You've probably seen a Youtube video from Biaheza and are now wondering whether he's legit and if you should get his course.
Let's find out why I don't think you should get the course.
Vlad Biaheza is an entrepreneur and social media celebrity from the United States. He is well-known for making videos about e-commerce and social networking, such as internet marketing, dropshipping, day trading, and more on YouTube and Tik Tok.
Biaheza was born on February 5, 2001, in Belarus, and his zodiac sign is Aquarius. He now lives in Los Angeles, California.
After one year, he attended California State University before leaving to pursue his drop-shipping and YouTuber career.
Biaheza started his YouTube channel in August 2014. He has since posted videos about dropshipping and internet marketing. The channel now has over 1 million subscribers and over 83 million views.
The content on the channel includes advice on day trading, dropshipping, and making money on Instagram.
Biaheza says that his success comes from his hard work and entrepreneurial spirit.
He was working on videos and Instagram at a young age, and he was also buying and selling things like kendama toys, bicycles, and graphic design work by the time he was 14 years old.
Biaheza makes money on the internet by doing paid marketing and sponsorships. He also has a paid course that teaches people to start a dropshipping business from scratch.
He began creating Instagram pages with themes featuring the work of different photographers, then started making money by selling shout-outs to businesses on one of his pages.
Even though he had to get a job working at a department store, he never stopped working on his Instagram pages which eventually helped him breakthrough.
As he gained more followers on Instagram, Biaheza began to receive more requests for paid shout-outs from businesses. He noticed that most of these businesses were dropshipping products from Aliexpress onto their websites.
Biaheza then tried dropshipping when he was 17; he started using shoutouts to promote these products and had some relative success doing it.
Eventually, though, he failed because he didn't know how much it would cost to run the business. He lost money from the product costs, Shopify fees, and advertising costs (ironic because he doesn't teach you this in his course, more about this later).
Biaheza did not accept his defeat. Instead, he returned to the drawing board and increased his efforts on what he knew best, developing Instagram theme pages.
He decided to focus on creating a few significant topic accounts and added a twist because he'd been bitten by the dropshipping bug before.
This time, rather than simply offering shoutouts to other dropshippers, he would use his own theme pages to promote his dropshipping store since he realized that doing so would save him a lot of money on advertising fees while also allowing him to make money.
Biaheza began working on growing his Instagram accounts in early March. His goal was to earn $500-$2000 per month in advertising revenue from shout-outs for the next few months.
He thought he was ready to start another dropshipping business with a modest goal of making a $1,000 profit after the first month.
Biaheza's hard work paid off because, in September of 2018, he launched his second e-commerce dropshipping store. This time, he had more experience and could use his large Instagram audience to help promote the store.
On the first day the store opened, it generated $531.48 in sales from a single shout-out advertisement on Instagram.
Ever since Biaheza has been making videos that show his successes and how he achieves successes with stuff like dropshipping and trading on YouTube, Tik Tok, and Instagram, and is popular among young hustlers.
Lately, Biaheza has shifted from dropshipping and trading to crypto and NFTs.
Biaheza offers a paid course called “Biaheza's Full Dropshipping Course,” – which teaches you how to start dropshipping.
The course takes you through the process step-by-step, and it's aimed at people who have very little to no knowledge of eCommerce, let alone dropshipping.
There's no enrollment or any gimmicks. It's a simple course that you pay for and consume.
In the course, Biaheza establishes a new dropshipping business and explains everything step by step, including how he built his e-commerce business in 2019 using precise social media marketing methods.
This course is a great first step if you are just starting your entrepreneurial journey. It will help you to get started right away, and it also teaches you how to find and choose products for your store. However, in my opinion, these methods are severely outdated and not worth your time in 2022.
The course has 13 short lessons, and it takes about 15 minutes to view each lesson. Keep in mind that the course costs $294. In other words, you're paying a teacher $196 per hour for the information he knows.
According to Biaheza, this is his best content yet. He discloses some of his own best-selling products. Here he shows you how to build an online store from scratch using his own process. Plus, he shares his marketing strategies for Facebook and Instagram theme pages that will lead you to success.
The Biaheza Dropshipping Course costs $294. However, it is important to remember that there are other costs associated with setting up a successful dropshipping business, including:
Even though it is not particularly pricey, there is no value for money here. There are superior free lessons on YouTube than Biaheza's course provides.
This dropshipping course is intended to teach beginners and people with no experience in dropshipping.
People looking for free dropshipping information on the internet or who feel overwhelmed by the available information may find this course tempting.
However, the length of the course makes it difficult to learn the dropshipping business model.
There seem to be no discounts available for Biaheza's Dropshipping Course and no refunds once the course is purchased.
There are 11 videos in this course. The longest video is about 18 minutes long, and the shortest is about one minute long. This course is short, so you can finish it quickly.
