To put this in context, I signed up to do a Social Media Marketing course. It was 4 modules long with module 1 being 8 lessons long. I gave up at module 1, lesson 8. They seem to prefer you to do 2 lessons a week (more money for less content?) but you can do 1 a day if you change your preferences every couple of days.
Course content, whilst fairly good in the first few lessons, gets progressively worse as the lessons progress. One lesson took the best part of 45 minutes showing the process of creating a small range of mainstream social media accounts, something the average 10 year old can do.
Apart from paying for a subscription for the lessons, you also have to pay for course notes/toolkits, module assignments and module certificates, all at £40 per item. This makes it VERY expensive for not a lot of worthwhile content.
They attempt to con you into thinking these are live lessons with other 'students' participating. They are not. They are simply pre-recorded online presentations.
They also use 'one click' purchase options which are deliberately all over every page to confuse you into purchasing these items by accident, with no way of cancelling, as it's 'one click'.
The last lesson of module 1 of the course I wanted to take was only 15 minutes long and dissolved into another 15 minutes of blatant advertising to make sure you paid rather than continue with the free trial. Every 'lesson' featured numerous occurrences of 'don't drop out', closely followed by 'achieve your goals', designed to convince you that unless you keep paying you must be some kind of failure.
They also attempt to phone you constantly and bombard you with emails. I had to block their phone numbers and flag their emails as junk.
They haven't got any money from me, but, I have a debit card I only use for online services/purchases that deliberately never has any funds on it. Therefore i obviously can't comment on the many other reviews that mention being charged despite cancelling.
If you don't buy, they offer discounted packages, 50% off for a full years subscription paid in advance for example. Sounds good, but, in my opinion, based on the quality of the 1 module/8 lessons that I took, still grossly overpriced for what they provide.
All things considered, this is a high pressured sales environment pretending to be some kind of educational institution. There are much better, cheaper, and significantly more reputable options available, if you do a bit of simple research online.
Avoid like the plague if you want value for money!
(It's interesting to see how many of the 5 star reviews are from people who have never reviewed anything else before or since. Draw your own conclusions!)
