Click this link if you’d like to read more about their training program. Keep your head up Ryan, I too lost close to $5K on my first importing adventure, I was lucky to make it up and 10 fold, but I didn’t quit. I made importing work, but didn’t like the risk or the high level of involvement.
Sure, I was making money with affiliate marketing. I was doing launch after launch, but each lasted one-week, and that was it. Sometimes I would prepare a website for a whole month and end up making only a few thousand dollars. Let me tell you: I really missed those big launches that snagged me $250k in a single month.
CleanTAS 266 : (Lost Episode) How Paul Turned $30 Into $1,000’s with ONE Product and New Problems After Success If you’ve never looked into the possibility of selling your own private label products online to build a business of your own, this is the episode for you to hear.

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
I’m not going to google and cite the many, MANY, lawsuits that happen in the fashion industry because it is an intellectual property minefield and there are so many issues involved that it is difficult to give someone a blanket answer. Fashion also falls under copyright law (in many instances) and in some instances an actual design can receive trademark protection (such as Burberry’s plaid).
Sorry to hear about your results with Amazing Selling Machine, and that just hurts to hear about the added $1,700 bs fee. I wish you would have come to my site earlier. For $5-$10 dollars you could have gone to Fiverr.com and gotten someone to write product reviews for you.
The same goes for Amazon FBA. I’ve been selling on Amazon for about 3 years and have been on FBA for 8 months or so. I did $90K in sales on Amazon in 2012 just by doing merchant-fulfilled. I’ve done $270K so far this year and I couldn’t keep my products stocked for half the year because the volume was so high (something I’m remedying as we speak). I’ll probably finish the year close to $400K. And I’m confident that next year I’ll be darn close to $1M if I can get my act together.
Therefore, part of the reason that I’m hosting this mastermind is to meet other implementers who may fit as potential partners on future projects. Yes, I often partner with Tribe members on their businesses to grow them.
My first inventory batch had 516 units and it was completely sold out after about one and half month. And remember, I am a complete beginner who knew nothing about selling on Amazon before joining ASM. The system really works!
The coolest thing is, this course is NOT for procrastonators. By the end of week 1, you’ll have a list of product opportunities. By the end of week 2, you’ll have orderered product samples to physically examine. Don’t worry, you’ll not be alone doing this, you’ll have the full support of the team of mentors, AND the other students doing this along with you!
CleanTAS 275 : How to Liquidate Products to Get Your Cash BACK with Brad Kugler More often than we’d like to admit our choice of a private label product was not the best choice we could have made. It’s either got too much competition or is not in a viable market to expect sufficient volume of sales. 10/31/2016 Free View in iTunes
Have you ever been handed a failure investigation and were not quite sure all the steps required to complete the investigation? The initial steps of a failure investigation set the direction and, in many cases, ensure a successful investigation or doom it to failure. Here is a chance to learn the steps to organize a failure investigation and ensure success.
Not having any experience what-so-ever with Amazon, and only very limited experience with putting a small number of items up for auction on Ebay back in the day, this program was of high interest and came along at the right time for me.
There comes a time peter when you have to commit following a course through and making it work instead of discarding it after 5 mins. those like i said that get refunds on things are generally non action takers and who more often than not are always looking for that shiny object and push button millionaire. im sorry to say but making money takes a lot of hard work. so i always go by this saying.
This opportunity is definitely going to get much harder over the next few months as another 4,000 people come through this course, making at least 7,000 official and x,xxx non buyers chasing the same products.
This is a new training program that will reveal to you the exact strategies I used to get hundreds of Amazon reviews on various products, in a short period of time. You need Amazon reviews to get your product to sell and out-rank your competition, so this training is critical to your success!
