Franklin Hatchett is an eCommerce LEGEND.
He’s got a metric TON of top quality videos that outline a number of no-bullcrap, tried-and-tested ways to make money with a laptop and a wi-fi connection.
What’s all the hype you ask?

1)What’s cool and not-so-cool about eCommerce
2)A Breakdown of what you’ll find in this course
3)A brief rundown of my personal experiences with eCommerce.

So back to Franklin Hatchett.
He’s basically a Yoda-style teacher, without the green skin and pointy ears.
He drops knowledge bombs on his audience’s cranium pertaining to product sales using the internet.
His techniques involve such time-tested and powerful technologies as blog networks, affiliate offers, Fiverr gigs, Google Adsense, and other things of that nature.
I know what you’re thinking.
Is this a scam, you say?
First off, I’d like to tackle that doubt immediately.
No way, Jose. Franklin is the real deal, and he’s got two main course types available currently.
One is about affiliate marketing, which is basically reviewing other people’s products and acting as a middleman.
The other is eCommerce, which is more like an online store.
That’s the course I’m gonna be talking about in this article.
Ya feel me?
Okay, so first off, I’d just like to say… eCommerce is NOT for people who are afraid of making mistakes.
You’re going to need to be willing to put yourself in difficult situations to really be able to make them dollar dollar bills.
But that’s true of any business, am I right?
You also have to make sure and push through to the end to really see that cheddar start to rain down on your bank account like it’s a pepperoni pizza about to go into the oven.
(Speaking of which, pizza sounds pretty amazing right about now…)
But hey, if they say it’s “easy riches” then they’re definitely lying to you.
Get on with it, I hear you say!
So what’s the verdict? Well, as judge, jury and executioner, my process went like this…
After trying literally EVERYTHING I could get my hands on, I decided that local business marketing was for me, and that helping local business owners grow their businesses and live the lives they dreamt of was for me.
As soon as I started in 2014, I knew I’d never work at another auto parts counter.
No more brown paper bag lunches. No more cheap bologna sandwiches with a single. Stinking. Slice. Of. Bologna.
But enough about me, let’s brainstorm.
See what’s right for you.
It’s important to make sure you’re a good fit for any program before you buy into it.
So what skill sets do you currently have?
Ever done Facebook ads?
There’s a lot of that involved.
What about Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube or Google Adwords?
If the answer to any of those is a “yes”, then you already have a strong advantage over the crowd.
But hey, even if you’re totally new to this, there’s hope.
Anybody can learn this stuff, you just have to want it.
And to be honest, it’s normal for successful people to do something new.
Do you think Elon Musk knew anything about electric cars or space travel before he got started? Probably not.
So now, what you’ve all been waiting for…
A breakdown of all the pros and cons of eCom.
eCom: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
Be your own boss.
Ecommerce is definitely one of the most famous ways that regular people can make money online, on their own time.
Technically, once you find your niche you can just sit back and rack up the benjamins on autopilot.
The trick? It takes a ton of focus to get you to that place.
But like anything worth a darn, it ain’t always easy.
Costs very little to get started.
A normal store, complete with rent, the electric bill, water, and the price of your wares, can easily exceed thirty thousand dollars.
You’re looking at just a little over $400 to get the ball rolling. Not bad huh?
The ugly part
There’s a lot of mouse traps, and success can take a long time.
Overall, making mistakes is necessary for an online business.
And while Ecom Elites really lays down the important parts of this business model, you still might struggle to make ends meet.
Franklin is a great teacher and a very successful business owner, but you can easily make the mistake of buying into the wrong tools or info products and really dig a financial hole for yourself.
And worst of all? Time, your most precious asset of all, might go to waste.
You’re all alone.
When it comes to Ecommerce, there isn’t much in the way of a community of like-minded entrepreneurs, so you better be comfortable with figuring things out on your own.
Now, don’t get me wrong.
There’s probably thousands of online communities or Facebook groups where you can find a support group, but they’re either spammed out with other people selling courses, or just…
Ecom is also such a wildly varied field, and you never really know if others are using the same platforms as you.
Fortunately, Franklin offers a support community for his Ecom Elite members.
She’s a material girl.
That’s right, I’m talking about a high maintenance business model here.
Markets can change rapidly, along with the price of ads.
And while Ecom can definitely land you passive income, it still requires constant attention to make sure that you aren’t losing out on your profits.
You have to constantly test your ads and monitor your audience.
Lots of products can be a fad, and you have to be aware of what sells here and now to truly make that monay.
Overall, it’s not what I’d call truly… Passive.
Ecom Elites Course: Pros and Cons
1)Franklin gets right to the important parts.
My favorite thing about his teaching style is that as soon as you click “go”, you’re learning.
2)This man knows what he’s talking about.
There’s a lot of people out there trying to teach you what they don’t know, but this man makes over $40,000 a month in profit using the same techniques he teaches you.
