So, since you’ve already learned how to sell – the next secret is buying for the right price which will enhance your margins. If you buy for the right price – you have a very small chance of getting stuck. For example, if you are buying your own product for $10 landed and selling it for $24.95, then if all else fails and demand dries up or competition jumps in – you can always drop down to $15 sales price and still recoup everything after all costs.

Scott, thanks for doing this podcast. Anytime I’m feeling overwhelmed about something in this journey, I consistently find an episode that resolves that issue. Scott and his guests seem like normal/relatable people that are chasing the dream.
Welcome to part two of this episode of The Amazing Seller podcast featuring Scott’s conversation with ecommerce seller Mike Jackness! On this episode, you’ll hear Scott and Mike talk about setting the right price point, how to sell a product you’ve already given away, why there is still room for sellers like you on Amazon, product research tips ……
I think if you are just starting out and if you want to get a good start you will need to spend a few hundred dollars on good solid Amazon training courses, join a few good free forums. One of the best in my opinion is the FBA forum on Yahoo groups.

Account cancelled for months, inventory sitting in the warehouse. You have to be able to deal with the unexpected whenever you’re in an inventory based business/

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.
After you’ve gone through all the steps to research, source, and list your product, now it’s time to launch it and start driving sales. What is your launch strategy? How can you put your brand in the best position to succeed once you’ve gone live? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you’ll hear from Scott and Chris as they go over this final ……
This is a comprehensive, but concise guide to getting started with selling Private Label products on Amazon. Easy to follow and understand, Scott Voelker lays a solid foundation for launching your own Amazon business.
I had been meaning to unsub from a lot of lists and I will give this course credit for one thing…it has given me the kick in the pants needed to do so. I have unsubbed from everyone who mailed for this and let them know why. I would have thought that one of them would have at least offered a reach-around as a bonus.
As with every business, there are a million different unexpected things that can and will happen. You will always make some mistakes and more importantly there will be always be the very common “this makes absolutely no sense” amazon-issues, dirty play from competitors, idiot buyers, IP laws, liability issues, shipping problems, quality problems, dishonest suppliers, problems with outsourced labor, complicated taxes etc. etc.
I knew I was in the wrong place with Amazon Associates as it just seems to be too much time and effort for little reward for me, but FBA was out of my comfort zone so I never jumped in eventhough I bought what is now ASM6 3 years ago! I need to speak with you privately about how you did this! Can you send me a PM please?
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!)

I would shy away from the product you mentioned. It sounds like it is difficult to ship, very fragile with a high potential for damage (hence customer complaints in the form of bad reviews) and there is no demand for it.
I think that’s a good summary and, personally, I’ve followed more of a style similar to the ASM approach. I think the content within ASM will probably be very good, but I’m not a fan of the extra “margin adders” that are thrown into these packages; notably the seminar and tools. Those things just unnecessarily pump the prices and probably provide little value.
The main secret of ASM is called: “ASM Criteria“. This is where I got categories of products that do really well on Amazon. Also categories to completely avoid and even actual products to completely stay away from. For Example you don’t want to get involved with textiles or glass products for your 1st product. Also not to pick any products heavier than 3 lbs etc..
CleanTAS 318: How to Use Email Marketing to Sell Your Products without Being a JERK with Ryan Lee What comes to mind when you think of marketing? Do you think of flashy advertisements on TV, in the mail, or maybe even popups? It seems that “Marketing” is a dirty word in today’s business climate.

If someone is barely making rent or barely able to buy groceries, do not go with the Amazing Selling Machine. You’re looking at 5K on this overpriced program, then another, at the minimum, 5K in importation and marketing fees. And you could easily spend up to $20,000 dollars and still not have a super profitable importation business.
A couple of things you mentioned caught my eye which was and I quote “My books are constantly in the top 10 in their niche, but it just doesn’t translate into big bucks.” This is one of your main problems, you stayed with a low return business module. I am aware of the course last year which was based on many methods (private labeling, wholesale, kindle ect), and M&J highlighted kindle is a great business, however the return is poor compared to private labeling.

But it was SO simple, that I kept saying to Matt: “Hey man, so what’s the secret to getting things off the ground?” And he kept answering, “I don’t have any secrets dude. Just create a good product and connect it with customers that want it. Amazon will handle the rest.”
