The name of the game with these sites is to build relationships. They are typically agents who will deal with the manufacturers on your behalf. With Alibaba, there’s a lot more back and forth. Ask a lot of questions like:
For sure private label is the way to go. If you are selling a ‘brand’ product that anyone can buy. You will always find someone comes in and cuts your margin. There is always some willing to work on crazy margins.
I was doing everything I could to find a way to replace me income without going back to school. I spent hours searching the internet for a way to build a passive income and then I came across the retail arbitrage course Amazon Bootcamp by Jessica Larew.
And regarding your examples that you laid out, it’s always easier when we’re just speaking in hypotheticals I guess it depends on how you define your margins. Some people saying “My gross margins are 66% because I buy it for $10 and sell it for $30 on Amazon” while others will define their gross margins by 33% because they deduct the Amazon fees and transportation costs associated with selling it. The latter is more accurate in my opinion.
This conference is for you if you want to start a physical products based ecommerce business or if you already have an existing ecommerce business that you want to grow. There will be two tracks that will cover both beginners and advanced sellers.
The value of the program is not worth the price. Sure there is good content but it is really basic. I personally know a person who signed up for the ASM and was really disappointed because she felt the content did not justify the price at all. By the way she is a true guru who was a single mum struggling to raise her kids just 2 years ago but is now making over $1 million a year while homeschooling her children.
You said selling more moves your product up the rankings. But how do you get your product to sell in the first place? You mean to tell me all you have to do is list your product on Amazon and it starts selling?
The program, co-developed by Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback, costs $3,497 to up-front buyers and 4 payments of $997 to installment buyers. In exchange for that $3.5-$4K, buyers receive the following:
So my suggestion to those (like, 1% of all the contributors here) who want to go to great lengths to discredit me (or do things like create a Warrior account for the first time in their lives just to launch a tirade), PLEASE continue doing so
An example to overstate things. We do things the ASM-way from a marketing perspective, but we also spent $160k on producing one of our recent products. By that we eliminate possible competition from most other ASM-type sellers who basically only rely on excellent marketing.

Amazon selling machine seemed more oriented around limiting the products you sell but going deep with a specific product like different models/sizes so you limit your FBA storage costs and shipping costs……or private labeling the product so other sellers can’t piggyback on your product and depress margins. The Amazon Selling Machine software was about automating the customer feedback process for you using Amazon API’s get reviews and manage the customer feedback loop for you ? (would have been helpful if they showed an actual inside look at the software being provided)
@perswealth, GREAT reply…I agree 100% with just about everything you said. I’d probably be a little more hard on them about the other products/services they have tried to sell after the fact. I’ve found tremendous value in ASM itself, but have personally felt that the newsletter and other offers were more about the money grab. I think they are honestly trying to deliver a lot of value, but are just falling short. I’d love to see more from them in terms of providing tips on how to grow my business (I’d gladly pay for it), but I don’t think they’ve been able to *bottle it* in the same way they did with ASM.
In fact, I’ve had conversations with ZanyZebra and can tell he knows what he’s talking about. I’m still happy to honestly answer any questions about the course, but if anyone is looking for a coach, I’d suggest they reach out to him because I’m maxed out. I regularly turn down private coaching offers (as much as $10k once) because I know I can make more money growing my own business.
