Sample products = $100 (average estimate) (not quite true. 95% of my products are from USA, most of my suppliers sent out a sample for free. And even my other supplier who is outside the USA also sent me a sample for free. That is best case. Worst case, I agree with you. My cost $0
A couple of things you mentioned caught my eye which was and I quote “My books are constantly in the top 10 in their niche, but it just doesn’t translate into big bucks.” This is one of your main problems, you stayed with a low return business module. I am aware of the course last year which was based on many methods (private labeling, wholesale, kindle ect), and M&J highlighted kindle is a great business, however the return is poor compared to private labeling.
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.

Among all the Amazon Seller courses mentioned in this wonderful thread, aside from ASM (too expensive for $3500), which course is dynamite at not only TEACHING how to private label products but ALSO assists sellers in locating and sourcing such products? I am VERY interested in buying such a course.
CleanTAS 301 : Ask Scott Session #91 – Your Business and Marketing Questions What’s the latest sticking point in your Amazon or eCommerce business moving forward? Are you having trouble with product selection? Are there questions about using the Amazon dashboard or backend? Maybe it has to do with list-building or sales funnel 12/30/2016 Free View in iTunes
The ones that make me laugh are the ones that say, you don’t need a website, you don’t need hosting, you don’t need a list etc.. then when you get into the training it teaches you how to create a website and suggests Hostgator for hosting and conveniently here is the link which is an affiliate link lol. Also you see some that say this is the only tool you will ever need and in the pdf they are promoting other products which they claim they use.
The Amazing Selling Machine program is really amazing! People like Brendan Morris have made over $30 million in the last year. You can watch his Story in this Facebook Page: Here’s the Live Video: https://AmazingSellingFacebookSessions.com/
There was something special about the idea of selling physical products that people would actually use and consume. I was tired of the negativity in the “make money online” world, and seeing 30% refunds on products was starting to get exhausting.
(Some of them will respond to this post and say “Yeah but we have ___________ features that make us really unique from the rest!”. That’s a great selling point but it’s not critical to you pulling off amazon fba alternatives label successfully. I don’t care what the features are.)
So if you go into the make money online world with the mentality of a college student (which is – spend 4 years and 100K dollars before you make a steady income), you’re going to be pleasantly surprised with Wealthy Affiliate.
2. You’d know that while some customers buy only on price, are attracted to “pile ’em high and sell ’em cheap”, and have no brand loyalty, others will pay extra for added-value. Otherwise, why are there chains of supermarkets who sell only on price and others who do a thriving trade selling value?
CleanTAS 255 : Amazon Changes the Game Once Again with Brand Registered Brands (Round Table Discussion) Occasionally Scott likes to have round table type discussions with people who he’s come to know through his experience selling private label products on Amazon.

That was certainly the case with Amazing Selling Machine 8, and now I’m happy to give you MY review based on my own experience. I’ve gone through the video training, I’ve gone through the PDF’s and Members area, and I think you’ll get a lot out of my review.
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.
Regarding PRs, I didnt say I use PRweb, I was just confirming what someone else mentioned. I do use PR services but more high quality and high price ones now. With that being said, PR DO work, how do I know? One of my products were featured on a well know popular site in USA and the traffic to my product was massive and I also created an optin for another PR to test (that is another topic of conversion). It does depend on the distribution network one uses. Which is why I dont use PRweb, but it is a starting point. Personally any type of PR service that promotes serps increase I would stay away from. But as I said, starting with ASM tool is a starting point on budget.
If you state that the percentage is only 10% of those taking the course will succeed then why do they (ASM) refuse to give me an answer to that very same question. I am happy things worked out for you, but I have a hard time risking that kind of money not including product costs and fees on such a slim chance. Would you place your children in a school where only 10% graduated?
