Another drop shipping course to hit the market recently and causing quite a stir is dropship legacy by a young gun called J Keitsu who claims to be making up to $300,000 per day from Shopify.
If you’ve read my other drop ship reviews such as drop ship lifestyle, my wife quit her job or store coach then you’ll know I cut straight to the chase and dissect the course and the lecturer into great detail.
You see many marketers will happily tell you how great a course is so they get their 50% commission when you buy the course and couldn’t care less about your success (or inevitable failure).
Dropship Legacy Review
Until recently I’d never heard of J Keitsu nor his course which looks like it’s been around for about a year. That was until he arrived in one of the Facebook e-commerce groups I’ve been following and posted a video of him making two million dollars in a month from Shopify.
Now if you’ve read some of my other posts you’ll know that he’s made no where near two million dollars as he’ll ultimately have supplier costs, advertisements and various other expenses (oh and the IRS want their cut too).
However the profits from two million dollars is probably quite a lot! A quick check of this guys Instagram page reveal a rather quiet affair with a black Honda NSX and some travel photos, along side those elusive two million dollar Shopify videos.
The key point here is that he is uploading Shopify videos rather than photos like most other gurus out there (that can easily be photoshopped). He also seems to refresh the keyboard and show the Shopify app on his phone.
Problems here? He never shows the Shopify URL in the videos, even masking the URL would give people more confidence in buying into his course. Another issue is when he refreshes the store the sales figures never increase. Now if your store is making $300k a day and you refresh after a minute or two wouldn’t it be great to see a difference? Unfortunately there never is in the videos.
Another video he recently posted on Facebook showed the scheduled payouts to his account. I’ve taken a screenshot below so you can have a look. Those payouts look rather low for a store making $2 million dollars.
You can watch the video yourself here.
I’m going to give J Keitsu the benefit of the doubt here, but you can be your own judge.
Shortly after visiting his Dropship Legacy sales page I start getting retargeted ads on Facebook about a $30 per month package he’s offering where his virtual assistant sends you 10 new ‘hot selling products’ everyday direct to your inbox.
I don’t know about you but if you were making $2 million dollars would you be offering a course for $30? Maybe he has 500 members and is making an easy $15k extra per month, I’m not sure.
Update: This is an addon product to the original course apparently.
What is Dropship Legacy?
When I first landed on the sales page for Dropship Legacy (now DL for short) I thought ‘What the F…’ – Someone who claims to make so much money online can’t even create a decent sales page, or pay someone to do it?
As I read down the page, I thought.. maybe he wants to showcase a badly designed sales page and that could be correct. I’ve read numrous articles online that suggest sales pages from 10 years ago perform better than pages with all the bells and whistles.
If you take a look at the Clickbank best sellers you’ll know what I mean.
Sales page graphics aside, there is a bunch of the usual sales tactics such as including a video of him being featured on the Huffington Post (a gig you can actually buy on Konker for $100) and a bunch of students success stories.
I can tell he bought the Huffington Post gig as it’s written by a ‘Contributor’ rather than an Editor to the website. You can learn more about how this works. Again this adds doubts about his story of two million dollars. Maybe he just wants to feel important?
The part that threw me was there was no obvious signup form.
Finally found it, there’s a name and email box with a button called ‘Show Me Phases.’
Signing Up For Dropship Legacy
After a quick google search for his course it became clear that the course is built on the Clickfunnels platform and you know what that means, 1 click upsells baby, so be careful going through the funnel.
On the front end DL seems to offer three easy to choose pricing options, I’ve read other reviews which state that the entry level price point was originally $47 and then raised to $297. I can confirm as of today the entry level price is back down to $47.
After plugging in my throw away email and name I was taken to another page with a longer sales page. I didn’t have time to watch the video as another popup asked me to enrol in a live webinar starting in 10 minutes. (Live, Yeah. Right).
I hit back on my browser to see what the sales page was all about.
It was all about the three key phases:
- Phase 1: Affiliate marketing with Instagram
- Phase 2: Facebook
- Phase 3: Diversify.
