Ecommerce vs The Digital Rental Method: Which One Is The Best In 2024?


Chocolate or vanilla? Democrat or republican? Ecommerce or Digital Rental Method?

These are some of the tough questions that spark some of life’s fiercest debates…

But I’m not one to shy away from a challenge, so I’ll attempt to settle this once and for all.

Firstly… hello! My name is Elijah, and I’ve personally tried nearly all the major business models out there.

  • I’ve sold Dog themed coffee mugs to people on Facebook (“I like my coffee black and my dogs golden”)…
  • I’ve downloaded those stupid barcode scanning apps and arbitraged products on Amazon…
  • I’ve bought damaged-box 4K TVs and flipped them on Ebay…
  • I’ve tried joining Affiliate Networks and selling other people’s products…
  • Sh*t… I’ve even sold women’s health products on Clickbank!


And here’s the thing: I’ve made money on each of them!

From 6-figure ecommerce companies to fashion-media subscription companies… I’ve had my hands in a lot of stuff.

But make no mistake… they all took a lot of work to make happen!

I will fully disclose here: I still make money to this day with Ecom, with the Digital Rental Method… I even own part of a local Fence Installation company and a Garage Door Repair company…

That said, the purpose of this article is to zoom in specifically on Ecommerce, and how it compares to the tried-and-true Digital Rental Method.

I’ll talk about the pros and cons of each business model, the profits you can expect from each, and how quickly it can happen for you.

By the end, you’ll have a clear answer as to what business model to choose so you can hit the ground running if you’re SERIOUS about becoming an entrepreneur…

Trust me… I remember the days of the lambo driving gurus with a seemingly awesome Youtube playlist walking you through how to become a millionaire with Shopify…

So I’d like to dispel some myths and rumors, and get to the heart of what it takes to succeed.

Okay, let’s dive in!

Brief Overview

Ecommerce and The Digital Rental Method are two of the most popular ways to make money online.

Depending on your Instagram or TikTok algorithm, you’ve probably heard a lot more about one or the other.

With ecommerce you focus on building a storefront and selling products. The model is all about finding products, sourcing suppliers, and putting your products in front of more people. Sometimes you’re building a product from scratch, sometimes you’re just trying to flip stuff… kinda varies depending on your flavor of Ecommerce guru.

On the flipside, the Digital Rental Method focuses on the lead generation business model, except it infuses AI and state-of-the-art softwares to make it happen.. The idea is that you build up simple landing pages that send interested buyers to local businesses. It’s called the Digital “Rental” method because you’re “renting” high-traffic websites to local business owners (more on this in a second… stay with me).

That said, let’s take a quick look at how these two compare, side by side.

Ecommerce vs Digital Rental Method: Side By Side Comparison

 EcommerceDigital Rental Method
ProfitabilityWith inventory costs, advertising spend, seller and processing fees involved, expect a 10% to 20% profit margin (not a bad thing necessarily, just is what it is)You can comfortably sit on 70% to 80% profit margins because you don’t hold inventory.
ScalabilityHard to scale without outside funding due to how capital intensive it is to invest in more inventory and advertising spend. Relies heavily on upsells to increase AOV.Scaling doesn’t require more capital… you just clone your assets into another city and repeat the process.
Beginner-FriendlinessGetting to your first sale is relatively easy.First sale usually happens within 30 days for beginners.
Number of Skills NeededPaid ads, product research, copywriting, product sourcing, email marketingPaid traffic.
ControlLow degree of control, e.g Facebook’s history of banning dropshippers.You own and control your assets, success determined by effort.

Like with anything in life, the devil’s in the details. I’ll share with you my opinion on which is better and peel back the layers on how each business model works.

Far too often, gurus sell you on the dream and come to find out the business is MUCH harder than advertised…

My goal is to break down both money-making strategies, so you can decide for yourself.

Quick Verdict (TLDR): Which Is Better

Are you stuck between a rock and a hard place?

We’ve all been there. Myself included.

But, unfortunately, most beginners don’t ever quit the rat race because they spend too much time thinking, and not enough on making decisions.

They can’t make up their mind!

