Engaging Bullet Points. You get 5-10 depending on the category. Explain with the features and benefits. Start with the benefits. If it’s a garlic press that doesn’t cramp the hand, start with “It doesn’t cramp your hand.”
You don’t even have to use the tools. There is a glossy “merit” badge program, and to qualify for each step (so far – products and suppliers), you have to give them the information that you have found to “prove” that you have done the work. So, whether they intend to use it or not, the ASM creators get access to research done by many hundreds of people. Now – as those people are mostly newbies – is their research of any value? That’s another question.
I joined ASM2 (after rejecting out of hand ASM1). My start-up costs were just over $1,000. Total. This included the product, shipping from China, branding and images. I have done exceedingly well on top of this.
A wealth of information. I had previously paid for an FBA course from one of the FBA gurus out there and it was 497$. It was short on details and left me with too many questions. I found all of those pieces easily laid out in Scott’s podcast. The guy is also really nice to listen to. He is like a natural radio host. He keeps the flow and the tempo of his material up and he’s upbeat but not in an annoying way. He just delivers info in an easy to understand way that makes it very approachable. I downloaded Itunes just so I could leave this review. I very rarely review something. So this is special.
Like flyingdutch, I am not in a position to comment on the ASM course, but I am qualified to comment on the part I have highlighted. Sourcing is a vitally important part of the process, and many people are led astray by posts on this forum.
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
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this and reviewing different courses. Proven http://markets.wnd.com/worldnetdaily/news/read/35644596 Course (“PAC”) is good value, and it has it’s place, but if you’re interested in the private label business model, I wouldn’t recommend it as a first choice. There are better options out there.
Account creation & fundamentals- This module explains how to setup your business with Amazon seller. It also explains to you how to do a proper analysis & choose the product that will sell well on amazon.
Pizza was a bad example and even after reading it three times, I’m not really sure of the point you tried to make with your comment. If your point was that no one can trademark or patent “pizza”, agreed. Trademarks cannot be “merely descriptive” (a legal term).
CleanTAS 388: Ask Scott Session #120 – Bundling Products – Premium Packaging – Research Tools Don’t underestimate the power of GREAT customer service!

Now the part that everyone loves to hear and why everyone is so drawn to it is the 1000’s of success stories. With people ranging in earnings from tens of thousands to hundred thousand or some even up to a million dollars a month. Yep you read that right $100,000’s of dollars a month!! I have had some of my own success but not quite in the hundreds of thousands…yet!
A/B testing on Amazon is a no brainer for anyone who wants to truly optimize their listings. Splitly automates the whole process for you and makes it super simple to test different prices, images, titles and more. I’ve been able to squeeze out an additional 20% of profit from my products through A/B testings with Splitly.
Suggesting that the course was priced at $4000 in order to weed out inexperianced people is just plain silly, with all due respect, I’ve come across a lot of really very naive and inexperianced people who bought ASM, so that obviously did not work
I listen to a BUNCH of podcasts. To be honest, at least three to four hours a day. There are some truly amazing podcasts to listen to, but this one is the first one I have ever reviewed. Scott is a totally normal dude who tells you exactly how to make money on Amazon and continues to stay relevant. He not only gives great advice, he brings some of the top sellers and troubleshooters in the business, Scott does this for free. Yes, he will sell you the product, but if you listen to the podcast there is very little he doesn’t give away for absolutely free! I’ll probably pay for one of his live courses in 2017, mainly so I can meet the dude who has talked with me more than anyone else in the past month (my wife is jealous). Yes, Scott does have a product to sell, but if you want it for free just, listen to his podcast and get a priceless education. Thanks Scottt! You are truly The Amazing Seller!!!Micah (Albuquerque, NM)
Amazing Selling Machine 8 is created by two people – Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback. This program actually launched in 2012 as a beta and then launched the full version on April of 2013. The hundreds of successful students and verified testimonials, or the fact that Matt Clark is a known e-commerce expert who is known to go out of his way to help his students truly succeed. NOW, Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback are re-launching ASM, It is called Amazing Selling Machine 8. Amazing Selling Machine 8 is a complete package to selling on Amazon which includes 8 weeks of web classes, 9 proprietary software and a private community on Facebook.
Aside from the dynamics of retail inventory storage, you have to consider this: not everyone is a price shopper. Many people (especially those with Prime subscriptions) will see a price on Amazon, assume that it’s the lowest, and hit the buy button.
Back in 2006 I was running (and still am) an ecommerce store that was doing very well. The argument used to be (in the days of adsense) “Well, I don’t want to deal with the hassle of physical products”. So instead of making .20/visitor like I was ($20 profit for every 100 visitors), they were making about .01/visitor (5% CTR @ 25 cents per click). So they essentially needed 20x more traffic to make the same amount of money that I was making. Now what is more difficult?
I used to wonder the same thing, and if you read very early on in this thread, you’ll see that I was critical of the course for that reason. I changed my mind pretty quickly when money started to roll in.
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.
CleanTAS 343: Ask Scott Session #105 – Social Media Strategies – Patents – BSR and Product Selection Do you know your “WHY?” What drives you and keeps you going when business gets difficult?

