Most students take at least 6 weeks to completely finish the 'Zero To One On Amazon' modules as most have existing full time commitments.
Identifying products that fit the training and research is next, which involves quite a bit of work. Once a range of products are identified you should monitor the sales of similar products on Amazon, using software we teach you about in the program. This is done over a minimum of a 4 - 6 week period (ideally much longer).
If the monitoring of your product is successful, you then begin finding suppliers and sourcing samples. That can take at least another 2-6 months, due to you finding exactly what you want that is good quality and at the right price.
Then you have to order your product samples (this may involve sourcing multiple samples over an extended period).
From there you place your first actual inventory order, have it made and then get it shipped to the US.
Taking all of the above into consideration it will likely be 12 months before you are up and listed for sale let alone making a sale.
We suggest to students to plan on establishing their Amazon business on the side during year one, and year two will be the first year that they may start to make sales (if they've taken consistent action). This is a real business, with real costs...it takes significant time, money, effort and persistence and so it is in year 3 onwards where a student might expect to see reliable income. If this length of time doesn't work for you then this isn't the program for you.
Based on our own experience, on average we would suggest spending at least 7-10 hours a week (ideally more) until your product is live, and then once it is live at least 2-4 hours a week. More time can be spent once live on researching new products and expanding your business.
Further, if you're looking for a "silver bullet" or "overnight success" then this is not the program for you. Better you know now than be disappointed later.
We would encourage you to look very closely at anyone who says that you can start an Amazon business and be making reliable, time leveraged money quickly. This isn't a get-rich-quick process if you want a sustainable reliable income. If that doesn't work for you then this isn't the program for you.
