Auto Commission Bot

Profile picture of the author neodarth by neodarth Posted: 11/11/2010
Yet another massive mail from the known names affiliate, this Auto Commission Bot looks just like all the recent launches. A Blind sales letter and all the typical red flags.

This is a software from Michael Pieterson (some said that Ian Ross is behind) any thoughts on this one?

Here is the link Auto Commission Bot (by any means affiliate)

    Still trying to find a decent traffic generation product to mail to my list and, as I still had some 'review budget' left I bought Auto Commission Bot ($67,00).

    Sometimes you have to over look the hype to find some rare gems (yes... it happened before).

    However...

    The first red alert that I found is that is not a Clickbank product (it's managed by Plimus and is a pain in the a** to ask for a refund on plimus)

    When you buy there are 3 upsells.

    first a software upgrade to mobile apps (didn't take it)

    second, for the description made seems to be a suscription to Affiliate X but I might be mistaken.

    third a complete video training

    and in the download page there are 6 'bonuses' (actually they are affiliate banners to other products.

    Now the revealing moment... what is Auto commision Bot?... well... I HAVE NO IDEA!

    Seriously there is no manual, documentation, instructions, guide, blueprint, picture, hint, clue or whatever that tells you what it is, what it does, or how to use it.

    There is however a 'Initial setup where you find some info about mindset and double optin and a system but no tangible info on what is the software...

    You just stare the screen wondering what to do and avoiding the reflexion of your own stupid face in the monitor thinking 'why oh why I didn't listen to that little voice in the back of my head warning me of such blatant stupidity!' (to be fair is the same voice that tells me to burn down my ex-boss's house so I tried no to listen too often)

    I navigate through the so call modules or whatever and there is no intuitive navigation. There is a live training on how to start up on november 15th...

    It seems that the third upsell is necesary to use the product... but I didn't read the small print where it says 'instructions sold separately, batteries are not included' :confused:

    I don't know how awesome or how aweful it is, but there is only one chance to get a first imppression and in my humble opinion they blew it.

    Is up to you if you want to stick around or as me run like hell and cry out loud for a refund (Yeah! I want my money back!), there is no way in hell that I promote this to my list, period.

    I've bought (in the recent past even) some software that comes with no manual or instructions. They were all pretty focused on one single function and pretty simple to figure out.

    If this software is complex and, worse, if the manual is a upsell (!?) that would be a quite insane task to learn how to use it.

    Update: OK I get a response... they send me a link to a User's guide...

    Now I'm a little more clue on what this ACB is all about... and I put emphasys in the "little"...

    You have a free website... that is actually a MU wordpress blog on a .info domain (??)

    You have some plugins, some are working, some don't... when you click on the main plugin that I'm assuming is the "software" you have this message...

    "Auto Commission Bot Is Coming!…

    Auto Commission Bot takes the guesswork out of getting started, gives you solid instructions that are step by step and simple to follow. The Future Is Now! … Read More Dismiss"

    The traffic generation apparently is not automatic because they give you some tips on how to drive traffic to your new site... and the whole "auto" part is because you can replicate process of a system with a few tasks.

    I'm still thinking is a bad idea... still... I'll give these guys a week (until the first training) to prove me wrong.



    Note to myself: "if looks like BS, smell like BS, feels like BS, taste like BS... is because it is BS!"

    Hi neodarth,

    I (and I am sure so many, many others) have been sucked in by half-baked bot software that is either unfinished or non-functional.

    Have you determined if the "charming" Mr Ross is behind this yet? If so, I would run, not walk to get my money back.

    I was silly enough to get the horrendous Turbo Profit Sniper a while back...it never worked and now appears to have been completely abandoned...

    I know! Turbo Profit Sniper was a major disaster for many people who bought it, I have one sale however (or I assuming it was thanks to TPS because it was the only sale with no tracking ID), but yeah... that was it no more sales, no more info about it, nothing.

    I'm still trying to investigate if mr. Ross has something to do with this.

    you might find it ironic but as a buyer I been asking the very same question you did.

    But. By the rough guide they sent me, seems that the main source of traffic is SEO.

    There is a mention on free classified ads, blogging, social media. I really can't tell you. Perhaps some other user might unlock the secret behind this?

    Hi Alfresco

    That would be interesting to find out if it's the same cartel.

    If so, we agree with you - start running and keep running.

