Proven Amazon Course

by 245 comments
Ok I purchased the Proven Amazon Course at the $99 discount price from Jim Cockrum as I was looking into ecommerce and selling real products online.

I thought the course was OK although I found all the info there in various places online for free. Some of the information is old, but the internet does change quickly. You'll see lots of people talking about how great the course is just buy through their link so they can get the commission. The worst part is the customer service after the sale. You are suppose to get a free membership to his Silent Sales Team with the course purchase. Well the link doesn't work and I've emailed both customer support and Jim with no response.

    Hi,
    I always point newcomers to Amazon to fellow Warrior Gaz Coopers AMZ Trainig Academy. That is where I got my start and learned the ropes and I now make descent money with Amazon. It's a one time fee. It is about 1/3rd what you paid for yours and it is lifetime. It truly is an online academy. He uses a common sense laid back approach to teaching Amazon that is refreshing and fun.
    You follow what Gaz & his crew teach over at AMZ Training Academy and you to will as Gaz says be "kickin' it on Amazon"
    I am!

      I am unfamiliar with that specific course, but one thing I have noticed is that a lot of IM courses will get tons of "rave reviews" from people who have no idea what they are doing because they are brand new to IM or have never been successful in anything IM-related.

      Sometimes a course will be excellent for a beginner because it covers a broad amount of material, but terrible to an expert because all of the material is beginner-level stuff or just a rehash of every other IM product that's out there. This is one thing that I always keep in mind when reading lots of positive reviews about a product: the level of expertise not of the product maker, but of the reviewers.

      AMZ academy a one time fee? I thought it was a monthly fee of $37.

      Hi PuraVidaProfits,
      Perhaps I,m lazy (don't answer that!), but could you please provide the link for Gaz Coopers AMZ Trainig Academy. Just want to check it out, see what they say and what their approach is.

      Thanks, Stephen

    Is that a course on selling physical products on Amazon or a course on becoming an affiliate ( associate ) for Amazon products?

    RE: "He doesn't check his email? I get lots of email from this guy. Probably if I was writing to tell him how great he is I would get a reply - just look at his blog. He is always talking about how great he is and all the positive emails he gets. "

    Please drop me an email at my personal address and we'll get your MySilentTeam.com membership hooked up. It was probably an email delivery issue that prevented delivery one way or the other - I'm sorry about that.

    JimCockrum@gmail.com

    Also -there are plenty of components of our PAC course that i promise you won't find anywhere else online...with plenty of free updates coming. I hope you'll stick around to check it out further.

    Thanks!

    Jim

    I bought this course Sunday, and sent an email to set up my silent team Sunday night about 8pm. By Monday afternoon everything was set up with no problems whatsoever.

    After reading Jim's ebook I believe Jim is someone to pay attention to.

    Although I have not gotten through the whole course yet the parts I have gone through have helped me understand the process enough to move forward with amazon.

    Ok I finally am setup with the silent team membership. Jim and his staff have contacted me and taken care of things. Wish I didnt have to jump thru hoops to get things taken care of, though.
    • Profile picture of the author Jim Cockrum
      Glad we got you taken care of cjshu99. Personally, I hate Hotmail. The only other email service provider that gives us more headaches is AOL. I suggest everyone have a gmail account for important email.
  • Profile picture of the author cjshu99
    I must add that part of the PAC benefits is joining Jims My Silent Team website. If this was all that was included he would be over delivering. There is so much great info in there it's staggering. And after joining its all free.

      Jim helped me a lot at the beginning when I was not sure where to go and how to monetize my websites. In the mean time, I created my own projects ( starting from his advices) and all is fine.

      I highly recommend him

    I have been following Jim Cockrum for years. His advice has saved me Thousands. I had a problem too getting his product. I was not worried. All I can say is that he gets blamed for the way the internet, email servers, or computers that have glitches cause him problems. It is not a question of if you will have a problem with an order but how they handle it. You will not find anyone as straight as Jim Cockrum. Get gmail like Jim said. If you do not like his products he will give a refund. He really does care. I do think that self promotion should be done by a third party rather than Jim saying how great he is. He has hundreds of people just like myself that give him praise that are not an affiliate.
    It does sound too self serving sometimes. like bragging, so I know how that person feels. Jim if you are looking at this post I would like to see you write what you wanted to say about myself, so you have control but let someone else add a little of there own experience with you and have their picture on it. I have seen other well known people do this. Thanks for being the real deal.

      Yea, you know how it is, some people would complain if they won a billion dollars, 'cause they'd have to pay taxes on it. Instead of saying...I received a half a billion dollars !!!

    I am one of the first members in PAC, I have nothing but high praises for PAC, this is the complete course, not only the course has a forum, additional free ebook information to ramp things up once one has understood the basics (which is not tough at all because PAC is thought this way) you get additional discount deals on tools that will really help you to earn money.

    Yes, I have earned and still earning money from the same PAC system even in my first month. Like any business this is not for everyone.

