Simple Product Profits, First Impressions On This Amazon Business Course

It's good to be back again on this platform.  I'm not writing as much these days simply because I've been busy attempting alternative ways of making income.  About two months ago, my wife, Jessica and I spent a great chunk of our time looking online for land to develop into custom homes, apartments, etc.  My father-in-law has over 25 years of experience doing this and he agreed to mentor us on all aspects of this business.

So we spent considerable time online looking for great parcels to buy in Riverside county.  We drove to selected lots.  Some were in Lake Elsinore, while others were in Murrieta.  At one point, we even made an offer on a parcel that was perfect for an 8-unit apartment complex that would've have brought in outstanding cash flow.  Then came the pop; our bubble was popped by the insane and ridiculous fees the cities of Riverside county are imposing on all land developers.  We learned from city officials, who asked we keep this to ourselves...though it is no secret...that development is being stalled intentionally.  This is why anyone looking to buy land in west Riverside county has inventory galore to choose from.  It would've taken $14K to get us all licensed and permitted in Lake Elsinore!  Well that's just too much to spend before even scratching the dirt.  So we moved onto something else.

This past Tuesday, Jessica and I joined a webinar on selling on Amazon.  We both have been quite interested in this for some time.  In fact, I've mentioned on this blog that having your own e-commerce site or selling on Amazon is a great way to bring in additional income in this day and age.  Two guys were hosting, Austin Hilton and Jeremy Sandow of "Simple Product Profits."

Having been on several webinars before, including one hosted by Ramit Sethi of "I Will Teach You To Be Rich," I knew how it would play out.  The hosts would give us some golden nuggets into how they make tons of money on their platform, tell us all we could do the same, and then hook everyone into an urgent decision to buy their course for a reduced price.  Ramit's price tag a year ago was too steep for me.  My wife and I, again, have been looking for a way to enter into a new arena without paying for an expensive course that would leave us too short to start-up.

I was pleasantly surprised by Austin and Jeremy's course cost segment.  The price for their Platinum Membership was a mere $497.  It included access to the 7 step-by-step learning modules, the Facebook Mastermind group,  monthly members only webinars, twice monthly live coaching workshops, and a done for you Amazon sales page.  Now that is value!  Since both Jessica and I are into this content, and want to successfully launch our own FBA (Fulfilled By Amazon) business, we committed to the purchase.  We're really paying about $250 each since we can do it together...a bargain!



Okay, now onto what we have experienced thus far.  Jessica and I have systematically gone through two modules.  What we like about each module is that the videos within them are full of specific information.  Jeremy and Austin hold nothing back.  The tips they share have already sped us at least two to three months ahead of schedule.  I also like that they include a "checklist" of things to do before moving onto the next module.  This keeps you focused, and allows you to digest all of the material shared in the module by putting it to practice.

I have bashed "opportunities" on this blog before, but the Simple Product Profits is not going to be one of them!  Of course results will vary for each individual.

I will be sharing our progress in future posts.  If you are interested in e-commerce (which is only getting more and more of the retail pie...outcompeting brick and mortar), a great place to start is with a webinar by the Simple Product Profits guys, Austin and Jeremy.  Here is their FB page: Simple Product Profits.  Thanks for reading!  Until next time.

    1. Hi Kevin, thanks for your comment. As I told Rob below, my wife and I (along with my retired builder father-in-law, are in the process of raising investor funds via syndication for the purchase of a lot we plan to build a spec home on. This has taken our time, interest, and money away from SPP. Sorry. I can only vouch for the course being one of the best I've ever bought. And I've bought many in my investor career.

    2. Hi Kevin, I actually did complete the steps in this course and can attest that it is the best opportunity in our world today. I also believe this is the best course HANDS DOWN. only 497, complete access to the teachers at all times. Cannot go wrong. I'm making 20k a month and it's only been 40 days since I launched

    1. Hey Rob, my wife and I decided to focus our energy and money on a venture we've always wanted to do along with my father-in-law, spec home building. We're actually raising funds right now via investor money for a custom home building project. So we dropped doing the SPP system for the time being. Sorry, can't comment on outcomes other than to give due respect for the course itself.

    1. Hi Clay. I'm not currently working on fulfilled by Amazon (FBA). I can tell you that using Amazon is a great place to validate any product you may want to brand and sell. I think you get a lot of great resources from the SPP, and you can access them at their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/sppplatinummembers/. But if I were to do it again, I'd spend twice the amount, around $1300, and go with Steve of: Mywifequitherjob.com. He will do so much more to ensure your success. I like Steve a lot. Listen to his next webinar, and he'll sell his course for $1090 or something like that. Thanks for visiting. Please don't forget to subscribe to this blog!

    2. Austin and Jeremy would probably do more than your Steve guy. no offense but these guys have 3 live coaching sessions a week, are always on call in the FB group, always there to answer questions etc... and their course is more than half the price of Steve's. so already better in my opinion. Plus with their course and their expertise, I launched my product and in my second month am making 20k a month.

