I purchased Talk Fusion just for the tools, not as a re-seller/affiliate/biz op. So...I had no intention of making money promoting their products. Their tools consist of Video Email, Video Conferencing, Video Newsletters, Live Broadcasting, etc...

The tool suite is designed to help BUSINESS OWNERS market their business. 

However, Talk Fusion only gives you 3 days to learn, test, and evaluate the products. I made the mistake of waiting 7 days before using the Video Conferencing, which was the main thing I was interested in. 

It did NOT work for me...apparently my internet speed was not sufficient to support the streaming. And this was the main tool i wanted to use! 

So, Assuming I had 30 days to cancel or get a refund, like most legitimate companies offer, I contact them to cancel and get a refund of the $285 I spent. They refused, citing their 3 day policy, which as you can very easily see is absurd, considering the amount of software they have, and considering I OWN AND OPERATE A BUSINESS! HELLOOOO??? Business people are BUSY and don't have time to spend 3 days straight evaluating business tools exclusively! 

My advice.....if you want these tools.....get PURE LEVERAGE by GVO...it's $24.95 a month and comes with the SAME SUITE OF TOOLS! 

Had Talk Fusion merely refunded my money, I would not be writing this, and driving traffic to Pure Leverage! Have they ever heard that negative advertising goes much further than the positive? 

Good job guys....Time for me to promote that Talk Fusion/Pure Leverage Comparison Chart on Facebook, twitter, and all my other social outlets.

Talk Fusion Response

AUTHOR: Talk Fusion - ()

This purchase is 100% valid for the following reasons:

Ms. Pierce purchased the product on January 2, 2013 online from the Talk Fusion website, www.talkfusion.com.  Among the Terms Ms. Pierce agreed to was the 3-day refund policy.

Per Talk Fusion’s Legal Counsel, the Policies & Procedures are written in accordance with State and Federal Law.

Please note, all system requirements are posted at www.talkfusion.com to allow users to ensure adequate resources are available.  When anybody is broadcasting,  the Talk Fusion servers take all of the inbound streams,  both video and audio, and  then combines them in order rebroadcast it back to the viewer(s). Even if you are not talking but your microphone is on, you are still sending data.

The person who has the least amount of resources (whose camera is lit up), the server is waiting for the data to be received;  so it can be redistribute the data to all other parties on the conference. If their bandwidth is bad, it can create a delay for all viewers; regardless of the bandwidth strength of other participants on the broadcast.  This is not within the control of Talk Fusion, nor is it an indication that the Talk Fusion product does not work.

Talk Fusion stands by our previous decision that no refund is due.