    Let me be the devil's advocate and list a couple of cons:

    Because FBA it self can only work with a few selected countries, PAC should of found a solution to help more country business owners to step up an account with FBA.

    i.e show additional training videos on how to get a bank account in the USA if you live outside of FBA locations etc.

    The second thing. If you have a smart phone, this is no doubt your success can grow a lot faster by using an app for free to find your profitable items. The con side to even speed things up expect to invest a bit more money to improve your scanning.

    If you do not have a smart phone, expect to buy a a scanner between the cost of $200-$400.

    And the third thing, no additional information on how to really ramp and scale your business so other people can do the scouting for one while you sit at home and rest.

    This is not a major thing, but I for one like to think big and do less work to earn more money once I can single handedly grow by business to that point. Remember there are only 24hr in a day one can work.

    Some of you my be thinking that is a part of business and others will be thinking wow that is a lot of money. Well in business you need tools to help your success in business and these are one of those. For example most people would pay $150 a month on link building, and add that for the cost of a year.

    Trust me if you follow the videos and read in the forum of PAC, I am confident you will make your money back within the first 30 days of your product being live on amazon/FBA.

    Hope this helps

      Nearly all of the issues you are listing below are actively being added to the PAC course NOW and in the coming weeks...we are doing a 4 man update/revamp of the content with more good stuff coming in constantly. I have two full time forum moderators and content managers on this course and it's doing nothing but getting better from here...based on great suggestions like the ones you are leaving here. Thanks for the great feedback.

      The real benefit of the PAC course is the community we've built. There's nothing like it anywhere, and there never will be. (IMHO)

      Great shout, no it doesnt, but it does cover how and where to buy bar codes for cheap.
  • Profile picture of the author ZaneAbden
    the main differences here is that if you live in US or Canada you can go to local store and try to make a deal to create your own label products but if you are overseas then you will need Amazng selling machines program because it can tell you where to get supplier overseas online and you dont have to live in US or Canada to make it work for you

      Not sure you need a $4k course to tell you that, on the sales videos i saw the presenters told you what to search under in Google to find wholesalers and manufactures from there you will have to contact suppliers yourself and negotiate etc. GIYF

      I see someone from Jamaica on the PAC sales page, who is shipping out from Jamaica to Amazon not only to the U.S. but also the European fulfillment centers. So I think wherever you live in the world you can make this work.

      I live in the UK and have two FBA accounts, one in the UK and USA. My advice is to set up an LLC, tax ID and bank account in the USA.

      Then use the methods from PAC, plus contact drop shippers within the USA who are directly shipping products to FBA. If you look around you can really find some gems where your profit margin is $10-$20, which is pretty cool when the product sells 10-30 a day, on auto.

      We have encountered numerous situations with students all over the planet...and there's almost always a solid solution with multiple options. Is it always easy? No. But we have people doing amazing things from dozens of countries.

      Did you see the testimonial by Barrington on the main sales page? He lives on an island and is rocking this - making a killing selling physical product on Amazon around the world.

      Our forum moderators and instructors have seen it all. We've been teaching this for two years. If we can't help you we'll leave you WAY better than we found you and give you a refund.

    I would also be interested in purchasing your course at $99. Thanks.

    I have no idea why so many Warrior forum members here are bashing the Proven Amazon Course and/or Jim Cockrum. I am one of Jim Cockrum's harshest critics (but also a business partner of his), and whether you get the course at $99, $347, or any price in between, the value you get and the sheer volume of quality, 'ready to help you make profits' information you get merits a price 10x that amount. If you don't believe me, join it, ask the forum members (in the Proven Amazon Course forums), and then if you don't like it, get a 100% refund.

    Also please do a search for Jim Cockrum on Google and you will see he is one of the most trusted experts, with reviews coming from unbiased/independent sources.

    Jim also doesn't mess around when it comes to providing his no-hassle, generous refunds. In fact it could be argued he's TOO generous with his refund policy.

    I don't get it that critics will bemoan a $99/$347 price tag (for a course from a proven and TRUSTED Internet marketing expert and bestselling author ('real' book and e-book) like Jim Cockrum), yet stay mum and buy into the hype of a ~$4,000 course.

    I think I'm going to increase the price of my e-guides and services by multiples of 10, too, to see if I get less complaints [/sarcasm]

    I have Jim's course since Mar 2013. With his help and course I have built my business to a take-home of about $2,000 per month part time. Had I not read through his course I would not be this far. Most people when they find out how much work is involved they are not motivated to keep going.
    To the guy who said "its not rocket science" obviously never done it - or done it correctly....there are so many mistakes you can make that you really need a course like Jim's to rely on.....and if you do some research on Jim's name....100% all the time...period!

      Thanks for the great feedback on the Proven Amazon Course tadco. Make sure you check out the new series of interviews we did recently with all of our top performing students! Some incredible product sourcing and automation ideas in there for you.
