Amazing Selling Machine 11 (ASM11)
Beginner & Intermediate Amazon FBA Sellers
Amazing Selling Machine is a training program created by Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback (CoFounders of Amazing.com) that teaches you how to build a physical products brand leveraging the power of Amazon.
Welcome ladies and gentleman to my latest review topic, this time we have a famous course that has changed the eCommerce business world since 2013; The Amazing Selling Machine.
Matt Clark; the guy who is known as “The Amazon Master” and his Amazing.com team; Jason Katzenback, Mike McClary, and Rich Henderson are back with a new version of the ASM course that's said to be the best ASM version of all time.
What is this system all about? Why is it considered one of the best? Could this by anyway be a big scam? Is it easy for anyone even a newbie to use it and build a legit business? This is what you are about to discover, just continue reading my review…
Here’s a screenshot from the members’ area to prove that I’m an ASM member, and I know what I talk about:
What is the Amazing Selling Machine 11?
ASM is a training program that teaches people how to build successful businesses selling physical products on Amazon.
ASM11 is the 11th version of the Amazing Selling Machine course created originally by Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback in 2013.
I’ve been watching ASM since day one, and even before this when it was in beta and called Amazon Money Machines 😀
These guys give all members free upgrade to every new version to ensure that members are always aware of the updates in Amazon FBA as well as the ASM tactics and strategies. So when you buy ASM11, you’ll get lifetime updates of the course material (not the tools subscription, of course.)
The program is divided into 5 major components; the 8-week web class, the mentor program, the private resource vault, the asm community, and the automation tool suite. More details about these components below.
How is ASM supposed to change your business and your life?
This program promises to help you build a profitable brand selling physical products on Amazon that you can run from any place in the world, so you can enjoy the life and freedom of your dreams…
This means you have more income, more free time to spend with your family, more confidence and self-esteem and the most important thing is that you are in control.
So whether you are a stay-at-home parent who needs an extra source of income, or an employee who works from 9-5 and wants to become your own boss or at least a side income besides your job, or even you already have a brick and mortar or offline business and want to expand it online or on Amazon, ASM is designed to help you achieve your goals.
Amazing Selling Machine Review
It is time to reveal the reality of Amazing Selling Machine 11 and what is the difference between it and the earlier versions…
ASM 11 package is divided into 5 parts:
Part 1: 8-Week Web Class
This is an 8-week or 8 modules of online training that teaches you every tiny thing about the process of selling products on Amazon.
I guess you know the skeleton or the main idea of this system from the free video series (go watch them from this link if you haven’t already. You'll get a great value).
The idea again is to sell private label products manufactured by wholesale suppliers. This means you don’t need to create products, handle them or anything as this is all done by the suppliers then all other selling processes are done by Amazon FBA. All you need to do is to pick the correct product, create your product's Amazon listing, achieve top rankings for the selected keywords and generate more traffic.
In this web class, you will learn how to do every step of the process in detail. You don’t have to guess as the entire course is a blueprint or step-by-step action plan that starts from day 1 of the course and ends on the last day of the 8th week.
You can start with a small budget and scale everything up as you go. This training is suitable for both US and Non-US residents (International sellers) even those in the Amazon affiliate restricted states.
All the training materials are added to the members' area as one module per week in the form of short videos with PDFs and downloadable guides (there are over 120 training videos in the members’ area.)
You’ll get FREE upgrades to every new version of the core ASM web class.
In addition to this, there will be 8 weekly group coaching calls by Matt, Jason and other mentors and successful students.
Part 2: Automation Tool Suite
This is a new addition since ASM X because Matt and Jason have finally realized that to run this business effectively you need some tools…
So they have created some software and at the same time, they arranged deals for ASM members to access some other tools free for a certain period.
Here is the software suite you’ll get access to:
Tool 1: Manage by Stats Toolset – 12 months FREE Access
This includes a variety of tools such as:
● Email automation for sending customized emails to all of your Amazon customers to increase product reviews and provide awesome customer service
● Detailed traffic and conversion stats for all of your products
● Sales and profit tracking for your entire business
● Keyword tracking to see where you rank among your competition
● Inventory tracking and alerts that help ensure you take timely action on keeping your products in stock.
Tool 2: The Brand Launchpad and Continual Sales System – 12 months FREE
This is the Amazing.com own platform to not only help you launch your products and get immediate sales but to also provide continual and profitable traffic once your products are up and selling.
Tool 3: The ASM Business Dashboard - Lifetime Access
This syncs with Manage by Stats. ASM team has built an integrated dashboard right into your ASM membership so that you can get all of your vital business stats in one place. You get lifetime access to this one.
Tool 4: The Ultimate Product and Keyword Research Toolset - 90 days of FREE Access
The ASM guys have worked an exclusive deal for you with Helium 10 which is used by all successful Amazon sellers I know.
This toolset will enable you to:
● Quickly identify which products out of the 500 million on Amazon match the exclusive ASM criteria.
● Validate exactly how much your competition is selling each and every day in order to validate which products are the best opportunities.
