Surprisingly, the powerhouse affiliate system that built up around ASM has turned out to be the big differentiation factor. What I mean is that such large commissions create competition between affiliates, making bonus offers a real differentiating factor.
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.
I already have 2 Amazon courses. One is Affiliate Cash Snipers by Michael Rasmuseen and Mike Mograbi while the other is Ama Suite by Chris Guthrie and Dave Guindon released in this forum special offers – both last year.
Unlike other events that focus on inspirational stories and high level BS, the Sellers Summit is a curriculum based conference where you will leave with practical and actionable strategies specifically for an ecommerce business.
The “theory” behind the PAC (Proven Amazon Course) is one that should be modeled for ANY legitimate course or training offered in the “online entrepreneur” niche. It’s time to raise the standards of what we expect from the courses we buy.
Having purchased PAC, I want to just relay what I have noticed about the course. Yes, there is a section of the course about “White Labeling” products, but it’s basically just a “how to” of what to do.
CleanTAS 197 : (Hot Seat) What Should I Do to Get Sales Going Again? Todays’ episode of The Amazing Seller is one of the “Hot Seat” editions where Scott joins forces with his friend Chris Schaeffer to analyze a product that has been submitted for appraisal in hopes that Scott and Chris can give some advice to incre 5/2/2016 Free View in iTunes
What does it take to get a Private Label business up and running on Amazon? How do you know the best practices that will lead to success and where to even start? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you’ll hear from Scott as he starts the first of a five-part series on how TAS followers like you can get your start as a Private Label Seller. Y ……
You don’t try to compete with a large brand, you try to compete with a smaller/medium size brand that has no marketing skills. There are not many manufacturers selling on Amazon, therefore there aren’t many people that have a vested interest in getting as many product reviews as possible. Just by doing that one thing, you’ll give the allusion (over time) that your brand is as powerful as their brand.

This opportunity is definitely going to get much harder over the next few months as another 4,000 people come through this course, making at least 7,000 official and x,xxx non buyers chasing the same products.
Also, the “new super secret free software” that they “gave away” was the biggest joke I have ever seen. The software claimed to give you estimated sales for top sellers in different categories. Some number were off by a factor of ten. I know because I am the only seller for one of those products.
All I did was learn how to build a website, which is super easy in this day and age – you can build one for free right here (no worries, the hyperlink will pop up in another window and you can check it out later).
I do have experience selling on Amazon, and I’ve done well with ASM, but I’m not sure if I could have done a much better job training 1,500+ members than they did. There are so many small decisions that have to be made along the way, so there’s no way they could http://studio-5.financialcontent.com/mi.macon/news/read/35644596 covered everything in the course, and it would have also been impossible for them to provide every member with personal attention.
Great review of the Amazing Selling Machine program. I agree, lots of hype. You can get the same substance online for free or if you need a structured program using the power seller Skip that you mention.
Two years ago, I went through the Amazing Selling Machine program as a student. I had never sold a darn thing on Amazon before, and up to that point, and my business had been strictly about selling information products. Selling “real stuff” was actually a bit of a mystery to me.
CleanTAS 205 : Ask Scott Session #60 – Your Amazon FBA Questions Many people ask why Scott’s invested so much time and energy into putting out this podcast and doing his free workshops. Is it to sell his course? No, it’s not. Scott recently ran into a woman who reminded him why he’s doing all the work he is for 5/20/2016 Free View in iTunes
Then I thought about it, Jim Cockrum has the courtesy to come on to these forums and represent his product and reputation. I do not see ASM coming on these forums. Thank you Jim ! Nothing in life is guaranteed but your course is a small cost for educating me in what might be a life changer. THANK YOU JIM !
Right now, the doors are open and will remain open until January 31st, at which point they will make their decision. If you are on the fence about joining, I would take this opportunity to get in just in case they do decide to close up until later in the year.
(Currently I’m trying an additional Product, that will only cost around $1000 for the first batch incl. shipping, labels and everything. Need another 14 days or so and will see how that goes. But I have 12 month experience now and I’m well aware of what I was searching for and took my time for it.)
Grab the ASM freebies, Jim Cockrum’s PAC course (I believe it’s on special right now for those on his list) and go direct to Amazon to read all about the FBA program. That’s all you need. You don’t have to take out a personal loan to make other people rich. Put your $3500 towards some great inventory, or something else.
