In the article “Entrepreneurs, make your life easier to grow your business“, we explain why choosing the right partners is important. Indeed, a collaboration can more or less challenge your reputation.
With Welink agencies ex Katchr, we decided to trust a company who promises to give us qualified leads and customers as soon as we sign up… But without success. Although their platform tool is interesting overall, their customer service doesn’t exist.
What Welink agencies sells : “Our motto “We match, you grow” is also our focus on connecting people effectively to support businesses in their efforts to reach their potential.” – Welink agencies
Welink agencies or Fraud agencies ?
The reality after one year of the contract, some calls, but only from KODD Group partners via our Google My Business page which they had connected to their platform (which we have since deactivated…). And only one message via their platform from a client who wanted a euros 400 website worth about euros 5.000… And that’s not all ! An automatic renewal subscription for the following year without cancellation and of course without any prior call, message or contact from the customer service.
As a result, we are once again working with a company that costs us more than their “We match, you grow” promise, despite our desire to break the contract. Of course, in the meantime, we have asked for the automatic renewal to be cancelled and miraculously, we received the first message from customer service. And we are waiting until the end of the contract to find out what they have planned for us.
Observe, Requirement, Be vigilant
The lesson to be learned from this experience lies in 3 words :
– Observe : know and think ahead before signing an annual contract with a company (check customer reviews, contact other customers of the company wishing to partner with you and go further, call the same company with another number to check their honesty).
– Requirement : choose the best and most relevant partners according to your business needs. Be aware that even the most famous and popular companies are not necessarily the best. You must be very careful with all the information you receive from your partners.
– Vigilance : being vigilant will allow you to work with companies who are on the same level as you. Indeed, since the Covid-19 pandemic, digitisation has become a service that many companies offer. Not all services are what you need to grow your business.
Mistakes in business are made, this article is written to share with you one of our experiences which many other entrepreneurs and businesses are experiencing with Welink agencies. We have written this open letter to warn other professionals. We have chosen not to participate in the collective complaint we received by email because it’s not worth it.
We are a media company, our goal is to share our experiences, opinions and discoveries. And this experience with Welink agencies could help you decide and make the right choice if you wish to collaborate with them.
By choosing Welink agencies, it is possible to benefit from visibility on search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo…etc. Expecting to get clients ? Not likely ! Why not ? We have been waiting for a year for the euros 50.000 turnover hoped for within the KODD Group…
Remember : resilience will help you to succeed in your business !
