How many scams do you think you dodge a day? Wake up, scam call. Open your email, junk mail. Turn the tv on, fake news. Where does it end? Well we’ll be the first to say it doesn’t get any easier in the business world. Luckily, we’ve been in the game long enough to spot a scam from a mile away. We’re here to protect our partners from marketing scams. Are you just now thinking, “wait, there are marketing scams?” If so, that’s okay! You’re exactly the place you need to be.
Domains are crucial in the modern marketing world. A well-chosen domain name enhances brand recognition, credibility, and online visibility. It not only represents a company's identity but also influences its online presence, search engine rankings, and overall brand perception. Now imagine you receive a letter in the mail telling you need to make a payment on your domain. In fear of losing the money and work you’ve put into using your domain you might just pay it without thinking twice. At SEM, this is a common scam we see. We even receive these “bills” ourselves. When you partner with us, we’ll use our decades of experience to steer you away from fraudulent mail.
Scrolling through your email and finding out you’ve won a million dollars or finding out a Nigerian prince needs to borrow $500 while promising millions has become a daily eyeroll. These types of phishing emails are easy to spot and delete. Now, what if you get an email from someone you partner with claiming that you need to update payments or personal information. It can be hard to spot these cloned emails, especially when they appear to be from someone you know. That’s why we’re here. We’ll look into suspicious emails and let you know what’s real and what’s not.
Maybe these types of scams are easy for you to avoid, now what about real people over charging you? Or not completing a promised service? This can leave you feeling frustrated and sometimes broke. We’ve met many partners that have explained how easily money has been taken from them from other agencies without anything to show for it. We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again. Your success is our success. We’ll make sure you're putting your resources in the right places. We’re familiar enough with the marketing world that we’ll connect you with the right people and services. This ensures you’ll never flush time, money, and/or energy down the toilet again.
