      Prodvigate is a scam? Reviews and description

      Published: 11 August 2021 Updated: 27 November 2022


      Prodvigate - it's promotion service on YouTube, which belongs to the company "Video Boom". It is positioned as a service of quality promotion of video channels using Google Ads tools, at a price from $49 per week. It has been in operation since 2011. According to their own data, the company "promoted" 14 thousand YouTube channels and attracted a total of 7 million viewers to the promoted channels. However, is Prodvigate really that good or is it some form of a scam?

       

      Why Prodvigate?

      Prodvigate has a number of advantages:

      • the status of an official Google partner;
      • effective channel optimization;
      • simple interface of the service;
      • attracting only the target audience;
      • cutting off low-quality views;
      • small starting cost of maintenance;
      • client budget optimization;
      • prediction of the result of the advertising campaign;
      • referral program;
      • consultations of specialists;
      • responsive customer service.

       

      Promotion tools

      The main method of promotion is to place videos on the search and view pages in the "Recommended" list. The video is supplemented with a preview and a short text description. The CA user should notice the new video, get interested and watch it, subscribe to the channel, or at least like the video. For the client, the actions in the online account are simplified, he sets the most basic parameters, pays for the company's services and monitors the statistics on the growth of the number of readers and likes, if there are any, of course.

      Training

      Training section on the website Advancegate no. But there are a lot of educational and training materials in the "Blog" section. You can and should read the articles in this section before investing in promoting your channel.

      The blog covers basic issues: the principles of YouTube algorithms, the reasons for blocking YouTube authors, the characteristics of the target audience, how to get the first 1000 subscribers, how to write a script for the video, how to choose a video to promote, and others.

      Even more useful for understanding how to promote on YouTube can be the "Question and Answer" section, since customers are interested in specific problems, for example, whether there can be a situation when the money for a week of promotion will be spent faster; whether it is possible to change information in the channel description after the promotion starts; whether promotion with Prodvigate tools is possible in the English-speaking sector.

      FAQ is a section where you can find answers to typical questions about promotion tools, payment and promotion results. The section is recommended to see before you start promotion. The information can be distributed by topic, by popularity, or searched through the search bar. You can ask your own question or several, there is a button for that, and then leave only the answers you need on the page.

      But most of the educational and training material is posted on the YouTube channel prodvigate.comYou can access it from any page of the site by using the button in the center of the top navigation bar. The channel deals with both basic and highly specialized issues of creating and developing your channel:

      • How to get subscribers "from scratch";
      • which services with free music you can use for video;
      • video editors for beginners;
      • Identification of keywords in the title, description and tags;
      • mistakes and forbidden words and actions in YouTube;
      • Shooting and editing videos.

      At least for novice users, the channel provides comprehensive information.

       

      Rates

      The basic rate of Prodvigate can be considered $49, which is the amount the company offers to start the promotion. In the cabinet, the user cannot specify a budget smaller than this amount. For this money, Prodvigate promises to provide 2,111 views, but this is an approximate value. Subscribers, likes and comments on videos are offered free of charge. Prodvigate offers a kind of minimum program, the promotion of the video for a week for $49. In this case, you need to contact the support service and clarify what the client will receive for this amount.

      In the "Promotion" section of the client's cabinet, on the right side you can see which rate the client has chosen. To change the rate, click on the amount designation and go to the "Change weekly channel promotion budget" page. By moving the "Weekly budget" slider, the user can select an amount starting from $49 per week for channel promotion. The price per view may change if the client changes the settings of the advertising campaign. The final price can be seen on the Promotion page.

       

      The main ways of earning

      Prodvigate is not a money-making platform. However, it actively offers to connect to its referral program, which allows you to earn on invited clients. Within the limits of the program the client places the partner link in the publications, specifies in comments, sends to friends, acquaintances. For this he gets remuneration in the amount of 10% of the promotion budget of the clients invited by him. If a lot of referrals, the percentage increases. And the return of fees to referrals will reduce referral payments.

      In the "Prodvigate referral program" section you can use the calculator to calculate the income from referrals, depending on their number and the amount of the client's budget per month. The cabinet explains the rules for publishing promotional links: you can place links in your accounts in social networks, on videohosting, in teaser networks. But you can't spam links, use your referral link to promote your new account, or use the Prodvigate brand in your contextual advertising.

       

      How to get started at prodvigate.com

      First, you need to create an account on the Prodvigate website: by clicking the button in the upper right corner, the client goes to the registration form. You can create a working account through Google and Apple accounts, or sign up for an email address.

