Thanks for your feedback http://www.walb.com/story/37326182/news sharing your experience of working with the Amazing Selling Machine, affiliate marketing, and Skip McGrath’s programs. And one thing I always preach on this site is the importance of community support.
Let me clarify. If I’m on Amazon trying to buy a set of cookware. And I see two different brands selling the same thing. One brand is well known and selling for a lower price. Another brand is someone who is doing private labeling. His brand is unknown but the price is higher. As a consumer I will buy the cheaper product.
Please don’t make the mistake of using your credit card to run out and buy a lot of product to sell on Amazon before you learn how to pick good selling products based on seller competition, price, product ranking and other variables.

As a member of wealthy affiliate myself I can attest to its great resources and training. It does however take a long time to start earning, and in some cases, it takes over a year. Seeing that the amazon selling machine has great ways to make money fast, would you recommend this to someone who can afford this? Is the income something that can set you up with success for life, or would it only be seemingly temporary?
I’m sure the Amazon people that have succeeded & want to help others have good intent, yet I’m also pretty sure that there’s a portion of people who will realize only after taking the courses that they do not really have the funds or just don’t succeed…
This training works. But the best training in the world will not amount to anything unless you actively participate and take action. So, we’ve implemented several tested and proven features to help you get the most out of the Amazing Selling Machine 8 and to build your own incredibly successful physical products business. These features include:
4. Before starting any business, do your due diligence. This is important – I reviewed a lot of programs and settled for ASM as I have a couple of friends who are using it ‘successfully’ (5 figure dollar turnover a month with around 45% margin after less than 6 months).
And the thing that really irks me is that if you have no experience in selling on Amazon, those reports actually make your sales look a lot better than they actually are because they are the gross amount and not net of fees/product costs.
Thanks for your kind feedback on my Amazing Selling Machine Review. I also took the importing fortunes program which I found completely inept compared to the training at Wealthy Affiliate. It’s like comparing a one week high school course to a 4 year college degree.
The podcasts are pretty good, and I followed the same path you did…after listening to about 10 of them, it started getting old, I wasn’t learning anything, and so I quit listening. That said, he has a lot of good content that will get people started, and I think he tries to err on the side of caution when giving advice.
On the financial risk, well, no getting around that. The name of the game is buying and sending stuff to amazon for them to sell. So I guess that’s considered risk, but so is spending money on PPC or developing an infoproduct. There’s actually more risk there because, unlike hard assets, once you spend money on PPC…it’s GONE. At least with Amazon you can dump your products for cheap if you want to get out.
This is why I chose number 10 because it most likely people will want a company that deliver great content good believes and make them feel comfortable in order to be a part of that network to also mo…ve towards there goals and changing their life. See More
For those of you that have been around long enough, around 8 years ago Stompernet was launched with an annual membership price of close to $10K. At least with that, you were tackling something that was a little tough to navigate on your own. Sourcing products, building an e-commerce site, email marketing, analytics, testing, etc.
Outsourcing and scaling- This last module is all about scaling and outsourcing your business more. You will learn how to outsource the non-income activities so as to concentrate on profitable activities.
Lastly, I would say the now days, the whole Amazon Seller biz model is not nearly as attractive as it was several years ago. Competition has gotten incredible fierce and of course there is the inherent issues with the Amazon biz model.
