Website: AutoPilot Cash System
Owner: Andy Brocklehurst
Startup Cost: $17 + $5
The idea is to sign up to the main system and the rotator and refer others to do the same. As I will show you, you'll be lucky to get any referrals for a lengthy period of time due to the way this is set up. This is a dud system and in my opinion it's a scam. I do not recommend this.
The underlying program itself is called 'AutoPilot Cash Systems' (http://autopilotcashsystems.com) which costs $17 to sign up for. The rotator system (http://apcfunnel.net) costs $5 and offers a so called 'guaranteed' way of getting tons of new referrals into that program.
It sounds exciting and lucrative, but when you look closer at the details, it's really not.
How The Rotator System Works
Essentially, there are two main ways this system works and I'll explain those now so you know how this works.
#1 Promote Your Own Page Independently
When you sign up you get your own unique sales page tagged with your unique affiliate link. The idea is to market that page on your own via a bunch of second grade traffic sources like solo ads, traffic exchanges, spamming social media etc.
You could also pay to get traffic in various ways or learn some more legit methods such as search engine or video marketing but these cost time and money. The more you learn about these more legit traffic methods, the more you will realise that there are WAY better, more ethical and more profitable things to be promoting than this.
So this method is about signing up and getting others to sign up. Plain and simple.
#2 Promote The APC Rotator
You essentially promote one main page (apcfunnel.net) that is not unique to you and when you drive traffic to this page and someone clicks the 'get started' button the system randomly picks a unique affiliate link out of thousands of other people.
IF that visitor that has been landed on the sales page tagged with your unique affiliate link joins, you get a $5 commission.
The illustration below shows a group of people sending traffic to the rotator page and how the system works:
Think about this for a moment...
You are working hard to drive traffic to their rotator page in the 'hopes' that one day you'll be randomly selected to get a visitor that might sign up!
I'm sorry to say, but this is a giant load of BS in my opinion.
The only way this could be an effective strategy is if you started very early on and there was tons of traffic coming to the rotator website. Otherwise you'll be one of thousands of others waiting for a dribble of traffic.
Apparently everyone that joins is guaranteed 5 new sign ups so this list of people sharing that rotator traffic is going to be insane!
Are They Really Getting All This Traffic?
Let's first look into the companies claims of getting enormous amounts of traffic:
This would suggest that they are getting over 400,000 visitors each month if you do the math. That is certainly an achievable number, but are they really getting anywhere near this?
Here's proof according to TrafficEstimate.com:
They are getting about 10% of that and that's not even unique monthly visitors!
The real number of 38.4k each month includes repeat visitors from the same people each month. My guess is they get about 30k unique visitors each month at best. Even if that sales page converted at a rate of 10% (very optimistic) then that means there's about 3,000- 4,000 new people signing up each month.
Here's the kicker though... that was only the actual sales page statistics, not the rotator system!
The rotator page traffic stats (the stats that actually effect you) are much worse:
This is the amount of people landing on the rotator page before they click 'get started' and go through to a random affiliates sales page and it includes repeat visitors.
Note: The number of 1125 visitors in one day is possibly due to automated and/ or very low quality traffic they purchased. These days buying that kind of automated traffic only costs about $5-$10. It won't do anything for their sign ups but it looks good when you are trying to convince people to join the program right?
Let's Run Some Telling Numbers On The Rotator
They get (absolute best case) 8,000 new visitors each month to the rotator page, an undetermined portion of those are going to be repeat visitors but let's just say 8k for arguments sake.
Using an optimistic 10% conversion rate would mean 800 new people are clicking on 'get started now' each month.
Let's assume they have a current member base of about 5,000 so far.
So if 800 new people sign up and they are divided up over 5,000 existing rotator members that would mean that each member gets 0.16 new sign ups each month. At that rate it would take you about 6 months to get one $5 commission.
The trouble is there are new members joining all the time, so even though they might increase traffic to the page each month there are also new members joining the 'random selection process' each month... AKA the lottery.
The bottom line is that to get your so called 'guaranteed sign ups' is going to take months or even years, numbers don't lie.
How I worked out the 5,000 member base: In the video he claims to have made 10k so far and that video was made a while ago, so that's at least 2000 new members right? Logic: $10,000 / $5= 2000 new members. Surely they'd have at least 5000 new members since then all things considered. Logic: If they are getting an overall 40k each month to the actual sales page overall (regardless of the affiliate) then they'd be getting at least 1-2k new members each month at a 10% conversion rate. In other words, 5000 members is a very conservative estimate.
How Do The Owners Of This System Gain?
If you asked yourself how on earth the people behind this stand to gain if they are giving you 100% commissions then you are on the right track. The only way they make money directly is if people join them directly, not through an affiliates link. So why on earth do they have an affiliate program at all??
Another reason is that they are quite possibly dipping into the rotator depository.
The whole thing operates on a 'random selection process' so how would anyone ever know if they funnelled off a steady stream of these sign ups directly to themselves? Only they would know and it makes sense.
This means you'll be waiting even longer for you 'guaranteed sign ups'.
This is really not the best way for people to build an online business at all. At best this is going to be a very slow, spammy and potentially costly way to make very small commissions. You'll be paying a lot of extra money to get traffic and training to utilise it effectively if you don't already know what you are doing.
In my opinion this resembles a Ponzi scheme which means it is not sustainable or worth getting involved with. This is a scheme where the only money being made is by new affiliates investing into it. That same money is paid back to the the people that signed up before them and so on. There is no legitimate products or service being sold.
The worst part about this is that they are marketing it to everyday people who are just looking to make some extra money online.
People who are sick of the rat race and just want a legit way to build an online business. That is why I review things like this, to help people avoid these kinds of traps. The same traps I have fallen into myself over the years.
Nothing ever comes 'quick and easy' that is worth having online or offline. These guys are just telling people what they want to hear and unfortunately this creates a never ending cycle of scams for a lot of people, bringing with it a lot of frustration and loss along the way. Hope this helps.
