Since I could not advertise any longer, I tried to resurrect my business using SEO in Google. Slowly I started to make money again. I began to relax. Then, all of a sudden, the “Big G” (Google) started the “Google Dance” again… and they pulled the rug out from under me by changing their algorithms again and again. As Google continued to improve their search engine, ranking high was harder than nailing pudding to a tree.

With that said, I do see a lot of potential here based on the data and the facts that I have been able to obtain as well as my experience in retail and IM. The program just makes sense from a business standpoint and if you follow the training, your product listing is far superior to 95% of all the other products on Amazon, which in turn will be more attractive to the buyer and convert higher.
If you are anything like me you probably feel the same way, desperate to get freedom from your job and keen to follow in the success of all these internet millionaires you keep hearing about. However, without a step-by-step system to follow it is confusing to know where to start and what to do.

If you ask me, is the course worth $4k (I think it costs more now, $5k or $6k? OMG!), I will say NO, even tho I myself bought it. From the beginning when I am in the course, I had the thought of refunding just before the 30 days guarantee period. Because the course is not worth the money, you can easily use that sum of money to fund your inventory and your product launch. How to launch a product to get it ranked? Simple, I think its not a secret nowadays, just do a google search and you will find the answer: manipulate the amazon algorithm with tons of simulated sales within a short period of time.
I have started researching Amazon FBA/PL about 3 months ago. Initially a friend sent me a youtube video about making money on Amazon and other platforms. That took me to other videos on the subject, found the Jungle Stix case study by Jungle Scout, watched the whole series (one episode had Scott as a guest speaker) and started looking for a PL product to source and sell on Amazon. Found a product, contacted manufactureres in China and got some pricing, but felt unsure and not ready to take the next step. Almost gave up and then another friend that just started selling his first PL mentioned Scott’s podcast. Started liseting and got hooked from the first day. For me it was a perfect combination of great information and motivation to take action, which I did. Now we are in the process of having our first order manufactured and should be getting it to Amazon sometime next month. There is a lot of great info available from other sources, but for me the Amazing Seller Podcast has it all in one place. It also gives me the needed boost of energy and motivation to keep pushing through all the obstacles that come with this journey.I see some reviewers bash Scott for trying to monetize by using affiliate marketing, and I had disagree with them. There is nothing wrong with trying to make some money while providing a great service and helping tons of people. Scott is a great Enetrpreneur and he’s trying to help his audience become good Enterpreneurs as well. He is always open about any affiliations and offers other ways you could achieve the same task without having to rely on a paid affiliate tool. Do people really expect everything for free?! Look at the amount of info you are getting without having to pay a penny. All the effort and time that Scott puts into it on the back jason fladlien review he should get somethign back in return. Just like all of his podcasts and lessons, use this as another tip on how you can make money if you have a skillset that people can benefit from.
As for their lawyer, they were just doing their job by protecting the Amazing Selling Machine ‘brand’. There wasn’t much sense in me trying to fight them, so I complied. I’m not sure if they still represent them today.
@Tooledyou – Drop shipping and wholesaling is only an income stream. You only are making money for your right now. You can’t sell this business, there is no value to another person because your are the person.
The people talking about ASM remind me, very much, of the Stompernet community. I joined in 2006 when the price was $797/month and the place was a vibrant community. Stomperenet was focused on e-commerce and, at that time, the information was EXTREMELY limited about how you start/grow a store. So in a situation like that, you can really learn a lot to get you off and running.

It appears that Amazing Selling Machine has reopened the doors for ASM8 for the entire month of January 2018. They seem to be testing the waters on whether or not to keep the program open year round instead of doing a launch every 6 months or so.
This is a comprehensive, but concise guide to getting started with selling Private Label products on Amazon. Easy to follow and understand, Scott Voelker lays a solid foundation for launching your own Amazon business.
The price! The Proven Amazon Course costs a fraction of the Amazing Selling Machine – $399 vs $3997 (prices updated on Oct 18, 2017). That’s a 10x cost difference! In other words ASM costs 1000% more than PAC, or you can see it as PAC costs 90% less than ASM.
I have been a sucker for lots of hype for lots of products. Some have helped out, but if you get all hyped up when you watch their sales presentation, I would take a breath, not act quickly & really think about whether you have the time, the money and the niche where it can really pay off for you.
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.
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.
Scott, I appreciate all the knowledge that you and your guest speakers provide; it’s invaluable. Hearing other people’s success stories only inspires me even more. I listen to your podcasts on my walk to work and on my way home. Thank you for keeping me motivated as I’m sure you are motivating others in the same way!
What I object to is the super hype implying that you are going to be making $100k/month while on vacation in Paris after a few months in this business, doing little more than logging in and reordering inventory

Given that we are private labeling products, there is a chance that those products that you try to PL are already owned by someone else. They legally own the product and no one is allowed to sell it but that owner, but it won’t necessarily show in the resource that they give you (a website that will tell you if there are patents on products). This was brought up numerous times in the discussion forums and such, and in the end, the answer by ASM was, in order to truly find out, you will need to contact an attorney that can look it up for you. And the cost isn’t cheap, i’ll just say that straight up. In the thousands. An ASM member found that out the hard way after he was selling product and got a letter from the owner saying that he is infringing on the product and would need to cease selling it. The ASM member just bought a very large amount of inventory, and now has to scrap it. Money down the toilet. And as bad as that was for this member, i later found out that it could’ve been much worse. People who infringe on others products could pay as much as 3 times earnings (earnings of whatever you made on the product over a certain period of time). And given that the member said that they bought alot of inventory, i assume that they made decent money on the product (or else why buy alot), so as bad as it was for them, it could’ve been MUCH worse…
If you follow a cookie cutter system, then you’ll be lumped in there with the rest of those guys selling sleep masks and crystal balls. You might not even try to do something because you’ve been told that it’s impossible!
Repeat this for the top 10 sellers for the product. If the top 3 aren’t selling at least 10 units per day, there’s not a lot of depth for that product and you may want to skip it. You want to compete for the 6th or 7th spot in the top 10. There needs to be enough room for you to compete AND make money.
If you send the buyer to Amazon from your site or marketing, you have their details. You have the right to contact them. However, if Amazon feels like your are jeopardizing their name, they will likely shut you down.
I’ve written this in many of my posts, and whether it’s selling a product on Amazon, creating a digital product, or putting together a affiliate website or blog, it’s going to take some time – but the fruit of your labor can be something that continues to reward you long after you’ve done the work.
