In the sales video Matt will say that there are people in ASM that have had products they have been trying to sell for years and their sales took off after getting ASM. That sounds great but is very misleading, these people already have a product.
Scott, host of The Amazing Seller Podcast, highlights all different aspects of management and marketing in this can’t miss podcast. Scott along with his expert guests offer insightful advice of how to become an amazing seller!
The most important takeaway for you, whether you buy ASM, another course/system, or learn on your own for free: Take action. I’ve seen hundreds of sellers fail because they don’t take the first few steps – they just prematurely quit. Take action, follow through, ask questions, and pick yourself up if you fall down.
The truth of the matter is that you used an example which is actually a minefield (fashion) and I have been in that industry for a while. So, while you cannot legally put the brand Prada on a bag and sell it under your own brand, you also cannot NECESSARILY make a bag in the likeness of a Prada bag and sell it under your own brand.
I did the same thing for awhile and had great success with it, but it was always an issue with quality control for me with my suppliers who were willing to drop ship. They had good products, but most of the suppliers I used couldn’t consistently deliver quality products that didn’t break down. I think I had around 30% defect rate, which isn’t good for customer returns and service.

One of the problems with the ASM course is they started out suggesting you could sell an item for $7 and do well, obviously they had not done the math and quickly changed it to $9 after a few days, even at $9 Amazon are taking 42% in fee’s, after product and shipping costs you would be lucky to make 2 bucks net profit. It was clear to me that the guys promoting this were pretty much making things up as they went along
All the above tasks are performed with the help of a Database Management System (DBMS) and the leading and most widely used DBMS across the world today are the Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL database etc. Out of the three DBMS technologies, Oracle Database is the most popular and widely used database in the world today. Oracle ASM, RAC and Data Guard are some advanced options in the Oracle database software that help provide high availability and protection of data.
My point– it is not $3,000 of value. It is $3,000 because their business model for selling it allows them to create large affiliate payouts, bonuses and incentives, to ensure the course is a success.
Well these guru types do that a lot. They take a stand on a certain issue/strategy, then do a complete 360 when it suits them (product launch, selling an affiliate product, etc.,). It’s almost like they forget what they tell there readers, or think they won’t remember.
Consider a few basic concerns just before building a site for the business if you’re simply beginning out with web site marketing. That is your target customer base, and what do you think they’ll get out of your site? Must you keep a sensation of instructions in your mind, you’ll be most likely to make a website that keeps consumers returning.
Pick a product, order a 10–100 depending on the cost/ your budget and the minimum order quantity (MOQ) of your manufacturer, send the product to Amazon, market it and move on from there. Keep the momentum going If it works order more if it doesn’t move on and try something else. The key is to keep moving forward.
However, after thinking about this, I don’t consider this to be a downside at all. I like the fact that there is a high barrier of entry for people to sell on Amazon, as that means there will be less competition and it will be easier for people like me to get in early and take advantage of this growing trend before everyone else.
As you look at the various FBA courses out there, I think it’s wise to remember that Amazon is pretty unforgiving when it comes to gaming the system. So if you see a course that talks about getting you only 5 star reviews for your product, or having secret software that will blast your product to the top of your Amazon niche, think long and hard about the consequences. If you’re serious about FBA, I’d avoid anything that might put your Amazon account at risk. They’re not blind and they have algorithms that track volume and other stats.
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).

As everyone else who got in the program, I watch each and every training video that was released. The most frustrating part of this business is how long it takes for your actual product to arrive at Amazon. For me personally, it took about 10 weeks to get my product sourced, designed, labeled and shipped to Amazon.
I watched your video and your comments above don’t change the fact that (a) many of your points in the video had little merit; (b) you diverted people to another product where you would earn an affiliate commission; and (c) you decided to post a link to your video “review” here, but it http://www.news9.com/story/37326182/news wasn’t only about helping your reputation/fans/followers/readers/tribe. In fact, the post was ultimately deleted by moderators, presumably because they found it to be too self promotional.
