– And if your true intention is to simply make money online and not so important to import, give affiliate marketing a try because it has no risk. It just involves very little money, lots of hard work, and you can sell products without ever owning them. And for this training, I highly recommend the gents at Wealthy Affiliate.
The only products that have no real competition are patented and protected from “branding” by the manufacturer. A few of ASM sample “hot Items” are already patented by the manufacturer, try to make a similar design, and get sued. Look up the shaker bottle with the mesh ball and Gripmaster.
You will also get access to an exclusive Facebook Mastermind Group that I’ve set up, where you can interact with myself and other internet marketers to get your questions answered, network with other successful Amazon sellers, and have others to hold you accountable.
In the past relaunches of Amazing Selling Machine 8, the doors/carts are not open for long so if you are someone who is seriously contemplating creating a physical product business that it is worth your while to check out ASM.
I can be trained by two mentors that everyone here knows that have an AWESOME reputation, for a month of 1 on 1, side by side coaching for less than that, and I could guarantee myself to be making money within 30 days.
CleanTAS 336: PPC Sponsored Ads Training 101 – Driving Sales and Rankings Jargon and a multitude of terms can be confusing. You might feel like you are just barely treading water with all the information that come at you in the world of Amazon selling. Sometimes it can be really helpful to just pause and take a moment to sol. 3/22/2017 Free View in iTunes
I was an experienced FBA seller with sales of about $10k per month (including some private label items) and I can tell you there was incremental knowledge I picked up in ASM that has brought my business to the next level.
I currently belong to Lisa’s paid membership and have purchased a number of books from Skip McGrath including his wholesale buying guide just recently. I buy from others also and although a lot of material I get I already know and use I always seem to pick up one of two good tips that I was not familiar with and would never have known to search for them without purchasing various products.
Students also have lifetime access to the course and all updates. I also do a monthly Q&A coaching call so that students can get their specific questions answered about sourcing products for their Amazon sales channel.
I’m sure liability insurance is extremely expensive when you’re talking about selling supplements to the masses. So what if you don’t manufacture it? Haven’t you ever heard of a shotgun lawsuit that names everyone and their brother?
I know from personal experience that product owners will latch onto your success to use you as a “success story”. The success stories always have some little tidbit that is always missing that you will never know about. Examples are somebody who was already selling on amazon or they already owned a business that was perfectly suited for FBA. Still though, if the program propelled them to success then hat tip to them. But in my estimation, the bulk of the success is due to the right circumstances and the inherent ability of the student.

I have been following this thread since last year when I was interested to sell on Amazon FBA. I’m from a country in Europe which is allowed to sell on Amazon. I was wondering if someone who bought the ASM course could give me some tips how to start selling on Amazon FBA from a country outside US. Do I have to register a company in US or not? Can I buy products from China and have them sent to Amazon FBA (while I’m personally located in Europe) ?

Their knowledge, research, and actual work experiences in the business world influence and promote all aspects of our entrepreneurial program. In addition, many of our instructors are multi-lingual.
However, I did have a concern that the course is an 8 week course. Does this mean it can only be accessed as they release it? I really don’t like that. I would rather be able to see the course in its entirety and work it at my own pace.
In addition, if you balk at the price, you’re probably in the wrong game. With a price tag of about $5,000, Amazing Selling Machine may be the most expensive business training that you ever purchase. You’ll also have startup costs of about $2500 to get your product made, a label designed, etc. If a $5,000 business investment scares you, then stay out. Personally, I’ve never seen a $5,000 business produce such incredible results in such a short amount of time, and I’ve been in a lot of business (heck, the restaurant I owned cost me $225,000 and I’m yet to make a dime from it… and my college degree cost me $80,000 and I don’t even know where it is).
Thx for reply, the same problems in your scenario exist, I use silicone spatulas since thats a “freebie” example by the ASM course. Cherry picking the best products is already done, look at the top selling products and look how many people are selling them. Now look at the similar branded products also pretty fairly saturated, now look at the price of the knockoff. Much less than the initial item which has already developed a huge following.
CleanTAS 294 : How to Use the NEW Enhanced Content Features and WHY You Should One of the frustrations about selling products on Amazon is that the platform is changing all the time. But one of the GREAT things about it is that things are changing all the time, too! Every now and then a change is made to the terms of service or t. 12/14/2016 Free View in iTunes
I can’t say I’m not a little nervous dropping such a big chunk on a training program. I am used to buying $10 and $20 WSO’s. But I also know that with most programs, people aren’t successful because they didn’t fully apply themselves or didn’t stick with it long enough, if the training program wasn’t junk. If they said it would take 60 days or longer to start selling product daily, I would never have purchased it knowing I would be outside of the refund period before I knew if it was successful. And as I mentioned earlier, if it works which it certainly makes sense to me that it will, $3500 is a drop in the bucket.
Given that we are private labeling products, there is a chance that those products that you try to PL are already owned by someone else. They legally own the product and no one is allowed to sell it but that owner, but it won’t necessarily show in the resource that they give you (a website that will tell you if there are patents on products). This was brought up numerous times in the discussion forums and such, and in the end, the answer by ASM was, in order to truly find out, you will need to contact an attorney that can look it up for you. And the cost isn’t cheap, i’ll just say that straight up. In the thousands. An ASM member found that out the hard way after he was selling product and got a letter from the owner saying that he is infringing on the product and would need to cease selling it. The ASM member just bought a very large amount of inventory, and now has to scrap it. Money down the toilet. And as bad as that was for this member, i later found out that it could’ve been much worse. People who infringe on others products could pay as much as 3 times earnings (earnings of whatever you made on the product over a certain period of time). And given that the member said that they bought alot of inventory, i assume that they made decent money on the product (or else why buy alot), so as bad as it was for them, it could’ve been MUCH worse…
The business model of a big brand store revolves around finding products that people buy, sending them to individual branches, and selling the items. If the sales volume for a branch is incorrectly estimated and there is no room for the excess, it gets discounted.
Commercial photo quality label printers can be had for $1000 bucks now. Label your own stuff. Gives you flexibility on all kinds of print on demand labels for various products to avoid label setup charges and having to invest in label inventory. When a product volume gets established to hit MOQs, you can then go to pre printed labels and a manufacturer will take you on.
I did find it http://thinkbusinesstoday.com/news/amazing-selling-machine-course-evergreen-launch-2018-start-an-ecommerce-business/0045744/ that Amazon Selling Machine didn’t have any testimonials and results shown from their “Beta” testers ? (They said it was legal stuff but any product owner can just have the standard disclaimers to take care of that like “These results are not guaranteed and are not typical” and show testimonials of their success stories.) The price is certainly steep but I guess people pay those numbers easily for high level mentoring and masterminds so if the quality of people in it are high then there is value there. I guess the big question if if it really is “exclusive” and won’t reopen again.
