Yodle Complaint - Yodle or Yodle.com - Pay Per Click Advertising
If you are thinking of using Yodle.com to do your internet advertising please take my advice and DON’T do it. I was a Google Adwords user and our business has done quite well with Adwords. We have been using Adwords for about 18 months. I have had many companies call and offer to manage our pay per click campaigns for us. Most wanted a 12 month contract. Yodle only asked for a 3 month contract. [snip] was the sales representative I worked with. She claimed Yodle would increase my “click per call” ratio from 10% to 30%. They wanted 3 months because they said it would increase about 10% per month as they adjusted our keywords. I am 20 days into the program and it has been horrible. Here is the short list:
We went 2 weeks without a single call or request for information.
They are charging us for a lot of clicks in parts of the country where we do not want out ads showing.
They have used $800 so far and produced only 1 decent lead. (3 contacts total)
$800 with our own program would have produced 10-15 leads
They are charging us $10-15 per click and placing our ads in positions we would have only paid $4 per click.
I am going to fight them on payment and the contract. I consider their sales pitch to be fraudulent. Even if it was matching or close to what we were producing I would be fine. They are really hurting our business. Before I signed up with Yodle I tried to find reviews about them. I couldn’t find many positive reviews but there were no negative review. So here is your warning! Signing with Yodle has been a disaster. I am going to put our own ads back up and just pay double if I have to.
