Dr Mumbo

Five star proof that the staff of BCM Partnership are definitely not astroturfers

Dr Mumbo felt rather sorry for Brisbane ad agency BCM partnership after its staff were busted astroturfing a government client’s App Store ratings.

As one anonymous – but (Dr Mumbo is certain) completely disinterested commenter who happens to have a Brisbane IP address put it on Mumbrella: “Who Cares? If this helps them get a good app into people’s hands then good on them.”   

And lots of agencies do it.

And Dr Mumbo’s sure that this astroturfing of reviews isn’t something that BCM staff indulge in on a widespread basis.

BCM Facebook five starAfter all, they’re a reputable agency. The reason Dr Mumbo knows this is because BCM Partnership averages a healthy 4.3 stars out of five on Facebook.

And it’s neither here nor there that among the ordinary members of the public scoring the agency five out of five on Facebook are the following people:

  • Facebook five star reviewsBCM Partnership account manager Essie O’Shaughnessy
  • BCM Partnership director of strategy Joanne Stone;
  • BCM Partnership account director Gemma Boucher;
  • Former BCM Partnership account coordinator Sarah Cox
  • Former BCM Partnership account executive Courtney Wotherspoon;
  • BCM Partnership MD Paul Cornwell;
  • BCM Partnership receptionist Angie Hancock;
  • BCM Partnership account manager Sarah Fitzpatrick;
  • BCM Partnership general manager Gillian Tucker.

But it’s all obviously completely above board. Good on them, as a certain anonymous commenter might say.