  6. I participated in the webinar and enjoyed it very much. So much so that I made the $497 investment. That same weekend my 92yo uncle was diagnosed with cancer and a cousin was scheduled for double mastectomy. It was too much so I couldn't give any attention to implement the strategies I had learned, so I requested a refund (less than 30 days into the 60 day full refund guarantee). Sadly I have not gotten my refund which has gutted my faith in them as an honorable company and business. #verydisappointed

    1. Hello Cheryl,
      I am sorry about the sad experience you had with Simple Product Profits.
      Have you already received your refund by now? I am curious to know. Hope you have received it by now.

    2. Please it is vital that I also obtain a refund please. My mother has died and I have been unable to attend to anything... at all. As well I originally tried many times to contact the principles running this but no-one ever got back to me. I have a very small start up company and had to borrow money to pay for the package... i was so hopeful, but our exchange rate meant paying over $200 more as well which I didn't realise at the time. This loss has caused me extreme financial hardship. The big sell is very well done but there was never any follow through, no reply!! with any of your promises, and even your add on webinars are over three years old.... How can you do this to people?? Please return my money?? Jennifer

    3. Sorry for this Jennifer. It's too bad that no one is honest anymore? I was considering them but they lost my support. They sounded shady on the webinar also..

    4. I joined and have had amazing success with SPP. This woman probably did get her refund back and just never came back to tell us. They are the most stand up group of guys I've known in a long time.

  8. Well like a sucker i paid them 997 for this webinar. their email is invalid. can't find the facebook support he talks about. I see it on the internet now for 27$ Iam asking for a refund but all the links I have gone to are dead. I guess I have to admit I got scammed again. There doesn't seem to be anything honest on the internet. Everyone is out to fill their own pocket with dishonesty.

  9. Their program is now $1500. I watched their Facebook advertised webinar last night. I'm trying to find some legitimate experiences using their program and reviews. How they went from $497 to now $1500 to join seems suspect.

  11. You're right Ben, I just watched their webinar also, REALLY liked it, however $1500 is steep! It's 3 payments of $497, so wondering if that's what the above people paid too, as they say $497 but not 3 times.???? Does anyone know if this is worth it and are now making $$$??

  12. I watched the webinar twice - it's pre-recorded with the exact same comments coming up for both webinars. The exact same people buying the product twice in one day!!LOL!! It's brilliant, really. They say the first 50 people will get a deal. Then they say "only 12 spaces left!" Then 4 spaces, then 3, then 1. Meanwhile, who knows how many people are even on the webinar and, I'm betting, if I sign up tomorrow, it will be the same price (which is $497, once).

    2. Many of these type of marketers seem to be using "webinar jam," which seems to supply a sort of webinar-bot system. Some even go so far as to include "spontaneous" audio fail lasting just a few seconds, intended to give the impression of a live webinar. Sleazy!

      Delete
    3. So what, he is using marketing tactics to sell a product that he has put all of his energy and now his life work into. This was the most amazing investment I've ever made. I'm fine with the fact that these are billionaires who just don't have the time to do a live webinar for all the naysayers every week. They reserve their live webinars for people who actually buy into the course. 3 times a week, full access to them on FB for questions. They are amazing.

  13. WOW! Just watch it too and I was putting comments they didn't like I guess and got kicked out of the webinar and when I tried to join back, like it happened to Sandy, it was pre recorded and had to start from the beginning and saw all the same comments again... WHAT A GOOD SCAM! Almost went for it!!!! Glad I did my research! Or it seems like I get viruses right now when I do research about it... BAD BAD BAD!

  14. I asked them if they were a member of BBB and he said no. That was a red flag for me. If you are making that much money and are not affiliated with BBB online, something is wrong. (Listened to their spill last night and the price was $997 if you paid by the end of the webinar.)

  15. To whoever is reading these comments in full...I would no longer recommend this way of making money. The "hustle" is way too crowded! When I had a go of it it wasn't as crowded, meaning there weren't as many people on Amazon trying to do the same thing as there are now. That plus we noticed that people were getting reviews by giving away or discounting samples. You can't do that anymore as Amazon put an end to it. Thus getting your listing on the front page is incredibly difficult. You're better off setting up your own online store a la Steve from Mywifequitherjob.com. Check him out instead. Good luck!

    1. I'm sorry you had that experience, but in my opinion, you did not actuallly do the steps so how do you really know? I did the steps laid out by SPP and now am making 20k a month and it's only my second month live on Amazon. I think you passed up a huge opportunity and are now swaying your readers away from it when you don't actually know how amazing it could be for them. The whole review thing isn't true. I got to page one within one week, still there 2 months later at the tippity top!!

    2. Hey "Illuminate Love Designs", how much you get paid to suck all the reviews telling you make 20k per month ? It's clear you work to support their project. Nobody would write 25 reviews telling the same shit to impress the people.. Camon, go away!

