Could 7 Figure Skills be the best Dropshipping course or could it just be a way to get thousands of dollars from you?
In this 7 Figure Skills review, we will be discussing the insights of this training program and whether or not it is worth your time and investment.
Firstly, I just wanted to say that I am neither promoting this program nor do I have anything against it.
I have taken the course myself, and I merely wish to provide you with informative material to help you decide if 7 Figure Skills is right for you.
So, let's get started...
What is 7 Figure Skills?
In a nutshell, 7 Figure Skills is an eCommerce training and coaching program that teaches you how to sell high-ticket (expensive) items on Shopify using Google Shopping Ads.
On its website, 7 Figure Skills was said to be created by AJ Jomah and his co-founder named J Keitsu.
Jomah is a veteran and accomplished Internet Marketer.
He has launched several products over the years; various training programs on how to be successful on different online business opportunities including Print on Demand, how to start an Amazon FBA business and now...
How to do high-ticket dropshipping.
On the other hand, I tried digging additional information about J Keitsu but my search was futile.
However, you can learn a little more about AJ and J in here.
A Peek Inside 7 Figure Skills Dropshipping Course
The 7 Figure Skills covers a lot less training modules for its price.
The good thing about this course is that it does have some good contents that could be useful for in starting a dropshipping business.
There are 9 training modules (videos and downloadable contents) that come with 7 Figure Skills, along with a few bonus contents.
I will discuss each one of them right now...
#1 What Makes A Good Product To Sell Online
The first module covers topics on how to choose your business niche and product research. In here, AJ shares a step by step method about the entire process of how he finds the best products to sell.
He also talks about the common dropshipping myths, how to overcome them and more.
Module 1 covers these topics:
- Choosing The Right Product Or Niche To Promote
- Step-By-Step Methods To Find The Best Products To Sell
- 7 Common Drop Shipping Myths
- Finding The Right Products To Promote
- 10 Easy Ways To Brainstorm Niches and Markets
- Downloadable Action Plan Guides and Worksheets
#2 Brainstorming Product Ideas
Module 2 is merely a continuation of Module 1.
In here, Aj dives deep into the previous topics and starts with a "real-life case study" on how a single product has the potential to generate $100,000 over the course of one month.
The study centers on the premise that in high-ticket dropshipping, you only need to sell 20 products that worth $5,000 a piece to hit the one hundred K.
Whereas, you would need as much as 5,000 sales if you are selling a 20$ product.
Aj also introduces an online tool which he personally uses (and trademarked) to brainstorm ideas and find new products to sell that will enable you to build and scale your business in no time.
This module also comes with a downloadable report that reveals more than 200 products to start your business with. However, not all these products are high-ticket products.
There are low-ticket products included which made me wonder...
I thought this course is about selling high-ticket products?
Maybe Aj simply wishes to provide you with some flexibility but still, this goes on the opposite direction to the main idea on which this course is built upon - selling high-ticket products. (more on this in a moment)
These are the things you can expect to learn within the Module 2:
- How To Generate Over $100k/Month With A Single Product
- 3 Practical Steps To Choose A Product
- What is the Pick-A-Niche™ Online Tool
- Top Ranking Stores On Shopify & My Top eCom Resources
- 214 High Ticket & Low Ticket Product Ideas
- Downloadable Product Picking Worksheet
#3 Validating Your Niche and Finding Suppliers
On this module, Aj focuses on how to utilize Google Ads into driving traffic to your business.
You will also learn how to effectively price the products that you are selling in such a way that you maximize your profits without losing sales to your competitors.
There's a section on how to find a "winning niche" but that will simply take you into using the Pick-A-Niche™ Online Tool.
Finally, you will also be given access to a directory of "strong suppliers" but are just actually a listing of AliExpress sellers.
Module 3 covers these topics:
- Finding The Perfect Price Point Using Google's Shopping Network
- How To Eliminate 90% Of Bad Niches For Your Business
- Product And 4,000 Strong Supplier Directory
- How To Ask Your Competitors For Help
- Finding Out If Your Niche Is Going To Work Before You Even Begin
- Downloadable Action Plan Guides & Worksheets
#4 Creating Your Store
This is where the action begins.
