2. James Boyd was right. There is definitely a lot more competition on Amazon now with other ASM’rs but you can still make good money on Amazon with this course. They train you to look at the top 100 products but after seeing all of the competition now, I chose to go beyond the top 100 and found success, not the 6 figures a month success but enough to satisfy me. My original product I launched was in the top 100 and I have seen my sales decrease a little over the last 6 months as the competition grew from the last two ASM course releases.
BBB promotes truth in advertising by contacting advertisers whose claims conflict with the BBB Code of Advertising. These claims come to our attention from our internal review of advertising, consumer complaints and competitor challenges. BBB asks advertisers to substantiate their claims, change ads to make offers more clear to consumers, and remove misleading or deceptive statements.
Affiliate marketing also has allowed me to create an asset. I too didn’t like the idea of writing to make money online, but when you write about subjects you’re interested in or have a passion for, it’s not all that difficult and actually can be very rewarding.
I’m assuming you are asking me because you know that I earn 6 figures a month. I currently have 5 products (but i’m going to be increasing that soon as within ASM there are a number of new strategies being created as a result of recent market changes).
I have always been interested in online business and creating something that allows me the freedom to do what I like, when I like. However, I never really knew where to get started and what’s more I didn’t have the confidence to follow through on my ideas.

Thanks for the great laugh…I’ll take that as the ultimate compliment that you know someone who illegally got a copy of my PAC course and then felt so bad that they PAID for it after the fact! That’s fantastic on so many levels… Thanks for posting that.
What impressed me the most about the program is how detailed and step-by-step everything is. Everything was SO EASY to go through and take action on, that I believe that ANYONE can succeed with this program.
Over the last 1-2 years the competition for typical private “easy to source private label products” on amazon.com has exploded. The last 6 months alone the competition has probably increased exponentially because of ASM. Not saying that there are no more opportunities out there, and there will of course always be new opportunities for “all-new products”. Those who are first on the market will usually make a killing.
It’s estimated that there are 30 to 40 million Prime members in America alone. 2-day shipping and similar (and often lower) prices means that people are using Amazon to buy the same items that sometimes get sent to the clearance section at big brand stores.
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.

Hi Jordon, I must say, as usual you hit the nail smack dab on the head, let’s use a little common sense here, does anyone really want to spend a ton of money for similar, proven training you could get for much less ….hmmm well let’s weigh this out, if you were to purchase all three of your other suggestions you would get a wider variety of training and 3 different perspectives for far less than purchasing ASM. …. I’m just saying, do the math and save your money to buy http://entertainment.dailydispatcher.com/news/amazing-selling-machine-course-evergreen-launch-2018-start-an-ecommerce-business/0045744/ Thanks buddy for all you do to help others.
As someone who joined during ASM1 and who is still not where he wanted to be (I’m only making $1000-$1500 a month after expenses right now, though I am of course working on changing that) I’d advise you to stay – IF you can afford the cost of the course (meaning that if after 6 months have gone by you still are not “making it” because you are stuck at some point or simply taking your time, you won’t be in any financial trouble) AND you have several thousands spare you can spend on inventory (yes it’s possible to start with far less, and you might end up needing far less, but this gives you greater freedom in your product choice).
Hi Mac – no doubt, finding reliable suppliers in China can be a big wrestling match BUT when you do find one, it gets easier. I was turned on to sourcing from U.S. suppliers via ProvenPrivateLabel (which is now included in Proven Amazon Course.) And my up-front investment in products was $500 (versus, say, $3,000 for my minimum order quantity in China, albeit for a different product). Like any other course/system, ASM *can* work if you stay committed and keep trying.
I have recently bought in retail stores some high quality products made in Italy and Germany at prices at least as low as lesser quality similar products made in China. Eastern European countries are good places to source certain products, and buyers should consider other places such as Turkey and Brazil.
For example the average inventory costs for product 1 are most often somewhere between $500 and $1000. This figure comes from the over 150 new ASMers I have coached through the learning process. I have direct access to the figures.
Thanks for all your input, can you give a ball park number on what you are spending to get a product ordered and shipped to Amazon, along with the time frame once the order is placed with the wholesaler. I know every product is different in price, I am looking at what additional capital might be needed.
If you want to sell unlimited products on Amazon (which I assume you would), you will need to signup as a professional seller on Amazon Seller Central. It’s a paid service (about $40/month), and there’s a one month free access when you sign-up.
Exec summary – sufficient info to get you started, not as easy or lucrative as presented, expect to have to fill in a lot of missing pieces yourself, certainly not worth anything like the asking price
Thanks again Will for leaving your personal feedback on ASM. When you feel up to making money online again, please go with either one of my top recommendations to get an honest education and supportive system.
– Pricing I set inline with the current Best Seller / one thing I wasnt expecting was that the consumer must spend over £10 to get my item sent FREE! well time will tell If I messed up on that one but I think enough people use Prime and Amazon are pushing this on TV ads now.
