarding call) that your success is based on our mutual commitment.

On top of that, we do a pretty good job explaining that this is a PROCESS. We do NOT deliver overnight miracles. This whole thing takes patience, persistence, tenacity and a decent budget, thus we ask every single client to give us a reasonable timeframe of at least 3 months to help them generate the desired results.

Sure, we had some pretty cool home-runs such as taking clients from 0 to $1,000 a day in profit OR 0 to $50K/mo OR even 0 to $80K/mo in a few short months. We also had the amazing chance to work with a bit more established businesses where we had the chance to double, even triple leadflow / revenue in a matter of weeks (it was all about finding leverage points).

Many of these are documented at https://leadevo.com/success-stories

Of course, we're not just going to promise results like that to everyone. That'd be an insult to your intelligence. Any business has risk involved, on top of that marketing and sales take time. Rome wasn't built overnight. These things need to be tested and perfected continuously and that takes a great bit of courage, patience, persistence and of course a marketing budget. 

We made it very easy for our clients: no commitments (they can cancel after month 1) and a threw in "work with you until you succeed" type of guarantee IF they give us the minimum, reasonanble timeframe of 90 days needed to help them generate an ROI. If we fail to do so within 90 days, we'd work with them for an extra 90 days free of charge to help them recoup their investment. We didn't need to use this guarantee often, but when we had to, we did honour our word. All of this is clearly explained on the sales call + our contract that every single client has to sign.

----

If I was late to our meeting, I do apologise. I have a pretty busy schedule becasue I travel nearly half of the year for speaking engagements or just attending masterminds and seminars. Of course, human errors sometimes happen, but anytime I'm late I do send out an e-mail in advance with an apology.

----

Based on the initial message, I assume the client was with us for a single month. We did explain we can't make magic happen in a single month -- we were very clear about this. I'm not sure where the misunderstanding or miscommunication stems from. 

Like I said, in some cases we could deliver breathtaking results in a matter of weeks. On the other hand, we did have some clients who were initially concerned for a couple weeks, even up to a month - but eventually things got dialled in. I understand where the fear and frustration comes from as I've been running ads for 8+ years now. It's completely normal, so we try to reassure them to the best of our ability, put them back on track and explain that results WILL come... it may just not happen right out of the gate.

----

Conclusion

Overall, I'm pretty shocked someone wrote this and called me names without any sort of action to try to resolve this beforehand.  I did notify my attorney as there was a breach of contract in multiple clauses from the client's side.

A big lesson learned: filter clients better. Obviously we can't help everyone and even though we already put all prospects through a 2 phase vetting process, it seems like it's still not enough. Before we start working together I'll personally ensure they understand and agree to our mutual committment clause and timeframes. Otherwise, we'll just refund them on the spot and wish them good luck. Unless we're both very clear and on the same page, it's just not worth it.

I'm still happy to talk to the poster to figure out what went wrong and find a solution.