They watch hours of videos of their favorite YouTuber creator, gurus like Gary Vee, Grant Cardone, Alex Hormozi, Iman Gadzhi, and so forth… maybe the occasional “top most expensive hotel rooms in the world”, or “inside my $20,000 airplane ticket to XYZ place”… longing after a life that seems out of reach.

Rather than doing the important stuff, they procrastinate and continue to “research” without ever taking decisive action.

SO… if you’re that someone still looking for the next flavor of the month, then it’s time for a reality check.

Right now, you’re at a fork in the road… and it’s up to you to … unfork yourself

Path A

Start an ecommerce business.

Here, you’re gonna need to be a jack of all trades. That means you’ll need to have strong digital marketing skills to succeed.


Because there’s MILLIONS of sellers competing against you trying to take your lunch money.

You need to build upsell funnels, email marketing campaigns, retargeting ads, compelling ad creatives…

Most sellers have access to the same products you do.. So the only way to stand out is to have BETTER marketing campaigns, like eye-catching videos and high-converting ad copy.

Path B

Start a Digital Rental Method business.

When you build a digital rental empire, you only really need to learn one major skill…

Run simple paid traffic ads on Google and Facebook..

For example, all you need to do is create simple text ads and run them to high search traffic queries in local markets.
(think: plumbers in east bumblef*ck U.S.A.)

Mind you, competition is WAY less because you’re targeting local keyword phrases, not big generic audiences like you would with e-commerce.

For instance, you see this search term?

Colorado Springs has a population of 500,000 and growing.. Dozens of concrete companies would LOVE to rank for these keywords…

Because if they do, their phones would be ringing off the hook!

Not convinced? Let me break down the maths…

I own and control the website in that top spot… it converts around 30% to a phone call from a click.

Meaning if I pay $10/click… I’m paying around $35 for a phone call…

The guy that rents it from me is pretty good on the phones, he closes ¼ calls I send his way…

So about $130 to close a new client…

$130 to close a new client that will pay him over $1,000 in profits!

How happy would you be if every time you gave me $100, I gave you $1,000 back!

And you can do this for any niche and any location in the world.

Believe me, making this ad profitable is A LOT easier than making this one profitable..

With low-ticket or saturated offers, you have very little wiggle room to succeed. Think about it.

Let’s say you sell dog collars for $25, but it costs you $7 to source.

That means you can only spend $18 to break even… Even if you have achieved a $10 cost per sale, you’re only profiting $8 per sale…

It’ll take about 1,000 sales every month to even sniff $10k per month.

In life, you can do things the easy or the hard way.

The hard way is throwing money at the wall testing random products trying to see what sticks… In the process, wasting thousands of dollars before something actually makes you money.

It’s trying to get thousands of new customers every month and working with itty-bitty margins.


The easy way is to get a local business owner to pay you on autopilot..

After you’ve earned their trust, they become practically lifelong customers, paying you thousands of dollars month after month, like clockwork..

You don’t need to find new customers.

There’s no stress to “make ads profitable” because customers are paying for the service you provide…

And once you’re happy with the income you’re raking in from your digital rental empire, you can either continue to grow the business or sit back and enjoy life..

..maybe travel, take on new hobbies, go on vacations or even spend more time with loved ones..

The choice is yours.

If you want the easiest way to fire your boss and grow your bank balance, then the answer is clear. The Digital Rental Method is far better for getting to a 6-figure income, while working less than 10 to 15 hours a week…

Ecommerce Vs Digital Rental Method: What’s Different?

Comparing these two business models is like Apples and Orange – they’re not the same.

Both are in many ways polar opposites, with little in common..

Let’s take a look at the basic features of each money-making strategy so you know how they differ on all fronts.