On this module, Aj will take you into a step by step process on how to create your first Shopify eCommerce store.
Personally, I do not think this training special when compared to the ones offered by much cheaper eCommerce training programs.
I would even say that a good number of the training videos that come on this module are readily available for free on YouTube.
The basic things such as how to set up your Shopify store, how to get a higher conversion, how to build a brand and the whole shebang.
Either way, these are the topics included here:
- A-Z Checklist For Setting Up Your Shopify Store Correctly
- Best Picks On Choosing The Best Converting Templates
- Tips On Setting Up Your Store For Maximum Exposure
- Do's & Don'ts For Branding and Logos
- Top 9 Plugins and Modules For Automation
- How To Setup Conversion Optimized Emails For Sales and the Abandoned Cart
- Downloadable Action Plan Guides & Worksheets
#5 Supplier Approval and Research
One of the most crucial things Aj failed to mention in this module is that if you are not a US citizen...
Partnering with US-based dropshipping suppliers is an unlikely option for you.
Suppliers from the US requires SSS numbers and IDs among other things. It is then safe to assume that local US suppliers won't work with you.
You might want to consider AliExpress instead.
But if you reside stateside and planning to start a Shopify business, then this could be of use.
Module 5 includes training videos on:
- How To Find Secure Top Suppliers Across The USA
- A Step-By-Step Supplier Research To Find Suppliers Anywhere In The World
- Best Scripts And Email Templates For Contacting Suppliers
- 21-Point Suppliers Checklist
- Drop Ship Reseller Agreements
- Downloadable Action Plan Guides & Worksheets
#6 Store Optimization
This module will teach you the steps on how to optimize your Shopify store to generate higher sales.
You will also be given access to some content and email templates that are designed to boost your conversion rates.
Module 6 will cover topics such as:
- How To Optimize Your Store To Get More Conversions
- Top Templates For Your About Me, Contact Us, Shipping And Returns Pages
- Crucial Elements For Email Follow Ups
- Best Practices, Tips, And Suggestions For Increasing Sales
- Downloadable Action Plan Guides and Worksheets
#7 Email and Automation
The module 7 will teach you the basics of setting up, automating and taking advantage of email marketing for your business. To be honest, I am personally not impressed with the contents of this module.
In my experience...
There are other much cheaper eCommerce courses that will give you a better insight about email marketing and its influence on your business.
There are even free YouTube videos and blogs that can provide you with better information.
These are the topics that you can learn in this module:
- Overview On What Is Email Marketing
- How To Use Email Marketing For Your Business
- Boost Your Conversion And Sales Using Emails
- Setting Up And Automate Emails For Your Business
- Downloadable Action Plan Guides & Worksheets
#8 Traffic Overview
This module of 7 Figure Skills includes everything you need to know about Google Ads and Google Shopping.
You will learn how to properly set up campaigns, how to minimize your expenses running on Google Ads and more.
The entire module 8 covers these topics:
- How To Setup Your Very First Google Ad Campaign
- Essential Steps To Get The "Right" Traffic For Your Business
- Simple Google Tactic That Generates 90% Of Sales
- Google Hacks For Getting Cheap Traffic
- Using Your Ad Budget Efficiently
- Free Coaching Session with AJ Jomah (or one of his associates) about Google Shopping
#9 Facebook Advertising
This module teaches you how to utilize the popularity of social media and the role it plays on the daily lives of the people today.
As social media has become a normal part of anyone's daily routine, it is likely that you can utilize this to generate sales for your business. I am not sure if this strategy will work on selling high-ticket items that cost thousands of dollars.
People usually go to a trusted brand or a brick and mortar store when spending those kinds of money but still...
Exposure is what your business needs at the beginning. What best way there is to expand the reach of your advertising and marketing than on one of the most popular social media platform - Facebook.
