Of course, you need to ensure the quality of the product that you’re selling so perhaps some types of products are more suited to this model. For example, there’s not much that can go wrong with a spatula when compared to an electronic item. And I’d steer clear of any health-related product where you run the risk of being sued because you didn’t know what ingredients where in the product you were selling.
My net profit margin is a little over 40% after everything – COGS, inbound shipping, outbound shipping, Amazon fees, etc. My single best day so far earned me about $1,500 in profit and I’m not even CLOSE to the levels of the http://markets.financialcontent.com/dowtheoryletters/news/read/35644596 seller in my category. He’s probably the top seller of whatever his product is, and I’d be considered one of the “imitators” picking up the scraps.
I have been listening to this podcast (eight hours a day while sitting in my cubicle at work) for weeks now. Like many people, my goal is to get out of the cubicle and live a life of freedom. Well, I had heard of this whole FBA “Private Label” business before, but as soon as I started listening to Scott’s show I has HOOKED. Never boring, always insightful, and extremely motivating. Thanks for all you do, Scott.
Depending upon your previous experience selling on Amazon he endorses essentially 3 to 4 products. The one Malik likes best is “Proven Amazon Course” by Jim Cockrum which he considers easily worth $10,000 with all its info. You also get lifetime access to “Selling on Amazon Mentorship Series” as a free bonus. If you are a complete newbie, according to Malik, you will also need Andy Dew’s “Dewable course” currently at $99. I have just bought Jim’s course for $97 with lifetime access and updates. I think that was a savvy decision which just saved me approx. $3900!
Well, they did not cover critical things importing from china, labeling, brand registration etc very well, or not at all, but they found time to make videos and pdf’s on how to get boy scout type merit badges on your forum profile, what they actually did was avoid covering the difficult stuff that would have had them do a lot of work (don’t forget they were both on vacation in France when they launched this!)
I received a private message from this gentleman and am posting his question and answer here. I won’t answer any more questions in the thread because I am taking the thread away from it’s original intent. But if the information I provided for Sajid helps him maybe it will help others also.
What I like about your review here is that you are mostly just saying “open your eyes” and look around. Explore the alternatives before investing too heavily. It reminds me of the old Apple ad about the Lemmings walking blindfolded off a cliff.
I watched your video and your comments above don’t change the fact that (a) many of your points in the video had little merit; (b) you diverted people to another product where you would earn an affiliate commission; and (c) you decided to post a link to your video “review” here, but it obviously wasn’t only about helping your reputation/fans/followers/readers/tribe. In fact, the post was ultimately deleted by moderators, presumably because they found it to be too self promotional.
Hi Kevin. I think the portfolio you’re referring to is their Amazing.com product ($99/month, access to udemy-like courses for learning multiple different streams of income, including Amazon). I am an affiliate of that one only, but to be fair I don’t think their course content has been updated for approx. 1 year.
I emailed an affiliate (that I trust and that was raving about ASM) if someone like me would benefit from the course. He said, very quickly, that it’s not necessary for people that have “seen the light”. He went onto say that the benefit is helping shape people’s ability to evaluate the opportunity to sell something and, later on, white label a product. He said that value in the course is the support to help you get to that point and not necessarily the tools available.
The price is ridiculous and unfortunately the reason that it’s so high is because they are paying huge affiliate commissions. But the reality is that the Amazing Selling Machine is selling overpriced information.
