“I Know Yorkshire is a money making scam”


written by on 19/04/2012

I am a small business on the Yorkshire coast and have been registered with I Know for 4 years now, I was determined not to re-register with them for 2012 after very poor feed back, but somehow they managed to persuade me to sign up for another year - I realy wish I hadent.

It is now late April, Easter has come and gone, and in the past two months the enquireys from "I Know Yorkshire" have averaged out at one per week, and all this for around £400 per year, I must be stark raving bonkers, who is making money here ? them or me.

I would not recommend I Know Yorkshire at all, the business generated from signing up with them is virtualy non-existent.

i agree, I just received an email from i know yorkshire offering me a free upgrade to the next advertising tier if i resign for next year, when they phoned me i was told the price was nearly doubling, so it was'nt a free upgrade at all. The supposed reason for the vast increase, i had in their view received £8000 of business from them last year. The real figure is more like £2000 if they are lucky but they seem to think that web clicks and enquirys are bookings, Unfortunate fact i know yorkshire, a booking is when a guest actually books with you and real money changes hands not when someone looks at your website.

we have advertised with iknow yorkshire for years but they are getting greedy they want 15% of revenue they say they generate how on earth they know how much to base it on when all they are is a internet search system and not a booking agent
think we will look elsewhere when it runs out
in the begining they where good but enquires have gone down year on year but fees keep rising
