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.


ESA Course details:

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.

Pros & Cons of Private Label Masters

Pros
  • Superb Facebook ads training
  • Adrian is a proven successful dropshipper
  • Good case studies to learn from
  • eCom shop promotion strategies included for members
  • Some unique strategies that you don't hear too often like buying suppliers gifts
Cons
  • No Google ads training
  • Adrian isn't always active in the group or accessible
  • Facebook bidding is the only advertising medium taught (is it smart to have all your eggs in one basket?)
  • Could use more training on selling the brand

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.

 Pros & Cons of eCom Elites

Pros
  • Price is only $197
  • Comprehensive content with over 34 hours of video lessons
  • Real world examples, not just theory
  • Incredible amount of content for the price
Cons
  • It is still based on methods and tools that proved successful in the past which might not be as effective in 2021.
  • Franklin also teaches affiliate marketing, I prefer a coach who specializes and focuses on one business model
  • Not the best online business model in 2021
  • Very conservative approach to FB ad spend

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:

  • Over 9 hours of premium video training. It's not a lot of content, but I mean...you're only paying $67/month until you're done with the course. You can probably finish the course within a month (two months tops) depending on how quickly you work through the material.
  • You will learn how to create brand new and unique products with their print-on-demand training video library.
  • "Learn how to find & sell hyper-viral, super-popular products with Dropshipping, even if you have a low start-up budget!"
  • Sarah teaches different, scientifically proven, sales psychology techniques to get customers to spend more money.
  • Unique videos that expand on their YouTube Channel tutorials. For example, the YT Channel video tutorial on SEO is 34 minutes long, whereas in the club, it is over 2 hours long.
  • You gain access to lessons not available on the Wholesale Ted YouTube channel (an important detail, because if you're paying for a course, you'll want to know that you're not getting the same info you could find for free)
  • Sarah will teach you her strategies for getting free traffic and customers from Google using SEO. (Although, truth be told, it is very basic)
  • All the video tutorials have English captions for students who don't use English as a first language. It's a nice touch for foreign students.

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... 

Pros & Cons of The Ecomm Clubhouse

Pros
  • Sarah and the Wholesale Ted team are well-known and very respected in the dropshipping community
  • Supporting PDF documents for every lesson. More courses should do this!
  • A tick box after every lesson for you to complete as you progress
  • An excellent price, considering you can work through the 9.5 hours of course content fairly quickly. In theory, you can end up paying only $67 for the course if you don't care about the community or support
Cons
  • Course content is lacking in product research. 
  • Lacking in supplier research
  • Sarah only focuses on Facebook Ads

6.) eBay Dropshipping Titans by Paul Joseph

Course details:  75+ videos     Price: $297

logo for dropshipping titans

Who Is Paul Joseph?

paul joseph of dropshipping titans

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?

DSM tool dashboard

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.

The problem?

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.

 Pros & Cons of eBay Dropshipping Titans

Pros
  • Very detailed
  • Step by step walk through
  • DSM Tool recommendation is gold
  • There's a limited Facebook group
  • Some unique strategies that you don't hear too often like buying suppliers gifts
Cons
  • No Google ads training
  • Adrian isn't always active in the group or accessible
  • Facebook bidding is the only advertising medium taught (is it smart to have all your eggs in one basket?)
  • Could use more training on selling the brand

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...


DROP SHIP LIFESTYLE Course details:

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:

  • Hunt for fads/trending products all the time
  • Sell cheap products (which means fewer returns/queries)
  • Deal with Chinese vendors/manufacturers (which means fewer problems with shipping, quality, etc.)

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:

  • You do not want to follow the rest of the dropshipping crowd
  • You're down with selling high-end products to the upper-middle class, rather than cheap, mass-produced trending items, as Anton suggests.
  • If you prefer the strategy of selling 1 x $1,000 item than 1,000 x $1 items. Why? Less effort and more profit!
  • You like Done-For-You options because you don't have time to do all the legwork yourself. Anton's team offers DFY services to get you up and running in no time.

 Pros & Cons of Private Label Masters

Pros
  • Focuses on high-ticket dropshipping
  • Training gets updated yearly
  • Webinars and annual live events (DSL Retreat)
  • Private Facebook community
Cons
  • Course content is lacking in some regards
  • Much more difficult to find high-end suppliers
  • Extremely expensive for what you get regardless the package you choose (Premium or Ultimate)
  • Poor product research content

Dropshipping is OK, but Lead Gen is Better, Here's Why

Dropshipping

  • There are limited niches and to be successful you should start with trendy products
  • Paid traffic is expensive, risky and requires a lot of time and money
  • Anyone can copy your products easily
  • Profit margins are not as high
  • Shopify can freeze your store/account at any point

Lead Generation

  • Opportunities are found in every zip code
  • Much more affordable to Start 
  • Requires Skills to Rank on Google
  • Higher Profit Margin with lower overhead
  • You own & control your websites
  • Once sites are ranked, your process & income are passive

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.

Lead gen model

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.

local lead generation example

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?

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...

Get on a call with us and see if this is something you think is for you.

No obligation.

Hope to see you on the inside!

Peace.

  1. Personally, I think Dropshipping is better than Lead Generation as I have tried both and from Dropshipping, I make on average 83k a month which is just over 1 million dollars a year. Great review though and good luck.

