There are several good things about the Amazing Selling Machine system that lend to its high rating. The program is broken down thoughtfully and has easy to follow steps that make learning the system intuitive. Additionally, with all of the fulfillment being done by Amazon, you won’t need to build or host your own website or blog.
CleanTAS 236 – How to Create Custom Packaging to Increase Value for Your Products (Real Example) Once you get started doing private label sales on Amazon and other platforms you need to understand the importance of how you present your products and brand to those who are considering a purchase from you. That means packaging is a big deal. 8/1/2016 Free View in iTunes
ASM does a good job overall and I think how they present the material is probably better than other courses I’ve seen. However, in terms of content quality, the training is similar to what you can find elsewhere at a lower course.
In the sales video Matt will say that there are people in ASM that have had products they have been trying to ams login for years and their sales took off after getting ASM. That sounds great but is very misleading, these people already have a product.
@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.
There was something special about the idea of selling physical products that people would actually use and consume. I was tired of the negativity in the “make money online” world, and seeing 30% refunds on products was starting to get exhausting.
You either do a patent search or you ask for the manufacturer to show you their active license for that product. Or, you can get a license yourself from the patent holder. Some products with only a design patent can very easily be altered and produced without licensing. You can also go after products with no enforceable patents, meaning the patents are old and expired. Items like door knobs, or medicine cabinets (Things that I import personally) can be easily produced without any patent infringement. PM me if you want to know more.
Just to chime in now that this thread has popped back up, I would echo a couple comments…namely 1) It will take more money than you think to get started 2) It’s harder than you think 3) Amazon can nuke your business without notice.
I could go on and on, but i think i covered the main points that are important. As to whether i thought it was a good investment, i would say yes, i am happy with the course. There is good and bad, but that is the case with any course, but overall, it is solid. It would be BETTER if it delved more into resolving the negative stuff (like the above), but I guess you can’t be perfect.
As everyone else who got in the program, I watch each and every training video that was released. The most frustrating part of this business is how long it takes for your actual product to arrive at Amazon. For me personally, it took about 10 weeks to get my product sourced, designed, labeled and shipped to Amazon.
FBA stands for Fulfilled By Amazon. In layman’s terms, this means that you ship an item to Amazon, Amazon then puts that item on the particular product’s listing, and if someone buys the item, you get the money. But you don’t do any of the shipping – you only have to ship it once to Amazon.
Jim Cockrum the PAC Course, Coaching, and many free resources it’s all the real deal? I have learned a lot of valuable stuff that Amazon and the Amazon Forums just doesn’t have available. These are all people that truly want to help each other, it is a community of like minded people all helping each other. In a word it’s just awesome. My own success has been limited because I have a full time job commitment and a big family that needs my time, as it should be.
You will never get this confident feeling if you ever research online programs on how to make money online – you will come across a ton of hype and promises and always have this feeling whether you should go for it or not. I have been through that many times. Even when I started with Wealthy Affiliate I was a little hesitant until I fully got involved with it.
Don’t expect to be successful doing this unless you are prepared to put a lot of time and effort into it, and you really need a couple of extra $thousand to have any real chance of getting started, although some have claimed they started with less and have done well

I followed the promotional videos for the ASM a while back and at the time I remember I was quite impressed. But, they keep the price until the end and when I saw how much it was I followed no further.
That’s the only frustrating part of this business – the time it often takes your product to arrive at Amazon is usually longer than you would like it to be. You’ll be so excited to get your product, and so pumped from the training, so that eight week waiting period can be an absolute torture. It also can play a role in managing inventory (discussed later).

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.
Either way, the training is what it is. It could be better, but I wouldn’t associate myself with it if I thought it was a piece of crap (dodgy car). I do genuinely think I can help buyers improve their chances of success and I’m proud to be able to offer that.
