★★★ Find INSANELY PROFITABLE & EXCITING Amazon FBA Product Ideas That NOBODY ELSE Knows About in As Little as 24 Hours (2021 Update). ★★★

(This works EVEN IF you’ve tried before and failed or have ZERO experience.)

Did you know the #1 reason Amazon Sellers fail is picking the wrong product to sell?

It’s true!

This is such a big problem that some sellers lose literally THOUSANDS of dollars and waste MONTHS of their life finding & launching a product that were destined to fail from the beginning.

The problem new sellers face is that 99% of the information about Amazon product research on Youtube, Facebook Groups, articles, etc. is COMPLETELY FALSE!

Online gurus who’ve never sold a single thing on Amazon in their life fake screenshots and tell you to use the EXACT SAME tools in the EXACT SAME ways as literally 99% of other new sellers.

They say things like, “Look at how much revenue this product can make you every month!” without mentioning how INSANELY COMPETITIVE that particular market is or how little profit you will actually deposit into your bank account every month.

This is what would cause you to waste THOUSANDS of dollars and MONTHS of your life on a product you thought would free your from your 9-5 grind just to find yourself in a worse position with less time, less money and less confidence than ever before.

Luckily for you there’s a solution to find THOUSANDS of ACTUALLY PROFITABLE, low-competition products to sell on Amazon.

Let me introduce you to the Amazon Product Research Secrets Course.

In this course you will learn…

  • 6 DEADLY product types that leave new sellers BANKRUPT & how to effortlessly avoid them like a pro! (Lecture 8)

  • SECRET #5 - Find product ideas WITHOUT spending one cent on overpriced research tools. (Lecture 12)

  • Afraid to sell on Amazon? No worries! Rake in OUTRAGEOUS PROFITS by finding & selling product ideas to starving Amazon Sellers. (Lecture 2)

  • Find products that get you EXCITED to get out of bed every single morning! (Lecture 11)

  • Ethically steal RIDICULOUSLY LUCRATIVE product ideas from $1,00,000+ Amazon Sellers. (Lecture 18)

  • How to position your product as the PREMIUM BRAND in your market to DOMINATE your competition for JUICIER returns.

  • Know EXACTLY how much profit you can REALISTICALLY make from your Amazon product every month down to the penny. (Lecture 32)


Now, why do I (Sumner) have a single ounce of credibility to teach this topic?

First of all, I’m an actual Amazon Seller that generates a full time income finding and selling HIGHLY profitable products on Amazon and I’ve helped literally HUNDREDS of brand-new Amazon Sellers do the exact same.

Don’t take my word for it though.

Here are just a few raving fans of this course…

★★★★★I didn't even know where to start, but everything seems so simple right now! One of the best classes, if not the best, that I have ever taken.” - Karo L

★★★★★Sumner is THE best Amazon FBA teacher out there. Most people charge several thousand dollars for the same or even less stuff. Sumner is super passionate and caring. Over the screen, I can feel his positiveness and kindness to help us succeed. I'm going to move on to the next module and I'll see you there!” - Turvey H

★★★★★Thankful to have found Sumner's course! His positive energy and insights were helpful to give me confidence to get going on product research, and I am going to continue with his next course as well.” - Erin G

★★★★★Sumner Hobart is an amazing teacher! I have been watching Udemy courses you tube videos and almost all of them are the within 2 or 3 different types of videos which all copy cat each other. This is original content that as far as I am aware you will not see anywhere else. Thanks for sharing your knowledge Sir.” - Mike T

★★★★★I was looking for an overview in the fba market and the possibilities it holds for private sellers. i am a photographer, filmmaker and graphic designer. So this was gold for me. I can do the whole marketing and product design myself and will definitely try this out. I was listening to the course and i already started researching products. I already have a list of possible products. I am very excited. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I wish you all the best. Will also check out the other courses right ahead :)” - Tobias H

★★★★★Amazing class and I feel like I have learned from A-Z on how to find my first product. You convinced me to absolutelly start investing in this, where 2 days ago I was not even aware about it. If I may give a remark below: It can be really confusing on how to proceed after finishing the course, so maybe a slide on bullet points for the product research and the usage of the tools with each step along the way. Thank you again and good luck to you!!!” - Ana M

★★★★★Absolutely loved this course! The amount of valuable knowledge is huge and it covers all the aspects you need. It's very clear and the steps are easily actionable. Many thanks for sharing that much information, it definitely makes a huge difference from all the other options out there on YouTube and other platforms. Will definitely use everything I learnt from this course. The only downside: if you have already a bit of an idea about Amazon FBA, some moments in the course can be a bit too redundant, but speeding up the videos to 1.5x helps, as you don't want to skip that altogether.” - Lulia S

