If you’ve been on Youtube lately and started looking into the world of drop shipping, Shopify or making money online then you’ve probably been served up a video advertisement by Joaquin Corrales, a web entrepreneur who claims he will show you how to make $1,400 per day with your very own drop shipping business, in his course eCom Masters.
I’ve been asked many times over the last few months to write a review about this course as it actually features Franklin Hatchett, who has his own course (which is 10 times cheaper) yet the price of Joaquin’s course is $1,997 and whether or not the additional price is worth it or not.
I should probably start by saying I’m a firm believer in value for money and I’m an affiliate for Franklin’s course as I believe it’s the best drop shipping course for 2018 however to keep things fair I’ll evaluate whether eCom Master’s is worth $1997 in my opinion and what you actually get.
Ecom Masters Review
The course is promoted heavily by Joaquin Corrales on Youtube and retargeting ads that pop up all over the place if you end up clicking on his link. Next you’re taken to a contact form to register for a webinar. Personally I’m not a huge fan of webinar sales pitches so if you want to buy you’ll need to attend one.
The course claims to show you:
- How we’re making $1.4k a day with a SIMPLE online store that we spend 1 hour a week with
- How we pick products that we know are going to make money instantly
- Store launching pattern that we use to sell thousands of products
- Go inside our advertising account and see how we make $10 for every $1 we spend like clockwork
A lot of my readers questioned what the training looks like and what is included in the $1997 price tag. Franklin actually answered the question on my blog a few months ago.
So when you go through the training there is a lot of very similar videos from eCom elites that make an appearance and then there is a wide variety of videos that feature Joaquin by himself.
A good example here is the introduction videos are filmed by Joaquin and then the Shopify and Facebook ad modules are very similar to eCom elites. In fact most of them are actually the same.
If you’ve previously bought eCom elites then you probably wouldn’t benefit from buying Ecom Masters (for the video content anyway…).
Ecom Masters Course Content
- Over 130 Videos Of Content
- eCom Turbo Theme
- 1-2-1 Coaching
- + Bonuses.
You get well over 130 videos of normal videos and 30 additional videos on how to install the software bonuses that come included with the course package. I prefer the videos of Franklin and I feel you get a much clearer understanding of setting up your business especially in the Facebook ads section.
Joaquin is the face of the course and you’ll see him in the video ads, webinars and introduction of the course but that’s about it. He will of course be there to help and assist you with the mentoring and coaching which is included in the package.
eCom Turbo Theme
The eCom Masters package comes with the unlimited license for eCom Turbo which is a theme developed and created by Franklin. I’ve actually done a pretty detailed review on that theme here and it’s definitely recommended. The normal price on this theme would be $147 so you’re getting that included with the purchase of eCom Masters.
You also get all the training videos on how to install, customize and maintain the theme within your store. You can install and use the theme on as many Shopify stores as you like (that you own).
This is the biggest selling point about this course, the coaching. If you don’t need training then you’d probably be better off just buying a subscription to eCom elites ($197) and then the unlimited eCom Turbo license ($147) and you’d be up and running for under $350.
If you want to be hand held or simply get advice on how to scale a hobby into a full time business then getting the coaching and support from Joaquin, Franklin and their team of coaches is definitely worth the $1,997. If you factor in an hourly rate of say $100-$200 then after 10 hours of coaching you’re already saving money!
I know a lot of people have queried whether the coaching is worth the additional $1,500 and I think it’s worth far more than that. If you compare that to courses being created by ‘kids’ charging $997 – $4997 then you’re getting a good deal. I know Franklin offers powerful content and plenty of value and he wouldn’t work with anyone offering anything less so Joaquin is probably the real deal too.
You get access to additional training videos as and when they post them, for example there was a special module on how to make a higher average customer order and how to sell warranties.
They also host weekly Q&A sessions whereby you can ask questions and listen to other recommendations from other coaches including Franklin.
Who Is eCom Masters For?
This is a program for newbies to intermediates who want to start off quickly and in the right direction and find success quickly. When you get access to a course like eCom Masters right from the beginning, you can avoid the usual mistakes, pitfalls, and setbacks that most people experience and give up with.
If you have some experience in the eCommerce business already, and want to make more money – scaling – then Ecom Masters is obviously a wise choice too, more so than eCom elites which is just a video course and FB mastermind. A chance to learn from those doing serious numbers in the Shopify space.
This is a good course if you want to be ‘coached’ through the process of setting up your store and scaling. If you’re thinking of this course vs the hundreds of others out there, the coaches in this course have genuine experience and I can vouch for them. If you’re only looking for video training then I’d give this course a miss and signup for eCom elites.
