As far as I know Amazon seller accounts are in general not transferable, while in theory you could sell your brand and any external ecommerce websites etc I think selling the Amazon account and everything associated with it, product listing, history, reviews etc, which would be 90% of the business value, is not allowed… yes I know, a bummer
You can, in seconds, export every single review that a product has into a file that you can easily sort and find out http://markets.financialcontent.com/mng-ba.santacruzsentinel/news/read/35644596 useful information. Like what? Well, keywords of course! And you know how one good keyword is easily worth thousands per month per product to you!
What do you do when a negative review starts gaining traction and people keep upvoting it on your product listing? Is there any way to combat this difficult situation or do you just have to suffer through it?
I first heard about ASM during the October launch. Given the price, I had to decide between buying the course or being able to launch a product. I have a decent amount of online marketing experience, but had never private labeled before. I decided to see how far I could get on my own. I used all of the free ASM information that I could find, and my product went live in January.
The funniest thing was is that Jordan thinks this is a big time waste for me. If Jordan wants me to indulge and continue to point out the folly in his ways, it’s no big deal. It only takes me a couple minutes and it usually results in a comment that makes him and his sites look ridiculous.
No one but my team can make the claims that we can. We’ve been teaching serious entrepreneurs how to succeed selling physical products online for well over a decade with an impeccable reputation – and there’s no “upsell” – buy our course once for a few hundred bucks and you are “in for life”.
The training IS recorded for those that can’t make it live, but I recommend trying your BEST to attend them live, personally I feel that’s great for keeping yourself accountable, and that makes it harder to fall behind.
When all this put together – to launch this business successfully you will need around $4,000 or more. So if you add the price of ASM program and initial capital needed you are looking at at least $8,000. It is a lot. The good thing that it’s legitimate business that will work, but it really requires an initial investment.
Also, with all due respect Josh, it’s not really easy to accept your review as honest when you’re pitching your own training course. I’ve got nothing against that, by the way – if people are willing to pay, then by all means offer the training, but please don’t pretend that you don’t have an agenda with that “honest review”.
I have a slightly different take on the topic of “getting ranked” on amazon. While I value the skill set you are willing to teach, I’m hearing from numerous sources that Amazon (much like google) is doing everything it can to avoid the manipulation of search results by sellers…and they are getting aggressive about it.

Buying bulk from a wholesaler and sending it to FBA without your branded label is not the same thing. Although many people do that, but heres the problem. You are under the mercy of sale price demand. If you are just starting out and you contact Sony (as an example) to buy 50 head sets for $10 each to sell them for $17 each, you believe you could make $5 per product, including fees ect. However, a supplier with a larger budget could buy 1000 units at $4 each, now the price sell power is in his hands of the new supplier, without a doubt this supplier will list the price at a lower price. Forget that shark infested water!! :-O
One of Scott’s students found a home run this way on accident. A product that sells 75 units a day. Dig deep in the sub categories. Think about your passions and hobbies. Think about your problems or the problems of your friends and family. Ideas are all around you.
Spent 3 weeks up in Cotacochi (north of Quito and worth the day trip – about 2.5 hours in car for 60 USD’s) checking out leather products to import. The prices are awesome for coats, bags, and saddles – But working with the companies there was not efficient for drop shipping purposes. Good products though – tons of artisan goods at great deals. You can also hike the volcanoes around there as well, elevations starting at about 10,000 feet though.
Amazing Selling Machine 8 is created by two people – Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback. This program actually launched in 2012 as a beta and then launched the full version on April of 2013. The hundreds of successful students and verified testimonials, or the fact that Matt Clark is a known e-commerce expert who is known to go out of his way to help his students truly succeed. NOW, Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback are re-launching ASM, It is called Amazing Selling Machine 8. Amazing Selling Machine 8 is a complete package to selling on Amazon which includes 8 weeks of web classes, 9 proprietary software and a private community on Facebook.
I think you’d be surprised how much you don’t know. I’d pay $4k in a heartbeat for the stuff I learned through the forums (outside of the official training). The reason the launch videos and affiliates are giving stuff away for free is because there’s still tremendous value in the stuff they don’t show.
2) Matt and Jason aren’t as active as i would like them to be. They essentially show up every once in a while, which kind of annoys me, but i guess they have other things to do. Within the 30 day period is when I saw them most, but I guess that’s how it goes
The Amazing Selling Machine does teach relevant information, but you can absolutely get the same information and a proven plan using Skip McGrath’s selling program. Skip has been around forever and his methods are solid and easy to follow.
I am not allowed to make earnings claims, but I can quote what others have posted on the forum about their own experience. One of my students wrote about buying an item ex China for $1, with packaging another $1 he sold the product for $25.
Interesting….I would say the only vital thing out of that list is the auto-responded. I have a solution now that I use that is around $25/month or so depending on volume. Alliance sounds interesting, but the rest of the stuff sounds like filler and cheap SEO tools.
If you go with content marketing (written or video) the key is to target keyword phrases that you niche audience is searching each day, create quality content that helps people, then repeat the process.
