First off- Everything you want to know about selling on Amazon can be obtained from Jim Cockrum’s course, it just doesn’t come with glitz and glamour (which ASM has mostly due to the affiliate promotions).
I can tell you now that signing up 100 people and having training days and bonuses and so forth takes a lot of money and time and effort. That time can be spent managing teir own business and making it a lot more profitable however as i said its about giving back to those that helped us.
Hi Andrey. Thanks for your feedback. Yes indeed there is a ton of information out there on how to start your online Ecommerce business. The main difference between starting on your own and joining ASM – is time and experience. With ASM you will be saving a ton of time where is starting on your own can take different curves and this is where many new folks get discouraged after spending so much time figuring out every little component.
CleanTAS 305 : INCOME Update and Future Plans for TAS (Mission 2017) You never know what’s going to happen when you start something. Things can go way beyond what you thought would happen – which is exactly where things have gone for Scott Voelker.

Regarding if a customer sees your product and a well-known brand. The online market place has changed so much now. Our goal ultimately is to target impulsive buyers when starting to build momentum and gaining reviews, there are millions on Amazon every min of the day. So as long as we have awesome images, very good optimzied listing, and min 3 reviews sales will come.
Scott – I can only find time during my 5:30am workouts to listen before I jump back into my corporate rat race, but hope that can stop in a year or two.Thanks to you I’ve taken action and will be learning my own lessons the hard way, but avoiding some because of your phenomenal content. I’m still in your 2015 podcast episodes but want to catch up as soon as I can.BTW – I know some people tell you the term is “Housekeeping”, but hey, say “HouseCleaning” if that what makes you tick (and I love it) – we get it.I’ll try to keep in touch with my progress and undoubtedly seek advice from you and the community of listerners you’ve built! CheersEaton
“In March of 2016, we launched our first product on Amazon. In our first 12 months, we sold over $528,000 in products! We’ve averaged over $80k in sales for the past 4 months and are on pace to sell over $1 million dollars in products this year – only our second year in business.
That being said, if you haven’t expanded internationally, Marketplace Superheroes is definitely where I’d start to learn about this. However, ASM is supposed to be including a new “International” module with the amazon seller training courses launch, so it’s probably worth waiting to see how good their content is since you already own it.
I will say though that Rusty Moore above recommending this Amazing Selling Machine product was interesting as he doesn’t recommend much (if anything) and even told his list(which is one of the few I am on) that he isn’t going to email his list anymore as he doesn’t care for recommending IM products to people and would rather focus on his own business. He very easily could just keep recommending the latest and greatest products but doesn’t want to.
CleanTAS 203 : How to Turn Frustration (Product Dud) Into Success (Real Story) Part of the equation in business is that you’re going to hit roadblocks and frustrations. It’s simply going to happen. Today’s episode highlights a real Amazon seller’s disappointments with his product sales and Scott has a lot to say about it. 5/16/2016 Free View in iTunes
However, when you’ve looked into a number of programs like I have and you understand how to sell on Amazon and eBay, how to drop-ship and use Amazons Fulfillment Center, I think it becomes obvious that the education that the Amazing Selling Machine is charging for their program can be found for a much better price.
The first newsletter was ok, but the second one, not so much. I’d rather that they stick to business strategies and, like you said, how to grow a business. I don’t care for the mindset stuff so much. I’m already a member in another group for those things (mindset and self help), so i don’t need that in the ASM newsletter. Just stick to things concerning growing my Amazon business. I don’t care about anything else. So i’ll see if the next newsletter is up to snuff, and if it isn’t, I’ll probably cancel….
First and foremost, thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread. It took me a ton of time to go through everything from the beginning, but I’ve learned a ton about Amazon, FBA, ASM, PL, and other acronyms…
I would like to ask you, in your honest opinion, is the course worth it? Does it really spell things out for you and help you select the right kind of products to sell and tell you exactly how to rank them so they sell?
Jim Cockrum the PAC Course, Coaching, and many free resources it’s all the real deal? I have learned a lot of valuable stuff that Amazon and the Amazon Forums just doesn’t have available. These are all people that truly want to help each other, it is a community of like minded people all helping each other. In a word it’s just awesome. My own success has been limited because I have a full time job commitment and a big family that needs my time, as it should be.
This is a comprehensive, but concise guide to getting started with selling Private Label products on Amazon. Easy to follow and understand, Scott Voelker lays a solid foundation for launching your own Amazon business.
I am launching a second product as well and Amazon flagged it for review for being a possible restricted or hazardous product. Kind of funny as it is a basic cosmetic product. I guess something in the description flagged them and it is standard procedure. However, that put me almost 2 weeks behind.

A badge system to help you keep track of all your accomplishments inside ASM. Not only does this build a sense of support and community, but it has proven to help members stay on track and reach their goals as quickly as possible.
I have a few friends who wanted to try out, after seeing my small success. But I told them not to join (due the expensive course fee). I am now working with them on a partnership basis on their amazon business, and it’s a win-win situation.
I saw the promotion for this too and was quite intrigued. But to ask $3,500 for just a few videos they presented, I found that to be ridiculous. So I went on Amazon and searched for a book that teaches FBA. I found 2 good books on kindle each costing under $5. One is “Amazing Amazon FBA Work From Home The Easy Way” and the other “Making a Great Living with Fulfillment by Amazon”. The books are very informative and will give FBA a go.
Drew founded his first ecommerce company, DesignPublic.com, shortly after receiving his MBA from Stanford and went on to sell it in 2011. Since then, he’s started 2 other agencies and consults regularly with Fortune 500 ecommerce companies.
Seriously…hahaha. It’s kinda like that one dude in this forum said he made a net profit of 500 million last year. It’s so ridiculous that you have to wonder about the level of delusion that is going on.
1. Sampling does have cost, at least for first time customers who orders smaller quantity and cares ‘minimum quantity’ a lot. But in most cases, it’s not big cost because all suppliers willing to sample for you expect to make money on the following orders, not the sample itself.
Either that, or as a long time seller via both FBA and in house fulfillment, I’ve really missed some important aspects of selling on Amazon because in my experience only sellers with deep pockets willing to live on crumbs generate any sales.
