Not saying the marketing aspects are not SUPER important, but they are relatively easy and cheap to get learn and get done. Basically you just do what ASM teaches you. Most of it common sense that surprisingly few sellers understood this just 1-2 years ago.
As far as the mention of them using their tools to steal your information and promote your products themselves, I don’t see that happening. The reason is because their tools only allow you to promote a specific product on Amazon and get it ranked well. They have no idea if that product is actually selling well as that information is not recorded or tracked in the tools. They would be taking a huge risk by just randomly selecting products that are in the system being promoted not knowing if they are selling at all. It would be like throwing darts at a board of products. They obviously are doing well choosing their own products to promote.
Of course, all of this is mostly my opinion and speculation at this point so I’m not sure what that is worth, although I have been in retail for over 15 years. I will post again at the end of the 30 days and let you guys know how it worked out.
I’m not going to google and cite the many, MANY, lawsuits that happen in the fashion industry because it is an intellectual property minefield and there are so many issues involved that it is difficult to give someone a blanket answer. Fashion also falls under copyright law (in many instances) and in some instances an actual design can receive trademark protection (such as Burberry’s plaid).
My Recommendation / If you have the money and want to consistent, high-quality training and support to launch an FBA business, Amazing Selling Machine is hard to pass up. The newly added 6-month guarantee helps alleviate some of the pressures of the high price tag and has pushed ASM into a solid buy rating from I’ve Tried That.
And for the record, I am not in the minority. sure some people are successful but there are lots more who are not. Think about it. About 10000 people bought ASM, how many are really successful? If you complain about anything on the forum or facebook page, your post is removed. That being said, you still hear horror stories on the forum and facebook page.
In order to control your destiny, you’ll need a proprietary product – that is what these courses are trying to teach…find a market and make a private label product, do better marketing and you will sell…

DEALING WITH NEGATIVE REVIEWS Negative reviews are at the top of some of the worst things that can happen to an Amazon seller. So what recourse do you have? Should you respond to the negative reviews? Abandon the listing and start a new one? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott walks through several ways sellers like you can deal with negative reviews left on your product listing. One thought that Scott shares is to consider offering a new and improved product that resolves the reviewer’s issues free of charge as a response to the review that they left.
I have never seen a guarantee quite like this one as Matt and Jason want you to give the system a try totally risk free. I don’t say this often, but it really does appear that you have nothing to lose by giving ASM a shot. If in the end it doesn’t work out after 6 months, you’re out only the time invested.

With this absolutely massive amount of inventory being moved, there is no need (or want) for an individual store to dwell on a tiny bit of product that happened to not sell in that particular store for one reason or another.

My overall view, is the course worth getting? Yes! I believe that anyone can make some money from this and if you want to start up your own business and follow an entrepreneurial route then this is a great way to start. Who has to say you only sell your product to Amazon? To see the best results it will require some ingenuity. For example being creative in how you sell your product to gain customers and increase sales. Do I believe this course could be life changing? Yes!
I purchased and refunded. It is about selling ecommerce through amazon. When I purchased he broke the payments up but I wasn’t impressed with what he offered for the price. No problem getting a refund from him.
The topics presented in this course are organized around a simple customer scenario involving a photo-sharing website and its potential vulnerabilities to business logic abuse and other threats. You’ll learn how to identify common threats to such a web application, and then deploy ASM’s Real Traffic Policy Builder® to quickly eliminate most threats. You’ll see how ASM can apply its attack signatures to inspect user input and alert you if a violation is detected. And you’ll step through the process of using the Deployment Wizard to create, configure, and manage a basic application security policy using the automatic option.
I hardly ever leave podcast reviews, mostly because the one I hear aren’t all that good, but I just had to show my support to Scott in hopes he’ll continue with the podcast and sharing valuable information that sellers from a beginner to advanced level can appreciate. You won’t be dissapointed by his tidbits of knowledge and resources shared in each podcast. Looking forward to listening in the future!
ASM does a good job overall and I think how they present the material is probably better than other courses I’ve seen. However, in terms of content quality, the training is similar to what you can find elsewhere at a lower course.
I can show you a day where I did 250 unit sales per day, does that mean I made $300K in a month? If I was an enterprising internet marketer, I would pump sales to my product for one day and then just extrapolate that out for the year. Besides, the reports that these guys use are misleading; they don’t include the fees that Amazon takes.
They teach you also when to expand to other Amazon sites especially the European sites like UK & Germany. The entire process is shown in details here (this is of Amazing Selling Machine 8 course if you start out with Amazon US which is Amazon.com.)

That being said, like Jim Cockrum says, you’ve got to be careful with your approach. The course does teach a couple of things that I believe are borderline in putting your account in danger, so I avoid that and only do what I’m personally comfortable with.
ASM is not worth it. Paid for it in 2013, lost $5000. They show you how easy it is to “find” products to sell. This is very misleading. They showing how to identify products that can do well on amazon, I do give them that. However, finding a product is not easy. You can find 100s of suppliers for any product, that’s not the issue. The issue is finding a supplier that will give you a quality product (with quality I mean as good as whatever is sold on amazon) at a price where you can make a profit. Tried that, ended up spending lots of money on samples and got either terrible quality compared to what is sold on amazon or the price was so high that I would have lost money trying to sell it. Tried this with a few products and then decided to cut my losses. Even though they have a 30 day trial where I could get a full refund, the part where they show you how to acquire the product is in week 4. So, by the time I got my samples and realized I was screwed, it was too late for a refund. This product may be useful for someone with deep pockets or someone who already has a product. If someone needs buy in installments, they really shouldn’t, they will end up losing their money. I would say if you have at least 20k to spare, this course http://www.ksla.com/story/37326182/news work for you.
This bonus and their guarantee truly ARE worth the peace of mind you get for this epic training by Matt and Jason. I want you to be succesfull in this, so take the time and learn the system, buy your products, build your business, and understand the hype behind ASM IS warranted. 🙂
Over the last 1-2 years the competition for typical private “easy to source private label products” on amazon.com has exploded. The last 6 months alone the competition has probably increased exponentially because of ASM. Not saying that there are no more opportunities out there, and there will of course always be new opportunities for “all-new products”. Those who are first on the market will usually make a killing.
My point was that buyers should be aware that the course isn’t perfect so you can’t expect to just blindly “follow the system”. You’ve got to use good judgement and common sense. You’ve also got to be aware of all the rules because you’re responsible for everything that happens with your account.
