And i started selling on Amazon, and my ONLY inventory was from buying used books (and used CDs, DVDs, and VHS tapes and even books on tapes) at local libraries for literally ten cents to a dollar a piece. I had no car (my wife was using our only car for her housecleaning business) and thus my father in law would drive me to the 70+ libraries day after day in his van with 100,000 miles on it.
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.
Well, not too long ago Amazon finally created the technology to create what are known as “one time” coupon codes. Only one problem with that – you had to create them and hand them out manually to each customer.
2. You’d know that while some customers buy only on price, are attracted to “pile ’em high and sell ’em cheap”, and have no brand loyalty, others will pay extra for added-value. Otherwise, why are there chains of supermarkets who sell only on price and others who do a thriving trade selling value?
Amazon is the Google of physical products. The amount of opportunity is crazy; considering Matt and amazing selling machine 2017 have cracked the code and successfully make money with them is very impressive and should be a real eye opener to anyone looking to succeed with ecommerce. It’s a billion dollar industry. Businesses take investment, and time is money, so why not buy from those with a proven record versus floundering on the search engine or alibaba all night (have you tried it, it’s horrible)? Equivalent to buying someone’s autobiography – you get a man’s life work for a fee, but what you get in return is much greater and will multiply in time.

Affiliate marketing has so many advantages, as described here in this review of the Amazing Selling Machine, compared to trying to import products and sell them on your own site or through Amazon or eBay.
The first thing I noticed after joining ASM was that their private Facebook communities were like nothing I had seen before. It was like having 3,000 friends encouraging and helping you on a daily basis. Actually, you would get help in seconds! Sometimes when I had a question, I asked the Facebook ASM group and within a few moments, I would hear that familiar ping of the Facebook notification, alerting me that someone had answered the question I had asked a second ago! It was like magic. The quality of support there is overwhelming. Normally people quit programs because they have to do everything themselves and cannot expect much help from anybody.
Very good contact with the hosts. I hope this Amazon opportunity is not only for top ten talented and most creative once. The rest of us do not have to be millionaires, but I think many deserve a decent life:)
The basic idea of this program is that you find products that are already selling well on Amazon, private label them so you don’t have to compete, and use FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon) to do the rest. No need to take an order, ship it, or even take care of a refund. This sounded so simple that even one of The Three Stooges could probably do it.
The product I decided to start with has many sellers on Amazon claiming to be organic but none are certified organic. I decided to get my product certified organic in order to be the only seller on Amazon with that certification. I believe it will give me an edge over all of them and will certainly give me a great unique selling point.
It took about eight weeks to get my product sourced, designed, labeled, and shipped to Amazon. We (my buddy and I) started small and only ordered 100 units to begin (for a total investment of about $600).
