Greg makes $400K/month selling on Amazon and is also the creator of the popular tool Jungle Scout, the leading Amazon product research tool online. Greg is a master of finding profitable products to sell on Amazon.
You will leave the Sellers Summit with a product to sell and potential sourcing vendors. You will also come away with all of the necessary steps to get your first sale and a road map for scaling your business
This is just further confirmation that a lot of what was/is taught in this course was not based on facts, just wishful thinking based on results the promoters had obtained for some “unique” products that don’t carry over into general categories
Now the part that everyone loves to hear and why everyone is so drawn to it is the 1000’s of success stories. With people ranging in earnings from tens of thousands to hundred thousand or some even up to a million dollars a month. Yep you read that right $100,000’s of dollars a month!! I have had some of my own success but not quite in the hundreds of thousands…yet!
Now if you spent $3K on a course, and put all your hope into one product and it’s a dud (as others have posted) you are going to feel like crap compared to if you spend a couple hundred, and now you have the money to try something else to see what happens.
Congratulations (er… Good luck) to all those who decided to ‘donate’ their hard earned cash to ASM and its affiliates bank accounts. Talk about overkill: persistence and not taking no for an answer, these salesmen must take first prize. Thankfully it will all end in a couple of hours, I hope……………until perhaps an extension to ‘help’ relieve cash from all those unfortunate victims who could not get in because of server melt-down during the last minute rush. Goodbye til the next relaunch.
No one but my team can make the claims that we can. We’ve been teaching serious entrepreneurs how to succeed selling physical products online for well over a decade with an impeccable reputation – and there’s no “upsell” – buy our course once for a few hundred bucks and you are “in for life”.
It is healthy to be skeptical going into any new program. But it appears that you are trying to tear these people down. Their online reputations and students speak volumes for themselves and rise above any personel critisizim you may have. Do your research and play nice.
Hi Todd, your honest review is a life saver. The hype I’ve come across about Amazing Selling Machine totally hides the hidden costs you’ve outlined. As a novice, the affiliate program sounds realistic.
If you have purchased or are considering purchasing ASM, please let us know in the comments below. Is there a specific ASM feature that you really like? Have you gotten your money’s worth with ASM as opposed to another drop-shipping training program? Please leave your tips, questions and advice below.
Minnie – thanks for writing. No doubt the days of just sending anything into Amazon and immediately reaping big windfalls of cash over. Now we all have to treat selling on Amazon as a ‘real business’ with the same inherent risks as any online business, BUT (unlike most other online businesses) the rewards can be high. Selling on Amazon still has far more positives than negatives, regardless of the type of sourcing done (Retail arbitrage, online arbitrage, wholesale, private label, liquidation, etc.)

3) Once I’ve had some success, then I might seek out the ASM course as something that would supplement the knowledge I’ve already built up. As Panorama said, the course added to his own knowledge and experience so it was worth it for him at that time.
My video review of Amazing Selling Machine makes it crystal-clear (repeatedly, several times) that my review is only my opinion, and I state for everyone who watches the video to make their own mind up and they don’t even ‘have to listen to me’. Some angry folks (like, 1% of all the responses) missed all that.
Amazing Selling Machine is a complete course of selling on Amazon by using Amazon Fulfillment. This means you buy items from wholesalers and then send them into FBA so Amazon takes care of the rest for you.
1- supplements are replenishable. Someone else mentioned is selling kitchen measuring spoons. You buy those once. Maybe once every few years. You replenish supplements anywhere from 14-90 days depending on what it is.

CleanTAS 281 : Response from Amazon’s Legal Team about Review Sites + New Launch Strategies with Greg Mercer When Amazon changed its policy concerning discounts given in exchange for product reviews the private label sales community exploded.

Not saying the marketing aspects are not SUPER important, but they are relatively easy and cheap to get learn and get done. Basically you just do what ASM teaches you. Most of it common sense that surprisingly few sellers understood this just 1-2 years ago.
There are ways to get around this, someone did mention it in the PAC forum sometime ago, but to me it seemed complicated. My thoughts are, this is a very good starter course, however you are not creating a brand for yourself you are selling other businesses brands.
So if you go into the make money online world with the mentality of a college student (which is – spend 4 years and 100K dollars before you make a steady income), you’re going to be pleasantly surprised with Wealthy Affiliate.
Maybe not skin but certainly time invested, Ryan. Every precious minute (no, hours) you invest in this is a victory for me. Click on the youtube button to the left and find more of my videos for you to critique, please (this is all the same topic, nothing’s changed!).

2. You are speaking from a personal point of view. I am sure there are tens of thousands of people that buy most of their products from Amazon, but there are also millions that do not. The smart buyer would research the item they want on more than one site.
We love Stephen’s podcast not only for his smart and insightful guests but also because he is one of the best interviewers in the industry. Stephen has the ability to keep the conversation going with smooth transitions and insightful questions. His natural approach to interviews and podcasts makes the listener feel like they too are part of the conversation.
ASM is not a scam. It is a great system with a huge amount of support and a very detailed course. It has all the finer details for setting up a business on Amazon. The big issue is Amazon itself. Once you get product going, the returns are fairly small for the effort one puts in. You need numerous products
Therefore, even if you are one of those people who do not end up DOING anything, you will not be ‘out’ any money. But if you DO make money with it—like all the sharp marketers are—then I would say that $4,997 is extremely cheap.