  16. I'm so grateful to all of you who left comments about this. So many people are out to scam others, and my heart and thoughts of abundance go out to those who may have lost money this way. While that can be incredibly stressful, don't forget about KARMA and let it do its work. Hoping and wishing that the "answer" will come to anybody that felt optimistic at one time. Find that optimism and hope again, and then Create your own _______ (fill in the blank) and you won't have to worry about trusting or believing. Programs for "$1000" are rampant online now. Glean info from them for free and ask yourself... "isn't that something I could do myself?" and if all it takes is a little investigating, then set to a little bit daily. FOR FREE. Never let anybody convince you that your mind and effort needs to be built by them... as if you're not capable. To your success!

    1. No, it's not that easy to do for free. People don't go to college for free...this is like a college course. I took it, it tookme a year to complete the steps and with the continued live support from SPP it was like I had access to my teachers and classmates at all times. This is how I learn best, and now only my second month on Amazon and I am mkaing 20k a month net. This is not a scam, whatever you believe is what you will see.

  17. You are forgetting to mention a couple of things. First of all the program is 997 if you can pay at once . 1500 if you can't . Second of all
    They have a Facebook
    Group that people in the group buy each other's products and leave reviews for them and in turn gain ranking. They get in the first position because someone who bought their product and in most cases doesn't even open it but leaves an outstanding review. By doing this you are committing fraud against the customer. They are buying from you because of your raving reviews that are in no way legitimate.

    2. It's actually 497 https://simpleproductprofits.samcart.com/products/simple-product-profits-997 and no that is not the case. Like I for instance only buy products I can use or that I can give as gifts. It is no different than going to support your best friends brand new restaurant when you go and buy dinner from them and bring your friends, even if you aren't sure you are going to like it. These are all small business owners who know that Amazon is an algorithm and unless you sell you will not be seen. EVery person you've ever bought from on Amazon probably had to get some of their friends or family to buy, or do coupon blasts etc. Its just the way business is, noone will come to your restaurant unless you incite them somehow in the beginning.

  19. So glad I read found this review & these comments. I watched their webinar a week ago & took screenshots along the way. I had no idea the webinar was pre-recorded! The links to the "special pricing" of $495 or 3 pymts of $299 are still active & working. The info they shared was still more than I've received from some other webinars. Sad to hear their negative reviews...I literally had wallet in-hand the night I watched the webinar. Pays to do your research & not fall for the okey doke of your time is running out..... Smh...

  20. I boughtthe program in January. I went through t the modules. It is very detailed, I followed everything. I chiised a product, just as they taught me, private label, manufacturer...ect. I invested all together about $1500.
    I launched my product, one mont later I sold out my first 300 unit. The invested money came back plus a few thousand. I ordered another 500, than 600 unit. The program works, and just like any other business, you have to work on it, track it, keep your account healthy....i made monthly an extra few thousand, but my goal is more. I am about adding another product, following the same modules.

  23. The webinar is not pre-recorded!!!. Its $497 if you can pay right then, if not its 3 payments which comes to $1500. I joined in October and am working on my product. Its a Wonderful opportunity and the owners Austin Hilton & Jeremy Sandow are upfront and honest!!! Its hard work! They will be the first to tell you...its not a get rich easy way to go!! You have to be dedicated to learning and doing it a specific way. Its all about algorithms selling on the largest platform in the US. I love being a part of SPP!!! Its changing my life along my fellow SPPrs!! Initially when i saw the webinar i was thinking it was pre-recorded.....then i started answering questions and i was wrong!
    Its the best journey i decided to take and my life is not the same!

  26. Hi,
    Ok so I've attended the webinar two days in a row and took snapshots of the chat bar, paying attention to the various comments by my fellow attendees'. Tonight I've watched it again and yes its pre-recorded, the same comments/replies/responses from the same attendee's lol. I even pretended I couldn't hear and asked for help, but no one responded. Why lie about it being a live webinar? It just takes from their credibility in selling this course. I actually believe it could work in theory once put into practice as I've attended a real life seminar on this with successful Amazon sellers as quest speakers sharing their experiences. I couldn't afford the cost of the seminar I attended but really wanted to sign up for the 'Simple Product Profits' but things like this (Fake live webinar) really doesn't sit well with me; why not be honest in your dealings so people will trust you and believe in your product? Is that too much to ask for really?

Now I can see that yes it was a marketing tactic, but that also they physically do not have the time to do a live webinar every week for all the potential new people who may or may not join. They have 3 live webinars and q n a's every week, they are busy busy busy. Now I am grateful that they did what they did, bc it changed my life, and if they did it only when they had the time to I would have never seen it to begin with

  29. I will tell my opinion: I've listened the webinar 3rd November 2017 and wether is pre-recorded or not, those guys give really precious tips and show they have enough experience on this platform. However, their youtube channel, facebook page, etc are really abandoned since 2016 and this now a days is not good for a business image. Back to the webinar, when pre-recorded, that's the way to catch people like us "opportunity hunters". We only need to be clever enough to have things clear on our minds to avoid a bad decision. I didn't buy the course as I started knowing them by the webinar, so now I'm researching more about Amazon, Simple Product Profits and what people say to have a final decision. Good luck to all of you. I just Hope this guy "Illuminate Love Designs" stop trying to sell the course for them.. Peace!
