Wrong (Digital Media) Services

September 11, 2012

Would you pay a doctor to give you a workshop in sport car hydrodynamics?

Have you ever heard of a company called Right Service?

Warning the below graphic may cause nausea, irritation and in rare cases nostalgia to web 1.0, ok, you have been warned! 

So this “agency” is having a social media workshop on best practices for Businesses on Twitter in March and charging $325 for attendance, excluding VAT, which in total = $357.5!! Yes Ladies and Gentleman. Now for the breakdown:

Social Media presence of the “agency”:
Facebook: Yes, your Facebook Ads got you some fans (1,250 fans) … but they didn’t like you (30 talking about this)

Right Service Facebook Page

Twitter: “Benefit from our 15 Years of Experience in Digital Marketing . Creation of Email , SMS & Social Media Marketing Campaigns.15 Years of Experience in “Digital Marketing”, “Creation of Email” (google ain’t got anything on you!) “SMS” & “Social Media Campaigns” (neither does Zuckerburg!)

Right Service Twitter Profile

to be fair, Klout has picked up “some interaction”

RightService - Marketing Experts 961 - Majida AlRoumi Hashtag

They seem to be buddies with those Marketing Experts 961 – Please note the Majida AlRoumi Hashtag fail!

Youtube: To be fair, youtube is very challenging medium that very very few have cracked

Rights Service on Youtube

Rights Service on Youtube – 12 videos total – Regular (monthly) uploads – not bad

Now for the Epic Highlight! *drum roll*

According to the Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/199046990183302/

“TRAINER:
Joe Ghantous (CEO Right Service for digital marketing)
http://lb.linkedin.com/in/joeghantous

another simple Google search (bless you):

Joe Ghantous Social Media

Joe Ghantous Social Media

Slideshare, Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter

So on LinkedIn is doing pretty well i must say, but please remember that your paying $357.7 for TWITTER workshop! Why would i pay YOU? someone who last tweeted on 4 Jan! Who proclaimed you the expert?

I ranted earlier today about how i’m sick and tired of the bullshit that’s floating in the media and digital space. Well Right Services … you are SO WRONG! and if you have registered for the event, i advise you to do better research before blowing away your money next time! Whatever basics these people preach can probably be found online, or with the help of a friend, all for free!

“TWITTER FOR BUSINESS” WORKSHOP – November 20 – 21, price $357.5 (VAT included) – presented by the Pediatrician next door!

      Hello Joe,

      Thank you for taking the time to reply to the post, however, your reply doesn’t answer anything, i have checked and research your online presence and testimonials, which you have referred to above and the primitive display of the testimonials & feedback, and they ARE the reason i wrote this post!
      As a digital agency, you are wasting my time, going from one testimonial to the other, you might as well put this information is a single infographic! Also, the digital presence of the clients you are referring to is pretty average, not so special, not at all.

      If you plan on giving average information in a session and charge people a premium rate let me give these people a better option:
      * SHAREBeirut (FREE) http://www.sharebeirut.net/en/program
      SHARE is a weekend-long public, free and non-commercial hybrid event blending an Internet culture and technology related daytime conference with dynamic cutting-edge music festival by night. It will bring together hundreds of passionate people, forward-thinkers, cultural creatives, activists and artists from Lebanon as all around the world for talks and parties in 72 hours of powerful gathering to share ideas, knowledge and creativity.
      * DGTL#U – ($330) http://www.iktissadevents.com/events/DGTLU/1/speakers
      http://www.iktissadevents.com/events/DGTLU/1/agenda << the speakers and agenda speak for themselves

      To name a very few of the ongoing events in Lebanon that are Paid! Free workshops, or at least affordable ones are happening all the time.

      Thank you for the invite, but i don't believe it will change my mind.

    As one of Right Service’s attendees I am pleased to report about my EXCELLENT personal experience in the workshops. To set the record straight learning from Joe was a delight for he has his own way of elaboration and FYI the customer care in all the services provided is spectacular; this is not a solely profitable firm. Lets not generalize, starting with the title of this blog.

      Dear Ms. Shayya, thank you for your testimony, could you please demonstrate how did you benefit from the workshop with Mr. Joe? I believe the workshop was on Facebook for Business, in June, and the Page for “Chloris for divine arrangements” has 1 fan and was created 10 days ago! wouldn’t that be bad timing to miss the wedding season?

      • September 14, 2012 9:57 am

        I apologize the workshop was in July, still long enough.

    Hi Racha, As the proverb says : “To know the road ahead, ask those coming back.”
    for your information we made the e-marketing campaign for DGTL#U and we will be there as guests, and we will be lecturing in the next DGTL#U event.
    If you have further questions you can shift this debate off line via phone call: +961 5 922353.
    Thank you.
