So, the next logical question is how does Proven Private Label (PPL) compare to ASM or other alternatives. I’ve been through both and PPL isn’t bad value for the price, but there are a lot of gaps in the training for a beginner. It’s better than buying nothing, but you’re not getting what you get with ASM for just a few hundred dollars. Now, you can supplement PPL with information that you can find free online, but then it becomes a question about the value of your time and how much you can trust the information you come across (including how outdated it might be).
Did anyone buy AS3 from Jason Fladlien? I ask because I saw he was pushing his secret ‘viral’ software that got huge sales and rankings. It would appear the big secret was you sold your product to everyone else with the ‘viral’ software at a loss to get those rankings.
Actually, your screenshot exactly proves my point. Your proceeds after Amazon fees are about $19, but this doesn’t take your product or shipping costs into account. So…unless you are getting your product for free and having it shipped to Amazon’s warehouses for free, your profit margin is not $19. You may want to re-read my prior post.
I have to say I agree with bayking here. I’ve seen your blog and have watched a lot of your videos. I respect you for what you’ve accomplished with your Amazon business model and how you’ve transitioned that into becoming somewhat of an authority figure on the subject – you’re a good marketer in that respect.
I can’t say I’m not a little nervous dropping such a big chunk on a training program. I am used to buying $10 and $20 WSO’s. But I also know that with most programs, people aren’t successful because they didn’t fully apply themselves or didn’t stick with it long enough, if the training program wasn’t junk. If they said it would take 60 days or longer to start selling product daily, I would never have purchased it knowing I would be outside of the refund period before I knew if it was successful. And as I mentioned earlier, if it works which it certainly makes sense to me that it will, $3500 is a drop in the bucket.
I’ve built a lot of businesses in my day – I’ve had review sites that made $20,000 per month. I’ve done launches and made $250,000 in a week. I’ve built sales funnels, done consulting, I own a restaurant, and I invest in real estate…
Since Amazing Selling Machine is being re-released one more time, we’re bringing back the Tribe for one last time. We’ll go through the course together, share secrets with one another, and meet up for dinner in Vegas at the conference (I’m buying).
Scott runs the Amazing Seller podcast, a top 25 business podcast on iTunes, and is known for making 47K in 90 days selling on Amazon. Scott is an incredible teacher and runs his own Amazon selling training class as well.
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.
It really depends on what you sell. Having said that, a lot of you are assuming you have ZERO liability in whatever you do. Just because you aren’t aware of the liability of what you’re doing doesn’t mean you don’t have liability. Product liability is a whole different beast, but there are product categories where liability is not that much of an issue, and there is insurance.
Building a successful Amazon business can be done but it takes time. It takes nurturing and consistency. Make a 90-Day plan. What will it take to make $100 every day? Work backwards. It takes time and sacrifice in the beginning. Maybe you have to watch a little less Netflix. Maybe you have to skip some parties. However when you have the monthly cash flow coming in, it’ll totally be worth it.
X has extensive experience in email marketing for ecommerce shops, handling ranges of accounts from mom & pop stores to IR500 retailers. He started Essence of Email at the beginning of 2014 to help independent ecommerce store owners excel within this effective marketing channel.
The minute I received an email from Greg Jacobs of his bonus to anyone buying through his affiliate link, I knew rightaway it is going to be a high-end product since he only endorses products of those category. I may be wrong but that is the impression he gave me based on his past promo emails.

$1000 is a small fee to start a business, but a lot of people don’t have it. This is why I recommend newbies to start doing ecommerce/dropshipping. You can start with literally less than $100, everything included.
Having said that patents are very specific. Once I was retailing (not private labeling) a wall clock and got a cease and desist from someone who inherited the intellectual property rights to a patent of a wall clock from someone else. I politely sent them a response stating they should learn about IP law before trying to threaten people because they could be counter-sued. You can’t patent “wall clocks” you can patent a very specific design for them, but a different design doesn’t necessarily violate your patent.
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.
As previously stated, it took me a little longer than normal to get my product up and running. I’ve only been live for about a month now, maybe a little less. It looks like I’m going to make about $500 my first month in net profits. Nothing to write home about but that can’t really be blamed on the system.
For a long time I was very curious on how to sell products on Amazon and invest as little money as possible. I have read a ton of educational materials online and even tried reselling products from China on Amazon but I could not get desired success as I was doing something wrong. These were my main concerns:
The problem is that they can’t. In a store like that, sure, you can make very minor adjustments in each department, but you can’t go putting the extra helmets for sale right next to the air conditioners.
The basic idea of this program is that you find products that are already selling well on Amazon, private label them so you don’t have to compete, and use FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon) to do the rest. No need to take an order, ship it, or even take care of a refund. This sounded so simple that even one of The Three Stooges could probably do it.
And if they are selling supplements, that really says a lot. I take product sales advice from supplement sellers much differently because that market is very different and has some particularities that don’t really exist in most other product markets. Let me just lay some of them out for people who do not know so they have context:
Mike created ColorIt.com and grew it into a 7 figure business in 4 months. He’s owned a variety of other ecommerce stores including IceWraps.com and CuttingBoard.com and runs an awesome podcast over at EcomCrew.com
I definitely was NOT interested in something that generated a low income and offered no way of escaping the rat race. I was looking to earn good money that would allow me to enjoy my lifestyle and support my family – legally of course.
Finding the niche audience is the key thing. Even though I’m I have experience in one sector for a considerable time, it’s a challenge to figure out how to monetize what one has normally given away for free – and how to ‘package’ skills and experience into a site to help people.
2. “Can you write copy?”; “can you create a product listing?” “Can you find a supplier?” etc These questions apply to any business – ASM is not a magic silver bullet, or a shiny object. There are no quick fix solutions.
If it’s not a good product or of value, I recommend a better alternative to those who are really interested in making money online. You can see the products I recommend under my Resources Tab in the section called Good Reviews.
Here is an example. If you raise only $6,000 from your first complete Campaign, you can request the Guarantee. If the second Campaign, with our personal coaching, raised only $8,500 – then the total raised in pledges would be $14,500.
