Update (Mar 2016): Just filed my income tax and it’s the highest I have ever paid – thanks to the income I now make as an entrepreneur that all started with PAC! I also paid down my mortgage by $60,000 and paid for a brand new vehicle in cash (if you know anything about vehicle prices in Singapore, then you know that’s a substantial amount).
For the person that best amazon selling course if I was private labeling, yes that is what I am doing and what the course teaches. If you sell someone else’s product, you will be at the mercy of a price war and your profit margins will be extremely limited, so I only recommend going the private labeling route because you are the only seller and can dictate your price and profit margins without someone undercutting you.

I am in many nitches and only followed partially what Matt and Jason preached in the ASM Course. I quit my day job and sell on Amazon full time. I started with Retail Arbitrage and wholesale to get into the game SUPER FAST. Now I am slowing selling off most of this stuff and replacing it with Private Label and New Wholesale Products as this is alot less work in the long run, and I control my products/listings. My most successful and profitable products are Private Label and some Wholesale. There is SOO much information in the course that I haven’t even done half of it, or used their tools yet. I’m still working up to that while still managing my inventory.
If the $4k was not an issue for me at this point, I would have joined. With all the promotional videos and pdf’s they did, it gave out alot of information and outlined the approach to their success. I decided to test the waters without the course and use the information already freely available in this forum and their promotional videos. Giving myself a deadline of choosing a product and finding a supplier by end of the month. Whether I have success or not using their Private Labeling method on my own, I will still join their next ASM course (if available); which hopefully by then, the $4k would not be an issue for me. Nothing ventured, nothing gained…
The people talking about ASM remind me, very much, of the Stompernet community. I joined in 2006 when the price was $797/month and the place was a vibrant community. Stomperenet was focused on e-commerce and, at that time, the information was EXTREMELY limited about how you start/grow a store. So in a situation like that, you can really learn a lot to get you off and running.
Having said that, no where in the course do they recommend buying or writing fake reviews. They instead teach a technique whereby you will get initial traffic and sales to the product, and then using techniques they teach, encourage the people who bought to review the purchase for you.