★★★★★My dream sense a little kid has always been to be different and not to follow the typical 9 to 5 with college debt and a 401k retirement plan. I started with engineering in college and soon realized i just wanted to be my own boss and my own individual. I later transitioned into an entrepreneurship degree and soon realized why am i here and not out there doing something to improve myself and my career. I've always been scared because I don’t know how to start anything and I don’t have some big brained plan, I’m just a kid with a dream. This Course really just proves to me that you can live a normal life while still working on your wild dreams. Ive been wanting to start my own Amazon career for over a year now and finding this course was absolutely the best thing i could've done. Sumner’s energy, positivity, clarity and transparency has really aloud me to improve and learn new skills that i can utilize to build my career and has really given me hope as to whats attainable and how much opportunity there really is out there for people like me. It seems difficult because everything you can think about is most likely already a product or a service and just makes you feel like you cant bring originality to products but he has definitely inspired me and shown me how much potential and opportunity there is with every single product. Great work, Highly recommend!” - Gustavo S

Students: 576, Price:  Paid

For many students, academic research is one of the most unstructured endeavors they undertake. Due to the nature of research, students are often faced with ambiguous situations along their journey, where they must make decisions on many fronts, including the exact scope, set of models to be used as their theoretical bases, qualitative or quantitative approach, data collection strategy, types of analysis to conduct, etc. At the forefront of knowledge, researchers often feel they are looking into a vast empty darkness. These are just some of the reasons a large proportion, 90 percent in some institutions, of the students drop out of their postgraduate research-based program.

Introduction to Quantitative Research Methods

Doing quantitative research : research process & design, data collection (surveys, experiments), data analysis methods

Created by Charles R Lawoko - Professional Statistician, Consultant, Academic


Students: 80, Price: $39.99

Students: 80, Price:  Paid

This is an introductory course for people interested in learning about quantitative research methods. It is aimed at researchers and postgraduate students doing or planning to do quantitative research.

We start with an overview of the quantitative research process and discuss the main components which include research questions, research hypothesis, research design, data collection , and  data analysis. We discuss the differences between research question and research hypothesis,  and overview the important parts and  expectations of research design (including ethics considerations). 

From there we move on to data collection methods, where we focus mainly on survey sampling methods and designed experiments for collecting data. For sample surveys, you will learn how to use (i) five probability sampling techniques (simple random sampling, systematic sampling,  cluster sampling, stratified sampling and multi-stage sampling), and (ii) five non-probability sampling techniques (voluntary response sampling, convenience sampling , quota sampling, judgemental sampling, snowball/chain-referral sampling). You will learn  how to use each of these methods, when to use them,  and also their  pros and cons .  We also study designs of experiments, and explain where and how how theye are used. We discuss the main principles to consider when designing an experiment, such as replication, control, randomization, blinding , lurking variables. We then discuss examples of different types of designed experiments such as completely randomized designs, randomized block designs, and factorial designs. As part of data collection methods, we also consider the important factors to be taken into consideration for calculating the required sampling sizes for you study, such as  (i)the levels of confidence you want in your results, (ii)margins of errors, (iii)the important differences you may want to detect using your planned data analysis methods, and (iv)the complexities of data analysis methods you plan to use.

From data collection methods,we  move on to overview data analysis methods.  We do not actually learn how to do data analysis in this course. However,you get introduced to some groups of data analysis methods and the types of statistical methodologies which are used within each group of data analysis methods. The purpose of this is for you to become  aware of the possible statistical analysis methods which you could use for your data analysis. 

The main groups of data analytics techniques we consider are (i)Exploratory Data Analysis, (ii)Dependence Analysis Techniques, (iii)Inter-Dependence Analysis Techniques, and (iv) Predictive Analysis Techniques. In Exploratory Data Analysis Techniques we overview   many of the common summary statistics and  visual techniques for data exploration,  and  for understading the structures in your data (eg pie charts, line charts, box-plots, x-y plots, histograms, etc). In  Dependence Analysis Techniques, we overview several of the most common dependence analysis methods.....such as regression analysis, analysis of variance,  linear models, generalised linear models, discriminant analysis, structural equations modelling, conjoint analysis, hierarchical linear models, canonical correlations, decision trees, artificial neural networks, and support vector machines. In Inter-Dependence techniques, we overview several techniques for understanding unstructured (and/or hidden) relationships among variables, objects, or individuals..... such as cluster analysis, principal components analysis, factor analysis, multidimensional scaling, correspondence analysis, artificial neural networks. In Prediction Analysis techniques, we identify several of the previously mentioned data analysis techniques which can also be used for prediction purposes...such as regression analysis, linear models, generalised linear models, discriminant analysis, decisiom trees, artificial neural networks, and suport vector machines. It is important to emphasize that, although we give examples of how some of these techniques are used,  you will not be learning how to use  these techniques in this course. That would  be covered in a different  'higher-level' course (and not an introdutory course in research methods, like this one).

In all Sections of the course, we shall review and discuss many examples of published research articles in peer-reviewed journals, which have used the techniques we learn about in the course. This is for you to learn by example (from these papers), and also for you to see that what we learn or cover in this course are indeed being used by other researchers like yourself (...and partially to validate the contents of this course).

We finish the course with a look-back at what  has been  covered in the course, and I also introduce two statistical/data analysis courses which I am working on right now which are (i)Applied Linear Regression Analysis (should be available by mid 2021) , and (ii)Applied Logistic Regression Analysis.
