Turn Products Into Profit, Browsers Into Buyers, & Past Purchasers Into Life-Long Customers By Copying This Proven Marketing Method Developed By The Top E-Com Mavericks In The Game Today.
If you’ve been in e-commerce for any amount of time, then you’ve undoubtedly heard…”You’re Only One Product Away“.
It’s the E-com info-industry mantra that is continually repeated over and over by countless trainers, coaches, and “consultants”.
But I have a secret for you…
If you are an E-commerce marketer or store owner who is struggling to scale your store to 6-figures or more right now, read on…
The reason you need to pay attention to this page is…
Most E-com’ers are constantly being bombarded with the next latest & greatest app or traffic channel.
Everywhere you turn you’re being told you need to be using…
⛔ “influencer marketing”
⛔ “tiktok videos”
⛔ “video apps”
⛔ “the newest review app”,
⛔ “affiliate marketers”
⛔ “snapchat ads”
… and the list goes on and on.
The fact is, if you are doing all these things, all at once, you’re probably feeling spread pretty thin.
Not only is this distracting, it’s also ineffective, and more commonly leads to overwhelm, confusion, and discouragement more than it does sales.
It’s no wonder why recent stats show that 95% of all Shopify stores fail!?1
And this is at a time when you, and those other 95%, should be soaring.
Check this out…
After the global shutdown in the early part of 2020, U.S. E-commerce saw 10 years worth of growth in just 3 months! Talk about hyper growth.
And as many economists predicted, consumers’ buying habits have stuck.
In fact, the trend toward online shopping is only continuing to skyrocket.2 (See the chart below for actual Y-o-Y increases and current conservation projections from Statistia)
As a matter of fact, by the year 2040, it’s assumed that 95% of all retail purchases will be facilitated in some way by e-commerce.3
But, do you want to know the real crazy part??
All those billions of dollars in current online sales are still only 16% of all retail purchases.3
So, then why is it that almost all Shopify stores are failing when consumer demand is skyrocketing and the market is relatively untapped?
Well, because E-commerce marketers & store owners are being misguided and, as we say down here in Texas, “y’all are gettin’ the sizzle, not the steak.”
The truth is…
Let me show you something…
Above is a backend Shopify revenue report for a T-shirt company called Blackhare.
Until recently, their highest monthly revenue was a couple thousand dollars.
They struggled being just “another T-shirt shop” in a sea of Print On Demand stores.
But after focusing on a winning process over a winning t-shirt, their business EXPLODED.
In only a couple weeks of adopting this new approach, they were able to go from just a few thousand a month to well over $30k a month in a short period of time.
And this process isn’t just for beginners, …
The above is the monthly revenue report for an established jewelry business that was plateaued at about $100,000 a month.
I know that sounds like a lot but their margins were paper thin and the owners were exhausted.
Yes, they had a high sales volume but their conversions were low, traffic costs were high, and they had no time for follow up so everything was focused on front end sales.
It was more like running on a hamster wheel than running a successful store.
After focusing on a winning process, they were able to increase margins, increase customer LTV, lower new customer acquisition and, as a result, were able to scale to over $300,000 a month PLUS do it with less stress and anxiety.
The reason that these E-commerce owners and marketers were able to turn their slumping stores into profitable powerhouses is because of a proven process called…
The E-commerce “Tree of Life” is one of the core concepts to building a profitable, sustainable, and scalable E-commerce store.
This process is made up of 4 Key Pillars to success:
Pillar 1: The Roots – This is about establishing the foundational elements so your store can truly take root by determining the right offer to the right market with the right positioning
Pillar 2: The Base – This is your online store, which requires incredibly strong foundations to support your business. This is the 1st part of your business that is visible to the world. This is made up of your proven product pages, branded store front, and basic automations (like email) that are all tested and proven to convert your customers. (i.e. certain to bring your water to your roots!)
