2. As for shipping. Courier is mostly used for samples, both for time reason and difficulty you will get yourself into to ship anything less then 1 cubic meter by sea, let alone all the custom clearence documents you need to cover. It’s simply not worthwhile to ship sample by sea, or any smaller quantity products(considerring AMS covers mostly smaller products, 1 cubic meter could be thousands).
With that in mind, there have been many many people who balked at the price, yet still got inside and have seen amazing results. And many of them are in my coaching group, which I’ll discuss in a second.

There are people who have gone full speed ahead and invested in the thousands to fulfill the course recommendations, only to find that their product is sitting in Amazon warehouses, with little to no sales. Yes, overpriced
The 2nd video (covering the ASM alternatives) makes it crystal-clear that yes, there are affiliate links in there, and although they are affiliate links, I am personally refunding folks who purchase the courses/books mentioned if the original publisher’s guarantee expires. (In other words, some courses/e-books I mention have a 30-day money back guarantee. If the buyer wants a refund on (say) day 186, and they purchased it via my affiliate link, they can contact me directly and I will refund them out of my own pocket, no questions asked (they do have to show proof they actually bought it.) No other affiliate (to my knowledge) does that. Some angry folks (like, 1% of all the responses) missed all that.
Since I’ve already purchased the ASM course, I will go through the steps and put the work in. I will have to evaluate the value of staying with the course as we get close to the 30 day mark and see if it is worth the spend for me. If so, I’ll keep with it. If not, I’ll refer to steps 1-3 above, albeit with the experience I will have learned throughout the first 20-30 days of the ASM process.

FB groups suck in general…why in the world would someone start a FB group instead of a forum anyway? There is 0 organization on the group, and so people keep asking the same questions over and over again.
As someone making a full time living doing what they teach, I thought I’d chime in. First, I need to say I haven’t bought the product and I think it’s overpriced. I watched the free videos, the webinar with Matt Carter) and read all of the comments on the free videos and see that they are doing exactly what I’ve done (without the course). They find a product that is hot, they “make their own version” (basically brand it with a logo and in my case, a trademark) and sell it for higher prices than competing “brands” through FBA (fulfillment by Amazon) allowing their fulfillment process to be automated. This DOES work and it works well. However, I make around $10,000- $15,000 profit a month, NOT $100,000 (though I only have 2 branded products and they are not in the “best sellers”- they have 5-30 that ARE in the best sellers so it IS possible.)
@Tooledyou – I answered your question you left on my YouTube video. Because you failed at something doesn’t mean it’s a rip off. Sometimes in life you do it exactly as you should and things just don’t work out. Happens all the time.
I think you’d be surprised how much you don’t know. I’d pay $4k in a heartbeat for the stuff I learned through the forums (outside of the official training). The reason the launch videos and affiliates are giving stuff away for free is because there’s still tremendous value in the stuff they don’t show.
My advice to anybody thinking of buying ASM2 is to get a cup of coffee, or 2, and read every post on this thread, from the start, get all the free pdf’s and watch all the videos in the launch, you will learn a lot, then decide if you want to spend $3500 to $4000, if yes go for it but be ready to refund before 30 days if you don’t think it was worth it, by that stage you will know about 95% of every thing you need to know to be successful selling on Amazon, private label using FBA

where are the people who bought the course, that are still putting in the hours and cranking out private label products, reaching for example 2k, 3k sales a month (haven’t “made it”, but slowly growing profits). i would think this accounts for 90% of the course’s customers, as they continue trying this course’s business model.

I joined ASM2 (after rejecting out of hand ASM1). My start-up costs were just over $1,000. Total. This included the product, shipping from China, branding and images. I have done exceedingly well on top of this.
I received a private message from this gentleman and am posting his question and answer here. I won’t answer any more questions in the thread because I am taking the thread away from it’s original intent. But if the information I provided for Sajid helps him maybe it will help others also.
All the knowledge in the world will not make you one cent if you do not take action on it. I’ve done importing and affiliate marketing, and have taken the courses with Amazing Selling Machine and read 2 of Skip McGraths training programs, and so I wanted to give my opinion on your review and suggestions.
My thought is that they would just purchase the listing from the person because they would have done most of the work and they would just take it over and market it. Not sure though, because I didn’t go through the TOS. They were the #1 affiliate again. I just looked at the leader board.
I’ve read quite a few Amazing Selling Machine reviews and one thing I find in common is that whenever there are many complaints about the program, it’s from people who probably are too new or at an unsuitable level for the complexity of an ecommerce program of this caliber. My suggestion for anyone who is considering buying ASM is to carefully study the sales page and watch the introductory videos to assess if the course is suitable for your needs and level of expertise and experience. If not, there are dozens of other options which can provide a more suitable introduction to ecommerce. But if you’re suitable for the ASM program, then the chances of your results being worth the investment are higher.

Keyword is the most objective podcast on this list. The show doesn’t promote any sort of agenda other than understanding how Amazon works and how sellers can grow their businesses. This podcast is authoritative and sounds more like an NPR story than a podcast. The attention to detail to the production is refreshing and it shows Kate’s passion toward the project. Plus, this is the only podcast on this list that has had a guest who currently works at Amazon.
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) ?
CleanTAS 296 : The NEW Open Brand Concept to Test and Launch Products Faster There are lots of ways to start selling products on Amazon.
