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.

  3. I'm curious as well. Surely four months is enough time to have executed the steps they teach and gauge the results.

    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.

  4. Check out StartupBros seminar if you haven't already. They give a LOT more guidance for free, plus an Excel tool and free e-books.

  5. Mr Gomez, My wife and I are considering this product. Can you provide an update on your progress to date? I'd like to talk to someone at the company. Is there a Customer Support line?

    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!

  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.
      Regards,
      Tim

    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..

  7. I am just working through this course and am really getting a lot of value out of it. If anyone would like to connect and learn more, you can email me at livelifeintheclouds@gmail.com This is only one of the ways I am currently diversifying my income, so far so good! :)

  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.

  10. Wow. Is there ANYONE HONEST anymore?? They are many people online right now as we speak listening to his speech, are they about to get suckered???

    ReplyDelete
  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).

  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!
