Welcome to my full review of Ecom Elites. You might have come straight off Youtube after watching one of Franklin Hatchett’s videos and want to know more about his course. The good news is that I can tell you that I am a member and I will be taking you in the course so you can see what you are getting.
Before I go any further, I have to ask if you are new to ecom or would you consider yourself an expert? If you are new, this course is going to be great for you. Franklin’s a great teach, he really knows how to connect with his students and also provides great support.
The money you invest in eCom Elites is so little compared to what you can make. So when you think about it, is investing just $197 or $297 worth it to see if you can generate a big business from this? I think the answer is yes if you’re still on the fence well then I don’t blame you. I’m not here to convince you to join the course but only to show you. You can make that decision yourself but I do believe you are going to see the tremendous value here.
So What Do you Get With Ecom Elites?
The course has two buying options. You can either get the Standard Package which is $197 or you can grab the Ultimate package for $297.
What’s the difference between these two?
With the Ultimate version, you get everything the standard version has plus:
- A Step by Step Sales Funnel Academy
- Google Shopping Ads Academy
- A Book on Franklin’s top selling 6 figure products
- A Book on his top selling niches of all Time
So you can see that with the Ultimate version, the main additional training is with Google Shopping Ads and Sales Funnels.
Most dropshippers are focused on Facebook but if you were to incorporate Google Ads and also sales funnels, you’re basically turbocharging your business.
If you wanted to start with just Standard, you probably could upgrade to Ultimate and I imagine you just need to contact Franklin to faciliate that change. But if you want to dive right in with the best possible chance, i’d suggest Ultimate – it’s only 100 bucks more. If it was a LOT more then i’d just say stick with Standard for now.
Here’s what you get in both versions and we’ll jump into the individual modules after this.
Module 1 – Setting Up Shopify
For those that are very new, Shopify is an online platform that will host your dropshipping store, allow you to view reports, install a theme and also handle your payments. So in this module Franklin will guide you through the steps of setting up your very own Shopify store for your dropshipping business.
You are taken step by step, including choosing a domain name and connecting that to your store on the Shopify platform. You will then create all the necessary pages, create a logo, legal stuff and more.
Also very important here is that you will understand the differences between a classic “General Store” or a “Niche Store.” A general store normally has a vast array of different products while a niche store only sells products within a niche. From the training, you will know which one works better for you.
Module 2 – Sourcing Products
In this module, you will know how to find products to put on your store by Franklin’s training on product sourcing. You will also understand how to do niche selection and how to find and work with suppliers.
Establishing a relationship with suppliers is an advantage and you’ll learn to have this work to your advantage. But the main focus in this module is sourcing products and once you’re done with the module training you will know exactly what to look for. This is going to help you save money too, because you’ll know what products to actually stay away from.
Module 3 – Facebook Ads
This is a very large module and for good reason. Facebook ads will be the lifeblood of your business and Franklin knows Facebook ads inside and out. The training is intense with a LOT of videos so you will have a lot of learning in this section.
That’s a good thing because you need to have as much training as possible with Facebook ads in order to outpace your competitors. Once you really know how to work your ads, you can scale up from there which is going to earn you a lot more money.
Topics discussed in this module are:
- Different Ad Types
- Pixel Training
- Data Mining
- Setting up your business account
- and much more!
Module 4 – Instagram
This module is going to train you to be an expert in Instagram advertising. This strategy teaches you how to leverage the power of influencers to get you sales. You have probably big name celebrities promote certain products on Instagram already. There’s a reason why companies pay them the big bucks – this stuff works.
Obviously you are not going to pay for a post from Kylie Jenner, but you are going to find smaller yet effective Influencers to help you get your products shown to hundreds if not thousands of people. These people will be proven to be interested in your niche and Franklin shows you exactly how to do this. You will also learn how to run Instagram adverts.
This section is the perfect compliment to Facebook and you could technically just start with this and ignore Facebook ads for a bit.
Module 5 – Email Marketing
Email marketing should not be ignored in your ecommerce business. Capturing leads enables you to market to them for years to come. In this module Franklin shows you how to set up an email campaign using either a free email service like Mailchimp or a paid one like Get Response. Mailchimp becomes a paid service after you hit a certain amount of suscribers.
In the training you are going to find out how you can get your leads warmed up to your brand, how to get open rates that don’t suck, installing a pixel and other components – pretty much all you need to run a successful email campaign. Many people have increased their bottom line by 10% or more, so if your business really grows this could be lot of money you are leaving on the table if you don’t have an email campaign.
Module 6 – Chatbots
Chatbots have become very popular these days. You more than likely have seen these in action on other sites that you have visited. Franklin teaches you how to install this on your site so that you have a 24/7 sales team working for you.
You can send out ads in the chatboxes, link to products people are looking for, answer common questions and more. It’s just another needed tool that you need to incorporate and you’re going to get trained exactly how to do this in this module.
Module 7 – Sales Funnels
This is an option that only Ultimate package buyers will have access to. You will need a Clickfunnels account to do this however so please keep that in mind as the training is done using Clickfunnels.
Using sales funnels for your business is just another tool that you should consider because these things work. It’s a proven strategy otherwise companies like Clickfunnels would not exist.
Module 8 – Google Ads
Like the sales funnels, the Google Ads section is also part of the Ultimate subscription for eCom Elites.
If you decide to get this package, you’ll get a full course on how to create Google ads right from setting them up, how it all works, setting up your Google pixel, retargeting, learning about your audience and more.
In Google Shopping, you will be shown how you can set up a merchant account, connecting your app to the store, creating adverts, keyword research and how to create your ads.
There’s a lot of detail in this module so if you’re serious about incorporating Google ads along with Facebook ads (or maybe replacing them) then do yourself a favor and make sure you purchase the “Ultimate eCom Elites” option.
Module 9 – Organic Traffic (SEO)
If you like the idea of not having to spend money on ads, you will love this Google SEO section on organic traffic. Imagine having your store or product on the first page of Google. Not only is it free, but it’s very targeted traffic because people are searching for what you are selling.
The downside is that this stuff does take time. So, while you are running with your ads, you can build up your SEO on the side. Once that free traffic kicks in, you could be doubling your income.
Franklin also includes a lot of bonuses in the course and frequently updates them as well. I won’t go into to much detail here but he shows you show to spy on stores, a tip on some ninja tricks and tactics plus a lot more that others don’t teach. It’s pretty cool and just propels your business even more if you decide to use them.
Q&A & Support
Franklin holds live Q&A webinars that you can join in or just watch the replays. This is a great way to get some questions answered and also learn from other members’ questions.
If you ever need support, then just hit up support by sending a ticket. There’s also a Facebook option for support as well which is next.
For those that love interaction, you’ll want to join the private Facebook group. This is reserved for members of eCom Elites only (either package) and not to the public.
Franklin often answers questions in here and it’s a great place for newbies because a lot of questions you might have are found here. And, some questions that you might not even know that you want to ask will be answered here!
Final Conclusion & Last Words For my Review on eCom Elites
Let’s face it, there are many available dropshipping courses out there that you can buy. They range on the cheapo side at $47 or less and can go as high as $5000 which is crazy.
Franklins course is not only a bargain, but after diving in I quickly realized that this course has really been well done and covers so much more information than what I was expecting. I have bought other ecom courses in the past and they really don’t compare.
At last count I think there’s over 200 videos in eCom Elites. That’s a lot of training. The good thing is is that updates are free and I have seen the course get updates over the last several months as well. I like that because the course stays fresh with new material and you don’t have to pay for updates.
