Let me clarify. If I’m on Amazon trying to buy a set of cookware. And I see two different brands selling the same thing. One brand is well known and selling for a lower price. Another brand is someone who is doing private labeling. His brand is unknown but the price is higher. As a consumer I will buy the cheaper product.
To be fair the product creators suggest that you can gain an advantage if you promote the product well via Amazon and You Tube and they’re right – this will enable you to stand out from competitors. However, there’s nothing to stop other people from doing the same thing.
My post on different courses isn’t really meant for someone at your level. If you don’t mind spending some money to pick up just a couple of golden nuggets here and there, private message me and I can recommend a couple of worthwhile course options not on that list that might suit your needs better.
But my problem is selling on Amazon. I do not do well there. I have personally seen others make well over $10,000 profit per month drop shipping products on Amazon using the exact system I am. But I cant seem to sell more then 3 items per week there. So I came across ASM. But I am trying to justify the cost and work involved just for one product when I have personally seen others make thousands showing me their sales via Skype trying to help me out simply drop shipping items from big box stores, or other popular online stores. I even drop ship items from Amazon. Not to mention the http://business.times-online.com/times-online/news/read/35644596 pays you first before you even buy the item. No money out of pocket.
I don’t think it’s too strange that posters wouldn’t come out of the woodwork. For the first 2 years, Stompernet was great but if you posted in here, you’d have most people just calling it overpriced.
I am wondering what the real business model is behind ASM. I’ve been bombarded with ASM promotion mails recently (maybe because I’m a very modest FBA seller). One of those pluggers was bragging that he had 100+ subscribers to his last group.(prerequisite:you have to subscribe to ASM first). And after some searching it appeared that he got “a couple of $” for every subscription. After a bit more searching, it appeared that these “couple of $” were actually 50%. So at $4000 for the course, that makes $2000 a pop and $200.000 for his first batch of subscribers.
CleanTAS 190 : Ask Scott Session #55 – Your Amazon FBA Questions What are your current struggles in building your Amazon private label business? Do you have the resources you need in order to deal with those hurdles effectively? If you don’t, this is the episode for you. 4/15/2016 Free View in iTunes
For those of you that have been around long enough, around 8 years ago Stompernet was launched with an annual membership price of close to $10K. At least with that, you were tackling something that was a little tough to navigate on your own. Sourcing products, building an e-commerce site, email marketing, analytics, testing, etc.
Ask yourself this: if it’s so easy to do, and if the money is so big, why wouldn’t all the folks on their support team do it, too? Why waste your time selling something, if you can do so much better selling it to somebody else?
The Amazing Seller podcast is one of the more popular FBA podcasts, and deservedly so. Scott works hard to have resources for seasoned sellers, and beginners. With more than 200 episodes under his belt, The Amazing Seller is bursting with content and covers a ton of Amazon topics. Our only gripe with the podcast is that every episode is nearly an hour long. This can be great when looking for an in-depth discussion of a topic, but it can also make the podcast difficult to digest at the risk of fluff. Overall this is a can’t-miss podcast for any seller.
The market saturation issue was my primary concern for quite some time as well. But after seeing how many opportunities there are on Amazon, I can’t see how it would ever be an issue. If you are in the top 1000-2000 in a product category, you are doing ok. So with dozens of categories, I don’t see the market saturation issue coming into play.
Having said all that, the opportunities are ripe. In most good categories, there aren’t that many products with 10+ reviews. You could be the “brand” name product with just a little marketing push. Reviews=Sales on Amazon.
Hype like the Amazing Selling Machine is going to make you rich. You have to do the work in whatever business you get in to, and that’s not how the Amazing Selling Machine portrays their business at all.

I did find it strange that Amazon Selling Machine didn’t have any testimonials and results shown from their “Beta” testers ? (They said it was legal stuff but any product owner can just have the standard disclaimers to take care of that like “These results are not guaranteed and are not typical” and show testimonials of their success stories.) The price is certainly steep but I guess people pay those numbers easily for high level mentoring and masterminds so if the quality of people in it are high then there is value there. I guess the big question if if it really is “exclusive” and won’t reopen again.
This course provides networking professionals a functional understanding of iRules development. The course builds on the foundation of the Administering BIG-IP course, demonstrating how to logically plan and write iRules to help monitor and manage common tasks involved with processing traffic on the BIG-IP system.
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this and reviewing different courses. Proven Amazon Course (“PAC”) is good value, and it has it’s place, but if you’re interested in the private label business model, I wouldn’t recommend it as a first choice. There are better options out there.

I’m going to take you from the VERY beginning of my Amazing Selling Machine journey, because I started from zero. Yes, today I do about $500,000 per month on Amazon, but I started off making about two sales a day. Yes, I started at zero, and you will too.
I think the price is absolutely fair for the product being offered. It certainly isn’t for everybody, but for people who already know a few things about IM and have had some success…this is a no-brainer.
1. 30 day refund policy beginning from the first day of training which begins March 21. After asking Jason, the co-creator of the training a question about how long it takes to start selling product, his answer was that if I apply the techniques taught, within 4 weeks I should be selling product daily. If this happens, I should be able to get a realistic picture of what type of monthly net profits to expect from each product and determine if it warrants continuing and the investment of the training. If not, then I am within the 30 days and can get a refund. It would seem that after only 4 weeks, I should have a worst case scenario of what my monthly sales will be, as I should be able to vastly improve my results through more personal experience, adding more products and the advanced trainings during the final 4 weeks.
They teach you also when to expand to other Amazon sites especially the European sites like UK & Germany. The entire process is shown in details here (this is of Amazing Selling Machine 8 course if you start out with Amazon US which is Amazon.com.)

I have been following this thread since last year when I was interested to sell on Amazon FBA. I’m from a country in Europe which is allowed to sell on Amazon. I was wondering if someone who bought the ASM course could give me some tips how to start selling on Amazon FBA from a country outside US. Do I have to register a company in US or not? Can I buy products from China and have them sent to Amazon FBA (while I’m personally located in Europe) ?
The basic idea of this program is that you find products that are already selling well on Amazon, private label them so you don’t have to compete, and use FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon) to do the rest. No need to take an order, ship it, or even take care of a refund. This sounded so simple that even one of The Three Stooges could probably do it.
