In the nutshell the whole concept behind Amazing Selling Machine (ASM) is to teach you how to drop ship products on Amazon. They show you how to get the maximum profits by buying products at low prices on Alibaba or any other whole seller and re-sell them at 30-100% margins.
It is the most expensive online marketing product I have ever seen. I thought it’s price would be around 500-1000$, but actually it was a shock for me when I saw the price. I don’t know whether the product is good, but the price of 3500$ seems like too much for me.
Both Jason and Matt come from the info product world and have successfully transitioned into doing well on Amazon. So for info marketers who have had some success…these are the right people to learn from.
Man what a bummer. I really hate to see people in your situation because it reminds me of what I have gone through to attain success online and I’d feel so disappointed after putting in that kind of effort with this kind of outcome.
I would assume most people realize this, but when you’re shopping around for a “coach” you should be careful of the sales figures that are reported. I have a product that sells for $9.99, costs me $1.25, and I net (after all fees and product costs) $4.76 per sale. Last year I sold 630 of them over a 9 month period. This is the type of product that is so far under the radar that it probably wouldn’t cross anyone’s mind to sell. Sure, it’s not a HUGE money maker, but I profited around $340/month in profit.

The more I read about other people’s experience, the more I think that selling other people’s products on FBA is just hustling for dollars. You can still make good money, but I wouldn’t spend my time making a few bucks at the sacrifice of what could be long-term potential. I would use it to pad your income and get some experience (if you’re new), but beside that it’s a little dicey. I still sell about 10-20 items that are other people’s products, but I see what I do and figure that it could easily happen to me. And then I read the people who this happens to (who rely on the income full-time) and think that they are doomed in the long-run.
Scott!!! Your energy, passion and metrics for building a successful company around selling on Amazon come STRAIGHT through! Keep the mojo rocking because I will be listening intently and implementing methodically.
Use Great Images. Must be on a white background. One of the most important elements. The thumbnails need to be eye catching. Make sure they help sell the product. Tell a story. Lifestyle photos do really well. Think of it as a mini catalog.
FB groups suck in general…why in the world would someone start a FB group instead of a forum anyway? There is 0 organization on the group, and so people keep asking the same questions over and over again.

Hi Mac – no doubt, finding reliable suppliers in China can be a big wrestling match BUT when you do find one, it gets easier. I was turned on to sourcing from U.S. suppliers via ProvenPrivateLabel (which is now included in Proven Amazon Course.) And my up-front investment in products was $500 (versus, say, $3,000 for my minimum order quantity in China, albeit for a different product). Like any other course/system, ASM *can* work if you stay committed and keep trying.
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.
You can make thin margins and decent volume by cherry-picking the best amazon products to sell; if you do that, you’ll make decent money quickly. White-labeling a product is a long-term approach and it’s one that might not start to pay dividends until you’ve built up your product, but it pays off massively down the line. Once you get some volume, you can start tweaking the product design.
CleanTAS 308 : What You NEED to Know about Sea Shipping and Freight Forwarding Probably the most intimidating thing about sourcing products for private label sales from an overseas supplier is the issue of shipping.

There are some really upset customers in that course and a ton of unanswered questions in their forum. And just so you know it isn’t just sour grapes, they are both doing very well on Amazon, but they had to learn most of it elsewhere as there was A GREAT DEAL OF INFO that was left out of the original course.

It seems to me that there is plenty of information on Amazon on FBA and on YouTube that an entrepreneur can use to start a successful selling campaign on the Amazon website. Now there are very expensive (e.g. ASM) and very cheap (e.g. PAC) courses that tell you more or less the samething on what you need to to do but at the end of the day it is all to do with you, in terms of affordability, your appitude to apply available information, the amount of hand-holding you need, your accountability to someone more successful doing it and just your ability to becoming focused and getting on with it. My main concern is the vast majority of people who embark on these courses will fail no matter how expensive their course was, or how much information and help they were given. Generally it is all to do with attitudes and your ability to face and overcome obstacles you will inevitably run into along the road. Success has a price that all must pay. The elusive free lunch of doing nothing and expecting a good return doesn’t exist per se!
This is not to say the ASM program is no good, or that they guys running it are unethical. But be aware they are getting very critical marketing data from all their members. And there is no doubt they will use this data to rank their own products in the future.
The Amazing program give people like myself, who never ran an online business a chance to be successful with the step by step process and strong support. I am just starting I know I will be successfu…l with my business. See More

This way I can bring in somewhat endless amounts of traffic for work that I created one time. Then I just add in affiliate marketing and I can promote any brand name product without risk of bulk purchases, shipping, taxes, customer support, returns, etc..
I started selling and found alibaba organically. This podcast takes what I was doing previously and provides and an opportunity to see it through a new lens. I never considered some of the intricacies in the way that it is presented in this podcast. If you have the desire to push yourself further and want more out of life you now have hundreds of mini seminars at your fingertips. Thank you for this podcast. I started on episode one and am working my way forward. I had no idea there were these selling communities. You were featured on a small business podcast and that is how I found you.
But really – no ethics, whatsoever from those that pretend to be such ethical marketers. What a crock. I guess by the time people figure out what they’re really about and have moved on, they have a whole new set of unsuspecting people to fool and extract money from.
So, since you’ve already learned how to sell – the next secret is buying for the right price which will enhance your margins. If you buy for the right price – you have a very small chance of getting stuck. For example, if you are buying your own product for $10 landed and selling it for $24.95, then if all else fails and demand dries up or competition jumps in – you can always drop down to $15 sales price and still recoup everything after all costs.
Good for you, Mark; you have risen above the others. My inbox was full of promos for this from marketers (at a certain level) that are now deleted. Its almost as if they are getting desperate, or something.
My first inventory batch had 516 units and it was completely sold out after about one and half month. And remember, I am a complete beginner who knew nothing about selling on Amazon before joining ASM. The system really works!
