After taking into account products costs, shipping, Amazon commission, FBA fee’s, ad costs, logo design, label design, domain and hosting fee’s, legal fee’s etc you are doing well if you can make $10 net profit per sale
There are people who have gone full speed ahead and invested in the thousands to fulfill the course recommendations, only to find that their product is sitting in Amazon warehouses, with little to no sales. Yes, overpriced
If what Matt and Jadon offered is overpriced and not worth any investment at all, and suppose it does not work, why do we not see all the previously purchased members (with the exception of 1 or 2) posting their negative feedback here?
Joe, you should know that whatever business you put up, online or offline, it’s going to take work to make it successful. Most people don’t care about importing, what we’re really talking about is making money. Plain and simple.
As for me, forget all the middle people. I am planning a trip to China to go to the next big FAIR. Good products over that never see American daylight, ripe for picking. That’s just me and that tip’s free. 🙂
ASM is pretty fantastic tbh. It’s a fully-comprehensive ‘how to’ kit. I’ve been selling successfully on Amazon for a number of years now but i often dig back into my ASM vid archives every now and then for a refresher. Worth the investment for sure – if you are willing to take action of course.
While a $3500-$4000 at first glance has the sticker shock. Short term it’s more than any any other course, but long term the fact it could change your life long term in ways you never thought, I don’t think you can put a price on that.
4. Before starting any business, do your due diligence. This is important – I reviewed a lot of programs and settled for ASM as I have a couple of friends who are using it ‘successfully’ (5 figure dollar turnover a month with around 45% margin after less than 6 months).
This Security Workshop provides participants with an opportunity to experiment with many of the different components of F5’s security solutions in a hands-on lab environment using a real-world application delivery deployment scenario. The goal of the course is to put to practical use the extensive capabilities of the BIG-IP system to safeguard application delivery in today’s growing threat landscape, and to help the audience think differently about application security.
And the customer complaint that I put up in this review within 1 hour of research on the ASM, shows her frustration with the Amazing Selling Machine and that she was taken advantage of by ASM’s marketing tactics.
So back to last time, it was 60 day refund policy and my guess is they got enough refunds so this time around they said hey we have to grab as much money as possible so lets make the refund policy less time then what it takes to really get the entire product this way by the time people see the entire course and come to the conclusion that its not worth $4k its to late for a refund.
Ryan? I’m just encouraging him to continue, and it’s working. (Hm, maybe the huffy puffy remarks are just self-reflective here)…anyhoo, carry on folks, continue. I’m all ears. Really. I’m right here, all my time is 100% watching your remarks today…
Next will come releasing your item. This is where there have actually been significant modifications in the last year. Amazon is a lot more strict about giving away products in exchange for reviews. Nevertheless, the most current launch methods will be covered in depth so you do not need to count on out-of-date information that could potentially harm your Amazon Seller Central account.
My thoughts to Ryan David? I don’t blame you at all for being skeptical, I was too and I would say that most Internet Marketing offered are complete scams. But I know from my own experience that Jim Cockrum and Jordan Malik too for that matter are the real deal because I have interacted with them both.
They also seem to have software tools that are rolled in, which give the impression that they are spammy backlinking tools that they are throwing at Amazon because http://thenextdaily.com/news/amazing-selling-machine-course-evergreen-launch-2018-start-an-ecommerce-business/0045744/ really hard to have a negative SEO effect on Amazon.

I agree with some of what you are saying, which IS structured in the ASM area, and I quote “If you follow a cookie cutter system, then you’ll be lumped in there with the rest of those guys selling sleep masks and crystal balls. You might not even try to do something because you’ve been told that it’s impossible!” I agree with this statement.
My best products have margins in the 45-50% range and when I define gross margins, I’m talking about taking the NET proceeds from Amazon for each unit sold, subtracting the all-in per unit cost, and coming up with the gross margin dollars. Take that gross margin $ and divide by the NET proceed from Amazon and you come up with 45-50%. I will say though, that those particular products require me to be spending 40K per shipment. But that’s why able to make 45-50% on it; because other people won’t do it.

Bit of a coincidence I came across this, as I happened to come across ASM a few days back and wondered what it was like. I’m not currently in a position to pay for this programme, but I do think it sounds great!
ASM 378 – Machinery Principles and Management – 3.00 credits: Principles of agricultural machinery manufacture, sales, operation, and management. Topics include selection, replacement, operation, application, and maintenance. 2 lectures, 1 three-hour laboratory. Prereq: MATH 103 or 104.
A guy who drove an old Ford pickup his whole life figured out this stuff long ago…importing cheap goods and selling for a higher price. He opened thousands of stores. I should be able to figure out how to get a few products stocked and listed on Amazon. I’ve done extremely well in the past selling on eBay. FBA may have a few technical hurdles, but nothing anything a halfway intelligent person can’t figure out pretty quickly.
Maybe not skin but certainly time invested, Ryan. Every precious minute (no, hours) you invest in this is a victory for me. Click on the youtube button to the left and find more of my videos for you to critique, please (this is all the same topic, nothing’s changed!). As I cheerfully invest mere seconds in responding to you, continue investing (cumulatively) hours in viewing, poking holes and responding! Go ahead (*Everyone* is watching us here), make it go viral!

We are so happy we jumped in and started an Amazon Physical Products Business 2 years ago. It has allowed us to recently purchase an RV to travel around with our kiddos (while we are still cool to the…m!), meet and coach new Amazon sellers as well as form an amazing community of like-minded people. I couldn’t have done it without taking this course. It’s not easy and there are pitfalls (just like any other business), however, it’s very rewarding and fits our lifestyle 🙂 See More
Amazon is the Google of physical products. The amount of opportunity is crazy; considering Matt and Jason have cracked the code and successfully make money with them is very impressive and should be a real eye opener to anyone looking to succeed with ecommerce. It’s a billion dollar industry. Businesses take investment, and time is money, so why not buy from those with a proven record versus floundering on the search engine or alibaba all night (have you tried it, it’s horrible)? Equivalent to buying someone’s autobiography – you get a man’s life work for a fee, but what you get in return is much greater and will multiply in time.
I’m surprised it hasn’t been clear to you as I’ve said it before. Similar to the same way I felt about Jordan Malik’s interactions in this thread, I personally believe you haven’t been honest for the sole purpose of making money for yourself. As an example, you continue to deny that you’re been pitching your services under the guise of educating people, but your videos go right into a pitch for your own alternative course and you’re using this thread as a vehicle for free advertising.

– took 3 months in total and delivery was good they emailed me a picture of my products from the fullfillment centre to make sure they were mine coming in and about 3 days later the stock was showing on my seller panel

CleanTAS 201 : How To Protect Your Listing from Hijackers and FIGHT BACK with Jon Haver One of the most frustrating issues sellers run into on the Amazon platform is when they get some success under their belts with a great product and then wake up one morning to find that someone has hijacked the Amazon listing where they sold their prod. 5/11/2016 Free View in iTunes
Well, not too long ago Amazon finally created the technology to create what are known as “one time” coupon codes. Only one problem with that – you had to create them and hand them out manually to each customer.
I’d be curious to see what ASM customers have thought so far. Hopefully the people that joined that course didn’t spend their last few bucks signing up, because I’m seeing more and more people have CASH be their limiting factor when it comes to Amazon. I’m not saying you need THAT much money in order to make private labeling work, but you need to be able to order enough to where the shipping cost in from China doesn’t eat you alive.
