Amazing Selling Machine Review – Plus… WEIRD RESULTS.

Amazing Selling Machine Review – Plus, How To Partner With 400 Of The Most Successful Amazon Sellers On The Planet…

Two years ago, I went through the Amazing Selling Machine program as a student. I had never sold a darn thing on Amazon before, and up to that point, and my business had been strictly about selling information products. Selling “real stuff” was actually a bit of a mystery to me.

I had been successful before, but I burnt out selling information products, and I was ready for a change…

There was something special about the idea of selling physical products that people would actually use and consume. I was tired of the negativity in the “make money online” world, and seeing 30% refunds on products was starting to get exhausting.

A few years ago, Perry Belcher said to me, “Ryan, if I were you, I’d focus on selling stuff – real stuff that people use.” Although it took me a few years, I finally had to admit that he was right. I then took the plunge and dove into Amazing Selling Machine.

Although the genius behind Amazing Selling Machine, Matt Clark, is a personal friend of mine, I went through his course as a student, occasionally calling him with questions or asking them while zip lining or riding elephants on our trip to Thailand.

He’s an extremely helpful and genuine guy, although he doesn’t appreciate it when I hug him on the beach in a homoerotic way.

Matt and I sharing a romantic embrace.

While my access to Matt was obviously helpful, he kept telling me something over and over again: “Ryan, don’t over-think it. This process is really simple. Keep it that way.”

You see, one thing that was apparent inside of Amazing Selling Machine was how simple the model is. Amazon does literally all the hard work for you – everything from shipping to customer service – so all you have to focus on is managing your inventory and getting customers (hint: I’m really good at the latter and can help you mightily with that).

But it was SO simple, that I kept saying to Matt: “Hey man, so what’s the secret to getting things off the ground?” And he kept answering, “I don’t have any secrets dude. Just create a good product and connect it with customers that want it. Amazon will handle the rest.”

It didn’t take me long to figure out that he was right.

In fact, in one conversation with Matt over Torchy’s Tacos in Austin, TX, he and I discussed how this business model didn’t have any “hacks” or “tricks.” There are no gimmicks, no “gaming the system,” just real businesses. Nothing that is going to get you “slapped,” and no loopholes that suddenly disappear once someone catches on. This is a business that gets built over the long term and lasts for years.

That conversation helped “free” me from the idea of trying to game the system, and from there, my business started growing by leaps and bounds. Instead of looking for quick fixes, like we are so trained to do in this crazy “internet business” world, I set out to build a real business following the Amazing Selling Machine system.

I discovered that there are THREE STAGES to building a successful Amazon business. I outlined them when I spoke from stage at one of the Amazing Selling Machine conferences. Watch it here:

The rest of this Amazing Selling Machine review will show you what happened when I put it to the test…

Amazing Selling Machine Review: The Results (And What To Expect)

I’m going to take you from the VERY beginning of my Amazing Selling Machine journey, because I started from zero. Yes, today I do about $500,000 per month on Amazon, but I started off making about two sales a day. Yes, I started at zero, and you will too.

In fact, watch this video that compares my success ONE YEAR APART:

PLEASE NOTE: At the time of this video, I was doing about $11,000 per day. Today, I do much more.

Now, let’s take it from the top…

Amazing Selling Machine Review: From The Very Beginning

My favorite thing about ASM was that the lessons are broken into really easy to swallow steps. The downside to this is that you’ll be chomping at the bit each week for the lessons and the next steps to get posted.

It took about eight weeks to get my product sourced, designed, labeled, and shipped to Amazon. We (my buddy and I) started small and only ordered 100 units to begin (for a total investment of about $600).

That’s the only frustrating part of this business – the time it often takes your product to arrive at Amazon is usually longer than you would like it to be. You’ll be so excited to get your product, and so pumped from the training, so that eight week waiting period can be an absolute torture. It also can play a role in managing inventory (discussed later).

