You sound like the voice of experience. It’s really hard when you get something all figured out then they change the system or yank the rug out from under you – especially when it happens over and over again. That’s why I like to be my own boss and the Selling Machine sounds like a way to do just that. You’re right, it’s expensive, but if you make lots of money while using it, then so be it. Besides, if there’s a money back guarantee how can you go wrong? Thanks for the tip!
Hype like the Amazing Selling Machine is going to make you rich. You have to do the work in whatever business you get in to, and that’s not how the Amazing Selling Machine portrays their business at all.
If someone is barely making rent or barely able to buy groceries, do not go with the Amazing Selling Machine. You’re looking at 5K on this overpriced program, then another, at the minimum, 5K in importation and marketing fees. And you could easily spend up to $20,000 dollars and still not have a super profitable importation business.
Since you purchased ASM a few years ago, I’m sure you’ve already got a network. If not, I’ve heard good things about a couple of high-level paid Masterminds as well. I’m not a member of any myself though, so they would just be second-hand recommendations.

Although the genius behind Amazing Selling Machine, Matt Clark, is a personal friend of mine, I went through his course as a student, occasionally calling him with questions or asking them while zip lining or riding elephants on our trip to Thailand.
The podcasts are pretty good, and I followed the same path you did…after listening to about 10 of them, it started getting old, I wasn’t learning anything, and so I quit listening. That said, he has a lot of good content that will get people started, and I think he tries to err on the side of caution when giving advice.
Jim Cockrum is the most respected online and doesn’t push stuff just to make a quick buck like most others do. He actually wants to give his readers VALUE, as well. If all the other IM marketers truly wanted to help their readers in this area, they would be affiliates for Jim Cockrum. But money seems to play a huge part in what is promoted.
Basically all I have done up to this point is the initial research, sourcing the products and getting them listed on Amazon and in my FBA inventory. I have not had the time to do any of the promotional work. My second product just went live yesterday so up to now, I have only listed one product.
There’s Anthony, who was working three jobs to make ends meet when he joined The Tribe. Anthony didn’t have much going for him, except for a burning desire to succeed. Anthony had some bumps and bruises along the way, and success took longer than he expected. But after fighting through the challenges, Anthony had a business doing $30,000 per month. But more importantly, he had several clients that he was helping with their marketing, and making six figures on the side! Anthony has since quit all three jobs and is now a full-time entrepreneur.
This course teaches the exact strategies I’ve used to build Project Life Mastery to where it is today – with over 190,000 YouTube subscribers, 11 million video views (600,000 views/month), 130,000 unique website visitors per month, an e-mail list of over 120,000 subscribers, thousands of social media followers, and ultimately a 7-figure per year online brand.
CleanTAS 293 (Avoiding Lawsuits) Product Liability Insurance 101 and Best Practices One of the things Amazon sellers can easily overlook is the issue of liability. Is your product safe? Should it include a choking warning? Is there a risk that you could be sued or that your product could be held liable for harm done to a person or the. 12/12/2016 Free View in iTunes
So I struggle with the concept of selling an item that is already there. Not to mention going against a well established seller with a few hundred reviews. My choice would be clear as to whom I would purchase from.
Scott Voelker got into e-commerce by teaching online photography. He realized he could sell his own informational products online full time and earn a livable income. He built a successful business and brand, New Portrait Biz, in 2008. In 2014 he heard about Amazon FBA sellers and how profitable it could be and decided to take a crack at it. If you’d like to hear more about Scott listen to his first podcasts where he gives a full introduction here.
CleanTAS 233 : (Hot Seat) Slow Sales After Running Out Of Stock – Now WHAT? Every Amazon private label seller is going to face this problem sooner or later: you’ll run out of stock so quickly that you won’t be able to get new products to Amazon in time. There are many ways you can deal with it, 7/25/2016 Free View in iTunes
To be fair the product creators suggest that you can gain an advantage if you promote the product well via Amazon and You Tube and they’re right – this will enable you to stand out from competitors. However, there’s nothing to stop other people from doing the same thing.
My goal with the PAC is to build the largest audience of successful Amazon sellers in the world by providing the most cutting edge strategies at a price anyone can afford, and then recruit & pay the “best” among us to constantly raise the bar for the rest of us – and that is exactly where my focus is with the PAC.
Regarding their auto-responder: there is a service that costs $5 a month that many sellers in the FBA Yahoo Group use and even then a lot of them don’t want to risk their accounts by being that aggressive for reviews and cross-sells. These two dudes just give bad advice, and the problem is they could easily find out the “official answer.”
ALWAYS ask for a sample. It will cost you $30-$50, however it’s worth the investment. Also, you want do some level of inspection. Either you get the load shipped directly to you. And you or someone on your team inspects. Or you can hire a 3rd party to inspect it right at the factory. For $200-$300, the inspector will write a full report including pictures. Get this done BEFORE you release the batch. It’s worth the investment and a great option, especially if you’re international.
However, I did have a concern that the course is an 8 week course. Does this mean it can only be accessed as they release it? I really don’t like that. I would rather be able to see the course in its entirety and work it at my own pace.
I have been listening to this podcast daily. I have already found a product and ordered a sample to begin with selling on Amazon FBA. I feel so much more confident in starting up thanks to http://www.newswest9.com/story/37326182/news great advice and awesome interviews with guests. I can’t stop listening! Almost ready to launch!
I rarely take the time to comment on forums, but sometimes the “Lack” mindset of “Warriors” is just too overwhelming. Why some people feel they need to comment about that which they know nothing about is perplexing.
But to answer your question, way to pick the most ridiculous example possible and paint the entire process with a broad brush. Maybe you can’t sell TVs as private label, but just go ahead an pick the other 99% of things on Amazon and do it private label. Just because something is a “brand”, doesn’t mean it’s a “brand name” to the general public. There are tons of products that are sold through big boxes, but nobody associates “Product x” with their name.
I have purchased this program and quite amazed with the level of training – which is super easy and detailed. They really want people to succeed and tell others about this amazing opportunity because it helps them to make more money with every successful ASM launch. It is that simple. With their last launch they made more than 11 million dollars.

I’m not dogging ASM for their product because I can already tell the product is way better than PAC. The product itself is probably pretty good; I’m just not sure it’s worth the price. They did a nice job outlining the process in the free videos and the x-factor is your own ability to evaluate opportunities. I think you’re paying for a lot of high-margin/low value add-ons that aren’t really going to move the needle (eg. 7 software tools (not disclosed what they are) and 3-day event). I might be alone in my thinking, but I question the ability of most training courses when it comes to “delivering alpha”.
