So why did I bought the course then? Well to me, the course is not worth the money, but the value is in the private community. I joined thru an affiliate (the biggest out there, check who’s at the top in this launch and you’ll know who I’m talking about) and I am in 2 private communities. This is where I feel the value is in. Along the way, when you faced problems or need help in your amazon business, you can seek advise and help from more experienced sellers in the communities. That’s why I stayed and paid the course fees in 4 installments.
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.
In a nutshell, ASM teaches its members how to successfully drop-ship items via Amazon. That’s it. This revenue model is not exactly new; in fact, I mentioned online drop-shipping as a semi-viable work-at-home opportunity two years ago.
When it comes to selling on Amazon, you need some tools that can make the work easier and increase your productivity. Below are the tools you will have access to when you join Amazing Selling Machine family.
As someone making a full time living doing what they teach, I thought I’d chime in. First, I need to say I haven’t bought the product and I think it’s overpriced. I watched the free videos, the webinar with Matt Carter) and read all of the comments on the free videos and see that they are doing exactly what I’ve done (without the course). They find a product that is hot, they “make their own version” (basically brand it with a logo and in my case, a trademark) and sell it for higher prices than competing “brands” through FBA (fulfillment by Amazon) allowing their fulfillment process to be automated. This DOES work and it works well. However, I make around $10,000- $15,000 profit a month, NOT $100,000 (though I only have 2 branded products and they are not in the “best sellers”- they have 5-30 that ARE in the best sellers so it IS possible.)
The core training was good but, like you, I already knew 95% of the fundamentals they taught (and was probably implementing about 85% of it). The incremental stuff, plus what I learned from the community directly contributed to me going from selling $10k per month to selling $50k+ per month.
And there’s amazon itself, which is where the real problem is. Your store isn’t really yours; your listings aren’t yours and “your” customers aren’t your customers. In addition, Amazon can shut you down at a moment’s notice and all your hard work + inventory are now worth close to nothing. That is far too much risk for any business owner that wants to rely on their online business for steady income. Invest the same amount of money and effort into your own niche store (e.g. Shopify or BigCommerce) using a dropshipping approach
Good point as well about Amazing Selling Machine dripping their educational content to their members. They do this for a reason, to keep you into the program long enough to pass up your chance for a refund on their 30 day refund policy. If they keep you dangling in their program for a month, they don’t have to return your 5K.

in fact that would be incorrect, you would have one for your listing, next review page, then each review posted CAN all be ranked in a search engine, so there are other pages one can rank off our listing (but that is for another conversion within ASM). If you dont think so. Copy any review and paste it in google with quotes and I am sure the review will show up in google, unless it is not index yet.

Just beware. The low hanging fruits that were all over the place 1-2 years ago are few and few in between. Many products that one year ago had 1-2 decent private label sellers now have 10+ copy-paste ASMesr with listings who all look the same. Some sellers have changed their strategy due to the influx of ASMers, and the not so smart ones have gone out of business. Also, there are a ton of products on Amazon, but many are not suitable for basic private labeling.
