Domestic shipping is pretty straightforward, and that is what they teach. Overseas shipping? Not so much, and they lack big time in the content category for this. They actually talk about it, but not near enough. There is a lot more to overseas shipping than meets the eye, and if you want to know how to do it right, you will need to rely on the forums, because the course itself doesn’t talk too much about it. Most of the opportunities to buy products at wholesale are found overseas (as i found out), and there is a learning curve involved with that, and you are left on your own to figure out for the most part. I found that the majority of the questions on the forums centered around that, and if they just went more into the details of overseas shipping, that that wouldn’t be the case. That’s why the forums (and Facebook group) are so invaluable…

Amazon Commission is 15% of the sales price, but FBA fees are an additional cost. It’s a minimum of about $2.50 per order, but can be higher depending on a couple of factors. On a $25 item, that’s another 10% in fees.
The course is priced high to allow high and lucrative affiliate payouts and bonuses, not because the content is better crafted than any course at $297. The last time the course was launched almost all revenue came from JV partners. They used a proven info product marketing strategy, and it worked beautifully. FWIW, this exact strategy they used is also taught by another info marketer, but the name just escapes me. The pre-launch strategy, the drip, the teasing, setting up the webinars and pdfs so that your JVs get their list properly cookied for commissions, tiered bonuses on the back end. They’re awesome at that!
Format: There are five webinars and each will have a pre- or post-activity to enhance the impact of the presentation. The webinars’ content does not build on the previous webinars in the series. All of the content is independent so learners can purchase only those that meet their needs.
There’s definitely some stuff that I think should have been covered, and I think Matt and Jason should have been more available in the forums, but given the nature of the business model, I don’t think it’s possible for them to have covered everything.
In addition to the Allsvenskan Soccer IPO, ASM has debuted four other IPOs since the start of 2006, introducing Australian Rules Football, Formula-1 Racing, the Republic of Ireland Premier Soccer League, and Finland First Division Soccer to the ASM community of traders.
That’s not exactly my point, I’m saying looks like Some products just not showing up in search that’s is why nothing selling. And by already paying 15% to Amazon in commissions I’m not feeling comfortable paying even more to promote my Amazon product, why do I need them then? How do I sell then If product no where to be found?
Panorama – No issues with your opinion. I provided my thoughts and reasons from my perspective with the exact steps on getting started with a product with a real example for someone. I also provided an alternative if people were interested, but left that last and provided 30 minutes of valuable information.
These incredible people not only have built very successful businesses themselves, but also absolutely LOVE to help people just like you. It’s their form of giving back to the community that’s done so much for them.
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.
Regarding PRs, I didnt say I use PRweb, I was just confirming what someone else mentioned. I do use PR services but more high quality and high price ones now. With that being said, PR DO work, how do I know? One of my products were featured on a well know popular site in USA and the traffic to my product was massive and I also created an optin for another PR to test (that is another topic of conversion). It does depend on the distribution network one uses. Which is why I dont use PRweb, but it is a starting point. Personally any type of PR service that promotes serps increase I would stay away from. But as I said, starting with ASM tool is a starting point on budget.
I was shocked when a simple main image test increased my sales from an average of 11/day to 14/day. That may not sound like much but that results in over $4,000 extra in profit put into my pocket each year. Since sales on Amazon vary from day to day and week to week so much, I would never have known the true winner without doing the proper A/B test through Splitly.
This course gives network administrators, network operators, and network engineers a functional understanding of the BIG-IP system as it is commonly deployed in an application delivery network. The course introduces students to the BIG-IP system, its configuration objects, how it processes traffic, and how typical administrative and operational activities are performed.

My approach is simple – I don’t promote launches or fads. I grow my own business, and if something legit and sustainable is working for me THEN I tell my friends about it & charge a fair price to train those who want training. This way I can hire good people & pay my staff well to train those who want it – all the while we run my businesses DOING what we teach BEFORE we teach it. It’s really not complicated to do the right thing.
Cost of education is really relative to what you gain with the training. If you learn how to earn by importing and can continue to improve upon your importing business, than it probably doesn’t matter.
The only reason I am posting this here is (not to promote… But), a lot of people on WF are pure negative people, all they say are negative things. Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith and run with it AND believe in yourself.

Since I’ve already purchased the ASM course, I will go through the steps and put the work in. I will have to evaluate the value of staying with the course as we get close to the 30 day mark and see if it is worth the spend for me. If so, I’ll keep with it. If not, I’ll refer to steps 1-3 above, albeit with the experience I will have learned throughout the first 20-30 days of the ASM process.
Given that we are private labeling products, there is a chance that those products that you try to PL are already owned by someone else. They legally own the product and no one is allowed to sell it but that owner, but it won’t necessarily show in the resource that they give you (a website that will tell you if there are patents on products). This was brought up numerous times in the discussion forums and such, and in the end, the answer by ASM was, in order to truly find out, you will need to contact an attorney that can look it up for you. And the cost isn’t cheap, i’ll just say that straight up. In the thousands. An ASM member found that out the hard way after he was selling product and got a letter from the owner saying that he is infringing on the product and would need to cease selling it. The ASM member just bought a very large amount of inventory, and now has to scrap it. Money down the toilet. And as bad as that was for this member, i later found out that it could’ve been much worse. People who infringe on others products could pay as much as 3 times earnings (earnings of whatever you made on the product over a certain period of time). And given that the member said that they bought alot of inventory, i assume that they made decent money on the product (or else why buy alot), so as bad as it was for them, it could’ve been MUCH worse…
Joe, you should know that whatever business you put up, online or offline, it’s going to take work to make it successful. Most people don’t care about importing, what we’re really talking about is making money. Plain and simple.
I have decided that buying low and selling high on amazon is the best way to go (for me at least). There are descent services that help you find products. I use FBAMyLife dot com, but FBAfinds is also good. These services find products for you to buy and resell (for a price of course). But they are helpful.
This is a great question. One that I would also like to know, but am not willing to pay 4000 to find out. @Terry… Why don’t we start a new thread called Amazon Private Labeling Q&A, or something like that. Personally I would rather ask questions like yours and get answers, rather than about this course. Isn’t that what this forum is all about? This thread did address the question about ASM, but I think it’s ran it’s course, everything seems to be getting personal and opinionated. I’m going to try to start a Q&A thread:
Location: Anywhere! This course provides essential knowledge to those who do not have a technical background in metallurgical engineering but have a need to understand more about the technical aspects of steel manufacturing, properties and applications.
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.
I felt its worth spending time and money on Oracle DBA training session provided by srini , am from different background and never felt its difficult in shifting my career towards oracle DBA it was that smooth and clean training provided by srini.
I’ve also learned that ANYONE can go through it and be successful, despite their budget. My girlfriend, who doesn’t have much money (she works as a server and goes to school part-time), was able to purchase an inventory of her product (1000 units) for only $600. So you don’t need A LOT of money to get started with it, it all depends on what product or niche you decide to go with. She also has ZERO online marketing experience (she’s been doing everything on her iPad, since her computer is broken) and has been able to understand and complete all of the steps. She is actually much further along than I am with the training and doing better than I am, which amazes me since I am the one with all the online marketing experience!
