Here’s an example of how you can be tricked by unscrupulous companies. The following was in our mail today…

Hi, hope all is well. I know you’re probably very busy so I’ll get straight to the point: I follow your site expertbasementrepair.com and really like what you do, so I really want to see your business take off. As a small business owner myself, I thought you would really benefit from something that worked tremendously well for me, attracting a ton of traffic and new customers. It’s this new thing called a “video testimonial.” In plain English, it’s basically a mini commercial for your biz, but you can write your own script, choose your own actor, and it’s pretty darn cheap for what you’re getting. I tried it out for my own biz and it turned out great. It’s like a review for your business but it looks like an actual customer did it, blogging about your product because they’re so satisfied with it. It’s the best business expenses and the best investment I’ve ever made, and you can try it out at http://www.buy-testimonials.org. Keep up the good work.
These companys are also using a very persuasive power point presentation in which they make claims about other competitiors which are not true, and some of their material is total fabricated. High ratings on the BBB can be…purchased. Spend a lot of money with them and you’ll get a high rating, regardless of complaints and lawsuits. They will also convince you with very powerful sales tricks to not even consider talking to any other company. They make a powerful arguement to sign up …today. Would you buy an expensive item item without shopping around ??? Give this some serious consideration!!! We high suggest : Please get another opinion…even if it’s not ours!!! If you’re being pressured to sign up today and not call anyone else …well, we warned you.
This is something we would never consider. There are, however, one or two companies in this area using this method of promotion. Please do your background homework on any company you are thinking about using, including us!
