The Amazing Selling Machine Relaunch
The Amazing Selling Machine (ASM) by Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback is reopening to new members again in October. I reviewed the program earlier this year (before the first launch), but am providing an updated Amazing Selling Machine review along with details of my experiences now that I’ve been using the strategies for a few months.
The launch will begin on September 23rd and the course will be available for purchase beginning on October 3th. During the period in between, I expect they will be offering a ton of info about the course (videos and pdf’s) so you have a good understanding of what will be taught.
Here is the Official Amazing Selling Machine Site
Be prepared for these dates:
– Video 1: Sep. 23
– Video 2: Sep. 27
– Video 3: Sep. 30
– Video 4 & Cart Open: Oct. 3
– Cart Close: Oct. 11 at midnight
My Thoughts About the Course
If you’ve seen my last two posts on the subject, where I admit I was wrong about the course and where I share my progress of selling private label items on Amazon as of a few months ago, it should be no surprise that I’m now fully recommending the course to those who can afford it (the cost looks like it will be $3,500 or 4 payments of $1,000.)
I know that’s A LOT of money, and is the primary reason I originally recommended against purchasing ASM. However, now that I’ve been through the course, I fully recommend it (under certain conditions).
Yes, I am now an affiliate for ASM, so I would earn a commission if you purchased through my link, but I’m now recommending you buy it because it has literally changed my life within just a few months.
ASM Teaches You How to Build a Real Amazon Business
If you’ve made it to this page, I’m guessing you probably know what the course is about, but you want to know if it really works before you buy it. Well, I’ll say this – it’s a solid business model, but that by itself doesn’t guarantee success.
Although I’ve done very well with it, and I know of many others who have done well also, there are plenty of others who are making little or no money. I can’t say exactly why since everyone will manage their business differently, but it’s just like any other business – success with ASM ultimately comes down to good decisions and proper execution.
That being said, this really is something ANYBODY should be able to do with the right training. Yes, I did enter the course with prior experience selling on Amazon, but I launched my new private label product with two young kids at home and a full time job (including a nearly two-hour commute each way).
If I was able to fit it into my schedule, so can you.
If you’re concerned about not doing it right because you’ve never done anything like this before, I can help those who purchase through my affiliate link by guiding them through the process (here are more details about my awesome Amazing Selling Machine Bonus.)
Honestly, there are a lot of nuances of an Amazon business, so you’d have me as a resource so you can leverage my experience. Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback put together great training, but they weren’t very available to answer specific member questions. The result was that community members had to mostly rely on each other through the forum and private Facebook page as they collectively learned many of these nuances through trial and error.
FYI: Since this is a real business, you will have to spend money on things besides the cost of the course (inventory, logo, images, etc.). This will vary depending on the product you choose and how much you’re able to bootstrap, but my total startup cost was about $1,500.
My Amazing Selling Machine Results
Now, my stats. Honestly, I’m CRUSHING it and my biggest problem is getting enough inventory from my supplier. The week of Labor Day, I had more than $20,000 in sales, which was about $8,000 profit ~40%). That’s more than $1,000 in profit per day, so in that week alone I made more than the cost of the the course plus all my other startup costs (including inventory). Here’s my last Sales Summary screenshot from before I ran out of stock…most of this comes from one product that went live in early June.
I’m trying to be as transparent as possible, so don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you’ve got any questions about my results.
My Amazing Selling Machine Bonus
I believe I’m one of the few people from the course who has sold more than $50,000 in a single month selling something besides supplements, and you’ll have access to everything I know and be able to ask me any questions one on one for the term of the 8 week course.
I’ve also arranged a fewKILLER sessions with another $50k+ member that you would have exclusive access to. Imagine being able to ask direct questions to multiple ASM rockstars? You won’t find a bonus this valuable from many other people.
Think hard about who you sign up with and about the value you are getting with your bonus.
A free iPad? Unless that actually helps you succeed, it may just end up being a $3,500 iPad.
The same goes for any software people may try to throw in as a bonus. There are always other resources that can help your business, but you really shouldn’t need anything other than what’s provided in the course. If you’re not sure if something will really add value to your business, ask some people who’ve been through the course already. Think about what the bonus will really add to your businesss and I’m sure you come to the conclusion that the best resource is a direct connection to someone who has already succeeded.
Why You Should Trust Me
Well, first, I have organized all my notes and best tips from the course. I’ve got a ton of information related to sourcing, listing, promoting, branding, etc. As much as the business model works, there are some key decision points that are key to launching a good product. There will be a lot of other new members launching products at the same time, so these extra tips can help you put together a better product and have it launched more quickly.
Also, as much as I respect Matt and Jason for being smart guys who have been very successful on Amazon, they are not “geniuses”. They just put together a good quality training course that covers a great business model, but you’re still left to do all the work yourself. The training had to be done at a high enough level to allow everyone to make some of their own choices (you wouldn’t want every member to be doing exactly the same thing). Also, it had to be broad enough for members of all experience levels to follow along. Overall, I think they did an excellent job of balancing what info to provide in the training since it’s just not possible to cover everything you might come across when launching a new business.
That’s really why I decided to offer myself as a resource for the Amazing Selling Machine bonus. I will literally be sharing EVERYTHING I know so that you are provided with the best chance for success.
I will make myself personally available to each of my affiliate customers, so you’ll be able to ask me ANYTHING you want. I’ll do my best to be as responsive as possible, but I’m a real person with a life, so don’t expect me to be “on call” 24 hours per day. I’m almost always available within a day, and usually within a couple of hours, which should be more than sufficient.
I’ll be totally upfront about everything, including my costs, my income, what resources I used, etc. The only thing I can’t share is my product, and when I show you my most recent stats below, you’ll understand why.
Still, most of the information will be very sensitive information that I’ve never shared with anyone, so I will manually be approving who I allow to purchase the course through my link and will require that you sign a non-disclosure agreement before I agree to work with you.
I will only accept people who are serious about making this work, so if you are interested, please sign up to my general mailing list on the right hand side of this page or contact me through the Contact form below.
If you’ve got any comments or questions about my Amazing Selling Machine bonus or the course in general, don’t hesitate to ask. I’d prefer if you post your questions in the comments below so that everyone can benefit – I will be 100% honest, telling you both the good and the bad. Seriously, ask me ANYTHING.
You’ll hear a lot of hype about the course as affiliates promote it, but it is still business, so success isn’t guaranteed. The course is very expensive, so I only want to work with people who know what they are getting into.
If there is enough interest, I will schedule a 100% free webinar so anyone who’s interested can ask me direct questions about the course. Comment below if you’re interested and I’ll schedule something for the last week of September.
Again, don’t forget to check out the Facebook Group I set up if you’d like to have a more open discussion about the course:
