Oh and here’s the other interesting bit of info…when I was cranking out product and I hit 25k….my product made it to the bottom of page 1 for 1 afternoon but has kind of just permanently stayed at number 19-22 on page 2….. so I was selling a TON- on PAGE 2!!
I could go on and on, but i think i covered the main points that are important. As to whether i thought it was a good investment, i would say yes, i am happy with the course. There is good and bad, but that is the case with any course, but overall, it is solid. It would be BETTER if it delved more into resolving the negative stuff (like the above), but I guess you can’t be perfect.
There is one other course that costs a fraction of ASM and has already seen me make regular profits on Amazon, through their FBA program. The course I signed up to and highly recommend is Jim Cockrum’s Proven Amazon Course. Many of you reading this will already be fully aware of this superb course, or are maybe existing members, so I know I may be preaching to the converted. The Proven Amazon Course, includes as part of the (realistic) fee, the best forum that I’ve ever been involved with. Loads of experts regularly contribute and I’m not talking about fake ‘affiliate’ experts. These are people who have built up businesses from scratch and are now making a very good living by selling physical products on Amazon, from all around the world. The forums on their own are worth the price before mentioning the extensive training, included, on all aspects of this business.
Personally, for those that want to import and create their own product to sell on Amazon, I’d go with Skip McGrath’s book called The Complete Amazon Marketing System. It cost $147 dollars and comes from a power seller.
These three things together determine how valuable your business asset becomes, and how quickly you get there. If you are lacking in one area, you can compensate through one of the other areas. How is that possible? If for example, you are starting with less money, you can compensate and still achieve the same results by working more hours, or executing better/more efficiently. If you don’t have the extra time, you could compensate by spending more money (on inventory, outsourcing, etc.), or be executing better/more efficiently.
CleanTAS 198 : (Loop Hole Exposed) How Amazon Paid Me $958.05 Without Selling More Product This one is no joke. Scott was able to get money from Amazon that was rightfully his, without selling a product. It has to do with product refunds and damaged products that Amazon has processed in the past, and he owes it all to Jacob, today’s guest. 5/4/2016 Free View in iTunes
If you are not in the first or second categories and still want to try, don’t forget to ask for a refund if you fail getting that first product. That’s where I screwed up. I spent more time trying to get a product and ended up missing the refund deadline.
I signed up for ASM7, and decided that with a full time job, the amount of time and effort it would involve to knock it out of the park with http://markets.financialcontent.com/mi.kentucky/news/read/35644596 didn’t make it a practical reality for me. (Yes, I’m sure others have made it work; it just wasn’t where I was at.)
In a nutshell, ASM teaches its members how to successfully drop-ship items via Amazon. That’s it. This revenue model is not exactly new; in fact, I mentioned online drop-shipping as a semi-viable work-at-home opportunity two years ago.

Logo design, label design and domain and hosting, you surprise me to include these as they are a ONE time fee, a part from hosting ($10 a month or less). I got my label and logo completed for $50 off fiver.
Will you be like me, who went from zero to $200k/month in a year? Or like Brian, who did even more than that per month in the same amount of time? Or one of many other ASM members who are at $25k/month, $50k/month, $100k/month, and beyond? One of our members consistently does over one million dollars per month.