● Determine how to make your product better than your competition by seeing exactly what other customers do and don’t like about them
● Know exactly which keywords are the right ones to target when creating your product listing and planning out your product launch
● Optimize your product listings to make sure that they both convert and rank as well as they possibly can
● Determine exactly which keywords your competition is bidding on so you can find low hanging fruit for easy sales opportunities
Of course and to be honest, I don’t like that you have limited-time access to these tools, but the positive side is that you don’t need to invest in these tools when you are starting.
For example, Helium 10 alone is $197, so these 3 months cost $591. And ManageByStats tool costs $600/year. So these 2 tools alone cost $1191 which you save with your ASM11 membership.
Part 3: Lifetime Membership of an Exclusive Community
This is an elite community of people like you. People who are serious about their business.
ASM team will be available as well in this community to share the knowledge and opportunities with members.
Members of the Amazing Selling Machine community also share ideas together. There will be some motivation strategies as well.
And the best part I see in this community is that anyone who needs any kind of help, many other members and mentors jump in and offer this help in no time.
Part 4: ASM Mentor Program
The mentors are former students of ASM who have amazing success with their Amazon businesses…
Based on a recent survey, these guys average $1.8 million in sales on Amazon so you can rest assured that they know something about this business 🙂
Their role here is to help you when you need help. Whatever you are stuck with, just ask for help and one of the mentors will answer you.
And on rare occasions, if the mentor doesn’t know the answer, he or she has access to a mentors-only group where they share the unsolved issues, and the more experienced mentors will answer them.
Part 5: The Private Resource Vault
Anyone in this business will tell you that this is gold!
If you go solo, you will need to search for good services for different parts of the business, like product inspection, shipping, customs brokers, freight forwarders just to name a few…
These services are mandatory to make sure your products arrive at Amazon FBA in the best way possible. And unless you already have relations with such services, you don’t want to risk wasting all your efforts and money on untrusted services.
ASM members will get an exclusive collection of resources with their contact information…
You’ll also get discounts and extended trial periods because you are an ASM member.
What is New in ASM 11?
This new version has been updated to cover the updates in the business and Amazon. Also, it utilizes automated tools more than any other previous version…
Here are some of the new updates in this version:
- 60% of the training content has been changed (including the product selection and categories lessons)
- The new automation tool suite added as a part of your membership
- Free lifetime upgrade to any future ASM version (the core web class)
- ASM Alliance Platinum access to specific parts of the community when you achieve specific milestones (this ensures all members of this alliance have their hands in the game.)
Amazing Selling Machine 11 Bonuses
When you buy ASM 11 today, you’ll get access to these cool bonuses…
Bonus: ASM11 New Exclusive Bonus (YOU MUST READ THIS ONE)
After performing a data analysis of asm audience and what kept them from being successful it came down to one major hurdle: sourcing a product.
There is a fear that they’ll get scammed out of their money picking the wrong supplier. That issue has been solved…
Introducing The Private Sourcing Agent Bonus (the Amazing.com team will find 3 suppliers + negotiate MOQ & price) This is a savings of OVER $1,500 dollars, Plus HOURS of time.
Amazing Selling Machine 11 Guarantees
You have not 1 but 2 guarantees...
Guarantee 1: 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
This is the normal guarantee where you have 30 days after you buy ASM, if for any reason you don't like what you get, you can ask for your money back. More details about this guarantee here. (You can read this guarantee on the link near the top right menu of the landing page when you click the previous link!)
But it doesn't stop here...
Guarantee 2: ASM Success Promise
Follow the course and meet criteria laid out, if not happy with success they will reimburse you for ASM & unsold inventory up to $7500!

Cons of Amazing Selling Machine
The only disadvantage I can find is the high price of Amazing Selling Machine 11. This ASM system costs either one payment of $4997 or 6 monthly installments of $997 (sometimes there's a 12-month plan.) However, with the profits potential you have with this business methodology, this price is a bargain. And you also have a 30-day money-back guarantee if you don't like what you get (which I highly doubt!)
I've seen tens or even hundreds of success stories since I've joined ASM2. All you need is to believe in the system and do your homework (this is what these successful members have in common.)
(*) TYPICALITY DISCLAIMER: These member’s results may not be typical. ASM members joining between 2013-2016 who completed the program and launched a new brand had median annual revenue of $60,750.00.
ASM 11 REVIEW CONCLUSION
ASM is the first-ever training to teach people how to sell on Amazon. Before it was released for the first time in 2013, very few people knew how to do it. But after it was released, many marketers have tried to emulate it, but they are all gone and here’s ASM reaches its 11th version.
The program has changed so much since the first version, but all the principles are the same.
In ASM11, you’ll get lifetime access to an 8-week web class which is the core training of the program. Every module is followed by a live group coaching call where you can ask anything related to that module.
Everything is added to the members’ dashboard including recordings of the coaching calls.
And one of the great advantages of ASM 11 is that you get a lifetime guarantee to get access to every future ASM online class version.
Besides the core training, you get access to a software suite that will automate most of the tedious parts of the process. Plus exclusive access to the private ASM Community and the Mentor program where you’ll get your problems solved and you’ll also receive inspiration by other members.
One of the cool components of the ASM program is the private resources vault where you get access to services and companies' contact info which you’ll need at certain tasks of the business.
And you still have nothing to lose, because you have a 30-day money-back guarantee.
