You better have quality products and commit to do more than get bogus sales and reviews folks. It is possible. I had one dud and now one success that is growing very well. Biggest advice I can give, is that it is ALL about brand building. My noble competition is priced well below me, but I have the brand that sells at premium and I do not have to worry about the cost cutters (or the ‘viral’ sellers

Now as an affiliate for ASM, I’m still proud to say that I made money knowing that I’m going to be helping real people move forward in their lives. The doors will be closed in less than two hours, so this isn’t affiliate salesmanship – I’ve personally experienced how it changed my life within a few months, and it’s not due to some loophole or blackhat strategy that will stop working with an algorithm update. It’s about learning how to effectively fulfill real demand for an existing product.
Legal fees?? Wow… Granted, I paid less than $200 to incorporate my business which is set for 12 months until renewal. With that said, one is not required to incorporate a business because one could be a sole proprietor, so once one has made their money reinvest it back.
“It works. It’s a great business model and Matt and Jason, Mike and Rich are great teachers and the group is just loads of fun and if you take action you can build a million dollar business in a relatively short period of time.”
Now we are in agreement on that, but here is where it gets sticky: is the seller well versed enough in the industry to be well aware of ALL of a particular company’s designs to know when they are or are not potentially infringing upon a design?
I Believe the problem is the people that develop the software and the courses do not explain things well enough and miss out vital pieces of information. Then when you contact their support, either their support is not qualified enough or they just gloss over everything instead of reading the question and giving you the missing piece that is on your mind. Or worse they just don’t reply.
I can’t say I’m not a little nervous dropping such a big chunk on a training program. I am used to buying $10 and $20 WSO’s. But I also know that with most programs, people aren’t successful because they didn’t fully apply themselves or didn’t stick with it long enough, if the training program wasn’t junk. If they said it would take 60 days or longer to start selling product daily, I would never have purchased it knowing I would be outside of the refund period before I knew if it was successful. And as I mentioned earlier, if it works which it certainly makes sense to me that it will, $3500 is a drop in the bucket.
About a week ago I joined a webinarjam about Amazon, the guy tried to charge $500’s for his services to teach his way of making sure his students would be successful on Amazon. I didn’t, had some of the suspicions you’re stating above. I looked around though, a few success stories like & direct people to ASM, so I looked. I’m glad I found your site here.
Great Book Scott. This book got me into selling my products on Amazon. This book sent me down the rabbit hole. Let’s hope I can apply what I learned here sufficiently. This is just the beginning though and the book deals very briefly on the whole process one needs to go through to get a product onto Amazon. It’s only about 100 pages but it’s powerful and gripping, well worth the read.
I find it very enjoyable when people (or certain person) lays into either FBA or ASM methods. All I can say is, yes ask for a refund, your not needed. While most of us who are making over $100k a month all the way to the bank, I am not hear to brang. Just find it laughable someone wants to call it a scam. Maybe we should call you a scam for not putting in the effort and not sticking with something more than a month, sigh- What a joker.. For really, go find a push button program. If it didnt work for you, fine. That is understandable, but throwing the word/phrase (scam/its a scam) JOKER!
What impressed me the most about the program is how detailed and step-by-step everything is. Everything was SO EASY to go through and take action on, that I believe that ANYONE can succeed with this program.

And it was all over a technicality not a violation (not submitting a data feed for product import because I had decided to just enter the products manually as over 90% of them were existing ASINs). Amazon’s support is horrible. They do have phone support, mostly incompetent. I still sell on Amazon but it is not, and has never been, my only online sales channel.
Regarding if a customer sees your product and a well-known brand. The online market place has changed so much now. Our goal ultimately is to target impulsive buyers when starting to build momentum and gaining reviews, there are millions on Amazon every min of the day. So as long as we have awesome images, very good optimzied listing, and min 3 reviews sales will come.
Plus I think that those that want to get into the importing/drop shipping business using Amazon’s Fulfillment Center can learn how to do it much more economical using Skip McGrath’s Amazon and eBay tutorials.
To be honest, there’s really no harm in doing a test run. Many IMers today are not making any money that’s why it’s hard for them to launch a test on Amazon for a few hundred bucks. There’s really no way to know if this product works or not. If it does work, then fine, just another avenue to earn more online. If it does not work, then it’s just a few hundred bucks. Nothing to cry about. Like I said if you’re truly making money online this should not be an issue. Don’t knock off the product if you’ve not tried it out.

I’m sure liability insurance is extremely expensive when you’re talking about selling supplements to the masses. So what if you don’t manufacture it? Haven’t http://www.wistv.com/story/37326182/news ever heard of a shotgun lawsuit that names everyone and their brother?
My thoughts: maybe most of the members are accustomed to buying lesser value products in the forum here. Hence, when a better or high value ticket product come along, the tendency to judge or degrade the products become second nature.

R.C. was a small e-commerce seller when she started out. However, she’s always had a knack for sales. She mentions in her first episode that at a young age she orchestrated a candy business in her school. She started online selling in 2014 and, like a lot of sellers, has learned a lot through trial and error. What she once lacked in experience she makes up for ingenuity and spirit.
It really depends on what you sell. Having said that, a lot of you are assuming you have ZERO liability in whatever you do. Just because you aren’t aware of the liability of what you’re doing doesn’t mean you don’t have liability. Product liability is a whole different beast, but there are product categories where liability is not that much of an issue, and there is insurance.
That’s very true. Of the 1500+ members, I don’t know how many of them are making any money… I’m just sharing my experience to show what’s possible, which is not necessarily what the average person can expect. For what it’s worth, though, daily profit is now much higher than what I mentioned in my July 5th post.
