Several months ago, I was contacted by a salesman from Signpost. He was relentless in getting thru to me to advertise my business as he had seen my ads on Groupon. "We are just like Groupon, except we put you on up to 30 sites at one time."
The truth is that they are nothing like groupon. The mail ads out to all of the sites, and if the sites want to publish the ad, they may do so. For this misrepresented service, they chare you up-front $499 for 90 days. The 90 days begins the day you pay, and it may take them 2-3 weeks to create the offer.
They sent me an email that said my "Offer has gone live." I don't know what that means as there were no sales at all of the offer. After a month and only having sold 2 vouchers, I told them that their program wasn't working. I suspected that the ads weren't being placed as we usually sell all over the Chicagoland area, or that they were placing them in the wrong state. Then, they told me, "Our program is very much different from Groupon. Their program is ad based, ours is technology based. It usually takes 3-6 months before it works."
This is not at all what was represented in their sales. I have copies of their emails. It is not what I bought. I told them what their promises were. They persisted in doing nothing except recommend that I change the ad that on Groupon had sold 5000 units to make it more saleable.
This company is a total fraud. They lie on their sales presentation to get their up front money. They are nothing like a legitimate company like Groupon or Living Social. What they are is an ad agency that "hopes" they can get you published by the websites.
Don't go anywhere near them and hang onto you money!!
This is true,
