There are a lot of different Amazon FBA courses to choose from and Nine University is one of them.
After checking out some reviews to see if it was legit I wanted to know more.
The two creators of this course Kale Abrahamson and Taylor Hiott set out to shortcut the time it takes to learn the ropes and get up and running with an Amazon FBA business.
So is it really worth the cost?
Who Are Taylor Hiott and Kale Abrahamson (KT Nine)
I remember coming across their videos while looking for different ways to make money online selling on Amazon.
At first they just seemed like all the other marketers that I had come across pumping their courses.
But I did get sucked in and wondered if these guys were legit or not.
After doing a little research I discovered that they did make some good money selling on Amazon with the FBA business model.
The actual amount though I could never find.
Are they millionaires and if so how may millions of dollars did they make?
I also discovered that Kale Abrahamson was a successful basketball player in college.
You can checkout some of his skills in this video.
He attended Northwestern and Drake University which tells me that he is a smart kid as well.
Being an athlete tells me that Kale had discipline and had to be a goal setter to reach this level.
Basically he conditioned himself to be successful in life.
What Is Nine University About
Getting back to the course itself the goal is to teach newbies how to start and be successful running an Amazon FBA business.
If your not familiar with the FBA business model I will give you a quick breakdown here.
- Source products to sell in bulk
- Send inventory to Amazon fulfillment centers
- Sell your products through Amazon or any other channel
- Amazon packs and ships the order for you to your customer
This sounds like the perfect business model doesn’t?
Well although it seems simple there are a lot of moving parts that need to be learned before jumping in and wasting $1000’s of dollars.
This is where Nine University Amazon FBA training comes in.
The course is broken down into different segments with a total of about 200 videos.
Your basically learning how to source products to sell on Amazon and other small details such as:
- Creating listings
- Different shipping box options
- Using PPC ( pay per click for traffic)
- Facebook Ads
- Using an autoresponder
- Using 3rd party services to launch and promote your products
Amazon FBA has been around for a number of years and there have been others such as Kevin David, Alex Becker and the guys behind Amazing Selling Machine promoting their courses to teach you how to take advantage of this business model.
Comparing Nine University to the other guys it appears their course offers similar training and pricing.
How Much Does Nine University Cost
Like I said before there are a lot of moving parts when it comes to running an Amazon FBA business.
Most of the courses that I have reviewed start at about $1000 and go up from there with many topping out at $2000 to $3000.
The Nine University price comes in at $1997.
Now some might say this price is too high while others see it as worth it.
In order for it to be worth it you need to make sure that you actually take action and use what they teach.
If your just going to buy the training course and hope that there is a magic formula showing you how to make money then your going to be disappointed of course.
Don’t laugh I have seen this many times.
They also offer Nine University VIP which comes in at a cost close to $6,000.
Is KT Nine University Legit
Overall I would say that the course is legit and the guys behind the course have had some success selling on Amazon.
But you have to remember that this business is a grind.
Your not just going to sit there take a course and reap the financial rewards without learning stuff on your own as well.
Is There Any Bad Reviews
Of course there is going to bad some bad reviews.
Some people buy into these training courses thinking there is a magic formula hidden inside.
When they find out there is work that needs to be done and additional money that needs to be spent they call it a scam.
Your going to find people that have success with it and those that have not.
Looking at the different reviews about this course are going to give you what they call “paralysis of analysis”.
Here is an easy way to decide whether or not this is for you.
- Ask yourself if you have the $1997 available to pay for the cost of the course?
- If yes your next question will be do you have another couple thousand dollars to buy inventory?
- If yes then the next question will be do you have another couple thousand dollars to run advertising?
If you answer no to any of these questions then your going to have a hard time making the FBA business model work.
Your going to need a chunk of change to make it work as you can see.
The Amazon FBA business is a legitimate way to make money online but it is no longer as easy as it once was.
That is the reason that you see a lot of these guys creating and selling courses.
Kale and Taylor are smart guys and I am sure that they will continue to sell on Amazon and add more content to the Nine University Course as time goes on.
But if you plan to be an online entrepreneur your going to have to adjust with the times and not follow the herd so to speak.
In other words don’t get into selling the same cheap Chinese goods as everyone else hoping to make money on Amazon.
The people making money on Amazon using FBA are those that have unique products or products that others sellers will have a hard time getting.
Plus make sure that you have at least $5000 to $6000 minimum of money that you can use to get started.
Personally that is why I have been using the affililiate marketing business model to make money online.
