I recently purchased the Silent Sales Machine after listening to your podcast. I would like to thank-you for both your book and podcast they are extremely informative and enlightening. I’m about to venture into the world of internet sales/marketing after a couple of years of thinking about it and I found chapter 5 of the Silent Sales Machine extremely insightful, I was about to head down the affiliating marking, pay-per-click and website path (I now know not to thanks to you). I’ve now decided to go down the path of Amazon sales and am looking at purchasing you Proven Amazon Course.

The Jim Cockrum Coaching program is the best investment I have made in my business. I was fortunate to enroll in the program early in my business setup. My coaches have been outstanding. The mentorship that they have provided has been invaluable. In addition to weekly phone calls to answer questions, offer support, and provide accountability, my coaches have been available through texts and emails at any time to answer questions and provide guidance. With their help, I am well on my way to establishing inventory scouting teams in multiple cities and also engaging in wholesale inventory purchase opportunities. This is all within the first 6 months of starting my business. Jim Cockrum Coaching has collapsed the timeline required for my business to become successful. Thanks very much for all of the great support!

I will also let you know that the Proven Amazon Course played a role in our success as well. Some of the ideas combines with our own experiences and expertise from other industries have given us the ability to grow significantly. This is only our (my wife and I) second year doing this, and our projections put us at about $2 million in sales this year.
Thanks again and have a fantastic day!

…a shout out to Jim Cockrum, and Brett Bartlett. A little history, I purchased the PAC course in the fall of 2013, after learning about Amazon through another Amazon course which was a high ticket program – glad I did not purchase! (Instead) I got PAC…I have never seen a course or group which CONTINUES to provide quality content to its members, the way the PAC course does. I have been around the IM marketing world for about 10 years, and there are hundreds of courses on making money online which promise a “lifetime update”. But what they fail to mention is that the “method”, trick, or “open door” method they are selling will be closed or not working well before there is time to update the courses. That’s not true with PAC!
Anyway, I had my first sale in Feb of 2014 and have been doubling my Revenue each year. I am averaging $42,500/mo in 2016 to date, running a very small operation with just me and some extra help from my mom who helps with the prep work. I have taken just about every course out there…
But I have to say when most courses are charging anywhere from $500 (low end) to $2500.00, the pac course is a steal.
And the PAC course just continues to give and give. I just felt like sharing, because I’ve not seen anyone like Jim who provides the value to his students which he does. Believe me, I have been around the block with everything from SEO, App creation, Mobile ads, PPC, affiliate websites, local marketing, article writing, the list goes on and on, and once you get on these marketers subscriber lists, they pimp you out to every affiliate program under the Sun, and on a daily basis. Not here. This guy is the real deal. Again, just wanted to express appreciation. Thanks.

Jim- I can not really put into words what you, your course and this community at whole has done for me other then life changing. I am so excited what the future holds. Being that I am an international seller this business is truly turn key for me. I still get to work a career that I love and I have this as an amazing retirement vehicle. As I dive more and more into this community and the concept of online business I truly feel the possibilities are endless.

The Jim Cockrum Team has taken me from “just getting by each month with about $10 extra to spare” and risking $4000 Total in the bank about 7 years ago to paying more in taxes yearly, than I used to make in a year. It was/IS work then and now but, if you are willing to work hard and smart in the first few years starting out, in my opinion, YOU Can do it. Thank you Jim Cockrum team.
– James L.
I LOVE the access we get to all the new courses, it’s a great way to grow and diversify.
I went from 87k in 2014 to 272k in 2015. It was a lot of hard work, but my coach showed me the way.
All the best,
– R. Ellis
First of all, I myself was VERY skeptical about joining your coaching program. I had been burned to the tune of thousands of dollars by other people claiming to be able to show me a way to make money online. Each one promised great things. One of the programs I invested not only a lot of money but hundreds of hours of work all to achieve a total of $350 in sales. I had signed up for your newsletter years earlier but had been reluctant to take the leap because of my past experience.
Finally, (I believe it was God guiding me) I purchased your coaching program last March. Jim, I have been SOOOOOO impressed by everyone associated with your program, and I believe it all starts at the top- YOU! You have done exactly what you said you would- I’ve been doing Amazon FBA part time (I really really need to transition and get bigger) and even though it is only very part time, last year, only doing it for 8 months and putting in limited time, I had $36,445 in sales (I would have had more had I not been out of commission the last 2 months of the year)
Your program is THE BEST, but even more so, it’s your integrity and that of your staff that makes your program unparalleled in the industry. Thank you Jim for your willingness to share your success secrets with us and to help us in time of need!!
May God continue to richly bless you and your family!!

