I remember when he used to post in the main Facebook group..and he was an excellent contributor then. It did kind of surprise me how he kind of had this big podcast out of nowhere. I thought he genuinely wanted to be helpful, but also thought he enjoys the attention/spotlight as well…and he later confirmed that.
A guy who drove an old Ford pickup his whole life figured out this stuff long ago…importing cheap goods and selling for a higher price. He opened thousands of stores. I should be able to figure out how to get a few products stocked and listed on Amazon. I’ve done extremely well in the past selling on eBay. FBA may have a few technical hurdles, but nothing anything a halfway intelligent person can’t figure out pretty quickly.
Cost: The series is composed of five topics and they can be purchased singularly or as a bundle. The cost is $30 (ASM & CLSI members)/$45 (non-members) per topic or a bundle price of $138 (ASM & CLSI members)/$207 (non-members) for all five topics.

Hey Jake, looks like you’ve put together a fantastic resource for our community. Thanks! I’m a podcaster myself and I must say I was a bit disappointed the AM/PM Podcast at http://www.AMPMpodcast.com didn’t make it on the list. We have over 50 episodes, a very large and active Facebook group community, and I’m devoted to providing value and serving our audience. I like what you guys are doing at Seller Labs and often advocate the use of your products in my podcast. I started the podcast to cover my FBA journey, and have since then generated over $800,000 in sales since December. I invite you to check out our podcast and our community and I hope you’ll see we’re well worth being amongst the podcasts listed here. Thanks! -Manny Coats
There is absolutely nothing preventing some company from suing you for patent infringement. Apple is notorious for that. And it’s not alone. Monsanto sues even the smallest farms for patent infringement, even if the farmer had never done business with them. In one case, a farmer in Illinois was successfully sued for patent infringement, just because Monsanto proved his crop showed evidence of cross pollination with a neighboring farm which used Monsanto patented seeds.

Josh, thank you. I am interested in the community mindset. I have experience marketing and selling products. I am looking for like minds that are serious about discussing ideas. I am not interested in paying for a mentor.
With regard to contacting Amazon customers directly, I think the policy is pretty clear that you can contact them within the context of that transaction and no more. Does ASM advise doing more than that? Asking for reviews is ok as well.
Continue, BayKing, people need to hear the truth. Please continue, tell us more. Elaborate. You should also contact the hundreds of people who left positive feedback about me (start on this page). Enlighten them how I have totally fooled them. Write away, amazon course spend lots of time on this.
If you have a budget, every little thing can help. However, I would wait to you have a website. I don’t know if people will buy your product from a PR. It’s made to bring attention and hopefully some other media coverage.
In fact, in one conversation with Matt over Torchy’s Tacos in Austin, TX, he and I discussed how this business model didn’t have any “hacks” or “tricks.” There are no gimmicks, no “gaming the system,” just real businesses. Nothing that is going to get you “slapped,” and no loopholes that suddenly disappear once someone catches on. This is a business that gets built over the long term and lasts for years.

But as long as I do it correctly, It should work! But I also have no problem breaking even and getting a great learning experience in the process if it did not work on the first go around. Then I would just tray again.
I doubt that ASM is having a huge impact on the competition anyways because private labeling is just something that anyone selling on Amazon would figure out. I think ASM probably appeals to people with no experience on Amazon and they think of it as some sort of “secret”. But if you’re doing even small volume on Amazon, this should be a logical next step.
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.
Are you saying that you did NOT create those videos with the intention of earning affiliate commissions? If I recall, you end the first video by telling people check out your second video…so while they may technically be separate videos, there was a clear transition between the two and they were both part of the same sales funnel.
Thanks, Jeff. At first, I was hesitant to tell people about a program with such a high price as ASM. But after seeing how much it has benefited those who were able to sign up for the course, I quickly changed my mind. However, even then, I’ve had some hesitation about taking the plunge and investing so much money into the program. Finally, I drew up a plan – to save X every week for this and as soon as I can afford to pay half of the price up front, I would join the next edition. Which is NOW 🙂
In the beginning, making money online was as easy as taking candy from a baby – but do not try this baby-larceny. Trust me, this is an arrestable offense. Anyway, all I had to do at that time was find good offers and use Google Adwords to advertise and sell stuff.

Whenever I’ve been involved with a training program, there are basically 3 types of people; people that succeed, people that don’t succeed, and people that act like they are succeeding. The 3rd group is probably the most dangerous because they act like they are a success story….these are usually the type of people that become moderators because they know the training material very well, but have never been able to implement it successfully. These are also the people that try to use this “notoriety” to launch their own products or training programs. I can give you a long and very specific example of this but I don’t want to bore you with the details.
Is it possible to net at least $2k in 10 days learning from your affiliate program? What’s the average time to learn your program, anyway? What is the average margin of success of those who took immediate action? I appreciate your answer. Thank you.
But your review of ASM was clearly (to me) an attempt to shuffle people to other products where you’d earn an affiliate commission. Anyone with any real experience should know that many of your points were baseless.

You know the search terms that your buyers use when you get them in via Pay Per Click (PPC), but what about the organic sales, what search terms are those buyers using? Imagine the benefit that would be to your efforts if you knew what search there those buyers were using!
On the financial risk, well, no getting around that. The name of the game is buying and sending stuff to amazon for them to sell. So I guess that’s considered risk, but so is spending money on PPC or developing an infoproduct. There’s actually more risk there because, unlike hard assets, once you spend money on PPC…it’s GONE. At least with Amazon you can dump your products for cheap if you want to get out.
Less than 2 weeks after their course has ended I can’t believe these guys are now promoting a big ticket drop shipping course to their members after telling them at the start of ASM that drop shipping was a stupid idea, it’s quite hard to believe anything these guys say
