But once I really dug into the Proven Amazon Course, and saw some of the Amazon FBA success stories that Jim Cockrum highlighted, I realized that it’s now time to take my product-sourcing knowledge and apply it to Amazon FBA.
I am in many nitches and only followed partially what Matt and Jason preached in the ASM Course. I quit my day job and sell on Amazon full time. I started with Retail Arbitrage and wholesale to get into the game SUPER FAST. Now I am slowing selling off most of this stuff and replacing it with Private Label and New Wholesale Products as this is alot less work in the long run, and I control my products/listings. My most successful and profitable products are Private Label and some Wholesale. There is SOO much information in the course that I haven’t even done half of it, or used their tools yet. I’m still working up to that while still managing my inventory.
I have been so impressed by everything. I loved the live event in Vegas. I love the Facebook interaction. I love how many doors have opened because we said yes to ASM and I know it’s just the beginning!

CleanTAS 294 : How to Use the NEW Enhanced Content Features and WHY You Should One of the frustrations about selling products on Amazon is that the platform is changing all the time. But one of the GREAT things about it is that things are changing all the time, too! Every now and then a change is made to the terms of service or t. 12/14/2016 Free View in iTunes
So my suspicious is that once you get to that point, you might realize you don’t need additional training. And in fact, it’s usually FAR FAR FAR more valuable to actually purchase products from successful sellers and take note of what they are doing.
CleanTAS 260 – 3 Things Millionaires and Billionaires Taught me about Choosing Good Products and Retail vs Online Sales One of the things Scott enjoys is learning from the successes of others. One of the ways he’s able to do that more effectively is to pass along what he’s learned by teaching you about it.

Little background on me I have SEO experience have had several sites in the top spots of search engines. I used to have a wholesale business and am very familiar with the private labeling that all seem to be amazed about. One question just cause you private label a product does not make it yours others can do that also the manafuctures dont care lol
Amazing Selling Machine 8 is created by two people – Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback. This program actually launched in 2012 as a beta and then launched the full version on April of 2013.

So I must say I am a little confused as to why you think drop shipping is not a business Josh? I sell items just like everyone and have them shipped for me. That’s it? Profit margin is anywhere from 10 to 30%.

Big brands are always trying to compete with Amazon on price – if you’re a savvy shopper, you can see where the big brands are beating Amazon, and take advantage of that by selling to people who aren’t doing their homework. Get it?
I haven’t been given access to the course, but as someone who uses Amazon as one of many sales avenues (>$300K in Amazon sales last year), I’m considering buying the course just to prove to myself that it is BS.
This is the issue. I was in touch with Jim Cockrum for the Proven Amazon Course and it does appear that it is not as complete. Maybe this is wrong but it doesn’t appear the Proven Amazon Course goes into any detail about how to take yourself out of the process and have products shipped directly to Amazon FBA. Has this course been updated with this information? Does anyone know?
All of this to say, these guys are NOT lying that this opportunity is HUGE. If you purchase the course and put it into action, you WILL make your money back in a short time. However, what really rubbed me the wrong way was how everything is presented as “easy” and “anyone can do this.” The truth is, there are headaches, blood, sweat and tears put into this kind of business. It’s not “easy” and you have a lot of roadblocks and failures before finding something that will be successful, but it IS worth it and judging from the free videos and PDFs, these guys DO have some GREAT strategies for doing what I’ve done- and they do it a lot quicker and better! If the price was under $500, I would probably buy, but since I’ve already been through the process, the free information was enough to get some ideas rolling… Hope this helps anyone who is considering this.
Went to buy my tickets yesterday, only to find out, to my surprise, they nearly doubled in price. I wouldn’t be upset if I had known about the increase, but since I didn’t go on your Facebook page, I …had no idea. A simple sentence on the ticketing page notifying me of the pending increase would have alleviated my current frustration.
(Currently I’m trying an additional Product, that will only cost around $1000 for the first batch incl. shipping, labels and everything. Need another 14 days or so and will see how that goes. But I have 12 month experience now and I’m well aware of what I was searching for and took my time for it.)

CleanTAS 273 : Why Change on Amazon is a Good Thing and Helps Businesses GROW with Chris Guthrie The recent changes to the Amazon review policies have lots of people panicking about whether there’s a future selling products on Amazon.

I think this will help you, I wrote this post after receiving several requests on how long it takes, what it takes, etc. The post is called How Long Does it Take to Make Money Online. This post is specifically for niche websites and affiliate marketing. OH, and it’s absolutely crazy for any program to state that you will make 2K in 10 days. That’s what scams are made of.

Are you saying that you did NOT create those videos with the intention of earning affiliate commissions? If I recall, you end the first video by telling people check out your second video…so while they may technically be separate videos, there was a clear transition between the two and they were both part of the same sales funnel.
“Here’s a question….when private labeling products what steps are taken to ensure you are not infringing on existing design patents, trademarks, etc? Just because I find a product some overseas supplier has I think would be good to private label doesn’t mean the product isn’t already patented in the US. Does ASM cover this? ”
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.
If ASM was simply another online drop-shipping class, it would probably cost no more than two or three hundred bucks. However, as Matt Clark noted above, a business is more worthwhile if it generates high profit margins.
Back in 2006 I was running (and still am) an ecommerce store that was doing very well. The argument used to be (in the days of adsense) “Well, I don’t want to deal with the hassle of physical products”. So instead of making .20/visitor like I was ($20 profit for every 100 visitors), they were making about .01/visitor (5% CTR @ 25 cents per click). So they essentially needed 20x more traffic to make the same amount of money that I was making. Now what is more difficult?
No Amazon course (or any other course for that matter) is worth $4,000. However well-presented the information may be, the fact of the matter is that a lot of stuff relating to selling on Amazon can be found on Amazon itself. The bulk of ‘ASM’ teaches you how to sell white label products. This is just one of the many ways to sell on Amazon. Is that really worth $4,000?
