Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW

EDitor's UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to AsSeenOnTV.pro for its full commitment to quality customer service.

Ripoff Report's discussions with AsSeenOnTV.pro have uncovered an ongoing dedication by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any concerns. AsSeenOnTV.pro listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

AsSeenOnTV.pro/ASONTV's principal, Paul Doug Scott and his Co-Executive Producer Kevin Harrington's philosophy - client's success is first and foremost. As a successful businessman, Mr. Scott believes it is critical to listen to his clients and respond timely. By always keeping an open line of communication with all their clients, Mr. Scott ensures to maintain AsSeenOnTV.pro as a successful DRTV company. Another top executive, Steve Ketchen, told us that Mr. Scott is hands on during the entire production process and always tries to raise the bar of excellence.

AsSeenOnTV.pro/ASONTV's Angelo Ferraro says this, "We are a team of creative and talented people who work as one to complete every production. Our production and post production staff is comprised of some of the most experienced and talented individuals in the industry "

One of the things Ripoff Report learned in the course of its review is that none of the Ripoff Report reviews were actual clients of AsSeenOnTV.pro. Instead, they were organizations contacted by phone being offered a potential opportunity to work with Kevin Harrington. In fact, Kevin Harrington Inc's actual clients were extremely satisfied and reported back, "Working with Kevin Harrington Inc has been one of our best investments in our 31 years in business. Massive thumbs up!

The commercial is a fantastic marketing tool that will continue to make money for us for many years to come!"



The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Paul Douglas and Lisa Vrancken during an onsite inspection held by a third-party verification company with no biases towards AsSeenOnTV.pro.

Fortune Media Group is a full-service production company currently doing business as ASONTV. Their extensive array of products allow their clients to utilize them as a one-stop shop. Paul Douglas stated the following about his company, "We do everything from commercial development to corporate videos to long and short form infomercials. We also have production services like editing suites for rent, insert studios for rent." Because of their vast services Fortune Media Group has several projects under their umbrella. Lisa Vrancken further explained, "because we do so many different things, because we are so well diversified in the production world, we have different campaigns, different product evaluators, product managers, as well as producers working on. Hence the different names that were utilized. Our corporate legal entity name is Fortune Media Group. Our DBA that is registered is ASONTV. AsSeenOnTv.pro is the eCommerce site of Kevin Harrington and Brian Harrington. We operate that eCommerce site under that umbrella."

Leads for Fortune Media Group are obtained through specific product categories on their website. These categories range from health, beauty, fitness, home essentials, and things of that nature. Mr. Douglas further explained, "we have a research department here that searches out trade shows, expos, press releases, and articles for products that are under each of those categories. Our research department does some research on the company and finds out where they are selling, what their price points are, where they distribute. That information is given to our product manager. A product manager is responsible for having a conversation with that organization to discuss their product, how it might relate to our services, what we offer them as far as our services are concerned." From their the client would send in a sample of their product that would be reviewed by Fortune Media Group's internal staff. Mr. Douglas explained the final steps in the sales and services process, "we circle back with them after they have sent us the product and we have evaluated it and looked at it and they have gone through the project time lines that we sent them. We do a follow up call to see if there is interested and they want to participate with us. If they are interested and want to participate, we send them a participation agreement that lays out all the parameters, all the deliverables. Once that is signed off on, they send it back to us, I review it and countersign it and we begin the production aspects of the agreement. We do this roughly around 400-500 times a year."



CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – AS SEEN ON TV.PRO

During the on-site interview, Mr. Douglas and Ms. Vrancken were asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Ms. Vrancken expressed that they rarely receive complaints on their services. However, occasionally clients will have different expectations on the final product, "upon their final edit, I contact them to discuss with them how to leverage their tools. I know we are extremely clear about the expectations that they should have whether it be on the tv show or on the commercial. Sometimes I think no matter how much clarity you give a participant, they may have expectations that exceed what a media test would truly provide. Although we are very clear about that, it might be a cause for dissatisfaction. That is a very very small group. We have testimonial letters that we can provide to anyone, from real participants that are extraordinary, and we have done extraordinary things for our products taking them to retail."

