As for people passing, It is what is. No matter the proof I provided or the what your and Ryan talked about the the possibilities from different angles. Some are just looking for a reason that sides with their belief. All you can do is provide the best and non bias information to educate the group. (Congress take note)
Just did a little research and found this: ASM is going for $3,497 and the official launch date is tuesday, march 12th, 2013 and cart closes at midnight March 18th…(Just google and you´ll see this everywhere)..
Some affiliates have even reported being promised up to 50% commission on their ASM sales, or about $2K. With such high profits and profit margins promised to would-be affiliates, it’s easy to understand why ASM has taken off as quickly as it has. One need only perform a quick search on Google to find reams of affiliate marketing websites touting the benefits of this program.
I sell Amazon FBA on a daily basis and have tons of products I sell for 100%+ ROI. They are easy to find, so your basis is big time unfounded. Private Label is a great way to sell FBA without the competition. I know plenty of sellers who have great success with that. As far as I’m concerned with actual experience, FBA is a great way to have a profitable online ecommerce business that actually makes $ if you do it right and be smart about it. Better than any affiliate mess I’ve tried with blogs, websites or whatever. Google has and will continue to do whatever it takes to make SEO as hard as possible. In my opinion, the small time SEO entrepreneur is wasting their time. FBA is a viable business model. The seller of this product might be selling worthless goods and is obviously making his $ selling his product rather than doing full time FBA. But as far as I’m concerned, FBA is a legit business, you do have to work at it, it’s not hard to find products and there are ways to beat out other sellers who sell at a lower price. Your statements are not based on actual and factual knowledge of the FBA business model and you should learn more before making unfounded comments.
4. I have done some affiliate marketing on the side and the biggest obstacle has always been trying to compete with Amazon. It seems for most products they always come up first. So why not use that leverage and ranking power combined with some basic SEO and keyword research skills to sell my own products on Amazon and dominate the search engine listings. Why should I continue earning only 6% as an Amazon affiliate when I can make 25-50%?
In 2015, Kevin Rizer started a brand, selling products on Amazon. It quickly grew from a hobby into a multi-million dollar empire. A year later, Kevin pac man machine amazon recording conversations with successful sellers, and launched a podcast to tell their stories. That podcast was called “Private Label Podcast”. In the time since, the podcast has become a movement with tens of thousands of loyal followers, and is today the authoritative source for information and inspiration on selling on Amazon, e-com …
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.
Firstly, yes you can, but most coaching offered in the make money online world is not worthy of the title “coaching”. I have bought 7 coaching programs over the years, all from respectable IM names. 5 were rubbish.
UPDATE: after thinking about what I have written, I decided to post margin. This is because of panorama indirectly calling me a lair. From now on I hope this puts all the nasty critics to bed. http://screencast.com/t/0uns55Cj as you can see, it clearly states $19.

I haven’t been given access to the course, but as someone who uses Amazon as one of many sales avenues (>$300K in Amazon sales last year), I’m considering buying the course just to prove to myself that it is BS.

I can tell you that the course does train you how to successfully sell on amazon. It also will teach you a technique (no secret=private labeling or private branding) that will allow you to separate yourself from your competitors, and if done correctly allow you to charge more for your product than your competitors do, and thus make more profit.

Sidenote: they did it again with eyelash curlers (which I was going to use as an example before I heard this in their video) and they used the brand Shu Uemera as an example. Again, another globally known brand. WTF? Why do they just talk out of their butts with this stuff?
I was shocked when a simple main image test increased my sales from an average of 11/day to 14/day. That may not sound like much but that results in over $4,000 extra in profit put into my pocket each year. Since sales on Amazon vary from day to day and week to week so much, I would never have known the true winner without doing the proper A/B test through Splitly.
But you are probably missing the point that all formulas are created by a manufacturing company and for the most part pre-approved. The risk is mitigated in this regards. You are more or less the middle-man/woman selling something that has already been sold to millions.
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.
There are people who have gone full speed ahead and invested in the thousands to fulfill the course recommendations, only to find that their product is sitting in Amazon warehouses, with little to no sales. Yes, overpriced
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 🙂
A badge system to help you keep track of all your accomplishments inside ASM. Not only does this build a sense of support and community, but it has proven to help members stay on track and reach their goals as quickly as possible.
