Just as an example, compare it to a course that teaches you how to invest in real estate. I think it would be hard to say that there’s no opportunity to make money, but you have to follow best practices and search out the right opportunities.
If you are still hesitant because of the price tag – here is My #1 Recommendation.

I have taken the Amazing Selling Machine courses and am not impressed. I have also read a few of the training manuals from Skip McGrath and I would recommend Skip’s system if someone is really into starting an online business in importing and drop-shipping on Amazon.
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.

Sidenote: i just caught another ASM video and they are really irritating me. They had a list of top products on Amazon and had Tweezerman tweezers as an example of a product opportunity, then went into this “thing” about how they could have had more keywords in their product description and a better description. Tweezerman is a globally known brand. Ugh. I hate that. Too many examples they give are known branded products and are selling very well partially because they are known brands. I once worked with a publicist who worked for Tweezerman. No Amazon-only seller is going to unseat Tweezerman on Amazon and would probably be sorely disappointed if they tried “Oh man, I thought I was supposed to sell a thousand tweezers a day, what happened)..Nevermind. There are just so many other factors.
The thing is, sometimes you have to try a few different products to really find a great one. Some people are very fortunate and find a swift seller really quickly, others are not. But the thing is– you typically have to try a few things.
The Facebook group I’ve just about abandoned. There is a lot of good information there, but there is a lot of really bad and blatantly false information on there too. The problem I have with the group are the individuals that act like experts in private labeling on Amazon, and give our bad/false information, just because they don’t really know what they’re talking about, but people listen to them regardless and it’s just all around bad.
What I find is that all to often certain opportunities can become misrepresented on threads by (well meaning) people posting their personal opinions and beliefs about a new opportunity rather then posting what they actually know from their experience.
I have a question. I am new to private labeling on Amazon. I basically used ASMs model (without paying for the course) and combined other Amazon knowledge I’ve gathered over the years. I have done pretty well for starting out – 4k per month.
Great video Jim, I also like to add, for people who live outside the countries of Amazon lists, you can not use your local debit card such as switzerland, Australia and new zealand to name a couple, however you can use payoneer card, however the fees are slightly pricey.
the underpinning of this whole system is being able to negotiate an even lower price at the supplier side. sure, that’s just business, but, this predatory model will soon saturate and backfire. the only reason that suppliers compromise on price is lack of customers. but as soon as there’re sufficient number of people doing this, that problem will disappear, and they will start reversing the game on the buyers – i.e. you.
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 hope this helps those that are thinking about creating an online business in affilaite marketing or importation. And friends, you don’t need the Amazing Selling Machine to make your dreams happen. Unless you have 5K dollars burning a whole in your pocket 😉
First, there are exactly zero misrepresentations on the sales page for the Proven Amazon Course and we even took the bold step to survey our entire student base and report the true average results right on the page (ever seen that before?) I can’t blame you for being skeptical b/c you are right in saying that most sales pages for IM products are a total joke, but I won’t lay down my integrity or reputation to pad the stats. The people, numbers and results are all 100% legit and we have many unreported success stories we could add to that page.
OUCH Stopped every Promotion on these two suckers around 11/2013. Now they sell around 150 units a month and in another 6 month or so my remaining Inventory will finally be gone. Had to lower the Prices drastically.
No business is ever a walk in the park, but it will likely be 10x harder for ASM3 participants than it was for ASM1 participants. A small percentage will likely make it big, but I am also guessing some (or most) participants will not make their money back this time around.
My point was that buyers should be aware that the course isn’t perfect so you can’t expect to just blindly “follow the system”. You’ve got to use good judgement and common sense. You’ve also got to be aware of all the rules because you’re responsible for everything that happens with your account.
