[Testimonials] Can Anything Be Done?!

by 5 comments
Hi all!...

This isn't bugging me, but it is! Now so that I comply with forum rules, I'll keep any names out of it. (And I'd appreciate it if you could too!)

Now to cut what could turn into a long story short, it's to do with a script that I provided a testimonial for a while back. (I know a few other warriors did the same, and I don't know how they feel about it!)

I was pretty new to the internet marketing scene at that point I believe, but now I keep seeing my name and testimonial cropping up all over the place. At the time, the script seemed to be fine, but now I believe the owner has almost done a runner. (At least thats what it read like when a few other threads cropped up talking about this guy!)

1. Should I forget about this and just move on?!
2. Try and contact all these people, and ask if they could remove the testimonial?!

Am I right in thinking that they should have asked my permission to show the testimonial on more than the one website? Cause if I remember rightly, there was some relseere licenses sold and they took the salespage as their 'own' with the testimonails that were provided.

I look forward to your input guys and gals!

    Hi Mark,

    if it is who I think it is and it was for a membership script, I think you'll be banging your head off a brick wall. I asked the person to remove my testimonial (which I provided as a beta-tester) as the person did a runner with some money I paid for a custom script.

    [edit]I just found the person's site, and it IS who I think it is... I can see your TM.

    Kindest regards,

      I did ask for some honest advice Karl, so thanks!

      (And yes, you would be right about a membership script! - We'll leave it at that though! LOL)

    If you grew up and went to public school in North America, you know that the school system here is far from perfect. Kids have all different experiences, but one common thread is that everybody learns how to be an employee and not a manager. School isn’t just designed to teach you math, science and English, there are also lessons contained in the actual structure of school itself. When you hear the bell and it directs you to class, you’re learning to follow directions in a very Pavlovian fashion. You know that you can’t get caught in the hallways during class time, so you respond to the bell in order to avoid punishment. When you go into the classroom and sit in your spot in the row of desks and you know you’re not permitted to talk to other students and that the teacher has control of the class, you’re learning that your place in society is to quietly submit to authority.

    Just a quick question for you internet marketing gurus, or for those of you who have a bit of experience in marketing your own businesses. Which social media platform drives the most traffic to your website? Im obviously going to invest a bit of time and money in advertising my business through each of the main platforms, facebook, twitter, instagram etc. I was just wondering, more out of interest than anything (because as I said, I intend to utilize each platform to its max for my business) which of these social media platforms is responsible for the highest amount of visitors to your website?

    I was reflecting on some of the things I have been working on over the past few months since I have been doing IM full time and I thought it's been a massive learning curve but I am making some progress. I've done a few little things that have helped keep me focused now that I don't have the physical motivation of a boss and a workplace surrounding me to crack the whip so to speak when I get a little lost and unmotivated during my work day.

    Hey guys - I have a question that I've been thinking about a fair amount and wanted to discuss with all of you. SEO is one of the main areas of focus for internet marketing - there are a lot of people building websites and competing for search engine traffic. There is so much information out there about search engine optimization and you can virtually get lost for days trying to figure out what the best way is to promote your website or the product that you're selling through search engine rankings.
