Yeah, I just saw it. I think they fall down on a customer relations 101. That is, when you c0ck up in business, say sorry and offer to make up for the error. Instead their post on FB was basically "sorry, we c0cked up ..," and then crickets.

I don't think they have an account to post here. But I think their customer service is quite good, at least they admitted their mistakes. They saw your post but didn't piss off, even you said something bad on them, said like "thanks for your advice."

Most of people won't admit their mistakes, even this is just a little thing.

It's hard to admit mistakes when you are never wrong. Just ask the iRON MAiDEN.

Its very difficult for non specialised maybe even non golfing people to try and compete with the majors OEM's.

 

The golf ball market is the most difficult segment to succeed in ,,,, Foremost (Forte) have already tried once in

Australia and failed, even with some ok balls but mainly designs that had the incorrect specs for this market,,,,

 

What I see here is a marketing company approach to being a golf company and golfers are a very tough sell.

They need to trust you / trust your ideas / trust your products and then want to play your product but at what price?

 

Social media alone will not bring them a level of sales that will make all this effort worthwhile from my humble experience.

Might just be because it is also close to the mark.

Boz,

 

Agreed.

 

It's difficult to drag any decent % of market share away from the big boys. Even harder to do if your product is higher priced than the majority of the market. Almost impossible to do if the only thing you know is social media marketing techniques.

 

Giving away free **** might snag one or two customers, but even with my limited understanding of the golf ball market it is easy enough to see they are trying to carve a niche without offering anything unique to the industry.

 

I almost bothered trying to get the free balls on offer, then common sense kicked in and the thought of either trying the balls, liking them and going back to what I use anyways, or trying them, hating them and going back to what I use anyways ended with the same result.

 

Overpriced, no appeal to a specific market, no real evidence of any performance increase, dodgy review tactics. Can't see them lasting in an already highly contested limited sized market like the Australian golf scene.

 

Move along, nothing to see here. :D

Got two free balls in the mail.
Hit one twice and threw it back into the bag.

Some people think the world is flat. You have no evidence to say that about Boz.  He is a respected and helpful member here.
