You need to have money to get started. Amazon pays out twice a month. It takes 3-4 days to hit your bank account. If you wait for your deposit to re-order/stock up, it’s around 2-3 weeks to get things over to fulfillment and into your inventory. Therefore, you need to be able to purchase at least 30 days of inventory to really make it through otherwise you’re dropping momentum with stock outs. I don’t feel they are entirely clear with that. Yes you get paid like clockwork, however, if your inventory is getting low, you need to be able to re-order without waiting for a disbursement because Amazon’s inbound fulfillment (getting your items into their inventory system) is just not the fastest thing.
The reason I ask, you are affectively paying for the forum and group consistently giving you new ideas and help. I know ASMers gets tools, which I know most people will question it. But the real value is networking with like minded people.

Keyword is the most objective podcast on this list. The show doesn’t promote any sort of agenda other than understanding how Amazon works and how sellers can grow their businesses. This podcast is authoritative and sounds more like an NPR story than a podcast. The attention to asm sales to the production is refreshing and it shows Kate’s passion toward the project. Plus, this is the only podcast on this list that has had a guest who currently works at Amazon.

If you sign up and quit, I will show up at your house and pee on your lawn. I’ll even eat asparagus before so that your whole yard smells like asparagus pee. And then your dog will eat it and fart and stink up your whole house like asparagus pee. Think I’m joking? Try me.
So here’s my experience my journey so far, I’ll try to keep this brief. I took a little longer to get started than was necessary. Even after buying the course and watching the videos I only started to really get going in January. I also decided to bring in a friend of mine who I outsourced a lot of the work to due to my focus being elsewhere. However, after a few dropped product selections and disregarded supplier conversations we managed to order 200 units of a product from China to the Amazon warehouses in the United States. With a few promotions and advertisements (all taught on the course) we ended up selling out far quicker than anticipated and ran out of stock before we could get the next batch going. We have just started selling our next batch of a 1000 units. We are estimated to make around $4000-5000 dollars in gross sales this month and are aiming to hit, in the near future, a target of $10000 a month with this one product. Do I believe their business model works? Of course, I have seen the results and I am now looking into funding options to ramp up our product selection. The best part of this business is that it is completely scalable, hence, why people are able to make so much money. You simply increase the amount of products you sell.
In this video you’ll see the exact steps we’ve used to sell more product and build our email list using FB live video. This will also allow you to build assets in your brand and give you more leverage down the road.
I’m not going to google and cite the many, MANY, lawsuits that happen in the fashion industry because it is an intellectual property minefield and there are so many issues involved that it is difficult to give someone a blanket answer. Fashion also falls under copyright law (in many instances) and in some instances an actual design can receive trademark protection (such as Burberry’s plaid).
Ex. instead of branding Momma J’s Kitchen spoons and spending money on whitelabeling and ordering bulk, I order a small order of the general brand and sell and ship myself to see if it will indeed SELL, then I brand.
CleanTAS 452: (LIVE HOT SEAT) How to Grow and Scale a Brand to 7 Figures in a Crazy NICHE What does it take for leaders like you to build a robust brand in a very niche market? Where do you start? What tools and tactics do you use to attract traffic and build a following? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, 12/18/2017 Free View in iTunes
3. We carry some private label products in our locations now and the profit margin is much higher on those. With this strategy, we are creating our own brand and don’t have to compete with other sellers carrying the same exact brand of product. Of course everything hinges on being able to get the products ranked in Amazon but after 4 weeks of training, I will see if it really does work.
These three things together determine how valuable your business asset becomes, and how quickly you get there. If you are lacking in one area, you can compensate through one of the other areas. How is that possible? If for example, you are starting with less money, you can compensate and still achieve the same results by working more hours, or executing better/more efficiently. If you don’t have the extra time, you could compensate by spending more money (on inventory, outsourcing, etc.), or be executing better/more efficiently.
I have decided that buying low and selling high on amazon is the best way to go (for me at least). There are descent services that help you find products. I use FBAMyLife dot com, but FBAfinds is also good. These services find products for you to buy and resell (for a price of course). But they are helpful.
If someone is barely making rent or barely able to buy groceries, do not go with the Amazing Selling Machine. You’re looking at 5K on this overpriced program, then another, at the minimum, 5K in importation and marketing fees. And you could easily spend up to $20,000 dollars and still not have a super profitable importation business.
Earning $4k a month is a fair starting point for a complete beginner (as a comparison many new ASMers would be earning that within about 4 weeks or so of having their product in amazon, 8 weeks later it would be more than that).
Yes, we get it. You have a different, cheaper course. Do you think Honda can get Porsche clients by telling them this – hey our car is more reliable and less expensive? While other courses may be good, they don’t have the support around it that this product has. It’s impressive how much value is being generated in order to gain this type of traction. If they weren’t helping others become successful, they would in turn not become successful.
I emailed an affiliate (that I trust and that was raving about ASM) if someone like me would benefit from the course. He said, very quickly, that it’s not necessary for people that have “seen the light”. He went onto say that the benefit is helping shape people’s ability to evaluate the opportunity to sell something and, later on, white label a product. He said that value in the course is the support to help you get to that point and not necessarily the tools available.

This bonus and their guarantee truly ARE worth the peace of mind you get for this epic training by Matt and Jason. I want you to be succesfull in this, so take the time and learn the system, buy your products, build your business, and understand the hype behind ASM IS warranted. 🙂
My point– it is not $3,000 of value. It is $3,000 because their business model for selling it allows them to create large affiliate payouts, bonuses and incentives, to ensure the course is a success.
Thanks for your response, thats pretty much what I have been attempting, but no luck so far, the problem is finding the product that you can buy as a generic, and sell with or without your own branding. It seems like many many sellers are doing the same thing, at least sellin generic versions.
If you can afford ASM, the course + the right bonuses can provide excellent value. Alternatively, you could forego a bonus offer and still obtain high quality training by purchasing another course at a lower cost.
A few years ago, Perry Belcher said to me, “Ryan, if I were you, I’d focus on selling stuff – real stuff that people use.” Although it took me a few years, I finally had to admit that he was right. I then took the plunge and dove into Amazing Selling Machine.
ASM seems like it teaches the same things as far as titles, description, keywords, getting reviews, using youtube all to get your item ranked higher. But they do go on and say how SEO, etc. will do nothing for you. I do not know if this is true?
No one but my team can make the claims that we can. We’ve been teaching serious entrepreneurs how to succeed selling physical products online for well over a decade with an impeccable reputation – and there’s no “upsell” – buy our course once for a few hundred bucks and you are “in for life”.
To be fair, even my trusted partners (who offer private label systems/training) repeat the same benefits – with some exceptions – every time the offer/do a re-launch. It’s nothing new in the world of marketing.
Bioinformatics tools are an increasingly important part of microbiology, and many of the most popular tools run on the command line.

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.
Anyway, from there, things started to grow, because as we made sales, we started getting reviews. As we started getting reviews, we made more sales. As we made more sales, we climbed up the Amazon rankings… and the snowball started to to grow and grow and grow…
I bought the Proven Amazon system and asked for a refund due to its info being to bland. Just tells you ideas doesn’t guide you though doing it, Im not new to amazon but I am new to trying to brand products.
Of course, I can not tell you many details about these tactics, but you will get what you need to achieve the success you have always dreamed of. All you need to do is to follow the system especially if you are a newbiees.
