I always wanted to make my own labelled products and sell them on Amazon. These products would be better of if they were private and only supplied by me. I had some experience because i had actually sold some products there before. However, i needed to do this on a bigger scale so i carried out some bit of research. I checked out various Amazon ebooks, free online business training and the Amazon’s FBA program. I even looked at the PAC (Proven Amazon Course) by Jim Cockrun. I eventually landed on the Amazing Selling Machine7 and felt like i got what i was looking for.
The Amazing Selling Machine was introduced in March 2013 by Jason Katzenback and Matt Clark. It was however initially launched back in 2012 as The Amazing Money Machine. This was before the two principals discovered that the ideal and most profitable ways to generate income on Amazon were to sell privately labelled products hence the change of name. What is the product all about?
The Amazing Selling Machine is basically a training program that helps you to understand how physical products are sold in Amazon. It offers a logical course procedure on how to build a private label business on Amazon that is quite profitable. It has personally helped me a lot. I started slow but now the business is good. It took me about 6 months to recoup what i invested. It has been over a year now and i can comfortably say that the income has increased quite drastically.
Most people complain about the price but that is expected since it is a high ticket product. There are two payment options available. You can either make a single payment of $3497 or a $997 monthly installment payment running for 4 months.
The contents of the course are as follows :
- A program touching on the business running for 8 weeks
- Live coaching calls also for 8 weeks
- Online entrepreneur community lifetime membership
- Private member workshops
- 7 important business building tools.
I really liked how the course was spread. It is broken down into 8 modules which are taught in a span of 8 weeks. In short, one module per week. This not only increases your business success rate, but also your course completion rate. The modules are laid out as follows:
- Fundamentals and account creation
- Selecting a product deemed to make profits
- Choosing a supplier
- How to come up with the ideal page for your product
- The formula for list launching
- How to promote your product
- Magnets review and scaling
- How to build your brand and diversify the revenue.
Some of the pros i encountered included networking with other members. It enables you to easily communicate with other members dealing on the same platform. Another pro is that you can start with a small inventory and later on grow the business at your own pace. Much like what i did. Finally, Amazon is obviously profitable. They use their vast resources to do most of the work including shipping and customer services. Better still, you enjoy their enormous and incredible traffic.
One of the most noticeable disadvantages of this program are the high cost and demand of experience. But once you have the two, it is the right direction to take. My products also took a longer time to reach Amazon but once they got there, the rest was history.
This product works well and is quite impressive. You need to have a good sum of money though if you are to be successful in this. More money is required to produce your own private labels. Once you do this and your products are already being sourced and sold, you can sit back and watch your business grow on its own. It can even afford you the time to carry out other activities.
