Today we’d like to introduce you to Alex Hampton.
Alex, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
In 2018, I graduated with a degree from the University of Missouri in Marketing and Computer Science Engineering. After moving from Missouri to Dallas in July, I was working a 9-5 Job that was paying me barely enough to survive and had me working 12+ hours a day.
I worked there until November 24th of the same year until I realized that this is just not anywhere near what I wanted to do in life. I knew I was always good at selling anything that was presented in front of me but didn’t have the resources to do so.
My roommate in college started his own e-commerce dropshipping store and I was intrigued from the start. How you get your products, how you reach your customers, creating your videos and picture ads, establishing high conversion advertisements, etc.. I then decided on November 24th, the day I quit my job, that I wasn’t going into the New Year without investing in myself. I always tell all my friends and family that if you invest in yourself, you can not fail.
Ended up starting my first store a week later and failed right away. But maintained a lot of insight on why I failed and took a lot of knowledge and expertise from other gurus in my industry on what they are doing right, and how I could implement this to myself. Ended up using the next two weeks to spend more time on the back end to launch my next store.
December 24th, I had my first winning product that grossed $220,000 from December 24th, 2018- March 1st, 2019. I learned so much from grossing this amount of revenue that I knew I could do it again and do it even better than I did the first time!
March 15th, I opened up an additional store. From March 15th-December 1st of this year, I grossed $1.7 million in sales in less than nine months!
After this, I was featured on shaderoom for growing a store to close to $2 million in less than 3/4 of a year. I was also featured on an e-commerce podcast named “Tech Money Talks” that went viral! This helped me be able to get my story out and relate to others who were in my exact position.
I then created a detailed beginner friendly/advanced course to show my strategies, tips, and more with hours of live screen share to my students who invested in it! I now have over 350 students! I have students who have hit $1000, $7000, even $10,000 dollar DAYS. And they are only continuously growing their stores with the information and knowledge I provide them in my course: SUPREME ECOM BLUEPRINT. I have grossed $35,000 from June – December in just course sales with a profit margin of 95%!
I also have one on one mentorships available for students or others who are interested in getting started or just need help scaling their stores they are currently already running. This goes hand and hand with my consulting/client calls. If an individual doesn’t want to invest in the course or mentorship they are able to schedule calls with me to answer any and every question they have.
Lastly, I created a YouTube channel recently to provide FREE tips on how to get started and create your first profitable E-commerce business!
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Anytime you start a business, you have to be able to deal with obstacles/challenges and use the experience as not a loss but a time of gaining knowledge and experience from the struggles that you went through.
I had $40,000 held from me for over 90 days from PayPal.
Multiple bank accounts affected.
First business shut down because of Facebook advertising policies that I wasn’t aware of.
Blocks on my ads running.
Starting with $1000 in my account. I had to choose between paying rent or investing the money I had left to learn more about this industry. Not eating for days, lights being turned off, etc…
Even had an entire crane fall through my apartment where I was left with nothing besides the shirt on my back for three months.
Supreme Ecom Blueprint – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
My business is SUPREME ECOM BLUEPRINT but I also run my online dropshipping business.
I specialize in starting and scaling e-commerce businesses profitably and creating and establishing a long term brand.
In this course, I provide live screen share to show exactly how I run my online business, 950 winning proven products, high converting pre-built theme worth $1400, million-dollar ad strategy, and more…
I’m most proud of doing $1.7 million dollars in sales in less than nine months.
What sets me apart? Being relatable and not thinking of the money but providing value. I’d rather see myself changing people’s lives, being happy, traveling, and doing the things they always wished they could do by investing in my course and seeing how fast-growing this industry is. I could care less about the money like I stated. Simply changing people’s lives is a feeling that is unmatched.
My course is updated with all of my strategies and new tips each and every month. Most gurus provide a course that is outdated, old news and doesn’t really relate to the market that is going on at the current moment. I stand out by providing all up to date strategies, and putting more effort in the back end to see all of my students succeed!
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I define success as meeting a combination of business and personal goals and helping my students do the same. I believe that effective goals motivate us to push ourselves and grow, and as a result of meeting such goals, we not only help our businesses by meeting its objectives, but we also become more effective individuals that can contribute to even greater growth in the future for ourselves and our future endeavors. As a leader, I also want my team to feel capable of achieving their goals as well as their objectives, so I make it a priority to personally help them meet individualized milestones.
