Today’s online marketing product review is focusing on a newly released product called Arbitrage Autopilot Profits.
In case you’re wondering, I had to Google what arbitrage actually meant as it kind of sounded made up, but in reality it wasn’t.
In economics and finance, arbitrage is the practice of taking advantage of a price difference between two or more markets: striking a combination of matching deals that capitalize upon the imbalance, the profit being the difference between the market prices.
In other words, arbitrage is the act of acting as the middle man or broker, where you find someone who wants a product or service and you supply it to them by outsourcing it.
This style of making money has been thrown around numerous times, especially with the growth of sites like Fiverr.com where outsourcing has become cheap, cheap, cheap!
The question is, what does this product bring to the table?
The site marketing this product is a pretty standard affair. It focuses mainly on the fact that you don’t need any investment, website, skills or an email list.
The testimonials look legitimate, but it’s always hard to sway especially as somewhere from the Warrior Forum where not every testimonial is the real deal.
There was the usual mess of bolded and underlined text, as well as the usual unprovable proof in the form of a PayPal screenshot.
Nothing on this sales page made me think that this product was any more or less legitimate than the thousands of other marketing products out there.
Purchasing Arbitrage Autopilot Profits
The core product itself is on a dime sale, and while I picked it up for $8 dollars, it will cap at $9.
As with any low priced front end offer, there are of course upsells.
The first was for a $27 dollar product that includes more training that will supposedly take “it to the next level” in terms of earnings. On rejection a slightly modified version is offered for $17.
For me, that’s where the upsells ended, though the affiliate page suggests that if you purchased the first upsell, you would then be pushed a membership offer at $47 per month.
After purchasing I was dismayed to find out I couldn’t instantly access the product. My money was taken instantly, and the author even said in the thank you page video that
“[he has] just sprinted back to [his] laptop and sent you your login details for the brokering school”.
I received no such email, nor did this trickster even leave the camera!
An hour after my purchase I had still not received anything. I mean come on, how hard is it to send me a damn email?
After sending an email to their support and sometime later, the login details finally arrived.
This was obviously not a good start with this product; let’s hope the actual training is better.
The product itself is within a membership site, and my initial thoughts was that the training was divided into four sections, but a closer look shows that section 2,3, and 4 are actually premium options.
As such section 1 is the main training. This is in turn broken down further into 5 steps. Each of which is a video. In total you will be given 40 minutes of training, plus some extras such as a case study.
Without preamble this video takes you to Fiverr.com (surprise, surprise) and begins to teach you how to “become” an expert logo designer.
This consists of changing some Fiverr settings to find a top rated seller who will deliver a logo for $5 in a day.
This is crap. There is no way a (good) designer will provide anything of quality for that price and timescale.
The author then proceeds to tell you to “swipe” the Fiverr images…
After this dubious action your training then turns to Craiglist where you create an advert/profile stating you are a logo designer and then proceed to upload the images you just swiped.
Is this merely morally grey or simply unethical? You decide.
The second part of this so called training teaches you how to use a Google query to find potential customer for your newly founded logo business.
Here you will learn how to respond to any adverts you find looking for a logo.
This section continues on the email topic and discusses how to respond should the potential lead respond to your initial email. It does provide a good tip on how to send the client the image before payment using watermarks.
This video combined telling you to now go and buy a logo (if you have successfully landed a client) and also that you should buy his other products. Other than that this video won’t teach you anything.
The Bottom Line
The videos are short and to the point and do effectively guiding you through how to find a logo designer and how to advertise and respond to emails.
As this type of system isn’t new, there will be others that will be doing the same as you, and while this is location dependant, you may find your successes more hit and miss unless your wording and logos are better than the rest.
Is this product a scam?
Not as such, as you get something for your money, though the name of the product is somewhat misleading as there is nothing autopilot about it.
I do however have my doubts of the legality and ethics of the system as a whole, but you will have to make your own mind up about that.