Pillar 3: The Trunk – This is your first traffic source that predictably leads to sales. It’s the first customer acquisition channel that you master, which you can reliably depend on for sales. What’s most important here is that you don’t get distracted trying to get sales from 10 channels at once, before mastering one. Focus on only ONE branch until that is a repeatable and reliable source of sales for your business. ONE acquisition channel is enough to build a 6-figure, if not 7-figure business.
Pillar 4: The Branches – Once you have at least one sustainable branch to your business you can begin to build out additional acquisition arms ( or funnels) of your business. To go full bloom, you also don’t need to depend on solely paid advertising channels. Your tree could include things such as pop-up shops, wholesaling, affiliate and influencer channels, and other profit centers for your business.
(The leaves are your profits when this tree grows in harmony)
Here’s Scott Cunningham, founder of an 8-figure E-com agency, and instructor in this course, to explain further
As you can see, when you follow this process, it virtually eliminates the 2 biggest problems that most E-commerce marketers and owners face…
No one wants to waste time or money on traffic they don’t know is going to convert!
And, without traffic, you can’t get any sales.
That’s the marketers dilemma and that’s why this process was developed.
See, when you start by…
✅ Validating your product to market match*
✅ Apply the perfect positioning* and…
✅ Use proven product pages that are sure to convert*
NOW you are in a position to truly judge the effectiveness of a marketing campaign.
If you know people want a product, you know who wants it, and you know the product’s pages are proven to convert then the only variable is the platform.
Isolating the variables in your E–com equation is how the pros slowly, safely, and systematically test their offers.
Then, it’s only a matter of time until your KPIs (key performance indicators) line up, you have your winner, and you can scale…hard!
The E-commerce Tree of Life approach ensures you reduce the trial and error, wasted ad spend, and that nagging unknowing if you are doing things right.
It also makes sure that once you do find success, it is based on a strong and stable foundation that can support scale as opposed to luck, hope, or happenstance.
In fact, this process has been proven so many times now, we can confidently say that…
And that is exactly what we want to help you do!

This is an “On-demand” training that you can access at any time.
Once your payment is submitted, you will receive an email with your login details for our flagship product, DigitalMarketer Academy, where you’ll be able to access the training. It is a go-at-your-own-pace training so you don’t have to worry about missing anything.
You can move at your own pace! We understand that life happens and that just because you enroll today, that doesn’t mean you’ll be able to finish (or even start) the class this week. And that’s ok! Take as long as you like. We aren’t going anywhere, and neither is this certification.
No. A certification that can simply be purchased isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. That’s why our courses are challenging. If we’re going to allow you to display a DigitalMarketer badge, you better believe you’re going to have to earn it.
The certification is actually included for free, with the class itself making up 100% of the cost. Consider the personalized certification and badge an added bonus and proof of your distinguished achievement as a E-Commerce Marketing Specialist.
You’ll find that the test is “satisfyingly difficult.” By that I mean, it’s difficult enough that you need to actually know the materials, but it isn’t tricky or difficult just for the sake of being difficult. That said, to preserve the exclusivity and importance of this designation, we have made the tests challenging. The questions do pertain to our proprietary methodologies, so you shouldn’t expect to pass the test just because you have taken other marketing trainings or courses in the past. This training is different, and the exams will reflect those differences.
It is not required though it is recommended. This certification focuses on the marketing side of E-commerce, not the store set up process.
We will focus a lot on store and product page optimization, so having a fully built out store is not required, but having an operating store with at least a few products is encouraged to get the most out of this training the fastest.
Before spending a ton on advertising, we’ll give you a step-by-step process for validating your product to market match, your sales positioning, and give you proven templates and copy for your product pages, store, and ads.
Many times marketers try a platform without these foundational elements in place and THAT is why a certain platform or traffic channel falls flat.
We encourage you to follow this process as it is laid out in the certification before making decisions on which traffic channels work or don’t.
In addition, we focus on the fundamentals to running E-commerce marketing in this certification so these processes can be applied to almost any social media or online advertising platforms.
That said, we do use Facebook as the teaching tool in this certification.
No! We’ll give you templates for high-converting product pages that you can implement with zero coding experience
