Once beginners are past their initial learning many go onto select products that don’t ‘fit’ all the beginner criteria. I’ve coached many beginners through the ASM course materials and have seen many, many of them go onto select a 2nd, 3rd, 4th product using more intermediate and even advanced criteria.
Importing and drop-shipping are a bit more risk and will involve buying products, so I’d start with affiliate marketing. If you’ve got the ability to spend the amazing bulk budget good 6 months working at it, you can get it to start producing regular income, if you can then work at it full time, you will be amazed at what you can create.
If what Matt and Jadon offered is overpriced and not worth any investment at all, and suppose it does not work, why do we not see all the previously purchased members (with the exception of 1 or 2) posting their negative feedback here?
Casey is the founder and CEO of Viral Launch, a tech company offering innovative software for Amazon Sellers. He has intimate knowledge of the Amazon product niche finding and launch process and has helped thousands of sellers launch successful products on Amazon.
1) the pace of the course sort of made me focus on each part of the process so I didn’t rush through it “just to get it done”. There were some simple things I should have been doing all along but was too distracted by other things.
Affiliate marketing has so many advantages, as described here in this review of the Amazing Selling Machine, compared to trying to import products and sell them on your own site or through Amazon or eBay.
With regard to contacting Amazon customers directly, I think the policy is pretty clear that you can contact them within the context of that transaction and no more. Does ASM advise doing more than that? Asking for reviews is ok as well.
In the movie It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, Jonathan Winters made an observation about businessmen. Being a young tyke when I first saw that, I believed it to be pretty much true. Now you come along and break the mold with your attitude and ethics. Kudos to you, but now what happens to my view of how the world operates?
Once your listing is up on Amazon.com and you’re getting ready to launch, I’ll allow to send me an email with your listings and I will review it MYSELF, and provide feedback on what I like, what I don’t like, and how you can make it better for both a Conversion perspective, and a Ranking/Search Engine Optimization Perspective as well.
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.
@Titan86 – That is would not be true. Amazon is a global business and there is 7 billion people living on planet. Amazon.com is only for the (US) market. It is the largest, but China’s economy is growing very fast is on the verge of becoming the largest economy.
Another great heads-up. Thank you Jordan. I saw your first warnings three years ago and decided to steer well clear of these jokers. I’m surprised they’re back. Just out of curiosity, I looked at their website about a year ago, and they were involved with an entire portfolio of b2b ventures, including (of all things) real estate spruiking. By the way, what happened to that mother & daughter lawyer team they sent after you a while back?

I was on a webinar with them 3/14/13. They had written that it was to be about the great software we would be using, and once it got started they mentioned 7 softwares, but then went on to only (sort of) cover, I’m pretty sure – 3 of them. I kept asking what about the other software, but they were having too much FUN giving away Amazon gift certificates. If you’d like to Hear & Watch how Honest they are, this is a link to the very same webinar, I believe. No way I’m going to watch it again to verifyWebinar Replay | The Amazing Selling Machine

Azzurent, with its thousands of branches and steady flows of customers to each, is going to be sending out a lot of inventory and to every single branch daily. In such large quantities, estimating sales volume is never perfect. Let’s say that, on average, a particular branch of Azzurent sells 200 bike helmets per week.
