CleanTAS 274 : Ask Scott Session #83 – Your Business and Marketing Questions Many people who get started selling products online, whether on eBay, Amazon, or other sites run into snags and obstacles that they can’t figure out how to overcome. Wouldn’t it be great if someone who’s been in those shoes would advise you on wha 10/28/2016 Free View in iTunes
But to answer your question, way to pick the most ridiculous example possible and paint the entire process with a broad brush. Maybe you can’t sell TVs as private label, but just go ahead an pick the other 99% of things on Amazon and do it private label. Just because something is a “brand”, doesn’t mean it’s a “brand name” to the general public. There are tons of products that are sold through big boxes, but nobody associates “Product x” with their name.
Like I taught in my free presentation, finding the product and supplier is not that hard. The toughest part and where specific training from a proven seller can help is getting your product ranked on page 1 and top 3.
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?
5. Get a good idea of if your product is selling – Even though eBay isn’t your end goal, search the product and hit the completed listing to the left to see how much of that product is selling. Consider if its all brand name or no name and know that it’s simple to stand out of the no names…create a logo (I did mine on fiverr and got it revised once I knew I had a hit) and watermark it over no name products. Make sure you take the pic and its not the same pic the factory sends…that means anyone can have access to that pic, thus you won’t stand out.
For what it’s worth, even though I’ve done we’ll with the model for years, I launched a new product with tips from ASM and am now averaging $150 – $200 in profit per day on this new product alone. I won’t credit all of this to ASM, but it did help me improve my own process a bit.
I would assume most people realize this, but when you’re shopping around for a “coach” you should be careful of the sales figures that are reported. I have a product that sells for $9.99, costs me $1.25, and I net (after all fees and product costs) $4.76 per sale. Last year I sold 630 of them over a 9 month period. This is the type of product that is so far under the radar that it probably wouldn’t cross anyone’s mind to sell. Sure, it’s not a HUGE money maker, but I profited around $340/month in profit.
This course gives network administrators, network operators, and network engineers a functional understanding of the BIG-IP system as it is commonly deployed in an application delivery network. The course introduces students to the BIG-IP system, its configuration objects, how it processes traffic, and how typical administrative and operational activities are performed.
Sidenote: they did it again with eyelash curlers (which I was going to use as an example before I heard this in their video) and they used the brand Shu Uemera as an example. Again, another globally known brand. WTF? Why do they just talk out of their butts with this stuff?

Unfortunately the import business is not an easy one. I would prefer it about affiliate marketing as I don’t like to write content everyday. And I wonder if the affiliate marketing business isn’t as competitive as selling on Amazon or maybe even more.
I have 5 products I private label that I manufacture (not label an existing design but are made to my spec) therefore they truly really are exclusive (because of the nature of the design are copyright protected– registered). I pay $5 landed and sell for $20 on Amazon. They are consistent sellers and I will be back up after replenishing inventory.
Even this answer, while well intended, is simplistic. Trademarks are for identity/brand, patents are for design/process, etc., Products can be both patented and trademarked. And often the ENTIRE product is not patented as a whole, but in components/parts.
Most say the same thing, but there is a lot of opportunity with it. The manufacturer of the supplements must carry insurance. A reputable distributor of supplements has to carry insurance that covers the distributor because they make the product.

I honestly feel bad for guys like you who passed on an opportunity because you judged the process rather than the program. I can understand why someone passes because it’s not right for them or because it’s just too expensive for them – but those who passed simply because the launch was “overkill” – well, that’s just stubbornness and they will never really know what they missed out on.
Moreover, you also learn to make attractive product images that will increase your conversion rate. Do you know that product images is very important because they can drive sales, you should not ignore them. The most interesting thing I think is the examples of bad and good product pictures for you to compare and have the real look as well as understand how to do in the right way.

With that said, I do see a lot of potential here based on the data and the facts that I have been able to obtain as well as my experience in retail and IM. The program just makes sense from a business standpoint and if you follow the training, your product listing is far superior to 95% of all the other products on Amazon, which in turn will be more attractive to the buyer and convert higher.
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.

4. I have done some affiliate marketing on the side and the biggest obstacle has always been trying to compete with Amazon. It seems for most products they always come up first. So why not use that leverage and ranking power combined with some basic SEO and keyword research skills to sell my own products on Amazon and dominate the search engine listings. Why should I continue earning only 6% as an Amazon affiliate when I can make 25-50%?

If you are from the US, then go with Jim Cockrums PAC (Proven Amazon Course) for now. You will learn the FBA part very well and will be ready when the ASM course (or a follow up) will come along in the future (next year?).
However, I did have a concern that the course is an 8 week course. Does this mean it can only be accessed as they release it? I really don’t like that. I would rather be able to see the course in its entirety and work it at my own pace.
Take it a step further and go to camelcamelcamel.com. It’s a free resource. Copy the URL of the product page and pop it in. It will give you data history on the listing. You can see how long it’s been selling, the BSR over the course of time. Is it seasonal or is it steady all year round? You want to go after steady products. Avoid seasonal in the beginning. Also, make sure the seller has a track record. At least 6-8 months.
