Autopilot Profits Review 2018: Blatant Scam… Here’s Why

So here is the Autopilot Profits Review 2018. It is important that I make this clear right from the start… I have NOT tried this product.

I seriously looked into using this program about a month ago (around the same time that I tried FMPS) and there were some things that really made me question its legitimacy.

I wanted to share what I have learnt about the product from online research and how I assessed whether the program was a scam or not.

Autopilot Profits- The Overview and Rankings


  • Name: Autopilot Profits
  • Owner: Ewan Chia
  • Website URL: www.autopilotprofits.com
  • Support: 5 out of 100
  • Training: 10 out of 100
  • Success Stories: 9 out of 100
  • Price: $37 (plus numerous upsells)
  • Maketimeonline.com Rating: 8 out of 100

Pros and Cons


Pros

  • 60 day Money Back- It is a Clickbank product, which means it is usually easy enough to get a refund.
  • Motivation from Ewan Chia (who should maybe stick to being a motivational speaker!)

Cons

  • UPSELLS!! I hadn’t even bought anything but the page pops up with potential add-ons. Other reviews claim there are 14 upsells in total
  • Lack of quality training- From the reviews that I have read there are only a handful of useful videos. Most of this stuff can be found for free on YouTube.
  • No clear direction- hard to tell what the product actually does
  • Blackhat lessons (naughty tricks)- the training provided is about how to use unethical methods to trick people into thinking they will gain some value.
  • Fake promotions- It claims there are only 4 seats left to claim the product at a price lower than originally offered if you try to click away. It even has a countdown timer to pressure you into buying.

What Makes Me Believe This is a Scam?


1. Big Claims and Unrealistic Expectations

Ewen Chia boasts about buying Ferrari’s to motivate you into buying the program. It is great that Ewan has managed to do this and it’s important to celebrate success. However, as soon as someone starts boasting about big lavish claims that this one program can get you it is a “Red Flag” online.

It should be pretty obvious that this one program hasn’t provided this lifestyle, but other areas of Ewan’s life. However, let’s dig a bit deeper…

2. Creating an online ATM in 24 hours without touching it

So Supposedly we can get 10 “online ATM” machines that pay us while we sleep, without needed to do anything to it… “or even think about it!!”

If this claim is not a red flag then I don’t know what is!! The phrase “it sounds too good to be true” springs to mind! And you know when you hear that about making money online, it probably is… I’ve learnt this the hard way.

3. Lack of support

The Facebook page has a whopping total of 88 people that like the page! The bit that makes it a bit more concerning is that there are no comments from anyone on the page, despite the numerous posts from Autopilot Profits. This seems a bit strange when comparing it to a legitimate program like Wealthy Affiliates with 8,800 likes and regular interaction.

4. An average rebill total of $0 on Clickbank

For me, this says everything I need to know about a product. If the rebill total (people that buy more from the company) is less than the initial sale it’s clear that the people that buy the product do not rate it and do not buy more from it. The fact it has a big fat $0 rebill total says it all.

5. It has 14 Upsells

Here’s a breakdown of the prices and upsells of Autopilot Profits to help blow you away…

  1. Autopilot Profits – $37 but will become $27 if you try to click away.
  2. Mega Traffic Package – $67
  3. Autopilot Social Profits – $147
  4. Instant Websites – $197
  5. Ultimate Free Traffic Software – $297
  6. Traffic Millionaire – $19.97/ month
  7. Shortcut to $10k – $9.97
  8. Super Affiliate Millionaire Online Workshop training – $297
  9. Cash Biz – $29.97
  10. Traffic Avalanche – $37
  11. Copy Paste Income – $37
  12. Complete Business Setup – $297
  13. MTTB – $49 + 19/month + $1997
  14. Pure Leverage – $24.95/month + $19.95/ month

Total expenditure if you were to buy everything – $3,804.75!

So it’s not like there isn’t anything else to buy from Autopilots Profits, which confirmed my suspicions about the $0 rebill total on Clickbank.

6. Spam emails

I received 5 emails in one day from Ewan and I haven’t even bought anything!! If this is the way he is going to train me to make money online, then I really need to consider if I want to be that guy…

I know that you want to stay on people’s minds but 1 a day is more than enough to do this. Anything over 3 a day just becomes a nuisance!!

 

Autopilot Profits Tools & Training


You will be provided with a 59-page “e-book” (see here) and 20 videos. The longest video is 10 minutes but most of the others are 5 minutes or less. To be fair for $27 we shouldn’t expect much more!

There are 3 basic elements to the training program:

Training #1 – Learning the system (Basically you just get a brief overview of how the internet works and how to create a squeeze page- this is a one-page website where you try to get people to sign up to your email list, usually providing them with something for free)

Training #2 – Setting up the system (Lessons on traffic through solo ads and how to get affiliate links to promote)

Training #3 – Profit with the system (More traffic lessons)

Personally, I wanted a program with training as I was new to making money online. From my research, this did not look like it would be sufficient.

Autopilot Profits: The “MakeTimeOnline” Review Final Word


To be honest there is not much more to say. There are so many red flags on this program that it was hard to see it as anything but a scam.

It’s important to remember I haven’t actually tried it out so if you are brand new to making money online there’s a chance there will be some useful information in there. The challenge will be to find the little nuggets that get lost in between all the upselling!

I have been living a life following “the script”. I grew up in England, went to school, university and then got a job as a teacher. I bought a house and got married (obviously the best decision of my life as my wife, Sarah, is possibly the greatest human being on the planet!) But I’ve always felt like there is more to life than just waking up and going to work for someone else. I have been blogging since mid-2017. I am now on a journey to put the pieces of the puzzle for making money online. I would love to help as many people as possible that are looking to make money online to free up their time.

  1. Hello Mike;
    Thanks for this info Mike, since its on ClickBank, why don’t they take it off if its a scam? Sounds like ClickBank is making something on it also. Wishing you the best of luck.

    • Hi Billy,

      That is a super question! I guess it technically is not a scam as there is an e-book and some training. It just doesn’t deliver what it makes it look like it will.

      We have to be realistic and there are no programs that will make you an online ATM machine with no work involved… especially not for $27!

      From my research, I don’t think Clickbank has very good affiliate marketing products available. The big tell-tale sign is how poor the rebill amounts are for their products.

      Obviously, people can find out some basic information from the Autopilot Profits, I’m just questioning whether it’s worth the time or money invested.

      Thanks for your comment

      Mike

  2. You’re completely right! I have also reviewed this product and I have to agree with everything that you pointed out in your own review.

    With some of the upsells you mentioned, some of them, like Copy paste Income, are just upsells to his other products. Basically, he would use autopilot profits to get you to buy copy paste income and he would use copy paste income to promote more of his other products.

    VERY UNETHICAL!

    • Hi Reyhana,

      Thanks for your comments! It was obviously for me to tell completely as I didn’t go through the process myself but the more I learnt the more I was grateful that I didn’t bother! I was very close to giving it a shot, so I can completely understand people that try it out.

      The Upselling and as you say the unethical side to these programs are what gives making money online such a bad name. But there are so many good ones out there it’s just a case of people finding them.

      Are you using affiliate marketing yourself?

      Mike
