does anybody have any experience using WL marketing for local business citation submissions?
It's not often that I'd recommend a company for local SEO work, but I've used WL Marketing in the past, and they did some good work.
I'd suggest contacting them to check that they can do local citations for the business's location.
I used wl marketing a few times for my website. I wasn't impressed with the 100 Press Release Submissions service they offered. They sent me details of the 100 websites that they submitted my press release to. I logged onto each website and a lot of the accounts hadn't been activated. I ended up changing the email address, activating the account myself and submitting the press release. Made me wonder what I was paying them for. Other accounts hadn't been created. The other bad point is that they only ever submitted the press release to the free services which meant the press release never got published quickly, got rejected or had any of the html links to my website removed. (it makes the submission worthless). Overall I got my press release published 10 times of the 100 promised. I also ended up paying some the press release companies a fee to publish the press release with links. One of them was only $5 as well which considering they are an SEO company, I thought wl marketing would see this opportunity and add this service into their fee they charge me. They are cheap for a reason. Seriously don't expect a good response from their campaigns. I have complained about their service and this was their WLMARKETING's response...
RESPONSE FROM WL MARKETING
Thanks for your note! We always appreciate feedback! Regarding this order, we do need to state that it is impossible for us to guarantee submissions for this type of service. The most common problem you are finding is the inability to login. This is likely because these websites do not keep accounts for longer than a year. Many websites will go through and delete inactive accounts. Some websites will delete inactive accounts after only a few months. So although we created an account when the order was placed, it no longer exists. We do our best to submit to free sites only, this avoids a hefty payment on your end, and also keeps the cost lower for our customers. This sometimes has limitations, such as no links present. We do our best to submit to those sites that only allow links, however, we still do post to websites that do not post live backlinks. This still gives clients promotional value. Also, we state that we generally see an acceptance rate of 30-40% of the press releases we submit. This means that not every site we submit to will post your Press Release. So we apologize if you cannot find your press release on certain sites you visit.
