Hi Guys, I’ve joined ASM 5 months ago through Jason fladlien’s mainly because he offers ”The Guarantee of profit”. I was skeptical that this business model would work for me and the guarantee of profit gave me the illusion of security.
I purchased this program back in March and after spending several months on research, identifying products, and interacting with manufacturers, came to the conclusion that not all that glitters is gold. Don’t get me wrong, the program does offer some good information, but it really glosses over the amount of additional cost that it takes to get anything off the ground. The tutorials offered are not detailed enough to warrant the high price. I am now trying to figure out a way to obtain at least a partial refund from them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
However, after thinking about this, I don’t consider this to be a downside at all. I like the fact that there is a high barrier of entry for people to sell on Amazon, as that means there will be less competition and it will be easier for people like me to get in early and take advantage of this growing trend before everyone else.
The purpose of this P.A.C.E. ®-accredited five-part webinar series is to provide the fundamentals of antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) in the clinical microbiology laboratory. The series delivers foundational information on antibiotic classes, their modes of action, spectrum of activity, breakpoint determination and interpretations, and more. Additional sessions discuss the methods used and theory behind manual and automated susceptibility testing. This short webinar series provides an introductory curriculum for laboratory technologists to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to perform and interpret antimicrobial susceptibility and effectively report results.

Either that, or as a long time seller via both FBA and in house fulfillment, I’ve really missed some important aspects of selling on Amazon because in my experience only sellers with deep pockets freedom mentor success stories to live on crumbs generate any sales.
I rarely take the time to comment on forums, but sometimes the “Lack” mindset of “Warriors” is just too overwhelming. Why some people feel they need to comment about that which they know nothing about is perplexing.
Here’s your chance. Matt Clark & Jason Katzenback, the founders of Amazing.com, just released the FIRST of four powerful videos showing you how YOU can build a REAL, long-term business selling physical products.
As with every business, there are a million different unexpected things that can and will happen. You will always make some mistakes and more importantly there will be always be the very common “this makes absolutely no sense” amazon-issues, dirty play from competitors, idiot buyers, IP laws, liability issues, shipping problems, quality problems, dishonest suppliers, problems with outsourced labor, complicated taxes etc. etc.
I’ve already located 3-4 suppliers and have ordered samples. I’ve been researching shipping logistics, finer points of FBA, and liability insurance. This really isn’t rocket science. Save the thousands they are charging for information and invest it into your inventory.

I didn’t go into detail but I’m actually very well versed in IP law for a business owner without a law degree. I’m not over thinking anything. I’m just providing a more detailed answer to the question.
I watched your video and your comments above don’t change the fact that (a) many of your points in the video had little merit; (b) you diverted people to another product where you would earn an affiliate commission; and (c) you decided to post a link to your video “review” here, but it obviously wasn’t only about helping your reputation/fans/followers/readers/tribe. In fact, the post was ultimately deleted by moderators, presumably because they found it to be too self promotional.
Not sure how these guys Selling on Amazon, But by Testing, I have about 200 products/Items (at competitive prices) Listed on Amazon, maybe 1 sold for entire Year, So List the Item for Sale at Amazon obviously means Nothing. Not to say creating your own product first, that’s a big guessing game, IMHO, would you ever sell a single piece? Maybe not.

Your product arrives at Amazon’s warehouse, and your item is for sale under the official brand sales page on Amazon. This is important – you are an independent seller, but you get to harness the power of the official brand page’s advertising and traffic.
If you have a list that you can market that product to and send them directly to Amazon, this makes the job a whole heck of a lot easier. If you don’t, then you probably need to low-ball your price or figure out a way to drive traffic to the listings. Once you start to get some sales/reviews going, you can slowly raise your price.

What you will also realize is that you need initial investment of at least $1000 – $4000 to start. But to be super realistic $1000 is not enough. If you want to get desired product most suppliers in China will work with minimum order quantity (MOQ) of 500 pieces. For lower quantity the prices are higher and many manufacturers are not even willing to work with you. So here are all the various costs to consider:
I gave it a few more shots with other products with the same results. I know people that were able to get a good product on their first try but in reality there is nothing in the training that will show you how to do this and not fail. The training will just show you how to find products and suppliers, methods you’re probably already aware of.
This IS the real thing. No they don’t teach you everything, no they are not perfect, but between what they teach you, the methodology they make you go through and (most importantly imo) the community, there is nothing like this out there that I have encountered.
If you can afford ASM, the course + the right bonuses can provide excellent value. Alternatively, you could forego a bonus offer and still obtain high quality training by purchasing another course at a lower cost.
You will also get access to an exclusive Facebook Mastermind Group that I’ve set up, where you can interact with myself and other internet marketers to get your questions answered, network with other successful Amazon sellers, and have others to hold you accountable.

Now, this wasn’t always the case. There was a time (not too long ago) when ASM member access to the training and community did provide a real advantage over non-members. Information about how to succeed just wasn’t easily found anywhere else; however, a lot of effective strategies leaked over time, eroding the advantage that once existed.
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.
I did the same thing for awhile and had great success with it, but it was always an issue with quality control for me with my suppliers who were willing to drop ship. They had good products, but most of the suppliers I used couldn’t consistently deliver quality products that didn’t break down. I think I had around 30% defect rate, which isn’t good for customer returns and service.
This is not specific to Amazon, because I acquired my liability insurance for other reasons, prior to selling on Amazon. It’s great solely selling online with very few requirements, but when you want to get into other opportunities these things are required (for example, selling wholesale TO retailers) so it’s nothing that someone should be afraid of if they intend to build a sustainable and thriving business.
Thanks to Scott and the information off his podcasts i’ve sold just over 100 units in 40 days and got 43 reviews so far and my sales rank is 4,000. Once I get to 100 reviews I am hoping my item will be solid.
