If you are interested in starting up a dropshipping business, then you will no doubt have stumbled across countless courses.
The problem is that many of these courses can't be trusted. Many of them have been put together by unknowns who clearly have no idea what they are doing in the world of dropshipping.
Netsphere from Arie Scherson bucks this trend. This is because this guy has proven he knows what he is talking about. He has proven you can rely on his knowledge. I will discuss that in a bit more depth throughout this Netsphere review.
What is Netsphere?
Netsphere bills itself as a Shopify course.
in Netsphere you will be going through, step-by-step, how to create a profitable Shopify store using a combination of dropshipping and Facebook ads. The method detailed in Netsphere is a rather simple method, but it is one that works. It is one that is probably going to work for many years to come too.
If you are interested in building an online store, then this is going to be a tremendous place to start. Everything that you need to know about getting the money rolling in is detailed throughout this 20-hour video course.
There is a bit more on top of the actual course content, though. You will also have access to a community of like-minded people. All of these will also be following the Netsphere course, so you are free to ask them as many questions as you want. There will also be some templates that you can use to make running your business a little bit easier.
The cost of Netsphere is as follows:
If you have looked at the pricing for other similar courses, then you will know that this is a rather interesting way of doing things. Most courses cost way more than the lifetime membership cost here.
They will also not have monthly pricing for those who may have a stricter budget. This means that Netsphere may catch the attention of those that have limited funds to start their business up.
Who is Arie Scherson?
Arie Scherson is an online marketer. Over the years, he has dabbled in several different areas of marketing.
More recently, you are able to find him working in the area of dropshipping.
He makes the bold claim that he has earned over 7-figures from dropshipping alone, but it is tough to verify his claim.
Remember what I said earlier about how this is a guy that has proven to know what he is doing? Well, he has a YouTube channel with a shade over 81,000 subscribers. His content is pretty much all focused on dropshipping. In the past, he had a video series where he built a profitable Shopify store from scratch.
It was pretty much 'over the head' training. It utilized a very similar method to the one that you will find in Netsphere. Since this guy has absolutely created profitable Shopify stores, you can trust his information a lot more than you can trust the information from other course creators.
Netsphere Review & Course Curriculum
Netsphere has about 20-hours of content spread out over several modules. I am going to tackle each module one-by-one and tell you a little bit about what it brings to the table.
Do note I am going to jump right in at module 2. I am not going to talk about the first module as this is nothing more than an introduction to the course. You aren't really going to learn anything there.
This module is all about laying the groundwork for your online store. You will be introduced to Shopify and how you can use it to create an e-commerce store from scratch in just a few hours. You will also be taught a little bit about branding your Shopify store. This includes information on logo creation, choosing your payment methods, etc.
There is some basic information about what makes an online store successful. This includes learning how to choose your niche, how many products you should add to your store, and some tips and tricks that can increase site conversions.
The major highlight of this module is Arie's 'over the head' video where he creates his own Shopify store from scratch.
There is a ton of information here. It does seem a little bit disjointed at times, and I can't help but feel the various videos that make up the module could have been a slightly more logical order. However, this module does serve as a pretty decent introduction for beginners.
Finding Winning Products
As you can probably tell from the name of this module, it is all about hunting down products to sell in your store. Remember, this is a course about dropshipping.
This means that you are really just finding dropshipping suppliers. When an order is placed on your site, you will place the order with your supplier.
It will be their responsibility to ship the product to your customer. This means you will never have to physically hold stock, and you will only pay when you have received an order.
This module talks about how to use trends to find products. You will also learn about filler products i.e. the ones that aren't going to make the majority of your sales but will round out the store a little bit. All in all, a ton of decent product sourcing methods were discussed.
There is a major downside to this module, though. You see, it focuses very heavily on product selection but there is less information on supplier selection. This is a bit annoying because when you are dropshipping, you do need to know that the supplier is going to be trustworthy otherwise your entire business will crumble.
The next module will talk you through how you can find influencers to promote your products for you. It will give you guidance on how to select the best influencers and, perhaps more importantly, how you can ensure that the influencer will increase your sales.
This is one of the shortest modules on the course, but it does share some valuable marketing. I certainly love the fact that a module on Influencer Marketing has been included. It shows that this product is a bit more modern and 'up to date' with marketing trends.
A lot of courses never touch upon Influencer Marketing, which is a huge shame because when it is done right, influencer marketing has the potential to make you a lot of money.
The Art of Facebook Ads
This module marks the start of three modules about Facebook Ads. As you can probably guess, this is how you are going to be generating the majority of the traffic for your site.
This module just introduces you to Facebook ads. It tells you how they work, how you can budget your ads, and how you can work out how much you should be paying for an ad on Facebook Ads.
This is all simple information, but it provides a nice foundation for the next couple of modules.
Facebook Ad Testing
This is probably the lengthiest module on the course. It includes some more 'over the head' training where Arie will go through a video of him creating ads on Facebook i.e. ones that have been proven to work for him.
This module is so much more than just about testing, despite the name. You will be guided through the process of creating your ad. You will then learn about split testing, how to determine whether your ads are successful, how to increase ad engagement, and ensuring that you get the biggest bang for your buck with your advertising spend. This is just scratching the surface of the information you will find in this module.
There is a lot of content here, and it comes at you thick and fast. I feel that this module would have been better split up into a couple of modules. It would have been easier for the viewer. However, I have absolutely no complaints about the actual content.
Advanced Facebook Ads
The final Facebook ad module will help you to take your advertising to the next level.
You will learn more about segmenting your audience so you target specific groups of people. You will learn about dynamic product adverts.
There is a lot of information here about lookalikes too (i.e. your ideal customer) and this is something that I haven't seen many other courses mention. So, I have a ton of praise for Arie for including something rather complicated, yet effective, in his course.
Building Backend Systems for Automation
As the name suggests, this module is about automating your business. You will learn a little bit about upselling, email marking, chatbots, etc.
There is a 12-minute video that talks a little bit about gaining organic traffic outside of Facebook ads. However, I really do not feel that there is enough depth there for it to have any value. It is more of a video that suggests other ways to gain traffic. You will need to put in the work yourself to learn how to do that.
Building a Long Term Business
This module talks a lot about things I have not seen in other courses. This is because Arie really seems to want to help you to plan to expand your business.
One area that he covers in a bit of depth is setting up your own affiliate schemes to attract sales to your business. You also learn about improving your ads, and even creating your own content. I feel that this module is heavily focused on those that want to build a brand.
As I said, the information that you find here is good. I just wish there was a whole lot more of it. However, since Arie is the only person that has really tackled this sort of information, something is better than nothing, right?
Pros & Cons
Netsphere is an affordable course for those that want a decent introduction to Shopify and dropshipping without breaking the bank.
While Netsphere does have a few limitations in the method that it introduces, there is some information here that I can see people making money from.
For that reason, I do recommend that you at least check out Netsphere, even if it is to only pick up a membership for a month. You may discover that it is the right course for you.
