Name: Autopilot Profits by Ewen Chia
Price: $27 (No up-sells)
Overall Rating: 1 out of 10 stars. I actually contemplated giving it 0 stars, but it does have a tiny bit of decent information, but a large majority is just garbage.
Ewen Chia is an old name in the internet marketing world and I’ve reviewed a few of his programs before. One common issue I found (among many others) is that the products are extremely old and the methods taught just don’t work anymore. Guess what the issue with Autopilot Profits is?
Yep, it’s the same and there’s an even bigger problem I found which makes recommending this program even harder. Let’s just say you can’t pay me enough to say it’s worth purchasing!
The program is just an ebook and a few videos talking about affiliate marketing. The information is not new, and most of the stuff you’re taught is not only general, but it’s just not going to work, period. I’ll go over the specifics very shortly, but I honestly think following any of the methods this program teaches is going to set you up for failure.
Um, where’s the ebook?
So after I purchased the program, the first thing I was asked to do was download the Autopilot Profits ebook. When I tried to open the page in a new window, it gave me a 404 error. When I downloaded it and tried opening it up (PDF), it said it can’t open.
I assumed I had the most updated version of adobe installed, but I downloaded it again just in case, tried downloading the ebook and again kept receiving the same problem. Now these kinds of things happen rarely, but sometimes programs do have old ebooks which don’t open, are missing or just maybe not up to date. Autopilot Profits has all 3 problems and I can’t even figure out how to fix it because…
There is no link to support anywhere…
Support is a huge tell of how good a program is. There’s support which tries to sell to you (the bad kind), the kind that doesn’t exist (also bad) and finally one which actually answers questions (the only good kind) and while there a VERY few places that have it, Autopilot Profits doesn’t have it AT ALL.
I can’t contact the merchant directly and there is NO support email to tell them the ebook doesn’t open up. So what am I to do? I guess requesting a refund is my only option.
But how do you request a refund when you can’t get in touch with Ewen? Well the good news is that this product is associated with Clickbank and I can contact them, so there’s hope for my refund after all.
The only information you can get is in the videos:
The ebook is missing, but the videos are still working and that’s what I ended up having to look through to get any information on this program. There are 7:
Video 1: Is it really doable: It explains a summary of the program. You’ll “learn” about affiliate marketing in general and what this program will teach you.
Video 2: Finding a hungry crowd. All you learn is general basics on niche marketing.
Video 3: Feeding the hungry. More general information on affiliate marketing and promoting a relevant product to your niche crowd. In other words, you learn to sell things like weight loss products to niche audiences within the weight loss topic.
Video 4: Site setup and redirects. REALLY old information on making a website and doing unnecessary things. The better way to do all this is to follow the updated approach that I take which by the way isn’t Ewen’s since he’s not known for updating his information.
Video 5: Fast traffic techniques. They’ll show you basic marketing techniques like pay per click and just give you some information on how to use it. And honestly, that information is just BAD. Remember when I said following this will set you up for failure? Well this training on PPC is one of those. Follow my personal guide to PPC instead.
Video 6: Long term traffic techniques. It’s ironic to call this “long term” because what it explains in this video is going to make your results SHORT term at best. They talk about:
- Article marketing (No longer good)
- Forum marketing (Outdated)
- Backlinking (Your site will get penalized)
- Traffic exchanges (Wrong audience coming to your site)
- There’s other things, but these were the ones which I remembered.
Video 7: Putting it all on Autopilot. Just a summary of the “potential” of using this system and now that you know what’s inside based on my explanation of it, all you have is a bunch of useless info.
- No up-sells.
- Bad, useless, outdated information.
- You can’t download the ebook.
- No support email.
- More bad products added to the growing list Ewen releases.
Final Rating: Autopilot Profits
Red Flag (Scam)
1 out of 10 stars. Bad program. Seriously, it’s horrible. What’s better than this? Well just about everything, but here’s the best one that’s the complete opposite of Autopilot Profits.
My final thoughts:
To say a program is a scam is something I am very careful about because in order to be called such a thing, the program or product has to really lead people in the wrong direction. Technically what this program teaches works, but only if you turn back the clock maybe 10 years.
To stay outdated and keep promoting things that no longer work and making money doing so means fooling people and I can tell you that after reviewing other products from Ewen, the information is just about the same. So it’s wrong to keep giving people this kind of stuff. Seriously Ewen, update your information, for your own sake.
Outdated information isn’t the only problem. The other is that there’s no real step-by-step approach. Maybe it’s in the ebook, but remember, I couldn’t open it. So not only do we have bad techniques, but people will also not have an exact road to take with this program.
