It’d be hard to do that without giving anything away, but I’d say you benefit from collective knowledge. Someone comes up with an interesting idea, then others build on it. These ideas get tested by multiple people and you end up with pretty good evidence of what works and what doesn’t.
So back to last time, it was 60 day refund policy and my guess is they got enough refunds so this time around they said hey we have to grab as much money as possible so lets make the refund policy less time then what it takes to really get the entire product this way by the time people see the entire course and come to the conclusion that its not worth $4k its to late for a refund.
There’s definitely some stuff that I think should have been covered, and I think Matt and Jason should have been more available in the forums, but given the nature of the business model, I don’t think it’s possible for them to have covered everything.

With 3000-5000 each doing 5+ products it’s simple maths to see that pretty soon there will be 25000+ ASM products out there, that’s a very big bite out of the possible universe of products that would fit the private label model, that’s not including the many thousands who did not buy the course but are doing it anyway
I should also note, the very beginning of my PL and AMZ journey started after a conversation with a friend last Easter.,.. so 6 months later I’m up and running! I made some mistakes along the way, but overall I am making money (not a ton, but good for side cash.. hope to be ramping up my business soon )
Repeat this for the top 10 sellers for the product. If the top 3 aren’t selling at least 10 units per day, there’s not a lot of depth for that product and you may want to skip it. You want to compete for the 6th or 7th spot in the top 10. There needs to be enough room for you to compete AND make money.
Scott Voelker is the real deal when it comes to private labeling! I’ve been listening to his podcast for a while now and I really LOVE his way of teaching and SHARING his knowledge; most important of all is his being an humble and honest man, giving good advices to beginners and experienced sellers alike, and giving a nice positive vibe with his words and manners. His book reflect all of this and MUCH MUCH more. This is definitely a must for everyone serious about his Amazon business. 5 star for a great book and a great man!
Selling 50 to 300 units a month is realistic, you only have to monitor a few products to see how many are selling, I’m talking average here, once in a while somebody will do much better, and a lot much worse if you choose the wrong product
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.
I think the Amazing Selling Machine is way too expensive for someone who is new to online business. And yes, most online businesses should be much less expensive to start. However, with importing, you are always going to have the risk of inventory/no sales.
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.
Ok lets assume you can test market your own product “Bobs” silicone spatulas, and you can try a small quantity, and at least start at a break even price as you market your brand. WHY would anyone buy your item vs an established top selling item??? Answer better price, ok now try to sell your item, against more established sellers, again and make a profit or break even.
Finally, let’s say you don’t live in the U.S. but still want to work with Amazon- or are dreaming of one day “working-from-home” as an ex-pat bumming around on some tropical beach.

Jordan, listened to the ASM pitch and wondered why anyone would be willing to pay $3997 and more for this program. I have it all plus more with PAC and I did not even pay $399 for it. If someone pays that much for a program, they should run the business for the buyer.

I’ve never been inside ASM myself, so I don’t have any grounds to put it down or speak directly to your question. I’ve not even seen the promotional videos for it. I’m quite busy and I spend my time focused on building my business and building up the PAC course, recruiting our top students to contribute to the ongoing expansion of the creative ideas inside the course, and making sure our current students are getting top notch attention and care so they can be our next success stories.

Hi Merry. Thanks for your feedback. From what I understand the main reason someone would buy ASM is simply saving time to kick start Amazon business and start making money literally after 2-3 months. I mean if that is the case – then this is pretty good investment. Another reason ASM is legitimate program – they keep on bringing these launches and get a ton of sign ups and so far I can’t find very negative feedback.
