No doubt that I was fooled by this guy and that is the reason why I am here writing this review. I had never invested in an online course and never knew there are many options out there. Before you join this program, I would suggest to compare the price and quality of this course offered by Adrian Morrison with many others available on the internet. Because I failed to do so and lost more than 2000 bucks on this ecom success academy.
From no where, I do not know from where I got the sales call from one of the reps from ecom success academy. I assume that the call was made through my online search history and through the forms that I keep filling online that asks for more information. I am clueless about the same. However, after receiving the call, I tuned into my laptop’s browser to check what kind of course Adrian offered. I know I had searched for similar course in the past and was not looking for something right away, but I knew I had the urge to learn about dropshipping.
I started getting emails as well. I had myself provided the email to the sales rep. So, whom to blame. After few discussions, I agreed to pay for the course and I wanted to talk to Adrian before making the payment. For me, it was a huge amount. And, I wanted to know how much it would be helpful from the one who created it. The very next hour, this guy called me and told me that he was Adrian. He said that I was very lucky to be able to understand what this entails. Although I am wary of hard sales techniques, the course details overwhelmed me.
I am sure this guy must be fooling a lot of people around as he knows the right words and tricks to throw at you. He made me believe that I was the lucky one. Today when I think about it, I really not know if that was Adrian himself or some other sales guy. Anyway, I was one of the fools that paid Adrian for such a useless course. It is around 2500 USD. Oh god! He did make me pay such a huge amount by just talking on phone.
Adrian told me that I will be making much more than the course fee through dropshipping from Shopify. If you will google online, you will find many success stories that would tell you the journey from zero to millions. And, I was very much interested in becoming that no body. But, I failed to recognize the right course.
Once you get the access to the dashboard, you will find all the modules you will go through. The videos and content, all are accessible inside the dashboard. When I first signed in, I had trouble with the password and it took these guys two days to sort that problem out. And, there wasn’t any weekend in between.
After I was able to check the videos, it made me upset to find out the low quality that made it difficult to go through all the steps clearly. But that was not the only problem. The content is very limited. They will tell you to setup your store, about the products and from where you can source them, facebook and email marketing and others. There are modules that tell you what to do once the business starts pulling off. However, this is when you already have a set store or you must wait and try to get to that point to see if those modules work. Because, in my case, the strategies did not click.
Because the content lacked a lot of important points, I believe I paid that kind of money only to get ripped. And, there are many others who have the same experience with this course. I am not saying that this course has nothing. It has some of the key points. And, missing a lot of information. But some hundred dollars would have justified the course worth. A disclaimer should mention that the course is not complete and one must go through advanced skills for setting an ecom business.
I have no personal grudge for this guy. But thinking that he lied about everything and the course make me angry. I asked him many times before paying for the course that if I would ever need any other information. And, he replied with a ‘NO’.
What else can I say? If someone was so adamant at making me fool and scamming me for all the money I had in my savings account, then he must be a con artist. Is there another word for him?
The course leads you in between of no where. The products that he has mentioned won’t work for you like it worked for others in the case studies. It is because the market is saturated for those products and there is no more craze for those products as it used to be before. I believe that this is not very uncommon in ecommerce business and one must share skills on marketing more than trying the same products when teaching an ecom course.
In short, the course is designed based on Adrian experience and success. However, he must know that market changes and so the tools and technologies. There is no mention of Instagram influencers and other strategies. There is no updation of the course, I do not know from how long. All these are the reasons why this course has failed to help the majority of people joining it.
I would rather suggest to try others with less cost. The competition is higher and experts are ready to share their knowledge in much less price for better results. Adrian, on one hand, has not much to share and on the other hand, expects us to fill his bank account right away. This is cheating and he is not an expert at ecom business but at scamming others online.
