There’s Matt, a truck driver who had no idea what he was doing. Matt expressed concern about knowing “nothing about marketing,” so he just started a business in something that he was interested in. Shortly after, he had a six figure business, and he had investors courting him and offering him more than $300,000 cash for this business.
For the person that asked if I was private labeling, yes that is what I am doing and what the course teaches. If you sell someone else’s product, you will be at the mercy of a price war and your profit margins will be extremely limited, so I only recommend going the private labeling route because you are the only seller and can dictate your price and profit margins without someone undercutting you.
No one but my team can make the claims that we can. We’ve been teaching serious entrepreneurs how to succeed selling physical products online for well over a decade with an impeccable reputation – and there’s no “upsell” – buy our course once for a few hundred bucks and you are “in for life”.
CleanTAS 378: Amazon’s NEW Early Incentivized Review Program and What Does This MEAN for Sellers? Have you noticed Amazon’s recent roll out of their new early incentivized review program? If you didn’t notice it, you aren’t alone! Amazon kind of quietly rolled out this new program that could make a huge impact for non-brand registered Amazon s 6/28/2017 Free View in iTunes
I’m at my wits end with being broke and will have to pull some strings to afford the course but I am so worried that this is another course that gives you everything at surface value and doesn’t really help you make the money they claim.
So I have no product in inventory and it looks like it will be another week before I am up and running. I will go ahead and post another review in 30 days that should be more helpful with some real stats and figures, but here are a couple more things I have learned since the last review….I’ll keep you updated sooner if things change before the 30 days.
Take a few minutes to meet Brian, one of my past Tribe members, who took his business from $0 to $30,000 a month in just three months, and then onto as much as $700,000 per month in the year that followed.
Big brands are always trying to compete with Amazon on price – if you’re a savvy shopper, you can see where the big brands are beating Amazon, and take advantage of that by selling to people who aren’t doing their homework. Get it?
While that is a valid perspective, the real answer is “infringement and liability vary greatly depending upon the product you are trying to sell”. It’s also a complicated issue and there’s no way to give blanket advice that works across industries and products.
Your review of ASM is spot on. The training and support are average at best, I did not feel that my success really matters to Amazing Selling Machine. I have spent 6 months working at this and have lost $5,000 on this mediocre training and another $10,000 on product, shipping, etc.
A course brings you school, what do you think? I suggest you consider it carefully. Although the price is quit high but let’s compared it with the benefit you get. It is not wasteful. I hope you can find information I have provided is useful for your decision making. Thank you for your reading and good luck!
Let me clarify, 95% of the SEO that ASM teach’s no longer works and is simply a waste of time, free press releases, spinning articles, weird linking schemes etc etc are all 5 years or more out of date and are killed by the 2012 and 2013 Google updates. The only tactic that has any merit these days is videos. If any of the spammy tactics do work it will be only for a very short time, but the feedback I’ve read from people in ASM who tried them is that they seemed to have no effect at all
My first inventory batch had 516 units and it was completely sold out after about one and half month. And remember, I am a complete beginner who knew nothing about selling on Amazon before joining ASM. The system really works!
Hello and thank you for stopping by Worth Review ! Here you will find Powerful tools, Marketing courses, plugins and many Internet Marketing Softwares tested by me, Emma Trinh, creator of this product review blog.
I have to admit it, I was one of those people who shouted and said this method/system would not work, in fact I wanted to prove a point, I bought this course to actually compare it to Proven amazon course (I am a current member of.) The problem I saw with PAC is the leg work that is required, trust me. I went out early hrs in the morning scouting and buy 20 items a day. This should not be a one man show, this is what was lacking in the course at the time, I believe it has been updated now.
Scott runs the Amazing Seller podcast, a top 25 business podcast on iTunes, and is known for making 47K in 90 days selling on Amazon. Scott is an incredible teacher and runs his own Amazon selling training class as well.
I started selling and found alibaba organically. This podcast takes what I was doing previously and provides and an opportunity to see it through a new lens. I never considered some of the intricacies in the way that it is presented in this podcast. If you have the desire to push yourself further and want more out of life you now have hundreds of mini seminars at your fingertips. Thank you for this podcast. I started on episode one and am working my way forward. I had no idea there were these selling communities. You were featured on a small business podcast and that is how I found you.
Having said all that, the opportunities are ripe. In most good categories, there aren’t that many products with 10+ reviews. You could be the “brand” name product with just a little marketing push. Reviews=Sales on Amazon.
My best products have margins in the 45-50% range and when I define gross margins, I’m amazing selling machine videos about taking the NET proceeds from Amazon for each unit sold, subtracting the all-in per unit cost, and coming up with the gross margin dollars. Take that gross margin $ and divide by the NET proceed from Amazon and you come up with 45-50%. I will say though, that those particular products require me to be spending 40K per shipment. But that’s why able to make 45-50% on it; because other people won’t do it.
This is a new training program that will reveal to you the exact strategies I used to get hundreds of Amazon reviews on various products, in a short period of time. You need Amazon reviews to get your product to sell and out-rank your competition, so this training is critical to your success!
I am looking to move forward with Amazon, but don’t want to source products by hunting down liquidations and garage sales. That is the one facet of ASM that is attractive….but I’d like to find a cheaper alternative.
His name is Shawn Hart and he’s spent the last 17 years selling 9 figures worth of products sourced exclusively from China. He doesn’t use Alibaba.com or any of the other traditional means that ASMers use to find products.
If you are someone who isn’t succeeding with internet marketing, the $3,000 ASM course is unlikely to be “the thing” that changes your life. As with MOST courses, these things help people who already get it do better, they don’t really take many people from zero to success, those really are the exceptions, not the rule.
In the market, there are many online courses that promise to bring you anything you need. But what you should trust in? You may have to spend much time and money for many courses and agency to work for you, but the results still make your worried.
An entire module is dedicated to the product selection process (this is the most tedious step of the process, be patient while you’re searching, but do not overthink it. You will not be perfect from your first product. Just pick one & go on.)
While nothing is perfect, to say the FB community is pure gold is imo an understatement. And while there are clearly people who do not succeed, there are so many success stories (to varying degrees) that keep popping up in the FB group (from people I know are real since I watched them when they still had basic questions and difficulties) that it is clear that as long as you don’t quit, you know that sooner or later you’ll get there as well.
