There are so many e-commerce courses out there today and you would be hard pressed to purchase just one of them. It seems that most of the ecom guru’s all have the same strategies but there are some differences in the way they teach and also with their tactics.
Most of these courses has a few things in common. For example, all ecom drop shipping courses will have a Facebook module. Facebook is the best place to sell impulsive buy products like trinkets and stuff. A lot of Shopify drop shipping stores focus on these random products and with the right targeting, people will buy.
Ecom Elites Review
One of the courses that I find stands out from the rest is ecom elites by Franklin Hatchett. I first came across Franklin on Youtube a while back. He seemed like a genuine guy and not some sleazy salesguy that a lot of these Youtubers seem to be these days. The best think is that he provides proof of his earnings by actually logging into his accounts and shows the earning realtime – that is hard to fabricate.
His product is reviewed by many marketers and as an example you can check out this ecom Elites review here.
I won’t go into as much detail so you can just check it out for yourself. What I will say is that has about 10 modules. These modules are:
- Sourcing Products
- Setting up Your Store
- Email Marketing
- Business and Sales
- Secret Videos
- Update Videos (includes updates as things change)
The cost of the cours is $197 USD. From what I have heard him say in a recent video is that he is going to be upgrading the course soon. He said the price is going to go up but we will have to see about that. A lot of marketers claim to raise their prices but since he is going to do an update on the course, it’s a real possibility.
I do hope that he includes a money back guarantee though with the new update. Currently he has a 30 day refund policy which is good considering some don’t offer a guarantee at all.
You also get access to a Facebook mastermind group. Here, you can talk with other members in the ecom elites community and discuss common goals, strategies etc. I think this is a great thing to have as people that are struggling can pose questions and get some answers.
A word of caution though – don’t deviate from Franklin’s training. Do what he says, not what someone in the group says. The group should be for support only, not a place to get a different opinion on what Franklin teaches.
Ecom Turbo Theme
Franklin also has a theme called Ecom Turbo that he developed. He doesn’t include it with his ecom course (that would be nice though) but you can make this as a separate purchase.
What’s good about this theme is that the focus is on conversions. That is how the theme was developed. Faced with many marketers is the issue of conversions. If you have traffic to your store and your site is slow, looks ugly, product placement is bad, etc., then your potential customers are going to bail on you.
Franklin also goes into email marketing and explains the importance on this. You will need an autoresponder and he recommends two of them. He also shows you how to set it up (bonus) for maximum conversions. Don’t ignore an email marketing campaign – it could change your business for the better dramatically.
Ecom Elites is a great option from the more pricey courses out there and Franklin had proven to be an authentic coach. It has our vote as one of the best courses to buy if you want to start a drop shipping Shopify store.
