In 25 years of successful business ownership, I have NEVER found a company as honest, helpful and effective as Hawke Media! Let me explain:I was having an issue getting my new company approved as an advertiser in Facebook / Instagram and I turned to Hawke Media to for help with not only getting this approval taken care of, but also to manage my social media and online marketing so that I could focus on the critical aspects of my business. For more than a year prior to calling Hawke, I had built a multi-million dollar App for the sole purpose of advertising it on the Facebook and Instagram platforms. Never in a million years would I have guessed that after my app was finished and included in both the Apple and Google play stores, that my app would NOT be approved with Facebook/ Instagram. THIS WAS DEVASTATING!!! I tried for nearly a year to get Facebook to respond to us as to why we were denied or what we could do to fix it and to my frustration, I got no where and more shocking, I wasn't even getting messages back to my questions or concerns from Facebook.I contacted Hawke and spoke to a man named Max Finke and told him about my app and explained to them both my issues as well as what I needed in terms of a marketing partner to ensure that my new app was going to be successful. After our initial call, Max told me that I would get a call back with their thoughts on how they could assist with my marketing, but first they wanted to see if they could help me get approved for Facebook Marketing. Within 2 weeks, Max sent me an email letting me know that Hawke Media had worked behind the scenes to get my App Approved and that we were good to go forward with marketing! I could NOT believe my ears.... But wait, there is more to this....The MOST unbelievable part of this review is that without Hawke Media and their team, MILLIONS of dollars and nearly 2 years of mine would have been flushed down the toilet and when I asked Max how much I owed them for getting my company back on track after ALL HOPE was LOST..... His told me that we did NOT owe them anything and that they were happy to help me!!!WHAT COMPANY WOULD DO THAT? The only thing they knew about me was my Company Name and my account information with Facebook. They did not take a credit card up front. They did not make promises or guarantees to me and they did not give me stipulations that I would owe them anything if they could get me approved. Are you kidding me?? I could have walked away and never done a single dollar worth of business with Max Finke or Hawk Media and let me tell you something, that is very rare in this day in age!Marketing has Begun... Lets talk about what happened next:After my approval to advertise on Facebook the COVID-19 Crisis hit the globe. My marketing budget was obliterated, my other companies were virtually destroyed and the future of not only my app, but my life (like so many others) were left up in the air. I called Max Finke to let him know that although I had no words for how grateful I was for them helping me get my company back on track, I was in serious trouble and I am going to need to hold off on any big marketing plans that I was planning. Max's response was, Brian, that is not a problem and we are here when you are back on your feet. Again... This is unbelievable to me that this company had done so much for me and here they are again, genuinely caring about my situation and doing what they could to keep me positive.After that call, I decided that I would invest in a minimum budget and with the help of Maddie Marten, Max Finke and the Hawke Media Team... I can honestly say that the results I have seen are ABSOLUTELY OFF THE CHARTS INCREDIBLE and I foresee my company becoming a massive success thanks mostly to them!If you took the time to read this, then I know you are serious about your company and taking it to the moon. Let me tell you that if you want results and you want the help of a team of people that TRULY care about you and your company, you have come to the right place! Call them.
Hawke Media is the best! Every team I have worked with has been amazing. They deliver on time, they are flexible with my needs and they always come with great ideas. I look forward to working with them forever and ever...
Bites ideas from Black independent creatives & deletes evidence to cover this up. Seems to create google reviews to disguise negative reviews as well. Beware.
I have been working with Hawke for the last 2 months and i am thus far extremely pleased with the level of communication their team as provided me. I am using them for our internal affiliate and email management part of their services. There follow-up and responses to my emails are fantastic, i am yet to have any complaints regarding their team. I have been through 10+ media agencies and have yet to find a company with the level of communication this company offers. I will follow up with results as time progresses.
Super disappointed. This has really affected our cash flow. I do not believe the reporting is accurate at all. Very expensive monthly cost plus we spent thousands on ads and the returns the claimed do not match up at all. They claimed revenue that was NOT theirs to claim. Though the staff is very friendly and convincing the numbers are a total loss!!
I like this place.
Terrible experience. We paid 13k for nothing. Facebook ads: our income decreased 30% with them. Every “optimization” was worse than the last one. Even facebook support said the ads were not running well. They said we had to wait 2 or 3 months to see the results, because they had to start from scratch. A total nonsense because our ads were performing well and we already had a lot of data. They tell you to be patient in order to lock you into the next month. Email: after one month we didn’t see any execution. Literally nothing. We asked for a refund for the second month that we didn’t use, and they said that they couldn’t do that because they have a 30 days cancellation policy, which means you have to sign the contract for the first month and immediately cancel, otherwise you’ll be charged automatically for the second month. Terrible business practice. So shady.
The Team at Hawke have been absolutely fantastic throughout the entirety of the project. So responsive and engaging with the output and creativity being phenomenal. The best agency experience I've had in my career and what's more, the whole relationship has been built remotely - between LA and London.
Was hounded to schedule a call for a few months. Call happened was told they would follow up with ideas/options and now its been almost 2 weeks and I haven't heard a word from them since.
We have been with Hawke for 2.5 years. Amazing company with excellent service. We wouldn't be with any other company!
