We've had fantastic service from the Platinum team. I hope things start looking up for you! I wouldn't be surprised if they find a way to make up for the mistakes - they always have for us, by throwing in extra services or extra-special attention when things have gone awry. :)
When we first qualified for Platinum service, OV was great at helping us out and our rep did a good job.
Now, I'm lucky if I can get ahold of him, and it's easier for me to just manage the account without OV involved. The only time I bother to talk to them these days is if I want to pause a campaign for a period of time.
It almost seems like OV kept getting new Platinum Advertisers, but didn't bother to hire more people to cover the new advertisers, thus leaving the old reps swamped.
We go through a sales rep who has generally been really good. They've offered the Ambassador program but things seem to be A-OK without that. Are we missing anything by not using that program?
The ambassador program.
Is that just a dedicated hand holding tpye person, or agency terms and commissions? Benefits of being an "amassador"?
We've sent 3 e-mails to the one on the site and not heard back zip, so maybe someone in WebmasterWorld could let me know if I send a 4th one, or make a call, or just settle not to bother?
if you want a contact, sticky me, i can get you in touch with a rep
I'm platinum and have a great rep and great response. What's the Ambassador Program? Something to do with bringing in new accounts to Overture?
I know there is a diamond level (120K spend/yr=personal rep). That may be what webdiversity is referring to. Unless there is something above this. I have heard rumored that you may also get a discount on you CPC after a certain spend.
Second paragraph down mentions an ambassador program if you are "a web design/SEO/SEM" and have aggregated spend of $10k a month.
Talk of free custom sales proposals etc..
Thanks Hannamyluv, Webdiversity...
I'm getting these services now and I do spend over $10K per month, but nobody ever mentioned 'Ambassador' or told me I was at a higher/diamond level. I thought all platinum accounts got this. :)
