I purchased ASM3 and than wanted (and got) a refund. It’s not all that’s its cracked up to be. I was able to get a copy of the full program and it does have merit – but not for the price. I bought the Proven Amazon system and think it’s just as good for 1/10th of the price. Both communities are very good – so you’ll get the same result.
Click this link if you’d like to read more about their training program. Keep your head up Ryan, I too lost close to $5K on my first importing adventure, I was lucky to make it up and 10 fold, but I didn’t quit. I made importing work, but didn’t like the risk or the high level of involvement.
Like flyingdutch, I am not in a position to comment on the ASM course, but I am qualified to comment on the part I have highlighted. Sourcing is a vitally important part of the process, and many people are led astray by posts on this forum.

Great Book Scott. This book got me into selling my products on Amazon. This book sent me down the rabbit hole. Let’s hope I can apply what I learned here sufficiently. This is just the beginning though and the book deals very briefly on the whole process one needs to go through to get a product onto Amazon. It’s only about 100 pages but it’s powerful and gripping, well worth the read.

Really enjoyed the online course conducted my Srini.I first took the Oracle RAC ASM DG course, the training was so interesting and informative, I was very impressed by the training so I also took the Oracle DBA training from Srini. He is a very knowledgeable person and explains everything clearly and patiently http://voiceofkl.com/news/amazing-selling-machine-course-evergreen-launch-2018-start-an-ecommerce-business/0045744/ material provided as part of the course is so useful and easy to follow. The training and the labs are well planned and structured. I would recommend these courses for both beginners and for the DBA’s who are already doing some admin tasks who desires an understanding of what they are doing already , Srini covers both basics and advance level topics as part of this training. He is very prompt on replying to emails when you have any questions or issues. I’m glad to have taken the courses from dbauniversity. Thanks Srini, I really appreciate your effort and teaching method.
You don’t try to compete with a large brand, you try to compete with a smaller/medium size brand that has no marketing skills. There are not many manufacturers selling on Amazon, therefore there aren’t many people that have a vested interest in getting as many product reviews as possible. Just by doing that one thing, you’ll give the allusion (over time) that your brand is as powerful as their brand.
Newbies can get badly burnt. In September 2014, I met a lady who was in the last ASM course. She shared how she is in the middle of a huge mess after her ASM mentors got a bunch of them into private labeling health supplements. She has paid for the Amazing high fees, is out of pocket from ordering from one of the recommended manufacturers who messed up her product, has not been able to sell a single unit of the products and is battling to get a refund. She’s lost thousands of dollars and might eventually have to file a lawsuit to recover something. What a mess. To be fair, I also know one person who took the course and has had success with his private label products. But he is also a member of Jim Cockrum’s My Silent Team/Proven Amazon Course community and other well-grounded, zero-hype groups.
Panorama – I received a decent amount of emails from my video I created. Some of them were about bonuses because I mentioned Jason Fladlien would be one to look at if they were interested in ASM after watching my honest review. I ended up taking a look at some of the bonuses from some of the other top affiliates and buyers received some of the best because it became such a competition between affiliates.
It is certainly possible to buy $200 worth of product direct from manufacturers in China, but you need to know how to get them to agree to that. Most newbies blow it on their first contact and wonder why they don’t get replies from suppliers. As a matter of interest, Chinese manufacturers are much more likely to allow small orders than Chinese wholesalers are.
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!
The problem is that they can’t. In a store like that, sure, you can make very minor adjustments in each department, but you can’t go putting the extra helmets for sale right next to the air conditioners.
Nine individual lessons will converse your performance checklist, your Amazon Sponored Ad listings, your content marketing strategy, and Amazon marketing service. The best thing I get here is “The Raving Fan Customers service system.”

And yes, I offer an real online educational program that is perfect for those who are willing to work and don’t want to risk a ton of money like you ABSOLUTELY will have to if your importing products to make real, substantial money online.
My guess is that the opportunity is much smaller than they are making it out to be – and that’s without all these new members. That’s why it makes sense for them to sell this course rather than keep the business model to themselves.
Common people, The only Thing what Matters for Selling Products anywhere to be able to Beat ANY Competition By OFFERING Product at Lower Price than anybody Else. Not by creating funky images and Subject but by Offering LOWEST price, That’s all It Matters. If I have Cheapest Price for Popular Product then I can compete with Anybody without all this Hype. It’s all doesn’t matter, Try to compete on Amazon when Alibaba Members selling their Stuff Directly on Amazon/Ebay how you going to beat them? If most Wholesalers now Selling directly as well. Good luck offering lower price then them. And This is the
I can show you a day where I did 250 unit sales per day, does that mean I made $300K in a month? If I was an enterprising internet marketer, I would pump sales to my product for one day and then just extrapolate that out for the year. Besides, the reports that these guys use are misleading; they don’t include the fees that Amazon takes.
There are people who have gone full speed ahead and invested in the thousands to fulfill the course recommendations, only to find that their product is sitting in Amazon warehouses, with little to no sales. Yes, overpriced
So I reached out to PAC forum, and asked how can I expand my business either hiring people (scanners, as they call them,) my reply was if you show people how to scan, you run the risk of someone leaving your org and starting on their own. Another thing to worry about..
Amazon, for me, is as profitable as ever. I put in 2 years doing merchant fulfilled and now am about 14 months into FBA and sales are through the roof. I have an extremely high quality product with over 700 reviews on Amazon and it allows me to basically charge a premium on my product that other people can’t. During our busier months this year, I raised the price of the product to almost 35% above competitors and the sales were still coming in fast and furious. I had my biggest day of my career hitting over $11K in sales in a single day.
“It works. It’s a great business model and Matt and Jason, Mike and Rich are great teachers and the group is just loads of fun and if you take action you can build a million dollar business in a relatively short period of time.”
Exactly. It’s still about competition. If they found something that brings in the $, they don’t want others on the bandwagon! And after hundreds or thousands of “clients” out trying to duplicate the success, most will end up at the dead end and give up when the money runs out and disillusionment sets in.

Disagree…the person who referred you to the course has absolutely nothing to do with your success or failure with Amazon or the ASM course itself. I am an old member who signed up about 3 years ago and have no idea who referred me because it doesn’t matter.

I have some stuff that I would share here and there with people, but I have a handful of tips/tricks that I would never give away for any amount of money. Even if I collected a large sum of money upfront, it wouldn’t be worth it if the tactics became more common knowledge.
The email issue falls into the category of nuances unique to Amazon, which is why I think most people need personal attention even if they buy the course. Of course, since that’s what I’m offering, people should be aware I’ve also got a conflict of interest when I recommend that.
The only tool that is of any use is the Email tool that will allow you to automate follow-ups for reviews. Obviously, if you’re starting out, you can do this manually until it gets to be totally overwhelming. After that, there are simple solutions that will automate it for you and they go for a small monthly fee.
