Complaint Review: Social Media Science
Social Media Science was recommended to us from a business coach we thought that we could trust. Really they were both taking advantage of us and essentially gobbling money from us without offering any value in return.
We spent $56,000 with this company and they never even completed our blog! We take the responsibility of being naive enough to give them this much money and trust they would help achieve the great promises they made. However, for this company to be okay with this and not have any issues is the concern.
They got our trust based on mutual aquitances and offering us great results.
We were even told we're getting special treatment because of our connection...absolute hogwash.
This company spent time with us in meetings that had absolutely nothing to do with SEO, they were babbling on about business mentality etc. We've gone to seminars, we read books (e-myth etc), we didn't pay for that we paid for SEO help!
This company was paid tens of thousands of dollars and we came to find out they outsource a web developer from the Phillipines...yes you're reading this correctly. They get on a freelance website, hire a developer to do work on a $56,000 job.
They likely paid the fellow around $1,000 - $2,000 while they kept all our money.
To top it off this freelancer wasn't even good or reliable. Our blog was never completed, the design never finished, nothing was ever done except small research on keywords!
For $56,000 this company gave us an uncompleted blog, some word documents, waste of time web meetings, and keyword research...
Stay far away from SYYND and Social Media Science, they are ruthless businessmen who have no morals or remorse for taking young, start-ups money.
We haven't gone out of our way to publicize this robbery until now because over the past year and a half we have thoroughly educated ourselves on SEO and the more we learn the more we realize how much of a robbery this really was.
