CleanTAS 321: Zero to $1 Million in Sales Selling Other Brands Products (Husband and Wife Team) Are you ready to get started with selling online? How great would it be to hear from someone who has recently found the success you are looking for? You might be wondering what does selling online look like, how can you get started? 2/15/2017 Free View in iTunes
BUT China will still be there as the world’s biggest factory for quite a while yet. That is not to say that the transition to lower cost countries has not begun. This is why I advise considering other countries in addition to China.
I’m going to take you from the VERY beginning of my Amazing Selling Machine journey, because I started from zero. Yes, today I do about $500,000 per month on Amazon, but I started off making about two sales a day. Yes, I started at zero, and you will too.
Finally, let’s say you don’t live in the U.S. but still want to work with Amazon- or are dreaming of one day “working-from-home” as an ex-pat bumming around on some tropical beach. Jim Cockrum’s Proven Amazon Course is ideal for anyone who lives outside of the states and wants to order products wholesale from other countries. Jim also offers an online community, additional strategy guides and online tools- among other goodies.

As everyone else who got in the program, I watch each and every training video that was released. The most frustrating part of this business is how long it takes for your actual product to arrive at Amazon. For me personally, it took about 10 weeks to get my product sourced, designed, labeled and shipped to Amazon.
I think you can use the Amazon market place to find some ideas for hot products, but there’s a lot of pieces to the puzzle to make it successful. Another important aspect that I mention in this review is the competition in Amazon. You’ve got to look closely at the products you select.

This is obviously really bothering Jordan that people keep poking holes in his story. I’m assuming he doesn’t like getting called to the carpet and questioned; after all, his company is Honest Online Selling.
I only listened to 1-10, but that was kinda painful. I really did not like how Scott insults 98% of his audience by saying that we won’t take any action. Not a big fan of how we’re misled into being he did $47k in 90 days as if he were a rookie (he had five years of e-commerce experience going in). REALLY not a big fan of how TWICE Scott insinuates that the gentleman with the bad reviews did something wrong. The guy can NOT be held responsible for getting into a competitive market which is the item that Scott cited as his mistake. Repetitive content (the 3 emails) also got old. Last, in 1-10 he spent about 5-10 minutes on how to find a good product to sell. The rest of the content is all about once your going. The only reason for my review is because Scott asks for it. I have no ill will. Just not for me…
Hi Janeiro, Amazing Selling Machine will open again on April 22. If you sign up my email list, you can start watching the pre-launch video from around April 13th. I heard the registration fee will go up, but I think it’s a small fee to pay compared with what you can make with it.
There comes a time peter when you have to commit following a course through and making it work instead of discarding it after 5 mins. those like i said that get refunds on things are generally non action takers and who more often than not are always looking for that shiny object and push button millionaire. im sorry to say but making money takes a lot of hard work. so i always go by this saying.
That said, not sure if I would recommend your average Joe to pay $4k for the upcoming course in April. Competition keeps increasing as always. Rapid influx of ASM-sellers has probably made this process 2-4 times as fast over the last year in PL type categories.
If you can find a decent manufacturer here then you might be able to get away with spending less and turning the product quicker, but these days it’s more likely you’ll only be able to find a US based distributor.
It did better in November. January we had an issue with supply and couldn’t get product made quick enough. This was due to our unexpected volume in December, we had issue getting inventory for two weeks.
5. I have already used some of the methods that they taught in the initial videos that were free to everyone to identify product opportunities. I used a method that someone else taught me to see how much of that product is being sold daily. If I did half the volume that these products are doing, I will make back the investment in this course within 1 month.
My point (again) because I won’t let my integrity (qualified by hundreds or thousands of fans/followers/readers) go undefended: If my objective was to make money and I didn’t care about my reputation/fans/followers/readers, I would have promoted ASM (I was an approved affiliate). Again if the angry and miserable (1% of the http://www.wicz.com/story/37326182/news actually listened to/watched my review, you would have seen that my potential revenue from promoting ASM was at least $17,000, and it could have been a lot more. My affiliate earnings from promoting the other courses/ebooks in a separate video was a mere fraction of what I could have earned promoting ASM. I guess full disclosure wasn’t enough. To appease the 1%, I should have just said in the video, “If you want to sell on Amazon, I have nothing to suggest to you.” Which of course would have saved my tribe/followers/fans the whopping $27 to $99 and/or prevented informing them of ASM course alternatives. Boy was I short-sighted on that one.
In September 2013, I started receiving emails from every “guru” and his dog about the Amazing Selling Machine (ASM) by Jason Katzenback and Matt Clark (which is not surprising after I found out that about $2000 out of the $4000 price for ASM is paid out as affiliate commission to people who promote it). The promo videos were certainly well done and I was intrigued by the idea of creating and selling my own private label products on Amazon. I was ready to join in after going through the long series of sales pitch videos, then they dropped the price bombshell.
A few years ago, Perry Belcher said to me, “Ryan, if I were you, I’d focus on selling stuff – real stuff that people use.” Although it took me a few years, I finally had to admit that he was right. I then took the plunge and dove into Amazing Selling Machine.
A very good question. Like most people I had dreamed for years of having the perfect business that would allow myself and my family to help pay the bills and enjoy a few of the nicer things in life. I tried many business opportunities over the years but most did not succeed.
What this means is that, if you buy the program and buy inventory, market it, and do not make money following their methods, ASM will refund you the full cost of the program and they will reimburse you for any money you spent on inventory, up to $10,000.
CleanTAS 246 : How to Get More “REAL Reviews” to Help Increase Your Sales One of the most important parts of running a successful Amazon private label business is making sure you are establishing your brand and products as high quality and reputable. A HUGE part of doing that is getting honest reviews from your customers. 8/24/2016 Free View in iTunes
I’ve heard of the Amazing Selling Machine, but like you said, the cost of the product is a little off putting. Then again, you’re paying to learn how to build a successful business on Amazon so it makes sense.
There’s no way that ASM is a fully comprehensive guide. It never has been. It’s a great course, but there are still plenty of gaps that need to be filled in. That’s not meant to be a knock on the training (which is excellent), but it’s just the nature of number of decisions you have to make in this business. I’ve personally coached hundreds of ASM members at this point and, based on direct feedback from my affiliate *students*, I can say with pretty high confidence that there is still a lot to know beyond the core training. Months after the core training has finished, I’m still answering questions on a daily basis.
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
Thank Jim, I did see that and read everything about it before hand. Amazon had pointed out in an email as long as the product being offered, marketed or links within the email can only be from Amazon.com -.co or other Amazon places.
The Amazing Selling Machine program is really amazing! People like Brendan Morris have made over $30 million in the last year. You can watch his Story in this Facebook Page: Here’s the Live Video: https://AmazingSellingFacebookSessions.com/
Everyone has to figure this out for themselves…I spent much more than the cost of a ASM on something Jim recommended and I ended up being so pissed off because I thought it was terrible. I respect him a lot, but it just didn’t work for me. ASM on the other hand did work for me, but it might not for you. There will be no way to know in advance, so you’ve got to do your best to figure it out and at least be comfortable with the return policy just in case.
A guy who drove an old Ford pickup his whole life figured out this stuff long ago…importing cheap goods and selling for a higher price. He opened thousands of stores. I should be able to figure out how to get a few products stocked and listed on Amazon. I’ve done extremely well in the past selling on eBay. FBA may have a few technical hurdles, but nothing anything a halfway intelligent person can’t figure out pretty quickly.
