I think people get that. Private label is not groundbreaking (it may be “new” to IMers, but it is not new) nor were they the first to teach private label on Amazon. What they probably were the first to do is combine FBA + Private Label + IM techniques that could get a normal ecommerce website penalized but are relatively “safe” for Amazon.
As I stated earlier, I am a member currently doing about 50K in revenue a month using the tactics taught in ASM, completely replaced the job I quit last march doing cable tv installations. Its totally doable for almost anyone, the only thing you need is a little capital to get the ball rolling of course, thats the nature of selling your own products on amazon (drop-shipping sucks!)

Scott’s podcast has been a breath of fresh air for me as I prepare to launch my first product. I like his straight forward approach to building brands and launching products. He follows basic business sense but applies his world of knowledge around internet marketing to build your brand and and launch your product. His guidance has already steered me clear of a product that would have been too seasonal, and towards something that I have more experience with. Highly recommend!

I know I probably sound like a hypocrite since I’d earn a commission on alternative courses as well, but they are significantly less than what I could earn promoting ASM. With the private label market becoming more saturated and the increase in price, I just can’t in good conscious promote it without at least acknowledging that there are decent alternatives now.
I was hooked on retail arbitrage. I would spend all my free time sourcing packaging and shipping products to Amazon. I was thrilled to see hundreds of dollars in sales rolling in everyday and I wanted to scale up to replace my income but this became more than a one woman show and I needed to automate and simplify this process.
How would you like to get what would be equal to about $782/yr in fees for free? And more importantly, set it up before you get customers so that way you never lose all the money you can make with an Amazon customer after they make their first purchase!
If you have a list that you can market that product to and send them directly to Amazon, this makes the job a whole heck of a lot easier. If you don’t, then you probably need to low-ball your price or figure out a way to drive traffic to the listings. Once you start to get some sales/reviews going, you can slowly raise your price.

If you reread her statement, you can feel that she felt taken advantage of by not knowing all the costs that would be involved with setting up an importation business on top of the 5K you spend on the ASM. She called ASM a scam, but I think that was just frustration from being blown over by their marketing tactics.
