Website and services
The website for Platinum Immigration is basic yet simple enough to understand. In addition to important information links, the website also includes a blog section that contains immigration news, but we noticed that the information is not up to date and the last article was posted 7 December 2016. A great deal of change has occurred in terms of Canadian immigration procedures since December 2016 but the management of Platinum Immigration have yet to update that information on their website.
On the other hand, their About Us page is too brief, lacking in depth and important information. An About Us page is there to offer clarity and insight into an organization, which is not the case with the website of Platinum Immigration.
Platinum Immigration have mentioned on their website that they provide free assessment for immigration to Canada. Platinum Immigration through its Placement Division also offer settlement services, career guidance, resume writing, job interview tips and other related services.
Under Platinum Immigration there are a number visa options such as:
- Student visa
- Visitors visa
- Family Sponsorship
- Provincial Nominee Programs
- Investor Programs
Social media and online reviews
There are social media links on the website for Platinum Immigration for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ and they all link to the respective site profiles. The Facebook page leaves a lot to be desired as it contains a measly 616 likes, just like their website the Facebook page was last updated in December 2016, and nearly 80% of the posts are about Express Entry draws, surely there is more news to be shared concerning Canadian immigration than just Express Entry. In keeping with the theme of not taking social media seriously the Twitter page for Platinum Immigration is just as disappointing, with 7 followers and just over 20 tweets.
There is not much information about Platinum Immigration on the internet in terms of reviews, however, we managed to run their website through Scam Advisor and their website had a 91% safety rating, a domain age of 6 years and 93 days, and the address correlates with the one provided on Platinum’s website.
Although it appears that the management of Platinum Immigration do not care about their presence on social media or find a need to update news on their blog section we cannot fault them on legitimacy and that Mr. Ranhotra is a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC).
Despite having the capacity and capability to handle Canadian immigration issues we would like to see Platinum Immigration improve its social media presence, update its news and blog pages.
