It’s hard to connect with experienced, like-minded store owners and eCommerce professionals online. Perhaps you’ve tried public eCommerce forums, but have been disappointed with low-quality discussion and a lack of individuals with real-world experience.
That’s why I created the eCommerceFuel forums, a private community where in-the-trenches store owners and eCommerce professionals can connect, share knowledge and help each other grow their businesses.
Requirements for Joining
The forum is reserved exclusively for serious store owners and eCommerce professionals to ensure a high level of discussion and expertise. We screen all new members to make sure they bring applicable, real-world eCommerce experience to the community.
Store owners must be generating at least $5,000/month in revenue. It’s not an enormous requirement, but is enough to ensure that participants are making a serious effort at running their own stores and have some real-world experience to share.
The forum is also open to eCommerce professionals with at least a year of experience in their field. Our members include professionals with importing/manufacturing experience, eCommerce consultants, conversion rate optimization gurus, shopping cart developers, SAAS professionals, eCommerce email marketing specialists and many others.
If you have real-world experience helping eCommerce stores succeed – or you specialize in an area crucial to eCommerce success – you’ll fit right in.
“I’ve been searching for something like this for years, and there’s absolutely nothing that compares as far as quality of membership. It’s a community of doers, not wantrepreneurs. Everyone is vetted, which makes for high-level and super impactful conversations.” — Bill DAlessandro | ElementsBrands.com
“I’ve been absolutely blown away by the quality of members in the forum. From 7-figure store owners to high-level consultants, the breadth and depth of the discussion has been more educational than I could have imagined on first joining.” — Taylor Pearson | ThePortableBarCompany.com
The Community Is NOT For …
People Just Getting Started
This is a high-level forum, so it isn’t the place for people just starting out with eCommerce. If you’re looking for resources on how to start and grow your own store, I recommend reading my free eBook and the content on the blog, or considering my full training program.
If you’re hoping to join a Q&A site where you can constantly ask question after question without contributing, you need not apply. We’re looking for members who are willing to share their experiences, engage in high-level discussions and contribute to the community.
Getting input and help from other members is, of course, one reason the community is so valuable – so asking questions is encouraged. But we’re looking for members who will meaningfully add to the community as well as receive.
Why Should You Join?
High-Level, Transparent Discussions
Because we’re strict about who we let in, the quality of conversation in the forums is extremely high and informed. And because the forum is private and protected from the outside world (and invisible to Google), people are very open about their businesses and metrics.
Where else would you find a thread with people discussing their actual conversion rates? Or sharing a supplier with someone who’s thinking about getting into a slightly different market? Discussions like this are common in the forum.
Networking & Camaraderie
Get expert advice on just about any eCommerce topic you can imagine – offered up from industry-leading subject experts to 8-figure store owners. Plus, you’ll get to connect and build relationships with fun and incredible people who share the same goals you do.
Engage with the eCommerceFuel Team
The forum is where I (Andrew) spend most of my time engaging, sharing and helping other eCommerce entrepreneurs – and it’s where my company’s team members hang out as well. If you’re interested in connecting on a one-on-one basis, this is the best place to find me.
Find Quality Contractors … or New Clients
Who would you rather hire for your next project: some random contractor off oDesk OR a forum member who has blown you away with his knowledgable and expert contributions to the community? It’s a great way for store owners to improve the quality of their outsourced work. And if you’re a service provider, you can showcase your expertise and get on the radar of potential clients by contributing to discussions.
20+ Hours of Premium Training Content
While the forum is the primary focus of the community, all active forum members also receive full access to The Insider’s Guide, my premium video-training series which sells as a standalone product for $599. It contains more than 70 video lessons and covers everything from niche evaluation to marketing and site optimization.
How Much Does It Cost?
Forum membership is $29/month. That’s less than $1 per day. You can cancel anytime, and there are no sign-up fees. If you’re not initially thrilled with the quality of discussion and members inside, let me know within 30 days and I’ll issue you a full refund.
Why so affordable for such a vetted group? Because I want this to be a community you’ll be involved with for years. At $29 a month, it’s a no-brainer for anyone serious about eCommerce. I want you to be a member for life and know you’ll get significantly more than $29 per month in value. Note: After the initial month, membership is billed quarterly at $87 / quarter. You can cancel anytime and receive a full refund for any unused months.
