Signs that Amazon Automation is a Scam

Are you looking for an online opportunity that nets you tens of thousands of dollars every month?

Do you want that money coming in on autopilot?

Sure, that’s a nice thought, isn’t it? A never-ending stream of income arriving in your bank account every month.

The reality is there are hundreds of gurus out there telling you how to make money through online programs they created through years of experience.

All of them promise results, but you find it’s not what you expect when you get the system in your hands.

I know what you’re going through.

Chances are you’ve already come across or ordered an educational course from one of these gurus. Since you’re reading this right now, I’ll assume things didn’t work out as planned.

What is it about that experience that causes it to fail?

When you order a course or a business model online, you’re feeling motivated and ready to take action.

But by the time you finish the course material, you’re not a millionaire?

What gives?

The thrill of learning a new system loses its shine quickly when you find out that there’s work involved with starting a new online business venture.

That’s okay; it’s the same way for most of us.

You see, the truth is that we all have pre-programming in our minds that boils down to a survivalist mentality.

What do I mean by that? Well, it means that when faced with new knowledge, methods, or techniques, most of us find it an intimidating experience.

Did you ever learn to ride a bike or skateboard as a kid?

Remember how it seemed impossible when you first tried?

Remember getting your driver’s license and the impossible thought of learning to drive a car?

Learning new knowledge and methods is intimidating, but the reward is worth it.

I mean, remember the thrill of riding the bike down the street by yourself for the first time? Pulling off that first kickflip and rolling away clean?

Don’t you remember how happy you felt after passing your driver’s license exam?

I’m trying to get across here that when we work towards a goal we really want, and when we can visualize it in our future, we’ll risk the fear of the unknown and the uncertainty of the outcome.

You with me?

What I’m saying is that many people who order a business or personal development course never see it through to completion?

Why is that?

It’s because of the fear of the unknown.

Going back to our driver’s license example. Do you remember how nervous and excited you were during your first driving lesson?

It’s kind of like the feeling you get when you’re ordering that new business system or educational course online. You just can’t wait to get it in the mail and start your journey to financial freedom.

However, like with driving, the first few times behind the wheel are exciting, but the novelty soon wears off, right?

Learning all the checks and how to balance the clutch, apply the brakes is confusing. In fact, some people find it downright traumatic. They end up bursting into tears next to their instructor, especially if they fail an exam.

Why go through all this hassle?

It’s simple, because like we mentioned earlier, we know the outcome is us driving around on spring break this year in our ride instead of an Uber.

However, it’s a bit different when you’re ordering a business system or educational course.

When you receive it in the mail, you open it up, and then most of us are surprised when there’s work involved.

You see, many marketers of courses and business systems use amazing copy designed to get you to feel that their strategy is a guaranteed home run.

All you have to do is buy it, and you’ll turn into a millionaire overnight.

Unfortunately, many of us buy into this kind of skilled marketing and order the course.

Therefore, our expectation is that when we receive the course, it has everything we need to sort out our financial freedom.

Very few realize that there’s work involved.

So, when we receive a system or course that promises the world but requires work, most of us feel a little cheated, and that’s somewhat understandable.

Some do try to make it work, but few succeed. The reality is that it takes money and time to make it work online, whatever you do.

You see, unlike our driver’s license example, this situation is a little different.

With the license, we know the outcome. All of us know that even if you have to take the test a few times, you’ll eventually get your license.

We also know the reward. Besides earning our license, passing the test means some of us might get a car, and we get personal freedom associated with that reward.

While you were waiting to pass your license, I bet you would dream of yourself behind the wheel of your first car, right?

While you had those thoughts, you also had floods of emotion moving through your mind and body. It’s like just the thought of the situation made you feel happy, right?

That’s a technique called “visualization.”

Pro athletes and successful entrepreneurs use it all the time. They create a visual construct of what they want to happen and seed their emotions into those constructs and thoughts.

The point I’m making here is that when you go for something you want, like your license, and visualize your success (you passing your driver’s exam), you have a better chance of securing the outcome you want in the situation.

Does that make sense?

It’s different with your business system because you don’t know anything about the work or tasks involved in your new business. Sure, you might have your mentor guiding you, but it still takes time and effort to understand the basics of what you’re doing.

