I’m a member of Jim Cockrum’s Proven Amazon Course (PAC), and while it’s good, it doesn’t cover the private label business model – so you just can’t compare it to ASM. It’s not just about glitz and glamour…it’s a completely different strategy than what he teaches.
First and foremost, thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread. It took me a ton of time to go through everything from the beginning, but I’ve learned a ton about Amazon, FBA, ASM, PL, and other acronyms…
You will also get access to an exclusive Facebook Mastermind Group that I’ve set up, where you can interact with myself and other internet marketers to get your questions answered, network with other successful Amazon sellers, and have others to hold you accountable.
I know a lot of products people are selling using the ASM system, and I monitor their inventory, a lot are complete duds, for example someone is selling kitchen measuring spoons for about $13, has over 700 in inventory and has not sold 1 in over 2 weeks, this is fact not idle speculation, that a lot of people like to post
Personally not familiar with Amazon, have just started to think that an option to sell goods. But what I’ve read so far about Amazon, Amazon does not reveal any info about the amount of sales, so could you tell how do you get hold of these numbers?

Sales tax is not separately calculated and collected in connection with items ordered from The Amazing Store through the Amazon.com Site unless explicitly indicated as such in the ordering process. Items ordered from The Amazing Store may be subject to tax in certain states, based on the state to which the order is shipped. If an item is subject to sales tax, in accordance with state tax laws, the tax is generally calculated on the total selling price of each individual item, including shipping and handling charges, gift-wrap charges and other service charges, less any applicable discounts. If tax is separately calculated and collected in connection with items ordered from The Amazing Store through the Amazon.com Site, the tax amounts that appear during the ordering process are estimated – the actual taxes that will be charged to your credit card will be calculated at the time your order is processed and will appear in your order confirmation notification.
Hi Todd, I signed up for ASM5, and I agree with your article 100%. I pretty much blew $15K, aged a lot because I prioritize taking care of my 1 year old daughter before working on amazon fba, slept very little, and aged a lot. I got very burned out from it. I also got suckered into their affliate services such as spending $1700 for a charlatan to write up a useless amazon.com product description and follow up emails… My wife was right, I got scammed.
I have to say I agree with bayking here. I’ve seen your blog and have watched a lot of your videos. I respect you for what you’ve accomplished with your Amazon business model and how you’ve transitioned that into becoming somewhat of an authority figure on the subject – you’re a good marketer in that respect.

I’ve been following Scott since the very beginning and he feels like a trusted friend who I can count on for information and support. I was out of selling online for many years working a 9-5 job but listening to his podcast really motivated me to take action and start selling again! Now I’m a six figure seller with 7 figures on the horizon. Thank you Scott. Keep up the great work!

I bought Proven Amazon course which I might add is an awesome course if you are interested in buying low and selling high. For the price at the time in 2012 was great for me starting with FBA, I havent visited PAC in a while but based on the emails they have made some improvements, so it my be worth checking out. Their forum is pretty cool, but like any forum conflicting information will always happen.
AMS is not for the tire kicker. Unless you have 10 grand and you are not afraid to lose it the AMS is not for you. Buy a course, buy several courses, go to Amazon and watch their videos, learn how to make $100 a day and then learn how to increase it. You can go to any department store, garage sales, estate sales, flea markets, thrift stores, book sales, dollar stores and thousands of websites to find things to make a profit on. Can you create a listing on Amazon? Can you get your own UPC number? Can you write copy? Do all of these, find a supplier and you have your own product to sell on Amazon. Next thing you know, you have 10 competitors cutting you price. If you know the ropes, the ropes can’t trip you up. Crawl before you walk. Walk before you run. 10% of the people that buy the course are making money is a stretch, maybe 1% and this time next year that 1% will be gone. DANGER.
But personally, I have never seen a business with as much staying power that is so simple as the businesses that I built within Amazing Selling Machine. I am so excited by it that it keeps me up at night.
My point was that (based on your comments) it looks like you judged the launch process and not the http://entertainment.asialogue.com/news/amazing-selling-machine-course-evergreen-launch-2018-start-an-ecommerce-business/0045744/ I agree there’s more than one way to skin a cat, so all the power to you if you’ve found another way. But if you haven’t found another way, and you passed on this just because the launch was “overkill”, then you’ve only done yourself a disservice by not at least judging the course itself.
I just had one competitor who I am sure was doing this abandon my niche after it was obvious he was not making money. Here was a guy who had about 1000 items in stock. Just sold out recently and now has moved on to the the next niche, trying to strike it rich all over again with this ‘viral’ software.
The strategies you have told and the training you have provided is really awesome. And if any person follow it correctly and if do the smart work according to your training then he can achieve all the… heights he wants in life. I am really thankful for the course you have provided. If somebody is not getting the success then he or she should think that he or she is somewhere less in efforts there is no other reason at all. See More

Thanks for your kind feedback on my Amazing Selling Machine Review. I tried to analyze their program from my experience of working in the importation and drop-shipping industry and give a little perspective on their over-hyped and overpriced program.
I didn’t go into detail but I’m actually very well versed in IP law for a business owner without a law degree. I’m not over thinking anything. I’m just providing a more detailed answer to the question.

ASM seems like it teaches the same things as far as titles, description, keywords, getting reviews, using youtube all to get your item ranked higher. But they do go on and say how SEO, etc. will do nothing for you. I do not know if this is true?
I’ve been looking to get into a business model that is focused in the online world for location independence and is ripe for automation after doing the work on the front end to get things set up. This seemed to hit all the right buttons so I went ahead an signed up after a brief review to make sure that the 30-day refund looked legitimate. It wasn’t until after joining up that I spent the time going through this entire thread.
Anyway, from there, things started to grow, because as we made sales, we started getting reviews. As we started getting reviews, we made more sales. As we made more sales, we climbed up the Amazon rankings… and the snowball started to to grow and grow and grow…
I have set up my store, chosen my first 3 products to launch, found a supplier and have placed my first inventory order for my first product. It honestly takes about a month to get to this point so it’s not really feasible to say that the 30 day refund policy covers you long enough to see if it really is going to work for you. However, there have been a few students that have product in inventory and are already making daily sales on Amazon. But we have just started on the promotion and ranking sections of the training and won’t see the fruits of those efforts for a few weeks most likely.

No business is ever a walk in the park, but it will likely be 10x harder for ASM3 participants than it was for ASM1 participants. A small percentage will likely make it big, but I am also guessing some (or most) participants will not make their money back this time around.