      You can start working in the service immediately after confirming your email and password. At first, the advertising campaign is set up: the client adds a promoted YouTube channel to the service and specifies the targeting parameters: the promotion region, the characteristics of the target audience and the available budget. Then the client pays for the advertising campaign. The balance of the client's account should be constantly replenished, so that promotion is also continuous.

      The company in turn analyzes the client channel, selects video content for promotion, checks the clips in Google, removes unclickable video content and adjusts the parameters of the target group for the advertising campaign. The progress is displayed in the client's online account.

      The main method of promotion is to place videos on the search and view pages in the "Recommended" list. The video is supplemented with a preview and a short text description. The CA user should notice the new video, get interested and watch it, subscribe to the channel, or at least like the video. For the client, the actions in the online account are simplified, he sets the most basic parameters, pays for the company's services and monitors the statistics on the growth of the number of readers and likes, if there are any.

      Personal Cabinet

      Because from the customer in the service Prodvigate does not require active participation, the interface of the online account is simple. It has a channel search bar, through which the client's channel is loaded, or you can use the "Add Channel" button. In the upper right corner there is an icon that activates the chat with the support team and the "Profile" button.

      From the "Profile" drop-down menu, you can go to the "Your referrals" page, where you can get a referral link. This page also has statistics on earnings from referrals. From the menu of the section "Profile" you can go to the section "Profile settings", which contains the e-mail address of the client, you can add a Google account, change the password and the order of notifications or disable the account. At the bottom of the site there are informational sections and a referral program section. In the lower left corner of the site there is a link to the company's social networks.

      In the online cabinet, enter the YouTube channel link in the search bar and click "Search for a channel" or add a channel via the "YouTube" button on the right.

      Through the search, the channel appears in the personal area of the Prodvigate service, in the "Choose your channel" subsection. Accordingly, you need to click on your channel, click on "Promote" and go to the page with the choice of promotion tariff plan.

      After selecting a price, the client clicks the "Next" button to go to the video selection page. On the next page, they select the audience and specify other settings. The company's recommended target audience selection method is automatic, but it can also be manual. If the client prefers to define the audience parameters himself, he enters the data on the "Audience and interests" page.

      Important: In the office of the user, the service reports that for known reasons Google does not show ads to users from Russia, so when you fill in the data to promote the need to specify "additional countries" or set the automatic targeting.

      The client manually specifies the country of promotion, gender and age of the target audience, up to three topics of his channel, and keywords. The parameters can be changed already during the promotion, these changes will take effect immediately after clicking on the "Save" button.

      Once the target audience has been identified, the client goes to the promotion payment page. If the client works via the YouTube button, he first goes to the Google account to which the channel is registered. This will need to give the Prodvigate service permission to view personal data, after which the user goes to the "Subscribers and views" page to select a rate. The subsequent algorithm is the same as in the variant of working with the channel through the search in the online account.

      Before the channel starts to be promoted, it is checked by Google. Moderation can last from a few hours to a few days. If moderation fails, the company will return the money to the client. The client can refuse to promote the channel before it starts.

       

      Deposit and withdrawal

      Choosing the method of payment by credit card, through the option "Start promotion" client activates the payment service, enters the details and pay for the promotion.

The "Other" option allows you to select the following payment systems UnionPay, SberPay, QiwiAlfa-Click, the Tinkoff app, or pay in cash at an ATM.

      You can activate auto-payments in the service's online cabinet, and 10% of the payment amount is returned to the client's account. Information on the client's funds movement is placed in the "Finances" section. This page saves the payment methods selected by the user, replenishes the balance if autopayments are disabled, and all data on payments is recorded in the "Replenishment history".

      Complaints about Advancegate

      The reviews about Prodvigate are contradictory. On the site itself, of course, only positive, but on the Internet there are many negative ones. The positive reviews are rather monotonous: the client invested a certain amount of money and received an increase in audience and likes.

      Negative reviews are more specific. For example, it is noted that Prodvigate does not pay attention to the viewing time of the video, although this is a very important parameter for channel development. Indeed, a viewer may pay attention to an ad, click and watch a video for a few seconds. This does not lead to qualitative growth of the channel, although money for promotion was paid regardless of viewing time.

      There are also complaints about the working methods Prodvigate. In fact, the service only takes money for setting up Google Ads, and not always effectively. Setting up Ads itself is not very complicated, so a number of reviews describe Prodvigate as a service for lazy people or for people who are casual about YouTube. A lot of negative feedback about the inconsistency of the company's claims with the actual results:

      • New viewers either don't come, or they come, but not many;
      • The Prodvigate cabinet shows inflated figures, which are not confirmed by the channel data;
        a significant discrepancy between the money spent on promotion and the results of the advertising campaign;
      • As long as the advertising campaign is active, the channel's indicators grow, as soon as the promotion ends, new viewers and likes disappear, and so on.