Anyway, after what felt like forever, we finally got our product and followed Matt’s directions to a T about marketing and selling the product. We put up some Amazon ads and wrote a killer listing.

We had our first sale on June 5th, 2013, and ended up selling about $1,000 worth of product that first month. We immediately put in another order for more inventory (this time, about 250 units, about a $1200 investment).

In our first full month of having product, we sold 53 units (so about 2 per day), for a total of about $1,500 in sales (slightly more than half of that was profit).

Below is the screen shot from our first full month in business, showing just under $1500 in sales:

(Notice how we were averaging about two sales per day at the beginning, and at the end it was closer to five per day. That’s called growth…. even if it is slow.)

Anyway, from there, things started to grow, because as we made sales, we started getting reviews. As we started getting reviews, we made more sales. As we made more sales, we climbed up the Amazon rankings… and the snowball started to to grow and grow and grow

Once we had a handful of reviews from our customers (all positive), we really started to pick up some steam.

From the previous month, our sales doubled, and we averaged about eight sales per day, which equated to about $125 in sales (about half of that is profit). Not “quit your job” type money yet, but we’re getting somewhere.

I feel it important to note that even as we edged toward $300/day, almost all of that got reinvested into inventory when we started. When you’re growing fast (and this stuff really does pick up FAST), you have to be diligent to keep up with demand, especially if you only order 100 units to start, like we did.

Reinvestment is one of the most important parts of this game. You’re building a business, not just a fast income stream. Don’t expect to pay yourself for a year. Instead, reinvest everything back into the business.

It’s like a snowball – you make sales, you get reviews. Those reviews bring in more sales, and more sales bring in higher rankings on Amazon, and those rankings bring in more sales…

Month 3: In our third full month in business, the snowball got pretty big.

Amazing Selling Machine Results
Results From September

We flirted with $10,000 in sales in only our third full month in business. That’s pretty special. We averaged about 20 sales per day, equating to about $400 per day in profit.

Having a $10k a month business after just three months is pretty freakin’ cool. Being on pace for $15k-20k the next month is even cooler. Talking about where it’s going to be in six months? That’s the coolest part of it all.

Things really got fun when we rolled out product #2…

Once we rolled out product #2, our sales spiked again, to over $30,000 per month, because we now had TWO income streams. Those results would more than DOUBLE the next month, to over $80,000 per month.

productwo

What happened to cause this jump? We got more reviews, more loyal customers, and the snowball just kept on growing…

Sales soon jumped to over $125,000 per month.

Over $100,000 per month in less than a year.

The best part?

I was working less than I ever have in my life.

Fast forward to today, and this business does over $300,000 per month in sales, with half of that being profit. Plus, two other businesses that do a nice chunk themselves.

This month (April 2015), the company is on pace to do about $350,000 this month alone. That’s almost four million dollars on a business that is less than two years old – and profit margins are about 50%.

Amazing Selling Machine Review: A Warning

I’ve been teaching people how to build online businesses for eight years. I’ve made millions of dollars online, and many of my students are now even more successful than I am. But there’s one thing that you should know before getting into this business.

AMAZON IS NOT YOUR BUSINESS.

You do not run an “Amazon business.” You run a BUSINESS. Amazon just happens to be your channel for getting sales and customers. >Matt helped me see that there are no magic buttons, there are just products and customers.

If you come into Amazing Selling Machine with an attitude of gaming the system, or selling crappy products, or forgetting that this is a real business with real growth, then I would recommend that you stay away from ASM.

In addition, if you balk at the price, you’re probably in the wrong game. With a price tag of about $5,000, Amazing Selling Machine may be the most expensive business training that you ever purchase. You’ll also have startup costs of about $2500 to get your product made, a label designed, etc. If a $5,000 business investment scares you, then stay out. Personally, I’ve never seen a $5,000 business produce such incredible results in such a short amount of time, and I’ve been in a lot of business (heck, the restaurant I owned cost me $225,000 and I’m yet to make a dime from it… and my college degree cost me $80,000 and I don’t even know where it is).

