Become a Top Wedding Planner – Beware of Inexpensive Offers to Help You with Marketing

 

The other day I received an email from a marketing company that said they would be happy have ten reviewers give me “honest”  feedback on my website and give me ideas on how to improve it. The cost was $15 for ten reviews.

It sounded a little odd and I wondered if the company was legitimate, so I did some investigation.

This is what I found:

  • There was very little information about them on their website.
  • The customers they featured on their site had very similar looking websites, even though they were from a different countries.
  • One sample customer website was actually a Firefox.com add-on application page. I don’t think that would be an actual customer.
  • I checked their Twitter account and all tweets had a link to URLs which did not exist.
  • Their “reviewers” are just random people. In fact, anyone can sign up to be a “reviewer.”

I can’t really say this isn’t a legitimate business, they probably do give feedback on websites. However, it’s questionable as to how valuable that feedback would be for any website owner, especially wedding planners. We need information from out target audience of brides, not a random mix of people.

The bottom line, be careful if someone emails you, whom you do not know and have never heard of, with an offer to help you improve your business for a low cost. Do a little research and get to know them before you invest any of your hard-earned money.
