You will see ASM-type sellers all over the place. For the “easiest to source and private label products” it is almost funny to see all sellers with with their close to identical wording, fonts, image-types, promos etc. (BEST seller, add to cart NOW!).
For sure private label is the way to go. If you are selling a ‘brand’ product that anyone can buy. You will always find someone comes in and cuts your margin. There is always some willing to work on crazy margins.
This way I can bring in somewhat endless amounts of traffic for work that I created one time. Then I just add in affiliate marketing and I can promote any brand name product without risk of bulk purchases, shipping, taxes, customer support, returns, etc..
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).
Scott provides real value to his listeners. He has given so much time and information here, and has enabled many people to make significant changes in their lives and businesses. With his advice I was able to build a valuable side business, enjoying the journey along the way. I highly recommend!!!!
Going to Alibaba is not a good way to start. Alibaba is full of traders and wholesalers masquerading as manufacturers. They add their margin to the price they pay to the manufacturers, so you have already given a way a substantial part of your potential profit.
I had a lot of clients coming from ASM and although I don’t have any experience first hand with the program I must assume it’s working because I had quite a few clients that came back for the second, third and fourth product.
Private labeling is definitely the route to go if you want to make money on Amazon….actually, it’s the route to go if you want to make BIG money on Amazon. If ASM is what opens your eyes to the possibilities, then so be it. I kinda doubt that there is that much there that is going to make the difference between success/failure, but I could be wrong. The x-factor is your ability to spot an opportunity and then know when to pull the trigger.
I am so glad that I invested in ASM. This is the most solid, profitable business you can find in 2017. The sky is the limit: this is the way I feel right now. To tell you the truth, I even quit my day job because I am making more online – and I was doing pretty well at my old job. I now have the freedom that I always wanted, and I spend more time with the people I care about. I cannot even describe this feeling of freedom!
You have to laugh, I’m reading all these affiliate bonus offers for this course, they tell you how great it is, then tell you that you need their special bonus xyz and abc to be successful because it’s not in the course

I read a review by Jordan Malik on his blog and viewed some of his YouTube videos. He, an experienced Amazon seller, tells you why he doesn’t support the ASM hype, why he considers it grossly overpriced, and also points you to far cheaper alternatives to ASM. There are several books on Amazon on Private Labelling; according to Malik private-labelling is not without risk.
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.
Hi Mac – no doubt, finding reliable suppliers in China can be a big wrestling match BUT when you do find one, it gets easier. I was turned on to sourcing from U.S. suppliers via ProvenPrivateLabel (which is now included in Proven Amazon Course.) And my up-front investment in products was $500 (versus, say, $3,000 for my minimum order quantity in China, albeit for a different product). Like any other course/system, ASM *can* work if you stay committed and keep trying.
You better have quality products and commit to do more than get bogus sales and reviews folks. It is possible. I had one dud and now one success that is growing very well. Biggest advice I can give, is that it is ALL about brand building. My noble competition is priced well below me, but I have the brand that sells at premium and I do not have to worry about the cost cutters (or the ‘viral’ sellers
You already have 100 HOT products to sell on Amazon, so you may not necessarily wasting your time looking for products to sell.You will get access to 8 weeks live training and Q/A session where you can ask any question you like.
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.
As I stated earlier, I am a member currently doing about 50K in revenue a month using the tactics taught in ASM, completely replaced the job I quit last march doing cable tv installations. Its totally doable for almost anyone, the only thing you need is a little capital to get the ball rolling of course, thats the nature of selling your own products on amazon (drop-shipping sucks!)
Here’s my opinion, if you are on a limited budget then you should just figure it out on your own. If you’re smart enough to make more and more money each month, then you’ll eventually get to the point where it will all make sense and you can make a go at private label (that’s what I did).

I like their step-by-step instructions & used them. My books are constantly in the top 10 in their niche, but it just doesn’t translate into big bucks. I would do the math and think how many units you would have to sell in a super crowded environment like Amazon. Yes, they have a lot of shoppers, but it doesn’t mean your sales will amount to much.
Just like the title says, this module walks you through how to set up your business with Amazon Seller Central account. In addition, it walks you through how to do the proper analysis to choose the product that will sell on Amazon.
