CleanTAS 255 : Amazon Changes the Game Once Again with Brand Registered Brands (Round Table Discussion) Occasionally Scott likes to have round table type discussions with people who he’s come to know through his experience selling private label products on Amazon. On this episode, he’s recorded their conversation which was originally published to Face 9/14/2016 Free View in iTunes
This business is not difficult, all one has to do is find what is selling well and replicate the core product. Pay attention to when I say CORE product, its your job to differentiate your product. That could be different packaging, box whatever it might be to make it look high quality.
Thanks for the informed article. You really covered this well. I had a look at this a while back and it was the huge price tag that had me running for cover. Since then I have seen a few that do not cost an arm and a leg, training is good and so is the support. I think it depends on how big your wallet is. If you can afford this, then go for it as they seemed very legit and knowledgeable.
I will certainly check out everything you’ve mentioned here and may very well invest some time into your affiliate program. I’ll imagine that I’ve just “found” $5000 dollars after not investing in the ASM program.

One crucial part of joining ASM that NOBODY is talking about is that the bonus package you choose is super important. I know you’re probably bombarded with emails about ASM from different affiliates, but if you don’t pick the right bonus package, you won’t be very successful.
But honestly, unless you’re looking for specific info (like expanding internationally), the best option for someone who’s already at your level is to just network with other successful sellers. Develop a close group of people you trust and communicate with them regularly.
Jordan Malik is a best-selling author, podcaster, serial entrepreneur and award-winning Amazon merchant. Jordan has been interviewed by Time, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, and several entrepreneur podcasts and publications.
Students also have lifetime access to the course and all updates. I also do a monthly Q&A coaching call so that students can get their specific questions answered about sourcing products for their Amazon sales channel.
I have been listening to this podcast daily. I have already found a product and ordered a sample to begin with selling on Amazon FBA. I feel so much more confident in starting up thanks to Scott’s great advice and awesome interviews with guests. I can’t stop listening! Almost ready to launch!
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 should have shopped around for my affiliate. However, I should learn something about marketing and traffic through the one I went through. Will know to do so next time some big course like this comes along.
CleanTAS 292 : Ask Scott Session #88 – Your Business and Marketing Questions What’s the deal with this year? It’s just flown by! Here we are in the 4th quarter, the first part of December 2016 and we’re looking at Christmas coming up. But there is lots to be concerned about that’s much more important than product sales. 12/9/2016 Free View in iTunes
It’s not a case of which product is cheaper -the important thing is which one generates greatest value. If you shop around, you’ll find a major affiliate offering a full money back guarantee, not just of the course fee but of your stock and expenses, if you can’t get it to work, as long as you have watched the first 4 videos and implemented their content. This speaks volumes for their belief in what they are offering.
So to put it as basically as possible it is an 8 week course where you are taught to find your own products, private label them and take full advantage of FBA (fulfillment By Amazon) to take orders, ship and handle the bulk of your business operations. In their own words:
I underwent training in this DBA university and the faculty is amazing…I didnt expect this much of information to be acquired out of this training. The faculty uses white board and instant lab sessions, so you will feel like typical classroom training and since the lab sessions are completed then and there, you dont need to work hard after the session gets over. You just need to be focused and follow instruction of the faculty to become a expert DBA either in core concepts or in RAC,ASM and DG. The training is truly amazing and enhanced my knowledge multi fold.
I rarely take the time to comment on forums, but sometimes the “Lack” mindset of “Warriors” is just too overwhelming. Why some people feel they need to comment about that which they know nothing about is perplexing.
Chris, it’s great to hear that you are now having big success selling on Amazon, I thought supplements had big profit margins, puzzled how your 1st 2 products produced such a big lose as you say that they will eventually sell out
Sorry if I come across rude, I just wanted to sate the facts, most of your reply is incorrect. Most people dont know how to blacklink and use services correctly, they are the ones shouting out “it dont work”.
Bioinformatics tools are an increasingly important part of microbiology, and many of the most popular tools run on the command line. In this half-day hands-on workshop, participants will learn the basics of working on the command line, including navigating directories, working with files, and installing and running a software package.

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.
This is the thing that bothers me most about how these courses are advertised. You see people saying “Oh, I sell this for $20 and it costs me $5 from China”. Yeah, that’s all well and good until you figure in the costs to get it to you, to package it, to ship it to amazon, to sell it on amazon, etc. And then you have the period where you are gaining traction; it’s not like you just list and sell a ton of them right off the bat.
I’m still around Travis. I have been absorbed in building this business over the last year while trying to also maintain the one I had before this one. I haven’t checked this thread much but took a look today.
With that in mind, there have been many many people who balked at the price, yet still got inside and have seen amazing results. And many of them are in my coaching group, which I’ll discuss in a second.
I promote Skip McGrath, a real power seller on both Amazon on eBay, over this product because I used many of his training’s to make over $1,500/week importing. And about a half a year ago I was talking with him about some of his courses when I realized that ASM asked him to be an affiliate for them.
To say that videos and press releases are going to generate sales on amazon is one of the worest pieces of advice these 2 guys are giving to members, just a massive waste of time and effort for very very little reward. The fact is this is just one of the ways that this course has been padded out with a lot of dated information so it becomes a “big” course
3- People care about that. Do you care what brand spatula you use? No. Maybe, maaayyyyybe when I go to the store i’ll pick OXO over something else, but really, who cares. Your supplements– people care.
Update (Feb 2017): Proven Private Label 2.0 has just launched (As of 17 Oct 2017, please don’t buy PPL2.0 on it’s own as it’s now included in PAC). I have started going through the course and can say that it’s very similar to what I do. Most of my sales are in fact “Private Label the Easy Way” type products, including my first and oldest private label product which is currently ranked Top 1.9% in Beauty and another easy way SKU at Top 0.014855% in Industrial & Scientific! One note: All the “Proven” modules are initially launched as standalone courses. They can be purchased separately for those who want to get them at launch. However if they are related to selling on Amazon, they will be added to the Proven Amazon Course about 6 months after launch. This means that if you buy the Proven Amazon Course, you get continual updates at no additional cost – making PAC an incredible value, with course content that is constantly being improved and updated.

After you pick your product, you will learn where & how to find suppliers for your product. You’ll learn everything whether you want to source from the USA in case you sell things like supplements. And you will learn how to source from marketplace superheroes mainly using Alibaba.
There’s Cindy, who had been a “lone wolf” in this business before joining The Tribe. She had seen modest success, but after joining the Tribe, her business tripled. She now enjoys a million dollar business from what she learned and the connections that she made inside of The Tribe.
What do you do when a negative review starts gaining traction and people keep upvoting it on your product listing? Is there any way to combat this difficult situation or do you just have to suffer through it?
timpears, yeah that is the nuts n blots of it, sure! Let me ask you a question. What happens when things dont go your way? i.e a product is not selling well, or your not sure that product is worth going for or if that niche is brand driven? What happens if you dont have family or friends in the county you plan on launching your product in?