First, I’d like to thank you sincerely for PAC and your Jim Cockrum Coaching program. My coaches have been phenomenal. This program is enabling me to collapse timelines and get my Amazon income stream up and running quickly.
All the best,
– S. Brink
I had been looking for an online business model and opportunity for a while when I came across your program. I had tried some, and was not happy with them. I had even been scammed and had lost some money. Selling on Amazon sounded interesting and exciting and I was so lucky to find you and your program. As you definitely know, there are so many offers and programs out there in this regard, some of which incredibly expensive. To make a long story short, I registered for ProvenAmazonCourse.com which contains a huge amount of information which made me feel very happy and overwhelmed at the same time. And then I got to know about the coaching program. I registered and am more than happy I did. My coach is such a wonderful gentleman. With his help and guidance I have understood the system and how it works and feel comfortable to do the business.
Many thanks again for the wonderful program,
First of all I want to thank you so much I am constantly amazed how you are always so helpful and always looking for opportunities to help others to be around you and your team is so special I’ve learned so much from all of you your way of doing business is amazing you are a life changer you deserve a prosperous life!!!
– J. Goldstein
I have enjoyed so much value being a coaching student under my coach and the various communities. I’m working progressively towards my goals, not there yet, but making progress and the confidence I have is that there is a community I can rely on anytime.
Hi there, The training you are providing me is far more valuable, in practical ways, than its dollar cost.
Also, I like to thank my coach, she is knowledgeable, proficient in her teaching, and patient. Our phone conversations feel as if I were chatting with a relative, and my own knowledge and confidence are increasing by leaps and bounds.
– J. Gonzalez
I have full faith in the coaching you and your team provide. My coach taught me the ****** strategy about 5 years ago. It was a life line for me after losing the job, business, house and everything. Has been my main source of income up till now. It worked real well. Made more money than I was making as a senior computer engineer! In fact, I built a team to help me grow the business which provides me with excellent leverage and they make money too … A win/win situation.
I am a former Jim Cockrum coaching student, and though I can’t speak for all students or their success, I can tell you about mine.
I decided to invest in coaching in 2012. I had been selling on Amazon for about 6 months or so part-time and I was interested in trying to take my business to the level where I could make it my full-time income.
The training that I received during coaching was a game-changing experience for me. I was paired with a coach who was an expert on FBA and with her help and encouragement I was able to set my business on a track that would allow me to quit my 9-5 job and pursue Amazon full-time about 14 months after I had started the coaching program.
Could you learn everything that you will learn in coaching somewhere else? Sure. Is it worth the investment to expedite the process? It was for me.
I think that joining the coaching program was the turning point for me because it forced me to take my business seriously.
Oh, and I found out that one of the greatest parts of coaching is that you receive all of Jim’s new products for free, which over the past few years has saved me a ton of money on great courses, AND allowed me to profit from those courses that I may not have had the money to invest in at the time.
The more time that goes by, the better that initial decision gets.
Hope this helps.
Disclaimer: I don’t get any sort of benefit for telling people the coaching is awesome. I do it because I feel like I owe Jim a debt of gratitude for helping me realize my goal to be able to work from home and spend more time with my family.

