Product Name: Web Vision Works
Product Owner: Lennie H, ‘Kay’ and Millie H
What is it?
It appears to be a company specializing in website design and SEO.
All-in-all Web Vision Works is kind of an odd site and seems to have its sales pitch only half in place. The site is promoting internet marketing and SEO services, but is very unclear on specifically what the services are and how much they cost. Furthermore, the site has received a lot of complaints and doesn’t seem to up to its promises at all.
Before You Buy
Be careful about providing your phone number to this company at any time. It has been linked to other companies with a habit of cold calling customers and trying to convince them to make purchases. Sometimes you may not know how they found your phone number!
Common ways of obtaining your number are ‘scraping' the internet using software to automatically grab any number they can get, or obtaining them from typical methods that soliciters and call centers use.
I have not listed a price above, because the price they charge varies on who they are speaking to. Prices can range from 100's to 10,000's of dollars, depending on what you purchase from them.
What Are They Actually Selling?
With Web Vision Works it is actually a bit challenging to work out what it is the company sells. Web Vision Works has a page for the services it sells, but that information that this page offers isn’t really all that helpful. For example, the site claims that it can generate traffic for a website.
Traffic is important for getting a website ranked and successful, but both the quality and the quantity of traffic is relevant for this. Web Vision Works doesn’t give any indication of the type of traffic they are actually selling, so there is no indication of whether it is targeted traffic. Any site that tells you they're getting traffic to your site without telling you HOW or WHERE they get it from should not be trusted.
The type of traffic you get is very important! Nobody wants fake clicks that don't result in sales.
Likewise, the site claims to offer SEO services, but offers little information about what they actually do. This is concerning, because some SEO approaches are effective while others aren’t, and some can get your site in trouble. Many SEO services simply send out link spam, or hire people from developing countries to spam your link on social media.
Perhaps the most useful description of its services that the site offers is the following one:
However, this description is still very limited and it doesn’t tell you how the site is going to do any of what it claims.
Most importantly, there is no indication of price anywhere on the site and nothing that indicates the specifics of what the company offers. It seems like a half-finished approach for selling a product, because the company certainly isn’t being effective at convincing people to buy anything.
If you are going to trust any company to make a business for you, you want to make sure that they are very good at what they do. That’s not the case with Web Vision Works and there are a lot of indications on the site that the company is nothing more than amateurs.
For example, despite promoting themselves as a company that is selling a range of services, the site offers no pricing information and no way to actually purchase anything. The implication seems to be that you email the company and go from there. For a site that offers to help you market yourself and your products, they sure do a poor job of it for their own company.
Another indication of this is the company’s blog. Blogs are an important way for sites to rank in search engines and engage their visitors, yet the blog for Web Vision Works just has a single entry and that entry was from last year.
It’s also a very short blog post (less than 300 words) and doesn’t really say anything useful. This is terrible for SEO. Looks like they don't know as much about ranking as they want you to think.
The side bar to the blog also offers some insight, because it is a typically WordPress sidebar, meaning that the company has done little work beyond the basics in developing their site. These are standard “widgets” that come with a site right out of the box. They didn't even bother to remove the Meta widget which is of no use to them or you.
This is a really bad indication from a site that is claiming to be experts in the marketing field. In reality, the site doesn’t seem to know much about internet marketing at all.
One concerning thing is that Web Vision Works has been linked to other scams online and has a pretty bad reputation. A reader on my site commented that they were contacted by someone from Web Vision Works who claimed that the company would be able to send traffic to the person’s website. As you may imagine, Web Vision Works never followed through on this promise.
Web Vision Works also has a habit of not responding to complaints from customers. Most of the complaints about the company seem to be that it charges users the initial fee then keeps trying to get more money out of them, without ever delivering the promised traffic.
Looking at the website for Web Vision Works, these issues honestly don’t surprise me. Web Vision Works is far too vague about what it offers to be legitimate.
Web Vision Works has a three day refund policy, which is beyond ridiculous. Three days isn’t enough time to figure out whether a product works as it is supposed to, especially when you are looking at a service as complex as Web Vision Works.
In particular, one of the key things that Web Vision Works promises is ranking in Google. Ranking is a process that takes time, and you certainly wouldn’t be able to see whether the company lived up to its claims in a three day window.
Furthermore, companies often refuse to honor such policies when it comes to traffic because they claim that what they promised ‘has already been delivered’. This means that people who spend money with the company may not get any of it back. Even if you rank #1 tomorrow, what happens if their spammy SEO policies get your site de-ranked? They will throw their hands up and say, “sorry”, and your business will be damaged with no one to take the blame.
The complaints against Web Vision Works are a strong indication of the sketchy nature of the company, as is the company’s website as a whole. These factors suggest that the company really doesn’t know much about internet marketing and is trying to sell sham services.
Some of the complaints about the company talked about paying $500 or even $1,000 for services. That’s a lot of money for internet marketing services when the company isn’t well-known and you have little indication of what you are actually going to get. For another great example of what this company is selling, see a more detailed review of my experience with Web Knowledge LLC.
Not only is Web Vision Works a waste of time but you are risking a considerable amount of money in the process.
The whole concept of Web Vision Works is all about shortcuts and that is a really bad way to be starting a business. Realistically if you want to be successful with your own business online then you have to learn it and work at it. If you take any other approach then you won’t know what you need to in order to grow the business and make it successful long-term.
This is why I promote the idea of learning to be successful online and that’s the only way to be successful in the long-term.
Training sites are a fantastic place to learn what you need to without paying through the nose. The site that I always recommend is Wealthy Affiliate and that is the site that taught me how to make a successful online business. I work for myself full time from home, and help people build their own websites, promoting the products they love (getting real traffic from Google instead of buying “traffic packages”).
