So why did I bought the course then? Well to me, the course is not worth the money, but the value is in the private community. I joined thru an affiliate (the biggest out there, check who’s at the top in this launch and you’ll know who I’m talking about) and I am in 2 private communities. This is where I feel the value is in. Along the way, when you faced problems or need help in your amazon business, you can seek advise and help from more experienced sellers in the communities. That’s why I stayed and paid the course fees in 4 installments.

The other type is “FBA” or “Fulfillment by Amazon” which means that Amazon lists your product, and when orders comes in, Amazon will ship it for you, provide customer support & even handle refunds for you. This makes it possible for you to run an efficient on-line business that you can run almost semi-automatically for a small amount of fee (FBA Fees).
I guess that most of them send us the same email scam: “Very good friend of mine who is great guy makes $1,00000000000 a month on Amazon, eBay, online etc. I personally use his system and never looked back bla,bla,bla….”
Well, not too long ago Amazon finally created the technology to create what are known as “one time” coupon codes. Only one problem with that – you had to create them and hand them out manually to each customer.
At that moment I realised PAC course re arbitrage, wholeselling was not for me. I did make money but not enough to say its worth my time. Also their were information overload ideas on using ebay and amazon, which is not a bad thing. I just wanted to focus on one thing make money and move on.
With regard to training, people can make their own choices about what is a good value for their money. I guess I don’t really understand why you’d pay for training to teach you the holy grail when most people haven’t just used the existing (and free) training that Amazon provides to do some testing of their own.
CleanTAS 263 : 3 TIPS to Overcome FEAR of Choosing the Wrong Product (Simple Process) Many people see the value and power of selling private label products on Amazon.

There’s really not anything to talk about, if you think $3500 was good value for this course good for you, I did not, I took Jason’s and Matt’s advice which was try the course for 30 days and if you don’t like it ask for a refund, which I did.
Surprisingly, the powerhouse affiliate system that built up around ASM has turned out to be the big differentiation factor. What I mean is that such large commissions create competition between affiliates, making bonus offers a real differentiating factor.
And for those that want to set up eCommerce sites and promote products on social sites versus content based rankings, I recommend Shopify. I still think it’s good to learn how to rank content organically and combine Shopify with Wealthy Affiliate’s training or vice versa.
The new price is $3,500. I just signed up. It looks pretty good. The community is very responsive and appear to be helping one another. Our first session will be on May 1st. Will keep everyone posted on my progress.
In short, Amazing Selling Machine 8 enables YOU to grab your piece of the Amazon business…and that is BIG business. That’s why this is the most successful online business education program ever created.
Not saying the marketing aspects are not SUPER important, but they are relatively easy and cheap to get learn and get done. Basically you just do what ASM teaches you. Most of it common sense that surprisingly few sellers understood this just 1-2 years ago.

Agree…if you are hell-bent on finding this information for yourself. The information is out there for those that want to find it themselves. Time is money so if you don’t want to look up this info for yourself, you need to pay someone to give you the info all in one place, ie. ASM + private community. (Remember when you had to actually get up to turn the channel on a TV set? Remote controls made this a thing of the past but you had to pay extra for it.)
5) The badge system, meaning that after you work through the modules, there are badges that you earn for doing certain tasks. They range from setting up you seller central account, to earnings badges, and everything in between. I think that is a fantastic system for getting people motivated. I found myself feeling proud of the badges that i was accumulating, and want to add more. it’s a great incentive system.
Ryan David – There are so many misrepresentations in your response that I don’t even know where to start. I don’t make a habit of defending myself in discussion threads, but you come across with so much authority that I need to at least say something to present the other side of the coin. I’ll keep it as simple as I can, and please don’t think I’m attacking you – I’m not. I would however like to show my side without it being seen as picking a fight.
Over the last 1-2 years the competition for typical private “easy to source private label products” on amazon.com has exploded. The last 6 months alone the competition has probably increased exponentially because of ASM. Not saying that there are no more opportunities out there, and there http://quotes.fatpitchfinancials.com/fatpitch.financials/news/read/35644596 of course always be new opportunities for “all-new products”. Those who are first on the market will usually make a killing.
CleanTAS 199 : Ask Scott Session #58 – Your Amazon FBA Questions You’ve found the show notes page for this episode of “Ask Scott” – the place where you can ask your own real-life private label questions and receive answers. But there’s more benefit than just asking your questions – you get to hear the answe 5/6/2016 Free View in iTunes
Plus, when you register for an Amazon.com seller account, you can sell on Amazon’s marketplaces in Canada and Mexico. If you also enable FBA for products you list on Amazon.ca and Amazon.com.mx, you can reach even more customers across North America who love Amazon’s trusted fast, FREE Shipping.
On margins, again it depends on product category, product type, aggression of promotions, platforms used to advertise, etc. For myself I don’t entertain testing a product if I don’t know that it can make at least 40% pure profit margin (although they sometimes don’t start out at that level). Currently my average profit margin is 53%.
This is the issue. I was in touch with Jim Cockrum for the Proven Amazon Course and it does appear that it is not as complete. Maybe this is wrong but it doesn’t appear the Proven Amazon Course goes into any detail about how to take yourself out of the process and have products shipped directly to Amazon FBA. Has this course been updated with this information? Does anyone know?
