Earning $4k a month is a fair starting point for a complete beginner (as a comparison many new ASMers would be earning that within about 4 weeks or so of having their product in amazon, 8 weeks later it would be more than that).
Jessica, i’m afraid you cannot get ASM from amazon, or anywhere else, it is the best training, bar none, not available to the public (and has been restricted only to those inside ASM for the last 18 months). However, look out for an announcement very soon.
4) It seems like they are going for the money grab, because before I took the course I believe I heard them mention that it would be updated as things change, but what i didn’t realize is that it would be updated through a newsletter that they would be charging on a monthly basis ($97 per month). Now you DON’T have to buy this, but if you want the current information that isn’t in the course, then you will have to. Also, they came out with a Facebook course to teach more people how to market on Facebook. So they are using paid mediums (newsletters and more courses) in order to update the course. I guess i shouldn’t be upset about it, as I don’t have anything against these guys trying to make a buck, but SHEESH!! You just took $3500 from me, and now you are trying to get even more? And all this within 5 months of me buying the course?? At least give me a little of that extra content for free for a full year before you start hitting me up for more money!
Of course, I can not tell you many details about these tactics, but you will get what you need to achieve the success you have always dreamed of. All you need to do is to follow the system especially if you are a newbiees.
If you want to make money online and start an online business without any risk, then affiliate marketing is your cup of tea. Especially if you can take some time and dedicate it to creating a niche website business. You’ll save yourself thousands of dollars. It may take $500 dollars for your first year of creating an affiliate based online 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.
In the sales video Matt will say that there are people in ASM that have had products they have been trying to sell for years and their sales took off after getting ASM. That sounds great but is very misleading, these people already have a product.
REVERSE ENGINEERING AMAZON RANKINGS – in this training we reveal 11 specific ways that have produced Amazon “page one” profits. Meaning when people search on Amazon, there you are in front of thousands of them daily!
Now once you have that product that has 100+ reviews averaging 4.5 or 5 stars, then you can really start pouring it on. But I suspect that most people don’t have the mix of skills to actually get them to that place.

I’m making between 10-12K per month… I only had $250 to start with, so I’m loving this business model… After graduating from school, I couldn’t find a job. And that’s how I got into looking for ways to make money.
ASM 264L. Natural Resource Management Systems Laboratory. 1 Credit: Laboratory to complement concepts introduced in ASM 264. Topics include land survey, maps, rainfall and runoff, erosion control, drainage and irrigation, and costs and returns. Co-req: ASM 264 or NRM 264 or SOIL 264. Prereq: Students must be ASM majors only.
Other things to be aware of is products that have a history of recalls or falling under a category that often has recalls. It’s one reason I would not (personally) get into children’s products– too many regulations and hazards.
When you set-up your PPC campaign, use the auto-campaign feature. It will send you traffic for certain keywords. Spend about $25 per day and let it run for 7 days. Pull the report. It will show you all the keywords Amazon used to send you traffic. You will see how many impressions, clicks and sales you receives. You can see the actually keywords people typed to find your listing. Take the high performing keywords and plug them back into your listing. Optimize it. You get so much data even if you don’t sell. If that’s the case go back. It may be a conversion issue with your copy, bad images or the price.
ASM is not worth it. Paid for it in 2013, lost $5000. They show you how easy it is to “find” products to sell. This is very misleading. They showing how to identify products that can do well on amazon, I do give them that. However, finding a product is not easy. You can find 100s of suppliers for any product, that’s not the issue. The issue is finding a supplier that will give you a quality product (with quality I mean as good as whatever is sold on amazon) at a price where you can make a profit. Tried that, ended up spending lots of money on samples and got either terrible quality compared to what is sold on amazon or the price was so high that I would have lost money trying to sell it. Tried this with a few products and then decided to cut my losses. Even though they have a 30 day trial where I could get a full refund, the part where they show you how to acquire the product is in week 4. So, by the time I got my samples and realized I amazing selling machine log in screwed, it was too late for a refund. This product may be useful for someone with deep pockets or someone who already has a product. If someone needs buy in installments, they really shouldn’t, they will end up losing their money. I would say if you have at least 20k to spare, this course may work for you.
Use the 999 trick. Take your competitors product. Click Add to Cart. In the quantity box put 999. Amazon will come back and tell you something like “sorry, we only have 630 units available.” DO NOT purchase! Record the time. At the exact time the very next day, go and do it again. If it says only 620 available, then you know they sold 10 units within a 24 hour period. Do this for the next 5-7 days. Record all the numbers and get the average. Compare their BSR to how many products they’re selling each day. That’s a baseline for products in that category. Every category is different.
Why wouldn’t they? Easy money is easy money. Having said that, if I were a betting man I’d say he really isn’t pulling those numbers, and it’s basically a made up story to get people to buy from his affiliate link.

However, as with any business opportunity, you must Take Action. An Amazon business will not start or run itself just because you bought a course. Set up a schedule to put in the time required to make this a success and document all your goals and plans in a daily business journal. Join the Facebook group and participate in group activities to broaden your knowledge.
And it was all over a technicality not a violation (not submitting a data feed for product import because I had decided to just enter the products manually as over 90% of them were existing ASINs). Amazon’s support is horrible. They do have phone support, mostly incompetent. I still sell on Amazon but it is not, and has never been, my only online sales channel.
Nine individual lessons will converse your performance checklist, your Amazon Sponored Ad listings, your content marketing strategy, and Amazon marketing service. The best thing I get here is “The Raving Fan Customers service system.”
I have a few friends who wanted to try out, after seeing my small success. But I told them not to join (due the expensive course fee). I am now working with them on a partnership basis on their amazon business, and it’s a win-win situation.
I think you’d be surprised how much you don’t know. I’d pay $4k in a heartbeat for the stuff I learned through the forums (outside of the official training). The reason the launch videos and affiliates are giving stuff away for free is because there’s still tremendous value in the stuff they don’t show.
This course is strictly focused on wholesale sourcing, different ways to do market research to determine what products to source for Amazon, as well as how to spot pockets of opportunity, and consumer trends.
