One of the most popular ways to make a fortune in today’s digital world is the art of online dropshipping. With dropshipping, individuals can build an online store for nearly any interest or product catalog, and quickly sell those items to individuals around the world. The secret to dropshipping? Taking advantage of low manufacturing prices while charging a premium price that consumers will still love – and sellers will love even more!
A leading voice and inspiration in the dropshipping industry is the young eCommerce wiz-kid: Jacob Levinrad. Known for both his online dropshipping success as well as his engaging online social media content, Levinrad has quickly risen the ranks in online dropshipping fame, becoming one of the most sought-after teachers in the lucrative art of dropshipping.
Recently, Levinrad has unlocked his secrets to dropshipping in a new eCommerce course: Ecom Jacob. We recently sat down with Levinrad to learn more about his rise to fame, and what the young entrepreneur is up to now:
Jacob, tell us a bit more about your story.
I got started in dropshipping at a pretty young age. I love all things social media and digital, and I wanted to find a way to turn my interests into a way to make money. I never expected that I would begin making the money in dropshipping that I have so fast!
How much did you end up making in your first try at dropshipping?
When I got started, I thought that I would only make a little bit of extra pocket money – you know, something to help me buy the things I wanted, save a bit for college. I was blown away when my eCom store took off, and before I knew it I made over $250,000 in online sales in only six months!
You made all that while in high school?
Yeah! So I was doing all the normal things that a high school student does, and then running this crazy-successful dropshipping business in every free hour I had. It took up a lot of my free time, but I don’t regret it for a minute.
So what are you up to now that you’ve mastered the industry?
Ha! I wouldn’t say I’ve mastered the industry, but I do think that I have quite a bit of experience to offer those who are getting started in dropshipping. To help others learn and enjoy the success I’ve had, I created a new online course called Ecom Jacob.
With Ecom Jacob, I have the chance to help other sellers learn how to create their store, find clients, and use social media to reach potential customers fast. I’ve loved putting the class together, and I now have over 800 students enrolled that I’ve been able to mentor through the program – something that I may love even more!