My coaching time with ****** was excellent and I so appreciate having early access to the the training materials your produce as well as discounts to events. You have built an incredible team and I am fortunate to get to know them and have access when needed.
I simply wanted to take a moment to offer you my sincerest thanks for all your help in coaching us regarding the ins-and-outs of private labeling. We launched the product last week (*******) and it seems to be off to a good start. Thank you again for all your help, and have a great week.

I recently bought the audible version of “Free Marketing” and then got the kindle edition because there is so much quality information at risk of going in one ear and out the other 🙂 I didn’t think you could top that book until I got the kindle version of “The Silent Sales Machine”. This book has a career’s worth of well thought through, practical ideas that normal people selling normal stuff can just read, translate to their niche and do. Obviously I signed up for your newsletter and I look forward to reading that and also seeing how you put it together – just got the first one. Thanks.
Joining Jim Cockrum’s coaching program about 2.5 years ago was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! It will impact the rest of my life as well as the lives of many others. I’m very grateful for Jim, his great staff and coaches, and the awesome community here. Merry Christmas everyone!
I am still going through the Proven Private Label and CES Videos at the moment. They are truly inspirational. What I like about Jim and especially his followers is they are real people looking to make a difference but beyond that……the people that are successful care about the success of others. Not sure how Jim found me but glad he did. His content and ideas work. He and his group are genuine and not inflated with pride and boasting. Jim listens and truly cares. So glad I took his coaching.
I have been tinkering with selling online for just over a year. There are so many programs, services and products out there that have a lottery winning approach, “Buy this 37 dollar WordPress plugin and scoop up traffic and sales”. I bought Jim’s Proven Amazon Course several months ago because it sounded good but I never really got into the content. I saw a recent release from some online gurus selling a course on how to make money on Amazon but the course was very expensive. I went back to Jim’s course I had already purchased and started going through the material. I listened to an audio interview Jim did with two of his partners. The woman on the call said she focuses on media, books, DVDs, CDs and even VHS. I already have an Amazon account so I looked around t he house for some interesting books even some of my kids old text books and I went to the local good will and picked up some books. In less than a week I have sold 7 books and made about 319.00. I am so hooked! This from just spending a little time with Jim’s material and a few hours getting the books and uploading to Amazon.
Jim, I appreciate you so much. In your recent interview with Brett (ProvenSourcing.com), you said that once you grasp this business model, you see “dollar bills blowing around in the wind.” That is so true! I can’t go anywhere now without seeing opportunities!
Here’s two stories for you of how your teaching has changed my life:
Three months ago, I attended an auction at our local hardware store. (Bought a printer for $35 and sold it on eBay for $200.) One of the items that didn’t sell was a fifth wheel RV. I approached the owner of the store a few days later, told him that I sell stuff online and asked if he wanted to sell his RV through me. He gave me two fifth wheels, a van and four pieces of equipment to sell for him. I’ve sold three pieces of equipment, for a total of $9850 and just five minutes ago, I sold one of the fifth wheels for $14000!
After listening to you and Barrington (in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course), I started selling a quasi-local product (yes, it’s quasi-local…long story) on Amazon. There were already two listings, but no sellers. I created ten more listings for this product, only one of them FBA. In three months, I have shipped 20 orders for this product, ranging in price from $9.75 to $244.50. All I am doing is buying them from my local grocery store when they sell. To give you an example of profit margin, I shipped a ten pound order this week. Sale price – $89.75, my cost – $37.16! After Amazon fees, my net profit was $32.60.
I will share the product with you, but only you, because I AM THE ONLY SELLER!! Here it is (**product removed to protect Jeff**)
So…thank you for your encouragement, your integrity and for building a team of high quality partners. I am honored to be considered one of your crew.
Grace and Peace,
Hey, Jim. The reason I am here is that I should acknowledge you’re one of those whose advice do really help me out concerning developing commercial web projects. I live in Ukraine and work as a Web project director. I know my English is not that good, but the only words I need right now is Thank you for the work you do. I have read 4 books of yours, and I didn’t regret a single minute while reading them although time is money 🙂
Let me start by saying I sincerely wish I had known about this amazing program when I started researching work at home options a few years ago. The Proven Amazon Course and the Jim Cockrum Coaching program are nothing short of outstanding! There is absolutely no limit to how far you can grow this business if you are willing to put forth the effort and take massive action on what you learn. The business model is simply brilliant! It’s not a difficult business to learn and operate and it actually becomes quite addictive when you really get it going! My advice for anyone looking to start a business from home is to purchase the Proven Amazon Course TODAY and get involved with the wonderful people over at Jim Cockrum Coaching! Do what they say, work consistently, and you will succeed with this wonderful program! Happy Sourcing!
Jim, I just want to say that EVERYTHING that I’ve purchased from you WORKS. Your listbuildingclass.com course, the Silent Sales Machine book ,the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course and the ‘My Silent Team’ site is beyond packed with valuable information, worth way more than the cost! I thank God for your wisdom & knowledge! You are awesome! God Bless you Jim!
Several years ago we mentored a delightful couple that wanted a home-based business, so we recommended they study the business courses by our friend Jim Cockrum. They followed our advice, Michael came home, and their family was then able to travel internationally together.

