Are you thinking of buying the Dropship Lifestyle course (DSL) but don’t want to invest thousands of dollars.
I took the course and am now writing a review. Many of the reviews I read were outdated or completely misleading. This course is regularly updated, so any information older than a few weeks is likely to be incorrect.
Let me be clear: There’s a reason why this course is priced as high as it is. Shopify voted it best Dropshipping Course. It’s the best available and gives you the blueprint to scaling up to six figures.
It’s not right for everyone. Before you make this investment, take your time and read this review.
What is Dropship Lifestyle and Dropshipping?
Dropshipping is an eCommerce option where the retailer sets up a shop and sells products, but doesn’t keep them in stock. Instead, you place orders and the manufacturer fulfills them. The product can be sold at any price that you wish, and you keep the profits after you have paid the manufacturer. The customer is happy, you’re happy and the manufacturer is happy.
Anton Kraly created the Dropship Lifestyle in 2013 as a high-end dropshipping program. The course teaches students Anton Kraly’s 7-step plan for setting up and scaling an eCommerce business that uses dropshipping. This business model is unique in that you don’t need to keep the products in stock.
This includes product selection, Shopify design and location, social media, advertising, doing business abroad, outsourcing, and finally selling your store (and retiring on the beach in Asia). You can find out more.
DSL offers a complete blueprint for success and personal coaching. This is in contrast to many courses that only give you the information and leave you on the road. Anton is the man behind many successful eCom shops (more on Anton next). He used a specific and repeatable system to do it all.
Dropship Lifestyle is the same internal system, but packaged in simple and easy-to-follow modules. It was created in 2013 and has grown to be more than that. It is now a fully-fledged lifestyle that offers retreats and conventions all over the globe.
Who is Anton Kraly, you ask?
Anton Kraly founded Dropship Lifestyle and is its CEO. He has built and managed dozens of successful eCom shops in highly competitive niches. Although I am a little cynical, I still have great respect for him. I have even met him multiple times. Anton is a humble builder of stores that exceed $1 million in sales, in an industry filled with “gurus” who underpromise and overhype.
His story is familiar. After college, he was lost, he was tied down to a job that he didn’t like, and he had little to no money until he discovered eCommerce. That is something I can relate to.
In 2007, he founded his first eCom shop with a $29 investment. He reached $1 million in sales within two years. Dropship Lifestyle was born when he realized the incredible lifestyle eCommerce offered and the financial security it afforded.
His goal is freedom through entrepreneurship. This is done through DSL, his YouTube Channel and other initiatives.
This is the first sign that Anton is legitimate. He does the right thing.
What makes Dropship Lifestyle different from other dropshipping courses?
Dropshipping courses are plentiful. Dropship Lifestyle is a great investment.
DSL is not for everyone. Different people may not be able to learn in the same way. It is possible that you don’t have the funds. You may not be interested in extra perks such as a lifestyle retreat.
Keep watching: In section 5, I give a breakdown on exactly what you will get. This is what I consider the best part of the course.
There are several reasons why this course is my favourite out of all the others I have taken or discussed with other members of the community.
Personal coaching is second to none: With enough dedication, you can learn almost all there is about dropshipping online. Courses offer quick access to expert tips and structure as well as expert coaching from others who have done it before. Anton has helped more than 10,000 students succeed, having built several million-dollar businesses in difficult niches. His coaching is hands-on might be the best value.
The Anton Method: It has his name on it! Dropshipping circles are well-known for the Anton Method. The Anton Method is a hacker who “hacked” the system long before it was even a system. He is actually THE SYSTEM. It’s high-ticket, repeatable business that will allow you to scale to six figures or more. Anton shows you how to identify low-volume, high profit sales with repeat customers, instead of hundreds of small-profits that require extra oversight and upkeep. $$$$$!
Constant Updates: Anton is not only an expert on his S ***,, but also keeps up to date. Many courses are great and haven’t been updated for years. Anton is always updating his courses and just released version 7.0. This will give you the most recent tips and strategies. Dropshipping is constantly evolving. Dropshipping is not the same as it was in 2016.
