For me – that’s where ASM came in and I think it can help you to. In the following review I will share my full experience with Amazing Selling Machine. Hopefully it inspires you to act and build your own Amazon business.
However, you will *not* succeed just by following the material in the course. The course does not teach you advanced eCommerce skills required to be successful. If you do not have *advanced* knowledge and experience with email and social media campaigns, you too will be one of the 90%.

Q: Panorama – You said that there is lots of value in the forums. Do you know if we (as new users in ASM3) gain access to old forum posts (from ASM 1 & 2) once those modules open up? Or are we in our own little forum universe with just our group of ASM3 peeps? (regarding post #657)
Jared is a business attorney for startups and ecommerce entrepreneurs. He founded Stark Business Law PLLC, where he dedicates his practice to helping people start, grow, and protect their businesses online.
The overwhelmingly positive reputation of the Proven Amazon Course and Jim Cockrum. Btw, I’ve now met Jim Cockrum in person twice and had dinner with his family. He is one of those rare people I call “The Real Deal” – down-to-earth, honest and humble. Someone who values serving others, with a vision to empower people to become entrepreneurs (which is one of the reasons he prices the PAC so affordably).
I will not tell you whose face you will see if you watch the video, but you can probably guess. I will add some of these people have taken my money and I have nothing to show for it except a receipt. Wouldn’t that be an interesting product!
Upon completion of ASM’s Entrepreneurial Training program, students will be armed with a plan to establish their start-up businesses or expand their current businesses and guide them to succeed. Our program focuses on creating value by assessing the needs of the customer. Receiving business training will aid in reducing the expenses that accompany the trial and error process, which is used by many new businesses and can be detrimental. Equipping yourself with the proper knowledge and vital information is the more important business plan of all.
As far as the mention of them using their tools to steal your information and promote your products themselves, I don’t see that happening. The reason is because their tools only allow you to promote a specific product on Amazon and get it ranked well. They have no idea if that product is actually selling well as that information is not recorded or tracked in the tools. They would be taking a huge risk by just randomly selecting products that are in the system being promoted not knowing if they are selling at all. It would be like throwing darts at a board of products. They obviously are doing well choosing their own products to promote.
I have a slightly different take on the topic of “getting ranked” on amazon. While I value the skill set you are willing to teach, I’m hearing from numerous sources that Amazon (much like google) is doing everything it can to avoid the manipulation of search results by sellers…and they are getting aggressive about it.
Oh and here’s the other interesting bit of info…when I was cranking out product and I hit 25k….my product made it to the bottom of page 1 for 1 afternoon but has kind of just permanently stayed at number 19-22 on page 2….. so I was selling a TON- on PAGE 2!!
I have spent my money years ago on these big launches and I realized that if these guys was making the money they say they are why are they selling an info product … That is key to me. The go on to say in one of the pdf I download from Matt & Jay Boyer I quote it says … “How did creatng eBooks and digital products become so popular as a way to make money online? The main appeal was automaton and high profit margins. The big problem with this is that you need traffic to sell these digital products. Traffic costs a lot of money, so there goes your high profit margins. It also takes a lot of time to drive this kind of traffic, so there goes your freedom.”
I do have experience selling on Amazon, and I’ve done well with ASM, but I’m not sure if I could have done a much better job training 1,500+ members than they did. There are so many small decisions that have to be made along the way, so there’s no way they could have covered everything in the course, and it would have also been impossible for them to provide every member with personal attention.
Maybe you didn’t read my complete review or understand the point of my review of the Amazing Selling Machine. I know people can be extremely successful importing products, branding them, and selling them online or in places like Amazon. And if you have specific methods that the Amazing Selling Machine is using to really help people become successful, I’d love to hear more about it.
Seriously…hahaha. It’s kinda like that one dude in this forum said he made a net profit of 500 million last year. It’s so ridiculous that you have to wonder about the level of delusion that is going on.
I was shocked when a simple main image test increased my sales from an average of 11/day to 14/day. That may not sound like much but that results in over $4,000 extra in profit put into my pocket each year. Since sales on Amazon vary from day to day and week to week so much, I would never have known the true winner without doing the proper A/B test through Splitly.
CleanTAS 275 : How to Liquidate Products to Get Your Cash BACK with Brad Kugler More often than we’d like to admit our choice of a private label product was not the best choice we could have made. It’s either got too much competition or is not in a viable market to expect sufficient volume of sales. 10/31/2016 Free View in iTunes
It really depends on what you sell. Having said that, a lot of you are assuming you have ZERO liability in whatever you do. Just because you aren’t aware of the liability of what you’re doing doesn’t mean you don’t have liability. Product liability is a whole different beast, but there are product categories where liability is not that much of an issue, and there is insurance.
I took 2 courses (oracle DBA training and SQL training ) at DBA university. Both courses were well presented and had a good number of labs. SRINI is a great instructor and has a lot of experience. He has great knowledge on database administration.He is very engaging and patient.He provided very good and clear explanations of very difficult concepts and made sure every student was on the same page.I learned a lot of valuable information from him and was able to pass my exams.I can only say job well done and money well spent. I am currently taking my 3rd course( Oracle RAC ,ASM and DATA GUARD ) and so far i am having a wonderful experience.

Case in point: Jessica Larrew of Amazon Boot Camp. Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income interviewed Jessica and her husband/business partner Cliff and the couple appear to apply all the principles outlined in ASM except that they don’t source their product from China or other offshore countries (nope, they get their deals at places like Walgreens).
My favorite thing about ASM was that the lessons are broken into really easy to swallow steps. The downside to this is that you’ll be chomping at the bit each week for the lessons and the next steps to get posted.
On margins, again it depends on product category, product type, aggression of promotions, platforms used to advertise, etc. For myself I don’t entertain testing a product if I don’t know that it can make at least 40% pure profit margin (although they sometimes don’t start out at that level). Currently my average profit margin is 53%.
Thank you so much for your insights. I have been selling just books on Amazon for some time and doing some affiliate marketing, getting exhausted with every change in Google and wanted to take another step in Amazon.
If you don’t have a list, go out amazing selling machine affiliate target your ideal customers with FB ads, Instagram and other influencers. Use contests. Give away a coupon code for the opt-in. Then on the thank you page or in an email send them the code and direct them over to Amazon. DO NOT drive traffic directly to your product. Always intercept with the opt-in. If they don’t buy, that hurts your conversions on Amazon. Low conversions result in low rankings.
