ASM criteria by far the most important aspect of an entire course as this secret formula will open your eyes on how much money people are actually making on Amazon (you will be shocked) and you will clearly see where is the opportunity for you to get in and start selling a lot right from the start.
I read a review by Jordan Malik on his blog and viewed some of his YouTube videos. He, an experienced Amazon seller, tells you why he doesn’t support the ASM hype, why he considers it grossly overpriced, and also points you to far cheaper alternatives to ASM. There are several books on Amazon on Private Labelling; according to Malik private-labelling is not without risk.
@Raam Dust – You’re right. Amazon do have rules in place because they don’t want solicitation from outside sources to ruin the buyers experience or abuse the system. If they receive too many complaints, they will shut you down.
The 2nd video (covering the ASM alternatives) makes it crystal-clear that yes, there are affiliate links in there, and although they are affiliate links, I am personally refunding folks who purchase the courses/books mentioned if the original publisher’s guarantee expires. (In other words, some courses/e-books I mention have a 30-day money back guarantee. If the buyer wants a refund on (say) day 186, and they purchased it via my affiliate link, they can contact me directly and I will refund them out of my own pocket, no questions asked (they do have to show proof they actually bought it.) No other affiliate (to my knowledge) does that. Some angry folks (like, 1% of all the responses) missed all that.
Realistically though, there probably aren’t that many people that are “making it” because there aren’t that many people that succeed (on a % basis) with any program. Private labeling products isn’t something that you can really bootstrap very easily. When I import from China, I’m spending about $40-50K per container. You have to be able to float the cash for a minimum 60-90 days before you start to see the payback.
Sponsored Ads “Stealth Method” Ben uses this technique to virtually GUARANTEE that his Sponsored Ads Campaigns are profitable, when he launches new products. (It’s NOT what you think, and you’ve never heard this technique before).
3) As an add on to the forum (and facebook group), they have weekly webinars that go over that weeks worth of content where you can ask questions about what you are learning. They are recorded if you can’t make it.
I have never seen a guarantee quite like this one as Matt and Jason want you to give the system a try totally risk free. I don’t say this often, but it really does appear that you have nothing to lose by giving ASM a shot. If in the end it doesn’t work out after 6 months, you’re out only the time invested.

This is your chance to learn as the guys jump into another Hot Seat session. On this episode, they cover the 10x10x1 strategy, if it’s ok to launch a product with less than ten sal ……
Sales of 50 units per day (1,500/month) is probably a much more achievable goal for the average person, and with a $25 product / 40% margin, you’d be generating $15k profit per month in profit. Still not too bad.
In a nutshell, ASM teaches its members how to successfully drop-ship items via Amazon. That’s it. This revenue model is not exactly new; in fact, I mentioned online drop-shipping as a semi-viable work-at-home opportunity two years ago.
You see, 99% of Amazon sellers source products through middlemen. Chances are if your products are being quoted to you in $ and not in ¥ you’re dealing with a middle person. Not only do you pay 3-8 times more per unit, but http://www.fox8live.com/story/37326182/news takes you longer and you have fewer options.
As far as I know Amazon seller accounts are in general not transferable, while in theory you could sell your brand and any external ecommerce websites etc I think selling the Amazon account and everything associated with it, product listing, history, reviews etc, which would be 90% of the business value, is not allowed… yes I know, a bummer
You can, in seconds, export every single review that a product has into a file that you can easily sort and find out some useful information. Like what? Well, keywords of course! And you know how one good keyword is easily worth thousands per month per product to you!
Lastly, I would say the now days, the whole Amazon Seller biz model is not nearly as attractive as it was several years ago. Competition has gotten incredible fierce and of course there is the inherent issues with the Amazon biz model.
I think Panorama, offering one on one support with this course is the only way, some sort of skype forum chat group so very one can get there questions answered, I know facebook group can be daunting.
2) Most people that buy the course won’t do a damn thing with it. That’s just how it is with people buying “make money” products. They lie to themselves into thinking that “when they have the time”, or “when the time is right”, or “when they get that next bonus check” or (insert excuse here), then they will take action. In they end, they do nothing and they use the excuse as a reason to justify the non-action to make themselves feel better.
Does anyone who has done the PAC course know whether it is worth buying the PAC course in lieu of Amazing Selling MAchine if you don’t live in The States? I want to find wholesalers in the STates whom I can send private lables to of products found on Amazon that meet the criteria-or even better, ask them to create the labels for these products. Then create a sellercentral account etc and have the products shipped there by the wholesaler. If I don’t have a U.S bank account is this a difficult thing to do?