      If there are any complaints about Prodvigate, we'll be sure to post the information on social media. Sign up so you don't miss anything!

      Supervisory authorities

      The service is owned by Video Boom LLC, which is registered in Moscow. The company's activity is controlled and regulated by the Federal Tax Service Inspectorate No. 3 in Moscow and Roskomnadzor.

      User Agreement and Privacy Policy

      The section "Terms and agreements" is not a list of rights and obligations of the client and the company, but an offer. From Prodvigate's point of view, promotion services are "Advertising services" and the client is an "Advertiser" (a natural person or a legal entity). The document was last updated on April 1, 2021. According to the terms of the Offer, preparation, creation, modification, publication of video content and setting up an advertising campaign is performed by the advertiser.

      The company Prodvigate runs only the advertising campaign. Although, we should remind that in the service description it is stated that if the client cannot set up the advertising campaign, Prodvigate will do it for him.

      The company can terminate the contract with the advertiser without notifying him and can block the account without explanation. But, however, with a refund for unplaced content for 10 days after the account is blocked.

       

      Among the client's obligations is the prohibition to make changes to the content one day before or during the advertising promotion. Under the terms of the agreement, the company may require documentation of the content of the video within two days.

      The offer includes a list of actions that are considered unlawful for the advertiser, but the essence of which is better to clarify at the conclusion of the contract. These actions are included in paragraph 6 and are the least clear of all the terms of the document.

      For example, under the terms of clause 6 of the document, a user may not view content "from other systems," which include, for example, "computer, phone, smartphone. Automatic systems for collecting information on the company's actions may not be used without the company's written permission. What exactly these provisions mean should be clarified with support, as they are not entirely clear, although a user's account may be blocked for violating them.

      In the list of Prodvigate's duties is only to provide the conditions of promotion services to the advertiser and, in fact, the promotion itself. The effect of promotion is not stipulated and not guaranteed in any way.
      If difficult situations arise, authorized representatives of the parties are first involved in the settlement. If they are unable to settle the matter, the dispute is resolved in a claim procedure. And in an extreme case, the proceedings go to the Moscow Arbitration Court.

      The service's "Privacy Policy" is placed in a separate section. It should be noted that the service itself does not check the validity of user data, in this context, the responsibility falls on the client. As, however, and almost all other cases.

      Customer Service

      Chat support is activated by an icon on the top right side of the site and on the bottom left side. Next to the chat is a phone number, which can be dialed or activated by opening the site in the browser on your smartphone. Next to the chat icon is the e-mail address of the company and you can also send requests to it.

      On the left bottom of the site, there are buttons to go to Prodvigate's social networks: the channel "Prodvigate. All about promotion on YouTube," the VKontakte account "Prodvigate. Let's Make Your YouTube Channel Popular," the Zen.yandex account, which is simply a version of the YouTube channel, and the Telegram channel, which also duplicates video tutorials from YouTube, but also has tutorial articles.

       

      Is Prodvigate a scam?

      According to our own data ProdvigateWith a starting budget of $49 per week, the number of views will be 5414 (or 2111 minimum) and 100 subscribers will be added. Such a result is possible, but not obligatory, and these figures should not be taken seriously, as they are not actually justified by anything and, moreover, are not guaranteed in any way. And even as the comment to these indicators the company pays attention that the forecast of subscribers all the same depends on quality of a content, and not from actions of the company.

      But that's not the most important thing. Most creators of YouTube channels with constant posting of content aim to monetize the channel. But promotion by itself is not a way to make money. Therefore, even if you manage to attract new visitors through Prodvigate, it does not guarantee an influx of money.
      Most reviews of Prodvigate are positive, their strategy in most cases seems to really lead to an increase in the number of subscribers and likes in most cases, in this context Prodvigate is not a scam.

       

      Conclusion

      Prodvigate - A service that can rather be recommended to large channels that are already monetized, but for which it is important to have even more likes and subscribers, and the money requested by the service is relatively small. For small channels of novice users, the costs may be too high.

        I recommend it to everyone

        Hello, I want to leave feedback on the service Prodvigate. I honestly did not count on the arrival of an audience, because I record covers, and the camera is not very, but there is an attendance! Comments very willingly leave. Sign up gradually. I first tried 1,900 ₽ promotion, and then I took 3,000… Read more
