As much as I think it’s a good model, no one should be buying ASM if it’s with money they can’t afford to lose. If you can afford the cost, but can’t handle “feeling like crap” if your product is a dud, you shouldn’t buy this course either. Like I said earlier – this is a business and there’s no guarantee of success. If you can’t brush off a failure in business, then it’s not for you.
There is, however, no straight answer as it depends a great deal on what category you decide to compete in, what product you choose, the level of competition, the methods you choose to market, your abilities and skills, and a whole lot more.
And regarding your examples that you laid out, it’s always easier when we’re just speaking in hypotheticals I guess it depends on how you define your margins. Some people saying “My gross margins are 66% because I buy it for $10 and sell it for $30 on Amazon” while others will define their gross margins by 33% because they deduct the Amazon fees and transportation costs associated with selling it. The latter is more accurate in my opinion.

Firstly, yes you can, but most coaching offered in the make money online world is not worthy of the title “coaching”. I have bought 7 coaching programs over the years, all from respectable IM names. 5 were rubbish.
I have recently bought in retail stores some high quality products made in Italy and Germany at prices at least as low as lesser quality similar products made in China. Eastern European countries are good places to source certain products, and buyers should consider other places such as Turkey and Brazil.

Why only semi? One of the biggest issues with drop-shipping is keeping product costs down. Products that are bought cheaply can generate a hefty profit for the seller once they are marked up. This is exactly how Wal-Mart makes billions of dollars from seemingly low-priced goods.
ASM member here. ASM is like all other information products marketed via affiliates. I was informed by one of the top 3 affiliates of ASM that over 90% of http://www.myndnow.com/story/37326182/news who start ASM will eventually fail or just fizzle out within a year or two. He has personally worked with hundreds of ASM and Amazon private label sellers, 9 out of 10 of them are no longer selling on Amazon.
What drives the point home about how (IMO unreasonably) high a price point ASM is, is the fact that if you get others to sign under your affiliate, you get to pocket $2K. So sure, you can make up that initial $4K outlay if you get others to sign up, but for me, I’d have to be *really* on board with ASM in order to, in good conscience, personally pitch it like it is advertised.
Keep that in mind for a moment. Now think about how many memberships they can sell at this price. 1,000? 2,000? I think those are high estimates, but let’s say 2,000 memberships, with $1,000 profit each. That’s $2.0 million dollars total one-time profit, right?
We had our first sale on June 5th, 2013, and ended up selling about $1,000 worth of product that first month. We immediately put in another order for more inventory (this time, about 250 units, about a $1200 investment).
I have not posted in a long time, but what is really sad about this is for marketers who did have some trust to push this out to their list … I got this from email from Jay Boyer namely the Jay, John, James, Matt email@example.com

It’s easier to compete in categories where there’s more brand diversification. You have to think: in what areas are people more likely to try a niche or unknown brand? In certain categories niche brands make up a sizable portion of the market share.

Now we are in agreement on that, but here is where it gets sticky: is the seller well versed enough in the industry to be well aware of ALL of a particular company’s designs to know when they are or are not potentially infringing upon a design?
My approach is simple – I don’t promote launches or fads. I grow my own business, and if something legit and sustainable is working for me THEN I tell my friends about it & charge a fair price to train those who want training. This way I can hire good people & pay my staff well to train those who want it – all the while we run my businesses DOING what we teach BEFORE we teach it. It’s really not complicated to do the right thing.
