Here is what I know…I purchased the course they came out with last year that they sold for $1k…was it worth $1k? Certainly not! I guess if you were complete newbie it would be helpful but still i think it was overpriced.
Scott found success with Amazon. He invested $5,000 and made $40,000 within 90 days. Later he started a podcast around it called The Amazing Seller. The podcast blew up, now he teaches thousands of students how to build a profitable business on Amazon.
It is healthy to be skeptical going into any new program. But it appears that you are trying to tear these people down. Their online reputations and students speak volumes for themselves and rise above any personel critisizim you may have. Do your research and play nice.
Like you if I had any advice for someone starting a business online, it would be to start an affiliate marketing business. The start up costs are almost negligible and if you work hard the income will come.
The overall strategy makes sense, but it really has little to do with the traditional IM product. This is all about selling a physical product via an online marketplace. I think the reason it’s being promoted to the IM space is because people are looking for the magic way to make millions and this product promises that.
A couple of things you mentioned caught my eye which was and I quote “My books are constantly in the top 10 in their niche, but it just doesn’t translate into big bucks.” This is one of your main problems, you stayed with a low return business module. I am aware of the course last year which was based on many methods (private labeling, wholesale, kindle ect), and M&J highlighted kindle is a great business, however the return is poor compared to private labeling.
There’s Cindy, who had been a “lone wolf” in this business before joining The Tribe. She had seen modest success, but after joining the Tribe, her business tripled. She now enjoys a million dollar business from what she learned and the connections that she made inside of The Tribe.
I have not bought this course, I did buy their previous one and refunded. I don’t respect what they are doing. Everybody is entitled to get what the market will pay but when courses are this expensive, you know that tsome people are maxing out cards, or using the last of their cash reserves, with serious hope, especially in a depressed economy with high unemployment. And while you can say to each his own, people make their own, choices I just can’t respect it.
Have you ever yearned to sell products on Amazon? Have you always wanted to own your own products on Amazon? Would you want to have an online business that would replace your regular income? If the answers to these questions is yes you may want to try out the Amazing Selling Machine 8.
I have been using Amazon FBA for 3 years now. Well about Amazon Selling Machine I have met a couple of people that have used this program and some have had success and some have not. What I noticed with any programs is that the one’s who actually apply it will have success. It is a good program with a high price tag but from what I have seen with some people it is worth it.
A wealth of information. I had previously paid for an FBA course from one of the FBA gurus out there and it was 497$. It was short on details and left me with too many questions. I found all of those pieces easily laid out in Scott’s podcast. The guy is also really nice to listen to. He is like a natural radio host. He keeps the flow and the tempo of his material up and he’s upbeat but not in an annoying way. He just delivers info in an easy to understand way that makes it very approachable. I downloaded Itunes just so I could leave this review. I very rarely review something. So this is special.

While you may think this is just “splitting hairs”, describing your profit margin as before the cost of your product is flat out wrong. Im not saying you aren’t profitable, but Profit Margin is NOT just Sales minus Amazon Fees. Either you weren’t only talking about Amazon Fees or you don’t know how to define Profit Margin.
I agree that if your goal is just “to get started”, you don’t need a course to show you that. You’ll learn from your own mistakes along the way, but most people won’t figure out all the little things that make a big difference…and that’s leaving money on the table.
