5. I have already used some of the methods that they taught in the initial videos that were free to everyone to identify amazon marketplace payments amazon.com/bill wa opportunities. I used a method that someone else taught me to see how much of that product is being sold daily. If I did half the volume that these products are doing, I will make back the investment in this course within 1 month.
All the steps from starting your new business to sourcing your own products and private labeling are covered. You will even learn how to create high converting listing pages on Amazon that will turn your clicks into customers.
There is always going to be competition, but the way that you separate yourself is by your marketing efforts after the fact. At first you’re competing on price, then you emerge as the brand to beat. Sure, there are a lot of products that just wouldn’t work, but I don’t think it’s as difficult as you’re stating. But I won’t try to sway you otherwise.

I pretty much agree with this if what you say about them having all their members data etc is correct. I don’t blame anybody for buying this course though as it sounds ok but peronally I would no way spend that kind of money on what really sounds like a lot of hype.
I am not an expert, but I do a lot of testing to know all the methods you and I have mentioned, DO in fact work. However it depends on the service one uses. I would not use a $7 WSO PR service. HOWEVER, I would use a $7 backlinking service to my Amazon page.

I have been having a lot of trouble listening to the podcasts though. Maybe I grew up in this subreddit and the info is more for people about to start?. I’ve been trying hard and I seem to not have the patience. I’m afraid I’m missing out on stuff there.
CleanTAS 293 (Avoiding Lawsuits) Product Liability Insurance 101 and Best Practices One of the things Amazon sellers can easily overlook is the issue of liability. Is your product safe? Should it include a choking warning? Is there a risk that you could be sued or that your product could be held liable for harm done to a person or the. 12/12/2016 Free View in iTunes
I’ve coached hundreds of people through ASM (more-so when it offered a clearer advantage), and I’ve also pointed plenty of people towards other less expensive courses. There’s no single option that will be right for everyone, so it’s important to understand where the value lies and make an educated decision about what’s right for you.
If you are making million dollars a year and someone comes to you and say, you wanna make another million dollars in your account in 30 days doing xyz. Would you say no? I know those numbers are over the top, but just to make you realise, we are all entrepreneurs. As Richard Branson once said “”Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.” meaning, If you close yourself off to new opportunities out of ignorance or fear, you might miss your next big idea or concept. When one project you start doesn’t work out, guess what – there are always plenty more to try. So get cracking!

On top of all the small ASM sellers you have some medium sized and big sellers with serious resources who are also learning to do things the ASM way (again, it is a good way but it is hardly a secret anymore). An extra challenge to compete with sellers who don´t care if they drop $10k just to make a statement and have your product drop 90% of its sales.
I have to agree with the quality of Jim’s PAC course…he’s literally one of only four internet marketers that don’t spam by inbox with useless offers of the day, etc. Information actually worth reading (so far).

In order to control your destiny, you’ll need a proprietary product – that is what these courses are trying to teach…find a market and make a private label product, do better marketing and you will sell…
2) Tips from other people in the community. When I first heard M&J say that they learned a lot from members of the predecessor course (Amazing Money Machine), I thought that was just marketing BS. This has honestly been invaluable though.
A place filled with people who have BUILT this business from scratch and gone on to produce millions of dollars in sales… all EAGER to HELP YOU follow in their same path… so you can achieve the freedom THEY have?

And you’ll learn how you can AUTOMATE this entire business using Amazon’s resources.
Scott, thanks for doing this podcast. Anytime I’m feeling overwhelmed about something in this journey, I consistently find an episode that resolves that issue. Scott and his guests seem like normal/relatable people that are chasing the dream.
I only do private labeling. I am sure there are many ways to make money on Amazon as well as some other fine courses as mentioned throughout this thread using other methods. However private labeling is the focus of this course.
Domestic shipping is pretty straightforward, and that is what they teach. Overseas shipping? Not so much, and they lack big time in the content category for this. They actually talk about it, but not near enough. There is a lot more to overseas shipping than meets the eye, and if you want to know how to do it right, you will need to rely on the forums, because the course itself doesn’t talk too much about it. Most of the opportunities to buy products at wholesale are found overseas (as i found out), and there is a learning curve involved with that, and you are left on your own to figure out for the most part. I found that the majority of the questions on the forums centered around that, and if they just went more into the details of overseas shipping, that that wouldn’t be the case. That’s why the forums (and Facebook group) are so invaluable…
Scott Voelker is the real deal when it comes to private labeling! I’ve been listening to his podcast for a while now and I really LOVE his way of teaching and SHARING his knowledge; most important of all is his being an humble and honest man, giving good advices to beginners and experienced sellers alike, and giving a nice positive vibe with his words and manners. His book reflect all of this and MUCH MUCH more. This is definitely a must for everyone serious about his Amazon business. 5 star for a great book and a great man!
A guy who drove an old Ford pickup his whole life figured out this stuff long ago…importing cheap goods and selling for a higher price. He opened thousands of stores. I should be able to figure out how to get a few products stocked and listed on Amazon. I’ve done extremely well in the past selling on eBay. FBA may have a few technical hurdles, but nothing anything a halfway intelligent person can’t figure out pretty quickly.