Aj claims this Facebook community to be worth $1,997, which I find hard to believe.
I took the liberty of visiting 7FS's FB page and the group doesn’t seem to be very active and not exclusive either.
The page doesn't seem to fit the $1,997 price.
As you can see on the image below, the posts are very scarce, the one from March 15 was followed on April 20.
Also, not much member's engagement either.
On the bright side, the “private” online community could be an entirely different group from what I showed you here so I will give Aj the benefit of the doubt.
7 Figure Skills Price
As I am writing this 7 Figure Skills review, the course comes in three packages.
- The Basic Package costs $1297,
- Hold My Hand mentorship program costs $2497 and;
- the Done-For-You solution will cost you $5997.
What I Like About 7 Figure Skills?
Overall, the 7 Figure Skills is a decent training course that could help you build your own high-ticket dropshipping business from scratch. These are the things I personally found appealing about the course.
#1 Detailed Course on How To “Potentially” Earn Huge Profits
The foundation of 7 Figure Skills is teaching you how to sell high-ticket products online.
Needless to say, these products will fetch you a healthy profit every time you make sales. Also, all you need is to make a few (much fewer) sales per month to cover your overhead expenses and keep some profits.
When done right, you only need to sale 10-20 items when running a high-ticket dropshipping business on Shopify instead of the need to sell hundreds and even thousands when selling low ticket item.
Furthermore, selling expensive products that are usually targeted to the higher middle class and above means fewer returns and customer service.
#2 Teaches the 5 Elements of Any Profitable Niche
The 7 Figure Skills will teach you the 5 elements that you need to familiarize if you are planning to start a high-ticket dropshipping business.
These elements include the best profitable product price, finding premium suppliers, limiting your suppliers to only 5-10, how to find the best niche with less than 25 competitors and the “No Brand Loyalty” strategy.
#3 How to Utilize Google Ads
I was hesitant to include this on the things that I find attractive about 7FS as there are plenty of free training videos on YouTube that will teach you the same.
However, I decided to add this here as I appreciate how Aj presented the training about Google Ads in such a way that it is easier to understand even in the perspective of complete beginners.
There are also training videos that discuss how to properly set up your Google Ads campaigns and such.
#4 A 30-Day NQA Money Back Guarantee
You get a full 30 day no questions asked guarantee through Stripe should you want a refund.
I suggest that you contact the people behind 7FS if you need more details about this feature.
My Concerns About 7 Figure Skills
On this part of my 7 Figures Review, allow me to present the other side of the coin. Below are the things that can be considered “bad” (and even ugly) about this course.
#1 Expensive for What its Worth
I understand that this course is different from the majority due to the fact that it primarily on focuses on how to sell high ticket products.
Some might argue that the contents of the 7 Figure Skills course are worth every penny that you are going to pay.
However, I beg to differ.
I have personal experience with other eCommerce training programs and I would say that 7FS is a little over-priced for what it's worth.
#2 High-Ticket Training Program Or Not?
I mentioned this earlier and I just want to expand my concern regarding the contents of this course, especially in Module 2.
The products included in the report were not all high-ticket products that you can sell but actually comes with cheap ones.
I mentioned earlier that this could just be the creators, AJ and J, giving us a wider range of options regarding the products to sell.
However, the main selling point of 7 Figure Skills is that it promises to teach people how to sell expensive products online.
What about the idea of selling 20 x $,5000 products to hit 100K?
The reason why most people pay a load of money for this course is that it claims to teach them how to sell high-ticket products.
If 7FS does not do that, then I would rather opt for other equally impressive eCommerce training programs that do not cost as much.
What do you think?
Please share your thoughts in the Comment Section below.
#3 Not for Beginners
This is in consideration that the course encourages people to put up a huge amount of money as capital.
Yes, starting an online business in Shopify or Amazon will require an upfront investment but it doesn't have to cost this much. For someone who has no prior knowledge and experience in running an online store on Shopify...
Focusing on high-ticket products on your first try is a bold yet VERY risky move. If things go south, you can quickly find yourself deep in debt.
