Its not a scam. Its very authentic. Disclaimer:- I attended different ecommerce courses before, both local and USA markets. You are not going to get rich just by attending the course . There are a lot of thinking, planning and hardwork to get to the passive income stage (meaning your company has many staff running the operations). If you refuse to attend such courses, y ou can learn on your own , via googling, via youtube learning, via checking with the platform guides (Qoo10, Lazada, Amazon all have self-help guide), you can definitely do it on your own. What the course can do for you is to cut short this learning curve by a lot. Some pple may take 6months, some may take 2 years etc. These courses usually help by summarising what does not work (via their experience) and what works to you so you can save the trouble, the time, and usually the money. I have learnt from https://decisivemarketer.com/ and also a free group https://www.facebook.com/groups/158010781507949/ Both paid and free provides different varying level of support. Did I make back the money i paid to my mentor? Of course. It was a long struggle without going through the paid course, and I am glad I gave up learning on my own and seek help. Even with the paid course material, i still need time and effort to slowly apply and scale up my business. Do learn if you can afford the time and money. but do not think its a get-rich-scheme. You need to work hard!