Key Differentiating FactsEcommerceDigital Rental Method
Value PropositionYou’re selling physical products, usually low-ticket items.You sell a service that directly puts more money into a local business owner’s pockets.
Distribution channelsYou can sell products on your own branded Shopify store or on a third-party platform like Amazon, Etsy or eBay.You have the freedom to choose how to land clients. Simple direct Facebook messages or emails work. Businesses can be found everywhere, from Yelp to a simple online search.
Ongoing costsDepends. Dropshipping has low start up costs with just marketing expenses of $500 to $1000. Amazon FBA may require $5k+ with inventory costs.Digital Rental Method can be done on a relatively low recurring budget, because the client pays ad spend.. All you need to do is pay for the software to build simple one-page landers.
Operating expensesInventory, and ad costs are quite high.You only pay for software to keep your digital rental properties up and low-budget ads to keep leads flowing in.
Regulatory compliance

Amazon and payment processors are strict about the types of products you can sell.

Facebook and Google ads have strict policies. They’re weary of dropshippers because they falsify their ads to make products look higher quality than they actually are. This causes ad platforms to shutdown ad accounts from dropshippers.

Some jurisdictions have resale sales tax.


What this all means for you: I recommend the Digital Rental Method over ecommerce because it’s a better value proposition and has all the makings to help you achieve financial freedom faster and more predictably.

Rather than selling cheap trinkets and doodads from China, you’re helping REAL people who have to feed their families and pay their employees.

When business owners see their phone ringing off the hook, they’ll happily pay you month after month.

It’s an EASY sell when you’re helping businesses make more money..

“Oh, you might have to shut down because you can’t pay your bills because you can’t get jobs? Hold my beer, friend!”

Compare that to ecommerce where you’re really selling gimmicky products that don’t work all that well…

Let’s be honest for a moment… most ecom gurus are out there teaching you how to sell a shitty product to some unsuspecting person and while you try your darndest to make it seem like it isn’t a piece of trash.

Look at products from sites like Aliexpress, Temu, Alibaba, and I’m throwing no shade on those websites (just the people that use them I guess…), but there’s a reason those products are sold for only a FRACTION of the price.

  1. Because they take advantage of cheap human labor
  2. Because the quality of the product is piss-poor

And let’s be honest, you’re here for one reason – to make money.

Chances are, you’re looking to quit your soul-sucking 9 to 5. Maybe you can’t stand another minute of it. Maybe you just wanna make an extra side income to buy a new car or give yourself that extra breathing room so you don’t feel like you’re living paycheck to paycheck…

Well, the Digital Rental Method gets you there much faster.

Everything is laid out on a silver platter for you.

If you follow the Digital Rental Method as it’s laid out, everything is copy-paste. Just a few clicks, and you can set everything up.

It comes with website landers for every possible niche.. all the templated ad copies. All the messaging and sales scripts..

… it’s kinda like stealing candy from a baby. Except it’s done ethically!

You don’t have to be a master at Facebook or Google ads, either. Nor do you have to be a copy-wiz like myself. It’s just copy-paste, almost as easy as hitting Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V on your keyboard…

If you want a more in-depth explanation of the Digital Rental Method, this free training explains the process step by step with live case studies and examples of how it’s done..(thank me later)

What Is Ecommerce? | Everything You Need To Know

Ecommerce is a business model where you sell products online. The transaction takes place through an online store or a third-party marketplace like Amazon or eBay.

Ever since the inception of the World Wide Web in the early 90’s, ecommerce has been a thing. Anyone from their mother’s basement could start making money online.

All it took was a few clicks.. Build a website and list a few products on it…Then, getting it in front of as many people as possible.

But there’s many ways to skin a cat..

You’ve got dropshipping, Amazon FBA, print-on-demand, wholesaling, and private labeling.. The list goes on and on.

You’ve also got a suspicious number of 18-year-olds with rented Lamborghinis, who’ve rented it for the ad they recorded..

Ecommerce has probably minted more temporary 6-and 7-figure entrepreneurs than any other business model. (I say temporary because I see too many flash-in-the-pan successes. Gurus who’ve made it big once but couldn’t duplicate their success consistently… As their store crumbles, they move away from e-commerce and onto selling courses..)

Types of Ecommerce Business Models

The main difference between these ecommerce business models is where you sell your products and whether you hold inventory or not.

Picking the right method is everything.

… Some ecommerce business models offer higher profit margins than others.

… Some are easier to get started.

… Some are more competitive than others..

