CleanTAS 273 : Why Change on Amazon is a Good Thing and Helps Businesses GROW with Chris Guthrie The recent changes to the Amazon review policies have lots of people panicking about whether there’s a future selling products on Amazon. Since everyone is still rebounding and trying to figure out what the new rules mean for sellers Scott thought he 10/26/2016 Free View in iTunes
ASM used to suggest selecting products with incredibly high sales volumes and you could relatively easily get good Amazon rankings and crazy sales volumes for these products. These type of products now are too competitive to sell.
My overall view, is the course worth getting? Yes! I believe that anyone can make some money from this and if you want to start up your own business and follow an entrepreneurial route then this is a great way to start. Who has to say you only sell your product to Amazon? To see the best results it will require some ingenuity. For example being creative in how you sell your product to gain customers and increase sales. Do I believe this course could be life changing? Yes!
Back in 2006 I was running (and still am) an ecommerce store that was doing very well. The argument used to be (in the days of adsense) “Well, I don’t want to deal with the hassle of physical products”. So instead of making .20/visitor like I was ($20 profit for every 100 visitors), they were making about .01/visitor (5% CTR @ 25 cents per click). So they essentially needed 20x more traffic to make the same amount of money that I was making. Now what is more difficult?
I checked out your review on the Amazing Selling Machine. I really appreciate your reviews. They are in-depth and well-rounded. I may get Skip’s books as well. I think each program provides a unique perspective. I do agree that some programs are excessively expensive though.
2. Right after the cancellation period is over, that is Module 6, the team makes no effort. The quality of modules afterward dropped significantly. It is like telling the members, ” We don’t care now because you cannot cancel it any more. ”
They also seem to have software tools that are rolled in, which give the impression that they are spammy backlinking tools that they are throwing at Amazon because it’s really hard to have a negative SEO effect on Amazon.
When considering complaint information, please take into account the company’s size and volume of transactions, and understand that the nature of complaints and a firm’s responses to them are often more important than the number of complaints.
But if you do find a great product where you can brand it and then get it ranked high, of course you can make that kind of money. Just good luck finding this product. If it wasn’t about that, then they would freely tell you which products they use.
ASM is NOT for the lazy or those who want everything “done for them”, but the training and the support from the Amazing Mentors is TRULY second to none. You’re going to spend quite a bit of time digesting the content, and putting what you learn into action – but the results are worth the effort!
It just depends on how your site grows. Think of Facebook, this was a niche idea of connecting people that caught on and turned into a mega giant website that grosses over 18 billion dollars/mo. It took 3 years to build it before it went public, but we all know the results of sites like Facebook.
I didn’t go into detail but I’m actually very well versed in IP law for a business owner without a law degree. I’m not over thinking anything. I’m just providing a more detailed answer to the question.
Can’t say that I am a customer of ASM, but most of what they are teaching is stuff that you should inherently know if you’ve studied marketing at all. The other piece is the technical know-how in dealing with Amazon. I picked most of that up by doing it, reading their FBA forums, and talking with my sales rep.

That being said, if you haven’t expanded internationally, whats asm Superheroes is definitely where I’d start to learn about this. However, ASM is supposed to be including a new “International” module with the current launch, so it’s probably worth waiting to see how good their content is since you already own it.

I did try to learn the info in it but it was so bland that not knowing about how to brand products or anything it did not make sense to me at all.I learned more about branding and how to brand a product watching Matt & Jason’s google hangout yesterday for 2 hours then I did watching all the videos in The Proven Amazon System.

I will say though that Rusty Moore above recommending this Amazing Selling Machine product was interesting as he doesn’t recommend much (if anything) and even told his list(which is one of the few I am on) that he isn’t going to email his list anymore as he doesn’t care for recommending IM products to people and would rather focus on his own business. He very easily could just keep recommending the latest and greatest products but doesn’t want to.
A 20% net profit margin sounds low to me…mine is about 40%. I’d be willing to bet if Daniel is making $300k profit per month, he has a good profit margin as well. I know some people with 50%+ margins on Amazon.
