At Last, You'll Have A Step-By-Step Process & All The Tools You Need to...
Make More Sales &
Profit From Your
(HINT: The process looks something like this...)
Every day, more and more people are shopping online.
According to research from eMarketer, ecommerce sales nearly doubled from 2008 to 2014...
And they're on pace to nearly double again by 2019.
With more people shopping online, there are fewer people shopping in stores...as you can see in this chart from the Wall Street Journal:
The writing on the wall is clear: if you sell products directly to consumers, you NEED a high-converting ecommerce store.
...even if you already have a profitable physical store.
And if you're a marketer or an agency, you NEED to know how to improve sales for your ecommerce clients.
Here's the problem:
As more companies enter the ecommerce marketplace, the competition is growing fierce. It's getting harder and harder to stand out from the noise.
"Mediocre marketing" just won't cut it.
And that's exactly why we can make this claim...
FACT: Companies Need Ecommerce Marketing Specialists
(...Who Actually Know What They're Doing)
What's the one thing that separates a successful ecommerce company...
...from an unsuccessful one?
Of course it's important to offer high-quality products and provide top-notch customer service.
But those things—by themselves—aren't enough.
After all, you could offer the best product in the world...
But if nobody knows it exists...
If nobody knows how great it is...
Then nobody is going to buy your amazing product.
That's why the #1 thing that separates successful ecommerce stores from unsuccessful ones is great marketing.
In your gut, you probably know this is true.
Knowing exactly how to get your products in front of the right people... Persuading those people to buy... And maximizing the value of each and every transaction...
(Over and over again...)
...is the key to ecommerce success.
That's why we created the Ecommerce Marketing Masterclass & Certification program.
This program will teach you absolutely everything you need to optimize any ecommerce store to generate more sales & profit.
You'll know how to optimize an ecommerce website, how to generate ecommerce traffic, how to write ecommerce emails, and much more.

Who Should Get Certified
Grow in your career, and get everyone else in your company on the same page, and speaking the same language
There's nothing harder than managing a team where everyone speaks a different language. So let us fix that for you.
Directors & VPs
Give your managers and employees the training they need, so you can stay focused on strategy and execution.
When your team can truly deliver the goods, you can truly serve your clients...and increase billable hours.
Founders & CEOs
Running a business is hard enough without also having to worry about sales and marketing, so let us worry about it, instead.
Why Should You Get Certified?
If you're an individual...
...this certification will set you apart from the pack.
Unlike everyone else who simply calls themselves a "ecommerce marketing expert," you'll have the certificate and the badge to prove it, from a source that businesses trust.
More importantly, it will make you a better marketer.
Why? Because you're receiving the exact same training you would receive as an employee at DigitalMarketer. (And without tooting our horn too much, we're pretty good at this stuff!)
And we held nothing back.
So, if you want to:
- Enhance your career (or start a new one)
- Learn the latest and greatest tactics (that actually work)
- Expand your skill set, distance yourself from the competition, and jump to a higher pay grade...
...this course and certification is for you.
If you're a business owner...
...maybe you don't need the certification.
But what about your team? Do you know for a fact that they're up to speed on all the latest and greatest ecommerce marketing strategies?
If you're not sure, or if you just want them to receive the exact same training the team at DM receives, then get them certified!
They'll love the fact that you're investing in them, and you'll love the fact that they're performing at the highest level possible for your company.
Also, there's no rule that you have to sit for the test. If the training is more important to you than the certification, then just take the training and look at the test as an optional extra. (But if I were you I'd take it anyway just to make sure you're fully grasping all the concepts.)
Oh yeah, and if you're an agency or other marketing professional, then you already know how important certifications are to distancing yourself from the competition. And who knows? It might even help you claim higher fees for the work you're already doing.
Either way, if you expect the best for your company, then this course and certification is for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: "How will this certificate help me?"
A: It depends on who you are...
If you're a business owner, this certification is a great way to learn demand-based traffic yourself. It's also a great way to train and certify members of your own team to ensure that they're up to speed on the latest trends and best practices.
If you're an agency, this certification is a tangible way to show that you are a Certified Ecommerce Marketing Specialist, which could help you attract and retain better, higher-paying clients.
If you're a student, this certificate can set you apart from other graduates who merely have a business or marketing degree, but specialized skills that employers today are desperately seeking.
If you're an employee or marketing professional, this certificate can make you more valuable to your company, which is the surest way to get that raise or promotion you likely already deserve (but don't have a tangible reason to request).
Q: "How valuable is this certification?"
A: The certification itself is highly valuable if you need to set yourself apart from the competition. What's far more valuable than any badge or certificate, however, is the actual knowledge you're going to receive when you take this class and pass all the tests. You will know ecommerce marketing. I'll say that again: YOU WILL KNOW ECOMMERCE MARKETING.
Q: "What if I fail? Am I allowed to retake the test?"
A: Yes, you make retake the test up to 2 times (for a total of 3 attempts). After 3 failed attempts, you will be required to retake the class (which you can do for free) and all the module quizzes prior to attempting the final exam again.
Q: "How long do I have to complete the class and take the test once I am enrolled?"
A: 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.
Q: "How long does it take to finish the course and receive my certification?"
A: This class is 4 hours of video training, so if you are working at it full-time you could technically complete the class and take all the tests in one day (although this is not recommended). To fully understand and apply the materials, you should allow 3 - 7 days if you are working full-time, and 14 - 21 days if you taking the class part-time.
Q: "Am I guaranteed to get certified if I take the class?"
A: 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.
Q: "I don't care about the certification...can I just audit the class?"
A: Right now the cost for the class is $495. Ordinarily the sit fee for the certification exam is $500, but currently we have waved that fee and are allowing students to take the exam up to 3 times for free. This will change in the future, at which time we may allow non-certification candidates to audit our classes at a discounted rate, but the price will never be lower than $495.
Q: "How difficult is the test?"
A: 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 and the questions do pertain to our proprietary methodologies, so you shouldn't expect to be able to pass the test just because you have taken other ecommerce trainings or courses in the past. This training is different, and the exams will reflect those differences.
Q: "What platforms are discussed in this training?"
A: Ezra focuses on Shopify stores, but the information covered throughout the course is technology agnostic. The methods and training is focused on ecommerce strategies and can be applied using the platform of your choice.

DigitalMarketer Is Different
Yes, you can find other trainings and certifications that cover similar topics, but a DigitalMarketer certification is unique because it's built and taught by real marketers who actually sell their own products and services online.
In other words, we aren't journalists or "researchers." We're in-the-trenches doers who despise untested theory and believe that the best way to learn something is to roll up your sleeves and get your hands a little dirty. If that sounds appealing, then welcome! You've found your home.
