ASMers say my millionaire mentor bbb like “Oh, Amazon is growing faster than we are so no problems with competition.” But let’s be honest, ASM is filled with 98% of the people that have had no success at all (just like any IM course). Another successful 1% probably aren’t active in the forums. And then the final successful 1% will probably give you good general advice, but they aren’t spilling what really has worked well for them. Why would they?
I agree with you somewhat here. There will always be people who do well and those who don’t. Just like any business, some people will fail. Anyone who is thinking about buying ASM because they think it’s the once in a lifetime opportunity to buy a winning lotto ticket shouldn’t buy this. It’s a business. It takes work and success isn’t guaranteed.
Please don’t quote me out of context. Right below the portion of the post you quoted, I pointed out that you didn’t take product costs into account, so I clearly wasn’t only talking about FBA fees. Also, your original comment was:
An affiliate for ASM makes over 2K/transaction when the sell one ASM membership. So Skip could have cleaned up really well with ASM’s affiliate program. The gave him a free membership to entice him to check it out.
My favorite thing about ASM was that the lessons are broken into really easy to swallow steps. The downside to this is that you’ll be chomping at the bit each week for the lessons and the next steps to get posted.
Hey Scott, I’m a new listener and new to the game and really look forward to this new adventure. Knowledge is power ( or just a little cheaper to minimize my risk/lesson learning). Thank you very much for your podcast, website, and community. Every episode is extremely knowledable and action packed with so may goodies, I often have to listen with pad and pen furiously writing. I love your positive enthusiasm, your coaching, help, and gudiance on this journey. Massive action is taken, so once I’ve listened all the way through, played the game, and have some scraps and bruises I’ve leave another review so we have a before and after, newbie / novice review. Keep up the awesome work! and thank you!!!

As for the situation #2, if you see that the market doesn’t want to pay for your product, you just saved yourself a lot of time, a lot of money, and a lot of effort that you’d have put into launching your product on Amazon.

I can come up with a million ideas for things to sell on FBA that would work, but I personally don’t have the time or energy to do them all. But it all starts with a good product. I get samples from overseas that most people would live with, but I always go back and have them improve on some aspect that would make it even better. That makes all teh difference.
Big brands are always trying to compete with Amazon on price – if you’re a savvy shopper, you can see where the big brands are beating Amazon, and take advantage of that by selling to people who aren’t doing their homework. Get it?
There’s no way for me to predict your success, but I can say this: being in a mastermind is the BEST way to ensure that you follow through, that you see success, and that you build a business that gives you the freedom to live life on your own terms.
First, I apologize to those that posted questions asking me for answers. I don’t really check this thread frequently and didn’t subscribe to it because I already get way too many emails and don’t want to get distracted.
Note: This bonus will be made available to you when Module 4 is released and will be delivered via our ASM Masters members area, which you will receive access to via email within 72 hours of your purchase.
2) Tips from other people in the community. When I first heard M&J say that they learned a lot from members of the predecessor course (Amazing Money Machine), I thought that was just marketing BS. This has honestly been invaluable though.
