Thanks greatly for your insightful explanation to develop business acumen and own a successful Amazon FBA or ecommerce business. The timeline you suggest to income is clarified with your advice to pursue all needed operations methods to have effective in sync systems.
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.
Thanks Bayking. You just confirmed my suspicions. Not saying the course is bad because haven’t bought it, but it’s sad to notice something which seems to be good goes beyond that by some hype software. That always remains some bad taste and start to think is there more hype to come you blindly believe in?
A week later the same story, but next close friend/buddy of his have super special offer which expire 2h later so hurry up…bla,bla,bla… Of course that JV promoter have been using ONLY his buddy`s system for his online business and never looked at other options…and then a week later, http://marketerslog.com/news/amazing-selling-machine-course-evergreen-launch-2018-start-an-ecommerce-business/0045744/ 2 days later the story comes all over again with next good buddy of his…and so on. It`s like Mafia of buddies trying to make quick bucks promoting something they have never tried.
2. “Can you write copy?”; “can you create a product listing?” “Can you find a supplier?” etc These questions apply to any business – ASM is not a magic silver bullet, or a shiny object. There are no quick fix solutions.
If you don’t have a list, go out and target your ideal customers with FB ads, Instagram and other influencers. Use contests. Give away a coupon code for the opt-in. Then on the thank you page or in an email send them the code and direct them over to Amazon. DO NOT drive traffic directly to your product. Always intercept with the opt-in. If they don’t buy, that hurts your conversions on Amazon. Low conversions result in low rankings.
My line of thinking used to be just like yours – I thought “FBA isn’t that hard…I figured it out myself, so why should I pay all this money when I already know 95% of this stuff.” Well, (for me) there was tremendous value in that other 5% that I didn’t know. Other people may have different experiences, but I consider myself to be a bright guy and I don’t know how long it would have taken me to get to $50k+ per month without ASM.

Joe, you should know that whatever business you put up, online or offline, it’s going to take work to make it successful. Most people don’t care about importing, what we’re really talking about is making money. Plain and simple.
I’ve heard of the Amazing Selling Machine, but like you said, the cost of the product is a little off putting. Then again, you’re paying to learn how to build a successful business on Amazon so it makes sense.
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.
Seriously…hahaha. It’s kinda like that one dude in this forum said he made a net profit of 500 million last year. It’s so ridiculous that you have to wonder about the level of delusion that is going on.

Here’s the other cool thing – clients have instant access to all the videos & pdf’s. I had two people join over the weekend. One has gone through all the material and now is identifying manufactures and the other had a product and got his product listing up with his inventory en route to FBA.
My numbers are improving each week, and I’m on either page 1 or 2 for most of my top keywords, and climbing.(I opened at page 14 for my top keywords) At this point, most of the brands ranked above me are nationally known brands.
I did talk to a well known IMer who is friends with product creators of this and no one has seen this product except for their beta testers. He said they have had beta testers achieve very big numbers(I wont give the exact numbers) but it seems they have developed an approach to be successful with amazon FBA rather than many stories you read about people trying FBA without much profit . This product comes with software too I guess.
It is healthy to be skeptical going into any new program. But it appears that you are trying to tear these people down. Their online reputations and students speak volumes for themselves and rise above any personel critisizim you may have. Do your research and play nice.
1. 30 day refund policy beginning from the first day of training which begins March 21. After asking Jason, the co-creator of the training a question about how long it takes to start selling product, his answer was that if I apply the techniques taught, within 4 weeks I should be selling product daily. If this happens, I should be able to get a realistic picture of what type of monthly net profits to expect from each product and determine if it warrants continuing and the investment of the training. If not, then I am within the 30 days and can get a refund. It would seem that after only 4 weeks, I should have a worst case scenario of what my monthly sales will be, as I should be able to vastly improve my results through more personal experience, adding more products and the advanced trainings during the final 4 weeks.

Engaging Bullet Points. You get 5-10 depending on the category. Explain with the features and benefits. Start with the benefits. If it’s a garlic press that doesn’t cramp the hand, start with “It doesn’t cramp your hand.”
3- People care about that. Do you care what brand spatula you use? No. Maybe, maaayyyyybe when I go to the store i’ll pick OXO over something else, but really, who cares. Your supplements– people care.
Also, the “new super secret free software” that they “gave away” was the biggest joke I have ever seen. The software claimed to give you estimated sales for top sellers in different categories. Some number were off by a factor of ten. I know because I am the only seller for one of those products.
I am currently actively looking for the ways to start my online business, I’m very new in all this. I’ve watched the ASM video on how to create an FBA Amazon business, but wouldn’t spend thousands of dollars for a program though.
The reason that I brought that up is because it’s an example of the benefits of starting to learn how to do something on your own. I think it is abundantly clear that PLing a product is the best way to sell on Amazon, there is no dispute there. And you know what you have to do! 1) Find product 2) Sell product 3) Get reviews
I should also note, the very beginning of my PL and AMZ journey started after a conversation with a friend last Easter.,.. so 6 months later I’m up and running! I made some mistakes along the way, but overall I am making money (not a ton, but good for side cash.. hope to be ramping up my business soon )
I think “investment” in courses should be tethered to the amount of money you’re making. So if you’re a newbie, you use the free training until you’ve made $100/month profit. If you’re intermediate, you buy a $100 course. And if you’re advanced, you consider the more expensive training.
The product I decided to start with has many sellers on Amazon claiming to be organic but none are certified organic. I decided to get my product certified organic in order to be the only seller on Amazon with that certification. I believe it will give me an edge over all of them and will certainly give me a great unique selling point.
I know you’ve got a good size email list, but saying that you “gave up” $17,000 by not promoting ASM is very misleading because it’s just hypothetical. It could have been more, and it could have been a lot less…I know a guy who thought he was going to make a lot of money just by emailing his list and he didn’t make one sale.
I like Dan thies and Leslie Rohde, but that’s a total joke right there. Amazon employs sales reps to sign-up people on FBA and their other services. If you have a website, you’ve probably been contacted by them in the past.
Sorry if I come across rude, I just wanted to sate the facts, most of your reply is incorrect. Most people dont know how to blacklink and use services correctly, they are the ones shouting out “it dont work”.