#4 Regional Specific Contents
One thing I always look at a training program (especially for something with this price tag) is if the contents are applicable to anyone, anywhere in the world.
Although most of the contents in 7 Figure Skills can be considered as such...
There are some and even a whole module (module 5) that will be deemed useless if you are not from the US. This makes it a questionable investment.
Paying premium dollars for a course which contents you cannot take advantage of 100% is impractical.
I personally do not think this is an issue if you are paying a $100 for a course, but for the price you are paying for 7FS, this is a big deal.
#5 Heavy Reliant On Paid Traffic
There are two ways to drive traffic to your business, organic (free) and paid.
Google Ads is a paid traffic source and here’s one major concern I have about relying completely on paid traffic for your business.
Facebook or Google does not care if your ads are profitable or not. They will continue to spend your budget whether you are making sales or not.
When running paid advertisements, you must constantly pay close attention to your ad performances and your sales numbers every day.
The thing is, just because you have a successful paid Ads that are converting well today, it doesn’t mean that it will perform the same tomorrow.
Paid ads does not work like that. Over time, paid ads will mature, and you'll have to start a new campaign.
I suggest that you build your online business reputation thru organic traffic.
With free traffic, you just need to create original and high-quality content once and you might not need to take a second look at it ever again.
That piece of content (blog post, product sales pages, etc) can “potentially” drive customers to your business in all the years to come without you ever touching it again.
This is why famous bloggers and online entrepreneurs constantly update their contents every single day!
On that note...
This cheaper training program will teach you how to successfully generate organic traffic for your eCommerce business. Meanwhile, if you have no problem getting your leads from paid traffic all the way...
Then you might want to check out this program too.
#6 Content Templates
I think Aj's heart might be on the right place on wanting to help people achieve the same level of success he attained with dropshipping. But I find his methods a little questionable.
In the case of the content templates, I have no concerns if you are planning to use paid advertisements all the way.
But if you are planning to utilize organic traffic for your business (and I think you should), then you might run into some challenges.
Anyone who has decent knowledge about SEO would do better than using any of these content templates.
This is because there will be tons of other Shopify stores that are already using them and there are more who might use them in the future.
Chances are, your contents will appear as “duplicate contents” to Google and other search engines.
#7 Sketchy Marketing Strategies
If you visit the 7 Figure Skills sales page, you will notice plenty of limited time offers and discounts.
I have no problem about using the scarcity marketing strategy. But I think they went overboard with theirs that these offers appears a little “scammy”.
Take a look at these images below.
Yes, these are not true.
I wasn’t able to finish this review in a single day and that gives me time to check these offers.
Guess what. The one that says expires in 1 hour is till there after 24 hours. Also, there are some inconsistencies on the prices of the packages.
See images below.
If the training modules that comes with 7 Figure Skills are as effective as what Aj claims to be, there is no need for this (again) scammy marketing propaganda.
Is 7 Figure Skills A Scam?
I can say with confidence that 7 Figure Skills is not a scam. However, I do question if the course is worth its price tag.
As I have repeatedly expressed on this 7 Figure Skills review...
I feel that there are much cheaper dropshipping courses out there that can provide the same quality of training programs.
I do agree with a lot of what AJ Jomah had to teach on the 7 Figure Skills. I understand his intentions of selling high-ticket products instead of the cheap ones.
If you wanna get far into the eCommerce business, I do believe you should stay away from selling really cheap products.
However, the big challenge with high-ticket dropshipping business model is you will have to spend much more in ad to get each sale.
You will also expose yourself on the risks of losing huge amount of money (especially if you are a beginner) if things do not go out as planned, which believe me, is likely to happen in any online business model.
My Sincere Advice
If you are seriously considering to start a high-ticket dropshipping business on Shopify...
I recommend that you take a look at other courses as an alternative to 7 Figure Skills. I am not saying that this course cannot provide you with the knowledge and skills that you need to succeed.
However, it is better to take a look around before deciding to settle on one thing.
