Auto Emulate Live, Why I like the Idea in General But Not the Product.

Written by Curt Crowley

I was so looking forward to the launch of Auto Emulate (Launching July 11th, 2017) because I know what seeding a crowd can do for you, making it appear larger than it really is.  The appeal is this, if you saw a video that appears to have 4,000-ish viewers watching, you would want to know why and watch yourself!  The idea is great but their proof leaves a lot to be desired!  This type of Marketing Tactic is call FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), Internet Marketers use it all the time, sometimes it is in the form of true scarcity timers, limited quantities, etc. other times not so much truth in marketing!

I pulled the proof from their own JV page ( http://autoemulate.live/jv/ ), the first image is about Whalleys Carpet Studio.  Just off hand… looking those are pretty good stats, I felt excited!  Let’s look closer at the image, they are running a contest and the very first requirement to enter the contest is to share it (See yellow highlighted area in image below) They are telling people to enter they Must “Share This Post” to enter the contest…..That right there will get you banned from Facebook as it is against their TOS!  The reason it is banned is…well it works very well and defeats the FB Ads to spread the word! LOL! The question is, “Are you willing to risk your reputation and Your Precious FB accounts on this blatant TOS breaking tactic?”
(The image is linked to the contest to see for yourself.)

How do I know it is against FB TOS?

What do the Facebook Page Guidelines say?

“Promotions may be administered on Pages or within apps on Facebook. Personal Timelines and friend connections must not be used to administer promotions (ex: “share on your Timeline to enter” or “share on your friend’s Timeline to get additional entries”, and “tag your friends in this post to enter” are not permitted).” https://www.facebook.com/page_guidelines.php

Translation: Page owners can encourage users to share the contest & come vote — by Liking their comment on a contest — but sharing cannot be a form of entering the contest.

Here is their second example of their success:

Exact same thing violation of FB TOS requiring a share to enter the contest. 

With both of their proofs being “Share to Enter Contests”, I would beg to differ on the reason why things went viral for these two video is NOT the fake views, but rather the Terms Of Service  Breaking “Share the contest to enter” requirement!  With these two proof of concept (the only proof on the JV Page) I would have to say this is a No Go!

I tried emailing them about this and to ask questions via the email on their JV page, but alas it could not be delivered:

I would not recommend purchasing as they failed to provide proof without using TOS Breaking tactics, their proof is unreliable at best.
