Auto Profit Sites is another "done-for-you" website that claims to make a lot of money. If you're been in the online marketing business for a while, you can tell just by looking at the sales page that it's "another one" from Warrior Plus. It's a rehashed version of many other typical products that have "proven to sell". It's primarily targeted to brand new beginners who have never seen this kind. Those who often struggle to understand certain jargon and hope to bypass some technical stuff to make money would be interested.
Like so many similar others, the actual product isn't too bad, but the sales page is grossly misleading. Today my Auto Profit Sites review will explain what you'll get, and also explain what to look out for so that you won't end up spending money on unnecessary tools or programs.
Auto Profit Sites Review
What Is Auto Profit Sites?
Auto Profit Sites claims to be the "first and only software solution that makes it easy for anyone to bank multiple income streams and build their list at the same time."
Well, it's not really the "first and only" though, as we've seen so many products from Warrior Plus with exactly the same sales copy. But there are some good things about this product. Mainly;
- A partly customizable, pre-made 4-page website is provided and hosted.
- A simple graphic editor allows you to create a logo and banners.
- It connects to any major autoresponder of your choice.
- It will provide some free traffic ideas and will also send some visitors to your site.
All you do is sign up with some affiliate programs and insert your affiliate links where indicated. So it does allow a first-timer to create a funnel quickly.
But there are some critical disadvantages; the website design is not the best. The "bonus" products that you give away on your site are outdated PLR products, so you won't get to learn to become a trustworthy affiliate using the Auto Profit Sites. And needless to say, you won't make "sales in as little as 60 seconds or less" with it, as the sales page claims.
There is the "DFY Funnels" section and there's also the "Blog Builder" section, but they are both identical, and both allow you to create a 4-page website containing a blog page, bridge page, webinar page, and download page.
As a website builder, it's a traditional HTML editor with shortcodes already implemented. Looks oldfashioned to me, but I guess the format is universal - people who use wordprocessing software or Microsoft Office may find it easy to get on.
There is only one template that promotes the "make money online" niche (the "Blog Builder" section has the same template in 4 different colors), and the blog page already has content written in. It means all the Auto Profit Sites users will use be using the same copied content, hence you can't expect your blog page to rank on search engines. You could however, delete the text and add your own if you wanted to, although you can't really promote other niches because the suggested affiliate links and the bonus products are predominantly the MMO niche.
The "Logo and Ads" section allows you to create a logo for your site, a banner for the top menu bar as well as a banner to go in the sidebar. When finished creating a logo or a banner, save it and place it on your site right away. You could also download it and use it elsewhere if you wanted to.
As a graphic editor, it's not great (and you probably wouldn't expect it to be great). It's too basic and a little clumsy. The saved work wouldn't show up on the site, text on the banner wouldn't show up, etc, but the support is not available (I'll explain later).
If you want to create a decent logo or banner, you can use Canva instead for free. It's just quicker to use the Auto Profit Sites' built-in editor...if it works!
The seller of Auto Profit Sites, Glyn offers to send "about 100-200 clicks (visitors)" to your webpage. He says "it's like free solo ads, worth $200-$300." The offer may sound great but there are a couple of questionable points;
- "About 100-200 clicks"... Obviously there's a big difference between the two numbers. He doesn't clarify how many visitors exactly he's sending your way.
- You don't pay more than $1 per click for a solo ad service - yes, many sellers overcharge, but some sellers deliver responsive traffic for $0.50 per click or less. Solo ad traffic is such a hit & miss, paying more money doesn't necessarily mean you'll receive good buyer traffic. "About 100-200 clicks"... I would say it's worth $50-$200, depending on how many!
This "free traffic" is only offered to those who have "not asked for refund", because some abusers would buy Auto Profit Sites, receive some solo ad clicks from Glyn and claim a refund.
I think it sounds fair enough from the seller's point of view, but as a buyer, I find it amusing every time a Warrior Plus/JVZoo seller mentions abusers, puts some restrictions or even tells users NOT to request for a refund. People do take advantage of the money-back guarantee period, some may abuse it for sure, but if you don't like it, tell us about it specifically on your sales page so that we are aware before we purchase it!
Why I Cannot Recommend Auto Profit Sites
I have already mentioned that Auto Profit Sites is just another "done-for-you-website" from Warrior Plus and for this reason alone, there's nothing unique that I can recommend about. Here are a few other specific reasons and also some red flags that you might want to remember when choosing online marketing tools and training programs.
Autoresponder - Mailchimp? No!
You can connect your Auto Profit Sites account to any of the following email marketing services; AWeber, GetResponse, Mailchimp. ConvertKit, Sendlane, ActiveCampaign, HubSpot, Constant Contact, or Sendiio.
