My products are just sitting in Amazon’s warehouses collecting storage fees. They suggested that I get product reviews, meaning buy product reviews. Now Amazon is trying to police that as well. It’s pretty tough to brand a product unless you have something that’s considerable better than what exists in the Amazon marketplace or can come up with a whole new idea.

I knew I was in the wrong place with Amazon Associates as it just seems to be too much time and effort for little reward for me, but FBA was out of my comfort zone so I never jumped in eventhough I bought what is now ASM6 3 years ago! I need to speak with you privately about how you did this! Can you send me a PM please?

If you are from the US, then go with Jim Cockrums PAC (Proven Amazon Course) for now. You will learn the FBA part very well and will be ready when the ASM course (or a follow up) will come along in the future (next year?).
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.
The “theory” behind the PAC (Proven Amazon Course) is one that should be modeled for ANY legitimate course or training offered in the “online entrepreneur” niche. It’s time to raise the standards of what we expect from the courses we buy.
Plus I think that those that want to get into the importing/drop shipping business using Amazon’s Fulfillment Center can learn how to do it much more economical using Skip McGrath’s Amazon and eBay tutorials.
Wow! I’m shocked with the $3500 price tag. I really wanted to do this but I’m priced out. Plus I’m getting hit with a 34% cut in take home pay in about 3 weeks because of the sequestration budget battle by the clowns in Washington. With a family of 5 and a price tag of $3500 there’s no way.
In summary, it is possible to have a successful business on Amazon.com however it takes effort and determination. The possible payoff is big though. Think of having a successful e-commerce business in a couple of years from now. You could pick in between a consistent monthly money circulation of thousands of dollars each month or you could choose to offer your business for up to 25x your net month-to-month income. There are buyers for organizations like this on websites such as Empire Flippers.
As for why our support team is not doing it, it rhymes with “Non Compete Agreement” and “Non Disclosure Agreement”. Each of the employees in our offices, on the first day of the job, sign each of these. And they clearly know what they are signing. Im not going to reveal all of my business to anyone like that without protecting myself.
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.

So I have no product in inventory and it looks like it will be another week before I am up and running. I will go ahead and post another review in 30 days that should be more helpful with some real stats and figures, but here are a couple more things I have learned since the last review.
If you look at all the affiliates peddling this product, note that most have never done this, and the ones that have do not have successful products on Amazon. They all say that it’s a business model that they “plan” to add to their current business, but nothing could http://syokasia.com/news/amazing-selling-machine-course-evergreen-launch-2018-start-an-ecommerce-business/0045744/ further from the truth. The reality is that they are selling products to others through their huge mailing lists (ASM being one of them) and that is their TRUE business model.
Oh and here’s the other interesting bit of info…when I was cranking out product and I hit 25k….my product made it to the bottom of page 1 for 1 afternoon but has kind of just permanently stayed at number 19-22 on page 2….. so I was selling a TON- on PAGE 2!!
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 .The 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.
That’s the only frustrating part of this business – the time it often takes your product to arrive at Amazon is usually longer than you would like it to be. You’ll be so excited to get your product, and so pumped from the training, so that eight week waiting period can be an absolute torture. It also can play a role in managing inventory (discussed later).

If you are in need of a little boost, look no further! It’s time for another session of Ask Scott here on The Amazing Seller! On this episode, you’ll hear Scott’s encouraging and helping ……
I’ve learned! For anyone who hasn’t watched Josh’s video, do yourself a huge favor and do so…NOW. Great accurate info. And if you decide you want to learn more from him, do so. I’ve reached out for help in this thread and after getting some help, Josh went out of his way to give me more.
Affiliate marketing also has allowed me to create an asset. I too didn’t like the idea of writing to make money online, but when you write about subjects you’re interested in or have a passion for, it’s not all that difficult and actually can be very rewarding.
Module 8: You will learn about how to scale your business to the next level. This is where you can outsource the work to others, plan on future product launches so that your business will reach new heights.
As with every business, there are a million different unexpected things that can and will happen. You will always make some mistakes and more importantly there will be always be the very common “this makes absolutely no sense” amazon-issues, dirty play from competitors, idiot buyers, IP laws, liability issues, shipping problems, quality problems, dishonest suppliers, problems with outsourced labor, complicated taxes etc. etc.
Google the phrase “brett $5000 bet jim cockrum interview” to find the interview I recently did with him on this topic. He actually won a $5,000 bet on my blog as well – it’s a great story. I would give you the direct link to the interview, but I’m not sure if I’m allowed to link to stuff off of WF or not so I won’t. You’ll hear our recorded interview and learn more about his course etc. once you look it up.
That being said, I’m not just trying to attract affiliate sales with this post. I’m actually finding it more difficult to recommend the course unconditionally with ASM 5. It’s still great training that provides a lot of value, but a few other good private label courses have been released since the last launch in October. I’d still consider ASM to probably be the best one out there, but it comes at a significant premium relative to the alternatives. For people who can afford the high price tag, it’s still the way to go, but it’s definitely a tougher call now that there are new options that cost thousands of dollars less.

This is your chance to learn how the guys go through ……
As he said it was not easy to start but eventualy things are automated. But you are always looking for something new to sell and the circle spins all the time. There’s also big starting investment and a lot of people who tried the system was stopped by that fact.

With an affiliate website, your risks are maybe $50 to $70/mo which isn’t much. As you build your site and your authority within your specific niche, your income growth can be anywhere from a couple thousand dollars/mo to over $50,0000/mo to $100,000/mo.
Probably the most obvious thing is the price, the Amazing Selling Machine training is NOT cheap. BUT – when you consider that something like lawschool or medical school can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars and take you 8 years to complete…the price tag and 8 weeks of training doesn’t seem that bad anymore.
