James yes I agree with you on a couple points, the promotional videos looks hyped up, and yes its made out you dont need to do any work. However, J&M have always said (on webinars), its hard work (if you have never experienced this before) just like any business when to get things moving, plus its on the high price. I know many well known marketers who charge double the price and ship their product – (I can recall a launch happening last year around video marketing). The facts are, this business model will make people money (a big statement, I know) “ONLY” if one puts the work in.

Please don’t make the mistake of using your credit card to run out and buy a lot of product to sell on Amazon before you learn how to pick good selling products based on seller competition, price, product ranking and other variables.

For what fba training courses worth, even though I’ve done we’ll with the model for years, I launched a new product with tips from ASM and am now averaging $150 – $200 in profit per day on this new product alone. I won’t credit all of this to ASM, but it did help me improve my own process a bit.
What drives the point home about how (IMO unreasonably) high a price point ASM is, is the fact that if you get others to sign under your affiliate, you get to pocket $2K. So sure, you can make up that initial $4K outlay if you get others to sign up, but for me, I’d have to be *really* on board with ASM in order to, in good conscience, personally pitch it like it is advertised.

This is why my #1 Recommendation works for so many online income seekers, it’s super cheap to run (I spend 10 dollars a day for my full time earning online business and work 10 hours/week) and it only requires the willingness to learn and take action on what you learn. You’ll have to invest time and effort, but the risk is nothing and the reward is consistent online income. How large is up to you.
The market saturation issue was my primary concern for quite some time as well. But after seeing how many opportunities there are on Amazon, I can’t see how it would ever be an issue. If you are in the top 1000-2000 in a product category, you are doing ok. So with dozens of categories, I don’t see the market saturation issue coming into play.
If you have $4000 available for the course and several thousand more to manufacture your own private label and are prepared to risk it at one go, then the ASM might be your cup of tea. I am not anti-ASM, but I do think it is very expensive, can be risky and there are better alternatives available.
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.
Update (Feb 2017): Proven Private Label 2.0 has just launched (As of 17 Oct 2017, please don’t buy PPL2.0 on it’s own as it’s now included in PAC). I have started going through the course and can say that it’s very similar to what I do. Most of my sales are in fact “Private Label the Easy Way” type products, including my first and oldest private label product which is currently ranked Top 1.9% in Beauty and another easy way SKU at Top 0.014855% in Industrial & Scientific! One note: All the “Proven” modules are initially launched as standalone courses. They can be purchased separately for those who want to get them at launch. However if they are related to selling on Amazon, they will be added to the Proven Amazon Course about 6 months after launch. This means that if you buy the Proven Amazon Course, you get continual updates at no additional cost – making PAC an incredible value, with course content that is constantly being improved and updated.
