DaleCalvert has a good point here. I’ve read through the last few negative posts and some of the comments are comical if you really understand how off the mark they are…I just don’t have the energy to comment on every inaccuracy.
I have come to the realization that I can’t do all of the promotion myself so I have hired some outsourcers to help me with that. It looks like I will only need them for a month per product and I will have everything completed since most of it is all up front work. If you have a decent amount of spare time, you could do it yourself and not need to outsource it but my situation is different.
THe broad brush that Malik paints with regard to private-labeling is ridiculous. Sure, I wouldn’t want to private label some health supplements, but I’m not sure I would be ready to eliminate the possibility of selling thermal printer labels in my own packaging. It’s the equivalent of calling the entire e-commerce industry “risky” because of potential problems associated with poker websites.
As I stated earlier, I am a member currently doing about 50K in revenue a month using the tactics taught in ASM, completely replaced the job I quit last march doing cable tv installations. Its totally doable for almost anyone, the only thing you need is a little capital to get the ball rolling of course, thats the nature of selling your own products on amazon (drop-shipping sucks!)
The interesting thing is The Amazing Selling Machine guys have been doing this for 4-5 years in a row, with the same company name and same address. If they were underhanded or crooked or doing anything illegal, they would have had to dissolve and/or change names and/or re-package under a different name, and/or receive a class action suit and/or a big consumer outrage, and I don’t see any of that. I think their offer, program, and money-back guarantee is ‘fair’ and they’ve operated fairly. It’s just their price point is considerably higher than what you can find comparably with (say) Proven Amazon Course (just one example).
And the thing that really irks me is that if you have no experience in selling on Amazon, those reports actually make your sales look a lot better than they actually are because they are the gross amount and not net of fees/product costs.
The $3.500 is way too low for what they are giving you for your money. If you ever had a real business you would have known this is really low-cost what you are paying but not low-cost what you are getting.
In the nutshell the whole concept behind Amazing Selling Machine (ASM) is to teach you how to drop ship products on Amazon. They show you how to get the maximum profits by buying products at low prices on Alibaba or any other whole seller and re-sell them at 30-100% margins.
During Module 2 of the Amazing Selling Machine, you will be instructed to come up with a list of at least 10 Amazon product ideas. You will then be required to narrow it down to 3 of the very best ones. As part of this bonus, you will be able to e-mail me your list of product ideas (up to 10) and I will give you my honest feedback and suggestions on the niches that you’ve selected and advise you on what product I think would be the most profitable for you.

I know one affiliate who pulled in well over $100k in affiliate commissions the last time, I also know what product he’s been trying to sell on Amazon himself, and it’s a dud, he’s now practically trying to give it away to get rid of inventory, how do I know this?, because I’m on his list, sorry to rain on anyones parade, but those are the fact’s folks
You have to stop and realize it has been reported that …. up to 1/3 of all online sales in the US are done on Amazon. If those numbers are even close to being true, as a marketer, to not learn how to tap into that market makes no sense.
I hear what you are saying, it is a tough call, I can see a lot of people giving up before the magic has happened. This is a lot of money i understand. I have in fact told a few people about this, whether or not they jump in is beyond me, $200 a day isnt really mouth watering to them.
In September 2013, I started receiving emails from every “guru” and his dog about the Amazing Selling Machine (ASM) by Jason Katzenback and Matt Clark (which is not surprising after I found out that about $2000 out of the $4000 price for ASM is paid out as affiliate commission to people who promote it). The promo videos were certainly well done and I was intrigued by the idea of creating and selling my own private label products on Amazon. I was ready to join in after going through the long series of sales pitch videos, then they dropped the price bombshell.
My focus is getting someone started as fast as they want and getting sales. My philosophy is that the money they saved in comparison to ASM amazing.com review my course, they use that money to invest into their product order and marketing.
Azzurent stores are, for the most part, consistent in the products they carry. Think about if you were to go to a Walmart in California vs. a Walmart in Boston. There may be different variations of the types of products that they sell – clothing, etc. – but the types of products would be the same.
So I struggle with the concept of selling an item that is already there. Not to mention going against a well established seller with a few hundred reviews. My choice would be clear as to whom I would purchase from.
Enough of this, the attention should be on the course and reviews, which I have posted. My time in this thread has now expired. I am sure in the foreseeable future their will be more proof from other members on their success. God bless
Anyway, that process took me 4 weeks and I am just now sending my inventory to Amazon to start selling. I could have been selling weeks ago if I didn’t go that route so it is my choice, not because of the program or anything else.

5. Get a good idea of if your product is selling – Even though eBay isn’t your end goal, search the product and hit the completed listing to the left to see how much of that product is selling. Consider if its all brand name or no name and know that it’s simple to stand out of the no names…create a logo (I did mine on fiverr and got it revised once I knew I had a hit) and watermark it over no name products. Make sure you take the pic and its not the same pic the factory sends…that means anyone can have access to that pic, thus you won’t stand out.
The most important takeaway for you, whether you buy ASM, another course/system, or learn on your own for free: Take action. I’ve seen hundreds of sellers fail because they don’t take the first few steps – they just prematurely quit. Take action, follow through, ask questions, and pick yourself up if you fall down.
