I was on my Facebook account the other day simply scrolling down my newsfeed as I sometimes do. As I scrolled down my newsfeed an advertisement caught my eye, an advertisement for ShirtSchool.com.
I’ll withhold what my immediate thought was at that moment but I will tell you that I decided to click through and watch the “pitch video” asking me to enter my name and email address so that I could reserve my seat for the introductory class.
I laid down with my dachshund on the love seat in my family room, began to watch and was introduced to the inventor of ShirtSchool.com, one Mr. Kerry Egeler.
Mr. Egeler proceeded to tell his story. How he was earning a good living, earning approximately $80,000 per year and was on the fast track to a promotion that would earn him a six figure income. How he was living the American dream with a wife, kid, cars and a house when it all came to end. He was fired for having subordinates do something that they shouldn’t have been doing without his knowledge.
He was now no longer living the American dream but a nightmare. He no longer had a source of income and worst of all he had already paid for a family vacation to Disney. Long story short, he went on the trip, faked happy photo’s for social media and wondered what his next move would be. I won’t bore you with the rest of the background story as you have already viewed the video and have arrived here on my blog for my review of ShirtSchool.com. With that being said, I’ll get right down to it.
Shirt School Master Course ($1997 VALUE)
LIFETIME ACCESS: All Updates To Shirt School (?????)
Top Selling T-Shirt Templates ($497 VALUE)
Sales Template Library ($1497 VALUE)
Plug & Play Facebook Ads For T-Shirts ($697 VALUE)
My Personal Swipe File ($497 Value)
BONUS: Subscription Secrets Course ($697 VALUE)
BONUS: Shirt School Deep Dive Collection ($497 VALUE)
BONUS: Shirt School VIP Community (UNLIMITED VALUE)
A Value of $6,397 that can be all your for the low price of $495 or 6 payments of $97 ($582) as Mr. Kerry Egeler wants to “pay it forward”, especially with those who have children as he does.
If it didn’t come through in my writing the above is meant to be sarcastic. I wrote earlier that I withheld my immediate thought but I’ll share it with you now. My immediate thought was, “You must be kidding me!” Actually, it wasn’t what I thought it was what I said to my wife as she sat watching a television program on the couch across from me and my furry daughter.
I’m going to apologize now before I write any further as I always try to write reviews by simply providing my research and allowing the reader to arrive at his or her own conclusion but with regard to ShirtSchool.com I simply don’t have it in me.
I’ll being with the Shirt School Master Course a $1,997 value. Value’s in sales pitches really gets to me. How is Shirt School Master Course valued at $1,997? The answer is simply because that’s what Mr. Egeler wants you to believe. It’s a rudimentary value with no basis other that to build value as in give a person the illusion that he or she is getting a great deal.
LIFETIME ACCESS – a value so great that a monetary value can be reached. However lifetime access will be only be good for as long the company is in business. I found that the domain, ShirtSchool.com was registered in September of 2019 and expires in September of 2020. Does lifetime access in this case mean one year? The fact that the domain has only been registered for one year is a major red flag as far as I’m concerned.
With regard to the Top Selling T-Shirt templates, Sales Template Library and Plug & Play Facebook Ads , valued at $2,691, how effective can any of them be if everyone who purchases the program use the same exact things? I can continue with the rest of the items contained in the sales pitch but I believe that you get the point by now.
Logically speaking, if a person found a way to earn a great living online by doing something that was not only easy but fun why would that person sabotage himself or herself by showing others exactly how he or she did it? Why create competition for yourself and endanger your earning potential? The truth of the matter is that a person wouldn’t. What occurred here with Kerry Egeler is that his shirt based ecommerce business probably began to lose revenue. As such he decided the way to continue to make the money he was accustomed to was to create ShirtSchool.com. I am of course speculating but my statements ring true with most of the online sales gurus. Simply put, I was once successful doing what I was doing but am no longer. However as I was once successful doing what I was doing and can prove it I’ll teach others how I did it for a price although it no longer works as it once did.
Personally I feel that spending $495 on an online t-shirt selling sales course is a waste of money. Even more so when I was on Facebook yesterday and was offered the same course for $395 as I didn’t buy at $495.
“Ladies and gentleman the course has a value of $6,397 but can be yours for only $495. Better yet, if you click through and don’t buy you can then get it for only $395!” Why not offer the course for $395 to begin with? Again, build value.
I’m going to go a step further. I’ll say, on average, I sell 1000 t-shirts through my online store with a profit margin of $16 per t-shirt for total revenue of $16,000 minus my online advertising costs. I don’t know about you but gross revenue of $16,000 is fantastic even if the advertising costs were $9,000 per month for a net profit of $7,000 per month or $84,000 per year. However if I sold 100 people on purchasing my course at $495 and another 25 people at $395 that equates to $59,375 minus the same advertising cost of $9,000 my net profit would be $50,375 per month or $604,500 per year. If I can keep it going steady for as close to two years as possible I may very well make over $1,000,000. I’m not even going to get into the suggested “must have” tools which will also come at a cost thus providing me with more revenue.
Many years ago online marketers were using TeeSpring in combination with Facebook ads to make huge monthly profits. However, as more and more people jumped into the wagon the wheels came off and the revenue marks people were hitting were no longer attainable. In my opinion Shirt School is in the business of taking something that used to work really well that no longer is but is attempting to sell people on the idea. Please, don’t take my word for it. You can easily research selling with TeeSpring and Facebook online and find plenty information on how it was once very profitable but no longer.
I am in now way saying that a person cannot operate an online t-shirt company and make a great living doing so but it’s not as easy as making designs and using Facebook to drive traffic and sales. If it were everyone would be doing it but of course if everyone were doing it that would saturate the market and kill earnings.
I’m sure that people will find this blog review and disagree. I hope that Kerry Egeler himself does. To him I say, prove to me it works. Provide me with six months of free access to the course and I will do exactly as instructed. At the end of the six months I’ll write a follow up review to this review sharing my experience and results. If it works as stated I will 100% admit that I was wrong in my assumption. However, I don’t believe I am.
