You’re going to love how much more “hands off” money this will make you. Most sellers lose hundreds of thousands of dollars before they decide to get around to buying tools like SellerMail & ManageByStats.
What this means is that, if you buy the program and buy inventory, market it, and do not make money following their methods, ASM will refund you the full cost of the program and they will reimburse you for any money you spent on inventory, up to $10,000.
The example that you outlined above would not just be rare, it’d be EXTREMELY rare and unlikely. 625-1000 units a day of a product that he’s making 40% net margins on? I have to assume that he’s selling a “generic” type product and it’s not proprietary. And if that’s the case, anything that is generating those kind of sales is easily the type of product that would attract imitators.
That being said, I’m not just trying to attract affiliate sales with this post. I’m actually finding it more difficult to recommend the course unconditionally with ASM 5. It’s still great training that provides a lot of value, but a few other good private label courses have been released since the last launch in October. I’d still consider ASM to probably be the best one out there, but it comes at a significant premium relative to the alternatives. For people who can afford the high price tag, it’s still the way to go, but it’s definitely a tougher call now that there are new options that cost thousands of dollars less.
In the United States, Amazon has grown into the #1 on-line retailer. It’s revenue has grown exponentially in the last few years (they’d about $88 Billion in sales in 2014 with about 20% growth year over year).
And i started selling on Amazon, and my ONLY inventory was from buying used books (and used CDs, DVDs, and VHS tapes and even books on tapes) at local libraries for literally ten cents to a dollar a piece. I had no car (my wife was using our only car for her housecleaning business) and thus my father in law would drive me to the 70+ libraries day after day in his van with 100,000 miles on it.
CleanTAS 226 : Ask Scott Session #67 – Your Amazon FBA Questions It’s time for Scott’s favorite part of the week, the episode where he gets to answer your Amazon private label questions on the show. Today’s episode is filled with questions from real Amazon sellers who are in the trenches, 7/8/2016 Free View in iTunes
YES! The first one skipped over FBA which was vital to really making Amazon work. This one goes into private labeling, which just makes them seem like they intentionally hold back good stuff because how could they have launched that course last year and NOT have gone into detail about FBA or private labeling? It’s not like that just NOW became a competitive advantage.
To answer your question, I just don’t think that press releases or video would really move the needle in any meaningful way. I agree with the core strategy of ASM, but there is a lot of window dressing in order to puff up the price. I don’t know about you, but I just haven’t gone from Video>Product or Press Release>Product during my shopping experiences. There are a lot of strategies within Amazon to boost sales that will yield better results. Maybe they talk about those things, but I kinda doubt it based on what I hear. So getting training on press releases is kinda silly in my view.
I learned how to import successfully through my own self education and I have a few friends that have created extremely successful importation businesses on their own, and the bottom line is that what ASM is selling isn’t bad information, it’s just info that you can get for about 96% less than you can get with the Amazing Selling Machine program.
And there is just so much documentation on how to do those specific things! I just can’t believe a newbie would drop $3500 on a product when they haven’t attempted to find their own way. You’ll learn so much more if you just go in that direction yourself. I don’t believe for a second that you can actually be open/honest with the community members at ASM because they are your direct competitors.