3)He goes above and beyond.
Most eCommerce courses only teach Facebook ads, but Franklin teaches you a ton about Google, Instagram ads, and even email marketing.
4)His Facebook ads lesson is composed of more than thirty videos.
5)You can start small and work your way up to bigger fish.
6)You’ll also learn other powerful skills in Franklin’s course.
SEO is one of these skills.
7)This is one of the most thorough eCommerce courses currently on the market.
8)You get tons of free material on Franklin’s YouTube Channel.
1)Hands down, the most important part of making money with eCom is getting your products right.
Franklin only gives two examples of products.
2)”Shiny object syndrome” is a real problem with eCom.
That means that there are so many products to choose from, that you might get a little… Lost. Pick the wrong niche? You fail.
3)Product testing isn’t taught.
You don’t have to pre-emptively spend a ton of time and money setting up a store to sell Randy Savage bobbleheads (oh yeahhhh!)
You can actually test products with a landing page and a five-dollar Facebook ad.
I just found out about this recently, and I think it’s a great way to save yourself a huge financial headache when starting out.
4)Dealing with shipping can be crazy!!!
Not only do you have to make sure you get your products shipped out quickly, you also have to make sure that the manufacturer can fulfill your orders constantly.
That means pulling some late nights in your jammies slapping labels on kinko’s boxes.
International shipping means customs, and returns can be a nightmare.
Sometimes, inventory has to be stored at your house.
5)You can make more money with other online businesses.
6)Facebook ads are going to be your main source of traffic.
So when you do find clients, they’re not necessarily searching for your product.
Lazily scrolling through Facebook in your Tommy Johns and seeing something that might be cool just ain’t the same as searching for something that you need.
Facebook ads also need more babysitting than a pet alligator in a chicken coop. Seriously.
So what’s the rule number one?
Make sure you pick the right niche!
Hey, you might think my little pony pencils are like… Super cool. But you’ve gotta worry about what other people want.
You have to pay attention to market trends and learn to constantly seek out the next craze.
One ninja product that made him over $400,000 before it petered out was a waterproof cell phone charger.
He actually started testing it out on Instagram using shoutouts, and then continued marketing it with Facebook ads when he saw the gravy train start rolling on.
So what’s the scoop???
When it comes down to it, I personally don’t like the business model of eCommerce.
I guess I’m a little biased due to my own success with lead generation for local businesses , but I just can’t help but be honest with you.
Hey, maybe hustling products online is more your style.
I think that’s great if it tickles your fancy.
For me on the other hand, nothing makes me happier than forming lifelong partnerships with hard-working business owners and helping them live the lives they dream of.
Last month alone I made $50k on autopilot!
Not the mention the lifelong friendships I’ve forged with amazing people.
Wanna know more? Then keep reading.
I was lucky enough to find the most amazing and supportive group of successful marketers on the freaking planet.
So I hopped onto the computer and got started immediately, knowing that my freedom was at stake.
I needed to be free of the auto parts counter, and fast.
And you know what?
I had too many crazy plans for my life to just sit and rot away working for minimum wage.
The course was ridiculously simple and I tore into it like a raccoon with a stolen bag of chips. (Ever seen that YouTube video?)
Are you unsure what to do next? Start talking to like-minded people and see what they’re doing.
Ask how it’s going and if they love or hate certain trainings.
Read about their reviews and use that info to make the best possible decision.
As for me, I’m beyond thankful for the group I’m in.
Whenever I hit a bump in the road, I know I can always rely on help from my friends there.
I honestly can’t imagine being in any other group, these guys and girls are so incredible.
We have yearly live events like the one I just attended in Vegas this past June (And yes that’s 2019!)
We had everything from a beat boxing DJ to a guy making 7 figures just growing instagram profiles…
It. Was. Amazing.
Hey, if you’re absolutely dead set on figuring out this eCom thing and only eCommerce, I get it.
But if you’re looking to be part of a community that makes sure you grow truly passive income and pulls you forward to their level…
I definitely recommend giving it a try.
Here’s just one of many successful people that have recently shared their success in our group.
This on was posted July 1st, 2019.
Anyone can take this business model, run with it, make money right off the bat with their skill set…
And ultimately scale up to massive proportions. eCom comes and goes. This stays with you.
I don’t know about you guys, but I like my money to keep rolling in month after month like a well-oiled machine.
The income I make with this business model is truly passive, and I own every asset that I build.
That means I call the shots.
I can hire and fire my own clients as I see fit.
Another good thing?
This is an evergreen market.
As long as business owners exist… They will be hungry for leads…
Starving for leads.
And that’s exactly what we give them. And you and I both know that business owners ain’t going anywhere anytime soon.
To put it simply, I wouldn’t change where I am for all the opportunities in the world.
And that includes eCommerce.
