CharuInteractive.com has tarnished my online marketing in two months. Matt Knollhoff and Emil had contacted me to increase my traffic and conversions from online. Instead they have cost my company years of marketing efforts and still waiting for my refund on my billing. When I hired a new agency to recover the damages I found Charu Interactive had not done any extra work on my site and actually caused the problems. They charged me for 3 months of work upfront, only refunded me one month and the CEO or the Boss he calls himself Matt  Knolhoffand his counterpart Emil have moved office locations. This is very fraudulent and unethical agency and do not work with them.

Charu Interactive Hires Newbee Interns is True

AUTHOR: ChicagoPastaNBeer - (United States)

POSTED: Thursday, December 06, 2018

Matt Knolhoff CEO of Charu Interactive approached us in 2016 after he left ReachLocal. After an elaborate proposal we signed on for marketing after months of no results and looking into cancelling, we came across this report.

When we brought up to Matt he claimed it was disgruntled competitor and his past employer ReachLocal. WEll I CAME ACROSS THIS PICTURE in local newspaper today of him at Hoffman Estates High School AND IT IS CLEAR CHARUINTERACTIVE does not hire college grads and seems recruit fresh out of high school.

I feel fooled by a con man and his company.  DO not do BUSINESS or trust THIS PERSON OR COMPANY for you marketing.

Fake Review

AUTHOR: Matt - (USA)

POSTED: Tuesday, June 21, 2016

It angers me that I have to write a dispute to this fake review but I will.

We know who the person is that wrote these reviews that he's placed on multiple publishers.

We are a small company with 13 clients of which have been with me since the begining. If you would like to see our positive reviews on a reputable site, look at Google https://goo.gl/GWy0Bf anyone can publish anything on ROR and unfortunatley they dont take it down.


I'm sorry to this person that feels this is the best course of action for not being able to work with my company.


We look for hardworkers with a passion to help businesses with their online advertising.


Sincerely and don't judge,

Matt Knolhoff CEO
