They do not show you how to private label products. It is an excellent course, it teaches you exactly how to sell on Amazon, exactly how to source items online, and exactly how to automate (outsource) the grunt work so you can maximize your time.
I find it very enjoyable when people (or certain person) lays into either FBA or ASM methods. All I can say is, yes ask for a refund, your not needed. While most of us who are making over $100k a month all the way to the bank, I am not hear to brang. Just find it laughable someone wants to call it a scam. Maybe we should call you a scam for not putting in the effort and not sticking with something more than a month, sigh- What a joker.. For really, go find a push button program. If it didnt work for you, fine. That is understandable, but throwing the word/phrase (scam/its a scam) JOKER!
Likewise, if you go to the ASM website, you’ll notice that the course is currently unavailable. This is because the training is offered for a limited time only, after which the enrollment link expires. However, at some given point in time- say next month- that link will reactivate and another limited time offer will be posted.
I do really like the sound of this program. It is just priced to high me at this moment. The way you describe it in such great detail makes want to keep track of this program and maybe use it in the futrue.
The best thing that emerged from my searching – the name Jim Cockrum kept coming up as someone with a proven track record and pretty much undisputed recognition as a trustworthy, honest and true authority in the Internet Marketing/Online sales arena. That led me to Jim Cockrum’s Proven Amazon Course (PAC). After a few days of research and deliberation I finally bought into it and after 11 months, I always tell people it has been the best investment I have ever made in my life.
Heck i could be wrong, maybe this is the greatest product ever made (but I swear I see that once every couple months lol) but experiencing what I got for $1k last time this is a definitely a no brainer…dont buy!
Let me clarify, 95% of the SEO that ASM teach’s no longer works and is simply a waste of time, free press releases, spinning articles, weird linking schemes etc etc are all 5 years or more out of date and are killed by the 2012 and 2013 Google updates. The only tactic that has any merit these days is videos. If any of the spammy tactics do work it will be only for a very short time, but the feedback I’ve read from people in ASM who tried them is that they seemed to have no effect at all
Thanks for sharing for your opinion on this, but I totally disagree on it. All but one of my products are more expensive than my competitors, some even $20 more. Yes, some selling more than others, but that is how it is sometimes. My goal for every product I launch, is to sell 5 min a day with a 45% min profit margin, and follow the marketing information in ASM. So far it has worked.
Also people buy products by brand, because of trust which is earned. If you check most categories in Amazon, you will see that most of the best sellers are branded products like Brita, Philips, Morphy Richards, etc etc. How do we compete against global players like these?
Side note, they are opening the doors again in October, visit the Facebook Launch Event @ https://www.facebook.com/events/498865126848262/ to keep up to date on the latest re-launch of the Amazing Selling Machine Course.
Regarding their auto-responder: there is a service that costs $5 a month that many sellers in the FBA Yahoo Group use and even then a lot of them don’t want to risk their accounts by being that aggressive for reviews and cross-sells. These two dudes just give bad advice, and the problem is they could easily find out the “official answer.”
Hi Janeiro, Amazing Selling Machine will open again on April 22. If you sign up my email list, you can start watching the pre-launch video from around April 13th. I heard the registration fee will go up, but I think it’s a small fee to pay compared with what you can make with it.

Congratulations, you can make money using this system but making the right choice of product to sell is a very big part of getting it right, sounds like you made a good choice, the training in the course was way too general leading people to make poor product choices
When I first purchased the Amazing Selling Machine, I’ll be honest – I didn’t even open it and get started with it for a few months. I was simply too busy with many other projects that were consuming my time.
Does a turnkey Fulfilled By Amazon (FBA) business appeal to you? Whether you are looking to expand your reach or if you want to get started selling on the ecommerce marketplace by purchasing a business, there are a few things you need to consider
When I get into a new product thru FBA, I will purposely underprice it in order to bully people out of the product. I have a little strategy for doing this so it hits them at the right time. Typically this works best if you have 1-2 other competing FBA offers (no more than that). Some people are more stubborn than others, but most will eventually move on and that’s when you can bump up the price until someone new tries to come in. Most of the sellers on Amazon are not making that much, so they can’t afford to play games like this so it works pretty well.
I’ve heard of the Amazing Selling Machine, but like you said, the cost of the product is a little off putting. Then again, you’re paying to learn how to build a successful business on Amazon so it makes sense.
Because the price of ASM is absurd i was looking for any help on Amazon and Alibaba. Then I remembered I bought Importing Fortunes many years back but can’t access the site anymore. That’s when i decided to make a search on a review on the product. I landed on your site and read your review. Made good sense.
3) As an add on to the forum (and facebook group), they have weekly webinars that go over that weeks worth of content where you can ask questions about what you are learning. They are recorded if you can’t make it.
I am not allowed to make earnings claims, but I can quote what others have posted on the forum about their own experience. One of my students wrote about buying an item ex China for $1, with packaging another $1 he sold the product for $25.
Steve and his wife were unhappy with their 9-5 jobs and with the discovery of an impending child they made an unconventional move. His wife quit her job, and they started a successful online store: Bumblebee Linens. Like most businesses it started slowly, but their gamble paid off and they were able to fully replace his wife’s $100K salary. Steve now runs a website and this podcast to help others who would like to follow in his family’s footsteps.
How are high profit margins generated? By convincing customers that the product has very high value and is in limited supply. Thus, the ASM training doesn’t just include the 8 week course but additional value-added items such as the Vegas trip and lifetime forum membership.
I checked out your review on the Amazing Selling Machine. I really appreciate your reviews. They are in-depth and well-rounded. I may get Skip’s books as well. I think each program provides a unique perspective. I do agree that some programs are excessively expensive though.
While that is a valid perspective, the real answer is “infringement and liability vary greatly depending upon the product you are trying to sell”. It’s also a complicated issue and there’s no way to give blanket advice that works across industries and products.
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.
You can, in seconds, export every single review that a product has into a file that you can easily sort and find out some useful information. Like what? Well, keywords of course! And you know how one good keyword is easily worth thousands per month per product to you!
You do not run an “Amazon business.” You run a BUSINESS. Amazon just happens to be your channel for getting sales and customers. >Matt helped me see that there are no magic buttons, there are just products and customers.
You obviously have not read this thread recently, I already posted a few times that this is a good business model, I am doing it right now and making money, the problem is the ASM course was not very good and about 5x over priced, in my opinion. The forum they set up had thousands of questions posted in it… and the reason was because the course just glossed over everything, a lot of cute 5-10 minute videos for the most part
The value of the program is not worth the price. Sure there is good content but it is really basic. I personally know a person who signed up for the ASM and was really disappointed because she felt the content did not justify the price at all. By the way she is a true guru who was a single mum struggling to raise her kids just 2 years ago but is now making over $1 million a year while homeschooling her children.
In my opining, the best, most realistically priced training program to sell private label products on Amazon is Skip’s Complete Amazon Marketing System. He will show you how to get the job done for a tiny fraction of the price that the Amazing Selling Machine charges.
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.
ALWAYS ask for a sample. It will cost you $30-$50, however it’s worth the investment. Also, you want do some level of inspection. Either you get the load shipped directly to you. And you or someone on your team inspects. Or you can hire a 3rd party to inspect it right at the factory. For $200-$300, the inspector will write a full report including pictures. Get this done BEFORE you release the batch. It’s worth the investment and a great option, especially if you’re international.
