In my opinion at least 75% of the real value in this course was given away in the free pre-sales material, a lot of the course was just fluff and filler and things you could pretty much work out for yourself with a little bit of effort
CleanTAS 223 : Ask Scott Session #66 – Your Amazon FBA Questions This is the Friday Ask Scott episode of The Amazing Seller podcast where you (and people like you) get to ask their particular questions about Amazon sales.

I have some stuff that I would share here and there with people, but I have a handful of tips/tricks that I would never give away for any amount of money. Even if I collected a large sum of money upfront, it wouldn’t be worth it if the tactics became more common knowledge.
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 think the “Amazon Smack” is not a widespread problem, but more of an issue of listing violation. By calling it a “Smack”, people might assume that it’s like some kind of Google Smack where you are penalized in some way that is unclear to you. I’ve never gotten any kind of violation notice, so I would suspect that he did something a little unscrupulous; either knowingly or unknowingly.
Is your product listing on Amazon in the best position it can be in to lead you toward growth and success? Have you really optimized your listing to the fullest extent? What about PPC and Keyword research? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott breaks down what you can expect from evaluating search term reports. He also goes into how Amazon uses keywords and how you can get the most out of this helpful tool. If you’d like to hear more from Scott on this topic make sure to listen to this episode! Also – check out the PPC training link located in the resources section below!
The Amazing Seller podcast is one of the more popular FBA podcasts, and deservedly so. Scott works hard to have resources for seasoned sellers, and beginners. With more than 200 episodes under his belt, The Amazing Seller is bursting with content and covers a ton of Amazon topics. Our only gripe with the podcast is that every episode is nearly an hour long. This can be great when looking for an in-depth discussion of a topic, but it can also make the podcast difficult to digest at the risk of fluff. Overall this is a can’t-miss podcast for any seller.
Aside from the dynamics of retail inventory storage, you have to consider this: not everyone is a price shopper. Many people (especially those with Prime subscriptions) will see a price on Amazon, assume that it’s the lowest, and hit the buy button.
This is a lot of money but consider that it may be worth it as some persons have made returns on their investment in only their first few months of work after the training. Starting any serious business requires investments of both money and time.

Personally, I much prefer Colombia for a number of reasons, but that might take too long to write about here. Hit Medellin, the climate is eternal springtime and the people are friendly. With the dollar so strong right now (for those with dollars) you can really get a smashing deal on goods/rent/etc.
The course is priced high to allow high and lucrative affiliate payouts and bonuses, not because the content is better crafted than any course at $297. The last time the course was launched almost all revenue came from JV partners. They used a proven info product marketing strategy, and it worked beautifully. FWIW, this exact strategy they used is also taught by another info marketer, but the name just escapes me. The pre-launch strategy, the drip, the teasing, setting up the webinars and pdfs so that your JVs get their list properly cookied for commissions, tiered bonuses on the back end. They’re awesome at that!
If we look at ONLY the private label section of PAC (Specifically Proven Private Label), the training isn’t very comprehensive. It does an excellent job in some areas, but falls well short in many others.
When all this put together – to launch this business successfully you will need around $4,000 or more. So if you add the price of ASM program and initial capital needed you are looking at at least $8,000. It is a lot. The good thing that it’s legitimate business that will work, but it really requires an initial investment.
2. You’d know that while some customers buy only on price, are attracted to “pile ’em high and sell ’em cheap”, and have no brand loyalty, others will pay extra for added-value. Otherwise, why are there chains of supermarkets who sell only on price and others who do a thriving trade selling value?
based on my journey and another member who has absolute zero experience with FBA private labeling. I think I have been doing ok for the 4 months in this business. I have been making $200 on avg a day profit, plenty of room to build on this with more products, I currently have 1 selling ok, and just added another one within the last few days.
where are the people who bought the course, that are still putting in the hours and cranking out private label products, reaching for example 2k, 3k sales a month (haven’t “made it”, but slowly growing profits). i would think this accounts for 90% of the course’s customers, as they continue trying this course’s business model.
CleanTAS 453: How To Start Selling on Amazon with Zero Money and Profit FAST! Have you ever wondered what it would take to start consulting for businesses and help them list their products on Amazon?

1) the pace of the course sort of made me focus on each part of the process so I didn’t rush through it “just to get it done”. There were some simple things I should have been doing all along but was too distracted by other things.
I joined ASM2 (after rejecting out of hand ASM1). My start-up costs were just over $1,000. Total. This included the product, shipping from China, branding and images. I have done exceedingly well on top of this.
I think you’d be surprised how much you don’t know. I’d pay $4k in a heartbeat for the stuff I learned through the forums (outside of the official training). The reason the launch videos and affiliates are giving stuff away for free is because there’s still tremendous value in the stuff they don’t show.
This way I can bring in somewhat endless amounts of traffic for work that I created one time. Then I just add in affiliate marketing and I can promote any brand name product without risk of bulk purchases, shipping, taxes, customer support, returns, etc..
While all of the Modules are impressive and the best that I’ve ever seen, the other valuable parts of the program I’ve found to be are the Community Forum and the Facebook group. There are literally THOUSANDS of members apart of the Amazing Selling Machine community, which makes it very easy for networking and interacting with others.
CleanTAS 296 : The NEW Open Brand Concept to Test and Launch Products Faster There are lots of ways to start selling products on Amazon. But there are some approaches that restrict you more than others in terms of the categories you are able to sell within and the variety of products you can offer.

Hmm…I guess we came to the same conclusion, but my line of thinking is very different. The reason I don’t think her strategy would be very good goes back to the whole difference between selling your own brand (private label) vs selling someone else’s brand (retailing). It’s been discussed many times throughout this thread and as part of the ASM launch that it’s not worth describing in detail unless someone has specific questions. In short though, it’s a bad strategy that would be more likely to backfire on you.
If you want to learn how to sell all kinds of existing products (found at retail stores and other local buying outlets) on Amazon using FBA, then Jim Cockrum’s Proven Amazon Course (PAC) fits the bill to a T.
$3,997 is a lot of money to ask for up front for any money-making system. For those who cannot pay it upfront, the Amazing Selling Machine offers you the chance to make 5 payments of $999, which equals $5,000. Don’t forget about Amazing Selling Machine Discount at the end of this post. .

I too ended up buying PAC because of the many recommendations from forum members and Jim coming across as genuine and honest with his comments in this thread. The discount price of $97 is a steal for all the information and lifelong membership you receive. Thank you Jim!
The next step is much easier: sellers sign up with Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and ship all their product there. At that point, Amazon stores the inventory for those sellers as well as markets, sells and ships it. Thus, Amazon becomes the actual drop-shipper.