You also don’t have any social proof of the outcome. With the drivers, you can see how happy everyone in your class is as they pass their test.

You also see the outcome of people driving around as a good chance of your success.

With the business idea, there are no tangible results to grasp in the real world. It’s not like you can grab someone next to you and ask them what to do.

As a result of this lack of social proof, complex work, and non-expectation of results, you end up quitting in dismay.

Wallowing in Failure

One of the most interesting things I’ve studied over the last decade is people’s response to failure.

You see, I believe that failures define our future. Failure is, in essence, the factor that shapes our resilience in the face of the unknown. It’s what breeds persistence and determination.

I’ve noticed people deal with failure in two primary ways; proactively or reactively.

The reactive response is the most common in people. Unfortunately, it always works out in the use of victim-thinking.

The person thinks that it’s not their fault, dodging the responsibility. They curse the guru that sold them the system, wasting their time and money.

Anyone that makes money with the system must be a shill or a plant, providing fake testimonials for the guru.

These individuals wallow in their failure, blaming everyone – but themselves.

The second response is to take a proactive position. Proactive individuals immediately take ownership of the situation.

They realize what they need to do, and they make an intelligent choice between stopping the work involved with mastering the system or persisting.

These people take responsibility for their choice instead of playing the victim.

Interestingly, these individuals are also more likely to succeed in life, relationships, and business.

Which one of the two are you? Are you a person that reacts to failure and plays the victim? Or are you the type of person that claims responsibility and persists towards success in a proactive manner?

If you’re the latter, I want to work with you.

So, who am I, and why should you care?

Hi, My name’s Elias Halder, and I’m here to help you unlock your inner business person and investor.

I’m a consultant with experience helping people build seven and eight-figure businesses online.

I spent years trying new strategies, failing at ventures, and losing money.

All until I realized a simple truth that I’m going to reveal later to you in this post.

Thanks for reading this far, and I hope you’re with me. If what I’m saying is piquing your curiosity, then you’re going to love this next section.

Making Money Online with Amazon

That’s right, we’re talking about making money on Amazon right now.

Amazon is the world’s largest e-commerce retailer, with hundreds of thousands of sellers operating on the platform. It’s safe to say that plenty of people are using Amazon to make good money online.

With 50% of all e-commerce traffic routing through Amazon, there’s no chance of this e-tail giant slowing down anytime soon.

The pandemic changed retail habits. People were already gravitating to shopping online, but the stay-at-home orders forced more people into buying online.

2020 saw Amazon nearly double its revenues from the previous year, with Q4 2020 netting $125.6-billion in sales. The company also expects sales to rise by 33% in 2021.

What I’m trying to say here is that Amazon is not a saturated market. As more consumers move online, the demand grows. Traditional retail is a dying industry, and more brands and retailers are migrating online.

There’s plenty of space for you in selling on Amazon; it’s choosing the right model that’s the issue.

Selling directly or affiliate selling on Amazon is a pretty typical model, and it’s been around for the better part of two decades on Amazon.

However, it’s a challenging business.

When you sell on Amazon, you have several tasks in setting up your new business, including the following.

  • Product research.
  • Contacting and negotiating with your suppliers.
  • Logistics and ordering.
  • Setting up your Amazon Seller Central account.
  • Creating your listings.
  • Copywriting for listings, descriptions.
  • SEO
  • Photo and image creation.
  • PPC set up and campaign management
  • Amazon customer service responsibilities.
  • Managing inventory.
  • Managing your reseller business and affiliate network.

I bet that you’re already feeling discouraged after reading that list.

Instantly after knowing the work involved with succeeding, many people feel their heart sink as they realize they don’t have the skill set required to make it happen.

That’s okay; selling online is a competitive business.

What if there was an easier method?

That’s why Amazon introduced its FBA program.

Amazon FBA is a service designed to take the headaches out of many responsibilities with managing your Amazon business.

With “Fulfillment by Amazon,” you send all your inventory to Amazon warehouses, and Amazon completes your fulfillment.

You get rid of your needs for warehousing inventory. Amazon also does all the picking, packing, and shipping of your orders.

The company even deals with your returns and handles your customer service. As a result, you benefit from Amazon’s relationships with its partner shipping network and packaging suppliers.