Google Product Listing Ads: Anton guides you beyond the basics of Facebook Ads and shows you how to master Google Product Listing Ads. These have a higher ROI than FB ads because of their intent. Instead of showing ads to people scrolling through their feeds, he shows you how to target customers searching for buy-now keywords with the best ads. $$$.
Your Shopify Store Design and Optimization are done for you Without proper optimization, your store won’t be profitable. Shopify voted DSL the best eCom course, and that speaks for itself. Anton actually designs your store (well, he does it with his team, but you get my point) exactly in the same way he used to make billions of dollars dropshipping. The other courses will show you how to do it, but you’ll have to figure it all out yourself. Anton takes the guesswork out of designing your store, installing plugins and worrying about whether you did it correctly.
This is on top of all the DSL community retreats. Although I am a bit of an introvert, these retreats look great! There’s nothing wrong with learning how to make six figures in exotic, far-flung locations.
Did You Know? Did You Know? Dropship Lifestyle is home to over 10,000 students in 25 countries. Dropship Lifestyle is more than a course.
What is the Dropship Lifestyle cost?
Dropship Lifestyle is $2,997 per Premium package and $4.997 per Ultimate package. This includes a Shopify store and a 2021 retreat ticket. It also includes 1 year of private coaching.
Are you aware of the elephant in your room? IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE. Let Kevin, from Home Alone, sum up the general consensus.
However, you get what your pay for. This package includes everything you need to set up your shop and coach you through it. He will fly you to exotic locations to help you learn and party with the best.
This won’t be cheap!
Although this is the most expensive course available, you will get every penny back if you follow the advice.
Is the Premium Option enough? Do I need to get the Ultimate Package?
The Premium option is great if you don’t have enough money. This guide will show you how to build a successful eCommerce shop. The blueprint, Anton’s dropship labs, Anton’s business forum, Anton’s social media and Google Ads training and Anton’s personal supplier directory will be included.
It will be you and your own. There will be no personal coaching, community retreats, or anything done for you. You can speed up the process by spending $2,000 more and have a structure that is profitable in no time. You’ll also get to meet up at a fancy retreat, where you can grow your network and gain insider tips. It’s worth the effort, even if it costs more than you can afford.
What’s Included in the Dropship Lifestyle Course
DSL is a beast of a course. I won’t give you every grainy detail of each module.
Let me give you a quick overview of:
- The Blueprint
- Different training sessions
- These extras will help you to scale the course
- The Ultimate Package includes Bonuses
- Version 7.0 updates (extremely critical)
Let’s get started. There’s a lot of ground to cover.
This course is video-based, just like every other course. This is just a quick reminder.
First… DSL Broken Down into 7 Modules
Niche Selection: Anton demonstrates his method for selecting high-value products within niches. He has seen many stores go and come, so he is well-versed in the process. He wants to help you find a niche that can propel your store to the seven-figure mark. Of course, nothing is certain.
Anton will show you his tips for market research to ensure you get the most out of your products. The “Anton Method” is a patented method that allows you to choose products with many styles and variations, as well as products customers are willing to wait (to get positive reviews).
Creating Your Store/Site: This module allows you to access Dropship Lifestyle Shopify and shows how to create a beautiful, conversion-optimized store.
Locating Suppliers: Anton will show you how to choose suppliers and classify them into different categories. The best part about the course is that he will give you his phone number and email address so that you can apply for approval. This will make it easy to communicate with suppliers you have never met before.
CRO Mastery: Conversion rate optimization (CRO) refers to the art/science that increases the likelihood of a visitor purchasing. Buyer psychology is influenced by the layout of your site, its pricing, and even its colors. Anton will share his knowledge and help you maximize your ROI with ads by increasing conversion rates.
Traffic! Module 6 is the place where things get really juicy. This 11-course visitor-gasm feast will show you how to bring in targeted traffic with purchase intent. You’ll find buyers everywhere on the internet, including Google, Facebook and Instagram.
