SocialFormulae – Our Review in a nutshell
SocialFormulae (formally “SocialFormula” without the “e” at the end) is an online company that offers services across several social media platforms, including SoundCloud. In addition to “Buy Plays,” they also offer the options to buy downloads, followers, likes, comments, and reposts. Various packages are also available which bundle these services together.
For sure, SocialFormulae offers fair prices. There are 5 different plans from 1,000 to 50,000 plays. All payments are made through PayPal.
SoundCloud Play Prices
500 Plays – $6
1,000 Plays – $9
2,500 Plays – $20
5,000 Plays – $30
10,000 Plays – $50
20,000 Plays – $90
50,000 Plays – $200
100,000 Plays – $400
SocialFormulae provides only an email form on their “Contact Us” page. We wrote them an email to ask a few questions, and they answered the following day. The signature of the person who replied said that they worked for “C-Stream Media,” so apparently their Customer Service is being outsourced.
One other thing that we noticed is that their website ran extremely slow during our testing, and several of the pages were “not available” or led to a 404 error. It makes us wonder if there is a live person operating the site, or if it’s been completely turned over to automation/outsourcing.
Money-Back Guarantee – Only if an error was made
On the footer of every page are links to their Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policies. They promise to protect your identity and not to share your information with others, and all the other standard language.
They don’t really advertise any sort of money back guarantee, but within the Term and Conditions there is a sentence that reads, “We provide 100 percent money-back on our services if there are failures and errors that happened within the time frame of generating and delivering the services. For you to get the refund, you must follow strict rules. Remember that we will not refund anyone after the order has been completed and you must also have a valid reason for asking a refund.”
In other words, they’ll refund your money only if an error was made, and NOT if you’re merely unsatisfied.
Even though SocialFormulae seems to have rebranded itself recently, it’s a legitimate website offering various SoundCloud services. They are safe and secure enough, although it would be nice if were easier to understand exactly who they are.
However, their prices are unnecessarily high for a company that delivers average service. Given that there are other providers on our top five list that offer a similar or better service at a lower price… AND with more personal customer support. Overall, we’d recommend SocialFormulae, but we still wouldn’t call them the best option.
