Auto Home Profits Review

Would you love to work from home? Are you already a stay at home parent who could do with extra cash? Perhaps you’re a student with some free time, struggling to pay for beer, uhm, food?

Even if you’re not one of the above, if you have been looking to make some money online, it’s likely that you will have come across a scam or two.

Today I want to talk to you about yet another site that is offering you a dream, that is simply too good to be true.

Auto Home Profits Sales Pitch by Shelly Davis

Auto Home Profits by Shelly Davis, is incredibly similar to a number of different scams out there. This is because it’s basically a cookie cutter site: a duplicate of another site, with some minor alterations.

The sales pitch for this system is full of red flags: items that should have you concerned. Some of these red flags are blatant lies while some merely twist the truth in psychological mind games.

Featured On News Sites

Auto Home Profits - featured on

This first flag is very much a psychological trick. The site shows some news corporation logos and states that work from home opportunities have been featured on them. This is true, but the reason it adds this is so you assume that this particular program has also been featured on these networks: which is not true.

Only 9 Positions Left

This amongst several other elements on the sales page is a scarcity tactic. By stating there’s limited numbers available the creators of the sales page are hoping you will rush and not think things through.

The Guaranteed Earnings

Straight up at the top of the page the sales copy states that this system is a guaranteed way to make money and that you can earn up to $379 per day.

Not only is this type of system unlikely to make you money (I’ll explain more about this shortly), but the sales page and the terms are very contradictory.

The sales page states:

by posting 15 links in 60 minutes a day…5 days a week…you can put $58,500 year-after-year into your bank account

Yet the terms clearly state that actually you’re more than likely not going to earn a penny:

Auto Home Profits - no guarantees

The Well Worn Video

Ahh I love this video. I see it and a couple of variations of it every day while hunting the internet to find scams to warn you about.

The video itself is a genuine news clip about working from home. It has absolutely nothing to do with this product, but just like the news company logos, it’s there to add a sense of legitimacy to the sales pitch.

The Sob Story

If you want to sell something you have to relate to your audience: that’s marketing 101. The best way to do this is via a story and like most internet marketing scams, Auto Home Profits uses a sob story, followed up by a rags to riches story.

How true is the story? That’s an unknown but it’s so generic yet so possible that this story and dozens like it are used continually, with just minor changes such as names.

Stories like this often strike a chord, I mean I know I’ve had financial troubles and I bet that if you are looking at a system like this to generate extra cash, you might be struggling too.

This is another psychological trick to get you in the mind-set that this system is the solution to your troubles.

The Fake Testimonials

If a system is so profitable and so successful, you’d think that people would be overjoyed to provide a testimonial and sing praise for the system from the rooftops.

Why is it then that the testimonials for Auto Home Profits all use stock photos and generic, untraceable names?

Sure you could say it’s to protect the identity of the reviewer, but then how can you prove the review is true?

I have no doubt in my mind that these testimonials are fake.

The Dream Lifestyle

The sob story sets a scene you may be familiar with, but elements of the sales pitch set a different scene altogether.

By using constant references to making hundreds a day and tens of thousands of dollars a year the sales pitch sets you up to desire the supposed rewards of this system.

It reinforces this with stock photos of working from the beach, big houses and fast cars.

Buy me, it says, and you too can live the dream. It’s a shame that this is BS.

The Desperate Companies

Auto Home Profits - desperate companies

My final point about the sales pitch is that it states that there are hundreds, thousands or more companies out there begging and desperate for you to help them and that they are willing to pay you handsomely in the process.

Sadly this is very misleading. Why, you ask? Well, that’s to do with what the system wants you to do…

Auto Home Profits is a Link Posting Scam

Link posting, in case you’re not sure, is a method of pasting links onto social media sites like Facebook, or in your favorite forums, or even in blog post comments.

In theory if someone clicks the link, you make money.

The way Auto Home Profits frames it, you get paid for just adding a link regardless of whether someone clicks it or not.

That’s false.

There are no companies out there paying, $30, $20, $10, or even $5 bucks for you to post a link. In fact if there are companies out there paying for people to post links, you’ll make maybe 5 cents a link.

At that rate, you’d need to post 1,170,000 links to make $58k in year.

Even then I think you’d be hard pressed to find a company paying anything for this.

This is because the links you post will be considered spam – and no legitimate company wants to be a part of that. If they don’t care, well then there’s software out there that costs a few hundred dollars that can automate the process for them, so why do they need you?

Now, forgetting all that, Auto Home Profit is likely focusing on something called affiliate marketing, which is a way to make commissions. As an example, you place a link to Amazon with your special affiliate tag, someone clicks it and buys something, and you make a small commission.

This is a valid and legitimate way to make money online!

