Building a successful Amazon business can be done but it takes time. It takes nurturing and consistency. Make a 90-Day plan. What will it take to make $100 every day? Work backwards. It takes time and sacrifice in the beginning. Maybe you have to watch a little less Netflix. Maybe you have to skip some parties. However when you have the monthly cash flow coming in, it’ll totally be worth it.
I have to say I agree with bayking here. I’ve seen your blog and have watched a lot of your videos. I respect you for what you’ve accomplished with your Amazon business model and how you’ve transitioned that into becoming somewhat of an authority figure on the subject – you’re a good marketer in that respect.
You sound like the voice of experience. It’s really hard when you get something all figured out then they change the system or yank the rug out from under you – especially when it happens over and over again. That’s why I like to be my own boss and the Selling Machine sounds like a way to do just that. You’re right, it’s expensive, but if you make lots of money while using it, then so be it. Besides, if there’s a money back guarantee how can you go wrong? Thanks for the tip!
Ok, I looked through the Proven Amazon Course mentioned above and it does cover the FBA basics and seems good. Much of the content was done in a couple years ago. It covers a lot about selling books through Amazon FBA and the strategy of finding cheap clearance items at local Walmart/target …I didn’t see anywhere where it shows you how to remove yourself from the process of having to package,label, and ship your products to Amazon FBA. to.
I have not posted in a long time, but what is really sad about this is for marketers who did have some trust to push this out to their list … I got this from email from Jay Boyer namely the Jay, John, James, Matt email@example.com
If any of this page has sparked your interest, please continue onto chapter 2. Everything is completely free – we will tell you how to do everything from sourcing products, to selling products… all the way to growing exponentially and outsourcing all of the legwork.
A word of encouragement, it’s not that difficult and if you follow the process you will get through it fairly quickly. Once the money starts rolling in, usually in about week 10 or so, the feeling of earning great money is greater than the work effort!
And if they are selling supplements, that really says a lot. I take product sales advice from supplement sellers much differently because that market is very different and has some particularities that don’t really exist in most other product markets. Let me just lay some of them out for people who do not know so they have context:
If someone really, really, really wants to sell on Amazon, and has no experience it is a better strategy to buy a less expensive course use some of that money to buy your seed inventory— get an early win, prove the concept FOR YOURSELF, then go for a bigger course once you can justify it.
One of Scott’s students found a home run this way on accident. A product that sells 75 units a day. Dig deep in the sub categories. Think about your passions and hobbies. Think about your problems or the problems of your friends and family. Ideas are all around you.
Everything you said makes a lot of sense…and funnily enough I actually just subscribed to his free PL course. I might as well do this for the next 10 days and then see how I feel and this can by my test to see if I will stick with it…I really just want to have a good enough reason to leave my current job, but it pays too well and I’m a recent graduate with no real skills sooooo…Anyway thank you!!!
This is a special technique built specifically to teach you how to build this business. Each lesson in the web class is hyper-focused and includes the exact information you need to get to the next step in your business.
As everyone else who got in the program, I watch each and every training video that was released. The most frustrating part of this business is how long it takes for your actual product to arrive at Amazon. For me personally, it took about 10 weeks to get my product sourced, designed, labeled and shipped to Amazon.
Jim Cockrum’s course is great. The only downside is he focuses on a retail arbitrage process and that can be difficult to scale and sustain, and for some people it’s just not doable. However, all the basic building blocks are there. Where Amazing Selling Machine improves is by focusing on manufacturing, branding and marketing. Or private labeling, branding and marketing. But you don’t need the course to do that. However, you do need to understand how to purchase from manufacturers and/or distributors, the basics of branding and product promotion and marketing.
Amazing FBA, led by Michael Veazey, is a Podcast, community and set of resources for any UK Amazon Seller (though we welcome all visitors, including our many American, Australian, Canadian and German visitors).
I think the Amazing Selling Machine is way too expensive for someone who is new to online business. And yes, most online businesses should be much less expensive to start. However, with importing, you are always going to have the risk of inventory/no sales.

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
Even after speaking with people about white-labeling, I still think people don’t seem to REALLY see the big picture. If you are competing against others, you’re going to have going on what I just described above. When you white-label a product, you are insulating yourself from those games. Now you still have to deal with the price issue, but people will pay a higher price for what they perceive to be more popular AND higher quality. If you have a lot of great reviews, then you’ve just given them the perception of both. Nobody selling other people’s products is going to follow-up for product reviews; the most they’ll do is manage their individual feedback scores. As a result, you get the reviews that you get on the products they sell. But if you actively SEEK out reviews, you’ll get them at a much higher pace; maybe .5% of reviews vs. 6% leaving reviews when you’re following. To the buyer, you’re giving the impression that your product is 12x more popular than the competitors.
You have to laugh, I’m reading all these affiliate bonus offers for this course, they tell you how great it is, then tell you that you need their special bonus xyz and abc to be successful because it’s not in the course

Had a few pm about selling my membership to asm thanks but no thanks. Yes the course is not very good and fails to exsplain extra costs ect but the reasen i wont sell is that the forum they have is fantastic way better than the 8 modules
I did write a long message (I deleted it), but I do not have the time or strength to get in a pissing match with you now. I am sure the community respects your view point on things and good luck to them.
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.
And yes, I offer an real online educational program that is perfect for those who are willing to work and don’t want to risk a ton of money like you ABSOLUTELY will have to if your importing products to make real, substantial money online.

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.
Also, for what it’s worth, I know your product and I’ve seen some of your posts, so I’m not surprised your doing well…you seem to type of person that naturally knows how to navigate through the challenges pretty well.
4) It seems like they are going for the money grab, because before I took the course I believe I heard them mention that it would be updated as things change, but what i didn’t realize is that it would be updated through a newsletter that they would be charging on a monthly basis ($97 per month). Now you DON’T have to buy this, but if you want the current information that isn’t in the course, then you will have to. Also, they came out with a Facebook course to teach more people how to market on Facebook. So they are using paid mediums (newsletters and more courses) in order to update the course. I guess i shouldn’t be upset about it, as I don’t have anything against these guys trying to make a buck, but SHEESH!! You just took $3500 from me, and now you are trying to get even more? And all this within 5 months of me buying the course?? At least give me a little of that extra content for free for a full year before you start hitting me up for more money!
To be fair the product creators suggest that you can gain an advantage if you promote the product well via Amazon and You Tube and they’re right – this will enable you to stand out from competitors. However, there’s nothing to stop other people from doing the same thing.
Depends on your brains, experience, dedication and perseverance. If you are even the least prone to give up or don´t have time to dedicate yourself completely, then don´t do it. There will also be real $ needed on top of the $3500. Don´t expect a walk in the park. ASM1 was likely a goldmine for many, or even most, who put their heart in it. I don´t expect ASM3 to be close to the same deal for many.

I’m not sure honestly, but perhaps it has something to do with this being the 8th launch of ASM, the hundreds of successful students and verified testimonials, or the fact that Matt Clark is a known e-commerce expert who is known amazon courses online truly go out of his way to help his students succeed.
I think the Amazing Selling Machine owners are pretty slick marketers and that’s some of the frustration people have expressed here on this review. You might want to read some of our other viewers comments.
