Basically all I have done up to this point is the initial research, sourcing the products and getting them listed on Amazon and in my FBA inventory. I have not had the time to do any of the promotional work. My second product just went live yesterday so up to now, I have only listed one product.

This is what I experience after reviewing hundreds of products to import, brand, and sell on Amazon. I had some success and when you have a great product, importing and selling on Amazon can work like a charm, but the risk of not selling products is real.
If you reread her statement, you can feel that she felt taken advantage of by not knowing all the costs that would be involved with setting up an importation business on top of the 5K you spend on the ASM. She called ASM a scam, but I think that was just frustration from being blown over by their marketing tactics.

I underwent training in this DBA university and the faculty is amazing…I didnt expect this much of information to be acquired out of this training. The faculty uses white board and instant lab sessions, so you will feel like typical classroom training and since the lab sessions are completed then and there, you dont need to work hard after the session gets over. You just need to be focused and follow instruction of the faculty to become a expert DBA either in core concepts or in RAC,ASM and DG. The training is truly amazing and enhanced my knowledge multi fold.
Yes, we get amazing seller machine You have a different, cheaper course. Do you think Honda can get Porsche clients by telling them this – hey our car is more reliable and less expensive? While other courses may be good, they don’t have the support around it that this product has. It’s impressive how much value is being generated in order to gain this type of traction. If they weren’t helping others become successful, they would in turn not become successful.
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.

Minnie – thanks for writing. No doubt the days of just sending anything into Amazon and immediately reaping big windfalls of cash over. Now we all have to treat selling on Amazon as a ‘real business’ with the same inherent risks as any online business, BUT (unlike most other online businesses) the rewards can be high. Selling on Amazon still has far more positives than negatives, regardless of the type of sourcing done (Retail arbitrage, online arbitrage, wholesale, private label, liquidation, etc.)
Well, to be frank, I think I know a decent amount about SEO. I’ve been doing this since 2005 and have generated millions in sales from organic traffic. I also know that “trickery” that used to work in 2010 doesn’t work today. I stand by my statement that tools like this are simply re-purposing old software that they can’t sell as “SEO Software” anymore. Instead, they call it “Amazon Software” and expect everyone to fawn all over it. Of course, backlinks still work, but crappy push-button backlinks don’t.
In the beginning, making money online was as easy as taking candy from a baby – but do not try this baby-larceny. Trust me, this is an arrestable offense. Anyway, all I had to do at that time was find good offers and use Google Adwords to advertise and sell stuff.
We are also realists and know no matter what we say sometimes things do not go according to plan. For this exact reasoning we have developed, in our humble opinion, the best Guarantee in the industry.
I sell Amazon FBA on a daily basis and have tons of products I sell for 100%+ ROI. They are easy to find, so your basis is big time unfounded. Private Label is a great way to sell FBA without the competition. I know plenty of sellers who have great success with that. As far as I’m concerned with actual experience, FBA is a great way to have a profitable online ecommerce business that actually makes $ if you do it right and be smart about it. Better than any affiliate mess I’ve tried with blogs, websites or whatever. Google has and will continue to do whatever it takes to make SEO as hard as possible. In my opinion, the small time SEO entrepreneur is wasting their time. FBA is a viable business model. The seller of this product might be selling worthless goods and is obviously making his $ selling his product rather than doing full time FBA. But as far as I’m concerned, FBA is a legit business, you do have to work at it, it’s not hard to find products and there are ways to beat out other sellers who sell at a lower price. Your statements are not based on actual and factual knowledge of the FBA business model and you should learn more before making unfounded comments.
With regard to contacting Amazon customers directly, I think the policy is pretty clear that you can contact them within the context of that transaction and no more. Does ASM advise doing more than that? Asking for reviews is ok as well.
2) The forum, as well as the facebook group (which you won’t get access to until AFTER the money back guarantee period is over) are absolutely top notch, which is critical because of a negative that i will post in a little bit. There really are some great moderators that give there time and knowledge.
I’ve noticed a couple members who are like Scott’s white nights…people, he’s just some random internet marketer that talks about FBA. And now, guess what, he’s got a program to sell now. Not hating though, because he’s just riding the train while he can and his info is solid.
Scott!!! Your energy, passion and metrics for building a successful company around selling on Amazon come STRAIGHT through! Keep the mojo rocking because I will be listening intently and implementing methodically.
My point (again) because I won’t let my integrity (qualified by hundreds or thousands of fans/followers/readers) go undefended: If my objective was to make money and I didn’t care about my reputation/fans/followers/readers, I would have promoted ASM (I was an approved affiliate). Again if the angry and miserable (1% of the reviewers) actually listened to/watched my review, you would have seen that my potential revenue from promoting ASM was at least $17,000, and it could have been a lot more. My affiliate earnings from promoting the other courses/ebooks in a separate video was a mere fraction of what I could have earned promoting ASM. I guess full disclosure wasn’t enough. To appease the 1%, I should have just said in the video, “If you want to sell on Amazon, I have nothing to suggest to you.” Which of course would have saved my tribe/followers/fans the whopping $27 to $99 and/or prevented informing them of ASM course alternatives. Boy was I short-sighted on that one.
And, to be perfectly frank, for very many they’d rather not tell the world about ASM (for fairly obvious reasons). Many are also annoyed that ASM3 is coming onto the market and there is a debate to be had about whether or not it can be ever again.

And it was all over a technicality not a violation (not submitting a data feed for product import because I had decided to just enter the products manually as over 90% of them were existing ASINs). Amazon’s support is horrible. They do have phone support, mostly incompetent. I still sell on Amazon but it is not, and has never been, my only online sales channel.
Went to buy my tickets yesterday, only to find out, to my surprise, they nearly doubled in price. I wouldn’t be upset if I had known about the increase, but since I didn’t go on your Facebook page, I …had no idea. A simple sentence on the ticketing page notifying me of the pending increase would have alleviated my current frustration.

I’m not sure what products the ASM guys target, but that’s generally not the way I do it. I will test the market with “generic” products that I get from domestic sellers. That typically requires a small investment (typically there are no minimums) and I’ll send it in to see how fast the inventory will turn. If it moves quick, then I know that I have a winner so it’s only a matter of muscling the price down to the point where I make the margin that I need. I buy the product overseas, get it branded with my logo, and create the listing.
I’m just trying to get a sense of your credibility for offering training vs. what people can learn through ASM. For what it’s worth, I’m not sure yet if I will be promoting it this time. I may decide to recommend against it…I’m not sure yet.
