I have never taken the course.. All the knowledge I gleaned were from his podcasts and other sources (reddit, FB groups, ImportDojo, etc.) I have 2 products out and am on number 3 and hopefully 4 soon. You can absolutely do it without taking the course. With that said, I would imagine there would be rgeat value in that course still, but if I were you I’d just take advantage of all the free info that’s out there.
CleanTAS 246 : How to Get More “REAL Reviews” to Help Increase Your Sales One of the most important parts of running a successful Amazon private label business is making sure you are establishing your brand and products as high quality and reputable.

The testimonials certainly sound nice, but I know from experience that private labeling anything is not an inexpensive venture. Vitamin white labelers are a dime a dozen, and their heyday has passed (I’m not implying that that’s all they are suggesting you private label, they are just the most commonplace).
Scott, just wanted to thank for all that you do for free!!! I started listening to your podcast a little over a month and have learned more than the paid mentoring a got for $10K from a recognized millionaire which was a Scam. I wish I found you before I had paid all that $$$. Again Thank you
And there’s amazon itself, which is where the real problem is. Your store isn’t really yours; your listings aren’t yours and “your” customers aren’t your customers. In addition, Amazon can shut you down at a moment’s notice and all your hard work + inventory are now worth close to nothing. That is far too much risk for any business owner that wants to rely on their online business for steady income. Invest the same amount of money and effort into your own niche store (e.g. Shopify or BigCommerce) using a dropshipping approach
Logo design, label design and domain and hosting, you surprise me to include these as they are a ONE time fee, a part from hosting ($10 a month or less). I got my label and logo completed for $50 off fiver.
If you are making million dollars a year and someone comes to you and say, you wanna make another million dollars in your account in 30 days doing xyz. Would you say no? I know those numbers are over the top, but just to make you realise, we are all entrepreneurs. As Richard Branson once said “”Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.” meaning, If you close yourself off to new opportunities out of ignorance or fear, you might miss your next big idea or concept. When one project you start doesn’t work out, guess what – there are always plenty more to try. So get cracking!
That is SO TRUE. My brother is on his list too ….. initials are MC. He’s holding “special webinars for only his subscribers” to promote this product (tries to make everyone feel special). Him and the others promoting this only have to sell about 30 copies to pull in 100K – knowing full well that most people won’t be able to refund since it’s only 30 days and not long enough to get a real feel for it, if you’re a beginner – which is 80% of their target market.
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.
Anyway, I am in no way affiliated to Matt and Jason. Just like to point out, if you really do have a product, concept or idea that are proven to earn US$300k, how much do you think is a fair price to offer to the market?