But here's a red flag. Mailchimp is one of the best email marketing services, in terms of deliverability, usability, and the number of actual users. But thing Mailchimp does NOT allow is to promote this kind of niche (make money online, work from home), and the creator should know about that. So if you ever use this product, don't ever think about signing up with Mailchimp and connect it, or you'll be banned sooner or later. Sendlane sets out a similar policy, and therefore I wouldn't use it, either.
Help Desk Doesn't Work
The help section seems to be centralized and the knowledge base shows questions and answers for other unrelated products (possibly by the same owner), including Auto Profit Funnels, High Ticket Hijack, Affistores, and AffiliFunnels - all of which are still available for sale. The support ticket appears to be available, and it requires you to specify which product you are referring to by choosing the product name from the dropdown menu, where almost 40 products are listed.
Because I found some bugs as I mentioned earlier, I tried to contact them by sending a support ticket but it doesn't work - it wouldn't let me send it. I click the "submit ticket" button and nothing happens. After I tried several times via different browsers, I gave up. With no support, I really cannot recommend Auto Profit Sites, unfortunately.
You'll Get Spammed
Just look at these emails I started receiving right after I purchased Auto Profit Sites - over 20 emails within 24 hours - many of which are in a different name, but I know these all originated from Auto Profit Sites because this particular Gmail account had never received spams before.
What's so bad is, each time I received one, I reported spam and unsubscribed from the mailing list (I had never subscribed to any of them anyway!) But I still kept receiving one after another.
What it means is that the creator Glyn must have added my email address to his multiple email lists without my consent, and possibly, as soon as I unsubscribe, he would re-subscribe me without my consent.
So it's clear that you'll be encouraged to spend more money rather than to make profits, and this is a serious nuisance. Sadly for these reasons, I would not recommend you purchase any of his products.
"Brand New Product But It Guarantees Profit"
Well, there's something that's being said on the sales page that contradicts. It says it's the "first and only software solution", but it also says, "make sales, or we'll send you $75 in compensation!" What's the reason behind it?
Glyn Kosky, along with some other "big buck" Warrior Plus sellers, releases a similar product at a low cost every single month. Instead of selling one decent brand that lasts for years and updating the versions to keep the fans, they constantly target new "do nothing and get rich quick" users, you see what I mean?
It's all-done-for-you. You don't have to learn anything, just follow the steps. You'll make a short-term profit. If not, we'll pay you $75. If this system's already proven to work, where is the previous, proven version of it? Why has he just released Auto Profit Sites as brand new and claims it to be the "first and only"? It doesn't make sense.
Testimonial by Brendan Mace
The sellers from Warrior Plus - though not all of them! - are notorious for writing testimonials to each other, so that they can sell their products more. I wouldn't necessarily call those testimonials fake, because they may have actually tested the product before the official launch. But some of them are obviously fake, e.g. "I used this product and made 100x income overnight!"
I don't want to single-out Brendan Mace, I'm sure he's a great guy, but maybe because he's a great guy, he has written too many testimonials for too many other Warrior Plus sellers. And because of it, his testimonials don't seem to have the credibility - in other words, it's fair to say that I wouldn't trust a product sales page with Brendan's name on it if I were you.
Lastly... The Shocking Confession
Right at the bottom of the Auto Profit Sites' sales page, there is one disclaimer that can be easily missed because of such small writing.
...for all intents and purposes, you agree that our content is to be considered "for entertainment purposes only".
It's a disclaimer that's often used for "fake non-fiction" products, TV products and YouTube videos that you may have seen many times. "True" ghost stories that are not real, "real" psychic readings that are totally made up...
Basically, it tells you that this product will enable you to build your list while you're getting $1,000 from every purchase throughout the sales page, but right at the end, it tells you that all the information you've learned from the page is fictitious. You're not getting leads with this product. You're not making money. Everything that's just been said is for entertainment purposes only, so don't take us seriously.
The page does contain typical get-rich-quick fantasy suggestions such as "new home, new car, laptop lifestyle"... But I believe the vast majority are looking for an online business method, not cheap thrills. I think the clause should be displayed in a bigger font to avoid confusion and wasting our money, don't you?
The same clause is displayed in your DFY funnel pages which is not editable. It means if you used Auto Profit Sites to promote your campaigns, you'd be misleading your prospects, too.
Auto Profit Sites Pros and Cons
Auto Profit Sites Review - Conclusion:
If you really want to be successful in affiliate marketing, don't waste your money on a low cost "done-for-you" product. It won't get you anywhere in the long term and you may end up wasting more money on other similar products.
No product will entirely be done-for-you anyway - you'll still have to sign up with affiliate programs, get your affiliate links and insert it where specified, sign up with an autoresponder, etc. There are things that you'll have to do to set it all up. Then you might as well build a website and create your own sales funnel using a landing page builder. It will cost you a little more than a product like Auto Profit Sites. But you'll learn the reason behind each process and build the skills, which will all be useful in years to come.
Auto Profit Sites - I don't personally recommend it.
