Buzzcity.com - Your Thoughts?

7 replies
My partner and I are into MOBE and we decided to go for mobile marketing. So, we've used buzzcity (like 2 weeks back) and have had sign ups ( 19 out of 1,200 clicks).

The problem is that most of the subscriptions are not coming from the countries we've targeted. According to support it's coz of black berry settings we've set up and whatever crap they are talking about.

So now we've switched them all off, the clicks are still there but no subscription since we change settings... Now we're thinking is this really for real?

My question is, do you think this is worth going forward or should we look else where?

Also, we've entered some $500 credit to the account and want it back. They say they don't do refunds. Any opinion/suggestion on this?

I'd really appreciate your thoughts on this.

Thanks in advance!

    Did they ask for a photo id from you?

    They won't even "accept" my money (even though it was deposited from paypal for several days already), until I fill out form with photo id. I'm no scammer, but I dont like my personal info out there in Singapore.

      Unfortunately yes, you have to submit this together with your TOA. I think it's just fine, considering the number of scammer out in the open, it's hard for them to keep up.

    Hi,

    I have never used this site or heard of them.

    But.. just to help you out for the future, especially if you are a beginner.

    Add WOT ( Web Of Trust ) to your browser ( Mozilla FireFox Or Google Chrome ), to see the website ratings. If the website is well established and trustworthy, there will be a green light circle. If a website is not trustworthy there will be orange light. And if the website is known scammer, there will be a red light circle.

    You have to check the reputation of the site before you buy anything online and this guys look like scammers when I open them in WOT.

    Here is the link to WOT ratings of BuzzCity.

    It sound like they were using bots and not a real human.clicks.

    Hope this helps at list a bit, you will have to fight, hope you get your money back.

    Geena

    And Guys don't ever, ever just give out your ID information or any personal info just like that, without thorough, thorough research.

      Thank you for the reminder. But this was a recommended site by a reputable marketer (Paul Lynch) which I have purchased a membership account with. So the question of legitimacy is out of the way, only thing that's left is if it works.

      How do you know that you can trust WOT? They say that their ratings are based on millions of user's experiences. "Millions" seems rather high. Who are the users that they are referring to? How do they find the users? Where are the users coming from? Does WOT have an agenda or are they biased?

      I looked at the rating that you linked to and they say that they have 0 information from third party sources and have only 1 user review. Doesn't seem like very much on which to base a rating/opinion.

      A couple of years ago, I was checking backlinks and I found my site listed on some site that claimed my site to be spam. Odd thing was that the owner of that site actually was a competitor just trying to convince viewers not to look at my site.
