If you’ve been looking at getting involved with ecommerce lately to make an extra buck on the side you’ve probably come across Royston G King.
He’s making waves lately with his Trillion Dollar Growth course.
Personally, I think the name is kinda silly…”trillion dollar growth”?
Come on…Even Bezos is ONLY a billionaire, but hey, we also know .Dan Pena tried the same play on words with his “50 billion dollar man” claim to fame. It’s just marketing at the end of the day.
Scroll down for my full Trillion Dollar Growth review.
Royston is one of the newest guys in the space and he’s using clickfunnels just like all the other guru’s out there.
On his sales page you’re gonna see a long video of him talking about this opportunity that you can’t skip through.
You’ll have this big dream built up for you of living your dream life and owning your dream car. Ya know…all the classic guru hopes and dreams speech.
And if you can get through all that emotional build up, you’ll finally see what his offer is. So let’s dive in.
Actually we can’t…
Looks like Royston must be having some issues with his funnel? Because I think some things are in reverse order.
After you give him all your email and phone information, you’re taken to a testimonial page with another one of those long videos.
At the end of the page you’re encouraged to jump on one of those “strategy calls” which is just a fancy word for sales call.
Hard to wanna jump on a call when you don’t even know what you’re getting yourself into ya know?
Well if there’s no price listed and you’re going to be on a sales call…I’d say it’s safe to assume you’ll be in the ballpark of having to pay over $5,000+ given industries averages.
I just don’t think its worth it.
Not only is there seemingly no transparency and value built up front…but the ecom business model just sucks these days.
The business model itself is as old as Amazon.
Buy something for cheap and mark it up.
It’s as simple as that right?
For one thing you can’t just buy something for $5 sell for $10 and keep that $5 in profit.
It’ll dwindle down to nothing very quickly due to shipping and a whole bunch of other expenses like marketing and fees from seller platforms like amazon or shopify.
And you might say “well why don’t I just charge $20 for the product…won’t I keep more then?”
Sure, you might…but then your volume of sales is gonna take a hit…so you’d need to do a cost benefit analysis to see if it’s even worth it.
The general rule of thumb is that most ecommerce owners only take home about 10% of revenue. All those guys talking about stores that do $30,000-$40,000 per month? Yeah they’re only really pocketing $3,000-$4,000.
All those long days for peanuts?
I’d rather get started in something that’s truly mostly passive…
