Has anyone successfully gotten their money back from CrowdFundBuzz? It's clear that their services don't do what they promise. Has anyone fought them on this before?

I am new at this and find it very alarming. If I read all the above posts right, the following services are questionable:
1. Ayudos
2. Crowdfundbuzz
3. Crowfundpros
4. Promotemycrowdfunding
5. Kinship Marketing

Ayudos is recommended on the Crow Crux web site and I thought they were a reputable company. Can you Sbriggman comment anything on this?

Where can I find a company that is reliable as for providing marketing help for a Kickstarter project?

Any help is highly appreciated.

I actually don't recommend or not recommend Ayudos' paid services. At the time I included them (like 8 months ago?), they had a free option to be included on the front page. I just checked their website and it says "Get Your Crowdfunding Project Featured on Our Homepage! Free Article Submission or Full Social Media and Press Release Marketing Below."

If they are not delivering on this free service, let me know and I can consider removing them from that post. I don't endorse any of their paid options.

Regarding Kinship marketing, check out this really bad review: http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/04/01/ ... ckstarter/

The more reliable services in my experience tend to be the pricer ones that take on a small number of clients. I've heard decent reviews of http://www.crowdfundmafia.com/ and http://commandpartners.com/startup-serv ... -marketing

If you mention I sent you, I might get a small commission in the future.

A full list (though I don't endorse any) - http://www.directory.crowdcrux.com

We have two exciting partnership opportunities that are in the works. I welcome all of your feedback (positive and negative) as we work to service this new industry and figure out the best practices to help creators on a large scale.

Hi Sal ,

Would you be so kind and give us a tips , which brand is good to help us with get better gogo factor ?
We got many offers from diffrent website like gogorocket or crowdfundzoom ?

Do you know anyone who will work in a success fee method ?

I think that is the best options for people with project like ours

Joe from gogorocket write us to look at this link :

some opinion about gogo rocket :

I can’t speak to many points made in the article, but I am personally convinced that GoGoRocket was a total waste of money. We had a successful campaign in the end with an attractive charity (orphans in Congo) yet our visibility actually declined after I parted with my $75. But all donations raised were through our personal connections. Indiegogo is great, but stay away from GoGoRocket.

So what to do ?

[color=#000000]Hello,

I'm Mike, Editor and Founder of Ayudos.com. I just want to respond to some comments or references about our site made in this thread below.

ReelKlip1 wrote:I would like to also include that ayudos and crowdfundbuzz are a scam, they took our money and wrote a copy and paste press release with spelling errors. When we confronted them about it they said that even The New York Times makes spelling errors and sent us a copy of some article that had errors on it. They didn't even fix it, like seriously guys these people are ruthless scammers making a joke out of project creators and taking their money for crap worthless work. I will never invest in these two ever again and warn everyone to be careful when you look for promotional services.


@Reelklip I remember your project personally and that you were upset with our service and I also remember you getting a refund for this.

sbriggman wrote:@reelklip - Thanks for sharing. Yes, have heard mixed things about both companies. At the very least, they should have fixed it and or issued a new one if they already sent it out.


Hey Sal, We do offer to fix and edit all articles and press releases as well as review any material that is published on our blog or any where else. We also provide refunds to anyone who is dissatisfied with our marketing / promotions or other services.

We also still offer a free service for submitting projects and articles as well as a weekly giveaway for free exposure to any and all projects that are interested.

We have seen several websites copy and paste our sites content and sell it as their own including Crowfundpros
and Promotemycrowdfunding.

It seems that every week there is a new crowdfunding promotions or marketing service popping up offering the same services for the same prices with basically the same content and images.

With the growth of crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, this problem is only going to grow.

I look forward to any responses or comments.

Thanks,
Mike G.

Yikes. Were there any stats behind these groups? Or did they just come in with unproven promises?
