If you want to sell unlimited products on Amazon (which I assume you would), you will need to signup as a professional seller on Amazon Seller Central. It’s a paid service (about $40/month), and there’s a one month free access when you sign-up.
I have 1 product that I buy for 0.50 landed from china (meaning shipping and everything factored in) that I clear $1.85 (after all fees and COGS). The ONLY reason I sell it is because it sells reliably and consistently and why not? it’s an extra few hundred a month and it costs nothing. I would not go LOOKING for another product like this, but it was something I already knew about.
6. Although the doors are officially closed now to new members, I would imagine that once this first group has completed the training, they will open it up to a second round of new members. If the majority of us are not successful, we will certainly post that and it will hinder those who do their due diligence and research from buying in.
Since you purchased ASM a few years ago, I’m sure you’ve already got a network. If not, I’ve heard good things about a couple of high-level paid Masterminds as well. I’m not a member of any myself though, so they would just be second-hand recommendations.

If you come into Amazing Selling Machine with an attitude of gaming the system, or selling crappy products, or forgetting that this is a real business with real growth, then I would recommend that you stay away from ASM.
The Sellers Summit is the ultimate “ecommerce learning experience” where you will get inspired not by stories, but by gaining all of the knowledge required to run your own successful ecommerce business
As someone who considers myself to be an FBA newbie, I actually think it’s kinda pathetic what passes as an expert these days. Another video posted in this thread where a guy was bragging about making $5K over a 10 month period and ended up getting his product banned? In the Proven Amazon Course, people bragging about doing $25K this year in Amazon sales? I’m not one to rag on someone for their success, no matter how small, but I don’t know if I agree with someone automatically becoming a teacher when they first taste a little success; just doesn’t seem right to me.
As with the ASM business model, real estate investing is not something you couldn’t do without training, but having guidance makes it easier and would likely improve your probability of success. Similarly, if you have access to a group of people utilizing the same business model, you can also learn a tremendous amount from your peers, and avoid some mistakes, as they share their experiences.
With more sellers good at marketing, the actual product(s) offered will be increasingly important. Much harder to get a unique product offer come to life with limited resources overseas and limited capital.
No, the Amazing Selling Machine is not a scam. There are no up-sells within the program and there is a real training that has videos and .pdf documents that teach you how to build solid Amazing business in shortest time possible.
ASM International is the world’s largest association of materials-centric engineers and scientists. We are dedicated to informing, educating, and connecting the materials community to solve problems and stimulate innovation around the world.
Cost of education is really relative to what you gain with the training. If you learn how to earn by importing and can continue to improve upon your importing business, than it probably doesn’t matter.
Your product arrives at Amazon’s warehouse, and your item is for sale under the official brand sales page on Amazon. This is important – you are an independent seller, but you get to harness the power of the official brand page’s advertising and traffic.
And yes, I offer an real online educational program that is perfect for those who are willing to work and don’t want to risk a ton of money like you ABSOLUTELY will have to if your importing products to make real, substantial money online.
Thanks for the informed article. You really covered this well. I had a look at this a while back and it was the huge price tag that had me running for cover. Since then I have seen a few that do not cost an arm and a leg, training is good and so is the support. I think it depends on how big your wallet is. If you can afford this, then go for it as they seemed very legit and knowledgeable.
We won’t have access until halfway through the training after we have already set up our store, picked a product to sell, found a supplier and have it in our inventory, so the product selection software is obviously not going to be one of the tools. They are teaching us how to do that manually. I almost bought in to Matt’s program last year and I do remember that product selection tool. Not sure what happened to it but since everything hinges first on choosing the right product, doing it manually with their guidance and instruction is definitely the way to go.
Lastly, since I’m very much interested in this program and I have missed the time to join, if anyone in the course is interested in JV with me, feel free to let me know. Since I’m in China, I could get you anything in a better term as a local. I could even do it free, if you let me understand how you sell it well throgh AMS so we help each other to succeed.
I can come up with a million ideas for things to sell on FBA that would work, but I personally don’t have the time or energy to do them all. But it all starts with a good product. I get samples from overseas that most people would live with, but I always go back and have them improve on some aspect that would make it even better. That makes all teh difference.
If you have a budget, every little thing can help. However, I would wait to you have a website. I don’t know if people will buy your product from a PR. It’s made to bring attention and hopefully some other media coverage.
In other words, spend your $3500 on testing products and working with FBA and that’ll be all the training you need. I guess I don’t really understand what training is going to do for most people? Find a product opportunity, find the source for the product, plug it into the FBA calculator, and if you can make money then buy it and send it in. As you progress, the white label opportunities will reveal itself.
Now, this wasn’t always the case. There was a time (not too long ago) when ASM member access to the training and community did provide a real advantage over non-members. Information about how to succeed just wasn’t easily found anywhere else; however, a lot of effective strategies leaked over time, eroding the advantage that once existed.
My thoughts on blasting out links to Amazon listing do in fact work, whether you or anyone else likes to disbelieve it. I shouldnt say blast, but build authority links using the ASM tool or any type of link building software.
Thanks, Yohan, for your input and yes, you are of course right. I don’t really have a problem with that though because all marketers are doing that sort of research the whole time if they have the know-how …aren’t we?!! I don’t begrudge them that because I do trust that they are basically ‘ethical’ guys and whatever they are learning I think will mostly be funnelled back into the strategies that they will be sharing with us.
I think the most noticeable difference between the two is the new one is all about private labeling with wider profit margins rather than the former one which was dropshipping? There, I just saved everyone $3,400+

Are you sure your primary image performs best? How do you know your pricing is correct? Maybe you should reduce the price a little bit to increase conversions, without eating into your profit margin. Or maybe you should increase your prices. Unless you test, you just don’t know.
