Anyone else tired of identical tiered SEO services?

    There's new ones constantly popping up and it just floods the marketplace unnecessarily. There are over 20 people providing the same thing for the same price and it just makes it harder to find BSTs of interest.

    Yep. There are so many resellers that it's hard to know who is offering the original service and who isn't. I haven't needed anyone yet although with the recent penguin crap going on, I might have to as my hands are full running a bricks and mortar business. There are a few who stand out though...

    The whole marketplace needs a revamp. Hopefully the staff and Damien are working on it.

    Currently upgrading the forum software for better flexibility. That should be done soon.

    I've heard that it's getting a revamp but not sure if that means the marketplace because I just saw a near tiered system that is offering the standard bullshit. I understand the argument of a free market but when you do a Google search for a local business, you can see a star rating in the local pack. With BHW, there isn't a rating system you can trust because competitor's can give the thread 1/5 stars without being customers.

    The sad truth is that any legitimate inbound marketing company is not going to list a service here for the simple reason that people would start screaming and shouting at how expensive it is. Its a continuous circle that is hard to stop; people @ bhw expect stupidly retarded outcomes from $500 and so offering a legit service form a real company that pays taxes, employees and so on is simply not possible.

    The mentality here is to buy the cheapest possible service and there are certain elements which are set in stone that bhw buyers would never accept.

    Am I being pessimistic? Not in my eyes, just realistic, and if not, try selling something for over $1.5k/month with a 6 month minimum contract. Even when you sell stupidly cheap stuff, people still are like "any discountings for the servicings for bhw members sar?".

    Anyways man, my suggestion is, as I always do, to buy elsewhere, arrange a face to face meeting with the company and play it that way; otherwise you will always be stuck around the same pond, with the same souls painted in different colors.
