Hi,

First of all, it's been a while since I visited the forum and it's looking nice and shiny new! :cool:

My question: Has anyone here heard of More Digital? They contact website owners offering a flat fee for text ads to be placed in their website content. It looks like an interesting advertising model but could be a scam. Has anyone had any experience of them?

Thanks,

Dorothy

Never came across the name before.

Can't get the website to load at the moment, so not a great first impression. (Site appears to have a very poor WOT rating for trustworthiness, not that that's a factor I'd place much weight on... but again, further bad first impression)

Not impressed by their "Our clients" page, which just gives 3 anonymous "case studies", with the same pull quote repeated beside each. And their whole site is a bit waffly about what they actually do.

More Digital Scam

I got an email from these the other day. I was intrigued, so I interacted with them a bit to see what would happen. Nothing did unsurprisingly.

I did a bit of research on them and the company is definitely not kosher.

You can see my conclusions here if you wish, More Digital Marketing Scam, but for the short answer, it is a scam.

I was reviewing a company we do some pro-bono digital strategy stuff and I saw them allocating huge effort into Web advertising (apart from PPC/SEO and Social). Weird.

Are they buying links as well ?

Yes, they do seem to be offering to buy links. I don't know yet if they're actually paying for them though.

Oddly enough, since that last post they have come back to say they want to buy a link on a different site I manage. I've stuck the link up there, because the client website in question is quite high profile and kosher, so I'm pretty sure it's not going to turn into a porn link. Whether I'll get paid or not is a different story. I'll let you know what happens.

I've altered the above post to reflect this new information. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for now, but it will be interesting to see if payment arrives.

I put up the links and they paid me within 24 hours. Maybe they know I'm blogging about this (it's pretty obvious from my website as it comes up pretty high when you type in 'More Digital Marketing Scam'), but I doubt it to be honest. You're not going to make your fortune out of it, but you'd be a long time waiting for Google Adsense to clock up the same amount in revenue so I'd consider it a 'minor success'. Perhaps it is possible to make something (as opposed to nothing) out of a blog that speaks its mind.

There are scams out there but MoreDigital approached me and they DID pay up, even though a lot of peeps online told me they wouldn't...