With that in mind, there have been many many people who balked at the price, yet still got inside and have seen amazing results. And many of them are in my coaching group, which I’ll discuss in a second.

I’ve built a lot of businesses in my day – I’ve had review sites that made $20,000 per month. I’ve done launches and made $250,000 in a week. I’ve built sales funnels, done consulting, I own a restaurant, and I invest in real estate…

But personally, I have never seen a business with as much staying power that is so simple as the businesses that I built within Amazing Selling Machine. I am so excited by it that it keeps me up at night.

Amazing Selling Machine Review: How To Be Coached By Me

If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you’re on the fence about Amazing Selling Machine. I believe that the bonus that I have for you will send you over that fence, because it comes pretty close to ensuring your success.

Each go around through Amazing Selling Machine, I mentor a group of people through their ASM journey in a group called The Tribe.

As of right now, this round (ASM5) is the last time that I plan on opening the Tribe along with the Amazing Selling Machine program. 

In the mastermind, I give the Tribe access to me – they pick my brain for all of my experience and knowledge in the internet marketing space. It helps to have a mentor who is on pace to do $4 million on Amazon over the next twelve months literally holding your hand through the process, plus 350 other people who have gone through the Tribe before you. 

Each week, we go through the course together and discuss it. We make partnerships. We help one another. We brainstorm together. We share ideas. We correct each other’s mistakes. We share our successes.

Together, we go through Amazing Selling Machine, the ups and downs, the trials and the errors, and we shared secrets and discoveries along the way.

Want to watch one of our weekly hangouts? Watch this one for free:

I run this coaching group this because I want every single person in the group to get their business up and profitable in as short amount of time as possible, and for them to do it RIGHT. My secret plan to rule the world (the real reason why I do this) is explained below…

When you combine the most successful course in online education in history with a mentor (me), the results are almost hard to believe.

Take a few minutes to meet Brian, one of my past Tribe members, who took his business from $0 to $30,000 a month in just three months, and then onto as much as $700,000 per month in the year that followed.

Note: Brian had never sold anything online before.

Note #2: One year after this recording was made, Brian has now done as much as $700k in sales in a single month. That is not a typo.

Brian is one of MANY successful members inside The Tribe. Take a second to meet some other success stories from the 350 Amazon entrepreneurs who have gone before you:

There’s Zach, who had floundered from business to business until finally finding a love for selling on Amazon. He saw success fairly quickly, selling about 50 units per day of his products. After spending three days with me in Austin, TX, we made a few tweaks to his model, and he quickly exploded to well over $100,000 per month.

There’s Cindy, who had been a “lone wolf” in this business before joining The Tribe. She had seen modest success, but after joining the Tribe, her business tripled. She now enjoys a million dollar business from what she learned and the connections that she made inside of The Tribe.

There’s Matt, a truck driver who had no idea what he was doing. Matt expressed concern about knowing “nothing about marketing,” so he just started a business in something that he was interested in. Shortly after, he had a six figure business, and he had investors courting him and offering him more than $300,000 cash for this business.

There’s Anthony, who was working three jobs to make ends meet when he joined The Tribe. Anthony didn’t have much going for him, except for a burning desire to succeed. Anthony had some bumps and bruises along the way, and success took longer than he expected. But after fighting through the challenges, Anthony had a business doing $30,000 per month. But more importantly, he had several clients that he was helping with their marketing, and making six figures on the side! Anthony has since quit all three jobs and is now a full-time entrepreneur.

These stories are many inside The Tribe. In fact, they are typical. Maybe you’re next?

Since Amazing Selling Machine is being re-released one more time, we’re bringing back the Tribe for one last time. We’ll go through the course together, share secrets with one another, and meet up for dinner in Vegas at the conference (I’m buying).

