I’ve been a fan of Jim Cockrum ever since I read his eBook and reviewing Proven Amazon Course is something I looked forward to. It is NOT a scam.
Further more, even though I recommend something better, allow me to say that if you’re on the fence about getting Jim’s program, I would say do it.
But before you make that final purchasing decision, read this whole review first, before his program isn’t the only one which offers training on the same subject, at the same high quality level but for a lower price.
Quick report on Proven Amazon Course:
Name: Proven Amazon Course by Jim Cockrum.
Price: $399 one time or $146 every month for 3 months.
Overall Rating: 6 out of 10 stars.
I find myself encountering more and more good training programs revolving around the topic of selling on Amazon recently and this particular program is no different.
But there are certain things I’ve noticed with it, particularly related to how it’s organized and the strategies it utilizes which may or may not be convenient for people to work with, particularly if they are beginners.
In any case, I’ll explain what I mean about that shortly and you just decide if it’s suitable for you or not.
Either way, even if it’s not, I will provide another alternative which will likely suite you (If Jim’s doesn’t).
Is it recommended? Yes, but I’ve got other options for you, and this will be my most recommended one:
What is Proven Amazon Course (PAC)?
This whole program is centered around different ways to make money through Amazon via various options such as PLR reselling, eBook creation, selling products via drop shipping, selling your own stuff, affiliate marketing too I believe and more.
Now the last one (affiliate marketing) is the one I personally have good experience with in that I’ve made (and make) sales through Amazon almost daily (my main online sales come from other places).
-There is a lot of training, all of which is very high quality stuff. It is found in video and PDF format on the members area and you really do in many instances get more value out of the training than the high price it costs to access it.
-In addition, community support is available in their members area and private Facebook group which is only accessible once you buy the program, but it does get good feedback, meaning if you have questions, this program provides excellent support.
-There are numerous success stories to show that those who follow through with the training inside this course do indeed succeed.
-Working through Amazon is itself a legitimate way to run an online business. It’s just a matter of using the right training to leverage the potential of this place and certainly, this course does it.
-I want to make a quick note on Jim’s eBook which I briefly mentioned above. It’s called Silent Sales Machine and it was a great eBook on the topic of online marketing that I do recommend. Reading that eBook not only introduced me to Jim’s material, but also helped me in seeing that Proven Amazon Course is legitimate too.
-This is a pretty tough, course to navigate through. Although there is a lot of training, from my understanding, there’s a lot of options to choose and read through, which may be confusing.
-A lack of a step-by-step option may be tougher for beginners to work through.
-And finally, the price is pretty big, although not as high as some of the other good programs on the same subject I’ve reviewed.
Final Rating: Proven Amazon Course.
Green Flag (Great program!)
6 out of 10 stars. Another great program worth looking into if you’re interested in building an Amazon business. It’s not an easy course, but it is high quality stuff, so as long as you incrementally put to use the training and work hard, you should be able to succeed with it.
My final thoughts: More info on the alternative…
So there are (including this one) a number of other GREAT training programs on succeeding on Amazon that I’ve reviewed so far.
Here are some examples:
All of these program revolve around success through Amazon.
But in my opinion, out of all these choices (and PAC), this is the best one for not just getting success on Amazon but in other networks and online marketing as a whole:
#1: Wealthy Affiliate. Rating: 10 out of 10 stars (highest).
Wealthy Affiliate is the only one out of the 4 on this list which not only shows you topics on making money via Amazon, but also with Google and other places, so the reach is greater. This program will have you build sites and sell products through various networks of your choice.
Now of course, a program like this has to have it’s own success stories, and you can get them here, but specifically for Amazon, I have a post where you will see success stories that specifically deal with Amazon and people succeeding on it through the Wealthy Affiliate training. Click here to see that post (and proof).
You can also sell your own products through these things, but in any case, your store will be your website and you are in full control of what you will choose to sell, whether it be an affiliate product or your own. I personally go with the former. Now as a quick rundown of the pros, here’s what you need to know:
- The training is very high quality, more so than the other 3 (because it’s more open ended).
- The support is without a doubt the best out of all 3 (live chat, 24-7). This I am 100% confident on.
- And the price is the most favorable out of all 3 (it’s free but has an optional upgrade of $49 every month).
I chose this program out of the rest because it’s been the one from which I’ve made money though numerous places:
Google, Bing, YouTube, Amazon, ect…
And also because out of all 4, this is the one which is most comprehensive and newbie friendly as well as very organized to make the training, despite being VERY big, easy to understand and go through.
So while I will say that all 4 programs are awesome, depending on your starting budget, you will want to filter through which of these programs best suites you and the less you have to invest early on, the more I will recommend Wealthy Affiliate to you.
You’ll still get fantastic training, and a high potential for success depending on how you use the strategies. I have for many years and it’s still my favorite for making money online.
