The example that you outlined above would not just be rare, it’d be EXTREMELY rare and unlikely. 625-1000 units a day of a product that he’s making 40% net margins on? I have to assume that he’s selling a “generic” type product and it’s not proprietary. And if that’s the case, anything that is generating those kind of sales is easily the type of product that would attract imitators.
It’d be hard to do that without giving anything away, but I’d say you benefit from collective knowledge. Someone comes up with an interesting idea, then others build on it. These ideas get tested by multiple people and you end up with pretty good evidence of what works and what doesn’t.
As for the importing side of it, most people are under the false impression that it is difficult. It http://markets.pentictonherald.ca/pentictonherald/news/read/35644596 has been a nightmare for a lot of people I have seen, who try to learn all the rules and regulations, but there is no need to do that. I teach people how to import the easy way.
This course is strictly focused on wholesale sourcing, different ways to do market research to determine what products to source for Amazon, as well as how to spot pockets of opportunity, and consumer trends.
All the other modules focus on how to make an entire process much smoother and all the perks you want to know from the training rather than making mistakes on your own. And best of all the information you get is up to date since Amazon changes their rules every year. If you ever wanted to buy a course online on Amazon – just know that 6 months down the line many things will be no longer valid as rules on Amazon are constantly changing.
Most of what turns me off about the ASM boys is the marketing BS. They bragged on the callen webinar about all the success stories, even though the disclaimer at the bottom says most don’t make any money. What is even funnier about the stats is that they show someone that showed their “Sales Summary” figures of $50K and says “Just made my first $50K in profit”. Sales summary shows the total amount that Amazon charged, not even CLOSE to the amount that you end up with….and before product costs.
Sample products = $100 (average estimate) (not quite true. 95% of my products are from USA, most of my suppliers sent out a sample for free. And even my other supplier who is outside the USA also sent me a sample for free. That is best case. Worst case, I agree with you. My cost $0
The only reason why I will not be an affiliate is because 60-70% of people are expecting a quick fix, fast cash. Which means I cant crack the whip on them to work hard (I know most people will disagree with this). If its my friends, I can crack the whip all day long.
Amazon. Amazon has a tremendous amount of trust with online shoppers and millions of people go to Amazon every week to shop for products. It will be a lot easier to sell your product once its listed on Amazon than it is for you to sell it on your own.
An affiliate for ASM makes over 2K/transaction when the sell one ASM membership. So Skip could have cleaned up really well with ASM’s affiliate program. The gave him a free membership to entice him to check it out.

I think the Amazing Selling Machine is way too expensive for someone who is new to online business. And yes, most online businesses should be much less expensive to start. However, with importing, you are always going to have the risk of inventory/no sales.
If someone doesn’t have the willingness to take action and make a start right on the Amazon site, how willing are they going to be to follow through on a course that they just throw a lot of money at?

So if you want to overpay for ASM, go right ahead, if you want to get real training from a REAL Power Seller from both Amazon and eBay, I’d go with Skip first and see if it’s right for you. For a $3,850 difference, it seems worth it to me.
@Raam Dust – You’re right. Amazon do have rules in place because they don’t want solicitation from outside sources to ruin the buyers experience or abuse the system. If they receive too many complaints, they will shut you down.

3. We carry some private label products in our locations now and the profit margin is much higher on those. With this strategy, we are creating our own brand and don’t have to compete with other sellers carrying the same exact brand of product. Of course everything hinges on being able to get the products ranked in Amazon but after 4 weeks of training, I will see if it really does work.

I have decided that buying low and selling high on amazon is the best way to go (for me at least). There are descent services that help you find products. I use FBAMyLife dot com, but FBAfinds is also good. These services find products for you to buy and resell (for a price of course). But they are helpful.

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.
Alice Dominguez said the intersection near her grandchildren’s school can get busy in the morning as people drop off their kids or head to work, but that is no excuse for what she is seeing every morning.
For a long time I was very curious on how to sell products on Amazon and invest as little money as possible. I have read a ton of educational materials online and even tried reselling products from China on Amazon but I could not get desired success as I was doing something wrong. These were my main concerns:
Ok, I looked through the Proven Amazon Course mentioned above and it does cover the FBA basics and seems good. Much of the content was done in a couple years ago. It covers a lot about selling books through Amazon FBA and the strategy of finding cheap clearance items at local Walmart/target …I didn’t see anywhere where it shows you how to remove yourself from the process of having to package,label, and ship your products to Amazon FBA. to.
I have a local business that pays my bills and I have to dedicate most of my time to that. I am doing this in my spare time. I also have two kids and volunteer at my church and those 3 things are my priority, although not in that order of course (Family and church comes first).
2) Tips from other people in the community. When I first heard M&J say that they learned a lot from members of the predecessor course (Amazing Money Machine), I thought that was just marketing BS. This has honestly been invaluable though.
As panorama says as a member you will have access to everything that has happened since you last visited. Even better ASM6 has just been re-written and added to with new content. The core modules alone have now increased from 8 to 12.
