I will just be starting on the program, so I will post results within few months. Super excited about this opportunity. I like WA a lot and already have some good progress with it, but ASM is another opportunity that allows you to have your own products and be a direct seller.
6.) I have sold on Amazon Fulfillment and with a good product that I have gotten at a good price but sometimes it does not really generate that much profit ..maybe 10%. Understand that on Amazon Fulfillment you pay lots of fees as as well as the commission and the cost to ship it to the Amazon warehouses
I’m going to take the plunge into Private Label FBA, and TAS now has this Private Label Classroom, but it’s pricey and it’s not necessary…Scott even says the information in the classroom isn’t secret or special, that everything you need is in his free podcasts and free resources. The classroom more is about the community, the visual learning, structured implementation plan, and weekly Q&As with Scott (and a guy named Chris I think). So they are definitely being transparent about what the classroom is and isn’t and I think it may be good at holding me accountable and actually get this done in a timely manner…but if I can save ~$900 and get a product of mine up and running then that’s probably the better method…
In addition to a US collection account, we also have a new pilot program offering an EU collection account (for SEPA transfers). If anyone has interested in either service mentioned above, feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to assist in getting you set up.
A part of the reason is the very reason you mention…. and the solution is in your comment. Forget bright shiny objects and focus on efforts… the answers you need can be found without spending a fortune if you spend the time.
Another example: At the ASM live event, I met a nice Chinese woman who did not know much about Internet Marketing. It took her only two months to get her product going on Amazon with this program, and I recently noticed on Facebook that she is making $8,000 a month!
I still don’t understand why these guys need to make a course about it and sell it. If they’re making so much money, and want to make more, surely they’re better off finding some more product opportunities on Amazon that they can white-label?
Keep in mind many established products have spend years developing their brand, competing will be very difficult, to establish a sellable price, expect to discount your price considerably if the product has a real following.
@neckrub – I have a YouTube presentation walking through the 8 steps on getting started with selling a private label on Amazon. I’m also doing a hangout tomorrow, which I will answer any questions about selling on Amazon and my alternative training. Click on the Facebook icon under my name and you can sign up for the hangout there.
Get ready for the very first Hot Seat session of 2018 with Scott and Chris on this episode of The Amazing Seller podcast! As always, the guys will break down an email from a TAS follower like you and then go through step by step what they see what’s going well and what might need improvement. This is your chance to learn how the guys go through ……
I started our Amazon business to support Big Cat Rescue in the spring of 2017, but had been listening to the Amazing Seller podcasts for a while before. You inspired me to TAKE ACTION despite all of the other demands on my time caring for nearly 70 lions, tigers, leopards, bobcats, servals, caracals and other exotic cats.
As far as the course goes, I’m happy to discuss it, but I’ve already admitted that it is a worthwhile program and I would now recommend it. I had previously recommended against it, but have since changed my position.
I see you decided not to answer my question about where most of your income comes from…selling on Amazon or as a Marketer, but based on information you’ve posted publicly, I’m guessing you make more money as a Marketer these days.
We shouldn’t feel so special about Jordan treating us this way though. If you look at his product reviews on Amazon, he uses the same strategy when people bash his products. He gets all huffy/puffy when responding to their comments.
Jordan Malik is a best-selling author, podcaster, serial entrepreneur and award-winning Amazon merchant. Jordan has been interviewed by Time, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, and several entrepreneur podcasts and publications.
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.
CleanTAS 446: TAS Behind the Scenes and Vision for 2018 and Beyond! (Recorded Meeting) Have you ever wondered what is going on behind the scenes of The Amazing Seller? What is the team cooking up for 2018? How do they plan to expand their reach and help sellers get their ecommerce business off the ground? On this episode, 12/4/2017 Free View in iTunes
Amazing Selling Machine is basically a reference for you just like Wealthy Affiliate to get faster where you want. They give you the formula on how to find less competitive products and market them properly on Amazon and start selling quickly.
NOTE: Products is a downloadable e-book, software, video. No physical products will be shipped. After you order, you will get INSTANT ACCESS to download them and all the bonuses. Products format is adobe acrobat PDF, software, video, which can be viewed on Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, Android or Kindle.
The easiest way to get over this is to take the apply the old Facebook motto “move fast and break things”. You need to be relatively quick on pulling the trigger in daily implementation of what you learn but patient in the long game of replacing your income.
Thirdly, would you rather have a number of false starts following the advice of self-appointed wannabe gurus who have never done it themselves but are rehashing other people’s half-truths (alternatively, you could also choose to waste a lot of time on Google with no clear idea of what is wheat and what is chaff), or would you rather learn the most effective and efficient way of doing it from people who have been there and done it?
I’m a coach for my son’s soccer team and the league has a saying that “the best teacher is the game itself”. In other words, you can study and do drills, but the way you get better is by just playing.
So my suspicious is that once you get to that point, you might realize you don’t need additional training. And in fact, it’s usually FAR FAR FAR more valuable to actually purchase products from successful sellers and take note of what they are doing.
I could be wrong but I believe that is why people give up and then see the next shiny object hoping that it is easily doable and they can do it. If things were simplified then I believe many more would finish the course and get results. Granted not everyone will get the same results because it is all about the products you choose and whether you get lucky with one that works for you etc..
I also believe that the training and everything they provide makes it well worth the value that you’re getting for the price. The Modules are all amazing and detailed, the community and member interaction is top-notch, the mentoring you receive from the “Mentors” are also incredible, as well as the Live Event (which I haven’t even attended yet) is supposed to be off the hook.

The video claims of massive sales volume and 50% margins are ridiculous. Any product that actually moves well normally already has 10 other sellers willing to sell barely over cost – or it will have that many sellers once the volume becomes anywhere worth bothering with.
It’s amazing selling machine price to compete in categories where there’s more brand diversification. You have to think: in what areas are people more likely to try a niche or unknown brand? In certain categories niche brands make up a sizable portion of the market share.
In this module, you’ll learn how to craft the PERFECT Amazon Listing (I’ll do your first one for you as a bonus for buying via my link), initial strategic keyword research, creating a traffic grabbing product title, bullet points that differentiates you from the competitors, creating a compelling product description that actually gets read, and much, much more!
Joe, you should know that whatever business you put up, online or offline, it’s going to take work to make it successful. Most people don’t care about importing, what we’re really talking about is making money. Plain and simple.

And regarding your examples that you laid out, it’s always easier when we’re just speaking in hypotheticals I guess it depends on how you define your margins. Some people saying “My gross margins are 66% because I buy it for $10 and sell it for $30 on Amazon” while others will define their gross margins by 33% because they deduct the Amazon fees and transportation costs associated with selling it. The latter is more accurate in my opinion.
