I look at it this way. I drop ship items. I can sell them on a site along with my supplier that has a lower price. Also along with multiple other sellers. I sold a mattress pad at about a $10 profit 37 times last month along with about 20 other sellers, including the supplier that has a much lower price.
Our only goal with ASM is to make sure you build a successful business. To make sure this happens, we’ve brought on some of our very successful ASM members to help you start and grow your new business.
I was confused further when someone I approached from ASM said I could have the ASM7 entire course at a single payment for $997. In between that and your article, I think it is wiser for me to stay put and work on building an online business via Affiliate Marketing.
NOW try to get a price anywhere near a sell-able item as you request a small amount to test the market, not so easy if oftentimes impossible. “ACME” spatulas who already sells thousands has already negotiated with their suppliers and has already gotten a price you could not hope to obtain, unless you buy similar massive quantities.

Good luck to all those who decided to donate their hard earned cash to ASM and its affiliates. Talk about overkill: persistence and not taking no for an answer, these salesmen must take first prize. Thankfully it will all end in a couple of hours, I hope……………until perhaps an extension to ‘help’ to relieve cash from all those victims who could not get in because of the last minute rush. Goodbye til the next relaunch

And for those that don’t want to burden of buying in bulk for products that may or may not sell and with limited budgets, affiliate marketing is a much better way to go. For that, I recommend the best online training center called Wealthy Affiliate. As an affiliate marketer, I still make my online commissions without all the risk of buying products.
You do not run an “Amazon business.” You run a BUSINESS. Amazon just happens to be your channel for getting sales and customers. >Matt helped me see that there are no magic buttons, there are just products and customers.
Lastly, I would say the now days, the whole Amazon Seller biz model is not nearly as attractive as it was several years ago. Competition has gotten incredible fierce and of course there is the inherent issues with the Amazon biz model.
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.
CleanTAS 263 : 3 TIPS to Overcome FEAR of Choosing the Wrong Product (Simple Process) Many people see the value and power of selling private label products on Amazon.

The only products that have no real competition are patented and protected from “branding” by the manufacturer. A few of ASM sample “hot Items” are already patented by the manufacturer, try to make a similar design, and get sued. Look up the shaker bottle with the mesh ball and Gripmaster.
Importing and drop-shipping are a bit more risk and will involve buying products, so I’d start with affiliate marketing. If you’ve got the ability to spend a good 6 months working at it, you can get it to start producing regular income, if you can then work at it full time, you will be amazed at what you can create.
Scott and the group are outstanding. They do an excellent job at keeping everyone updated with current information. Scott lets you know about any changes as soon as they come out. Currently Best Sourc…e Available! See More
Clues about why ASM costs as much as a used car abound in several of Matt Clark’s interviews with online magazines such as Under30CEO, where the very title of the article is ‘The No-Brainer Secret to Success: High Margins.’
All the knowledge in the world will not make you one cent if you do not take action on it. I’ve done importing and affiliate marketing, and have taken the courses with Amazing Selling Machine and read 2 of Skip McGraths training programs, and so I wanted to give my opinion on your review and suggestions.
We’ve been able to take 3 vacations in the past year including a first ever trip for our kids to Disneyland. We’re so grateful for the success that ASM set us up for and we are recommending this course to all our friends and family.”
