I figured this thing must be either a complete make-me-poorer scam, or a FANTASTIC product that people are desperate to buy. I watched all the ASM videos. Just like ObamaCare, it sounded too good to be true. It seemed too easy to find products and suppliers using ASM and to start making incredible sales with Amazon.
I guess that most of them send us the same email scam: “Very good friend of mine who is great guy makes $1,00000000000 a month on Amazon, eBay, online etc. I personally use his system and never looked back bla,bla,bla….”
Jim Cockrum is the most respected online and doesn’t push stuff just to make a quick buck like most others do. He actually wants to give his readers VALUE, as well. If all the other IM marketers truly wanted to help their readers in this area, they would be affiliates for Jim Cockrum. But money seems to play a huge part in what is promoted.
In fact, in one conversation with Matt over Torchy’s Tacos in Austin, TX, he and I discussed how this business model didn’t have any “hacks” or “tricks.” There are no gimmicks, no “gaming the system,” just real businesses. Nothing that is going to get you “slapped,” and no loopholes that suddenly disappear once someone catches on. This is a business that gets built over the long term and lasts for years.
That makes sense and is reassuring. I agree about the false information from some folks in the FB group. I think the most value I get from the group right now is hearing about new tools (often what Scott recommended).
Otherwise, it’s a tough call. As much as it’s worked well for me, I’ve seen a lot of people struggle. So, this is a serious question. I’m asking because I just don’t have the perspective of not having prior experience on Amazon.

Now, the main objective of the program is to guide you to build amazin products highly profitable business and that too by selling your own brand of physical products by leveraging the power of Amazon. ASM8 is a complete course on selling on Amazon by using Fulfillment By Amazon. This just means you source items from wholesalers and then send them into FBA so Amazon takes care of everything for you.
The problem is that they can’t. In a store like that, sure, you can make very minor adjustments in each department, but you can’t go putting the extra helmets for sale right next to the air conditioners.
The Amazing Seller podcast is one of the more popular FBA podcasts, and deservedly so. Scott works hard to have resources for seasoned sellers, and beginners. With more than 200 episodes under his belt, The Amazing Seller is bursting with content and covers a ton of Amazon topics. Our only gripe with the podcast is that every episode is nearly an hour long. This can be great when looking for an in-depth discussion of a topic, but it can also make the podcast difficult to digest at the risk of fluff. Overall this is a can’t-miss podcast for any seller.
What is it like to appear on Shark Tank? What lessons from that experience can leaders like you come away with? Is it a good idea to expect an immediate return on your investment when you are building up a brand from scratch? You’ll hear all about these topics and more on this special episode of The Amazing Seller! On this episode, Scott welcom ……
But it was SO simple, that I kept saying to Matt: “Hey man, so what’s the secret to getting things off the ground?” And he kept answering, “I don’t have any secrets dude. Just create a good product and connect it with customers that want it. Amazon will handle the rest.”
@Tooledyou – Drop shipping and wholesaling is only an income stream. You only are making money for your right now. You can’t sell this business, there is no value to another person because your are the person.

Thanks to Scott and the information off his podcasts i’ve sold just over 100 units in 40 days and got 43 reviews so far and my sales rank is 4,000. Once I get to 100 reviews I am hoping my item will be solid.
I followed the promotional videos for the ASM a while back and at the time I remember I was quite impressed. But, they keep the price until the end and when I saw how much it was I followed no further.
