    Pros: 

    None - No chance to use the product.

    Cons: 

    Horrible communication and lack of access.

    There have been problems every step of the way. I was excited to try this product for my business, however, I haven't even experienced the product due to lack of access to the product.

    When I first signed up, I received an email not through Guru.social, but through a system called "PayPro" for my 14 day trial. This email said "You can start using your product(s) as soon as you wish, using the direct download links listed below:" I clicked on the link, and landed on a page that said "Thank You page that said I will get updates about the product." with no access to login and use the product. I sent an email explaining the situation, received an email back from Maksym with a login and password and link. I tried to login, the site says “these credentials do not match our records”.

    Today, I received an invoice for a service I have yet to use. It's been one week, I've sent multiple requests to cancel my service and haven't received a response.

    Sara Keith has never used this product.
  • Pros: 

    None - Can't access my account

    Cons: 

    Think it's a scam

    I can't even try the product due to lack of access.

    When I first signed up, I received an email not through Guru.social, but through "PayPro" for my 14 day trial.

    This email only sends you to a thank you page with no access to login and use the product. I sent an email explaining the situation, received an email back from Maksym with a login and password but still no portal to actually enter those details.

    There is not even a LOGIN button on their site.

Thanks, Ruslan for make us alive at Product Hunt :) My name is Max, and I'm founder at Guru.Social I'm happy to show you our lovely tool for automatization routine in social media. We are working on this product for almost 10 months and now ready to launch. Long story short, a lot of us get awesome traction from social media. Often this process needs huge manual work. We wanna make life easier and put the most useful features into one simple tool. Now you can manage your accounts, create content, do some kind of mass-following and so on in one tool. I guess you might have questions about how we are different from hootsuite or buffer. Let's take a look at popular tools: - Hootsuite - Buffer - Sproutsocial They are cool ones, but they don't actually automate your social marketing. They only help with scheduling content for your social accounts. For that reason, we wanted to create kind of "Swiss-Army-Knife", where you will find all possible tools, automation, bots and little bit of AI in one place! We would love to hear your feedback and ready to answer to your questions Thanks!

What about the fact that auto-likes and auto-follows are TOS violations for both Instagram and Twitter? Your users would risk their accounts being banned for using that.
Mike Barwick@mikebarwick1 · Marketing Polygamist
@carafnparrish you’re 100% right. They’re API key is the likely first victim though. Any real traction and their key will be forfeited and URL blacklisted.
Cara Parrish@carafnparrish · International Marketing Consultant
@mikebarwick1 True that the the API key will be forfeited but they'll still be putting the account of every user at risk for being banned. Seems like an easy way to have a lot of angry users for violating a blatantly obvious rule.

Ok I’ll say it: no self-respecting marketer will use a tool named “Guru Social” that does mass following. Good luck with your endeavor though.

@vincentorleck Thanks for your feedback!

@maksym_vysochanskyy Hey like the landing page design. Any reason you're choosing to use that payment processor instead of Stripe or anything more friendly/conventional? I got to the checkout and stopped there.
Maksym VysochanskiyMaker@maksym_vysochanskyy · CEO of Guru.Social, Appsmoment.com
@jack7kim Hi Jack, well... we are using Payproglobal as checkout processor for more than 5 years and really like them. As far as I know, there are some cons of using Stripe: 1. You need to be more technical to insert their codes especially for recurring payments 2. They don't send notification about cancelled or declined recurring payments. If I am wrong - let me know
Kees Romkes@kees_romkes · Head of BI & -Processes
@maksym_vysochanskyy @jack7kim likewise, actually asking for my (private) address for signing up is a bit 'not done' in Germany, and keeps me from signing up - especially in a test phase (although I understand the lock in, I don't agree on the method)

@kees_romkes Ok thanks for your feedback and we will take that to the consideration
