Are dropshipping courses worth the money in 2021?

Let me start off by saying that most paid dropshipping courses out there are expensive, like $500+.

Now, let me ask you this question: would you rather spend your hard-earned money to improve and grow your dropshipping business, or do you want to learn dropshipping for that same amount of money?

You will learn below that there are so many ways to learn dropshipping for free.

This way you can keep your hard-earned money and spend it to start and grow your dropshipping store!

That’s awesome, right?

Facebook Blueprint

Free Dropshipping Course: Facebook Blueprint

Yes, this is not a free dropshipping course, but for most dropshipping store owners, Facebook is one of their most important advertisement platforms.

That’s why I think it’s great to learn it from the best. You can learn a lot about Facebook & Instagram for free here.

You can become a Facebook Ad expert with these free courses from Facebook!

I mean, who knows Facebook better than Facebook themselves, right? You can even take an exam to become a Facebook certified professional.

This might be hard if you’re just beginning, but it’s still awesome that it’s possible, and maybe you can set passing a Facebook exam as a goal for your future!

It’s always great to have goals in your life.

7 awesome free YouTube dropshipping courses

Some great information about dropshipping is on YouTube for free.

Just be careful with most of those so-called “gurus.” Like I said before, their only goal is to sell you something (like a course).

I suggest watching these videos below, but if you don’t like what you see or you already know it, just skip a bit.

Don’t forget to take everything from these “gurus” with a grain of salt, and only apply what you like.

Don’t think like, “Oh, but he made millions with that super-secret tactic – I need to do exactly that, and I will be rich tomorrow!”

No, you will not.

It takes time and hard work before you succeed; I’m sorry if that crushed your dreams, but you need to treat your dropshipping store like a real business in order to succeed!

Also, most of these “gurus” use Shopify – I do too – but you can use any ecommerce platform that you like. (You can find Shopify alternatives here)
