When I first purchased the Amazing Selling Machine, I’ll be honest – I didn’t even open it and get started with it for a few months. I was simply too busy with many other projects that were consuming my time.
And there’s amazon itself, which is where the real problem is. Your store isn’t really yours; your listings aren’t yours and “your” customers aren’t your customers. In addition, Amazon can shut you down at a moment’s notice and all your hard work + inventory are now worth close to nothing. That is far too much risk for any business owner that wants to rely on their online business for steady income. Invest the same amount of money and effort into your own niche store (e.g. Shopify or BigCommerce) using a dropshipping approach
I have a local business that pays my bills and I have to dedicate most of my time to that. I am doing this in my spare time. I also have two kids and volunteer at my church and those 3 things are my priority, although not in that order of course (Family and church comes first).
The overall strategy makes sense, but it really has little to do with the traditional IM product. This is all about selling a physical product via an online marketplace. I think the reason it’s being promoted to the IM space is because people are looking for the magic way to make millions and this product promises that.
@Panorama – No. http://www.wistv.com/story/37326182/news is what you take out of it and tried to spin it like. Pitching? If you considering on educating people and informing them on other choices before they take that big of step…… I guess I’m guilty.
I agree with you somewhat here. There will always be people who do well and those who don’t. Just like any business, some people will fail. Anyone who is thinking about buying ASM because they think it’s the once in a lifetime opportunity to buy a winning lotto ticket shouldn’t buy this. It’s a business. It takes work and success isn’t guaranteed.

I was shocked when a simple main image test increased my sales from an average of 11/day to 14/day. That may not sound like much but that results in over $4,000 extra in profit put into my pocket each year. Since sales on Amazon vary from day to day and week to week so much, I would never have known the true winner without doing the proper A/B test through Splitly.
You better have quality products and commit to do more than get bogus sales and reviews folks. It is possible. I had one dud and now one success that is growing very well. Biggest advice I can give, is that it is ALL about brand building. My noble competition is priced well below me, but I have the brand that sells at premium and I do not have to worry about the cost cutters (or the ‘viral’ sellers
What will it take to move from an open brand approach to more of the niche brand approach that Scott, Chris, and Dom often talk about? Is it even realistic to do so if you’ve started as an open brand? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott walks through what it will take for sellers like you to start moving in the direction of an open brand concept. Scott addresses two different approaches to this question and how you can make the right …decision based on the direction you want to go with your business. To hear Scott dive deep into this topic, make sure to catch this episode!
If someone is barely making rent or barely able to buy groceries, do not go with the Amazing Selling Machine. You’re looking at 5K on this overpriced program, then another, at the minimum, 5K in importation and marketing fees. And you could easily spend up to $20,000 dollars and still not have a super profitable importation business.
how would you know your not in ASM right…those badges are only what is shown each month over 50 per month that is SHOWN, might be 500 but only 50 are shown…and in fact its correct…its 1000 in fact not 10,000…critisice as you maye but we are the ones working it and leaving our day jobs and wrok 10 hour weeks making more money than you will in 3 years in a month so im the one laughing not you…more than likely your in a day job doing 50 hours a week spending bugger all time with your kids if you have any. meanwhile im enjoying life traveling, buying clothes new cars building new house going on holidays..yup thats how it is….have a nice life…ooops sorry you dont have one your doing a day J.O.B ( just over broke )
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.
One interesting fact is that ALL the mentors are previous ASM members who have had tremendous success on Amazon. The mentors are not paid, they actually take their own personal and business time to help new members. This alone should tell you how much good will the Amazing Selling Machine program has created.
Lifetime moneyback guarantee. This beat the 30 day ASM look-in period hands down, which teases you with insufficient crumbs to get you past that 30 day point of no return. On the other hand, PAC has been around for over 10 years and they have a stellar support team that stands 100% behind what they say.

I will provide more details in another post but I will leave you with this photo. It shows my two children playing in the waves at Playa Ventanas, Costa Rica. This trip would never have been possible without my involvement in the Amazing Selling Machine. Thank you.
Let’s see… My experience is not in the categories they covered in their examples. My ecommerce experience is based off small, lightweight, expensive for it’s size and weight. Therefore a tumbler would not be a product I would want to sell because it’s heavy and inexpensive for it’s size.
If it was so easy to be successful – everyone would be doing it. Of the 1,000’s that will shell out the money for this course I believe MOST will NEVER even recoup their initial investment in the course. They throw around the astounding sales results of a few individuals, including one of the promotors – if it’s too good to be true…well…
If you reread her statement, you can feel that she felt taken advantage of by not knowing all the costs that would be involved with setting up an importation business on top of the 5K you spend on the ASM. She called ASM a scam, but I think that was just frustration from being blown over by their marketing tactics.
Ryan? I’m just encouraging him to continue, and it’s working. (Hm, maybe the huffy puffy remarks are just self-reflective here)…anyhoo, carry on folks, continue. I’m all ears. Really. I’m right here, all my time is 100% watching your remarks today…
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.

I’m in the middle of putting together a private label deal that, I think, will be a consistent money maker for me. I found the product by searching for it on Amazon because I wanted one of my own. I saw a competitor selling the product, I researched the cost in China and the cost to get it packaged, I plugged it into FBA calculator, and figured I’d make around $15/sale. My plan is to price it aggressively, get sales, get reviews, and then slowly ramp up the price as that happens.
They just released the second video of a brand new four-part series. This new video shows you how to find suppliers from all over the world that are waiting right now for you to contact them and do business with them. And you’ll learn how you can AUTOMATE this entire business using Amazon’s resources.
So my suspicious is that once you get to that point, you might realize you don’t need additional training. And in fact, it’s usually FAR FAR FAR more valuable to actually purchase products from successful sellers and take note of what they are doing.
or info. on how to promote a webpage etc. Heck, pay me 3000 dollars and I’ll tell you the same things… Get Facebook Links, Pinterest Links, Reviews, Youtube, Articles, Press Releases…And all with the keywords. Your Amazon product pages are the same thing as websites you would promote. Hell, we’ve heard all that before.
You either do a patent search or you ask for the manufacturer to show you their active license for that product. Or, you can get a license yourself from the patent holder. Some products with only a design patent can very easily be altered and produced without licensing. You can also go after products with no enforceable patents, meaning the patents are old and expired. Items like door knobs, or medicine cabinets (Things that I import personally) can be easily produced without any patent infringement. PM me if you want to know more.
