It’s not condescending to say that I don’t recommend a training program. I simply said that doing it (on a small scale) will teach you more than a training course will ever do. And the funny thing is that once you’ve actually done it, you’ll realize that most training programs are pretty rudimentary.
On top of all the small ASM sellers you have some medium sized and big sellers with serious resources who are also learning to do things the ASM way (again, it is a good way but it is hardly a secret anymore). An extra challenge to compete with sellers who don´t care if they drop $10k just to make a statement and have your product drop 90% of its sales.
How would you like to get what would be equal to about $782/yr in fees for free? And more importantly, set it up before you get customers so that way you never lose all the money you can make with an Amazon customer after they make their first purchase!
– I should have shopped around for my affiliate. However, I should learn something about marketing and traffic through the one I went through. Will know to do so next time some big course like this comes along.

It’s simple. The name of the game is spending as little time as possible sourcing and shipping products – with this guide and Amazon FBA, you can spend just a few hours per week and supplement your income nicely. Some people (after getting it down to a science) have even quit their main jobs to do this – it’s sort of like being a merchant in the middle ages. You’re not creating anything yourself, but you’re giving the people what they need, and you’re rewarded financially for doing so.
Note: This bonus will be made available to you when Module 4 is released and will be delivered via our ASM Masters members area, which you will receive access to via email within 72 hours of your purchase. You will be able to download and process up to 500 transactions per month with ManageByStats and send up to 2,000 messages per month with SellerMail. Additional transactions and/or messages will require a paid subscription plan.
To summarize, the Amazing Selling Machine is the best training course that I have ever experienced. This is coming from someone that has invested nearly $100,000 in coaching, seminars and online programs. I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone that wants to get into selling on Amazon and is committed to it. Obviously, this is only for people that are committed and willing to invest in themselves and starting their own online business. Every business requires an investment and when put in perspective of what a http://www.kfvs12.com/story/37326182/news education costs, this is easily worth every penny.
Module 4: You will learn how to build your brand. The evolution of ecommerce now gears toward building a brand. The reason is you can create raving fans who are ready to buy your next product on the subsequent launch. ASM course is very forward thinking. Not only does it set you up for success with your first product but also with subsequent products as you grow your business.
Mike created ColorIt.com and grew it into a 7 figure business in 4 months. He’s owned a variety of other ecommerce stores including IceWraps.com and CuttingBoard.com and runs an awesome podcast over at EcomCrew.com
I’ve noticed a couple members who are like Scott’s white nights…people, he’s just some random internet marketer that talks about FBA. And now, guess what, he’s got a program to sell now. Not hating though, because he’s just riding the train while he can and his info is solid.
And, although I will always do eBay because it’s an awesome source of buyer traffic, (especially for high-demand products, which 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)
2. It makes sense to me. I own two brick and mortar businesses in two small towns in Florida, not major cities. Our primary business is personal services but we also sell about $15,000 a month in retail products combined between the two locations. If I am targeting the entire U.S. with my product line instead of two small cities and my current client base, it makes sense that I should be able to make at least twice that per month and not have to pay the overhead I have to pay with my locations such as employee wages, rent, utilities, etc. It will be almost all profit.
“Bought PPL yesterday and we are super excited about it. Just to let everyone know how much faith we have in Jim Cockrum & Tom Freeman, just yesterday we canceled our Amazing Selling Machine program while we we still in the 30 refund period. I can assure you, we would not have done this if we were not 110% confident in Jim & Tom. We are looking forward to getting to know you all and when we need advise or a hand with something as we progress through this, being able to have a real support team to help us with things, when we need it…But what I can tell you right away and is one of the main reasons we did make the change was, having training from Jim & Tom on creating multiple channels to sell your same private label product via, Amazon, EBay, your own ECommerce site. As well as the other ways that Tom mentioned in the intro video. Amazing Selling Machines is primarily focused solely on selling your product on Amazon. As Tom illustrates in the chart in his intro video, by using multiple marketing channels to sell your products it will seriously explode your sales volume VS just focusing on one channel, hope that helps.”
If you have some money to waste, then maybe buy ASM and check it out. Personally, I STILL believe that you’re better off just starting off by selling SOMETHING in your house and then build your way up from there. I think the people that are successful with FBA would have been successful anyways; once they put their money to selling on FBA that is.
Some affiliates have even reported being promised up to 50% commission on their ASM sales, or about $2K. With such high profits and profit margins promised to would-be affiliates, it’s easy to understand why ASM has taken off as quickly as it has. One need only perform a quick search on Google to find reams of affiliate marketing websites touting the benefits of this program.
No, I’m not in this course. I just wanted to hear your thoughts about this so I could make a judgment on whether I missed something or not. It seems like it’s possible to achieve some success even without this course.
Here’s a question….when private labeling products what steps are taken to ensure you are not infringing on existing design patents, trademarks, etc? Just because I find a product some overseas supplier has I think would be good to private label doesn’t mean the product isn’t already patented in the US. Does ASM cover this?
I do have experience selling on Amazon, and I’ve done well with ASM, but I’m not sure if I could have done a much better job training 1,500+ members than they did. There are so many small decisions that have to be made along the way, so there’s no way they could have covered everything in the course, and it would have also been impossible for them to provide every member with personal attention.
Steve and his wife were unhappy with their 9-5 jobs and with the discovery of an impending child they made an unconventional move. His wife quit her job, and they started a successful online store: Bumblebee Linens. Like most businesses it started slowly, but their gamble paid off and they were able to fully replace his wife’s $100K salary. Steve now runs a website and this podcast to help others who would like to follow in his family’s footsteps.
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.
Negative reviews are at the top of some of the worst things that can happen to an Amazon seller. So what recourse do you have? Should you respond to the negative reviews? Abandon the listing and start a new one? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott walks through several ways sellers like you can deal with negative reviews left on your product listing. One thought that Scott shares is to consider offering a new and improved product that resolves the reviewer’s issues free of charge as a response to the review that they left.

On the financial risk, well, no getting around that. The name of the game is buying and sending stuff to amazon for them to sell. So I guess that’s considered risk, but so is spending money on PPC or developing an infoproduct. There’s actually more risk there because, unlike hard assets, once you spend money on PPC…it’s GONE. At least with Amazon you can dump your products for cheap if you want to get out.
Note: This is not to say that anyone is bad. But when I recommend something as little as a $2 cup of coffee, I do so after I’ve tried and only when I absolutely love it. Don’t you? The same promoters will ironically sell you on “reputation management” next week!
Of course it doesn’t effect me, but it does effect those who you are coaching. You’re putting your service out there to the public in a Review forum, so I’m just asking the questions that anyone doing their due diligence should be asking.
