About Growth Geeks
Growth Geeks, found online at GrowthGeeks.com, is new company that works to connect freelance marketers with business owners that need one-time or short term marketing services from talented workers.
How Does It Work?
The goal of Growth Geeks is to give business owners and companies who just need a little extra help access to freelance marketers with experience and talent in a wide variety of areas.
They promise that every “Geek” that is listed and working with their website has been personally reviewed and vetted by the company before being allowed to list jobs on their platform. In many cases they will have been personally interviewed via Skype as well.
To get started on this website, you simply need to connect to Growth Gigs with your LinkedIn account. This will provide you with access to a dashboard and messaging system, which will give you the ability to speak to and hire any freelance marketers that you need.
When you contact a Geek with a job proposal, they will have a chance to review it before accepting it. If the job is accepted, you will be notified for further information regarding the specifics of the assignment.
Clients can look through available Geeks by categories of talent and experience, including Inbound Content, Social Media, Lead Generation, Public Relations, Conversion Rates, Virality, Email Marketing, and much more.
The prices for all services offered by the Geeks available for work will be clearly posted on this website, along with whether or not this worker is willing to work on a one time basis or a monthly basis.
Growth Geeks is very adamant that they allow their marketers to set their own wages for their work, and they request that their clients do not attempt to negotiate these wages with their chosen Geek. Their company believes that a “race to the bottom” for pricing is not the way that you get the help of a quality employee.
This company does offer a Guarantee, which states that if you have any issue with the work that has been produced for you, Growth Geeks will get involved and personally moderate the issue. If, however, the deliverables you receive are not the same as what was represented in the job specifics, the money will be returned to the client.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to speak to their Customer Service team about their questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by submitting them directly to their website through their Email Us link at the bottom of their web page.
Unfortunately there are very few available reviews of this company provided by either freelance workers that have partnered with this website or clients that have successfully used their services to fill their marketing needs.
That being said, if you are considering using their services to meet your own marketing needs, the company does appear to have a quality Refund Policy and all pricing is clearly displayed up front before you hire anyone, so it seems as though it is a company that businesses should feel comfortable trying for themselves.
To make the transaction as beneficial as possible, hirers should always provide as many details and specifics of the job as they possibly can, to not only ensure that they get the work they order, but also to ensure they adequately protected by the Refund Policy.

4 ‘Growth Geeks’ Reviews
I have a lot of respect for growth geeks and have been buying their services for my clients for a long time now. They're all really great and if I have a problem, I just reach out to the freelancer or the support team. It's quick and easy for me and my clients. Reselling is never a problem and the quality of the work is quality.
I've been using the growth engine + their power likes for about 10 accounts and each have been growing huge, it gives the account authority for the brand and my ig account gets more followers.
I was one of the original "Geeks" on the Growth Geeks platform, signing on after a lengthy Skype interview with one of the founders (who found me on oDesk, now UpWork). I'm a freelance writer, and provided blog posts, email newsletter copy, and other content marketing.
At first, this platform was AMAZING. I created my own gigs, set my own prices, and was getting tons of clients with the ability and willingness to pay for quality work. Given the abundance, quality, and pay rate of the work, I was more than happy to give GG a 25% cut (as opposed to the 10% at oDesk at the time and the 0% from the many clients I landed on my own).
Then things started to change. First there was a flood of lower-quality, low-rate freelancers, then there was a dramatic drop in numbers as only a few at the top and a few at the bottom were kept. For a brief time I was the only writer on the platform, then they began using my gig descriptions (which I created) and my client reviews to promote gigs at 1/3 of my price. I wrote them an email and never received a response, but a week later noticed that all of my gigs had disappeared from the public-facing area of the site.
I still had several recurring monthly gigs, but seeing where things were going I emailed those clients and let them know I'd be leaving the platform. When I closed out six gigs at once I got a rapid email response from one of the managers asking "if anything was wrong." I laid out the facts as above, said it was clear GG was ready to part company, and never got a reply.
They're a bunch of startup bros who don't really respect their freelancers or their clients, and they're selling the same shoddy work you can find on elance or UpWork for a lower price.
Followers are not as targeted as advertised. Some of the followers are not relevant. They also followed Pinterest boards/users with racy content that then turned about in our company's Pinterest feed. Be careful.
I've been working with them for a few months now and the Growth Engines are completely oversold.
"Highly targeted followers driving traffic and sales to your site"
This is completely untrue.
During the months my IG account has gone from 80 to 800 followers with NO CHANGE in engagement, traffic to site and, obviously, sales.
I, for one, can't see how this is any different than using Instagress apart from paying 1/10th the cost.
The highly-targeted claim is questionable at best. My target market is 25+ Women whereas this engine is acquiring 10-18 year-old teens that don't even have the money to buy my products.