That’s why it’s important to pick the best ecommerce business model or at the very least understand what each one is about. That way, you don’t go throwing $997 to some 19-year old lambo whiz kid without even knowing what you’re getting yourself into.

But with that said, I’ll do my best to give you a basic understanding of how it all works.


Dropshipping is a way to fulfill e-commerce orders where you don’t hold any inventory.

When a customer buys a product listed in your store, you (as the seller) send that order to the supplier, who ships it directly to the buyer’s address.

Basically, you’re the middleman between the customer and the supplier with the product.

Dropshipping has always been around.. Companies like Sears, Wayfair, Zappos, all do it. They sell brand-name items in their store. These companies list catalogs on their site or send out mail catalog orders, and then dropship those products from manufacturers to customers’ homes.

The blessing and the curse of dropshipping is that anyone can do it.

.. So there’s low startup cost
.. Easy to start
.. Easy access to Chinese products

Getting dropshipping to work over the long haul is VERY hard.


You’re taught to sell little trinkets from China. This causes a ton of issues like poor product quality, super slow shipping times, and lots of competition..

With Uber Eats, Instacart, and Amazon Prime, I don’t know many people willing to wait 3-5 weeks for their order… Only to find out the product is flimsy and not what they expected..

Shit, I have a hard time stomaching a 4 day shipping time from a company I actually love!

High-Ticket Dropshipping

A recent phenomenon that’s been making waves within the circles of YouTube is high-ticket dropshipping.

Don’t sell cheap Chinese products, they say, why not sell BIG ticket items like furniture, office chairs, kayaks, hot tubs, saunas, and outdoor smokers…

Sounds nice, right?

The problem is these things are CRAZY hard to sell.

I mean come on… name 1 person that’s gonna buy a $6,000 sauna because they saw your “really convincing” stock photo ad on Facebook…

With low-ticket dropshipping, you take advantage of people’s impulse buying decisions. You create these flashy ads designed to strike people’s heartstrings like a dog poop cleaner that costs only 15 bucks…

But with high-ticket dropshipping, you have to run multiple re-targeting ads to drum up any sliver of interest from cold traffic..

People aren’t just willing to hand over thousands of dollars to a no-name online store they’ve never heard of… You have to build a TON of trust.

There’s a reason why companies like Crate & Barrel, IKEA, and Herman Miller have showrooms for their products… TO BUILD TRUST.

Beyond that, there’s a lot of backend setup involved. You gotta pitch and convince big corporations to allow you to even sell their stuff.

And if customers refund?

You gotta eat the HUGE shipping cost to return it back to the supplier.

The point is that high-ticket dropshipping is 10 times harder than low-ticket dropshipping.. If you barely know how to work a computer, much less run retargeting and lookalike Facebook campaigns, then it’s probably something to stay clear of…

Print on Demand

Print on demand adds another twist to the dropshipping model.

You don’t need to hold heaps of inventory in your own warehouse (or garage), and customers won’t have to wait months to get the products they’ve order..

Basically, you sell custom products – everything from printed t-shirts and socks to mugs and phone cases.

All you do is hire a graphic designer from Fiverr to make cool graphics for you. Then you send the design over to suppliers like Printify or Printful. Then they handle the rest, like printing, packing and shipping.

You can market the products however you wish.

Sites like RedBubble and Etsy are good because you can tap into an existing audience. But then again you get pigeonholed into looking like your competitors. There’s nothing really differentiating you from the pack.

If you sell on Shopify, you gotta run all the ads and make sure you can turn a profit. Between designs, printing, and product costs, you’re skating on razor-thin margins there.

Sure it’s a decent side hustle to experiment with.. But it probably won’t make you life-changing money.

Even if it works, you’re one competitor away from stealing your exact prints and products…

Overnight, your sales could drop faster than Dogecoin did in 2021 after Elon Musk went on SNL…

Amazon FBA

Amazon Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) is a service where Amazon handles all the inventory storage, packaging, and shipping for you.

It takes the burden off of you as the seller.

And on top of that, you can tap into Amazon’s massive customer base of 310 million active users. (of course, you’re also competing with 9.5 million sellers..)

