I've made some money with dropshipping but...
I guess the best question here would be: Is dropshipping still a good business to get into in 2020?
I compare dropshipping versus the lead generation business model which I've had a lot of success in as well.
But more on that later...Let's jump into Franklin's course!
eCom Elites Course Overview
Introduction to Franklin
Franklin Hatchett is yet another successful dropshipping guru who made it big online and then developed a course. He's made his money in online businesses and it all started with...
Yep, you guessed it: the dropshipping method.
Franklin started out making websites, ranking them and making some money off the advertising on the sites. He made some money, but it wasn't enough for the laptop lifestyle he wanted. (And let's be real, that's what we all want, right?)
So he tried affiliate marketing, where he earned a commission on selling other people's products. This worked great until the affiliate company closed down and he found himself right back at square one.
Along came dropshipping, which he ran with Facebook ads (similar to Jared Goetz), and BOOM! Success.
Well....not right away. And Franklin will be the first to tell you that real prosperity comes with time, dedication and hard work...
Success doesn't just happen overnight, but according to Franklin, anyone can get there by following these 3 simple steps:
Now you might be thinking, "Hold up...is he saying I need to give up my Netflix and chill?" Well...not exactly. He's just saying you might have to put it on pause for a while until you achieve the level of success that allows you to hit that play button again from your private jet. And judging by his YouTube channel which has over 174k subscribers, a lot of people are liking the sound of that philosophy...So let’s see if it works!
What to Expect in this Course
eCom Hacks is a course presented by Franklin Hatchett. One thing you'll probably notice right off the bat is Franklin's no-nonsense, get-to-the-point teaching style. And one of the huge perks about this course is that he actually shows you real world examples instead of just telling you what to do the entire time.
But you might be wondering, "What makes Franklin qualified to teach this stuff?"
Well, Franklin has been in the dropshipping game since way back in 2009, and has proven himself to be one of the authorities on this business method.
One thing that I appreciate about Franklin is that he's not one of those guys who acts like he invented the whole thing. According to him, dropshipping had become a thing about 5 years before he got into it, with the main player being a site called chinavasion.com (can you believe it?). So for anybody who's worried that dropshipping is just a trend, Franklin is here to tell you that that couldn't be further from the truth. It's been around for a while and will be here for years to come.
But before we get into the details of the course:
I’d like to mention that I am an actual dropshipper who has made a few 6-figure Shopify stores to date. So I have the
I even took a Shark Onesie store to $48K in 1 month. You can read more about how I did it here.
Getting 6-figure stores didn’t come easy. I definitely shed some blood, sweat and tears to figure out this dropship thing. I mean we're talking long days and even longer nights. I'm with Franklin on this one--success doesn't happen overnight; it takes time.
That being said, let's finally get to the goods...
Here's what you can expect from
Franklin goes into great detail on how to set up a successful Shopify store. He covers just about every aspect from the ground up, so there is a lot of information to cover, which is always a great thing if you ask me. I'd rather have an abundance of info than get stuck trying to fill in the blanks myself, you feel me?
Everybody loves samples, so lemme give you a little taste of what he gets into:
Once you purchase the course and get your eCom Elites login, you will have access to the whopping 34 hours and 32 minutes worth of videos (I told you it was a lot, papa don't lie). It's a very comprehensive course and will take a while to work through and implement.
The eCom Elites Course Breakdown
The course kicks off with an eCom Elites Members Welcome Video, presented by Franklin Hatchett him. He quickly tells you who he is and where he comes from--in case you couldn't place the accent, he's a Kiwi--and goes on to tell you why the eCom Elites course is different from other online courses you'll find out there.
Franklin assures you that he believes in value for money and that you will get your money's worth (and more) out of the course. Right now, I'm feeling like we're off to a great start...
Module 00 - eCom Introduction
Franklin starts with a bold statement: “Welcome to the best damn money-making course online." To be honest, I'm a little skeptical at this point...I mean, considering that other courses can cost up to 10 times more, can this one possibly offer as much value as one of those high ticket programs?
Franklin makes it clear that this course is for people who are just starting out on their e-commerce journey, so more seasoned dropshippers might find a lot of the content irrelevant to them.
For beginners however, this is a great introduction to what dropshipping is.
This Module is nothing more than an introduction to dropshipping. Chances are that if you've decided to pursue this business model, you already know the basics of what it's about. Franklin doesn't share what is to be expected of the course, but instead tells you not to have unrealistic expectations and expect to be a millionaire anytime soon. (Success takes time, remember?)
Module 08 - Business And Sales
As a New Zealander, Franklin discusses his take on business issues and taxes in New Zealand. The principles are more or less the same across the world, but to make sure that you do not get into trouble as a business owner, please be advised that it is typically best to ask an accountant to get clarity on the taxes you should pay. Video 3, "Business 101," is thus a worthy addition to the course (most other courses don't even mention taxes) albeit form a NZ point-of-view.