Outsourcing and automation (New to Version 7.0): There is only so much that one person can do. Anton was unable to achieve a million-dollar success before he learned how to delegate and automate. Module 7 covers everything you need about scaling to Mars, the Moon, and other distant planets within a lightyear of the Crab Nebula.
It’s obvious that I have already mentioned it, but I want to quickly summarize the Ultimate package upgrades.
Private coaching for one year: Anton and his 6- and 7-figure coaches will guide you through every step and keep you on track. This is a hard course, and anyone who doesn’t want to give up on it will be thrown off the train.
2021 ticket retreat: Get your picture taken, network, party, and show your friends that you do DSL right. It’s this year in Prague. Prague is amazing. You must go there.
Anton and his team will create a Shopify store for you. Your Shopify store will be instantly ready, just like Anton does for million-dollar stores. It’s pretty sweet.
You can get private coaching, retreats, and the management of your store by experts for $2,000 more. If you have the funds, it’s definitely worth it. It will be easy to make it back within a few months.
DSL Specifications: What’s in the Modules?
This was just a brief overview. But let’s get into the details.
- The DSL Blueprint7.0 (upgrades discussed below)
- The DSL Shopify theme and app
- Access to the Business Forum for life
- Access to six-figure coaching for your store’s growth
- Mastery of social media traffic
- Google Product Ads Mastery
- Anton’s personal supplier list
- Course on Outsourcing and Doing business abroad
- How to sell your store when the time is right (and make more than it’s worth).
This is a lot of value. If you do everything right, there’s no reason to not have a profitable store quickly. This information is not available online and isn’t as clear or actionable.
Dropship Lifestyle’s latest version is a significant improvement on the previous, so it’s a great time to get in. Dropshipping is still possible, and the course is even better.
Dropship Lifestyle Upgrades – What’s New in Version 7.0? (READ THIS!
This is extremely important and I could not find it in any other reviews.
DSL v7.0 represents a major upgrade to previous versions. Anton’s course is another reason I like it. Other popular courses, such as *COUGH ECom Hacks COUGH*, have not been updated in two years. Anton regularly releases new and improved versions.
So, what’s new?
Anton said that he worked hard for weeks to make some improvements to the course.
You’re really lucky if you just want to get in. This will give you a huge advantage over people who purchased the course many years ago. Even though it’s more expensive, I’m getting so much information that I didn’t know when I started.
A new Welcome Module for Laying Better Foundations
I have been involved in eCom for a while so I already had the majority of this information. These foundational upgrades are a huge help for people just starting out.
- Foundations of eCommerce
- Foundations of Online Business
- Understanding Your Why
- Drop Ship Code of Ethics
Enhanced Niche Selection Module
Anton goes even deeper to help you gain an edge in a competitive market. He gets philosophical.
- Product size, weight, and profit
- Passion vs. Profit
- There are many examples of good and bad niches
Current Market Research Strategies
Although the 2021 market is saturated with competitors, if you look at the margins you can still make huge profits.
Anton has created new content that is centered around:
- Create Your Master List of “Future Competitors”.
- Extracting Suppliers for Your Master List
- What is too much competition?
Revamped Supplier Approval Procedures
Retailers are bombarded with applications from suppliers. You need to be able to stand out. Anton shows you how Anton can get approved for 2021.
- Drop Ship Supplier Research
- Trust is everything
- Good and Bad Stores
- Scripts for Email and Phone
- FAQs for Suppliers (What They Want)
- Supplier Relations (Terms, Pricing and Exclusivity)
- Optimizing for Conversions
- Take advantage of their weakness
- Design should be more about usability than design
- You can ethically spy on your visitors
A complete Outsourcing and Automation Module
You can’t scale up and achieve BEAST mode on your own. Anton has a blueprint that will help you delegate tasks and automate processes so that you can concentrate on what really matters: GROWTH.
