The overall strategy makes sense, but it really has little to do with the traditional IM product. This is all about selling a physical product via an online marketplace. I think the reason it’s being promoted to the IM space is because people are looking for the magic way to make millions and this product promises that.
I’d love to get some elaboration on the term “generic” used here and elsewhere. Are these branded items? A few examples would be great (no need to use real-world examples in order to project your products).

I have been using Amazon FBA for 3 years now. Well about Amazon Selling Machine I have met a couple of people that have used this program and some have had success and some have not. What I noticed with any programs is that the one’s who actually apply it will have success. It is a good program with a high price tag but from what I have seen with some people it is worth it.
Just as an example, compare it to a course that teaches you how to invest in real estate. I think it would be hard to say that there’s no opportunity to make money, but you have to follow best practices and search out the right opportunities.

I did read in this thread that someone that was already successful in Amazon sales and had about 95% of the knowledge before joining ASM claim that the remaining 5% info he gained made a huge difference in his sales. So its all about what you are looking for at present time and whether it is financially doable for you.
I am in many nitches and only followed partially what Matt and Jason preached in the ASM Course. I quit my day job and sell on Amazon full time. I started with Retail Arbitrage and wholesale to get into the game SUPER FAST. Now I am slowing selling off most of this stuff and replacing it with Private Label and New Wholesale Products as this is alot less work in the long run, and I control my products/listings. My most successful and profitable products are Private Label and some Wholesale. There is SOO much information in the course that I haven’t even done half of it, or used their tools yet. I’m still working up to that while still managing my inventory.
I knew I was in the wrong place with Amazon Associates as it just seems to be too much time and effort for little reward for me, but FBA was out of my comfort zone so I never jumped in eventhough I bought what is now ASM6 3 years ago! I need to speak with you privately about how you did this! Can you send me a PM please?

A couple of things you mentioned caught my eye which was and I quote “My books are constantly in the top 10 in their niche, but it just doesn’t translate into big bucks.” This is one of your main problems, you stayed with a low return business module. I am aware of the course last year which was based on many methods (private labeling, wholesale, kindle ect), and M&J highlighted kindle is a great business, however the return is poor compared to private labeling.
I know I probably sound like a hypocrite since I’d earn a commission on alternative courses as well, but they are significantly less than what I could earn promoting ASM. With the private label market becoming more saturated and the increase in price, I just can’t in good amazing selling machine videos promote it without at least acknowledging that there are decent alternatives now.
Sorry if I come across rude, I just wanted to sate the facts, most of your reply is incorrect. Most people dont know how to blacklink and use services correctly, they are the ones shouting out “it dont work”.
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this and reviewing different courses. Proven Amazon Course (“PAC”) is good value, and it has it’s place, but if you’re interested in the private label business model, I wouldn’t recommend it as a first choice. There are better options out there.
We all have different situations and it may or may not be the right time, but from what I’ve been seeing, the course has benefited more than less. It’s a matter of whether your $4k is more or less valuable than the course. I think for the majority $4k is hard to give up…
You said selling more moves your product up the rankings. But how do you get your product to sell in the first place? You mean to tell me all you have to do is list your product on Amazon and it starts selling?
ASM owners claim to give you a full refund within 30 days in case if you didn’t like the product. When I first heard that I was thinking: “Is 30 days really enough to understand this business when their course is at least 8 weeks”? – Well within those 30 days you can pretty much get familiar with the program and get as far as setting up your Amazon Sellers account, contact suppliers and even order some sample products. However…
Ryan – ‘treated’ what way? How do you feel treated, I must have wounded you. So please elaborate. I and the world want to know. I am right here to listen to you, absorbing hours of my time. Please continue.
I watched your video and your comments above don’t change the fact that (a) many of your points in the video had little merit; (b) you diverted people to another product where you would earn an affiliate commission; and (c) you decided to post a link to your video “review” here, but it obviously wasn’t only about helping your reputation/fans/followers/readers/tribe. In fact, the post was ultimately deleted by moderators, presumably because they found it to be too self promotional.
The new price is $3,500. I just signed up. It looks pretty good. The community is very responsive and appear to be helping one another. Our first session will be on May 1st. Will keep everyone posted on my progress.
I am currently full time military in Canada but will be savagely chasing success in this field. With two young sons now, the thought of doing this full time is so much more appealing than killing time at sea or sitting around Middle Eastern countries. Very strong motivator!
I followed the promotional videos for the ASM a while back and at the time I remember I was quite impressed. But, they keep the price until the end and when I saw how much it was I followed no further.
