While nothing is perfect, to say the FB community is pure gold is imo an understatement. And while there are clearly people who do not succeed, there are so many success stories (to varying degrees) that keep popping up in the FB group (from people I know are real since I watched them when they still had basic questions and difficulties) that it is clear that as long as you don’t quit, you know that sooner or later you’ll get there as well.
However, you will *not* succeed just by following the material in the course. The course does not teach you advanced eCommerce skills required to be successful. If you do not have *advanced* knowledge and experience with email and social media campaigns, you too will be one of the 90%.
Having said all that, the opportunities are ripe. In most good categories, there aren’t that many products with 10+ reviews. You could be the “brand” name product with just a little marketing push. Reviews=Sales on Amazon.
What I find is that all to often certain opportunities can become misrepresented on threads by (well meaning) people posting their personal opinions and beliefs about a new opportunity rather then posting what they actually know from their experience.
In the what-seemed-like-forever ramp up leading to the big reveal of its outrageous price, I followed the Facebook comments on it. I’ve come to the conclusion that most people really are stupid, just based on the questions people asked. One thing I must give the guys selling it credit for is how patient and polite they were with most of them.
Module 1: You will learn about how to select your products to make sure that you guarantee success with your very first product. Product selection is the most arduous task. With the knowledge provided by ASM, the process is much more effective but it still involves a lot of work. However, if you follow the system closely, the products you select will be profitable.

Based on all the reviews and videos people start earning $1000 – $3000 within first 3-6 months. So if you really follow the system then ROI is one of the fastest. I personally can’t validate this claim but I will soon be a live proof of this and will post the results.
And the customer complaint that I put up in this review within 1 hour of research on the ASM, shows her frustration with the Amazing Selling Machine and that she was taken advantage of by ASM’s marketing tactics.
It seems to me that there is plenty of information on Amazon on FBA and on YouTube that an entrepreneur can use to start a successful selling campaign on the Amazon website. Now there are very expensive (e.g. ASM) and very cheap (e.g. PAC) courses that tell you more or less the samething on what you need to to do but at the end of the day it is all to do with you, in terms of affordability, your appitude to apply available information, the amount of hand-holding you need, your accountability to someone more successful doing it and just your ability to becoming focused and getting on with it. My main concern is the vast majority of people who embark on these courses will fail no matter how expensive their course was, or how much information and help they were given. Generally it is all to do with attitudes and your ability to face and overcome obstacles you will inevitably run into along the road. Success has a price that all must pay. The elusive free lunch of doing nothing and expecting a good return doesn’t exist per se!
Yeah, it’s a steep price for what already exists online, I’m going to be reviewing a couple other products that have much cheaper memberships and are giving out great information. I’ll send you an email when I get the review posted.
You’re right about that, Jason. It doesn’t matter what the ASM owners profit margin IS – or WAS 6 months ago. For the owners of ASM and their (greedy) affiliates, the profit margins are 1000%+ by selling this system to others – that is where the REAL MONEY is.
2. As for shipping. Courier is mostly used for samples, both for time reason and difficulty you will get yourself into to ship anything less then 1 cubic meter by sea, let alone all the custom clearence documents you need to cover. It’s simply not worthwhile to ship sample by sea, or any smaller quantity products(considerring AMS covers mostly smaller products, 1 cubic meter could be thousands).
This allowed me to have success, but I totally that agree you should check out anything like this first and realize the expectations before you sign up. Hopefully this review will help those out there make a good decision.

The easiest way to start, though, is regular purchasing just to get a feel for what is involved. I don’t think it makes sense for udemy scam who has never done it to invest in private label products off the bat. IMO, you need a little experience working with the system and dealing with the kinks, possibly getting UPC exemptions or special category approval and that can take time.