Yes, we get it. You have a different, cheaper course. Do you think Honda can get Porsche clients by telling them this – hey our car is more reliable and less expensive? While other courses may be good, they don’t have the support around it that this product has. It’s impressive how much value is being generated in order to gain this type of traction. If they weren’t helping others become successful, they would in turn not become successful.
The first day of the Sellers Summit is reserved for a special mastermind meeting composed of sellers making at least $100,000 in profit or $250,000 in revenues (or a track record of $20,800+ monthly).
The best thing that emerged from my searching – the name Jim Cockrum kept coming up as someone with a proven track record and pretty much undisputed recognition as a trustworthy, honest and true authority in the Internet Marketing/Online sales arena. That led me to Jim Cockrum’s Proven Amazon Course (PAC). After a few days of research and deliberation I finally bought into it and after 11 months, I always tell people it has been the best investment I have ever made in my life.
First inventory = $1,000 (average estimate) (correct. HOWEVER, I and a few others started with $200. The problem is, when we run out of stock we had to wait. That is the problem, but I didnt have that that amount of money. My cost $200

I have taken the course “Oracle RAC, ASM and DG” at the DBA University. It’s an excellent course tought by experienced, knowledgeable and professional instructor (Srini Ramineni). 25% of training on lab machine and remaining will be on student’s PCs so that it helps student to continue to practice even after the course is completed. I also strongly recommend this course and any other courses offered by this instructor.
The key behind this program is finding the right product which you can brand that will produce good margins. Then secondary is just writing good sales copy and properly promoting the product to rank high.
The video claims of massive sales volume and 50% margins are ridiculous. Any product that actually moves well normally already has 10 other sellers willing to sell barely over cost – or it will have that many sellers once the volume becomes anywhere worth bothering with.
As a member of wealthy affiliate myself I can attest to its great resources and training. It does however take a long time to start earning, and in some cases, it takes over a year. Seeing that the amazon selling machine has great ways to make money fast, would you recommend this to someone who can afford this? Is the income something that can set you up with success for life, or would it only be seemingly temporary?
If you want to learn how to “manufacture your own” or white label products and sell them through Amazon FBA, this is the course – and for that business model, it does not appear to be priced too badly.
Some affiliates have even reported being promised up to 50% commission on their ASM sales, or about $2K. With such high profits and profit margins promised to would-be affiliates, it’s easy to understand why ASM has taken off as quickly as it has. One need only perform a quick search on Google to find reams of affiliate marketing websites touting the benefits of this program.

AMS is not for the tire kicker. Unless you have 10 grand and you are not afraid to lose it the AMS is not for you. Buy a course, buy several courses, go to Amazon and watch their videos, learn how to make $100 a day and then learn how to increase it. You can go to any department store, garage sales, estate sales, flea markets, thrift stores, book sales, dollar stores and thousands of websites to find things to make a profit on. Can you create a listing on Amazon? Can you get your own UPC number? Can you write copy? Do all of these, find a supplier and you have your own product to sell on Amazon. Next thing you know, you have 10 competitors cutting you price. If you know the ropes, the ropes can’t trip you up. Crawl before you walk. Walk before you run. 10% of the people that buy the course are making money is a stretch, maybe 1% and this time next year that 1% will be gone. DANGER.
