You better have quality products and commit to do more than get bogus sales and reviews folks. It is possible. I had one dud and now one success that is growing very well. Biggest advice I can give, is that it is ALL about brand building. My noble competition is priced well below me, but I have the brand that sells at premium and I do not have to worry about the cost cutters (or the ‘viral’ sellers
This course gives networking professionals a functional understanding of the BIG-IP DNS system as it is commonly used. The course covers configuration and ongoing management of the BIG-IP DNS system, and includes a combination of lecture, discussion, and hands-on labs.
Listen, we’ve been doing this for a while and our specialty is not creating and launching Amazon trainings — for that, we rely on ASM. We then spend our time creating additional value to our audience who follows the ASM model right along with us.
Sponsored Ads Mastery is a full blown, complete Amazon Sponsored Ads video course that two ASM Masters, Chris Miyamoto & Steve Watanabe, created. These are the same guys who run our Amazon Sponsored Ads campaigns for our businesses!
Actually, Ryan, your single post just got me HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of ebook sales per day, and HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of new subscribers, as you can see in the screenshots below. The majority are immediate refunds, of course, as you can see, because all the info I sell is bunk.
The reason I ask, you are affectively paying for the forum and group consistently giving you new ideas and help. I know ASMers gets tools, which I know most people will question it. But the real value is networking with like minded people.
I have a special place in my heart for Ecuador, Quito as well. I have spent some time in Quito, got my passport pages extended one time and then my Colombian Visa another time. BTW, go check the Teleferico to see the city. It’s an amusement park surrounded with eucalyptus trees and has miles of hiking. You take the Gondola up (which is what Tereferico means in English)
Are you excited about the direction of your business? Do you feel like you have all the tools and lessons you need to go out there and build a thriving ecommerce brand? If you need that extra push to keep going and continue firing on cylinders, you’ve come http://markets.financialcontent.com/salemcomm.kkol/news/read/35644596 the right place. It’s time for another session of Ask Scott here on The Amazing Seller ……
Here is what I know…I purchased the course they came out with last year that they sold for $1k…was it worth $1k? Certainly not! I guess if you were complete newbie it would be helpful but still i think it was overpriced.
Thanks, Yohan, for your input and yes, you are of course right. I don’t really have a problem with that though because all marketers are doing that sort of research the whole time if they have the know-how …aren’t we?!! I don’t begrudge them that because I do trust that they are basically ‘ethical’ guys and whatever they are learning I think will mostly be funnelled back into the strategies that they will be sharing with us.
The real key is to make a unique product possibly get it patented and sell by the boatloads, SEE GRIPMASTER, no one else makes the exact same product, so they have no direct competition. I do well on ebay, and sell semi-custom items, I would like to expand hence my interest in ASM.
If I take myself as a case, to answer your question, it took me til around week 10 or so (if I remember back correctly) working approximately 2-3 hours a day on my first product (I was, at that time, running a management consultancy full time).
I agree with your critique on the general retail arbitrate strategy. I know some people that specialize in selling a certain type of toy and they know it very well. They buy them on craigslist, they buy them on closeout, and then they sell them at the right time. I still think it’s a little too much hustling for my liking, but some of them have a passion for the product so you can call it a hobby as well. Personally, I’d rather sell for slimmer margins and then figure out a way to squeeze margins out of higher margin add-ons.
Tonight I was on Dori Friends presell ASM webinar. She had the creators of ASM on there. The funny thing was that they gave the whole method away on the webinar. LOL (I know this because I’ve already been through Josh’s course and know all the details).
Update (Feb 2017): Proven Private Label 2.0 has just launched (As of 17 Oct 2017, please don’t buy PPL2.0 on it’s own as it’s now included in PAC). I have started going through the course and can say that it’s very similar to what I do. Most of my sales are in fact “Private Label the Easy Way” type products, including my first and oldest private label product which is currently ranked Top 1.9% in Beauty and another easy way SKU at Top 0.014855% in Industrial & Scientific! One note: All the “Proven” modules are initially launched as standalone courses. They can be purchased separately for those who want to get them at launch. However if they are related to selling on Amazon, they will be added to the Proven Amazon Course about 6 months after launch. This means that if you buy the Proven Amazon Course, you get continual updates at no additional cost – making PAC an incredible value, with course content that is constantly being improved and updated.
CleanTAS 293 (Avoiding Lawsuits) Product Liability Insurance 101 and Best Practices One of the things Amazon sellers can easily overlook is the issue of liability. Is your product safe? Should it include a choking warning? Is there a risk that you could be sued or that your product could be held liable for harm done to a person or the. 12/12/2016 Free View in iTunes
I highly recommend Amazing Selling Machine to anyone who is thinking about it. In a relatively short period of time you can go from no business to a great business in months or a couple of years. …Building yourself a brand that is respected, known and that can be sold up the line. These Amazon businesses are valuable assets too. Another way to look at them. See More
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.
The value, if any, to any Amazon course is simply opening your eyes to the opportunity. Outside of that, I don’t think any courses really have a ton of value; and that includes the cheaper ones available on the market.
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.

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.
