The more I read about other people’s experience, the more I think that selling other people’s products on FBA is just hustling for dollars. You can still make good money, but I wouldn’t spend my time making a few bucks at the sacrifice of what could be long-term potential. I would use it to pad your income and get some experience (if you’re new), but beside that it’s a little dicey. I still sell about 10-20 items that are other people’s products, but I see what I do and figure that it could easily happen to me. And then I read the people who this happens to (who rely on the income full-time) and think that they are doomed in the long-run.
Of course, you need to ensure the quality of the product that you’re selling so perhaps some types of products are more suited to this model. For example, there’s not much that can go wrong with a spatula when compared to an electronic item. ryan moran scam I’d steer clear of any health-related product where you run the risk of being sued because you didn’t know what ingredients where in the product you were selling.
Everyone has to figure this out for themselves…I spent much more than the cost of a ASM on something Jim recommended and I ended up being so pissed off because I thought it was terrible. I respect him a lot, but it just didn’t work for me. ASM on the other hand did work for me, but it might not for you. There will be no way to know in advance, so you’ve got to do your best to figure it out and at least be comfortable with the return policy just in case.
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.

The nice thing about affiliate marketing or having an affiliate marketing website is that once you have your website established and have helpful content for your niche audience, you can pick up a lot of unpaid natural traffic and your website can start to make passive income.

Interesting….I would say the only vital thing out of that list is the auto-responded. I have a solution now that I use that is around $25/month or so depending on volume. Alliance sounds interesting, but the rest of the stuff sounds like filler and cheap SEO tools.

The ASM community is priceless. It’s like being part of the biggest, most focused, mastermind group ever. And the contributions are outstanding. People genuinely, and fully, sharing their amazon experiments, performance and experiences so that other may learn. These then get built upon by others, taking the whole thing to new heights of learning and results.
I like Dan thies and Leslie Rohde, but that’s a total joke right there. Amazon employs sales reps to sign-up people on FBA and their other services. If you have a website, you’ve probably been contacted by them in the past.

Manuel has worked with some of the biggest retailers in the world including Wal-Mart, Lowes,Sears And Home Depot to find and source products for them. He’s an expert when it comes to working with factories in China and he’s well versed with the standards and product requirements involved.
I agree with your analysis. I ran the numbers on what they were telling us to do and came up with 20,000 Amazon products at most to make the first two criteria cuts. Then there are several other important factors which will knock that 20,000 down again. Now add a course with possibly 2,000 highly motivated people (having spent $3497) who are all looking for the ONE big money product, and how many of the 2000 will come up with one? Sure, out of 2000 starters, a few will land a big one, “proving” the course. But I doubt that even 20 will land a big one, and that’s less than 1%. A post above mentioned that some beta testers did very well. I’ve not seen one single mention about the percentage of people in the beta test who even made back their investment. If it were my course, I would be recognizing the success of those who performed well. Sometimes the lack of evidence is evidence itself.
So to put it as basically as possible it is an 8 week course where you are taught to find your own products, private label them and take full advantage of FBA (fulfillment By Amazon) to take orders, ship and handle the bulk of your business operations. In their own words:
Once we rolled out product #2, our sales spiked again, to over $30,000 per month, because we now had TWO income streams. Those results would more than DOUBLE the next month, to over $80,000 per month.
5. No course provider will give you success figures as very few people who buy products implement them. It’s called “shelf development”. People buy the product and leave it on the literal or metaphorical shelf!
Amazing Selling machine 8 is the best training they have created. It was launched in 2012 as a beta and came back with full version in April of 2013. At that time, it boosted the market. If you have worked in digital marketing field for a long time, surely you know something about this product.
I don’t participate in the FB group, but the podcast is full of great information. Scott is a nice guy that will answer pretty much any question thrown his way. I listen when I get a chance. Probably more so once I start getting more serious about PL.

I know the Daniel A you are reffering to, I know his brand, his products and his YouTube channel, when I just checked his 2 videos had 39 and 311 views, over the last 6 months!, don’t believe everything people tell you
Experience is experience. Doesn’t matter if it’s a lot or a little. I’m in a position to provide guidance to someone with my other business experience and the success I’ve had with Amazon so far. I’ve disclosed my experience and success. If someone wants to learn, they know what they are getting from me.
A word of encouragement, it’s not that difficult and if you follow the process you will get through it fairly quickly. Once the money starts rolling in, usually in about week 10 or so, the feeling of earning great money is greater than the work effort!
I can’t believe the number of people that think if they pay thousands for a course, then it will hand-hold them into success. You can get all the info you need to succeed, by reading over Amazon’s FBA info and/or by other info products that go into greater detail (like Proven Amazon Course by Jim Cockrum). I am in no way affiliated with Jim, just a person that has bought a few of his products and has followed his valuable advice. He has a real gem with his Silent Sales Machine eBook. And he even answers questions – how ’bout that …..

And again, here we have a overpriced program teaching people poorly and still earning great money. As I reviewed amazing selling machine I joined their news letter. They have the audacity to brag that they’ve sold this incompetent program to 1,000 people in one day.
