Review: Amazon Boot Camp by The Selling Family
The famous Amazon Boot Camp ('ABC') is an Amazon seller course by The Selling Family. It's been fully updated for 2019. ABC teaches you, step by step, how to start selling products - and expand quickly - on Amazon.
Here's my honest review:
1. Lifetime access; private excellent, supportive live facebook group
2. Step-by-step and friendly
3. Also reviews and trains you on optional software/tools/bookkeeping concepts to manage/grow/streamline your business
1. Limited help with sourcing wholesale and/or private label. Primary methods taught are finding products via retail arbitrage and online arbitrage
2. Intended for U.S.-based sellers only
Focus: Rounded program (covers all the basics) with emphasis on sourcing resellable products from major retailers.
Amazon mega-seller Jessica Larrew (right, of The Selling Family) sold over $300,000 in her first year selling on Amazon. That was just 7 years ago. She's going gangbusters today!
ABC's content is all immediately accessob;e after cleared payment, and it gives you 'steps' to selling on Amazon in 32+ videos, each with an accompanying PDF that you can read and/or print out.
Jessica is an expert at finding inventory locally from retail and liquidation stores so I recommend her course if you are in the U.S. and you are a.) a brand new beginner to selling on amazon and/or b.) you are an Amazon seller who wants to focus on getting inventory locally from retail stores. There is a lot of profit potential from discounted products on sale in local stores around you.
One thing I enjoy immensely is the private Facebook Group for ABC members. Everyone is helpful and friendly and lends a lot of support to one another.
ABC is excellent overall but it's not for everyone. If you're looking for in-depth wholesale or private label product training, you'll only find the basics here. In terms of sourcing training, ABC focuses on retail and online arbitrage.

- Setting up your seller account

How much is it?
ABC's regular price is $495 (that's the price at the time I published this article) for lifetime access. (Or you can pay $195 a month for 3 months.) It has a 30-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee.
