Anton Method is a domain name purchased and promoted by an internet marketer called Johnny FD that is a 301 redirect (i.e. instant transfer) to the Drop Ship Lifestyle course.
So if you visit AntonMethod.com you will ultimately end up on Drop Ship Lifestyle and should you purchase the course created by Anton Kraly you will pocket Johnny 50% of the sales price.
So it would be fair to say you should read my review on Drop Ship Lifestyle instead of Anton Method as that’s what you’re ultimately buying into.
Anton Method – Background
Introducing Johnny FD,
Anton Kraly’s long time friend and former student, whom was introduced to the ‘wonderful world of drop shipping’ many years ago. Unsure what drop shipping is? Here’s a free guide.
Johnny liked the course so much he decided to become an affiliate for the course and promote it to his followers through his blog. One problem, no one likes an affiliate link, many people see a hyped up review and then the affiliate link and know the only reason the review is so good is the marketer will bag 50-75% commission.
Create a domain name using a 301 redirect to the affiliate link, then call the course something different to confuse readers and hope they don’t notice the affiliate link.
Current commission: 50% of $1000-$3000.
Anton Method: Sink or Swim?
Before answering this question it’s important to know a few things:
Johnny no longer owns any drop shipping businesses. Despite this, he has created his own half assed course on Udemy called Drop Ship Lab and promotes the Anton Method too.
He has never made more than $3,000 per month from a single drop shipping store. You can verify these claims by reading the income reports over on his blog.
It would also appear like many gurus out there, Johnny doesn’t know the difference between revenue and net profit. This is something that really hacks me off especially on sales pages for online courses.
I could send you a screenshot of a Shopify store making $350,000 per year however the truth is, that’s revenue. The store owner made a loss, -$50,000 to be precise, but you wouldn’t buy a course from him if he told you that upfront would you? The bottom line is that drop shipping is difficult?
Don’t believe me? I suggest you checkout the Shopify forums and see everyone else’s struggle.
He has made lots of bold claims as to why he never made more than $3k a month, he couldn’t be bothered running traffic, was too busy or limited his investment in the site. I don’t know about you but if you had made $3k from $250 in Google Adwords, I sure as hell would be running $1000 of ads per month to make $12k per month.
So in my opinion, Anton Method is a sink.
The real reason Johnny promotes the Anton Method is, affiliate marketing pays much better commissions and is completely passive so it’s far easier to promote drop shipping by selling a dream.