    1. Blake, thanks for the insight. How many years of experience do you have and what kind of dropshipping are you doing (AliExpress, high-ticket, branded, etc)? I think for newbies, it’s hard to find success in dropshipping unless you have the resources to true eCommerce. I’m sure there’s always going to be an outlier here and there though. Appreciate you sharing your experience.

  2. This report is very helpful for someone who's considering dropshipping. Where would Dan Vas' new Shopify Freedom course place on this list?

  3. I’ve spent so much time watching these dropshipping videos and subscribing to their channels. They paint a perfect scenario but want all this money upfront.
    Thank you so much for the content. It was extremely helpful!
    I want to become a part of your team!

  4. Wow! That's an exhaustive list with an honest review. Personally, I feel that the Dropship lifestyle is good because of the fact that they focus a lot on brand building rather than just bringing in random stuff from Chinese vendors. But in any case, the lead generation approach is cool too. I would like to learn more about it.

  5. Hey Ippei, could you write something about Dropservicing, please?
    This biz model doesn’t demand a large investment and if we choose to we can start it off with zero investment.
    Is it worth getting into?

  6. Hi Ippei,

    Great article. I’m a newbie when it comes to e commerce and am just about to venture into dropshipping. I’m having second thoughts now having read your article.

    I am from a relatively small town in Ireland with probably only a hundred local businesses or so. Is the whole Lead Gen biz for a more larger market/population spread? Was just wondering.

    Many thanks,
    Brendan Toomey

  7. Superb detailed unbiased review thank you.
    You mentioned that “Especially when it comes to scaling FB ads and preventing ad accounts from getting shut down. Each coach had a unique strategy that I learned from.”
    Which ones are particularly focused on the prevention of FB account shut down?

  8. Nice post!

    Where in your opinion would be a good starting point for getting up to speed on all the models, and up-skilling on digital marketing/ e-commerce in general?

      1. Hello sir,

        Can Lead Gen work in the UK?
        I’ve seen this has been around more since 2017 as I’ve seen the Facebook reviews, will this work right now in 2020?

  9. Awesome post buddy!

    I wonder whether you have ever tried the blueprint of Daniel Spurman? I am planning to try his blueprint but I would like to see what an expert think of his course.

    Thank you!

  10. Thanks for breaking down each of these courses. I’ve been looking to dabble in drop-shipping, but truthfully, your lead generation business model seems to actually be more passive. I’ll definitely be looking into that in the coming days.

  11. This is a great article. I’m super interested in dropshipping, but I’m kinda concerned that it isn’t a long-term option since market trends change so much.

    Any suggestions?

  12. What is a dropship?
    Suppose you do a site where you sell some products but you do not have a capital to sell the product by purchasing the product and you do not have the right to run the whole program. You can still do this business. In order to put your own product in simple words, the customer entered your store and ordered to buy the product, now you buy this product from a supplier and send it to your customer. This system is a dropship.

    In a word, the drop shipping product from the wholesale dealer directly to the customer is called Drop Shipping. Simply put, you make a contract with the supplier / producer. Then create a store (e-commerce web site) online with information about the supplier / producer’s products that you will work with.
    If you order something on your site, you will tell the order details to your supplier / producer. He will send packages using your company’s logs, addresses and so on. The buyer understands that you have sent him.

    How to Start Drop Shipping Business?
    If you want to sell something, the first thing you need to do is shop / store. So also for online. You have to do a shop. Now let’s take a kind of store. So also online. There is a ready shop called Shopify which you can rent in month to month. But Shopify’s rent is much more. That’s a good idea to make an e-commerce website yourself. Because
    You can rent a Shopify for 1 year, earning a lot of money with the E-Commerce website. Cost on own website is less.

    The main things needed for drop shipping business are:
    Domain + hosting
    A beautiful e-commerce website theme
    Aldripship Plugins
    Ali-Inspector Software
    These 4 things can be started in the business.

    How is it possible to earn through drop shipping?
    Like all other businesses, profits and success levels depend on some things – the most noticeable of the trader’s fine observations for the selection of goods. But through a long-term plan, it is possible to build a drop shipping business that is about ten times the size of the hard work and the right job.
    It is possible to run a long-term, successful and profitable drop shipping business by creating your own e-commerce site. This amount depends on you. You will get the return on the amount you spend.
    Drop Shipping is not a magic formula – it is possible to achieve major success through significant work and time. But this is a durable and risky online business.

    Why do you do DashShipping?
    Do not invest millions of dollars in drop shipping.
    Instead of ordering purchase orders that are in place, you can only buy one product.
    No products are being sold for you before
    It is possible to run drop shipping business only with a laptop and internet connection.

    You have to know the things that you do to dropships.

    Do you need a payment gateway for the DashShipping business?

  13. hello.
    Is the e commerce blur print of tai lopez worth considering??
    Please let me know because I have limited money to invest in this knowledge and I want to make sure that I utilize each and every penny I am spending on this course.

  14. Hello,
    I am looking to get started in some sort of online business as a second income. What is lead generation exactly? And is it harder to learn and get into than building a shopify store? If possible would you help me out one on one for a course fee? Please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Sam
