Wrong (Digital Media) Services
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)
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!)
607 followers – yes followers are not a criteria however here’s a little slice of cake:
to be fair, Klout has picked up “some interaction”
Youtube: To be fair, youtube is very challenging medium that very very few have cracked
Now for the Epic Highlight! *drum roll*

another simple Google search (bless you):
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!