Sadly, it just won’t work if you randomly post links and spam places. Really you need a website to provide value to a customer and soft sell them before they are likely to click your link.

The Bottom Line

Link posting schemes, like Auto Home Profits, just don’t work.

Even if you ignore the lies in the sales pitch about making easy money posting links, the affiliate marketing side of it will fail without proper training and support, something this sort of system does not provide.

I would recommend that you avoid Auto Home Profits and any other link posting scheme that you see online!

There's only ONE program I really recommend. It helped me turn my 'hobby' into a $10,000+ per month money making machine. Click here for the exact formula I followed.

    It is really awesome that you have posted a review of this scam of a website, I know that 6 months ago when I was researching how to make money online, I had no idea who to trust and where to look. I was lost. Luckily, I stumbled upon wealthy affiliate, and here we are.

    This “Auto Home Profits” uses very subtle yet manipulative wording and sentence structure to entice desperate people or even those who do not look too deeply into their purchases. It is sad that not only this site is out here doing this, but is also among thousands of others as well.

    It is very good that you outlined where and how this site scams people, showing your viewers what the tricks and wording are that people use to scam.
    This review is very informative and considerate, and I hope it helps people to make smart decisions about where and what they spend their money on.
    Best of luck to you!

  2. Hey Steve,

    I see you love it to write about scams and I also saw this one and the first thing coming up in mind was: I cannot imagine, that people fall for this one. Especially not when I saw the testimonials. Why not? Saw those faces before but with other names.

    So, in that case, I started thinking, how can I determine, if an opportunity is fake:

    1. They have very professional videos
    2. They have many testimonials with unreal faces
    3. Would I tell my friends about this website?
    4. They have a timer running with limited time left
    5. They have a special offer, also for a limited time
    6. They have some features appearing in the header with the words: “click here”

    Now tell me, why should I choose the platform, which you promote elsewhere on your website?

  3. Thank you for this review. Reviews like yours really help people from being scammed. I am always looking at ways to make extra money outside my normal work. Your review of Auto Home Profits has stopped me from potentially wasting a lot of money on a system that doesn’t work. Thank you very much.

      Glad to have been able to help Harjit!  Auto Home Profits is just one iteration of a scam that has many faces. Be on the look out for others.

  4. Wow! Such an honest, thorough review!

    You know, I’ve noticed those news logos on sites before, but I never even considered it possibly being scammy. I’ve always assumed the site’s product was featured. I’m hoping I wasn’t duped before!

    I definitely have fallen for the “X Positions Left!” line. Ugh. I found out about that trick when I got into online sales.

    The stock photos of “happy customers” are actually hilarious. What a big turn off.

    It’s sad how they twist affiliate marketing – a true way to make money online – into something so dishonest.

    Shelly Davis should be ashamed of herself.

    Thanks for your review, for exposing an unsavory business.

      “Shelly Davis” definitely does not exist. Like the product name and logos, they swap out a generic sounding name with each iteration. They try and make the names as common as possible to make it hard to do proper research. It’s a scam through and through.

  5. I, too, have seen many of these types of programs featured online and was so happy to see an honest, eye-opening review about this one! You are right– the stock photos and no testimonials from real-life people is a pretty good clue that something is not right. I have been searching for something to do online for several years now and was almost desperate enough to give something like this a try until I read your review! Thank you for saving me from yet another scam!

      A lot of the times these kinds of sites fake endorsements from big names in the news industry. They go as far as to create mock websites using these corporations format, logos, writers, editors etc. It’s amazing they haven’t been sued and legally forced to shut down.

  6. This review is awesome. I’ve never heard of the particular scam but I’ve seen others just like it. I’ve seen the video and the act fast because there are only so many left pitches. I’ve even had the links spammed on my blog. And you are right that is definitely not the way to go. Good work on exposing this company!

      Their entire method revolves around getting people hyped up to the point where they stop thinking rationally. They want you to feel like if you don’t ACT RIGHT NOW you will lose out on an opportunity to make millions overnight. Most of these things can be debunked by asking yourself “Is this too good to be true?”

  7. Hello Steve,

    Your review of the Auto-Home Profits is quite an eye opener. I know that there are a lot of scams, truths stretched, but this site is just blatant! It is all these scammers that give people reason to be untrusting about real deals online. I know a lot of people who don’t trust the internet.

    Thank you,

      Thanks Ed! The bad thing about scams like Auto Home Profits is that they are setting unrealistic expectations for people who do want to make money online. They see ads like this on how easy it is to generate hundreds of thousands of dollars online and expect that to be true.

      The sad reality is that these programs are just playing up to your emotions to rob you of your money. Building a real business takes time and effort. You have to spend time learning the ins and outs of setting one up before you can even begin. Overnight windfalls of cash are only possible if you play the lottery.