You’ll be joining a group of people who are already seeing success, including myself, doing $400,000 per month, and some people are doing even more than me.

Will you be like me, who went from zero to $200k/month in a year? Or like Brian, who did even more than that per month in the same amount of time? Or one of many other ASM members who are at $25k/month, $50k/month, $100k/month, and beyond? One of our members consistently does over one million dollars per month.

Amazing Selling Machine Review: The Live Event

In August, we’ll all meet up in Vegas for the Amazing Selling Machine live event. Here’s a video of me speaking at the last one:

Each round, I speak at the live event, and I am regularly named the best speaker at the event. Last time, I was slammed with people asking questions – the most popular being: How do I join the Tribe?

But for them, it was too late.

For you, you can join this group of successful Amazon entrepreneurs right now and be mentored by all of us.

There’s no way for me to predict your success, but I can say this: being in a mastermind is the BEST way to ensure that you follow through, that you see success, and that you build a business that gives you the freedom to live life on your own terms.

There is just one requirement: NO QUITTERS ALLOWED.

If you sign up and quit, I will show up at your house and pee on your lawn. I’ll even eat asparagus before so that your whole yard smells like asparagus pee. And then your dog will eat it and fart and stink up your whole house like asparagus pee. Think I’m joking? Try me.

Here’s how to get involved in the Tribe…

First, sign up for Amazing Selling Machine using my affiliate link. I make a few bucks when you sign up through me, but it’s far less than my private coaching rate of $4,000 per month for one phone call per week. You’ll be getting access to me – as well as the rest of The Tribe – for free when you use my link.

Second, send me an email at RyanMoranSupport -at- Gmail dot com. My assistant, Kirk, and myself will get you plugged into the Tribe.

Third, *come to the conference in August.* We’ll all be getting together and getting to know one another, and we’ll be going to dinner together (I’m buying).

Here’s the real reason that I’m doing this… (AKA MY SECRET PLAN TO RULE THE WORLD)

About a year ago, I discovered that I’m way more successful when I partner with implementers. I’m a marketer, an ideas guy, and a fast starter. I’m not so good at the implementation side (for example, if it weren’t for my partner, I never would have bothered figuring out how to even set up my Amazon account).

Therefore, part of the reason that I’m hosting this mastermind is to meet other implementers who may fit as potential partners on future projects. Yes, I often partner with Tribe members on their businesses to grow them.

Therefore, it benefits me, and it benefits you when you join Amazing Selling Machine through this link.

If you’re not convinced, here’s a quick video from some current Tribe members that may sway you otherwise:

  • Lior

    It’s funny because this is essentially an information product that you are selling at the end of the day.

    From the amount of free info they already gave us introducing the business system, how much could possibly be missing in information that is worth $3500?

    Another note, I have decent success with KDP publishing ebooks on Amazon. I am familiar with the ranking process there. Would you say it is similar in that regards to physical products?

    • Hey Lior, I’m not down on information products, I’m just done creating them and selling them myself. ASM is the same course that I went through when I wanted to learn this biz, and I’m up to about $10k/month now.

      It’s like this: my friend Brian went to school to be an accountant. He spent four years there, and it cost him $40k+. He’s spent his life working 60+ hours a week, and he made about $100k/year. Earlier this year, he spent $3500 and three months going through ASM, and he’s already up to $150k/year working 10 hours per week. Which is a better deal?

      The ranking process is similar with some slight modifications.

  • Nazreen

    Ryan, it must be a great feeling being financially independent. Not everyone is as fortunate as you are and what I have learned from Network Marketers and Affiliates, the millionaires is that they get rich by selling courses to people like us but 99% of the time, they are not shown the methods of how these millionaires get to where they are at the moment. I am so struggling, have just finished my contract job in the legal field and not having a job at the moment and this is one of the reasons why I wanted to work on my plan B and without a good mentor, it will be difficult to learn your way through it.

