Excellent points and I really would encourage any online entrepreneur to read what Rod here has said about the Amazing Selling Machine. Don’t waste your hard earned cash on an over priced and marketed program. Go with Skip McGrath’s The Complete Amazon Marketing System for $147, that’s 33 times less jay gray aliexpress than the Amazing Selling Machine training.
I’ve been getting great sales of some of my products in Amazon and I have done exactly nothing, zero, narda, not even a single press release or video, just listed the product and it started selling from day 1
@Wickwire – SEO is a very tough thing and just something I think they provide to help others get traction without having to pay for marketing right off the bat. Any successful business relays on advertising and not SEO.
Trainees and early career faculty will benefit from practical advice from established principal investigators and study section members about the grant writing and review process. Successful grant applications are written with the review process and reviewers in mind, but early-stage investigators do not ordinarily have access to this important information. This session will also provide information for grant writers on recent developments, changes and additions to proposal requirements. Read more.
@Kevmik, I would personally take a cue from lsf8’s comments posted just before your’s and heed the warning!!! You’ve been warned. Hopefully you can take the hit that this program might end up being to your bottom line.
Furthermore I got actual ranges based of Amazon’s Best Seller Rank for each category as to where I will find my perfect product opportunity. Also ideal price ranges and how to sort out competition. Another words which products are already too competitive and which ones have perfect opportunity for us to get in to.
I have 1 product that I buy for 0.50 landed from china (meaning shipping and everything factored in) that I clear $1.85 (after all fees and COGS). The ONLY reason I sell it is because it sells reliably and consistently and why not? it’s an extra few hundred a month and it costs nothing. I would not go LOOKING for another product like this, but it was something I already knew about.
I have to give Jason Fladlien credit for being a great marketer, but if people really looked closely at his offer, they would have found much better bonuses out there. Just looking at his Profit Guarantee should have been a red flag that the bonus was mostly salesmanship – the truth is almost no one will be eligible for his guarantee if you read the terms, so it’s practically worthless. Those are the kind of tactics that are a big turn off to me and make me lose respect for someone.
You need to have money to get started. Amazon pays out twice a month. It takes 3-4 days to hit your bank account. If you wait for your deposit to re-order/stock up, it’s around 2-3 weeks to get things over to fulfillment and into your inventory. Therefore, you need to be able to purchase at least 30 days of inventory to really make it through otherwise you’re dropping momentum with stock outs. I don’t feel they are entirely clear with that. Yes you get paid like clockwork, however, if your inventory is getting low, you need to be able to re-order without waiting for a disbursement because Amazon’s inbound fulfillment (getting your items into their inventory system) is just not the fastest thing.
Since the first ASM version released in 2012, there has been countless of successful members with amazing income reports and most of them credited ASM for bringing them their financial success. Seeing people achieving success gives me a lot of confidence to push through in times of difficulties.
Steve started selling online when his wife wanted to quit her job to stay at home with the kids. He now runs several 6 figure businesses which include an ecommerce store, a blog, a podcast and an ecommerce training class.
In the beginning, making money online was as easy as taking candy from a baby – but do not try this baby-larceny. Trust me, this is an arrestable offense. Anyway, all I had to do at that time was find good offers and use Google Adwords to advertise and sell stuff.
And, to be perfectly frank, for very many they’d rather not tell the world about ASM (for fairly obvious reasons). Many are also annoyed that ASM3 is coming onto the market and there is a debate to be had about whether or not it can be ever again.
I’ve seen those estimators out there and they are total BS, especially since there is a simple way to see exactly how many units someone sells in a given period of time. All people need to do is just use their brain a little bit and think it through.
(Some of them will respond to this post and say “Yeah but we have ___________ features that make us really unique from the rest!”. That’s a great selling point but it’s not critical to you pulling off private label successfully. I don’t care what the features are.)
Panorama – No issues with your opinion. I provided my thoughts and reasons from my perspective with the exact steps on getting started with a product with a real example for someone. I also provided an alternative if people were interested, but left that last and provided 30 minutes of valuable information.
The next step is much easier: sellers sign up with Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and ship all their product there. At that point, Amazon stores the inventory for those sellers as well as markets, sells and ships it. Thus, Amazon becomes the actual drop-shipper.
Fundamentals and applications of electricity, power distribution, controls, motors, and solid-state electronics. For non-engineering majors. 2 lectures, 1 three-hour laboratory. Prereq: Junior standing, MATH 103 or MATH 104.
Students also have lifetime access to the course and all updates. I also do a monthly Q&A coaching call so that students can get their specific questions answered about sourcing products for their Amazon sales channel.
The Facebook group I’ve just about abandoned. There is a lot of good information there, but there is a lot of really bad and blatantly false information on there too. The problem I have with the group are the individuals that act like experts in private labeling on Amazon, and give our bad/false information, just because they don’t really know what they’re talking about, but people listen to them regardless and it’s just all around bad.
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.
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.
The Amazing Selling Machine program is really amazing! People like Brendan Morris have made over $30 million in the last year. You can watch his Story in this Facebook Page: Here’s the Live Video: https://AmazingSellingFacebookSessions.com/

Whats funny what happen to testimonial from people who have actually made money using what they teach that is how launches and products used to go … But these guys have you trained to BUY BUY BUY …
Fast forward to this year and their new product…well a friend of mine asked Jason what categories are best to find these great products..after all he said there are thousands of opportunities and and it will NEVER get saturated. Now keep in mind my bud was asking for a primary category like Beauty or Electronics and there are only like 20-30 main categories in amazon. Well Jason wouldnt even say what category he has seen work well or ones that dont…I am sorry if there are so many opportunities why are you worried about saying here are a few that might be worth a go??? I mean these primary categories have thousand upon thousands of products…
I have to say that I haven’t bought any of the products mentioned. Having said that I can honestly say that I have been a follower of Jim Cockrum for many years. He is one of my favorite IMers and he has always produced a quality product!
Whilst I will most like not not be able to afford a 3K ASM course I would be interested in doin some research as has been suggested throughout this thread, but the bank issue kinda stops me, like why spend time researching if at the end of the day I still cannot participate.
Never heard of this guy so can’t really comment on that. But I do have to say, “$300K a month on profit” kinda leads me to believe that he’s already embellishing. Right? That’s $3.6M/year in profits…..if he makes a 20% net profit, that means he’s doing $18M/year in revenues.
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 “copy-paste just follow the system”-days are maybe not over just yet, but they should be soon. Time will tell how long ASM works for hard working people with limited resources who only follow the program with 100% devotion. Maybe two more ASM courses in the current format is my guess. After that they will need to come up with something new, maybe earlier than that.
