Searching online, I actually found a few ASM-like courses that not only explain the concept of drop-shipping via Amazon or Ebay, but are even segmented into various industries so you need not buy extraneous materials that you’ll never use.
Study of environmental needs of animals and bioproducts, control of building environments, construction materials, framing systems, and functional planning for biosystem structures. 3 lectures. Prereq: MATH 103 or MATH 104.
The value of the program is not worth the price. Sure there is good content but it is really basic. I personally know a person who signed up for the ASM and was really disappointed because she felt the content did not justify the price at all. By the way she is a true guru who was a single mum struggling to raise her kids just 2 years ago but is now making over $1 million a year while homeschooling her children.
The price is very high! And those with success can justify the price. I myself have spent about $2500 on another system that has several tools to use and shows how to sell on Amazon. Because of my small success I can justify the price. If I failed I would say it was a rip off!
Ask yourself this: if it’s so easy to do, and if the money is so big, why wouldn’t all the folks on their support team do it, too? Why waste your time selling something, if you can do so much better selling it to somebody else?
Logo design, label design and domain and hosting, you surprise me to include these as they are a ONE time fee, a part from hosting ($10 a month or less). I got my label and logo completed for $50 off fiver.
To answer your question, I just don’t think that press releases or video would really move the needle in any meaningful way. I agree with the core strategy of ASM, but there is a lot of window dressing in order to puff up the price. I don’t know about you, but I just haven’t gone from Video>Product or Press Release>Product during my shopping experiences. There are a lot of strategies within Amazon to boost sales that will yield better results. Maybe they talk about those things, but I kinda doubt it based on what I hear. So getting training on press releases is kinda silly in my view.
Important, only use amazon ads after you have at least 10 reviews on your amazon listing, otherwise you will be spending money sending interested people to your listing but have no customer review credibility to facilitate sales. Your sales will be low and your ad-cost-per-sale very high.
Not having any experience what-so-ever with Amazon, and only very limited experience with putting a small number of items up for http://www.fox5krbk.com/story/37326182/news on Ebay back in the day, this program was of high interest and came along at the right time for me.
In theory, it sounds pretty easy to private label and, for the most part, it is not that difficult to find the product, create the listing, and get it shipped to amazon. But if you’re selling kitchen ladles or whatever, sure, you can private label your own and own the listing. But there are (or seems to be) way more separate listings. So what’s the difference between the front-runner that has 500 reviews and yours? So now you have the difficult task of getting traffic to those listings (and reviews) to get the ball moving.

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. It’s the equivalent of calling the entire e-commerce industry “risky” because of potential problems associated with poker websites.
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
The easiest way to get over this is to take the apply the old Facebook motto “move fast and break things”. You need to be relatively quick on pulling the trigger in daily implementation of what you learn but patient in the long game of replacing your income.

Thanks, Jeff. At first, I was hesitant to tell people about a program with such a high price as ASM. But after seeing how much it has benefited those who were able to sign up for the course, I quickly changed my mind. However, even then, I’ve had some hesitation about taking the plunge and investing so much money into the program. Finally, I drew up a plan – to save X every week for this and as soon as I can afford to pay half of the price up front, I would join the next edition. Which is NOW 🙂
Wow, I thought this thread was dead, I was wrong. @shabit87, I hear you, I had the same thoughts too. But you have one thing over me, I didnt have any experience on PL that sort of thing. It is trial n error, I know a lot of people would say its my money, I want a home run, or will I make my money back. The truth is, yes you will make your money back, however if one has a dud product it would take much longer to get your investment back. Which is why I only invest 50 – 100 units to test the water. With a lot of planning I have only had one dud product which is selling 1 – 2 a day. Your research is very important not only on Amazon but on google.
So my suspicious is that once you get to that point, you might realize you don’t need additional training. And in fact, it’s usually FAR FAR FAR more valuable to actually purchase products from successful sellers and take note of what they are doing.