You save money on the costs of operating your business while “automating” a large percentage of your duties.

In return for assisting you with your business, Amazon takes a fee from the sale.

Amazon FBA revolutionized online selling through its platform. There are thousands of FBA sellers doing well with their business.

However, the issue with FBA is that it still leaves some tasks up to the seller.

You still have to conduct product research, negotiate with suppliers and handle the back end of your business.

Sure, FBA makes it easier, but there’s still plenty of work to do – and let’s not forget about the SEO and marketing work involved with promoting your store.

FBA might reduce the responsibilities for newcomers, but there is still plenty of work involved with building and running a successful store.

Passive Income 101 – Making money on autopilot

Remember we talked about my secret for making money with any online business?

Well, let’s get into that.

As the title suggests, passive income is the secret to making it online – in any business venture.

What is passive income?

Well, think of it as money you don’t have any direct involvement in earning.

Investors look for passive income opportunities, and it’s how they manage to build portfolios of 40 or 50-companies that they own.

The investor doesn’t actually contribute to the operations or daily management of the company. At best, they sit on the board and have an hour-long meeting once a month.

However, they have a shareholding and a vested interest in the company.

As a result, they receive a share of the profit or a “dividend”: from their shareholding in the company.

Since the investor doesn’t theoretically have to do any work with managing or running the company, they are essentially earning “passive income.”

Another way of describing passive income is through real estate.

Landlords renting out properties to tenants receive an income in rent each month.

If they’re using a property management company to oversee the tenant’s needs, then they don’t even need to live in the same country as the property.

The property manager collects the rent and manages the building, the investor collects the checks.

It’s another passive income model people are using all around the world to generate income.

Passive income is income you don’t work for. However, you’re leveraging the time and effort of other individuals to create this income stream.

The best investors and entrepreneurs around the globe understand the power of leveraging other people’s time and money.

When you have multiple passive income streams, you have several income sources and plenty of time on your hands to scale your business.

Because that’s what it’s all about at the end of the day – your time.

Your time is your most precious asset. While investors and entrepreneurs learn to leverage other people’s time and money, they also learn how to leverage their own time as well.

By setting up passive income streams, you can build a business empire where you have no direct involvement in your business interests’ daily operations.

Sounds good, right?

Amazon Automation – My Secret to Making Money the Right Way with Amazon

So, now that you know the secret of passive income – let me unpack MY special secret I’ve been promising you through this article.

Amazon FBA Automation

That’s it. After building several seven-figure Amazon FBA businesses from scratch, I discovered the formula for success.

The formula for success is to take you out of the picture.

That’s right. The only way for you to make money in Amazon FBA is to avoid managing the process yourself.

Automation is a buzzword right now, but what do I mean by it, and how does it apply to Amazon FBA?

Automation describes putting the tasks you need to do in your Amazon business on autopilot. Essentially, you have my team running your business for you.

We take care of the product research, listings, marketing, SEO, and all the other pressing activities involved with running your business.

All you do is sit back and plan how to scale your business.

Is Amazon Automation a Scam?

We spoke earlier about expectations and outcomes. During that section, we looked at people’s responses to facing new methods or knowledge.

It’s the same with any type of business; there is always a risk for failure.

However, mitigating that risk gives you the best chance for success.

With Amazon automation, you don’t get a guarantee of success, and it takes some months to build your business into a position where it’s earning healthy profits.

However, some people might come into Amazon automation with the expectation of earning tens of thousands of dollars right away.

While it’s possible, it’s not typical results with the system.

In most cases, the investor must wait for up to a year or longer before they start seeing profits from their investment in Amazon automation.

Most people find the wait frustrating, and it’s easy for them to give up because of a lack of funds or impatience with the results.

These individuals have a reactive response to failure, and they live in the moment. They fail to see that the inflection point for their business might be just around the corner.

These individuals will play the victim card, using it as an excuse for their failure.

However, the proactive individual recognizes the situation and persists. They sit out the slow period and start to reap the reward as the strategy begins to work.

The reality is that Amazon Automation isn’t a scam.

It’s a valid way of building a passive income stream using the world’s largest e-commerce retailer.

However, people will always have reactions to any failure, some good, some bad.

But if they look around, they’ll see other people making money using the same model. Why are they experiencing different results?
