Act with Authenticity and Integrity
to Take Entrepreneurs to the Next Level.
WHY I STARTED ASC
I launched ASC after witnessing numerous families and individuals being taken for small fortunes by "Amazon Gurus" making false claims about their success.
After being approached by dozens of people on the verge of losing their life's savings, I created THE ULTIMATE GUIDES, a NO-BS instructional series for people to learn the realities of selling on Amazon before investing the farm.
– Originator of Amazon Sellers Club
I've worked with Amazon for more than a decade, first as a Hall of Fame Reviewer and now as a successful product developer and importer. Through my work with other Top Sellers, I have perfected a system for creating and launching successful products on Amazon.
What We Do Every Day
Amazon, Amazon, and more Amazon. We spend hours every day picking, developing, manufacturing and launching products that consistently become top sellers.
Because Amazon is constantly evolving to better serve their customers, we keep working to improve our products and services. Marketing to the increasingly more sophisticated online shopper is a challenge we face head-on.
Our team spends months on the ground in China, visiting and building relationships with new factories and friends. This ensures that ASC members get better service and treatment with the best possible prices. Being on the ground allows hands-on oversight of unique and high quality products that stand out and sell.
In order to nurture and expand our record of success, we understand that simply slapping a logo on a product does not fit with real BRAND BUILDING. We work to understand our audience - our customers - to meet their needs by not bringing them the same crap that every drop-shipper or Alibaba Seller provides. While other Sellers come and go, we continue to develop and grow.

Member Success Stories
Improved listing yields 350% profit increase
We launched RL's first product and quickly had it ranked on page 1 for the top 12 keywords. We also had the Amazon's Choice badge for 4 of those keywords. The problem was, the product was not selling well after the launch work was completed.
Looking at the listing, I recognized that RL had failed to follow my advice to hire a good photographer and the pictures were boring, especially in thumbnail form on search pages. It was too late to find a good photographer as Christmas was just 4 weeks away, so we took the artwork that was done for the packaging and cropped it, then added pieces of the original photos that worked. When we posted the new photos, the product immediately went from 2 or 3 sales a day to 40 a day and increased steadily up to Christmas, peaking at over 300 sales daily at a 350% profit.
ASC prevents losses & wins 5-star reviews
When JC called us he very upset about a design flaw in a large order of suitcases from China. We inspected them and realized that while it was a small flaw, it could lead to negative reviews. Instead of paying to remove all of his inventory, we employed an aggressive follow-up email campaign that didn’t call out the flaw, but strongly reinforced customer service and asked the customer to contact the Seller directly with any issues.
When there was an issue, I encouraged him to offer a full refund AND allow them to keep the bag, OR send a replacement when the new bags came from China. (We negotiated 100 free suitcases to cover losses AND a replacement order with the flaw corrected.)
The email resulted in three 5-STAR REVIEWS for customer service. The value of the reviews was well beyond any loss from refunds or replacement bags. Plus, JC saved thousands by not removing his inventory and the free inventory included in his replacement order.
ASC saves the day and 1000s of dollars
DK sells a child's toy. The first order from China came with a weak spot that sometimes fell apart. Although easily repaired at home, we were afraid of bad reviews. Rather than spend a fortune on removing and destroying otherwise good quality merchandise, we contacted the factory who sent a replacement part to us at no cost.
Next, we followed up with every customer and offered the replacement part along with instructions to make the repair at home. While most opted to repair at home, the effort resulted in several 5-star reviews and a lot of positive Seller feedback, saving 10s of thousands of dollars and increasing sales with highly valuable reviews.
$9K higher profits thanks to ASC's sourcing
ML was getting a bundle of baby items from a trading company she found on Alibaba. She contacted us for a price and we were able to find the identical product for less through our network of factory partners. We also provided her with a printer contact that was able to produce much higher quality packaging at a better cost. ML saved $9000 on her first order with ASC and has continued to grow her brand using our sourcing service.
Crisis averted thanks to our Customs Bond
After mislabeling their product for children, U.S. Customs was threatening to return LP's product to China from the port. Because of the integrity of our Continuous Customs Bond, as well as our Freight Forwarder's excellent relationship with Customs, we were able to negotiate a relabeling effort in the U.S. This saved LP thousands of dollars in return shipping and restocking had this order been shipped back to China. More importantly, the kid’s toy was relabeled and released by Customs in time to be sold for Christmas.
