A relatively new eCommerce mentor and guru bursting onto the scene with another dropshipping course and mentorship program. This time it’s Justin Woll with his eCommerce University and 90 day mastermind that can be purchased from his site Beyond Six Figures. He’s mostly promoting his services and course via Instagram but he’s also active on all the other Social Media platforms. Taking a look at his YouTube channel, he’s not really created a lot of content there and hasn’t created any videos of late. At time of writing he has just over 2500 subscribers and about 10 videos. He doesn’t appear to have a blog or any other content either.
He’s recently launched an eCommerce course and package called the “Ecommerce University” which is advertised via his personal website Beyond Six Figures. Its available for “only” $997 and supposedly comes with $8982 worth of value. These valuations always make me laugh. 1) Because they are so random and 2) Because they appear to be so drastically inflated.
He also offers a 90 Day Mastermind Program for $5000 (or $6000 if you pay in 3 installments).
Nonetheless, lets take a look at the course and what you would actually get.
His course isn’t a typical course you often see. It comes with bonus mentorship and “24/7 access to Justin Woll”. Now don’t get me wrong, but considering he is relatively new to the eCommerce space and there limited proof of his own success (his screenshots are all from students and could be copied, manipulated or faked) I’m not quite sure how useful this would be. I also highly doubt he is going to wake up in the middle of the night to reply to your messages either – especially when there are around 100 other students with this kind of access.
Anyway, lets take a look at Justin Woll and then the eCommerce University Course in greater detail.
Who is Justin Woll?
Justin Woll is a proclaimed eCommerce expert that offers mentorship to others looking to build an online business. He has set up a one-on-one mentorship agency to offer his services which are sold via BeyondSixFigures.com
He has mostly generated a following on Facebook through his associated and closed group BeyondSixFigures. It currently has 17,000 members which is obviously 8,000 lower than what he claims it to be on his site. The fact that it was created 2 years ago and has had 700 new members in the last month suggests to me that Justin likes to exaggerate!
Nonetheless, his Facebook Group appears to be one of his marketed assets as he mentions them in his bio across the platforms.
Beyond Six Figures Review
Beyond Six Figures is the website Justin uses to promote his two products: eCommerce University and his 90 Day Mentorship. The first is a ecommerce training course and the mentorship is all about trying to leverage the knowledge of Justin. Let’s now take a closer look at them.
90 Day Mentorship
Justin currently offers a 90 Day Mastermind Coaching program for $5000, or $6000 if you pay in three installments of $2000.
Considering that we have nothing to go by and assess his industry expertise and success other than a few screenshots on his site (which may have been manipulated) and other short “student” videos, these mentorship prices seem very steep. How can we really validate his expertise and experience? Other than his closed Facebook group, there is no where we can turn to get a glimpse of his methods, strategies and knowledge. He doesn’t provide any free courses, does not have any real content on YouTube, there’s no blog etc. With no mentions of refunds, signing up to his mentorship therefore appears to be very high risk.
The mentorship includes a 3 month curriculum, adset and product review/feedback, “24/7 support from Justin” and weekly calls (up to three hours).
As I may have mentioned earlier, I highly doubt Justin is going to respond 24/7. Plus he includes this in the eCommerce University, plus his training (course to be discussed below) for a fifth of the price. So your mentorship is essentially a 3 hour call, at most, per week.
3 hours of consultation time a week is not much either for the fee being charged. The use of the term “up to” also raises concern if these sessions will ever last this amount of time.
The eCommerce university is available for $997 and was created to be an eCom training course with “24/7 access” and mentorship from Justin”.
Now considering that there are just under 100 students who have succeeded with this course already (Justin’s words not mine), how much time is he really going to have answering your questions. With his mentorship and his own stores, how is he really going to be able to support you along the way?
Goal of the Course
The goal of eCommerce University is to provide you with the information, tactics and strategies that has supposedly led Justins students to build a successful eCommerce store. There’s a lot of focus and attention on his students and not once does Justin actually mention his own store or his own success?
What Justin claims you will Learn
Its not entirely sure what modules make up the course from the Sales Page alone. What content is actually included?
What he does teach you are some strategies on how to conduct product research, Facebook Ads (targeting, bidding and scaling), Instagram Influencer Marketing, Email Marketing, Business Branding.
So with the limited information available on Justin and his courses online having spent a lot of time researching, I just cannot justify paying $997-$6000 for the eCom course or his mentorship. Perhaps I will buy it in the future to complete this review, but for now I will be staying well away. Who really is Justin Woll? – what has he personally achieved and how can I be confident that he really is the expert he makes himself out to be?
The Sales Pages on Beyond Six Figures do not give any true insight into what you are actually going to get get and what you are signing up for. What are the exact modules and lessons? Instead, the Sales Pages just appear to be a myriad of student success stories which could easily have been staged and set up (along with the screenshots).
If you’re a beginner to eCommerce and dropshipping and are looking for a comprehensive and in-depth training, paying this kind of money course is very high-risk and you might end up having some buyers remorse.
Is there an alternative to Beyond Six Figures?
If you want a cost-effective yet comprehensive course that teaches you all that you need to know about building, managing and scaling a successful eCommerce store – that includes extensive: Store Setup, Facebook Ad Marketing, Instagram Strategies, Google Ads Training, Sales Funnel Training, SEO Training, Chat-bot training, – then you should check out my #1 recommendation – eCom Elites.
Best of all, the entry package costs just $197, far cheaper than the $997 you will pay for the eCommerce University, or the $5/6000 on mentorship. Heck, you could even opt for Ecom Elites Ultimate, which is $297 – and save a tonne!
Plus you would be getting a considerable amount of content from a successful eCom entrepreneur with a sound and solid reputation (and has been in the industry for several years and has in the trenches experience of building and managing an eCom store). He also is a 7 figure marketer and 2 Comm Club winner – so he has the actual experience to mentor you.
I encourage you to look at my review so you can learn why this is likely a far better choice for you. Its a complete course (175+ lessons), something that we just do not know with eCommerce University.
