I’m a coach for my son’s soccer team and the league has a saying that “the best teacher is the game itself”. In other words, you can study and do drills, but the way you get better is by just playing.
Have you ever wondered what it would take to start consulting for businesses and help them list their products on Amazon? How would you even start that kind of consulting business? What would you charge? How would you grow a team around that business model? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you’ll hear from special guest, Kathleen Kobel. K ……

I’ve listened to the author’s podcasts and workshop. This book goes over a lot of that same material, which is why I like it. It is easy to refer to the section of the book to look up what I need to know at a particular phase. There is a list of Resources and a Glossary — both helpful.
Regarding if a customer sees your and a well-known brand. The online market place has changed so much now. Our goal ultimately is to target impulsive buyers when starting to build momentum and gaining reviews, there are millions on Amazon every min of the day. So as long as we have awesome images, very good optimzied listing, and min 3 reviews sales will come.
As everyone else who got in the program, I watch each and every training video that was released. The most frustrating part of this business is how long it takes for your actual product to arrive at Amazon. For me personally, it took about 10 weeks to get my product sourced, designed, labeled and shipped to Amazon.
In fact, in one conversation with Matt over Torchy’s Tacos in Austin, TX, he and I discussed how this business model didn’t have any “hacks” or “tricks.” There are no gimmicks, no “gaming the system,” just real businesses. Nothing that is going to get you “slapped,” and no loopholes that suddenly disappear once someone catches on. This is a business that gets built over the long term and lasts for years.
The thing is, sometimes you have to try a few different products to really find a great one. Some people are very fortunate and find a swift seller really quickly, others are not. But the thing is– you typically have to try a few things.
You sound like the voice of experience. It’s really hard when you get something all figured out then they change the system or yank the rug out from under you – especially when it happens over and over again. That’s why I like to be my own boss and the Selling Machine sounds like a way to do just that. You’re right, it’s expensive, but if you make lots of money while using it, then so be it. Besides, if there’s a money back guarantee how can you go wrong? Thanks for the tip!
$3500 is a very steep price for learning the course so, I really hope it does work. It does give me confidence though that with 30 days free I can see if it works for me or not. I’m curios about when this opens so I can look more in to taking advantage of it.
Amazon selling machine seemed more oriented around limiting the products you sell but going deep with a specific product like different models/sizes so you limit your FBA storage costs and shipping costs……or private labeling the product so other sellers can’t piggyback on your product and depress margins. The Amazon Selling Machine software was about automating the customer feedback process for you using Amazon API’s get reviews and manage the customer feedback loop for you ? (would have been helpful if they showed an actual inside look at the software being provided)
I know from personal experience that product owners will latch onto your success to use you as a “success story”. The success stories always have some little tidbit that is always missing that you will never know about. Examples are somebody who was already selling on amazon or they already owned a business that was perfectly suited for FBA. Still though, if the program propelled them to success then hat tip to them. But in my estimation, the bulk of the success is due to the right circumstances and the inherent ability of the student.

There’s Matt, a truck driver who had no idea what he was doing. Matt expressed concern about knowing “nothing about marketing,” so he just started a business in something that he was interested in. Shortly after, he had a six figure business, and he had investors courting him and offering him more than $300,000 cash for this business.
It’d be hard to do that without giving anything away, but I’d say you benefit from collective knowledge. Someone comes up with an interesting idea, then others build on it. These ideas get tested by multiple people and you end up with pretty good evidence of what works and what doesn’t.
Update (Feb 2017): Proven Private Label 2.0 has just launched (As of 17 Oct 2017, please don’t buy PPL2.0 on it’s own as it’s now included in PAC). I have started going through the course and can say that it’s very similar to what I do. Most of my sales are in fact “Private Label the Easy Way” type products, including my first and oldest private label product which is currently ranked Top 1.9% in Beauty and another easy way SKU at Top 0.014855% in Industrial & Scientific! One note: All the “Proven” modules are initially launched as standalone courses. They can be purchased separately for those who want to get them at launch. However if they are related to selling on Amazon, they will be added to the Proven Amazon Course about 6 months after launch. This means that if you buy the Proven Amazon Course, you get continual updates at no additional cost – making PAC an incredible value, with course content that is constantly being improved and updated.
FB groups suck in general…why in the world would someone start a FB group instead of a forum anyway? There is 0 organization on the group, and so people keep asking the same questions over and over again.

I’m sure liability insurance is extremely expensive when you’re talking about selling supplements to the masses. So what if you don’t manufacture it? Haven’t you ever heard of a shotgun lawsuit that names everyone and their brother?

Walmart is in the business of moving inventory quickly. The sales of a single store per day are absolutely absurd – some of the busier branches easily hit seven figures in revenue per day. Just FYI, Walmart has over 10,000 stores internationally. Imagine that…
On the financial risk, well, no getting around that. The name of the game is buying and sending stuff to amazon for them to sell. So I guess that’s considered risk, but so is spending money on PPC or developing an infoproduct. There’s actually more risk there because, unlike hard assets, once you spend money on PPC…it’s GONE. At least with Amazon you can dump your products for cheap if you want to get out.
As you can see from my screenshot above – I made over $10,000 in September – only five months after joining ASM. For me it has more than paid itself off. I feel like I am well on my way to creating a six figure a month business and I have a clear path to follow.
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 and 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?
