This post follows on from my report can you trust an internet marketing guru So here we have the marketing gurus bad boy’s list.
Marketing Gurus Hall of Shame
• Chris Carpenter
I purchased Google Cash Detective 2 (GDC2) from Chris at $2000. It is a great product, but some months ago it suddenly stopped working. There was no explanation and he did not contact any of his customers to let them know what was going on! I submitted many tickets to his help desk, but nothing….
And to top it all like many marketing gurus he has the nerve to continually promote other people’s products to get the affiliate commissions. Do you think that I would buy anything you recommend Chris when you don’t ever sort your own product out. No way fella! He’s one of those unhelpful marketing gurus.
I know that GCD3 being launched, but its going to be hard to recommend that with my hand on my heart to you guys.
• Amish Shah and Jay Styles
I have grouped these marketing gurus together as I purchased a product at $3000 from them which turned out to be beta version of what now being marketed. You can probably guess what it is. There were countless problems and quite a lot of the people within the forum were complaining.
Unfortunately, I was pass the refund period but did ask these marketing gurus for one anyway. I must say in defense that one of my payments was reversed, so I did get a part refund. So these marketing gurus were trying I guess…
However, just to give you an example of the lack of customer service from these marketing gurus. The part of the system that created a blog was being changed, but when we the customers asked for the training on how to actually use this new version as it had dramatically changed, we ended up waiting over 5 months to get it. Oh it was actually made ready for the new launch…. Funny that, what a co-incidence! Am I being a bit cynical here?
With the new product was launched the forum was removed and archived, so the new customers obviously cannot see all the negative stuff. These particular marketing gurus cannot expect me to buy anything from them i will not recommend any of their stuff to my subscribers!
One thing here guys, the customers of the first version have had their accounts upgraded to the new launch version, so it will be interesting how that works.
I will keep my readers informed……So perhaps things maybe changing here. Again this is a real shame as their is some great stuff in the course materials.
• Howie Schwartz
I have got loads of emails from Howie and was of the opinion that he was one of the good guys. But I bought his Mobile Money Sites product and all I had to do was count the money, the sales letter said, it’s all done for you he said, we will send you the traffic he said. You can see all your stats, well that’s sadly true…..
I know that there are no guarantees but the product cost $1495 and net income after 6 months later, get ready for it drum roll please …………$11, yes that all folks!
Now that’s no good for online profit then is it Howie?
Despite contacting his customer service many times regarding the traffic and revenue or lack of it. There only response was to offer a 6 month offer on one of his other products. That is OK but if the mobile course does not work, there no guarantees that this one will either!
Do you think I will be purchasing anything more from Howie? Mmmmm, need to think about that… This is real shame as i thought that here was finally someone that i know, like and trust. I think trust just went out the window!
Guys I am sorry to be so negative and this is bad Karmer but these guys have caused me to be this way, and they should know better!! web profits
Marketing Gurus Shame On You!
