And for the record, I am not in the minority. sure some people are successful but there are lots more who are not. Think about it. About 10000 people bought ASM, how many are really successful? If you complain about anything on the forum or facebook page, your post is removed. That being said, you still hear horror stories on the forum and facebook page.
When all this put together – to launch this business successfully you will need around $4,000 or more. So if you add the price of ASM program and initial capital needed you are looking at at least $8,000. It is a lot. The good thing that it’s legitimate business that will work, but it really requires an initial investment.
4.) Most of the products on Amazon that I found were ranked down to 50-100 from #1 in any category on the bestsellers list that met the criteria for less that 500 reviews, so how much profit is really there? You do not know …maybe Amazing Sellers is telling you in their program about the numbers, but your going to pay for that for the program that Amazing is selling you and also everyone else is getting the same data.

Again, I don´t promote ASM (to most here I absolutely say “don´t do it”) but to me ASM2 was close to as good and clear as it could be. A great course with tons of useful material and very well structured.
In short, Amazing Selling Machine 8 enables YOU to grab your piece of the Amazon business…and that is BIG business. That’s why this is the most successful online business education program ever created.
The email issue falls into the category of nuances unique to Amazon, which is why I think most people need personal attention even if they buy the course. Of course, since that’s what I’m offering, people should be aware I’ve also got a conflict of interest when I recommend that.
Scott, I absolutely love the first three episodes. I have just started selling my own branded product on Amazon, and this podcast could not have come at a better time. Keep this train moving, I’m learning a ton!

This is the place for sellers like YOU to ask your questions and get the motivation and insight you need to get out there and make your business thrive. On this episode, 8/4/2017 Free View in iTunes
ASM may not be a proper scam but it is sold like one. What potential members are NOT told is how much $$$$ over and above the cost of the ASM course are needed in order to start a PL (or any other for that matter) biz on Amazon.

“I just like the way that everything’s done in bite-sized chunks so you can work at your own pace and focus on one thing at a time and just get that bit done… then move onto the next bit. It helps prevent feeling overwhelmed.”
Another option is, contact Sony (again as an example – please do not take this literally) directly and ask them to buy their head sets and place your own branded logo on there. Now, you can buy it for $12 a unit and sell it for $25+, because you know the quality is very good and you can market it very differently, most things Sony are not doing.
However, after thinking about this, I don’t consider this to be a downside at all. I like the fact that there is a high barrier of entry for people to sell on Amazon, as that means there will be less competition and it will be easier for people like me to get in early and take advantage of this growing trend before everyone else.
4- Supplements are often endorsed. for instance, there’s a brand Alpha Brain. I don’t know who is behind it but I’d swear it was an internet marketer (i have a few guesses). Google it. Who is gonna endorse your spatula? Nobody, right.
I already have 2 Amazon courses. One is Affiliate Cash Snipers by Michael Rasmuseen http://www.ksla.com/story/37326182/news Mike Mograbi while the other is Ama Suite by Chris Guthrie and Dave Guindon released in this forum special offers – both last year.
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.
If you have any questions I will be happy to help as this course is only on sale for a week and who knows when it will be on or if it will be for sale again. So please me a message and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
I have both courses, I bought PAC last year and I recently took a second look at the course to see what has changed. Yes he has added a few things on private label but not at the extent of ASM. The courses are two different animals, one (PAC) teaches about arbitrage (buying generic brands at low costs and selling for a higher price) this does require visiting shops, charity shops, car boot sales etc, box them up add the labels on and ship to Amazon. I consider this as a starter business, you can make money from this business, but in my opinion you can not automate the PAC business or hire scouters for your business as you run the risk of losing your worker.
I personally know Amazon and the whole private-label thing extremely well. My revenue from Amazon is well into the hundreds of thousands per month. Yet I have never invested a dime in inventory and achieve this with zero-risk. Anyways

But let’s say you’re hoping to buy bigger lots of wholesale items and really want to see what’s available through offshore countries like China. Skip McGrath offers an in-depth 350-page printed training manual called The Complete Amazon Marketing System for $127. He also throws in a bunch of free bonuses like a 30-minute coaching call and lifetime membership to his wholesale sourcing website.
I have a few friends who wanted to try out, after seeing my small success. But I told them not to join (due the expensive course fee). I am now working with them on a partnership basis on their amazon business, and it’s a win-win situation.
I am considering trying Amazon Selling Machine by Matt Clark. It looks very good from everything I have been able to find online but is quite pricey around $1000. I have seen an older post on it but nothing new.
Heck i could be wrong, maybe this is the greatest product ever made (but I swear I see that once every couple months lol) but experiencing what I got for $1k last time this is a definitely a no brainer…dont buy!
The first newsletter was ok, but the second one, not so much. I’d rather that they stick to business strategies and, like you said, how to grow a business. I don’t care for the mindset stuff so much. I’m already a member in another group for those things (mindset and self help), so i don’t need that in the ASM newsletter. Just stick to things concerning growing my Amazon business. I don’t care about anything else. So i’ll see if the next newsletter is up to snuff, and if it isn’t, I’ll probably cancel….

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.
