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

Yodle uses a bait n switch cold call presentation. You are told that a marketing specialist will be appointed to your file, when in actuality, the entire program is one giant experiment that you are paying 1000s to conduct. Yodle actually knows nothing about the industries they are marketing for, so they create hundreds of adds and run them at random for several months, until they can distinguish a patter.

They promise you a lot of telephone response from internet prospects but all we got were people looking for yodle calling the yodle number to find other companies and/or competitors that yodle was also working with. When we told them about it, we got no normal response. There was no log, no credit to our account, and no further activity on our phone. They had locked us in to an initial 3 month period and took a hefty set-up fee. The leads were utterly bogus, and wound up wasting our staffs time and energy chasing fake leads. $3000.00 in one month, and not a single legit lead.

You tell them where you take clients, and they ignore you by placing adwords outside the area where you instruct them, just so they can get more clicks.

I wish I had came to this site before investing our marketing dollars with Yodle. They also ripped off our business as they did to this other people. We should start a campaign to recover our money, please contact me if anybody wishes to seek remedy. Thanks
