Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I had engaged in this company to provide SEO service to my website on a 6 month contract, promising to place me on 1st page of google within that period.

After 6 months, they did not achieve their goal and refused to continue working free of charged (as promised in their deal).

Each time I called to speak to my account manager, they were either too busy to speak or return my calls, away sick, on holidays, etc.

They never bothered to return my calls and found that I had to beg them to look at my website and push them to do what they were paid to do!

Given that I paid $400 per month for a period of 6 months, it was money down the drain and it did nothing at all for my business!

Don't ever use these guys!!!  They misrepresent themselves, they don't do what they're paid to do and they just take your money with no rendered services!

Seek the services of a local person who is honest and prepared to work with you rather than take your money and run!

I've had to learn the hard way unfortunately and have lost almost $2500 in this lesson.

WARNING Run Away From SponsoredLinx

AUTHOR: Char19 - ()

If you see or hear from SponsoredLinx, run far away as you can. There are other companies out there who can help you create ads and youtube video to help the poor business learn and collect their date to optimise their business. We were scammed into SponsoredLinx and for $400 in less than a week, they did absolutelly nothing, left nothing and continued to debit our credit card when they are not meant to. We are still in dispute and they refuse to return calls. Bunch of scams using Google name. For $90 per week of management fee, they cant even call or ring you once a week or correct ads. Their ads constantlly get rejected by Google - WOW - that's expert for you. If you didn't understand the sarcasm, YOU WILL BE WASTING MONEY AND TIME with SponsoredLinx. DO not give them your credit card.

SposoredLinx is an absolute scam

AUTHOR: Doug - (Australia)

I have a bad experience with these clowns as well. Its like I was dealing with a third world country company. Their only concern is how to rip you off quickly, lock you in some ridiculous contract and that's it.

I also suggest that instead of posting the above post as a "former employee" (I bet that's someone from the management of this clowns) you rather employ a decent people who know their job instead of posing as a former employee and trying to cover up your appalling services.

This is simply not true! SponsoredLinX Rock

AUTHOR: SuperYoda - (United States of America)

I used to work at this company and was personally involved in this project, and this is not simply true!, 

The client was requesting a refund because only 3 of his 30 keywords, wasn't ranking! 

The client then demanded a full refund, which of course was denied because of the results of 90% of the other keywords was achived. The client wasn't happy because he wanted one more keyword ranking, which later did. Because he was outside of his gaurantee was obviously denied he then put up these reviews. Outrageous!

SponsoredLinX are one of the best Australia, they have simply worked with ten's of thousands of clients, so this stuff is expected. I guess it is a case of taking the little bad with outstanding results they get.