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mr. Douglas and Ms. Vrancken expressed that all the comments were false and created by an ex-employee. Ms. Vrancken further stated, "it really needs to be made extremely clear that the only reason we are on Ripoff is because of an ex-employee. He was terminated for cause. He then went to work for a local competitor, and he wanted to cause harm to our company. He utilized Ripoff as a means to do so. In tying all the different campaign names that we use and the like. Any time we do a new project, he’s on Ripoff initiating “oh and they are tied into this company” to cause us harm. And has it? It has." In order to assure future and current clientele Fortune Media Group works directly with the Florida Atlantic University's production students, and have won many awards including the Telly Award.

When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to making things right with the consumer per the request of Ripoff Report, Ms. Vrancken stated, "we do everything for our customers, we have satisfied customers and we have testimonials. Those are people who just got a phone call to see if they want to be part of our campaign, were told about the requirements including the money."

Fortune Media Group is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, "for us it means a lot. It just substitutes and it verifies that we are a credible company and have been a credible company for over 20 years...we are open with anybody that would like to tour our facility meet with us face to face and would like to come down to see us we welcome that and would be open to that as well."

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

As Seen On TV Pro, KevinHarringtonINC.com, asseenontv.pro  Internet

ABOUT THE RIPOFF REPORT BELOW:

Ripoff Report would like to let readers know that Ripoff Report emailed this customer so the member business could make things right with them. When a business joins the Corporate Advocacy Program, Ripoff Report emails everyone from the past so the member business can make things right with them. Of course, everything within reason. In order to confirm that the complaints were resolved, Ripoff Report is copied on all responses so we can insure that the member business did right by their customer. The customer who filed a complaint down below never responded to our offer to help them.

STATEMENT FROM AS SEEN ON TV.PRO:

This report is false because it is not written from an actual client, it is a posting of a cover letter used by our organization. They were contacted by phone and sent production materials that detailed the scope of the DRTV campaign. Because of the Ripoff Report postings in the past and based on no factual information they believed this was a scam. Kevin Harrington does not need to stop AsSeenOnTV.pro because he owns the website and is directly involved with the organization. Brian Harrington, Kevin Harrington's son and advisory board member, posted a rebuttal to refute the false claim.

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

---------------------------------------------------------------------

 I was contacted by a Lauren Moser, who claimed to be "from the studios of Kevin Harrington, one of the original sharks from Shark Tank". She wanted to get me on a call with Steve Ketchen, a Product Manager, to go over details of a possible feature on an upcoming media campaign led by Kevin Harrington. She emailed me twice, first from an email with the domain: @kevinharringtoninc.com, then again from an email with the domain @asseenontv.pro. Neither websites are affiliated with the real Kevin Harrington and it seems that both domains were registered within the last few months. There is no record of a Lauren Moser ever having worked for Kevin Harrington, on his official websites or through LinkedIn connections/groups. Also after some additional light digging I see that a report has been filed on Ripoff Report about this scam. Please steer clear from these people!

#2 UPDATE Employee

Regarding AsSeenOnTV.pro posting

AUTHOR: Brian Harrington - (USA)

POSTED: Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Hey, Brian Harrington here, I've been fielding calls regarding AsSeenOnTV.pro and our DRTV campaigns. I'd like to set the record straight:

1. Kevin Harrington (my Dad) serves as the Co-Executive Producer of AsSeenOnTV.pro and films customized introductions of every product featured in the 60 second spots we produce.

2. This is a For-Profit, Independent Media Production company and there is a fee involved. The fee is considered nominal in the DRTV industry for a media test and the participants have ownership of the spots produced. An opportunity is presented; however, nobody is under any obligation to proceed, if it's not a good fit for their company.

3. The DRTV spots ABSOLUTELY air in the top 100 markets and Cable Networks. Scheduled notifications are provided in advance of airings. Affidavits of Performance are issued by the networks.

4. The company always tries to respond to all inquiries, including questions of legitimacy. The studio offers In-Studio tours to meet the team, upon request. We invite you to resubmit any inquiries.

5. On a quarterly basis, the company organizes an Innovators Think Tank in Coral Springs, Florida, for the participants of the campaign. My Dad and I are present for one-on-one meetings, as well as an impressive Advisory Board and Executive team. This event allows for a greater understanding of the DRTV industry, the role of New Digital Media and assisting our participants in potential retail opportunities.

6. Important to note: the postings on this site are NOT actual participants. Many of the actual participants of the campaign serve as references, and have written glowing testimonials about the progress they've attained as part of this opportunity.

I'm mind boggled by the number of companies that have had their good names damaged by sites that allow these types of anonymous posts. The studio will kindly address any further questions regarding this matter.

Respond to this report!
