I first heard about ASM during the October launch. Given the price, I had to decide between buying the course or being able to launch a product. I have a decent amount of online marketing experience, but had never private labeled before. I decided to see how far I could get on my own. I used all of the free ASM information that I could find, and my product went live in January.
CleanTAS 284 : (Highlights) TAS Breakthrough LIVE – Lessons Learned – Hot Seats and How to Grow Your Business The second TAS Breakthrough LIVE event just wrapped up and the amazing conversations and ideas that happened are hard to describe after the fact. But on this episode, Scott and Chris are going to give it a shot! 11/21/2016 Free View in iTunes
5. I spent over $200,000 per retail location to open my brick and mortar stores. If this works, $3500 is nothing. Any real business you try to start is going to have some type of investment. Yes, there is also the investment of product and even though I already knew this, they recommend starting with a small number of products to test the market first, so you don’t go all in with a huge inventory of products that will take you months to sell.
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.
Ok, I looked through the Proven Amazon Course mentioned above and it does cover the FBA basics and seems good. Much of the content was done in a couple years ago. It covers a lot about selling books through Amazon FBA and the strategy of finding cheap clearance items at local Walmart/target that you buy and then sell it for more on Amazon FBA for pricing arbitrage. Both strategies involve getting your products put together, packaging, printing your own labels out and shipping everything yourself to Amazon FBA. It also involved selling lots of products at the same time through Amazon FBA. I have zero interest in selling books or boxing/labeling my own stuff so not sure now much this helped me
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.
The problem with others, is that they didn’t have the capital to compete with getting inventory and also promoting. With a product like that, you know the user is going to use more. So the seller will likely get aggressive with reducing the price to hook them on the back-end.
My point was that (based on your comments) it looks like you judged the launch process and not the opportunity. I agree there’s more than one way to skin a cat, so all the power to you if you’ve found another way. But if you haven’t found another way, and you passed on this just because the launch was “overkill”, then you’ve only done yourself a disservice by not at least judging the course itself.
This IS the real thing. No they don’t teach you everything, no they are not perfect, but between what they teach you, the methodology they make you go through and (most importantly imo) the community, there is nothing like this out there that I have encountered.
So, basically, it’s almost a zero-risk offer for Fladlien, which makes it worth very little in my opinion. Now, some of his other stuff sounded interesting, but it’s so vague you really don’t know what you’re getting.
I guess that most of them send us the same email scam: “Very good friend of mine who is great guy makes $1,00000000000 a month on Amazon, eBay, online etc. I personally use his system and never looked back bla,bla,bla….”
Module 1: You will learn about how to select your products to make sure that you guarantee success with your very first product. Product selection is the most arduous task. With the knowledge provided by ASM, the process is much more effective but it still involves a lot of work. However, if you follow the system closely, the products you select will be profitable.
The workshop will cover the use of a variety of R packages useful for the analysis of 16S rRNA amplicon data. These analysis are built around PhyloSeq data objects and extend on basic concepts in microbiome analysis such as alpha and beta diversity with inclusion of advanced material on differential abundance testing, feature selection and time-series analysis.

2. I personally HATE the tactic so many info marketers use of breaking the product down into endless modules with separate pdf’s, videos and files that you have to click and click and click to gain access to. They do this to try to make the product look like more than it is. If you string all of the pdf’s together into ONE BOOK, it wouldn’t be as long as a normal book on the shelves. And the length of the video — if you put them all together into one — would also not be that long. This info is not nearly as extensive as it’s made out to be.
I don’t honestly believe that anybody with a real business on Amazon who is raking in the kind of money suggested would spend their time putting a course together like this and give away their secrets to any tom, dick or harry who can afford it. Wouldn’t you just escalate what you’ve been doing if you’re making so much money and hope to chr!st that it’s a while before the inevitable happens and somebody else discovers your goldmine? But then again I might be completely wrong and wouldn’t mind admitting it
Yes, we get it. You have a different, cheaper course. Do you think Honda can get Porsche clients by telling them this – hey our car is more reliable and less expensive? While other courses may be good, they don’t have the support around it that this product has. It’s impressive how much value is being generated in order to gain this type of traction. If they weren’t helping others become successful, they would in turn not become successful.
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.
Well, they did not cover critical things importing from china, labeling, brand registration etc very well, or not at all, but they found time to make videos and pdf’s on how to get boy scout type merit badges on your forum profile, what they actually did was avoid covering the difficult stuff that would have had them do a lot of work (don’t forget they were both on vacation in France when they launched this!)
And again, here we have a overpriced program teaching people poorly and still earning great money. As I reviewed amazing selling machine I joined their news letter. They have the audacity to brag that they’ve sold this incompetent program to 1,000 people in one http://markets.financialcontent.com/tamarsecurities/news/read/35644596 265 : Ask Scott Session #80 – Your FBA Questions It’s time for Scott Voelker to answer your questions about Amazon Private Label sales because this is the Friday episode of the Amazing Seller Podcast.

Thanks for sharing for your opinion on this, but I totally disagree on it. All but one of my products are more expensive than my competitors, some even $20 more. Yes, some selling more than others, but that is how it is sometimes. My goal for every product I launch, is to sell 5 min a day with a 45% min profit margin, and follow the marketing information in ASM. So far it has worked.