- Your Automation Toolkit
- Automated Carts Abandoned
- Google Sheets Automation
- Automated Order Tracking and Reviews
- Automated Custom Orders
- Automated Content Distribution
This isn’t the first upgrade, and it won’t be the last
Blueprint v7.0, an update to the Dropship Lifestyle dropshipping course, is another. This is 7 updates since 2013 when the course was launched. This is an average of around 1 per year. There is no comparable course.
As I said, Anton’s course has a huge advantage over most other courses because of the amount of effort he puts into updating and upgrading everything.
DSL is the best dropshipping course. Although it is expensive, the one-time fee gives you lifetime access and all the latest information about dropshipping/Shopify/eCommerce.
Some competitors haven’t updated their courses for years…and others haven’t updated them at any point. Competition has heated up in the eCom industry. Most suppliers won’t consider you unless your qualifications are met, and even then, you must know how to pitch them.
This was not true even a few years back, but times have changed. Anton created a new module to help him find suppliers. He even gives the exact SCRIPTS that helped him get amazing deals with suppliers in niches that are competitive.
Dropshipping courses that are taught in 2016 are my biggest pet peeve. It’s a red flag if “gurus” or coaches are too lazy to update their courses.
This course is frequently asked questions by me so I decided to create a section that answers these questions. Guess the title of this section.
I would love to throw you a knuckleball, but this section is simply called FAQ.
Q: Is Dropship Lifestyle Legit?
Dropship Lifestyle isn’t a scam.
- Dropshipping failure or failure to complete the course.
- Competitors who want you to buy another product
Let’s look at some evidence that Dropship Lifestyle is not a fraud:
It won the SHOPIFY Award for Best eCommerce Course of The Year!
Shopify is the largest eCommerce platform in the world. Shopify generates over 1 BILLION DOLLARS annually. There are over 4,000 employees. Their stock is sold for more than $350 per share.
Why would they lie about a dropshipping course and promote it? It would be absurd. They want to make money. They want to make money, so it is in their best interest to recommend only the best courses.
They could endanger their entire business if they promote a fraud.
DSL has helped over 10,000 people achieve success
The gang seems to be doing well, including Carla, Lewis, Jeremy, and Jeremy. Reviews online should be taken with a grain, except for this one. However, 10,000 students, a brand that is world-famous, and appearances in major publications prove this to be 100% legitimate.
Anton is a boss and he’s been in major magazines, on TV and all over the web
Anton has been featured in Forbes and Entrepreneur. DSL is as well-known as any industry name.
Q: What is the cost of a dropship lifestyle?
Dropship Lifestyle is $2,997 per package, and $4,997 per package for the ultimate. The ultimate package includes a retreat ticket as well as a Shopify store that is done for you.
Q: What’s the Dropship Lifestyle Retreat?
A: Dropship lifestyle is more than just a course. Dropship Lifestyle is a way of living, a community and a blueprint. Anton organizes a retreat each year for all participants in the course.
He suggests that you think of it as a work-cation, where you can learn from the best and mingle with your peers…all in exotic places like Thailand, Hawaii, or the Czech Republic.
The retreat will be held in Prague, Czech Republic this year. Grab the Ultimate Package to enjoy a night of partying in Prague, Czech Republic. You will also learn how to start a dropshipping business that can make six figures.
Q: Can a Dropship Lifestyle be a good option for beginners?
A: Yes. This course is designed to help you go from zero to six-figures with no experience.
Q: Is Anton Kraly Legit
A: There are a lot of wannabe gurus who don’t know what they’re talking.
Anton is exactly the opposite. Anton has built multiple online stores worth millions of dollars and has mastered some of the most difficult niches. He is an expert in his field and a dedicated coach.
Q: Is dropshipping still profitable in 2021?
A: Yes. Although it’s not as simple as it used to, you can still make a lot with the right strategy.
Q: What makes DSL so expensive?
A: It is definitely expensive. It’s not something I will sugarcoat. It’s well worth it.
This is a step by step guide to growing a store from zero to six figures. Anton and his team will build your store for you, teach you how to market it and find the best suppliers. He then guides you through every step of the process personally.
THEN, HE FLYES YOU TO AN EXOTIC PLACE TO PARTY.