    Regards

    UPDATE: I created a site and gives me a fatal error (memory error) and the path that shows me where my site was attemped to be created is /home/ianross/public_html/......

    So mr. Ross IS behind this (or is loaning his hosting account) The decision is yours I held no responsability for your actions.

    Eeeeeeww....yet another product with the words 'auto' & 'bot'.

    Its always the same. Same tired promises, same lame software, and they neglect to tell you that you really have to buy the upsell if its gonna work for you.

    I think i'm, just gonna unsubscribe from anyone who promotes this crap to me. I'm fed up of these crappy clickbank launches.

    Wait, so 1 hand, they attack SEO...social media and other stuff they claim other gurus promote which he claims is complete crap, yet in reality...its the exact same thing he's teaching.

    Theonly people who fall for these crappy products are newbies. In a few weeks, we'll have yet another auto bot software which promises this same thing.

    Exactly, that's why is so important the WF. To put a word of warning to the newbies about this kind of products... but sometimes somebody has to cross the road to see if is safe...

    Hi neodarth,
    Thanks so much for your review. I must say that my immediate reaction these days when the next wave of impossible claims floods into my inbox, is to come to the Warrior forum and read really useful reviews such as yours (which made me laugh out loud too - double the fun!).

    Hi Neodarth
    I had a look at there presentation as well and claiming 100,000 per month was a bit hard to take, so as normal I come to Warrior Forum to find out what is happening.
    Many thanks

    This is a complete joke and leaves a real sour taste in my mouth.

    I ordered yesterday and like the gentlemen above, could not figure
    out what the heck it does.

    Since then, I have been trying to get a refund. I get emails like ...
    "Did you read the manual on so & so page?"

    When you look at the supposed "manual", it tells you nothing.

    Then I get emails from them saying that they will be uploading
    videos over the weekend that were really for the saps that bought
    the upsell.

    What is that all about?

    When you buy a product, I think the least you can expect is some
    instruction on to how to operate it.

    If I sound sour, it's because I am.

    This will be the last time I buy from a sales page like that.

    Rots of ruck!

    Thanks for the review/rant neodarth. I've got to agree with Mored, virtually every email I seem to get these days is some software claiming to offer me the impossible, so I too rush here to the WF to find out that it actually is impossible.

    Thanks once again neodarth, for crossing that road for us.

    Neodarth! I was just about to hit the purchase button when the words "Warrior Forum" flashed in my mind. Thank you so much for your intuitive scepticism. You have saved many of us from probably losing $67, but more importantly, you have prevented the frustration, disappointment, waste of time and the inevitable "how could I have been sucked in yet again" syndrome.

    With appreciation,
    Veronica

    Hey, I just wanted to put in my two cents. I bought the program, curious as to what it might be. I will have to admit that I'm an impulse buyer in remission. I've since asked for a refund and am finding the same problems that others have already posted. I think it's interesting how many people, even the "super affiliates", say "No Questions Asked" refund policy and then as soon as you submit a refund request, they send you an email that says, "Don't you want to try it out? Why don't you stay? Did you read the manual?" What kind of dishonorable people are these? They can't even fulfill on their "guarantee"?! I've become so upset with all these people selling courses that are marked up to be fantastic and all it is is another course telling me to go on ezinearticles, and use all of the PLR articles that they give you to drive traffic. Pathetic. I echo the comment earlier that I'm about to unsubscribe from all of these people who promote this garbage. Anyway, I hope all of you who have a list aren't shy in sharing your opinions about these programs, instead of always just promoting, let's start protecting.

    Just watched the video on the sales page. Typical of all these types of offers - NO DETAIL! No explanation of what it IS.. plenty on what 'supposedly' it's NOT..

    If they don't show you at least a screen shot of the thing, and explain what it really does, I immediately run away.

    If you try to leave the page, there's an optin for some 'Elite Traffic' thing for free if you give them your email. I did, just to see, and it was a PDF - AffililateX!!!! This whole thing screams 'RUN AWAY'!

    Thanks to those who post their reviews.. it really helps everyone who has the nouse to check in here first and read what others think. No-one can afford to waste either the time or the money on false promises.

    Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, IT ALMOST ALWAYS IS!

    Thanks for the review, neodarth. I agree with the above statements about checking here first... In this case, it saved me from even watching their nearly 10 minute video.
