In the age of digital marketing, every Realtor dreams of a lead generation program that delivers quality leads in ample quantity. I fell into that trap with a company called Prolific Media. They claimed they could turn me into a top producer(which I already am) in just 90 days with the following website prolificmedia.ca. Their advertising is enticing, promising 15-20 qualified real estate appointments every month. However, based on my personal experience and investment this is not a company you want to work with.
Unfulfilled Promises: Prolificmedia.ca claims that you’ll receive between 15-20 leads and at least one closed deal. If not, they assert they'll work for free until you secure that deal. However, not only did I receive significantly less than the promised leads, but the quality of the leads provided was questionable at best. Not one of these leads culminated in a closing.
Lack of Communication: One would assume that a company offering such grand promises would be eager to assist its clients, ensuring their satisfaction. Sadly, once the payment was made, the company became nearly unreachable. Questions, concerns, and requests for updates were met with silence or delays.
Guarantee Loopholes: Guarantees are meant to instill confidence, ensuring that you get the value for your money. However, when it came time to invoke the guarantee due to unmet promises, I was left without the results or the refund. It felt as if their guarantee was just a marketing ploy rather than a legitimate promise.
I was drawn in by the shining promises of prolificmedia.ca and invested a hefty $2,000, expecting a return in quality leads and increased business. What I got instead was a hard lesson in disappointment. Not only did the promised leads fall short, but the ones I received lacked quality and did not culminate in any substantial business deals.
From my personal experience with this company, I can honestly say it was not worth the investment. I truly regret not doing more due diligence beforehand. So, I implore my fellow Realtors: before parting with your hard-earned money, especially on such grand promises, do your research. Seek out honest reviews, ask colleagues for recommendations, and always trust your gut. When a deal appears too good to be true, it's often because it is.
Don't make the same mistake I did. Ensure your investment leads to genuine opportunities, not just empty promises.