This course contains 13 different video lessons. Here is a breakdown of each lesson.
Biaheza searches for goods with basic dropshipping software. This is not a good approach to locating things since thousands of other dropshippers will utilize the same tools and offer comparable goods.
To be sustainable in the long run, you must conduct your own product research rather than depending on a tool that anybody can use.
He uses software to find products, but I don't think this is the best way to find good products. I have had more luck doing my own product research without tools.
It takes longer, but you can find some great products this way.
He wants you to use these apps/tools so he can earn an affiliate commission.
Most people who make a lot of money from dropshipping don't share their products with other people. Biaheza made his money from selling older products, but you won't be able to make as much money as him.
The majority of the other students who have completed this course will also be selling the same products in his “5 winning products”, making it extremely difficult to excel in those.
Not just that, but as of 2022, with even more people selling online and disruptions in supply chains, you can neither source these items nor do people need them.
This module doesn't teach you anything special. You can follow the free training on Youtube or on Shopify itself.
He's a believer in single-product shops, so you'll be putting all your hope in one product since he believes it will work.
I'm not a fan of this approach, and it makes more sense to test many items than to have faith in simply one.
There are more informative and updated videos on YouTube than the ones provided by Biaheza.
Biaheza does not provide any unique information about creating product pages. It is outdated, and buyers on social media are savvier nowadays, so they recognize whether the information is legit or not.
People often overlook these pages; however, these are such basic concepts that shouldn't really take as much time as they do.
The shipping pages also basically lie to customers by giving them long shipping times and other things buyers are now aware of and actively avoid.
This is perhaps Biaheza's specialty and an actual useful part of the course.
He uses Instagram effectively to bring visitors to your store and gives you valuable insights into the world of shoutouts and how shoutout pages operate. Other dropshipping courses rarely talk about this source of traffic.
Biaheza walks you through the process of setting up an effective Instagram company page. He tells you to include at least nine pictures and to try and gain followers.
He does, however, advise you against purchasing followers, which is a shady practice and doesn't increase your sales.
You can get many of these images from either Royalty-free images or AliExress suppliers. He says it is important to have a professional and “nice” looking store, but I find that the examples he shows are rather ugly.
Biaheza’s background in Facebook and Instagram makes for sound advice here, as this has been his specialty for as long as the topic was relevant.
Biaheza ran multiple social media pages and is actually knowledgeable on the topic, so he excels in that part of the course.
This is more worthless fluff; there are countless videos about this and Facebook's own guide to the Pixel. Biaheza makes a point to miss out on all the important settings and adjustments needed to make the best of Pixel.
He completely misses Google Analytics too, which is the cherry on top for me.
This ties back to his knowledge about influencer marketing. However, these tactics don't really work as well anymore and just add fluff to the whole course.
There is something to be said about pages done right. However, that would be a course of its own and not just a quick chapter at the end of the course.
In this lesson, Biaheza covers more ground on Instagram. You'll discover how to use Instagram Influencers, choose the correct pages, and have your advertisements go viral (in theory, at least.) These are not necessarily wrong tactics; however, they are out-of-date methods.
This Facebook Ad video is a very basic and out-of-date introduction to Facebook Ads, devoid of anything revolutionary.
This has been discussed in numerous other YouTube videos and Facebook Ads training manuals on the Facebook website.
There are a lot of different advertising platforms out there, like Google, Bing, Snapchat, Pinterest, and more. But you also need to use other advertising platforms to reach more people.
The course also doesn't teach you how you can scale your ads.
Dropshipping courses often overlook this aspect, despite its importance, so this is one of the only other pieces of value that Biaheza provides in his course.
The setup process is straightforward. Nonetheless, nothing new here justifies a price tag.
This is another thing that Biaheza has done better than most, the production quality is extremely high compared to others. His videos are shot in high-definition camera and audio, and his delivery is good, as he's easy to understand.
This dropshipping tutorial aims to help people who have never done it before or who are unfamiliar with the concept. This course could be ideal for you if you don't know where to look for free information on dropshipping or are intimidated by the amount of data online.
The course may not be expensive, but it is not worth the money. The content is very basic, and you can find better lessons for free on YouTube.
This course isn't for people unwilling to put in days of research and theory-crafting initially while also taking risks and executing and failing several times.
Straight up no. The course is outdated and doesn't even give good advice that can't be found for free on YouTube.
The course is more tailored towards his existing audience from YouTube, and honestly, in my opinion, probably the only thing he sold on Shopify was this worthless course.
Considering his age and success on YouTube, he would have probably done better doing a course about becoming successful on YouTube, for example.
I personally don't think he's had any real success in dropshipping, and the majority of his wealth was accumulated from YouTube and selling courses to his gullible fans.
To me, it's definitely not worth the cost.