Last spring I signed up for the jimcockrumcoaching.com coaching program and N.B. [Nathan Bailey] worked with me. He was able to help me realize a profit in my online marketing business. Last year I made gross $35,000 selling ***.
I just listened to the interview with Brett [Barlett] recorded in Jan 2013 and I was impressed it has inspired me to take my business to the next level.
Earlier last year 2012 I bought about 500 ***** for $250 and I have sold a number of them having cleared probably more than $2,500 and still have about 25% that still need to be processed with 25% of them still available on Amazon. I have one book that is worth $1,000 though it has yet to sell. The Mentoring program has proven to be the best investment that I have made to date.
I have found success with eBay and Amazon….
I have been on your news letter since 2006 and I love every issue. Your latest SilentSalesMachine.com update was totally awesome!
I have learned a lot from you. After I was layed off from my last job in August of 2010, I decided to do my own thing and have been self employed since. Now I have never taken coaching from you, but the information you provide in your ssm book & from your newsletter, is always useful and complete, instead of useful yet, incomplete.
I think if a lot of Guru’s would follow that 1 lesson they would have a lot more success story’s as well.
I guess, I happen to lean towards your side of ideas too re SEO. It may be because SEO is still a mystery to me – “smoke & mirrors” maybe? So, I adopted two key strategies to build my online business:
- email strategy and
- build my subscriber base to ensure recurring revenues.
These two approaches have allowed me to jack my job, so I now work full-time on my online business. The journey started when I picked up this book (SilentSalesMachine) when it became more obvious to me that if I viewed ebay as one of the best marketing tools out there I could attract more customers to my online shops (not just my ebay shop). The model seems to work great,and without having to get involved in SEO…
The problem I face is letting go to replace myself ( I am truly a one man band ) and learning how to build and interact with an email list.
…Sales each yr. are over 100K. Then PAC…Christmas last year was awesome and this year will be even better. Next came..LIT. I am now able to source inventory without seeing or touching the product. Just wait for deposits from Amazon.
Jim, thank you so much for having Brett [Bartlett] on and the interview. It is because of that I went ahead and purchased the PAC Course. I have been selling on Amazon casually for years but decided to take Bretts advice and try out FBA. I lost my job and we are on the verge of loosing our home but I feel there is such great potential with FBA and it has given me hope and that alone is something that has helped. I feel God led me to Brett and your course and my goal is to be able to get caught up on payments and to create an income for my family of 4 children with one due in Feb making 5 children and to help my wife. I was in tears as I listen to you and Brett and how you have helped people grow an income and bring fathers home. I am a wreck and you are the first I have shared this too but I feel that hope is here and I want to thank you and Brett for all your help. More than you can realize. We had a great December for our first 30 days with almost $4k in gross sales. I am sorry to jump all over the place but I felt I needed to reach out and share and say thank you.
I do not know what lies ahead but have hope. :0).
–Harry – PAC student
I want to mention that thanks to you Jim my husband and I have been making a very nice income since the beginning of 2011.
Wishing you and your family all of the Lords’ blessings every day of your life.
My very best and please say hi to Nathan if you speak with him.

