From time to time I receive an email asking me to join the EU Business Register.
But what is it and is it a con?
I did some investigation and made a Youtube video
If you join the register this is what their small print says about the cost:
THE VALIDATION TIME OF THE CONTRACT IS THREE
YEARS……. …..THE PRICE PER YEAR IS EURO 995.
Yes – you read that correctly – it costs nearly 3000 Euros for an entry. Ok – so you’d think a Europe wide register that charges that much to join would have a really flashy website, with lots of enticing graphics and would make it really easy to search for what you want. Well you might think that – this is their website:
Does that make you want to use it? Do you think anyone ever finds it? Have you ever seen the EU Business Register website appear in the search results?
I think I can safely say that the answer to all of those questions is no. If you make the mistake of handing over three thousand Euros you will get precisely zero new customers from your entry.
I did some more research, watch the video to see the results.
