Advertlets Sucks!!!

The booming of Malaysian blogosphere had attracted yet another copycat middleman of tying up bloggers & advertisers. A company who called itself yet another "Asia's Better Blog Advertising Network" and a company with the motto of "advertisers + bloggers = money + happy"...

HAPPY???

A friend of mine had shared her piece of dissatisfaction in regard of this company. Check out the entire saga here. This is not the first time a blogger bad-mouthed about Advertlets. Being managed by a glamour yuppy attention seeker boss, I want to show the power of unity in Malaysian blogosphere, I had since cleansed my precious blog space from anything related with Advertlets.

The very first impression when I met up with this CEO as a potential advertiser, he kept putting his rival down, making negative statements about the other company, making crybaby claims, backstabbing his closest rival. It makes no wonder I do not see interesting banner of big MNC tying up with them. I do not face any of these with the other company.

This year alone, there were claims that this company ran away from bills for a gathering. Check out more here. I can smell a sinking Titanic story here, last I heard he sold some of his shares to another partner. My 2 cents, how can non-bloggers make bloggers happy leh without understanding us in the first place?

Those who had had bad experiences with either Advertlets or its CEO, Josh Lim, no worries mates, all I can say, "you are not alone"

TMD CCB...

Just in case and before I am slapped with a legal action for defamation, I shall rephrase my comment.

The company also promised to sponsor one (or was it two) of the Chinese bloggers' gathering and conference/competition, BUT, UNLESS my reliable source hasn't been informed of or updated, the company was RUMORED to yet to keep his/their promise.

Someone should start a blog or post and compile every freaking post in blogsphere about Advertlets and post it somewhere. Let the list grows itself.

A free wiki site would be ideal as everyone can edit themselves.

advertlets is scam said...

halo..im so pissed off with advertlets..damn.they never paid me since april 2008! the status said SENT,but i havent receive any.then i checked out couple of months later,still UNPAID.FYI now i have more than RM1000 in my account.but,ive just removed advertlets ads on my site after months of waiting (6 months).the real problem is they keep on beating around the bush.support system sucks too.no matter how much you contact them.lastly they just ignored you! damn.

i know,they gave lame excuse of click fraud.you know what? ive received thousand bucks from Google Adsense without having single problem related to click fraud.we all know Google has a very reputable plus advanced technologies to detect click fraud.

im willing to DESIGN graphics related to this matter,FREELY! email me at advertletscam@gmail.com for details.


let ALL MALAYSIAN BLOGGERS know advertlets is SUCK!! and lets show what we bloggers can do!!

adverlets suck!

I have to say i identify with you/(& whoever is claiming Advertlets is scam) totally because I also have such an experience with Advertlets.

After I did a paid write up for Advertlets and posted the article on my blog, I wasn't paid at all.

And I have written in to them so many times, but yet there was not a single news till now.

And did I mention that this issue happened 6 months ago?

Yup, till now, I have not heard from Advertlets, and I have since removed all the Advertlets ads on my blog!

Advertlets = SCAM!
