|Can You Really Make Money Online On Autopilot? by baba2know: 12:39pm On Feb 06, 2018|
The word autopilot is primarily used in the aviation industry to refer to a system that is used to control the flight of an aircraft without the frequent hands-on control of the pilot.
The word has been borrowed by different sections of the society to mean a lot of things. However, autopilot in online business simply refers to the system of automating a business so that it generates money for you with little or no supervision at all.
The biggest question that has been repeatedly asked is if this is possible. My answer is “yes.” However, the problem remains in identifying what it means for an online business to operate on autopilot.
Consequently, I shall deal with the myth around this strategy and counter it with facts. This should clear any misconception around the subject of earning money on autopilot.
The myth and the fact
Myth: Autopilot means you don’t have to invest any effort in the business model. Just follow the process contained in the instructions you were given and set up the autopilot system. Once you do that, you will start earning money forever.
Fact: Autopilot may mean little or no effort but not at the beginning. Starting anything that is worthwhile often requires efforts. In fact, many believe that it is more difficult to get a business running than keep it running. If you want to have an autopilot system, it is possible but you may need to put in efforts at the beginning till the business can run without you. This is realistic compared to the myth people have.
When you invest your time and efforts into it, you can then expect it to start generating money for you. It’s not magic; it’s having a smart business sense. A lot of companies adopt this approach in their marketing strategy.
How much time is required at the beginning?
The amount of time you need to automate an online business depends on the knowledge of the business you have and the nature of the business. Some businesses may take up to two months to set up after which they can start earning with little supervision. The two months doesn’t necessarily mean working 24 hours each day; it may mean dedicating 2 hours a day to set up the autopilot system.
What kind of online business can you automate?
There are several online businesses that you set to autopilot mode. One of them is freelancing. Quite a number of Nigerians are aware of this. It’s commonly called “Fiverr arbitrage”. Using this model, you simply receive orders on your gig at a certain price and then hand it over to sellers on Fiverr to execute it for a lower price. You don’t get to do any work (except you choose to) but you get to earn because you have orders streaming in. The whole process is a “rinse and repeat” system.
The best online business that can fetch you money on autopilot is affiliate marketing. In a nutshell, when you promote the products of companies, you get paid a commission for the sales you generate. As I earlier explained, you can automate this business after doing the ground work. Once you’ve done this, you can sit back and watch your earnings rise based on the efforts you have made at the beginning.
For instance, if you use your affiliate link on products on a blog, you can be assured that even if you don’t visit the blog again, your link is still there and the readers will always see it whenever they visit the blog. That way, you can still earn money 3 months after you did the initial work on the blog because your post (in which the affiliate link was inserted) is still relevant and helpful to people. There are tons of information I’ve shared in previous blog posts.
It’s the same method even if you use YouTube. Your videos remain there and continue to generate views and ultimately income for you.
BENEFITS OF MAKING MONEY ON AUTOPILOT
1. Work during your own hours When you start our own online business, you can choose when to work. Some people prefer to work during the night (myself included) while some prefer to work during the day. The working hours do not really count provided you do what needs to be done.

Thanks op! I love this topic.
But a lot of people are very impatient with online businesses. They start and get fed up with little income that trickles in at first.
We need to understand it's a business and needs to be nurtured until it attains a height where it can spin the big chunk you expect(only if you believe).
If we can endure to do a government job for 35years? What stops from growing your "online business and in 2-3months you've mastered the art and can now watch it work?
Even after this effort here by op many will still walk away...........
Goodevening business minds.

Lot's of it but It'll still require the same kind of effort like blogging and fiverr.
But if you have the funds ( at least 10k for a start) and you're ready to learn, do trial and error too, you can start with domain flipping.
There are about three threads on it on nairaland

All these Mods that push threads anyhow to FP. How far na, This title is very misleading....
Op what do you mean by autopilot? Without tagging it with an Online Model...
You just say make money on autopilot without attaching a particular Online model, like it just happens like that.!?? .. How e be you?
And no am not asking you what it means because i don't know its meaning myelf.. Real online webmasters here should know the message am trying to pass by..
The word Autopilot is just an adjective or is it a Noun? (bla bla bla, English students help us ) used to describe the system of automating things(an aspect of a well known online model- Email marketing) you make money with, whereby you dont have to do any work on your path once the whole system is set up..
The system we talking about here is known as Email marketing..(Promoting a product or service via email)
With this system, you can promote anything in this world you can think of.. But most times, the popular things promoted are digital products..
Everything here entails, you get an email autoresponder software, make a list, create a sign up form, set up your email sequence, for following up your signed up subscribers on your list and boom load youw gun(followup messages) . .. And concurrently, in every message you send, your subscribers will get to be seeing the stuff you are promoting (which should be about the product/service you are selling)be it whatever... and hence take action, and you make money.....!!! simple..
On your autoresponder software, You could create as many lists you want cut across different niches meaning you can segment your subscribers list according to categories of things you are promoting.. And promote all and make your money.. The process of setting things up once and being able to load your email messages in your preferential sequence for how long you want it to run(even up to a year ) is what makes everything called "Autopilot".. Because if you can do that once, you don't have to do anything again.. You get?
So, Again, the whole process involves a one time setup, your squeeze page, sign up form to your list and series of messages lined up to be sent to your subscribers(this function here is the major thing why the whole system is labelled Autopilot). Shikena..
And why exactly is the whole email marketing system very effective system? Well this one na another talk on its own.. I don't have that strength for now.. See as i even the speak grammar like say na project I de defend..
My friend go and your research
Once a subscribers signs up to any of your list in your autoresponder the subscriber starts receiving your email messages.. Also known as follow up sequence.. And na their, making money journey starts.....
Okay enough said, no be tutorial be this..
So OP You guys should not just be misleading unknowing people with attractive words like this, Autopilot is just a word used when talking about the system of email marketing..
If you must talk, talk about it all.. Talk about the system.
Making money online on autopilot runs with a system, and most of, if not all times - that system is Email Marketing..
And with email marketing, you can then make money with anything sellable in this Planet.. Translating, to the whole concept of making money online...
You must have heard about this phrase -
The MONEY is in the List! Yes it truly is. And thats the best kept MMO secret. Cop dat.