All you have to do is..

  1. Use tools like Junglescout to find hot-selling products
  2. Find a supplier from Alibaba or another Chinese marketplace
  3. Buy the minimum order quantity to buy items in bulk.
  4. Ship it to Amazon’s warehouse.
  5. Once orders arrive, they handle the rest

The beauty of Amazon is that they also can offer Prime shipping, so that customers receive their order within a day or two…

The downside?

Amazon is crazy competitive. You have to fight tooth and nail to get to the top of each ranking.

Worse of all, Amazon undercuts its own sellers by selling brand-name products.

And… within a blink of an eye, Amazon can shut down your account.

  • If you sell low-quality products
  • Have lots of negative reviews
  • Or just got on Jeff Bezos’s bad side,

Your business can vanish overnight. I don’t about you, but I would never pour my heart and soul into a business model that can be taken away from me without my control..

Who Is Ecommerce For, And Who Is It Not For?

Ecommerce isn’t for everyone.

Even if there’s many ways to do it, they all kinda follow the same protocol – find products and suppliers and market your online store..

Sure every business model could theoretically work.. But you wanna give yourself the best odds to reach 6-figures.

There’s two things you need to hit that coveted $10k per month mark –

  1. The right vehicle (AKA business model)
  2. The right mindset & skills

A good course and mentorship program can take care of #2… But #1 is tricky.

Let me put it to you this way.. You can’t take a 1990 Honda Civic down to the race track and expect it to fly 200 miles per hour..

It doesn’t have the juice to do it.

If you enter into a hyper-competitive market, you’re already climbing an uphill battle… So it’s important to keep that in mind with any business model you pick.

With all that said, here’s who ecommerce is and isn’t for…

Ecommerce is great for you if:

  • You’re already good with advertising.
  • You have lots of money to test products fast.
  • You’ve got a wink-wink handshake deal with a supplier that other ecommerce sellers can’t get access to.

Ecommerce is a terrible idea for you if..

  • You’re looking to make predictable income. With ecommerce, you’re highly dependent on finding NEW customers.. Imagine not being able to pencil in your income from a month to month basis…And whether you’ll be able to put food on the table for your family..
  • You want full control of your business. With ecommerce, there’s a ton of factors outside of your control like shipping times, product quality and even your competitors. Even if you do everything right, your business could still fall apart..
  • You want an easy way to make money. Ecommerce is notorious for 10% to 20% profit margins. Getting 20% margins on a $25 product means you’ll need thousands of orders every month to even crack a 6-figure income.

What Is The Digital Rental Method? | Everything You Need To Know

The Digital Rental Method is a cutting edge digital marketing program that has helped thousands of ordinary people quit their 9 to 5 jobs and make an extra $3k to $10k+ per month in semi-passive income…

It falls under the lead generation business model..

Except it puts the whole thing on steroids.

The idea is that you help local businesses get more customers.

Like with anything, there’s a million ways to do this..

You could

… Build up your Yelp reviews and set up their Google My Business accounts to show up in search.

… Write blog posts using highly intentional keywords to rank for popular search terms.

.. Partner with local brands for sponsorships or cross-promotion

.. Post on social media and build their following

While these are all viable options, the Digital Rental Method focuses on running paid ads..

That’s because it’s the easiest, fastest, and most predictable way to get results.

Let’s say you live down near Denver Colorado, where there’s a huge market for roof repairs. There are a ton of snowstorms and hailstorms that wreak havoc on homes..

With a little bit of digging you find businesses like “Rogers Roofing Company” that offers roof repair services. They are great at what they do, yet they don’t even have a website or know the first thing about marketing themselves online.

This is where you step in.

You create basic one-page landers that highlight Roger’s services then spruce it up with your own style. You put the company’s contact info on there.

Then, you boost up the landing page with paid ads…

Within the coming days and weeks, Roger starts getting phone calls and text messages requesting his services…

He’s got a line of people just waiting to buy from him.

When you follow up with him, you’ll ask him how those leads are going..And chances are he’ll be ecstatic with your results. And since he doesn’t no the first clue about how online marketing works, he’ll beg for you to keep doing whatever it is you’re doing…

Then, that’s where you get paid.

