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 3 other alternatives which will likely suite you if this one doesn’t.
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 and more. Now in terms of increasing the sales, there’s training on using FBA (Facebook Ads) and creating highly clicked on posts and visitors coming back to whatever it is you’re selling.
-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.
-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: PAC.
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: Wait you mentioned other good programs, what are they?
So there are (including this one) 4 GREAT training programs on succeeding on Amazon that I’ve reviewed so far. If you’re looking for alternatives, I’ll start with the most expensive one and work my way down to my #1 choice:
#4: The Amazing Selling Machine. Rating: 6 out of 10 stars.
So I literally reviewed this course a day ago and it also teaches you to succeed on Amazon, but mainly through running a drop shipping business. The thing I like about this program is that it has a very organized training program which is more suitable for beginners and that the training itself is extremely high quality.
The drawback of this program though is that it’s very expensive, totaling to about $4,000.
#3: The one I’m reviewing here (PAC). Rating: 6 out of 10 stars.
Several hundreds in cost, but in return you get more value out of it. But you’ve already read through my pros and cons of this program so there’s no need to explain it more here.
#2: The Selling Family. Rating: 6 out of 10 stars.
Another program I’ve reviewed quite favorably that deals with building an Amazon business. I’d say the Selling Family resembles PAC in many ways because it teaches you different ways to succeed on this platform, but they segment their training into different packages, all of whose prices range around $20+ to $300+ so you may end up spending more. But you can choose which course you want to start with, work that out and then decide to if you wish to purchase another package.
One thing I didn’t like was that they have all these packages and that it may be tough for to pick out the “right one” for you when you start with this program, but they do have a CORE course (their most expensive). But overall, it’s another good program on this subject.
#1: Wealthy Affiliate. Rating: 9 out of 10 stars (highest).
So 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.
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.
