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.
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.
I looked at PAC but I am not impressed because they are all theories, all talking on videos, no step by step process, sorry to say, way overpriced for $347 or $99. But I am impressed on the information of free PDF of Amazon Selling Machine because it’s like you do it step by step. I can do things “step by step” and get bored quickly with just watching videos full of talks.
The supplements “path” with ASM is not doing that. You are not reinventing the wheel. You are rather using a unique research system to find what people are already looking for and proven formulas and putting your own branding and marketing.

If you are brand new to the idea of private labeling, this eBook is a great starting point to get the rough idea. Although I am yet to personally launch an Amazon labeled product, I have conducted a fair amount of research before purchasing this eBook. As a result, I already knew most of the content in here. It does not go into DEEP detail on the various steps of launching a product, but does cover enough information to make it an informative read. It is well-written but simply did not suit all my needs. However, any knowledge gained is better than nothing, and for the small price tag I do not regret the purchase.
For a long time I was very curious on how to sell products on Amazon and invest as little money as possible. I have read a ton of educational materials online and even tried reselling products from China on Amazon but I could not get desired success as I was doing something wrong. These were my main concerns:
Of course, we are here to build brand, not just sell something. This module brings you 15 lessons, and by now you should have your product samples on the way. You will know the method to select the best supplier, prepare inventory, build a brand name, and so much more.
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….
This month (April 2015), the company is on pace to do about $350,000 this month alone. That’s almost four million dollars on a business that is less than two years old – and profit margins are about 50%.
not any specific examples I can link to. Just people answering questions that shouldn’t be answering questions– sounding like they’re the authority when they’re giving out false information (not intentionally, I’m sure)
As he said it was not easy to start but eventualy things are automated. But you are always looking for something new to sell and the circle spins all the time. There’s also big starting investment and a lot of people who tried the system was stopped by that fact.
As I said, I would like to add PL as well to what I do. But that is a steep price tag to start with. But it seems that is the way to sell with the Amazon platform. Going to explore other options to this path.
So there is a market void just created, in my opinion, that says Experienced FBA sellers want to learn more about Private Labeling. If any of you experienced guys fill that void with a book or something more reasonable, I’m in.

I’m not sure what products the ASM guys target, but that’s generally not the way I do it. I will test the market with “generic” products that I get from domestic sellers. That typically requires a small investment (typically there are no minimums) and I’ll send it in to see how fast the inventory will turn. If it moves quick, then I know that I have a winner so it’s only a matter of muscling the price down to the point where I make the margin that I need. I buy the product overseas, get it branded with my logo, and create the listing.

(Some of them will respond to this post and say “Yeah but we have ___________ features that make us really unique from the rest!”. That’s a great selling point but it’s not critical to you pulling off private label successfully. I don’t care what the features are.)
Support is offered by private community and mentors who can answer any question. The best part is that you will receive support from many experienced members (mentors) of ASM who average $1 million in sales a year. And trust me you want this support when you spent $4K and really trying to get the best out of your investment.
The “theory” behind the PAC (Proven Amazon Course) is one that should be modeled for ANY legitimate course or training offered in the “online entrepreneur” niche. It’s time to raise the standards of what we expect from the courses we buy.
Well, to be frank, I think I know a decent amount about SEO. I’ve been doing this since 2005 and have generated millions in sales from organic traffic. I also know that “trickery” that used to work in 2010 doesn’t work today. I stand by my statement that tools like this are simply re-purposing old software that they can’t sell as “SEO Software” anymore. Instead, they call it “Amazon Software” and expect everyone to fawn all over it. Of course, backlinks still work, but crappy push-button backlinks don’t.
That is what I’m trying to do with this review, offer a bit of honesty in a whirlwind of marketing hype. Let people discover what the Amazing Selling Machine really is. If they’ve got some tricks, let us know.
No Amazon course (or any other course for that matter) is worth $4,000. However well-presented the information may be, the fact of the matter is that a lot of stuff relating to selling on Amazon can be found on Amazon itself. The bulk of ‘ASM’ teaches you how to sell white label products. This is just one of the many ways to sell on Amazon. Is that really worth $4,000?
Like I taught in my free presentation, finding the product and supplier is not that hard. The toughest part and where specific training from a proven seller can help is getting your product ranked on page 1 and top 3.
That is SO TRUE. My brother is on his list too ….. initials are MC. He’s holding “special webinars for only his subscribers” to promote this product (tries to make everyone feel special). Him and the others promoting this only have to sell about 30 copies to pull in 100K – knowing full well that most people won’t be able to refund since it’s only 30 days and not long enough to get a real feel for it, if you’re a beginner – which is 80% of their target market.
