Advertising on another site

Postby PartyPro » Fri Jun 09, 2006 10:00 am

I tried advertising on My Mommy Biz. They took my money but never put my ad up. And they never respond to my emails. I put a post up today and so far 2 other members have had the same problem. I just can't believe it.

I advertised on HPPN and received an email with a receipt the very same day! Good service at HPPN!!

Hi Jamie,
I Had The Same Problem I Called And Got A Refund From The Place That Took The Payment For Them. We Also Got Her Phone Number (the owner of the website) When We Called She Wasn't Nice And Said Oh Well I Don't Know What To Tell You.She Tried To Also Tell Me That The Pop Up Blocker Didn't Let It Go Through. Now The Place That Took The Payment No Longer Takes Their Payments. Imagine That!

That's too bad. I paid for an ad last year and it did get placed, but I have hear a few stories like that this year. I wonder what is up? Plus you can tell the message boards are not being kept up.

This also happened to me last year! I paid for an AD and for one month I kept emailing them asking about my AD.

After a month of emails, I finally got a reply saying she would check into it and get back to me....never heard from her again.

I paid via paypal so i opened and filed a fraud complaint and I got my money refunded to me by paypal.

I have ran into atleast 12 people in the past 2 months complaining about that site taking their ADV money and not following through.

I certainly do NOT recommend that website for advertising.

Wow that stinks
I have not had the money to advertise online, but I did get a free ad for 6 months- with the option to continue next year on a new site that just started

If you go to Select WAHMS on the left side they are still doing FREE ads - I know this is not exactly what type of ads you all had but hey, every little bit helps

here is the actual link for Select WAHMS

all of you have had such a bad experience with them. I don't advertise there much, I've seen some pretty weird stuff over there & filed a complant- nothing was done about it. Same crap probably still there for all I know.

Hi gals.

Im not surprised at all.

The owner is nasty.

I had a run in with her two years ago when I posted there and she BANNED ME from the forum!

I have never been banned from any forum in all my years online ever.
LOL

I merely engaged "respectfully" in a debate.
Heck it wasnt even a debate!
It was merely a "comment" about how difficult it is to make any money at all in Avon.
They have good products and prices but only a very few make anything signifigant AND even those top leaders in Avon will tell you that!
One Avon leader outright admitted that the Avon plan does not pay much at all and that you got to work your butt off and run around like a chicken with your head cut off paying for all your magazines etc,,just to make anything.
She banned me for that! LOL
I have a strong personality and some strong convictions.
Apparently that is something that is not ALLOWED at that forum! :D
No independent thinkers or strong personalities! :D

She totally banned my ISP.

When I e-mailed her about it to express how UNFAIR and EXTREME it was that she banned me all I got back was more nastiness. :twisted:


I never went back.

Definately a LOT of issues over there. A lot of people come to me to ask me where they should advertise, who's vendor fair is a good one to participate in, what groups they should join online etc....and MMB is one I never recommend due to the problems.

I had something similar happen - I thought I was sharing news about my company in the Candles section of the board. I checked the other posts first, and mine was nearly identical to several other posts on there, so I figured it would be OK. I wasn't overtly recruiting, just giving basic info about our company - as I said, there are MANY other reps who come and do this.

I got a nasty note and all of my posts were removed. I wasn't quite banned, but I definitely felt unwanted and have barely posted messages there since then. I was really irritated by the tone of the message about the posts being removed, and even more annoyed when I saw that the other posts from people in other companies were still on there! I have seen other messages that were the same thing as mine, and they have been on there for weeks and weeks with no sign of being deleted. As a matter of fact, there is STILL a recruiting post on the messageboard from Sweet Cupcake, and they aren't even in existence any more! And she removes my posts? Doesn't make sense!

I am in a new, relatively unknown company, so there is pretty much no chance we could have irritated her in any way - at the time this happened we only had 10 or less consultants, most of them in one state!

I'm thinking someone must have complained, or she sells candles herself with a competitor, or is friends with someone in another candle company.

Fortunately, I heard about the problems with advertising over there and did not purchase any. I am happy to report that I have gotten advertising from HPPN, and they were awesome! I have even had to change some details a couple of times, and they were super friendly about it and changed everything for me pretty much right away.

Just had to add my 2 cents!
