Bizzibiz, a franchised digital marketing and social media management company, claims it can create an impressive web presence “that represents your brand and speaks to the quality of your business!”
Recently, Bizzibiz Account Manager Chris Hendley represented the Bizzibiz brand and spoke to the quality of the Bizzibiz business with a comment leveled at the staff of UnhappyFranchisee.com.
Bizzibiz Account Manager Chris Hendley left this message on our post about the death of Don LaPre, the alleged conman and VP of a Bizzibiz affiliate who recently died in prison:

To bad Don didnt break out and come Terminate your fucking ass before killing himself you cocksuckers will write about anything on here just to get attention
and still to this day not 1 person coming Forward saying they got screwed buying a Bizzibiz Franchise and thats the only Focus you should have had from day 1 but what do you expect from Lowlife douchebags to write about i guess
Wow! Chris Hendley of Bizzibiz must be using social media techniques so cutting edge that they appear, to the untrained eye, out of control and self-destructive.
Murder-Suicide as a Social Media Tool
While most social media experts embrace open dialogue and exchange of ideas, Bizzibiz’ Chris Hendley is pioneering the use of the wish for murder-suicide as a response to those with opposing ideas.
While most social media experts would advise against using crude & vulgar terms when representing one’s company, it seems that Bizzibiz’ Chris Hendley believes in building one’s brand through the unashamed use of such bold words as “c*cksucker,” “f*cking *ss,” and “Lowlife d*uchebags.”
And while most timid social media experts would caution that the misuse of punctuation and capitalization might give the impression that one is an uneducated, illiterate and/or lazy lout, Bizzibiz’ Chris Hendley (obviously inspired by James Joyce’s Ulysses) brings the run-on sentence and random capitalization to a whole new level.
Bizzibiz’ Chris Hendley is working his social media magic on other blogs as well, including a discussion on Black Box Social Media.
In that discussion, Chris Hendley denies that Don LaPre was a VP of a Bizzibiz affiliate (although LaPre was named as such on their website) and claims that a noted franchise attorney endorses Bizzibiz (despite the fact that the noted expert entered litigation with Bizzibiz 3 months earlier). While the untrained observer might mistake these statements as deceptions, or even lies, Bizzibiz Chris Hendley won’t be detered by such things as truth or, say, ethics.
In the Blackbox discussion, Bizzibiz Account Manager Chris Hendley posted one of his most magnificent pieces of social media writings, managing to combine offensive words, random capitalization, a thinly veiled death threat, and a brilliant mangling of grammar and syntax in just 34 words:
“…i guess if Don Lapre picked another type of franchise the Pathetic unhappy franchise dipshit could write crap about that franchise to bad Don lapre didnt do the world a favor and stabbed you”
Bizzibiz: Have you left the kids home alone?
Of course, we’re not saying that everyone at Bizzibiz is unprofessional and illiterate with homicidal tendencies.
In fact, Bizzibiz CEO Jim Piccolo’s response to our concerns was thorough, professional and respectful of our right to express our views (BIZZIBIZ Franchise Founder Jim Piccolo Responds to Criticism). It was the most artful rebuttal we’ve received in a long time.
But the fact that someone like Bizzibiz Account Manager Chris Hendley is allowed to freely sabotage Bizzibiz’ online reputation unchecked is troubling. It reinforces the concern that management not only doesn’t understand social media, they aren’t even monitoring their own employees’ misuse of it.
UnhappyFranchisee.com is not advising people not to invest in the Bizzibiz franchise opportunity. That’s not what we do. But we have some valid concerns about the concept and the company, which we feel compelled to share and discuss.
Thanks to Bizzibiz Account Manager Chris Hendley, we now have one more.
