I have some stuff that I would share here and there with people, but I have a handful of tips/tricks that I would never give away for any amount of money. Even if I collected a large sum of money upfront, it wouldn’t be worth it if the tactics became more common knowledge.
If you want to start selling on amazon, taking Amazing selling machine course will help you to achieve your goal without wasting a lot of time.You can read more about Amazing selling machine and see the PROOF of earning of the students here: Amazing Selling Machine 8 Review 2017: ASM8 Re-open & Huge Bonus
@Bill Cameron, The link ebook about import from China that is displayed in that post #734 is a link to a thread in this Internet Marketing Product Reviews and Ratings forum, but it has been deleted because it was deemed to be “too self promotional”.
As they are laughing all the way to the bank long after your 30 days refund window is over, you are working hard to apply the program and build a business. Whether you succeed or not is not important, as they already have their money.
I spoke to Skip McGrath a couple of weeks ago. He told me that Amazing Selling Machine tried to get him to be an affiliate for them, they sent their tapes to him for review and tried to entice him with the big commissions. He declined them because he was giving the same information the the Amazing Selling Machine was, but for around $4,800 less.
Like you if I had any advice for someone starting a business online, it would be to start an affiliate marketing business. The start up costs are almost negligible and if you work hard the income will come.
I am so glad that I invested in ASM. This is the most solid, profitable business you can find in 2017. The sky is the limit: this is the way I feel right now. To tell you the truth, I even quit my day job because I am making more online – and I was doing pretty well at my old job. I now have the freedom that I always wanted, and I spend more time with the people I care about. I cannot even describe this feeling of freedom!
Suggesting that the course was priced at $4000 in order to weed out inexperianced people is just plain silly, with all due respect, I’ve come across a lot of really very naive and inexperianced people who bought ASM, so that obviously did not work
Amazon Commission is 15% of the sales price, but FBA fees are an additional cost. It’s a minimum of about $2.50 per order, but can be higher depending on a couple of factors. On a $25 item, that’s another 10% in fees.
When you set-up your PPC campaign, use the auto-campaign feature. It will send you traffic for certain keywords. Spend about $25 per day and let it run for 7 days. Pull the report. It will show you all the keywords Amazon used to send you traffic. You will see how many impressions, clicks and sales you receives. You can see the actually keywords people typed to find your listing. Take the high performing keywords and plug them back into your listing. Optimize it. You get so much data even if you don’t sell. If that’s the case go back. It may be a conversion issue with your copy, bad images or the price.
So are there any steps one can take to research this before they go through the trouble of sourcing and labeling the product? I know you check patents through USPTO, but it’s not very user friendly, and I’m not sure if you can find design patents. Just curious if there was another way to be prepared? Can an IP lawyer check a product out for you for a reasonable fee?
So, the question you need to ask is: Are you willingly to pay such an amount to being part of a private community (or maybe 2, including the affiliate private group)? If the answer is yes, then sign up. But if you want to work and explore this business on your own, it’s still possible.
Amazon is different than eBay and you will be dealing with a different class of buyers. Learn all you can before making expensive product purchases. Many Amazon sellers start out with stuff from their own home or with books because they can be purchased for pennies and sold at very good markups. Amazon can be started very easily and inexpensively.
You sell it, we ship it. Amazon has created one of the most advanced fulfillment networks in the world, and your business can benefit from our expertise. With Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), you store your products in Amazon’s fulfillment centers, and we pick, pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products. Best of all, FBA can help you scale your business and reach more customers.
Ryan, my net profits are 5k in 5 months. As it continues to grow I have a projection of $17.5k-$35k by next May for profits. My product was not banned I answered this above. I have two other successful businesses online selling information products since 2008.
The ASM community is priceless. It’s like being part of the biggest, most focused, mastermind group ever. And the contributions are outstanding. People genuinely, and fully, sharing their amazon experiments, performance and experiences so that other may learn. These then get built upon by others, taking the whole thing to new heights of learning and results.
You showed a picture of 3 figures totaling $512K, what were the expenses, what were the advertising fees, etc. When you point out facts like I do here on Learn To Grow Wealth Online, you want to include all the pieces of the puzzle to allow the readers to come to an informed decision.
2) Matt and Jason aren’t as active as i would like them to be. They essentially show up every once in a while, which kind of annoys me, but i guess they have other things to do. Within the 30 day period is when I saw them most, but I guess that’s how it goes
An example to overstate things. We do things the ASM-way from a marketing perspective, but we also spent $160k on producing one of our recent products. By that we eliminate possible competition from most other ASM-type sellers who basically only rely on excellent marketing.
But personally, I have never seen a business with as much staying power that is so simple as the businesses that I built within Amazing Selling Machine. I am so excited by it that it keeps me up at night.
I agree with you somewhat here. There will always be people who do well and the amazing seller who don’t. Just like any business, some people will fail. Anyone who is thinking about buying ASM because they think it’s the once in a lifetime opportunity to buy a winning lotto ticket shouldn’t buy this. It’s a business. It takes work and success isn’t guaranteed.

So, let’s assume a 40% margin. $300k in profit means $750,000 per month in gross sales ($9M/year). That’s $25,000 per day. With those kind of numbers, I also doubt he’s selling something for $9.99, so if you assume it’s in the $25 – $40 range, that means he’s selling 625 – 1,000 units per day.
There was a software that came out in a WSO not too long ago that brought up a list of the bestseller products (products with high BSR’s) as well as the reviews. Basically Jason Fladlien and Wilson Mattos used it for one of there bonuses i believe (gave everyone a spreadsheet with the list).
Anyhow, I test run ASM for 30 days, I even spent $840 on inventory which is 160 items, and priced it at $14 ish more than my competitors, however my margin was only 28%, this was killing me (I wanted more money). So I decided to increase my price to $25. Now, I want to make this very clear, my competitors are pricing their products at $8 – $10.

I didn’t buy Amazon Selling Machine but it seems the Amazon Selling machine product is more about removing yourself as much as you can from the process such as focusing on the “Advanced” FBA concepts of using suppliers that ship/label for you and send to the Amazon FBA warehouse.
Plus, when you register for an Amazon.com seller account, you can sell on Amazon’s marketplaces in Canada and Mexico. If you also enable FBA for products you list on Amazon.ca and Amazon.com.mx, you can reach even more customers across North America who love Amazon’s trusted fast, FREE Shipping.
2) Yes, people are absolutely having success importing from China. I source mine from the US, but it’s not easy to find a product that works. Importing from the US is definitely simpler if you can get it done, but I wouldn’t be afraid to source from China. I’ve seen a couple of stories about people getting screwed, but not many. There are certain things you can do to make sure you’re working with a reputable supplier and minimize your risks. From what I can tell on the forums, people seem to have had pretty good experiences.
Man what a bummer. I really hate to see people in your situation because it reminds me of what I have gone through to attain success online and I’d feel so disappointed after putting in that kind of effort with this kind of outcome.
FYI … If you have not personally gone through a course or read a book, nobody cares what you think about the content, price, or anything else. We don’t want to waste our time reading opinions from people that have all the answers and no money.
