Empire builders, how would you like to transform your dropshipping business into a six-figure dropshipping brand? Sounds great, right? While this might seem like an unattainable dream to some, others are ready to buckle down and put in the work to turn their dreams into reality. One of our long-time Inner Circle students is the perfect example of turning dreams into reality. Javier has been involved in the Ecommerce Empire Builders community for several years and was able to take his beginner dropshipping business and turn it into a success.
I recently sat down with Javier to discuss how he went from a beginner in dropshipping to creating his own profitable brand. Read on to learn more about Javier’s six-figure ecommerce brand and how you too can create a profitable ecommerce business in 2021.
Getting Started With eCommerce
Today, Javier owns a six-figure ecommerce brand known as Finisher Secrets. The brand specializes in producing high-quality planners for entrepreneurs. I love Javier’s product, and I’m not just saying that because he’s one of my students. The Finisher’s Journal is a planner I use myself. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get on top of their scheduling and productivity. With over 250,000 followers on Instagram, I think it’s safe to say that more than a few people would also recommend the Finisher Secrets brand.
Javier has found a great deal of success with e-commerce. But he had to overcome many obstacles on his path to success. Before owning a six-figure ecommerce brand, Javier was just a guy learning the ends and outs of dropshipping. Like many individuals, Javier started with the Amazon FBA program. Javier soon realized this program would not yield him the results he wanted when he was simply competing against other sellers on price.
He wanted to do something different, so he started reading business books. Through his self-education, he began reading about sales funnels and soon signed up for a Clickfunnels account. While he liked Clickfunnels, he wasn’t making much progress on his business. However, everything began to change for the better when Javier stumbled upon an Ecommerce Empire Builders case study video on YouTube.
Finding Success Through Ecommerce Empire Builders
After watching some YouTube videos on the Ecommerce Empire Builders channel, Javier decided to take the leap and become an Inner Circle student. Javier is a very ambitious individual, and my team and I helped him channel this ambition in the right direction. Every Ecommerce Empire student learns the importance of picking a niche and finding a product within that niche that solves a problem for consumers. Javier himself struggled with productivity and planning as he was trying to juggle his new business while moving to the United States. He came up with the idea to start selling journals that helped entrepreneurs overcome procrastination and distractions.
The Finisher’s Journal that Javier came up with and designed himself was definitely a passion project. Luckily, Javier’s passion project also appealed to the masses. After Javier started obtaining sales from dropshipping journals and planners, he began talking to different suppliers about branding his own journals. Once he completed negotiations with his suppliers, Javier went to work designing the perfect planner with amazing packaging and the highest quality paper he could get.
Through it all, Javier has been very receptive to feedback from me and the Ecommerce Empire team. Any suggestion we have made, Javier has listened and executed on it. Javier’s own fortitude, combined with the guidance of the Ecommerce Empire Builders team, has allowed him to create a thriving six-figure business over the course of just a few short years.
Tips to Grow a Six-Figure eCommerce Brand
The first step to growing a six-figure ecommerce brand is simply to get started. When Javier first got started in ecommerce, he had many more questions than he had answers. While Javier has been able to obtain success in ecommerce, this success was not achieved overnight. Throughout his ecommerce journey, Javier discovered some tricks of the trade.
When I sat down with Javier, I asked him what his advice would be to other aspiring ecommerce entrepreneurs. The two most significant pieces of advice Javier gave were to
- Choose a niche you are passionate about.
- Be consistent in your approach with your business.
I love these answers and couldn’t agree more with Javier’s tips.
Entrepreneurship comes with many ups and downs. As Javier pointed out, passion will keep you going in the tough times. There will be times you are overwhelmed, depressed, or just down about how business operations are going. Being passionate about your business and the products you are selling will keep you on the right path during tough times. Along with being passionate, you must be consistent as you grow your business. You need to be willing to show up every day and put the work in. Growing a six-figure business won’t happen overnight.
However, if you remain consistent and show up every day, great progress will be achieved. Javier remained consistent with growing his brand on Instagram. He posted consistently and worked with influencers to promote his journals. As a result of his consistency, he has over 250,000 Instagram followers. This just goes to show that with passion and consistency, great things can be achieved.
