Complaint: This report is divided into 3 parts: 1) deception/lies they used to get me to buy the three marketing contacts. 2) Google Analytics and Wordtraker third party proof that after 5 months the marketing was not working and probably would never work, 3) on 3/15/16 iePlexus tried to hack into my email account and Google blocked it. I hope this information will show you the dishonesty of their company and the fact that the marketing methods they use will leave the customer with little if any future sales. 1) I was out of a job in early 2014. Because of my age I knew I could not get another job so after studying the web for in home work I decided to try building a web site. I found a good product with a great profit on sales and I contracted the web site to be built and I also contracted someone to do marketing for me since I knew nothing about it. My web site started in early Sept 2014. Later in Sept a Jason Thurston from iePlexus called me and told me they had a very successful marketing firm. He said they were BBB rated A+ and he had references that could tell me what a good job they did. He told me the marketing company I was using was rated bad with a lot of complaints and their methods did not work. He said if I hurried and signed a maketing contract then in Sept I would get sales for Christmas. He used that lie to hook me to sign the contract for $4250. The reason I can say it was a lie is while working with one of their employees they were shocked when I mentioned sales by Christmas they said it takes at least a year to get sales which Jason had to know. Before I found out that the Christmas sales pitch was a lie, Jason called me and said he was so impressed with the products I was trying to sell that I should have a second web site to sell a more varity. I said I had no money and could not afford to start a second web site. He convinced me that I could use the money from the sales I would start getting at Christmas from the first web site to help pay for the second site. They were supposed to have the second site done in Oct but it was not done until Jan 2015. It was also not up to Goggle specs because it would not fit on cell phones or mobile computers. It didn’t matter anyway because I got no Chistmas sales. You will see why in item #2. The two contracts for this second site cost me $7900. They also charged me $600/mo to write 12, two sentence blogs that anyone could write in a couple minutes. Since I was receiving no sales and based on the information in #2 I wrote iePlexus a note that I had to stop their marketing because the $600/mo with no sales was bankrupting me. 2) When I had not received any Christmas sales( Jason will deny he ever used Christmqas sales to get me to sign the contracts) I used data that Google Analyts recorded for Jan 2015 for my web site to detemine how good their marketing was doing. Google Analytics will give you the data from all over the USA who visited your web site and for how long they stayed on yor site. It shows a total of 210 hits on my web site in Jan. Hits from Ohio, Washington and Utah were just me and the two marketing companies working on my site. That leaves only 42 hits from the public. Google shows the times on these hits were so short that they were by accident. The times were not long enough for anyone to be using my web site to be looking at the products. I have the printout of this information as proof that iePlexus marketing was getting me NO customers after 5 months thus voiding the contract. I also used a third party called Wordtraker that monitors how many hits my 29 keywords got in Jan 2015. It showed about 1/3 of the keywords did not exist, about 7 more of the keywords got zero hits. So of the four remaining keywords that got any hits only 3 would ever amount to enough hits to get me any sales. With 3 of the 29 keywords they were using worth anything my web site would have gotten very, very few sales if any. If have the prinout of this as proof also. So based on this item iePlexus also failed to meet teir marketing contract. 3) On March 15.2016 iePlexus attempted a cyber crime on my computer. When they were working on my second web site they said they needed my email password. Of course they have not had a need for that for a year and a half now. On March 15 Google blocked someone suspicious using my password trying to enter my email. We traced the I.P. and it is iePlexus’s address. They were the only ones to have my password. It’s a good thing Goggle blocked them. Who knows what they were trying to get into my computer for. They could have done a lot of damage. Erasing my files where I had done business with them, putting out emails under my name causing major problems for me etc. This was shocking and I think it should be considered a crime. I have the documentation that Google sent saved. I paid iePlexus $10482 and based on their original deception I got no sales at Christmas, even into Feb 2015. I showed that after five months their marketing was getting me nothing. Worst of all I showed that they would stoop so low as to commit a cyber crime trying to hack my computer. Based on all these facts they should have the responsibily of returning all the funds with an appoly for their actions.
