Extremely disappointing that this nonsense still exists. Please don't purchase.
I've just purchased the "ultimate strategic plan template," and found it to be wanting. Like others have stated, the materials are very basic. Ten minutes, or less, of research on Google, will provide you with better, more succinct and more valuable information - for free. I was drawn in by the articles written on Forbes.com and the seemingly glowing references on the company website. It's all a farce. The only return on my $97 investment is to be reminded of the ugly TV infomercials in the late '90s. After deciding to purchase the template (be reminded, my emotional decision to part with my personal money), I was led to a landing page whereupon I was forced, under the threat of being double charged if I closed the page, to watch a 5-minute video sales pitch for more services - the classic up-sell. Thereafter, I was taken to 4 or 5 more up-sell pages, with offers of more and more services. The selling techniques employed by this outfit are so outdated - "but wait, if you buy now we will make you this once-in-a-lifetime offer ...". As the CEO of a technology-related company, I hate this nonsense. In my opinion, it's just thievery at every level. I can well afford the $97, and so will use that investment as a reminder to check reviews prior to purchasing. Reading the reviews here, it seems that Growthink is praying on budding entrepreneurs that need to be careful with every dime; I remember those days. In closing, please do not waste your money buying this company's products - it's teetering on being a scam, but in the best possible light, it's just not relevant and certainly not worth paying for. @Growthink's customer service: Please, please do not engage with me here and ask me to call you, or provide some lip service to this review in an attempt to placate readers. It's transparent and thoughtless. Spend your time and energy on creating useful products - that's how you build a good reputation. This review will be posted on every social media outlet available to me. It's the least I can do to protect entrepreneurs from being prayed upon.
