If I take myself as a case, to answer your question, it took me til around week 10 or so (if I remember back correctly) working approximately 2-3 hours a day on my first product (I was, at that time, running a management consultancy full time).
I doubt that ASM is having a huge impact on the competition anyways because private labeling is just something that anyone selling on Amazon would figure out. I think ASM probably appeals to people with no experience on Amazon and they think of it as some sort of “secret”. But if you’re doing even small volume on Amazon, this should be a logical next step.
– There are a few people in the thread who need to take a step back and not get so offended. The thread is here to give people an idea of whether or not the course is right for them. There’s a lot of great material in here, but also a ton of stuff that has no value and is more pissing match than informative.
But as years went by, a weird thing happened. Those guys proved that they’re a legitimate business. And they kept churning out legitimate Amazon seller success stories, growing and hiring at their office in Houston Texas, attracting quality partners, and honoring all their 30-day refund requests from customers.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make, Scott says, is to go after trendy products that everyone’s selling. Instead of aiming to make a lot per day on 1 product, (the home run), go after unsexy products that sell 10 units per day (solid base hits). To find these, start by making a Touch List. Take a pen and pad and put it by your nightstand. Once you wake up, take it with you and write down EVERY SINGLE product you touch throughout the day. A lot of ideas will come from this. Even if you don’t sell that actual item, you may get an idea to sell a complimentary item. Instead of the vacuum you might sell the filters.
This is why I chose number 10 because it most likely people will want a company that deliver great content good believes and make them feel comfortable in order to be a part of that network to also mo…ve towards there goals and changing their life. See More

Yes the price tag is hefty but this program has an amazing value. Actually my wife got this program and she is now going through the training. There is some work involved and even you need some capital to invest in your initial inventory. I will be updating this review as she launches her 1st product.
“Here’s a question….when private labeling products what steps are taken to ensure you are not infringing on existing design patents, trademarks, etc? Just because I find a product some overseas supplier has I think would be good to private label doesn’t mean the product isn’t already patented in the US. Does ASM cover this? ”
I think you’re right that there will probably be a lot of people who buy this course that really can’t afford it, but I think each individual person has to bear the responsibility of their own financial decisions. I’m sympathetic to people in dire straits, but everyone needs to take personal responsibility. Saying that Matt and Jason should charge less money to accommodate people who would be maxing out their credit cards is a silly suggestion.

All of this to say, these guys are NOT lying that this opportunity is HUGE. If you purchase the course and put it into action, you WILL make your money back in a short time. However, what really rubbed me the wrong way was how everything is presented as “easy” and “anyone can do this.” The truth is, there are headaches, blood, sweat and tears put into this kind of business. It’s not “easy” and you have a lot of roadblocks and failures before finding something that will be successful, but it IS worth it and judging from the free videos and PDFs, these guys DO have some GREAT strategies for doing what I’ve done- and they do it a lot quicker and better! If the price was under $500, I would probably buy, but since I’ve already been through the process, the free information was enough to get some ideas rolling… Hope this helps anyone who is considering this.

Spent 3 weeks up in Cotacochi (north of Quito and worth the day trip – about 2.5 hours in car for 60 USD’s) checking out leather products to import. The prices are awesome for coats, bags, and saddles – But working with the companies there was not efficient for drop shipping purposes. Good products though – tons of artisan goods at great deals. You can also hike the volcanoes around there as well, elevations starting at about 10,000 feet though.
Scott Voelker is the real deal when it comes to private labeling! I’ve been listening to his podcast for a while now and I really LOVE his way of teaching and SHARING his knowledge; most important of all is his being an humble and honest man, giving good advices to beginners and experienced sellers alike, and giving a nice positive vibe with http://sciencethread.com/news/amazing-selling-machine-course-evergreen-launch-2018-start-an-ecommerce-business/0045744/ words and manners. His book reflect all of this and MUCH MUCH more. This is definitely a must for everyone serious about his Amazon business. 5 star for a great book and a great man!
And at least with Skip’s program, you can read about it, gain the knowledge, assess whether selling on Amazon is right for you or not without risking 4-5K dollars on a program that may not do you any good.
When considering complaint information, please take into account the company’s size and volume of transactions, and understand that the nature of complaints and a firm’s responses to them are often more important than the number of complaints.
I have some stuff that I would share here and there with people, but I have a handful of tips/tricks that I would never give away for any amount of money. Even if I collected a large sum of money upfront, it wouldn’t be worth it if the tactics became more common knowledge.
The reason that I brought that up is because it’s an example of the benefits of starting to learn how to do something on your own. I think it is abundantly clear that PLing a product is the best way to sell on Amazon, there is no dispute there. And you know what you have to do! 1) Find product 2) Sell product 3) Get reviews
I’ve had people PM me a lot over the last few weeks asking for coaching and I tell them the same thing. Take what you have now and just start doing it. Feel free to ask me a question if you’d like, but just run with it. If you do that for 8 weeks, you’ll be light-years ahead of where you were.
This comphrensive training program includes over 70 step-by-step tutorial videos (30+ hours of content), with downloadable PDF’s and a private Facebook group community.

ASM 429 – Hydraulic Power Principles and Applications – 3.00 credits: Study of fluid power principles, components, schematics, and systems. Emphasis is on proper use, maintenance, and applications of hydraulic power equipment. Prereq: PHYS 211, Junior standing.
What is going to make the difference between success and failure is your ability to find opportunities and, with regard to private label, your ability to spot opportunities that would work well with private label. The only way I can see how you would develop that ability is just to start doing it.
I’m not dogging ASM for their product because I can already tell the product is way better than PAC. The product itself is probably pretty good; I’m just not sure it’s worth the price. They did a nice job outlining the process in the free videos and the x-factor is your own ability to evaluate opportunities. I think you’re paying for a lot of high-margin/low value add-ons that aren’t really going to move the needle (eg. 7 software tools (not disclosed what they are) and 3-day event). I might be alone in my thinking, but I question the ability of most training courses when it comes to “delivering alpha”.
Thanks for your kind feedback on my Amazing Selling Machine Review. I tried to analyze their program from my experience of working in the importation and drop-shipping industry and give a little perspective on their over-hyped and overpriced program.
Lesson: if you’re looking at high selling products on Amazon don’t base your sales potential on the rankings and reviews of products manufactured by globally known brands like Wilton, Shu Uemera and Tweezerman (that’s what I caught from those videos), look at other UNKNOWN OR GENERIC brands and base it on that. Not brands sold in thousands of retail stores, even high end retailers, covered extensively in consumer magazines with a long history of branding and a lot of direct google searches for their brand name.
