    I enjoyed your video and really think you have something to offer. I had just joined a hybrid opportunity (aff marketing/MLM/pay-per-lead)that’s in the alpha stage and would hope to use some of the profits from it to expand to what you’re offering here. So you will be on my radar when the time comes. Thanx again for making the video and offering this opp.

    Thanks for the comment and watching the material. Not sure what your goals are, but I have had several people from MLM come into the course because they realize this is a better opportunity for them to succeed.

    I just created a case study on a person doing 450K a month selling private labeled supplements on Amazon that started less than a year ago.

    Opportunity vs opportunity, this is by far a better one.

    All I can encourage you to do, is join the program can compare both opportunities to each other. Go through my material within the next 30 days. If you’re not on board with the opportunity, contact me and we’ll process the refund.

    Thank you for your honest evaluation of ASM and for the content here explaining how selling private-label physical products on Amazon works. I appreciated your balanced review of ASM after being on the fence about registering with them and seeing what other people had to say. Your authenticity and wanting to provide solid information resonates with me and I may just join your training group.

    Thanks again,

    Briliant article Josh, basically there is no ” secret ” to the trade, just good old leg work and you creating and organising high value information and jump starting us to the nitty gritty part of it, thanks for all your effort is something that I will be considering in the future.

    Just a few questions if you don’t mind.
    1) is there some kind of mastermind group in your members area, where we can interact with fellow clients of yours who bought the corse for the purpose of sharing the extra bumps that somebody else has gone through allready along the way?

    2) I live in the UK, do you recommend selling in the uk at first or is the market just too small for trying, also you mentioned that you have a client from uk that is not doing so well, care to mention what the reasons are, are they because of the product/ market ?

    3) any payment plan available ?

    Thank you

      Right now, we don’t have that. The reason why is because everyone is focused on doing their own thing and are busy. We don’t have that many people in the training to have a thriving community. I have paired others with someone else to create an accountability partner.

      If you feel comfortable starting out in the UK at first, I say go for it. The US is the biggest market for Amazon and why so many start there. I know a few people doing well on Amazon UK though.

      I think you misunderstood what I was talking about. I said he had he personal issues that have prevented his progress. Everyone goes at it at their own pace. Nothing to do with the UK market.

      It’s a one time investment.

    I believe you are the real deal. Just want to know if you have any Memorial day special for people to sign up. Very much interested in signing up.

      No Memorial Day Special. I haven’t run any specials on it, I continue to add value to the course and the value continues to increase.

    I still have not received the access info. You have got to be sending it to the wrong address. It is definitely not going to junk mail. I’ve lost several days now, not being to get the training I bought.

    Hi Josh

    Could you advise, im new to all this and have never brought off Amazon, im keen on your training. But before I purchase, I live in New Zealand, could I trade from here and how does buying wholesale and private label work for me here… Or does it not matter where you are in the world? I just think it would be costly for me being soooo far from uk or china? And I wouldnt make any income for me. Also, how much all up should I be looking at to start? (Training and inventory) thanks heaps

      Nice to meet you. I can understand the not buying off Amazon, because I didn’t really use it as much. However, right before I started the business on Amazon, I started to use it a lot. I can see why so many people use it religiously….. it’s easy and convenient.

      You can do the business from anywhere. There are a lot of people that are selling in the US market that are from Sweden, U.K., Germany, Australia.

      I don’t focus on drop shipping. I focus on having control of the brand and build a real business with equity and customers we can resell to again and again.

      Once you get going, the product is not shipped to you. It’s shipped to the Amazon FBA centers. The only time you will have things shipped to you is when you look for samples.

      As for capital… I’ve answered this many times in the hangout. Some have been able to make it work with a few hundred, but realistically you will want few thousand so you can invest that into inventory.

      I’ll see you in the members area :)

    Curious as to whether you are still actively working your FBA biz. Looking to purchase but wondering if it has been updated since the original release to keep up with any new strategies…

      Hi Mike,

      Nice to meet you. I am very much. My product is on pace to see a 200% increase in sales our calendar year and we are gearing up for the holiday season. I am actually in the process of expanding our line of product offerings on Amazon.

      We are over 40 videos in the course and it is very detailed. Everything I know at the moment on finding your first product, first sale and creating business that can grow to 6-7 figures.

      There are really no secret strategies in business, it’s just doing the right things that will work for the long term. Short term strategies are just that, short term.

      I will be adding new video coming up here shortly. As I add more, the value of the course will increase and I will raise the cost.

      How can we get you started today?

          How long have you been putting it off? The holiday season is coming upon us, which is the most profitable time to be selling products.

          What’s holding you back?

    Hi Joshua

    Is your course live now? Is it operative?
    I am thinking about paying ASM course or not, but it is a lot of money and keeping in mind that, I will need $1000-$2000 for my first inventory it would be almost impossible for me.

    But your course produces me some doubts. I am newbie on selling on FBA Amazon (although, I have experience on business and online marketing), so I would like a training with real mentoring or help desk (about business and not only technical issues), no tools for helping me and besides, a kind of Facebook group where I can share opinions, etc, with other FBA sellers.

    Also, I live in Spain and I have big doubts about if really I can work with Amazon selling in USA from Spain.

      Our course is a alive and well. It continues to grow with information and will continue to. We have over 40 video trainings in a secured client area with PDF’s, templates, spreadsheets and case studies. You’re right, this is a business and you gotta invest money into growing it.

      We have several customers overseas selling on Amazon. Some sell in Canada, Germany, UK & Australia.

      With your business experience and learning how to use Amazon successfully, you’ll have a greater chance of making this work.

      I can understand the value of a community, but it costs money and time to keep it alive and useful. Once people get going, their time is best used elsewhere. When you’re making money and trying to scale, you’re priorities change.

      You have to decide what is best for you, most of my clients love the material and believe it helped them achieve success quicker.

      You have two great options though, pick one and create the wealth, freedom and options you deserve.

    Hey Joshua,
    I’m an emerging high end womenswear designer… I’m looking at opening my ecommerce. I’m want to figure out if it would be good for me to sell on amazon (webstore or other) or sell on a usual ecommerce platform suxh as shopify or squarespace. I would love your input.

    Hi joshua, i have attended several webinars organized by ASM, and i have not made up my mind to join them cause of their huge price.
    But after i watched your video, i concluded i would join your training if i had to.
    But Joshua, i want to know if i can do this business on AMAZON.CO.UK, and if i can have a private labeling company ship my product to UK fulfillment centre.
    Another thing i would want to know is: since the product is shipped to AMAZON, how do i know if AMAZON has received my product from a private labeling company?

      Hi Daniel,

      Yes you can sell in on any Amazon platforms you choose and you can have your product shipped there. You create an order to notify FBA about a shipment coming in. Once they receive it, you will receive emails about them receiving and then inventory checked in.
