Automatic Edge presents itself as a work from home, internet-based business. However, they are very secretive, and there is little information online about the company and their products. Lack of information makes it difficult to evaluate them. However, after substantial digging, I found a disturbing pattern you need to be aware of if you are considering Automatic Edge.
Product Name: The “Automatic Edge” Attraction Marketing System.
Website URL: theautomaticedge.com
Price: $97, plus many expensive upsells.
Opinion: Not Recommended
What Is Automatic Edge?
Automatic Edge presents itself as a work from home opportunity. However, in a complaint registered with the West Florida Better Business Bureau, Greg L. describes Automatic Edge as;
“. . . a ploy to get people to pay thousands of dollars on a hyped up training program . . .”
Automatic Edge makes it difficult to figure out what exactly they are offering other than some pie in the sky dream of making lots of money.
However, I did see a pattern with Automatic Edge that is similar to scams I have uncovered in the past. The pattern is nearly identical to Countdown to Profits.
The Automatic Edge Homepage.
The Automatic Edge Homepage is misleading.
The deception begins at the top of the homepage where you see the impressive icons for CNNMoney, SkyNews, Financial Times, and Bloomberg Businessweek.
Those financial news outlets have nothing to do with Automatic Edge. Automatic Edge is not endorsed by these companies and it has never been featured by any of these business programs.
Using the icons of these reputable financial news companies is an attempt to convince you that Automatic Edge has an association with these businesses and is also reputable. This is deliberate deception.
In other words, the secretive people behind Automatic Edge are trying to convince you that their program does the work for you. Do you believe that?
After they have convinced you of how easy their Automatic Edge System is, they drop a few numbers to excite your greed. They mention a “Wealth Accelerator” program and how it’s by invitation only. What a crock.
Then they casually mention making $3,000 to $5,000 a week Do you believe that?
The Automatic Edge Coaches.
In the middle of the Automatic Edge homepage, there is a big green bar. This bar gives the impression that if you join Automatic Edge you will get a coach who will help you make money. Usually, in these kinds of operations, the so-called “coach” is nothing more than a telemarketer with a script.
The coach/telemarketer knows just enough about online marketing to sound convincing to someone who doesn’t know anything at all.
The job of the coach is to keep you greedy for what Automatic Edge is selling and then talk you into buying a more expensive level with another coach/telemarketer who sells you yet another more expensive level.
Automatic Edge appears to have 21 levels or steps. Each level is more expensive than the last. The coaches/telemarketers will keep pushing you to buy higher, more expensive levels until your credit card is maxed out.
Everything about the Automatic Edge homepage is designed to make you feel greedy for what they’re offering without revealing what it is.
Every copywriter knows if they can make you feel greedy for something, they have you hooked.
The Automatic Edge homepage is designed to hook you into the dream of making lots of money. If you buy into this dream, the coaches/telemarketers at Automatic Edge will scam you until your credit card bleeds.
The Automatic Edge Reviews.
I found two Automatic Edge video reviews. One was by Grandpa Martin, and one was from Sheryl Reviews. Both had nothing but good things to say about Automatic Edge, although in each video they appeared to read from a script. Their Automatic Edge review video is the only video on their channel.
Let’s take a closer look at Grandpa Martin. Here he is singing the praises of Automatic Edge.
And here is Grandpa Martin on Fiverr. He’s a Top Seller named OldManSteve. For five bucks he’ll make a video promoting anything you want.
Automatic Edge and the BBB.
Automatic Edge is not accredited with the BBB. However, the West Florida Better Business Bureau still gives Automatic Edge a big fat F.
Automatic Edge Complaints.
Below is an excerpt of a complaint registered with the West Florida BBB by Greg L. In this complaint, we see mention of a 21 step program and how you are sold higher steps or levels.
“The Automatic Edge is advertised as a work from home, internet based business that guarantees a certain income or your money back. The problem is, they do not elaborate on this guarantee until after you pay the $97 fee to begin a 21 step program. After only 6 steps you learn that you have to complete all 21 steps, which includes paying thousands more to actually start using their program . . .”
What is Automatic Edge Really?
It appears to me that Automatic Edge is a cloaking website for a multi-level marketing company called My Online Business Empire, otherwise known at MOBE. It is also known by the names My Top Tier Business and My Online Business Education.
MOBE is based out of Malaysia and owned by Matt Lloyd.
People buy into MOBE at what first appears to be a reasonable price, but quickly realize they must buy higher levels if they want to earn larger commissions. While MOBE claims you can build an online business around any niche you want, the truth is, MOBE is set up to sell MOBE.
As a member of MOBE, you will be encouraged to introduce your friends, family and everyone you know to MOBE telemarketers who will then try to sell them for you.
The people who succeed with MOBE are the people who sell it. And, make no mistake, it takes extraordinary marketing skills to sell the high-end MOBE products that cost tens of thousands of dollars.
MOBE is not for newbies. MOBE chews up newbies and spits out them out broke. If you introduce your friends to MOBE, you will be contributing and possibly profiting from their financial ruin.
The last word: Is Automatic Edge a Scam?
A legitimate business will not hide behind other names and websites. A legitimate business is very clear about what it is offering and how much it costs.
Automatic Edge is deceptive and deception is the primary tool of a scammer. Would you risk your money with an organization you can’t trust?
As Greg L. pointed out in his complaint, you don’t know what Automatic Edge is until you spend your money and are deep into their scam.
A Better Way.
The truth is, building an online business is not complicated, and it’s not expensive to learn either.
If you would like to try a legitimate training program for free and learn how to build a profitable online business, the place to begin is the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course.
