CleanTAS 221 : How to Use Amazon’s Tools to Launch and Rank Products (Live at Seller’s Summit) Today’s episode is a bit unusual for the Amazing Seller podcast because it’s a recording of a live event where Scott was asked to speak about using Amazon’s tools to launch and rank products.

In a nutshell, ASM teaches its members how to successfully drop-ship items via Amazon. That’s it. This revenue model is not exactly new; in fact, I mentioned online drop-shipping as a semi-viable work-at-home opportunity two years ago.

– There are a few people in the thread who need to take a step back and not get so offended. The thread is here to give people an idea of whether or not the course is right for them. There’s a lot of great material in here, but also a ton of stuff that has no value and is more pissing match than informative.
There comes a time peter when you have to commit following a course through and making it work instead of discarding it after 5 mins. those like i said that get refunds on things are generally non action takers and who more often than not are always looking for that shiny object and push button millionaire. im sorry to say but making money takes a lot of hard work. so i always go by this saying.
I see you decided not to answer my question about where most of your income comes from…selling on Amazon or as a Marketer, but based on information you’ve posted publicly, I’m guessing you make more money as a Marketer these days.
And, although I will always do eBay because it’s an awesome source of buyer traffic, (especially for high-demand products, amazing selling machine cost is my niche) this Amazon FBA thing is a whole ‘nother animal that allows for scaling your business FAST. (like nothing I’ve seen so far)
I guess that most of them send us the same email scam: “Very good friend of mine who is great guy makes $1,00000000000 a month on Amazon, eBay, online etc. I personally use his system and never looked back bla,bla,bla….”
ASMers say stuff like “Oh, Amazon is growing faster than we are so no problems with competition.” But let’s be honest, ASM is filled with 98% of the people that have had no success at all (just like any IM course). Another successful 1% probably aren’t active in the forums. And then the final successful 1% will probably give you good general advice, but they aren’t spilling what really has worked well for them. Why would they?

When we started selling on Amazon, there was one big problem. On one hand, using discount coupons in a specific way could shoot you up to the top of Amazon search results and translate into tens of thousands or more dollars.
Here’s the point: Just because a product is discounted somewhere online or at a particular big brand store doesn’t mean that it’s a bad product overall – it just means that one particular branch of a big brand store didn’t sell that much of one particular item during one particular time frame.
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.
i think its as comprehensive a you will get in a course on amazon. If you know of others that covers the same amount of information and has software that helps in your promotions and email system then please do mention it i would be happy to have others compare whats on offer
Guys seriously, I know alot of people using ASM and they are taking home money to the bank and the funny thing is that they are all doing supplements and source easily from the USA. so while others spend months dealing with china and products, these guys get their pills within a few weeks get them up and focus on marketing. It is the secret that nobody is telling you.

I find it very enjoyable when people (or certain person) lays into either FBA or ASM methods. All I can say is, yes ask for a refund, your not needed. While most of us who are making over $100k a month all the way to the bank, I am not hear to brang. Just find it laughable someone wants to call it a scam. Maybe we should call you a scam for not putting in the effort and not sticking with something more than a month, sigh- What a joker.. For really, go find a push button program. If it didnt work for you, fine. That is understandable, but throwing the word/phrase (scam/its a scam) JOKER!
I am wondering what the real business model is behind ASM. I’ve been bombarded with ASM promotion mails recently (maybe because I’m a very modest FBA seller). One of those pluggers was bragging that he had 100+ subscribers to his last group.(prerequisite:you have to subscribe to ASM first). And after some searching it appeared that he got “a couple of $” for every subscription. After a bit more searching, it appeared that these “couple of $” were actually 50%. So at $4000 for the course, that makes $2000 a pop and $200.000 for his first batch of subscribers.
I’ve been looking to get into a business model that is focused in the online world for location independence and is ripe for automation after doing the work on the front end to get things set up. This seemed to hit all the right buttons so I went ahead an signed up after a brief review to make sure that the 30-day refund looked legitimate. It wasn’t until after joining up that I spent the time going through this entire thread.
I am not an expert, but I do a lot of testing to know all the methods you and I have mentioned, DO in fact work. However it depends on the service one uses. I would not use a $7 WSO PR service. HOWEVER, I would use a $7 backlinking service to my Amazon page.
During Module 2 of the Amazing Selling Machine, you will be instructed to come up with a list of at least 10 Amazon product ideas. You will then be required to narrow it down to 3 of the very best ones. As part of this bonus, you will be able to e-mail me your list of ideas (up to 10) and I will give you my honest feedback and suggestions on the niches that you’ve selected and advise you on what product I think would be the most profitable for you.
Have heard reviews of this system But to be fair there is a warrior member who has a ebook on amazon that has 5 times cheaper which has worked for me…I dont make 50k from amazon but on a good month a few 100 from sales of book sales, Think his name was Colin and it was the kindle lazer course, Would reccomend that then some system.

They could have priced it at half of the price, sold more units and likely still made a bundle… maybe close to what they’ll make now considering that they would have still had affiliates running over each other at the chance to make a grand per sale… and more people could afford it.

@Titan86 – That is would not be true. Amazon is a global business and there is 7 billion people living on planet. Amazon.com is only for the (US) market. It is the largest, but China’s economy is growing very fast is on the verge of becoming the largest economy.

CleanTAS 215 : 5 Reasons to Reconsider Having 2 or More Amazon Seller’s Accounts (Pros and Cons) It makes sense that when your Amazon business is up and running well, you may want to add a totally different brand or niche to your overall business strategy. There are so many opportunities that kind of approach can provide. 6/13/2016 Free View in iTunes
Realistically though, there probably aren’t that many people that are “making it” because there aren’t that many people that succeed (on a % basis) with any program. Private labeling products isn’t something that you can really bootstrap very easily. When I import from China, I’m spending about $40-50K per container. You have to be able to float the cash for a minimum 60-90 days before you start to see the payback.
