@Wickwire – SEO is a very tough thing and just something I think they provide to help others get traction without having to pay for marketing right off the bat. Any successful business relays on advertising and not SEO.
Todd… I enjoyed reading your take on ways to make money with Amazon. I can’t say I agreed 100% with your assessment, but I did agree that for people hoping to make money on Amazon they need to be careful about throwing thousands of dollars into programs thinking they can “buy” their way into success.
We train your employees the way you want, when you want. Your company gains a fully trained staff with minimal downtime and lost productivity. You will have access to world-class instructors with both academic and practical credentials. Your employees don’t have to travel, resulting in lower training costs.
I don’t think this is a bad idea. Amazon is a unique marketplace, so you really need to understand how it works if you want to do well. Most people seem to grasp the overall dynamics of selling on Amazon pretty quickly, but I still see some people in the forums that just don’t seem to get it.
5) The badge system, meaning that after you work through the modules, there are badges that you earn for doing certain tasks. They range from setting up you seller central account, to earnings badges, and everything in between. I think that is a fantastic system for getting people motivated. I found myself feeling proud of the badges that i was accumulating, and want to add more. it’s a great incentive system.

My NET profit is margin is 52% excluding shipping fees (to amazon) product creation, FBA fees and any another fees included. You can work out the math, in my case I am making a healthy profit on a small number of units, as I increase my orders the cost of my product WILL reduce, like in any retail business, the more one buys, the cost is less.
In summary, it is possible to have a successful business on Amazon.com however it takes effort and determination. The possible payoff is big though. Think of having a successful e-commerce business in a couple of years from now. You could pick in between a consistent monthly money circulation of thousands of dollars each month or you could choose to offer your business for up to 25x your net month-to-month income. There are buyers for organizations like this on websites such as Empire Flippers.

Does anyone who has done the PAC course know whether it is worth buying the PAC course in lieu of Amazing Selling MAchine if you don’t live in The States? I want to find wholesalers in the STates whom I can send private lables to of products found on Amazon that meet the criteria-or even better, ask them to create the labels for these products. Then create a sellercentral account etc and have the products shipped there by the wholesaler. If I don’t have a U.S bank account is this a difficult thing to do?
If you don’t have a list, go out and target your ideal customers with FB ads, Instagram and other influencers. Use contests. Give away a coupon code for the opt-in. Then on the thank you page or in an email send them the code and direct them over to Amazon. DO NOT drive traffic directly to your product. Always intercept with the opt-in. If they don’t buy, that hurts your conversions on Amazon. Low conversions result in low rankings.
Format: There are five webinars and each will have a pre- or post-activity to enhance the impact of the presentation. The webinars’ content does not build on the previous webinars in the series. All of the content is independent so learners can purchase only those that meet their needs.
One of the reasons for the huge success of ASMers is that, built into the approach, is a feed system that ensures a ‘one step at a time’ process that when added up takes them a very long way. It’s part of the reason i’ve seen those, i’ve coached inside, be so successful.
Well, they did not cover critical things importing from china, labeling, brand registration etc very well, or not at all, but they found time to make videos and pdf’s on how to get boy scout type merit badges on your forum profile, what they actually did was avoid covering the difficult stuff that would have had them do a lot of work (don’t forget they were both on vacation in France when they launched this!)
Even if http://bankingreporter.com/news/amazing-selling-machine-course-evergreen-launch-2018-start-an-ecommerce-business/0045744/ was all possible and you could increase rankings by using all these tools, why are you bothering pushing up Amazon’s pages? Why not just create your own sites and rank those for product keywords? I SUSPECT that the product creators will say that it’s because Amazon has better loyalty and higher conversions. But I think the reality is that they know that you are not able to track the amount of sales that come from the SERPS>Amazon, so they can really say whatever they want.
As for the importing side of it, most people are under the false impression that it is difficult. It certainly has been a nightmare for a lot of people I have seen, who try to learn all the rules and regulations, but there is no need to do that. I teach people how to import the easy way.
Even when you are running a genuine held website therefore are offering something, it actually is still a fantastic concept to have a blog. A blog permits your prospective customers to go into direct contact with you, to be conscious exactly what you occur to be thinking, as well as to see you as greater than a business. It additionally lets you deal with customer concerns directly and to raise your company around the needs of your potential customers.
This ASM 8 is meant for experienced marketers who want to increase their income by expanding their businesses. Since it’s a high ticket program, you need to have the money to buy it & a few more dollars to invest in your first products. If you lack the experience or you’re struggling with your finances then the program is not meant for you.
I know this isn’t realistic, but what they should do is be honest about the real risks. I know we’re in the business of sales pages and conversion rates, but I really don’t like how risks are often minimized. I’d like to see an honest conversation so that people wouldn’t have to jump in not really knowing what’s on the other side of the fence.
My products are just sitting in Amazon’s warehouses collecting storage fees. They suggested that I get product reviews, meaning buy product reviews. Now Amazon is trying to police that as well. It’s pretty tough to brand a product unless you have something that’s considerable better than what exists in the Amazon marketplace or can come up with a whole new idea.
I have been listening to this podcast (eight hours a day while sitting in my cubicle at work) for weeks now. Like many people, my goal is to get out of the cubicle and live a life of freedom. Well, I had heard of this whole FBA “Private Label” business before, but as soon as I started listening to Scott’s show I has HOOKED. Never boring, always insightful, and extremely motivating. Thanks for all you do, Scott.
Q: How relevant is the information in the 2nd half of the course for someone new to Amazon vs the first half? Seeing the posts about how the level of information drops off after the refund date has me a little concerned.
You will never get this confident feeling if you ever research online programs on how to make money online – you will come across a ton of hype and promises and always have this feeling whether you should go for it or not. I have been through that many times. Even when I started with Wealthy Affiliate I was a little hesitant until I fully got involved with it.
I feel it important to note that even as we edged toward $300/day, almost all of that got reinvested into inventory when we started. When you’re growing fast (and this stuff really does pick up FAST), you have to be diligent to keep up with demand, especially if you only order 100 units to start, like we did.
Thank you so much for your insights. I have been selling just books on Amazon for some time and doing some affiliate marketing, getting exhausted with every change in Google and wanted to take another step in Amazon.
I’ve heard of the Amazing Selling Machine, but like you said, the cost of the product is a little off putting. Then again, you’re paying to learn how to build a successful business on Amazon so it makes sense.
