I have been listening to Scott Voelker’s The Amazing Seller Podcast for about two years, and continue to find it helpful and inspiring. Scott’s enthusiasm is a bonus that can hype you up on top of the fact that he has a real talent for breaking things down into simple (and actionable) bites of information that you can use. When he says that he is rooting for you and encourages you to take ation, I 100% believe that he is genuine, and having met him face-to-face at one of his meetups, I can tell you that he is the same encouraging, enthusiastic, and helpful guy in person as he is on the podcast.
Most people assume you need to dump a bunch of money and import from China. With a recent deal that I did on Amazon, I simply purchased smaller quantities domestically to test the market. I made very very little on this, but it gave me the confidence to purchase in larger quantities once I had a good feel for potential demand. When you’ve got a winner, you scale up.
I don’t think it’s too strange that posters wouldn’t come out of the woodwork. For the first 2 years, Stompernet was great but if you posted in here, you’d have most people just calling it overpriced.
I can show you a day where I did 250 unit sales per day, does that mean I made $300K in a month? If I was an enterprising internet marketer, I would pump sales to my product for one day and then just extrapolate that out for the year. Besides, the reports that these guys use are misleading; they don’t include the fees that Amazon takes.
Todd… I enjoyed reading your take on ways to make money with Amazon. I can’t say I agreed 100% with your assessment, but I did agree that for people hoping to make money on Amazon they need to be careful about throwing thousands of dollars into programs thinking they can “buy” their way into success.
I am not affiliated with ASM. I don´t promote ASM. I don´t advice against ASM either. I have only seen the ASM sales videos. My Amazon account has about 40 times more orders than Jordan Malik. I sell products. Have never sold books or advice. Have never been an affiliate. Don´t plan to do any of these. Just hate to see ignorance stand uncontested.
Little background on me I have SEO experience have had several sites in the top spots of search engines. I used to have a wholesale business and am very familiar with the private labeling that all seem to be amazed about. One question just cause you private label a product does not make it yours others can do that also the manafuctures dont care lol
Yes, he was the #1 affiliate because I’m sure a lot of people were impressed by his bonus. He may be a great guy who knows what he’s doing and I know he’s not the only guy who does this stuff, but it’s just an example of why people need to really be aware of the details.
CleanTAS 282 : (TAS Power Hour) Amazon Promotions – Contest Strategy – Instagram – Dom’s 80 Year Old Grandma One of the things Scott and his buddies have been enjoying are the Friday afternoon chats they have about Amazon private label sales, e-commerce, online business, and much more. They’ve been having so much fun they decided to start recording them so y 11/16/2016 Free View in iTunes
If we look at ONLY the private label section of PAC (Specifically Proven Private Label), the training isn’t very comprehensive. It does an excellent job in some areas, but falls well short in many others.
Since you purchased ASM a few years ago, I’m sure you’ve already got a network. If not, I’ve heard good things about a couple of high-level paid Masterminds as well. I’m not a member of any myself though, so they would just be second-hand recommendations.

First, sign up for Amazing Selling Machine using my affiliate link. I make a few bucks when you sign up through me, but it’s far less than my private coaching rate of $4,000 per month for one phone call per week. You’ll be getting access to me – as well as the rest of The Tribe – for free when you use my link.
Date: The live webinars will be presented on Wednesdays at 2:00 pm. (EST). The first topic will be delivered January 4, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. (EST). Live webinars will conclude on February 8, 2017; however the recordings will be available on-demand for one year following the live presentation.
I can find 100s of products to sell in 2 minutes. Again, that’s the problem. The problem is finding a good quality product at a price where I have profit margin. If you could that, you can make a lot more money providing that service for people.
I agree with some of what you are saying, which IS structured in the ASM area, and I quote “If you follow a cookie cutter system, then you’ll be lumped in there with the rest of those guys selling sleep masks and crystal balls. You might not even try to do something because you’ve been told that it’s impossible!” I agree with this statement.
Heck, even his book encourages people to sell used plush toys on Amazon when you’re not allowed to sell used toys on Amazon. The solution is to mislabel the item in some other category I’m assuming. ha
Probably the most obvious thing is the price, the Amazing Selling Machine training is NOT cheap. BUT – when you consider that something like lawschool or medical school can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars and take you 8 years to complete…the price tag and what is amazing weeks of training doesn’t seem that bad anymore.
That conversation helped “free” me from the idea of trying to game the system, and from there, my business started growing by leaps and bounds. Instead of looking for quick fixes, like we are so trained to do in this crazy “internet business” world, I set out to build a real business following the Amazing Selling Machine system.
First, I apologize to those that posted questions asking me for answers. I don’t really check this thread frequently and didn’t subscribe to it because I already get way too many emails and don’t want to get distracted.
Sample products = $100 (average estimate) (not quite true. 95% of my products are from USA, most of my suppliers sent out a sample for free. And even my other supplier who is outside the USA also sent me a sample for free. That is best case. Worst case, I agree with you. My cost $0
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.

As for me, forget all the middle people. I am planning a trip to China to go to the next big FAIR. Good products over that never see American daylight, ripe for picking. That’s just me and that tip’s free. 🙂
Reviews can make or break you on amazon so it’s best not to even bother with a product that is of medium/poor quality. That might be the temptation at first, but any sales momentum gets absolutely squashed once the truth comes out. You can only manipulate reviews so much before the reality comes through.
Initially what caught my attention was its price tag: $4,997. I’ve bought cars for less than that! I thought, “What kind of program charges $5k in this economy?” Prices for most Internet marketing programs are going down to $27 – $37 – maybe $397, if it’s really good.
I purchased ASM3 and than wanted (and got) a refund. It’s not all that’s its cracked up to be. I was able to get a copy of the full program and it does have merit – but not for the price. I bought the Proven Amazon system and think it’s just as good for 1/10th of the price. Both communities are very good – so you’ll get the same result.
