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.
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.
Will you be like me, who went from zero to $200k/month in a year? Or like Brian, who did even more than that per month in the same amount of time? Or one of many other ASM members who are at $25k/month, $50k/month, $100k/month, and beyond? One of our members consistently does over one million dollars per month.

The other type is “FBA” or “Fulfillment by Amazon” which means that Amazon lists your product, and when orders comes in, Amazon will ship it for you, provide customer support & even handle refunds for you. This makes it possible for you to run an efficient on-line business that you can run almost semi-automatically for a small amount of fee (FBA Fees).
If you sign up and quit, I will show up at your house and pee on your lawn. I’ll even eat asparagus before so that your whole yard smells like asparagus pee. And then your dog will eat it and fart and stink up your whole house like asparagus pee. Think I’m joking? Try me.
Earlier in this thread Jim Cockrum’s Proven Amazon Course (PAC). Price – $347.00 one time payment. was mentioned and I looked into it a little. Can anyone out there recommend if this is a good one or not or has tried it? Thanks.
My opinion is that a lot of ASMers probably just go to Alibaba and buy sleep masks and call it “Sleep Mask by JoePublic” and try to market it. As a result, there are millions of sleep masks sold by private label sellers. On the flip side, someone that is smart will look at a product that has competitors (but not too many), get the product, and then make improvements on what people don’t like.
I’ve been getting great sales of some of my products in Amazon and I have done exactly nothing, zero, narda, not even a single press release or video, just listed the product and it started selling from day 1
You will also get access to an exclusive Facebook Mastermind Group that I’ve set up, where you can interact with myself and other online entrepreneurs to get your questions answered, network with other successful Amazon sellers, and have others to hold you accountable.
2) Once I have a handle on basics, if I feel I need to learn something, head over to Jim Cockrum’s course and start with that. This will cover 80-95% of what I’d learn at ASM for a fraction of the cost allowing me to put the money I’d otherwise spend into inventory, etc.
Here is what I know…I purchased the course they came out with last year that they sold for $1k…was it worth $1k? Certainly not! I guess if you were complete newbie it would be helpful but still i think it was overpriced. It had a few gems but for the most part it was basic information most IM’ers know or know where to get it..especially for less than $1k. In addition the forum was super weak, I found it extremely difficult to find a product that you could make any margin on. Its like someone said above…its probably harder to find these “opportunities” then it is to put together and sell a high priced course.

I thought this was kinda interesting. So over and over we were all told that on October 11 at midnight this course would be closed and wouldn’t let anyone else in no exceptions. Well today October 13 I sent an email to the affiliate promoting this course to me numerous times over the past few weeks and I asked the support desk if there was any way I could still be able to purchase the ASM course and they replied back “We are happy to inform you that we will be able to allow your purchase even after the doors have closed”
Even if this was all possible and you could increase rankings by using all these tools, why are you bothering pushing up Amazon’s pages? Why not just create your own sites and rank those for product keywords? I SUSPECT that the product creators will say that it’s because Amazon has better loyalty and higher conversions. But I think the reality is that they know that you are not able to track the amount of sales that come from the SERPS>Amazon, so they can really say whatever they want.
I will say though that Rusty Moore above recommending this Amazing Selling Machine product was interesting as he doesn’t recommend much (if anything) and even told his list(which is one of the few I am on) that he isn’t going to email his list anymore as he doesn’t care for recommending IM products to people and would rather focus on his own business. He very easily could just keep recommending the latest and greatest products but doesn’t want to.
Wow! I’m shocked with the $3500 price tag. I really wanted to do this but I’m priced out. Plus I’m getting hit with a 34% cut in take home pay in about 3 weeks because of the sequestration budget battle by the clowns in Washington. With a family of 5 and a price tag of $3500 there’s no way.
And regarding your examples that you laid out, it’s always easier when we’re just speaking in hypotheticals I guess it depends on how you define your margins. Some people saying “My gross margins are 66% because I buy it for $10 and sell it for $30 on Amazon” while others will define their gross margins by 33% because they deduct the Amazon fees and transportation costs associated with selling it. The latter is more accurate in my opinion.

I just had one competitor who I am sure was doing this abandon my niche after it was obvious he was not making money. Here was a guy who had about 1000 items in stock. Just sold out recently and now has moved on to the the next niche, trying to strike it rich all over again with this ‘viral’ software.

I signed up for ASM7, and decided that with a full time job, the amount of time and effort it would involve to knock it out of the park with PL didn’t make it a practical reality for me. (Yes, I’m sure others have made it work; it just wasn’t where I was at.)
Believe it or not, I expect the choices from my buyers on this to be about 50/50! Many people love learning and doing it themselves, and getting my feedback – while OTHERS simply want it “done for them” so they can learn from that, and use it as a template going forward. Either way, this is an EPIC bonus you don’t want to miss out on!
Anyhow, I test run ASM for 30 days, I even spent $840 on inventory which is 160 items, and priced it at $14 ish more than my competitors, however my margin was only 28%, this was killing me (I wanted more money). So I decided to increase my price to $25. Now, I want to make this very clear, my competitors are pricing their products at $8 – $10.
Actually, Ryan, your single post just got me HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of ebook sales per day, and HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of new subscribers, as you can see in the screenshots below. The majority are immediate refunds, of course, as you can see, because all the info I sell is bunk.
But I still would consider Skip McGrath’s “The Complete Amazon Marketing System” for $147 dollars before forking over several thousands of dollars to an un-established program who’s owners are best know for their bussiness success via high mark ups on products.
Some updates: Since the time when you posted the above comment we’ve added numerous new modules to PAC about sourcing, http://www.thecwprov.com/story/37326182/news label, wholesale sourcing, China sourcing the RIGHT way, etc., we’ve added 30+ additional content creators, moderators and support staff from among our audience of successful Amazon sellers, and more importantly we are seeing countless success stories. I encourage everyone to simply do some research. The PAC clearly belongs in the conversation.
