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.
I’ve been a full-time info product marketer for years and have always wanted to get into the physical product market. I never really saw a course that covered this in the detail I desired…until now.
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!
Good point as well about Amazing Selling Machine dripping their educational content to their members. They do this for a reason, to keep you into the program long enough to pass up your chance for a refund on their 30 day refund policy. If they keep you dangling in their program for a month, they don’t have to return your 5K.
Probably the most obvious thing is the price, the Amazing Selling Machine training is NOT cheap. BUT – when you consider that something like lawschool or medical school can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars and take you 8 years to complete…the price tag and 8 weeks of training doesn’t seem that bad anymore.
The minute I received an email from Greg Jacobs of his bonus to anyone buying through his affiliate link, I knew rightaway it is going to be a high-end product since he only endorses products of those category. I may be wrong but that is the impression he gave me based on his past promo emails.
Both Jason and Matt come from the info product world and have successfully transitioned into doing well on Amazon. So for info marketers who have had some success…these are the right people to learn from.
I have been following this thread since last year when I was interested to sell on Amazon FBA. I’m from a country in Europe which is allowed to sell on Amazon. I was wondering if someone who bought the ASM course could give me some tips how to start selling on Amazon FBA from a country outside US. Do I have to register a company in US or not? Can I buy fast lane review from China and have them sent to Amazon FBA (while I’m personally located in Europe) ?
In my opining, the best, most realistically priced training program to sell private label products on Amazon is Skip’s Complete Amazon Marketing System. He will show you how to get the job done for a tiny fraction of the price that the Amazing Selling Machine charges.
Hi Merry. Thanks for your feedback. From what I understand the main reason someone would buy ASM is simply saving time to kick start Amazon business and start making money literally after 2-3 months. I mean if that is the case – then this is pretty good investment. Another reason ASM is legitimate program – they keep on bringing these launches and get a ton of sign ups and so far I can’t find very negative feedback.
Side note, they are opening the doors again in October, visit the Facebook Launch Event @ https://www.facebook.com/events/498865126848262/ to keep up to date on the latest re-launch of the Amazing Selling Machine Course.
Let’s invent a fictitious company. Let’s call it… Azzurent. Azzurent is similar to Walmart – lots of branches, lots of general, cheap products, and a steady, healthy flow of customers to each and every branch 24/7/365.
3- People care about that. Do you care what brand spatula you use? No. Maybe, maaayyyyybe when I go to the store i’ll pick OXO over something else, but really, who cares. Your supplements– people care.
“In March of 2016, we launched our first product on Amazon. In our first 12 months, we sold over $528,000 in products! We’ve averaged over $80k in sales for the past 4 months and are on pace to sell over $1 million dollars in products this year – only our second year in business.
It’s all relative, but the value you’ll see is largely based on the individual, not the course. I consider the cost to be cheap relative to what you get. I make more than double the cost of the course EVERY WEEK as a result of what I’ve learned. In fact, I personally emailed Matt Clark at one point and suggested he should be charging upwards of $10k for the course going forward because I think it’s underpriced (he declined my suggestion).
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.
The coolest thing is, this course is NOT for procrastonators. By the end of week 1, you’ll have a list of product opportunities. By the end of week 2, you’ll have orderered product samples to physically examine. Don’t worry, you’ll not be alone doing this, you’ll have the full support of the team of mentors, AND the other students doing this along with you!
That being said, like Jim Cockrum says, you’ve got to be careful with your approach. The course does teach a couple of things that I believe are borderline in putting your account in danger, so I avoid that and only do what I’m personally comfortable with.
We all have different situations and it may or may not be the right time, but from what I’ve been seeing, the course has benefited more than less. It’s a matter of whether your $4k is more or less valuable than the course. I think for the majority $4k is hard to give up…

What I like about your review here is that you are mostly just saying “open your eyes” and look around. Explore the alternatives before investing too heavily. It reminds me of the old Apple ad about the Lemmings walking blindfolded off a cliff.
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.
You always have to remember that the people pushing these products are getting a HUGE PAYOUT. The last time ASM launched, the financial incentives were huge and they likely are this time. Keep that in mind.
I remember when he used to post in the main Facebook group..and he was an excellent contributor then. It did kind of surprise me how he kind of had this big podcast out of nowhere. I thought he genuinely wanted to be helpful, but also thought he enjoys the attention/spotlight as well…and he later confirmed that.
Building a successful Amazon business can be done but it takes time. It takes nurturing and consistency. Make a 90-Day plan. What will it take to make $100 every day? Work backwards. It takes time and sacrifice in the beginning. Maybe you have to watch a little less Netflix. Maybe you have to skip some parties. However when you have the monthly cash flow coming in, it’ll totally be worth it.
No, I’m not in this course. I just wanted to hear your thoughts about this so I could make a judgment on whether I missed something or not. It seems like it’s possible to achieve some success even without this course.
