    Question Confused, Need Help As Soon As Possible

    I am currently trying to start my home based business, all my websites are up and running, and recently I was approached by a company by the name of "Future Vision Technologies, LLC out of Portland Oregon" Jason Fresh is the Marketing Manager that is assigned to me.

    I did a search on the company and the BBB from Portland Oregon has a complaint against this company and marketing manager, and I did a search on The Scam Report, and found 3 compalints against this company.

    Obvious resons indicate that I should not trust this person, but when I questioned him about this he swore tome that they were all clients in default, and wanting something for nothing. I agree there are those few out there that want to get all they can get for free.

    What I am looking for is any one who has a any success with this company/marketing manager? Point me to aplace where I can look.

    Bad signs, his website is down for 3 days now, he told me they were working on it, since they are there own ISP Provider, And all of the bad reports? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I wouldn't trust them for a second.

    BTW, where have I seen your nickname before?

    Generally if a customer reports a business to the BBB or The scam report they have been scammed or where vaery mad. Obvoiusly this guy made them mad enough to go through the trouble of reporting to these places which would sound warning bells in my mind.

    Too many bad signs and indications, why risk it? There are plenty of viable alternatives out there. Use one you trust and don't look back!

    Cool Thank you all for confirming my suspesions (spelling)

    Thank you all for taking the time to reply to me. Needed an outside opinion on this one, to keep my sanity.

    What I am looking for is someone who can help me market my home based business. Or at least tell me how to go about doing it.

    I am am Stay at home mom, and our income has been litterly cut in half with my lay off a year ago. And my decision to stay at home with my boys is financially straining on us, and I need (HAVE) to get some money comming in, without putting so much of it out and getting nothing in return, does that make sense to any one.

    Thanks again, and any help is greatly appreciated.

    Talking

    Depends on what you're marketing, frankly. There's lots of free options, and some that don't even involve the Web, again depending upon what yer sellin'.

    Hey tjkontra, what kind of business are you doing? Try some basics, like putting your business in your sig file, putting your url in your profile. You might find it easier to market if you actually tell people what your business IS! lol

    Also, a few weeks ago I found an awesome website that has a lot of resources for people in your situation.
