I’ve built a lot of businesses in my day – I’ve had review sites that made $20,000 per month. I’ve done launches and made $250,000 in a week. I’ve built sales funnels, done consulting, I own a restaurant, and I invest in real estate…
Back in 2006 I was running (and still am) an ecommerce store that was doing very well. The argument used to be (in the days of adsense) “Well, I don’t want to deal with the hassle of physical products”. So instead of making .20/visitor like I was ($20 profit for every 100 visitors), they were making about .01/visitor (5% CTR @ 25 cents per buying from dhgate and selling on ebay So they essentially needed 20x more traffic to make the same amount of money that I was making. Now what is more difficult?

But honestly, I think people are just way way way overestimating the difficulty in selling on amazon. It’s very simple when you compare it to some of the things IMers were required to do back in the old days.

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.
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!)
I am in fact double their price. This works 2013-06-19_0151 – DarrenJM’s library, as you can see within 30 days I have made my money back (well not the course money, but inventory.) I am big enough to say I was wrong. I know their are haters here, hating on this course. Well all I can say is, you keep hating, this method works and will only get better, I have been adding my own methods to really explode this.
It’s all relative, but the value you’ll see is largely based on the individual, not the course. I consider the cost to be cheap relative to what you get. I make more than double the cost of the course EVERY WEEK as a result of what I’ve learned. In fact, I personally emailed Matt Clark at one point and suggested he should be charging upwards of $10k for the course going forward because I think it’s underpriced (he declined my suggestion).
The new price is $3,500. I just signed up. It looks pretty good. The community is very responsive and appear to be helping one another. Our first session will be on May 1st. Will keep everyone posted on my progress.
If I take myself as a case, to answer your question, it took me til around week 10 or so (if I remember back correctly) working approximately 2-3 hours a day on my first product (I was, at that time, running a management consultancy full time).
2. “Can you write copy?”; “can you create a product listing?” “Can you find a supplier?” etc These questions apply to any business – ASM is not a magic silver bullet, or a shiny object. There are no quick fix solutions.
Lifetime moneyback guarantee. This beat the 30 day ASM look-in period hands down, which teases you with insufficient crumbs to get you past that 30 day point of no return. On the other hand, PAC has been around for over 10 years and they have a stellar support team that stands 100% behind what they say.
3) Once I’ve had some success, then I might seek out the ASM course as something that would supplement the knowledge I’ve already built up. As Panorama said, the course added to his own knowledge and experience so it was worth it for him at that time.
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
How so? Because I recommended a business carry the proper insurance. You price that insurance out based on selling umbrellas and selling supplements and, when the prices come back, you can tell me that supplements carry the same amount of risk.
I currently belong to Lisa’s paid membership and have purchased a number of books from Skip McGrath including his wholesale buying guide just recently. I buy from others also and although a lot of material I get I already know and use I always seem to pick up one of two good tips that I was not familiar with and would never have known to search for them without purchasing various products.
Hype like the Amazing Selling Machine is going to make you rich. You have to do the work in whatever business you get in to, and that’s not how the Amazing Selling Machine portrays their business at all.

I’m open to discussion, but haven’t seen anything else to convince me otherwise, I do sell on Ebay make about $2500 net per month, but each month I buy about $3000-4000 in inventory. Most sellers simply outspend the competition and can negotiate better prices.
These particular price points, though, are the lowest. My normal selling price on amazon ranges from $36-$140. I could only go into selling something with a low profit if the cost was really really low.

Initially what caught my attention was its price tag: $4,997. I’ve bought cars for less than that! I thought, “What kind of program charges $5k in this economy?” Prices for most Internet marketing programs are going down to $27 – $37 – maybe $397, if it’s really good.
If you’re using a sourcing site like Alibaba (which isn’t the most reputable, but is the most popular) you will see it in your queries. If you see a lot of infringement in your search results, it would make more sense to just steer away from that mdse until you got more experience in the market.
Use the 999 trick. Take your competitors product. Click Add to Cart. In the quantity box put 999. Amazon will come back and tell you something like “sorry, we only have 630 units available.” DO NOT purchase! Record the time. At the exact time the very next day, go and do it again. If it says only 620 available, then you know they sold 10 units within a 24 hour period. Do this for the next 5-7 days. Record all the numbers and get the average. Compare their BSR to how many products they’re selling each day. That’s a baseline for products in that category. Every category is different.
While I don’t think the opportunity for private labeling is drying up, there seems to be a big increase in competition in various categories and the front-runners are likely running away with bigger leads at this point.
The overall strategy makes sense, but it really has little to do with the traditional IM product. This is all about selling a physical product via an online marketplace. I think the reason it’s being promoted to the IM space is because people are looking for the magic way to make millions and this product promises that.
