Advertising Description: 100 K Targeted Visitors
Search Engine Submission
Business Referral Page
You Tube Commercial
This company promised 100,000 visitors to your website guaranteed. It failed on all levels:
1. It took one month before the company sent me any info about what I had purchased. Naturally, some was given over the phone, but not too many details. I wanted to know exactly how the traffic worked, and the sales rep couldn't give a good explanation. I was foolish to jump in.
2. Since getting their service (over 5 months ago) , my website's Web Traffic Stats show an average of about 30 UNIQUE visitors with an average of 312 visits and an average of 1028 pages per visit. I believe that most of these visitors were just crawlers for search engines (some I submitted to myself). If traffic was sent to my site, it was probably from pop-ups, 99% of which were either blocked or closed by visitors. I believe my site's Web Traffic Stats to be CORRECT.
3. They submitted my site to Google. It is not easily found on Google.
4. The YouTube video ($1000) for my site is poor quality; it doesn't display the site's main page, and has little to do with the products on my site. It is just a generic, stock Flash video file with my site's name incorporated.
5. The salesman who sold their package to me put a large emphasis on commissions, making GlobalWebEx.com sound like an MLM type of business. Supposedly, there could be even 4K a month made from people signing up under me. In 5 months, I have received $400 total from commissions. When contacting the company to inquire about commissions, the rep emphasized that the company sells web traffic, and seemed to think that the commissions were just a small bonus.
6. You do sign a contract stating among other things that "GWE makes no guarantees as to sales, conversions or information
gathering. GWE does not guarantee that viewers that see a client’s ad will buy or shop
the client’s products." So the company does protect itself.
MY WARNING IS SIMPLY THAT THIS IS NOT A WORTHWHILE INVESTMENT.
