What’s up guys and gals!
I hope yall are having an awesome, fantastic day full of work and grinding, and you’re ready for a dose of hardcore, straightforward, honest reviews.
Today, I’ll be going through AutoViral by Jai Sharma and Pedro Lopes. They’ve made some pretty clickbaity sales claims on their page – they say that complete newbies are making $2k-5k every month using this strategy. They also say that this is the “World’s No #1 Fresh Viral Content Curation Engine to Make You Passive Income On 100% AUTOPILOT.” They claim that using this method you’ll be able to generate and monetize viral traffic in an effortless manner. They also say that with this evergreen 100% set and forget system, you’ll be able to enjoy evergreen passive profits.
Nothing we haven’t heard before – let’s see if Jai Sharma and Pedro Lopes are able to deliver some quality internet marketing training to back up their sales claims.
Before we get into the review, I want you to know that every review I type from this 6-year-old Logitech K260 keyboard is with your best interests at heart. My job is to write real, honest, integral, and authentic reviews that entertain you guys with my awesome writing skills (at least that’s what my mom says), and educate you on the sea of crappy internet marketing training there is on the web. If I ever come across an awesome product, I’ll let you know about it, and you can decide for yourself whether you’d like to purchase it or not. No reviews here are ever swayed by a potential, juicy, fat commission.
Now, let’s move onto the review.
The way of making money using AutoViral is fascinating – it’s practically spinning Viral Content that they’ve found from their snazzy little software, creating a website around it as well as a facebook page, then monetizing it off of ad revenue and affiliate links throughout the site. The reason why I wouldn’t recommend this product, however, is because they’ve promoted a relatively “spammy” way to get the website out there, and the sales claims are misaligned as heck – it’s definitely not a set-and-forget system that requires little effort, and I’m 99% sure you’re not going to be able to “Enter and dominate ANY niche – real results in 7 days or less!” like the sales page says so.
Your time and money are better invested elsewhere.
After purchasing the product, I was met with a total of 3 upsells that looked like just a few add-on products. Generally, with upsells like these, they’re not really necessary for your success. It’s funny; it’s like you purchase the initial product to make money online, and then 5 seconds later they’re trying to sell you something that’s meant to do exactly the same thing – make money online.
I skipped past the upsells and logged into their membership site that looks a little something like this.
I dug right into the training and noticed a few things about Jai and Pedro’s AutoViral product.
It’s the first time I’ve reviewed a product like this, or came across a product that uses this type of system. Essentially, they tell you to set up a site (which they have provided training for) and integrate a few social media platforms to the site. The training they’ve given to set up the site isn’t really in-depth, but it’s not crappy either. It’s in the middle – I’d say a solid 6/10.
They then advise you to create a few social fan pages so you can start promoting the viral content that they’ve supplied using their handy-dandy AutoViral software.
You can sort the content by category which makes things a lot easier, especially if your business was going to be built around something specific such as weight loss.
After selecting the Viral Content that you want to use, they then essentially say “post this on your social media pages and website, and do some promotion” blah blah blah. The way they advise you to make money is through ad revenue (hosting ads on your site) and affiliate links throughout the content.
The strategy they teach is really interesting and foreign to me. However, after proper analysis of the training and the method, I can safely say that I wouldn’t recommend this product to you guys and gals because of the following reasons.
As you probably already know, a successful business requires a constant flow of traffic that hopefully you have a sales funnel ready to funnel the leads down and convert into buyers. Obviously, the viral/clickbait content that they use is going to help with this since people are really drawn to headlines such as John Carlton’s famous golfing headline, “Amazing Secret Discovered By One-Legged Golfer Adds 50 Yards To Your Drives, Eliminates Hooks and Slices… And Can Slash Up To 10 Strokes From Your Game Almost Overnight!”
But, I’m 99% sure just posting a bunch of clickbait content isn’t enough to create a successful business (at least, in the beginning year or two). With that taken into account, you’re going to need to use other ways to grow your business and get some traction going. Unfortunately, one of the ways they recommend is to join FB groups and post your viral content there.
Pedro even says in the video training that you’re actually adding value to people using this method because you’re sharing valuable content. It made me think of a couple of things:
The other strategy they recommend is to invite your friends to like your FB page.
I’m 99% sure this technique doesn’t work at all; the amount of times I’ve seen friends invite me to like their FB page is crazy. It’s because people generally think that the only things that matter is quantity. If you have lots of subscribers/followers, you must be going places! Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. They’re forgetting the other side of the coin which is quantity – does the person that you’re inviting even like/is interested in your business in the first place?
Quick story – my friend created a crappy looking blog with some new health stuff on it. He posted it on his Facebook page, tried to get everyone to look at it and check it out and all that jazz. He created an event on FB saying he was hosting a webinar where he invited over 500 people to join. Guess how many people clicked the “attend” button?
A whopping, outrageous, record-breaking 3 people. And one of those people was his mum
The other reason I wouldn’t recommend this product is because it definitely isn’t a way that you’re going to make thousands of dollars in a short amount of time like the sales page says so.
It’s not a “get-rich-quick method”, and it’s not a “set-and-forget system.” Just a bunch of overpromoising, overrealistic sales claims that lures customers in and doesn’t deliver on quality of training or a quality, long-term system either.
The strategy was really interesting and foreign, which is why I’m giving this a C+. But other than that, the training is pretty average, the strategies they recommmend are pretty spammy, and it’s not a longterm, fundamentally sound appraoch to creating an online business that supports you and the bills you gotta pay whilst pumping value you to your clients.
Your money and time are better invested elsewhere.
