If you've seen any of the press releases, Tweets or self congratulatory announcement on their website announcing that they were awarded a "Best of", you, like I, may have said what the Hell is a Pulse of the City? Exactly. I never heard of them...so I went digging.
Here's Decktech's "award." Now what does it mean? Really...truthfully, not much, my opinion is Pulse of The City is a pay to play award annointer. Give us money in the form of promo packages and we'll promote you...they are a privately held company and little is known about them. Searches to confirm their 20 years in construction draw up short...Not saying they aren't but why can't I find anything concrete to verify the claim?
|SO HERE IS DECKTECH'S AWARD AT PULSEOFTHECITY.COM|
AS YOU CAN SEE, THEY WANT TO SELL DECKTECH SOMETHING, SEE THE RED BUTTON?
|AND HERE IS THE OPTION PACKAGES COSTS. THIS IS WHY THEY "GIVE" AWARDS.|
DON'T BE FOOLED, IT'S BS!
Their website is designed to sell sell sell, here's a sales pitch for you that they push...
|Sites like Yelp and Angies list have rogue reviews you can't control...|
but when you buy from us, well dontch'a know it's an award that separates you from your money
Pulse has only been around for a few years, handing out awards. Real awards are handed out be recognized entities. If you don't recognize something as a known institution, such as American Institute of Architects (AIA), then it's probably not.
