3. eCom Success Academy by Adrian Morrison
Course length: 39 hours and 34 minutes. Price: $2,495
Who Is Adrian Morrison?
He's considered one of the top Facebook marketers in the world who has generated millions of dollars to promote his own eCom stores and affiliate partners.
He's even been hired as a consultant for other multi million dollar companies. It also helps that he has a close connection to the actual Facebook Internal Advertising team.
Adrian Morrison's ESA course was the very first Shopify course, and still considered by most to be the best Shopify dropshipping course in 2021.
It's a comprehensive course that truly covers all the dropshipping bases.
I like the different up-sell plugins he teaches, which proved to increase sales for me in the past.
Adrian also covers FB Advertising in superb detail. Facebook is incredibly important for dropship product marketing and ESA lays a solid foundation for you to build on.
Unfortunately, the course does fall short in the manual bidding department though, and that is an aspect of FB Advertising that can make or break your business.
It would also have been useful to get marketing lessons on Google Ads, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, Snapchat... Some of the other courses do cover advertising on these platforms.
Apart from this, eCom Success Academy receives a 4/5 rating (and not higher), because the course only had one update in two years.
If you initially spent a million dollars on development, then surely you're going to keep investing in your course as time goes by..?
Despite this though, it is still one of the better drop shipping courses out there, as most of the content is still relevant, thanks to the ESA 2019 course update.
Adrian also offers free tips and tutorials on his YouTube channel and offers the Profit Power Hour, where you can spend an hour LIVE With Adrian Morrison everyTuesday. This is a great added resource where you gain insights into his stats and strategies through the "backdoor" - and it's 100% Free.

4.) eCom Elites by Franklin Hatchett
Course length: 34 hours and 32 minutes. Price: $197
Who Is Franklin Hatchett?
Franklin has been in the dropshipping game since way back in 2009 and is one of the authorities on the dropshipping business method.
Now he's got a huge following and this course to teach others how to make life changing money.
eCom Elites Course Details
Yes, you read correctly. It only costs $197...
Does that mean eCom Elites is a terrible course?
Not at all!
eCom Elites is a lengthy, well-rounded course with the most comprehensive course content out there.
From the very start, Franklin assures you that he wants his students to get their money's worth, and he certainly delivers on this promise.
There are some areas that lack much-needed detail, and in others you feel the content is a little too "padded", but overall you cannot fault this course.
In fact, Franklin goes out of his way to include content you won't find in other courses.
If you're strapped for cash, but you are convinced that dropshipping is still the way to go in 2021 (in my opinion it's not, but more on that later), then this course is the real deal.
You might have to supplement it later with another course, but for starting out as a dropshipper, eCom Elites is recommended.
He also shares tons of free information about dropshipping on his YouTube channel.
So if you're unsure whether eCom Elites is for you, you can get a free taste for it by watching a few of his YouTube videos.

5.) The Ecomm Clubhouse by Sarah Chrisp/Wholesale Ted
Course length: 9 hours and 27 minutes Price: $67 per month
Who Is Sarah Chrisp?
Sarah is an online entrepreneur well known for her YouTube channel, Wholesale Ted.
She's making somewhere around at least $90K per month from all of her online marketing strategies and has almost a million subscribers on YouTube.
She's definitely legit.
Sarah and the Wholesale Ted team offer:
Value for money is certainly here. You can probably finish this course within a few short weeks or days, depending on your free time - the course is only nine and a half hours. Depending on your available time and pace, the course could cost you only $69. That's a steal!
With only 40 videos and less than 10 hours content, the course is purely aimed at beginners.
So, once you've worked through the course, you probably won't need to go back for any updated course content. You can always upgrade to a more advanced course from someone else...

6.) eBay Dropshipping Titans by Paul Joseph
Course details: 75+ videos Price: $297
Who Is Paul Joseph?
Paul J. Lipsky is a Youtuber and dropshipping guru selling courses around the retail arbitrage model.
He touts earning six-figures but with the tiny profit margins, it seems a bit of a stretch.
Perhaps he's including the course sales and affiliate marketing revenue from his van life YT channel too.
eBay Dropshipping Titans Course details:
Here's what you need to know...
Firstly, Paul is 100% focused on the technical 'know how' of eBay dropshipping.
The videos take you step-by-step through getting listings up on eBay.
Secondly, this makes for A LOT of information delivered in a fairly dull manner.
Only you know if that's going to be a big problem.
If you're not the type who love lots of technical details, you might find yourself on the struggle bus.
Want to know Paul's Secret Weapon?
Paul advocates heavily for using DSM Tool to handle all the heavy lifting.
It scrapes Amazon for top-selling products and make purchasing them easier.
If you're using other market places, you can still use DSM Tool to create your listings.
eBay Dropshipping Titans has a Facebook Group But...
It not really a community.
There are some desperate questions from random folk who are stuck.
But there isn't any on-going training or interaction going on.
I prefer a FB group that has tons of info I can dig through for ideas and hacks.
Paul's Trick for Erasing Negative Reviews...is it Real?
With so many moving pieces and the packages arriving in a competitors packing, you're bound to end up with some bad reviews here and there.
It will impact your ranking when buyers are searching for something you offer.
If it becomes a big enough problem, you may even find you're account shutdown.
Paul has a section on how to get eBay's customer service reps to remove negative reviews.
I will say that it's a lot of work and you have a limit of 5 'requests' a month.

7.) Drop Ship Lifestyle by Anton Kraly
Course length: 27 hours and 12 minutes. Price: $2,997 Premium / $8,997 Ultimate (D4U)
Who Is Anton Kraly?
Anton definitely qualifies as an experienced drop shipping--that's how he spells it-- coach. He's been doing dropshipping since 2012 and has made millions selling his online courses.
According to available info confirmed by Anton himself, he made $3.68 million in revenue in three years before he sold his most successful dropshipping business.
Since then it seems he has been solely focused on the course, Drop Ship Lifestyle, which brought in $3.5 million in 2016 alone...
Anton definitely knows what he's talking about as he guides you through every step of his version of the drop shipping way.
Anton has a unique take on drop shipping, which is why Drop Ship Lifestyle (DSL) is such a popular course, and you'll see a lot of Dropship lifestyle reviews from people who pulled the trigger and purchased the course for this very reason.
It proposes high-ticket drop shipping, as opposed to the traditional dropshipping approach.
It's different because you don't:
I like Kraly's approach.
It's much more appealing than selling low-ticket products where you have to sell huge quantities before making a decent profit.
You also get to specialize in your niche.
You should consider this course if:

Dropshipping is OK, but Lead Gen is Better, Here's Why
Yes, you can make some profit with dropshipping but in the long term, it's just not worth it, in my opinion.
For one, it's expensive to start up.
The paid ads you need to run to promote your products also gets expensive because more often than not, your first ad won't be an immediate winner.
Ask any ads expert and they'll tell you you've got to split test.
I'm just not messing with dropshipping because I can earn a much more passive income in my lead generation business and spend more time doing things I want to do.
The lead gen process is a fairly simple one.
After joining the lead generation coaching program in 2014 and getting to work, I've been able to build out over 50 lead gen sites.
Here's an example of one site that's been making me money ever since 2015.
That one site has been paying me $2000 like clock work each month ever since.
Scaling with lead gen is also so much easier than with dropshipping.
Let's be honest, you should want to be scaling so that you can earn more money.
After all, you get into business to become financially free, right?
I recommend you get into lead generation and begin building out your digital properties.
Here are all the reasons why it's a good idea...

Hope to see you on the inside!