One thing that got me here was that J Keitsu openly shows you his profit breakdown. That is something that I’ve seen in no other course to date. There’s a rather long infographic that shows you how everything works and flows together.
Remember that two million dollars? The take home payout was a lot less.
Although, definitely a good way to engage his prospective buyers.
After this is the usual testimonials and more Facebook screenshots of students who’ve made a fortune through drop shipping, the fake paid Huffington post article and some other articles from other sites.
Then you’re into the pricing tables. Meanwhile my ‘Live’ webinar started with an overview about J Keitsu, his life and the usual guru bullshit about how he started with nothing and worked his way up. I quickly exited.
Dropship Legacy Pricing
October 19th 2017: Version 3.0 launched recently, price is back up to $297, $1297 or $5000.
It seems to me from the other reviews online that the most popular course is of course the $47 option. When you compare the price to shady courses such as MOBE or Wealthy Affiliate then you are getting a far better course for the same price.
I opted to sign up for the $47 course at this stage.
What You Get With Dropship Legacy?
The course starts with an introduction to what exactly drop shipping is. Given you’ve bought a drop shipping course or are looking at buying one, you probably know what this is. There’s many free courses out there you can checkout if you want to understand the concept better.
The next section is all about Shopify and creating a store. Lessons 3 to 8 are focused on Shopify store setup, installing recommended applications and dealing with taxes, masking your domain, shipping specifications and most importantly correct theme setup.
There is a recommended theme through the course that you can get a discount with, but you can checkout my other suggestions in this article here. You’re not forced into buying the theme in DL.
Videos so far are around 5 – 15 minutes in length, so they are short and snappy.
The next module/section is called, Slaying With Instagram. I guess to sum it up this section is for marketers whom don’t want to invest in Facebook Ads and would rather do Instagram shoutouts, or influencer marketing. They also show you how to correctly setup your Instagram account.
Lessons 13 – 23 include training on Facebook Ads, some of the videos include advice on:
- Setting up Facebook pages and ad accounts
- Creating your first ad and correct targeting
- Understanding Facebook Performance Indicators (KPI’s)
- Learning how to split test easily
- Running Facebook Ads on Instagram feeds
- How to retarget correctly
- Setting up custom audiences correctly
- Which Facebook objective is best
- Scaling up ads
- Facebook fan page strategy
- Using Facebook chat bots.
The next lessons deal with Pinterest, again another free and/or paid traffic source depending on how you use it. The lessons include setting up and automating Pinterest for traffic to your store.
Moving on the next lessons include email marketing and in DL you’ll be using Mailchimp. There’s no reason why other companies such as Aweber or Getresponse couldn’t be used. I personally use Aweber.
The next lessons include customer service issues and outsourcing this to a VA, I felt this section could have been expanded further but two short videos are all you get here.
The final lesson is titled, ‘You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know’ – by this point I was slightly confused and didn’t even bother watching the video, maybe in the future I’ll go back and see what he was talking about.
Lastly theres a bonus section with his, ‘Mini Clickfunnels Course’ which seems slightly irrelevant and a link to the private Facebook group so you can discuss with other like minded marketers. There’s also one final video called ‘They Keys To Facebook Manual Bidding’ which is indeed very helpful.
Is Dropship Legacy worth $47?
Personally this is one of the better drop ship courses on the market at a fraction of the price, if you compare this to the likes of drop ship lifestyle which is nearly $2,500 it’s definitely a good course for all entrepreneurs.
J Keitsu seems to be rather shady when it comes to uploading videos of his Shopify dashboard but the figures do seem to stack up unless he’s a pro at Photoshop too. Unfortunately it seems like the numbers in his Shopify dashboard are from selling high ticket items such as furniture rather than the low end products he teaches in the course.
Keitsu has openly admited this in a number of his Facebook posts, so don’t be fooled into thinking you can easily make $2 million dollars selling toothbrush holders or motorcycle chain bracelets.
Maybe one day he’ll add his videos for selling high ticket products too. If he does I’ll let you know and update my review to match. Overall for the course content alone this gets a 4/5. As for J Keitsu, I still need convincing, at this stage anyway.