    I sent you a couple of emails with respect to the above product “Amazing Selling Machine” but have not received a response back, so I figure it might be more effective posting here.

    Anyways, it seems as though you might be a good mentor to work with but the cost is pretty high and this does not guarantee my earnings.

    • Hey Nazreen, I’m glad you contacted me here – it’s the best way to get a hold of me.

      First things first: if you’re struggling financially, I wouldn’t recommend Amazing Selling Machine. Go shore up your finances and then commit to a business, and then you may want to consider this as a business model. But don’t spend your bread money on anything.

      Second thing: it’s funny you should bring up your experience with millionaires. Matt told me privately once that people are sometimes disappointed when they meet him. Why? Because they think when they meet him that they can learn some “additional secret,” but he puts everything – literally every detail – in his courses.

      I don’t know who you’ve met that keeps secrets about how they made their money, but the successful people that I know are some of the most giving, generous, open people that I’ve ever met.

  • You know that just isn’t nice – it took me 6 months to get that asparagus pee out of my lawn the last time… not only did my dog eat it but the whole neighborhood of dogs had an asparagus party in my yard – so thanks to you I had to pay for an HazMat unit to clean up the mess in a dozen homes. So I think this time you owe me free entry into ASM. 😛

  • Fred Bartholomai

    Hello,

    I’ve been following your blog for a short while now. I am really on the fence with this.
    It sounds great. Almost too good to true. I am waiting for the shoe to fall …

    I came across a blog post about ASM – http://jordanmalik.com/blog/asm/ – someone by the name of: Jordan Malik – who I have never heard of –
    where they are not endorsing ASM – made for interesting reading –

    There were a couple of comments regarding “product liability” where you have to be careful
    of what product you private label – the liabilities issues – getting sued. Is this discussed in the membership ?
    Can you give me some feedback what you think about that ?

    Regards,

    Fred B.

    • Hey Fred, the liability question is kind of like asking, “If you promote a product as an affiliate, and the buyer chokes on the product, are you liable?” The answer is always “maybe,” but that shouldn’t stop anybody from building a business.

  • lalit

    hi Ryan, thanks for a lot of amazing info that you have been sending over mails, one every day. Sure the Amazon, as you put it, could be no.1 mega bucks business on the internet.

    But let me share with u about my experience on ebay. And that’s where I burnt my fingers for long time, with heck, no business and paying regularly for listings too, which hardly get noticed. When they do, there are guys poaching on you, cutting the products (they are common across the market place) prices unbelievably and forcing you shut shop. And then there are lot of products returns from customers too, not to talk about products reaching terribly late and often damaged packaging etc for which you suffer. Hassles means cost to you.

    I am sure Amazon has taken care of the transaction hiccups. What do you think?

    Of course the $3.5 k as cost of training is stifling. I may have to earn it first as disposable and then invest. From your earlier experience as marketer if you can suggest a low investment idea that could give me enough confidence I am game for what you teaching.
    Do you think you can help on this?

  • Nathan Buchan

    Hey mate,

    Great review (results don’t lie) one thing I am curious about that you didn’t mention is inventory & shipping.

    As I travel around the world full time affiliate marketing I am wondering what you do in regards to stock? As would need to outsource this if I decided to take this path.

    Keep rocking it brother.. Cheers
    Nathan Buchan

    • Hey Nathan, I think you’d get a lot out of the podcast called “The Automated Amazon Business Model.” It explains this in detail.

  • Hello Ryan,

    Thanks for sharing so much valuable information. With regards to contacting the customers by phone to obtain reviews, what do find to be the best times & days to contact them and is there a specific time/day when you’d recommend not contacting them? Thanks again!

  • Joseph Taylor III

    Hello Ryan,

    I was one of those people that did see you at the ASM Live Event. I came back and told my team that we would be following your guide and stages for the next twelve months. You know, “Zero to A Million In Twelve Months!” You’ve stated in multiple podcast that you would open up The Tribe soon but now are you saying that the only way to get in the Tribe is to purchase ASM again through your link? Even for a fellow (Dayton) Ohioan?