In November you granted me access to the Proven Amazon Course. I retired on 1 Feb. I have made, gross, $1500.00 with Ebay. I needed to take my time and start off with something you had suggested in another course of yours. I believe Amazon will be better but what Ebay did was get me motivated. Military collectables are big so I was able because of my many years of picking up old military items, I was able to make a nice profit with Ebay. Amazon is next for me this month. I will write you again to let you know where I am at. I hope you get Bill Gates rich because you have it going on. Thanks.
I gotta give you credit for my story. You are the one who showed me eBay and how to harness it by driving traffic to my site as well as YouTube etc. My efforts have now spurred a great cult following of my business. My thanks to you.
We are kicking butt! We developed a nice track record on eBay and we are now taking orders for my “Build-A-Bug” program. We are running our business with a year and a half wait time. People want us to build a bug just for them!

I have found great guidance from OfflineBiz.com and really enjoy helping offline businesses get online. Offering marketing, websites, email campaign management and other services has been a great income stream for our family. I want to thank you for being there with this information, membership site and resources.
A client I picked up early on in my offline biz stream was our local Coldwell Banker Real Estate franchise. That one client turned into many as the broker is also the founding member of the largest law firm in our county and we picked up that side of the business too along with several Realtors.
What happened today, takes the cake. I met with the Broker today to discuss some new marketing ideas I had and he stopped me in the middle of my speech to ask me a question.
He asked, “Instead of continuing this contract deal with you for marketing, how do you feel about coming on board with our company as a partner in the business and handling the online marketing just as you are doing now? The only difference, you will be earning 6% of overall income in the company as opposed to contracted income.” This attorney/broker and I have found a real kinship in our business philosophies and values. He has grown to like me and wants my influence in the company weekly on a more consistent basis.
I didn’t have to think long, this company, a new franchise in our area, projects 1.5 million in commission revenue this year, and that’s a pretty payday at 6% even after company expenses. I am already earning about $1100 per month from this one client contact, but now will be earning significantly more with little extra effort than I give now. Although, I imagine after signing partnership agreements next week, I will certainly have a greater interest and likely spend more energy there.
I wanted to share this with you personally first, before posting to see if I can offer any testimonial for you on this as well. Liquidation, Offline Biz, and my small membership mailing list are all helping to make our dreams come true. You lit a fire under this frustrated entrepreneur, and I am grateful.
I realize this income may not be a fortune, or even compelling to some, but for us, it is a significant blessing and it’s money being made in the real world with no hype or gimmicks. And from only one stream of income and only one client.
Thanks so much again, your provided resources have given us the tools we need to change our future. We won’t forget it!
You produce the best quality content on marketing. I’ve read so many business books this year and I’d say yours (101FreeMarketing.com) gave the most immediately actionable info that didn’t cost me a bombshell.
Thanks for the tip about not relying on your Facebook page! I would never have thought to use my Facebook popularity to build my list. In fact, I found your book on Free Marketing just when I created my Facebook page. At the time, I was so excited to see my Facebook numbers rising that it was satisfying in itself!! What can I say, I’m easy to please. Any way, I had 38 Facebook likes at the beginning of November, now I am 200 shy of 10,000!! My mailing list has gone from zero to just over 1,000!! I know that these are great results because I have been dabbling in two other niches where I haven’t had nearly so much success. I’m enjoying every minute of interacting with my fans.
Now this “popular highlights” tip, I know that’s going to come in handy.
Literally, you and Mequoda are the only marketing experts I currently hold as precious right now. Every email has to be bookmarked to be read!
