A few weeks ago I bought something on Amazon that seemed like it was fairly priced (and a good product), but probably didn’t cost much to produce. I ordered the product, found the supplier, and contacted them. I verified (through some questioning) that they were the supplier for the competitor. They wanted an initial order that would cost me $16K upfront and I negotiated with them a smaller initial order that will cost me $2K. I laid out that I wasn’t a cheap skate or a newbie, but that it’s going to take me some time to ramp up the marketing and don’t want to sit on inventory while I do that.
This course provides networking professionals a functional understanding of iRules development. The course builds on the foundation of the Administering BIG-IP course, demonstrating how to logically plan and write iRules to help monitor and manage common tasks involved with processing traffic on the BIG-IP system.
The ones that make me laugh are the ones that say, you don’t need a website, you don’t need hosting, you don’t need a list etc.. then when you get into the training it teaches you how to create a website and suggests Hostgator for hosting and conveniently here is the link which is an affiliate link lol. Also you see some that say this is the only tool you will ever need and in the pdf they are promoting other products which they claim they use.
I LOVE that each module is broken up into small ‘easy to digest chunks’ of information. It makes the content easier to absorb, in my opinion, and easier to go back and watch something again if you need further clarification.
The coolest thing is, this course is NOT for procrastonators. By the end of week 1, you’ll have a list of product opportunities. By the end of week 2, you’ll have orderered product samples to physically examine. Don’t worry, you’ll not be alone doing this, you’ll have the full support of the team of mentors, AND the other students doing this along with you!
It is over priced. Sure they will tell you how to sell stuff on Amazon, but it ain’t rocket science. Find well selling products in the top 200, 300, 400, 500 on Amazon, that you can private label. Find the suppliers and negotiate your best price.
If ASM was simply another online drop-shipping class, it would probably cost no more than two or three hundred bucks. However, as Matt Clark noted above, a business is more worthwhile if it generates high profit margins.
“The fact that Amazon not only let us sell to their millions of customers but also do all the hard work and ship the orders out to our customers is just mind-blowing. It’s the single biggest opportunity of our generation.”
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.
I guess that most of them send us the same email scam: “Very good friend of mine who is great guy makes $1,00000000000 a month on Amazon, eBay, online etc. I personally use his system and never looked back bla,bla,bla….”

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.
I’m still around Travis. I have been absorbed in building this business over the last year while trying to also maintain the one I had before this one. I haven’t checked this thread much but took a look today.
So too often, people give someone credit for the ENTIRE success instead of the courses ability to deliver above the benchmark. The benchmark in this case is the free information that is readily available.
He told me that their training’s were exactly the same thing that he teaches only not in video form. So Skip’s Complete Amazon Marketing System (which goes for $150 USD’s) has the same info that ASM sells for 5K. He didn’t take them up on his offer to make more money by selling the customer out, and I think that says a lot about integrity.
Therefore, even if you are one of those people who do not end up DOING anything, you will not be ‘out’ any money. But if you DO make money with it—like all the sharp marketers are—then I would say that $4,997 is extremely cheap.
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.
3) This is all based on the premise that being found in the SERPS will be a major factor in Amazon sales. I don’t know, but I don’t find many Amazon products by looking in the SERPS. I just go to amazon and type in the product name.
Agree…if you are hell-bent on finding this information for yourself. The information is out there for those that want to find it themselves. Time is money so if you don’t want to look up this info for yourself, you need to pay someone to give you the info all in one place, ie. ASM + private community. (Remember when you had to actually get up to turn the channel on a TV set? Remote controls made this a thing of the past but you had to pay extra for it.)
ZERO TO 100K PER MONTH WITH ADWORDS – the system was originally created by one of our customers, James Watson, and with his permission, Jason interviewed him, extracted all his knowledge about the system, and then described the entire system to you so you can implement it yourself.
I purchased this program back in March and after spending several months on research, identifying products, and interacting with manufacturers, came to the conclusion that not all that glitters is gold. Don’t get me wrong, the program does offer some good information, but it really glosses over the amount of additional cost that it takes to get anything off the ground. The tutorials offered are not detailed enough to warrant the high price. I am now trying to figure out a way to obtain at least a partial refund from them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Like I said though, if you haven’t attempted to sell thru FBA, then I think you’re wasting your money. I don’t know if people realize this, but there is a forum full of successful FBA sellers at Amazon that are 10x more knowledgeable than most of the product creators I’ve seen.
Q: How relevant is the information in the 2nd half of the course for someone new to Amazon vs the first half? Seeing the posts about how the level of information drops off after the refund date has me a little concerned.
About a week ago I joined a webinarjam about Amazon, the guy tried to charge $500’s for his services to teach his way of making sure his students would be successful on Amazon. I didn’t, had some of the suspicions you’re stating above. I looked around though, a few success stories like & direct people to ASM, so I looked. I’m glad I found your site here.

Hi Jordon, I must say, as usual you hit the nail smack dab on the head, let’s use a little common sense here, does anyone really want to spend a ton of money for similar, proven training you could get for much less ….hmmm well let’s weigh this out, if you were to purchase all three of your other suggestions you would get a wider variety of training and 3 different perspectives for far less than purchasing ASM. …. I’m just saying, do the math and save your money to buy inventory. Thanks buddy for all you do to help others.