    Take Care,
    Joseph Taylor, III

    P.S. I’m the guy that bought you a drink, offered to fix the issue with your web site and gave you my card. I’m very interested in becoming a part of The Tribe.

  • Dan

    I’d really like to join The Tribe, but I’ve already been through ASM (ASM 3) and am selling on Amazon, so I’m not going to pay for ASM again. Is there a way to join The Tribe without paying for ASM again. I’m willing to pay some portion of the price of ASM to join Tribe.

  • rashmi r

    Hi Ryan,

    I am in the same boat, I have seen you live as the ASM event and want to join the tribe, I am a regular listener of your podcast and would like to know other way of joining the tribe without buying the ASM again. I already sent you the msg on the FB

    Thanks!

  • John

    Ryan,

    I joined ASM3 in May – I’m glad I did. It’s worth the $$ for me. My question is I’d like to get in your Tribe. I really don’t need to buy ASM4 again. He’s right folks – I was at the ASM3 Live Event and Ryan was in my mind the best speaker there. How about it Ryan is there a chance to join and go through your launch channels. I’d pay your portion of ASM. Thanks

    • What I’ve done for some folks is allow them to send me the affiliate commission to get access to the Tribe. I’ll extend that to you as well if you’d like to join. The Hangouts are usually for people starting out, but the Facebook group is pure gold.

      Let me know if you’d like to move forward.

      Ryan

  • Love Love Love your energy, honesty and your posts. When is the next ASM conference as I need to join your tribe, as I’ve buggered up my original product. Need to re-educate, re-motivate and get up and going again! It’s been an expensive learning curve, but what a great education!

    • Hey Louanne, the next conference is in February.

  • Sam

    Hi Ryan

    I am unable to sign up this time. Will it reopen again in few months?

    Thanks

  • Michelle

    Do you suggest already having a product in mind before getting started or will this program walk you through that?

    • Hey Michelle! Not necessary at all. Most people who come through have never had a product before at all.

  • Mike Allred

    Ryan, I am interested in joining the tribe and starting an Amazon business. I have not been able to find any link to the tribe application, so that is what I am writing for. I am excited to work with you and learn the skills and strategies needed to be super successful. May I thank you in advance by leaving you with one of my favorite quotes. “It is more noble to give yourself completely to one individual than to labor for the salvation of the masses!” Thanks! Mike Allred 801-597-6284

    Ryan, is there still room in the Tribe? Please email me and let me know before I invest. I find the interaction and group the most valuable prt of this transaction.

    Thanks,

  • Vildon

    Hi Ryan,
    I just signed up to ASM4 before stumbling on your blog!! Is there a way into the tribe please???

    VF

    • Hey Vildon, you can ask ASM to change the affiliate that you are registered under, but it’s my understanding that they have locked things in by now.

  • Francis Su

    Hi Ryan

    Been listening to your podcast to and fro work, I can’t thank you enough for sharing your knowledge and experiences, truly inspirational.
    Just wondering if I can do the “Amazon” business by following your teachings, if I’m living in Australia.

    Cheers mate

  • Mike Wentink

    Hello Ryan,

    I’ve watched a few of your videos and am interested. I am a little confused as to what and where to sign up for ..what? The skinny is that I manufacture and wholesale to distributors and retailers my own awesome and unique product. I only make a few Amazon sales/month which I ship myself. What would you recommend I do/sign up for to get this product really rolling on Amazon? Again, MY product fits into one of the hottest niche markets today.

  • Yuri Soria

    Ryan , I am an ASM 4 student and just found your site and get to know about the tribe. The 8 week training has finished already and I am going through the grind phase. Is there any way I can join the tribe? I definitely need to be part of a mastermind group.

    Thanks!