Jim Cockrum’s course is great. The only downside is he focuses on a retail arbitrage process and that can be difficult to scale and sustain, and for some people it’s just not doable. However, all the basic building blocks are there. Where Amazing Selling Machine improves is by focusing on manufacturing, branding and marketing. Or private labeling, branding and marketing. But you don’t need the course to do that. However, you do need to understand how to purchase from manufacturers and/or distributors, the basics of branding and product promotion and marketing.
I was confused further when someone I approached from ASM said I could have the ASM7 entire course at a single payment for $997. In between that and your article, I think it is wiser for me to stay put and work on building an online business via Affiliate Marketing.
Unfortunately the import business is not an easy one. I would prefer it about affiliate marketing as I don’t like to write content everyday. And I wonder if the affiliate marketing business isn’t as competitive as selling on Amazon or maybe even more.

Keep it Simple and Smart and forget the amazing selling machine – as you stated, the amazing selling machine cares nothing about your success, they only care about getting your hard earned dollars. It’s time to give these jerks the boot.
So I reached out to PAC forum, and asked how can I expand my business either hiring people (scanners, as they call them,) my reply was if you show people how to scan, you run the risk of someone leaving your org and starting on their own. Another thing to worry about..
It really depends on what you sell. Having said that, a lot of you are assuming you have ZERO liability in whatever you do. Just because you aren’t aware of the liability of what you’re doing doesn’t mean you don’t have liability. Product liability is a whole different beast, but there are product categories where liability is not that much of an issue, and there is insurance.
As you can see in the attached screenshot, I’m on pace to do $20k this month…mostly from private label product. While it’s not a lot in the grand scheme of things, I do know what I’m talking about when it comes to selling on Amazon.
Thanks for your feedback and sharing your experience of working with the Amazing Selling Machine, affiliate marketing, and Skip McGrath’s programs. And one thing I always preach on this site is the importance of community support.
I saw the promotion for this too and was quite intrigued. But to ask $3,500 for just a few videos they presented, I found that to be ridiculous. So I went on Amazon and searched for a book that teaches FBA. I found 2 good books on kindle each costing under $5. One is “Amazing Amazon FBA Work From Home The Easy Way” and the other “Making a Great Living with Fulfillment by Amazon”. The books are very informative and will give FBA a go.
But as long as I do it correctly, It should work! But I also have no problem breaking even and getting a great learning experience in the process if it did not work on the first go around. Then I would just tray again.
The more some decidedly bitter folks try (inaccurately and without listening) to discredit me, the more buzz it creates, the more traffic I get, and the more sales I make. So my suggestion to those (like, 1% of all the contributors here) who want to go to great lengths to discredit me (or do things like create a Warrior account for the first time in their lives just to launch a tirade), PLEASE continue doing so, because I just keep winning, with more accolades from my tribe of followers, more sales, and an increasingly honest reputation.
THe broad brush that Malik paints with regard to private-labeling is ridiculous. Sure, I wouldn’t want to private label some health supplements, but I’m not sure I would be ready to eliminate the possibility of selling thermal printer labels in my own packaging. amazon selling classes the equivalent of calling the entire e-commerce industry “risky” because of potential problems associated with poker websites.
I think IMers fall victim to all the clichés that Matthew just pointed out above; “time is money”, “cracked the code”, “proven record”. I’m not telling anyone anything that they don’t know already, but I’ve seen firsthand some INCREDIBLE examples of marketers co-opting someone else’s success and then spinning it to sell their own products. If you bought this course and were doing $50K a month in sales and took it to $100K a month, you can guarantee they’d be implying that you did it because of their course, even though you probably would’ve got there anyways.
As you can see from my screenshot above – I made over $10,000 in September – only five months after joining ASM. For me it has more than paid itself off. I feel like I am well on my way to creating a six figure a month business and I have a clear path to follow.
I hear what you are saying, it is a tough call, I can see a lot of people giving up before the magic has happened. This is a lot of money i understand. I have in fact told a few people about this, whether or not they jump in is beyond me, $200 a day isnt really mouth watering to them.
