It’s because most marketing gurus teach the theory and not the facts. The truth is that marketing “theory” doesn’t always translate to sales and every business is going to react differently depending on the strategy
Jim Cockrum’s course is great. The only downside is he focuses on a retail arbitrage process and that can be difficult to scale and sustain, and for some people it’s just not doable. However, all the basic building blocks are there. Where Amazing Selling Machine improves is by focusing on manufacturing, branding and marketing. Or private labeling, branding and marketing. But you don’t need the course to do that. However, you do need to understand how to purchase from manufacturers and/or distributors, the basics of branding and product promotion and marketing.
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.)
ASM may not be a proper scam but it is sold like one. What potential members are NOT told is how much $$$$ over and above the cost of the ASM course are needed in order to start a PL (or any other for that matter) biz on Amazon.

I can’t say I’m not a little nervous dropping such a big chunk on a training program. I am used to buying $10 and $20 WSO’s. But I also know that with most programs, people aren’t successful because they didn’t fully apply themselves or didn’t stick with it long enough, if the training program wasn’t junk. If they said it would take 60 days or longer to start selling product daily, I would never have purchased it knowing I would be outside of the refund period before I knew if it was successful. And as I mentioned earlier, if it works which it certainly makes sense to me that it will, $3500 is a drop in the bucket.
DEALING WITH NEGATIVE REVIEWS Negative reviews are at the top of some of the worst things that can happen to an Amazon seller. So what recourse do you have? Should you respond to the negative reviews? Abandon the listing and start a new one? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott walks through several ways sellers like you can deal with negative reviews left on your product listing. One thought that Scott shares is to consider offering a new and improved product that resolves the reviewer’s issues free of charge as a response to the review that they left.

Will you be like me, who went from zero to $200k/month in a year? Or like Brian, who did even more than that per month in the same amount of time? Or one of many other ASM members who are at $25k/month, $50k/month, $100k/month, and beyond? One of our members consistently does over one million dollars per month.

5- Supplements also belong to a category of products whereby the branding is almost entirely wrapped into the marketing. Every year I go to the outlet sale at Meyer (cookware company) warehouse. You see product upon product and the only differentiating factor is which chef that product is branded for: Mario Batali vs Emeril Lagasse vs Rachel Ray vs that Italian lady. Same product, same company, different endorsement.
The only “con” I’d say for the program is that it has a high price-tag to join. Also, depending on what product you decide to private label, there are some additional expenses with purchasing your inventory.
I am taught to monopolize the market, sell what is not for sale on Amazon. But sell a similar item that someone is already selling with great success. Example, sell a dinette set, but sell one that is similar, if not better then one that is a top seller. But make sure you are the only one with your item.

the underpinning of this whole system is being able to negotiate an even lower price at the supplier side. sure, that’s just business, but, this predatory model will soon saturate and backfire. the only reason that suppliers compromise on price is lack of customers. but as soon as there’re sufficient number of people doing this, that problem will disappear, and they will start reversing the game on the buyers – i.e. you.
My NET profit is margin is 52% excluding shipping fees (to amazon) product creation, FBA fees and any another fees included. You can work out the math, in my case I am making a healthy profit on a small number of units, as I increase my orders the cost of my product WILL reduce, like in any retail business, the more one buys, the cost is less.
I also know a lot of other ASM products and the vast majority of the videos produced generate virtually zero views (less than 100) never mind click throughs to a sales page, I have to say that most of the videos are great http://studio-5.financialcontent.com/mi.bradenton/news/read/35644596 pretty well made by any standard but promotional sales videos simply don’t work very well for selling products, do you really think a video about a spatula is going to get a lot of attention?
