“As soon as we could get out of the deal, we did. The marketplace is an R&D facility for Amazon, where they look to see what’s selling and then sell it directly,” said former Circuit City executive Fiona Dias.
Most of what turns me off about the ASM boys is the marketing BS. They bragged on the callen webinar about all the success stories, even though the disclaimer at the bottom says most don’t make any money. What is even funnier about the stats is that they show someone that showed their “Sales Summary” figures of $50K and says “Just made my first $50K in profit”. Sales summary shows the total amount that Amazon charged, not even CLOSE to the amount that you end up with….and before product costs.

Does anyone know exactly what products the OP’s are selling/sold on Amazon? I think someone on this thread said they know and I would greatly appreciate if they shared it here as that would answer a lot of questions I have. Thanks in advance.
You’re right that there are other good courses as well, but free resources (and even PAC) can’t compare. You’ll learn the basics, but you’ll miss out on a lot of information if you’re serious about this business.
When I started with PAC I was going out to markets and charity shops with a target to buy 20 items aday (I also bought a scanner with my iPhone, which was pretty cool.) The only snag my phone battery amazon workshop review or a lost signal.
He told me that their training’s were exactly the same thing that he teaches only not in video form. So Skip’s Complete Amazon Marketing System (which goes for $150 USD’s) has the same info that ASM sells for 5K. He didn’t take them up on his offer to make more money by selling the customer out, and I think that says a lot about integrity.
I’ve read quite a few Amazing Selling Machine reviews and one thing I find in common is that whenever there are many complaints about the program, it’s from people who probably are too new or at an unsuitable level for the complexity of an ecommerce program of this caliber. My suggestion for anyone who is considering buying ASM is to carefully study the sales page and watch the introductory videos to assess if the course is suitable for your needs and level of expertise and experience. If not, there are dozens of other options which can provide a more suitable introduction to ecommerce. But if you’re suitable for the ASM program, then the chances of your results being worth the investment are higher.
As of right now I’m waiting for Amazon to put labels on my good and make them available for sale. Not so sure I should fronted my friend the funds, but only time will tell. I hope to know for certain in the upcoming weeks.
I have taken the Amazing Selling Machine courses and am not impressed. I have also read a few of the training manuals from Skip McGrath and I would recommend Skip’s system if someone is really into starting an online business in importing and drop-shipping on Amazon.
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!
#2: for someone who has over 200+ comments in this forum, you seem as you have experience in IM, so I wont teach you how to suck eggs. They provided lots of value on the webinar to show people by doing the basic things ANYONE can make money in FBA, in addition to the training inside the course your results will go into overkill (positive).
Sample products = $100 (average estimate) (not quite true. 95% of my products are from USA, most of my suppliers sent out a sample for free. And even my other supplier who is outside the USA also sent me a sample for free. That is best case. Worst case, I agree with you. My cost $0
I’m glad panorama saved me the trouble of having to correct all the errors in milla04 post, but it all just shows the point I made previously, that after fee’s, product and shipping costs you are lucky if you are going to make a net profit of $10 per unit on a typical ASM product priced at $25-30.
There’s Anthony, who was working three jobs to make ends meet when he joined The Tribe. Anthony didn’t have much going for him, except for a burning desire to succeed. Anthony had some bumps and bruises along the way, and success took longer than he expected. But after fighting through the challenges, Anthony had a business doing $30,000 per month. But more importantly, he had several clients that he was helping with their marketing, and making six figures on the side! Anthony has since quit all three jobs and is now a full-time entrepreneur.
80% of your time WILL be spent on research, you will need to compared with 5-10 suppliers to get the best price, then email or call them. If you are sourcing from China, expect delays in replies due to time difference.
Will you be like me, who went from zero to $200k/month in a year? Or like Brian, who did even more than that per month in the same amount of time? Or one of many other ASM members who are at $25k/month, $50k/month, $100k/month, and beyond? One of our members consistently does over one million dollars per month.
Click this link if you’d like to read more about their training program. Keep your head up Ryan, I too lost close to $5K on my first importing adventure, I was lucky to make it up and 10 fold, but I didn’t quit. I made importing work, but didn’t like the risk or the high level of involvement.
Based on all the reviews and videos people start earning $1000 – $3000 within first 3-6 months. So if you really follow the system then ROI is one of the fastest. I personally can’t validate this claim but I will soon be a live proof of this and will post the results.

I agree with you somewhat here. There will always be people who do well and those who don’t. Just like any business, some people will fail. Anyone who is thinking about buying ASM because they think it’s the once in a lifetime opportunity to buy a winning lotto ticket shouldn’t buy this. It’s a business. It takes work and success isn’t guaranteed.
Well, if you read through the details, you’ll see that one of the terms is that it’s ONLY available to those who refund. So, having been through ASM 1.0, I can tell you that very few people will have inventory in-hand within the first 30 days (when the refund period expires). In the unlikely event that someone does have inventory within the first 30 days, they aren’t likely to refund because they wouldn’t really have had a chance to see if it sells.
