It’s that time of year, when everyone starts to create courses on drop shipping and this time it’s a $1,497 course by a relatively unknown ‘guru’ called Sarah Lorenzen and I actually struggled to find any information about her and her course, yet someone recommended I check it out and see whether it’s worth the hefty $1,497 she put on it.
It appears after some online searching this course is a spin off of DFY Drop Ship University, a website she co owns with another individual. When going through the course it appears like you’ve bought a course directly from them.
The first thing I found was a post on Facebook from Sarah Lorenzen to Shopify about making $128k in one month back in 2016. Atleast she’s distinguishing between sales/revenue and actual profit which so many guru’s simply forget about on the sales page.
Roadmap To Drop Shipping Sales Review
Firstly, $1,497 is not a small sum of money for those people starting their very own drop shipping businesses. For most this can be quite a few weeks (or months) of saving so when courses come along upwards of $997 they better pack quite a punch or I’ll happily rip them apart.
Introduction To Drop Shipping.
Sarah’s course upon successful payment gives you access to five modules, but first there is the usual welcome videos and an introduction to Shopify. Yep, the first section is little more than one video of 5 minutes and a PDF file.
Module 1: Choose Your Winning Niche
Okay now we actually get into the course content. This module includes, 8 video lessons and 8 PDF files. You’ll learn the following:
- Choosing your winning niche
- Price points
- Customers & Brand Domination
- Create Your List of Niche Ideas
- How To Narrow Price Points Down
- How To Narrow Down Even Further
- Action Tasks.
You’ll also get access to a spreadsheet of a winning niche list and an excel document called winning niche selector.
Module 2: Build Your Drop Ship Store
There’s 8 videos here on how to create your Shopify store. While there isn’t much content here as the videos only last 10-15 minutes each (the last one is 35 minutes) she does seem to cover the basics.
There’s a series of lessons and tests so you can go through and check your store is setup correctly. You’ll also learn how to use the demo csv file importer into Shopify.
Module 3: How & Where To Get Products To Sell
Bit of a mouthful of a topic name, i’d simply call it product sourcing or finding suppliers but each to their own. There’s 3 fairly short videos accompanied by a wide variety of pdf handouts on how to find products to sell on your store.
The videos are super short.
Module 4: Optimize For Sales
In this section which looks incomplete you’ll learn how to optimize your store for more sales. There’s currently only five videos (yes 5) in this module,
- Optimizing Your Product Pages
- Persusasion Techniques
- Increasing Profit Per Sale
- eCommerce SEO
- Action Tasks.
Module 5: Get Customers & Go Live
This section Sarah focuses on using and setting up Google Adwords, how to setup and ensure your site is correctly optimized. Learn how to track conversions and then Google product feeds and finally creating campaigns, bids and fine tuning your ads.
No mention anywhere about Facebook ads, Instagram or any other form of ads.
It’s clear Sarah was a purchaser of Anton Kraly’s, Drop Ship Lifestyle course. Everything is very similar and barely touches the mainstream ad platforms such as Facebook or Instagram.
Lastly get access to the DIY library which includes a business formation and setup guide, an international members guide, dropship inspiration guide and a 23 day launch plan.
You’ll also get a bonus of access to their Facebook mastermind and a 1-2-1 call with Sarah.
Get a refund. If you’re considering to buy the course, don’t.
Honestly how can this course be worth anywhere near $147 let alone $1,497. It’s a complete joke, incomplete and lacks even the most basic of videos and lessons. If Sarah Lorenzen can charge $1,497 for this course then that would explain why so many people claim drop shipping is a scam.
This was one of my shortest reviews of a drop shipping course to date. I’m shocked.
