From the previous month, our sales doubled, and we averaged about eight sales per day, which equated to about $125 in sales (about half of that is profit). Not “quit your job” type money yet, but we’re getting somewhere.
Case in point: Jessica Larrew of Amazon Boot Camp. Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income interviewed Jessica and her husband/business partner Cliff and the couple appear to apply all the principles outlined in ASM except that they don’t source their product from China or other offshore countries (nope, they get their deals at places like Walgreens).
Instead of just addressing the issues, Jordan tried to scare people off from putting him down by saying that it’s just more publicity for him. (haha). When that didn’t work, he just got more ridiculous.
ASM is not a scam. It is a great system with a huge amount of support and a very detailed course. It has all the finer details for setting up a business on Amazon. The big issue is Amazon itself. Once you get product going, the returns are fairly small for the effort one puts in. You need numerous products
“In March of 2016, we launched our first product on Amazon. In our first 12 months, we sold over $528,000 in products! We’ve averaged over $80k in sales for the past 4 months and are on pace to sell over $1 million dollars in products this year – only our second year in business.
I am in many nitches and only followed partially what Matt and Jason preached in the ASM Course. I quit my day job and sell on Amazon full time. I started with Retail Arbitrage and wholesale to get into the game SUPER FAST. Now I am slowing selling off most of this stuff and replacing it with Private Label and New Wholesale Products as this is alot less work in the long run, and I control my products/listings. My most successful and profitable products are Private Label and some Wholesale. There is SOO much information in the course that I haven’t even done half of it, or used their tools yet. I’m still working up to that while still managing my inventory.
I knew I was in the wrong place with Amazon Associates as it just seems to be too much time and effort for little reward for me, but FBA was out of my comfort zone so I never jumped in eventhough I bought what is now ASM6 3 years ago! I need to speak with you privately about how you did this! Can you send me a PM please?
ASMers say stuff like “Oh, Amazon is growing faster than we are so no problems with competition.” But let’s be honest, ASM is filled with 98% of the people that have had no success at all (just like any IM course). Another successful 1% probably aren’t active in the forums. And then the final successful 1% will probably give you good general advice, but they aren’t spilling what really has worked well for them. Why would they?
As with many programs, they make it seem easy to sell on Amazon. Although as we can see from your own experience making money on Amazon is very difficult and getting harder all the time as more and more people enter the market.
I sell Amazon FBA on a daily basis and have tons of products I sell for 100%+ ROI. They are easy to find, so your basis is big time unfounded. Private Label is a great way to sell FBA without the competition. I know plenty of sellers who have great success with that. As far as I’m concerned with actual experience, FBA is a great way to have a profitable online ecommerce business that actually makes $ if you do it right and be smart about it. Better than any affiliate mess I’ve tried with blogs, websites or whatever. Google has and will continue to do whatever it takes to make SEO as hard as possible. In my opinion, the small time SEO entrepreneur is wasting their time. FBA is a viable business model. The seller of this product might be selling worthless goods and is obviously making his $ selling his product rather than doing full time FBA. But as far as I’m concerned, FBA is a legit business, you do have to work at it, it’s not hard to find products and there are ways to beat out other sellers who sell at a lower price. Your statements are not based on actual and factual knowledge of the FBA business model and you should learn more before making unfounded comments.
I agree with some of what you are saying, which IS structured in the ASM area, and I quote “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!” I agree with this statement.

My NET profit is margin is 52% excluding shipping fees (to amazon) product creation, FBA fees and any another fees included. You can work out the math, in my case I am making a healthy profit on a small number of units, as I increase my orders the cost of my product WILL reduce, like in any retail business, the more one buys, the cost is less.
If you are someone who isn’t succeeding with internet marketing, the $3,000 ASM course is unlikely to be “the thing” that changes your life. As with MOST courses, these things help people who already get it do better, they don’t really take many people from zero to success, those really are the exceptions, not the rule.
Personally not familiar with Amazon, have just started to think that an option to sell goods. But what I’ve read so far about Amazon, Amazon does not reveal any info about the amount of sales, so could you tell how do you get hold of these numbers?
There are ways to get around this, someone did mention it in the PAC forum sometime ago, but to me it seemed complicated. My thoughts are, this is a very good starter course, however you are not creating a brand for yourself you are selling other businesses brands.
The team at Amazing are just that….Amazing! They practically hold you by the hand from novice to skillful level, in identifying, sourcing, shipping, warehousing, and selling physical products online… at profits. And the mentorship includes ongoing education, and accessing cutting-edge tips and tools for promoting your business. In-house networking helps to broaden your horizon, and, really, this is way bigger than just selling on amazon; this helps to propel you into whatever you want to be in life, beyond just money!
Depending upon your previous experience selling on Amazon he endorses essentially 3 to 4 products. The one Malik likes best is “Proven Amazon Course” by Jim Cockrum which he considers easily worth $10,000 with all its info. You also get lifetime access to “Selling on Amazon Mentorship Series” as a free bonus. If you are a complete newbie, according to Malik, you will also need Andy Dew’s “Dewable course” currently at $99. I have just bought Jim’s course for $97 with lifetime access and updates. I think that was a savvy decision which just saved me approx. $3900!

Just imagine your favorite ecommerce entrepreneurs hanging out all in one place. It’s an opportunity unlike any other, and it’s your chance to mingle and start making things happen.
As for why our support team is not doing it, it rhymes with “Non Compete Agreement” and “Non Disclosure Agreement”. Each of the employees in our offices, on the first day of the job, sign each of these. And they clearly know what they are signing. Im not going to reveal all of my business to anyone like that without protecting myself.
For anyone still wondering about whether the course is worthwhile, I’d recommend you think about it like any other business opportunity…the business model is solid and opportunity still exists, but despite this, understand that some will be successful while others won’t.