You charge a flat-rate fee of $500 to $2,000 per month (sometimes even more if you stack on additional services or depending on the niche, since some leads are worth more based on the industry)

You’re not competing with millions of other sellers. You can dominate your local market and be a big fish in a small pond, swooping up all the businesses in your area..

Or you can venture off into other territories.

With over 400 million small businesses in the world, there’s plenty of opportunity for you to succeed.

All you need is just a couple of clients paying you a few thousand a month and guess what?

You’ve freed yourself from the shackles of the 9 to 5 job. You say adios to your office cubicle and fire your boss on the spot.

Anytime you need more money, you can simply go out and find more clients.. No need to beg and work overtime just to pray that you get a 5% raise in salary.

Who Is It For, And Who Is It Not For?

At this point, you might be thinking, this sounds all well and good, but is the Digital Rental Method a good fit for me?

Well glad you asked…

I think the Digital Rental Method program is a great fit for you if…

  • You’re looking for a business that provides a legitimate, real world path to reaching $10,000 or higher per month.
  • You’re looking to free up time and resources, so that you can focus on enjoying life now, not in some unnameable future.
  • You’ve tried other business models like affiliate marketing, MLM, real estate investing, or even crypto. But you’ve been trying to find something that sticks. 

On the other hand, it might not make sense if..

  • You’re looking for a get-rich quick scheme or need money in 2 days (success takes work!)
  • You’re deadset on trying ecommerce for one reason or another. 
  • You like to chase shiny objects. Rather than making a commitment to one business model, you hop from one opportunity to the next.

Head-to-Head Comparison - Ecommmerce Vs. Digital Rental Method?

Everytime I analyze business opportunities, I run it through a specific checklist.

For example, if you were to buy a car, you’d look at features like horsepower, interior design, safety features, gas mileage, etc..

In the same way, I’m gonna give you a cheatsheet of things you need to look out for when making your final decision.


1 in every 5 businesses fail within just one year of operation. And 50% of small businesses fail before their 5th year..

One of the main culprits for that is profitability.

When you choose a business model with low profit margins, you’ve got very little room for error.

Everything has to go right..

It’s like trying to hit a perfect batting average or shooting 100% from the free-throw line. It’s asking a lot for anyone to do, much less a beginner.

I personally prefer business models with above 50% profit margins, so that you have a high chance of at least turning a profit and not losing money…

Even banks are looking for high-profit margins when they lend out money to businesses. And so are investors…

They know that all SUCCESSFUL businesses should have healthy margins, which is a good indicator for long-term viability.

With ecommerce, you can expect 10-20% margins.


There are many expenses that eat into your profits such as:

  • Product costs: Whether you hold inventory or not, product costs account for usually about one-third of total revenue.
  • Marketing costs: Ad spend varies but you can expect that it’ll take up another third of your total revenue.
    Software expenses: There’s a ton of ongoing expenses you need to pay for when running your online store. This includes your Shopify subscription, email marketing service, analytics tools, funnel software, countdown timers, opt-in pop-ups, etc.
  • Processing fees: Payment processors, Shopify, Amazon, and a lot of platforms you sell on will take fees for every transaction you make. That’s how they make their money. That’s about 3% of your sales.

When you tally that all up, you’re left with VERY little room for error. If ad spend costs more than anticipated, you’re suffering a lost.

On the flipside, the Digital Rental Method has very low startup costs of probably about $100. All you do is pay for a landing page builder..

Beyond that, you’ll need to run cheap ads to rank for a couple of search terms. All it takes is about 5 to 10 bucks per ad campaign, which is a drop in the bucket.

With such low startup expenses, you can enjoy high profit margins.

As you scale, you may add on other tools and spend more on ads, but still you can expect a healthy 70-80% margins.

Winner: Digital Rental Method


Scalability is another indicator of long-term viability. If growing your business is hard, then you’d always have a huge cap on how much money you can make.

Think of scalability as your income potential..

There’s two factors that determine scalability:

  1. How hands-off the business is
  2. How simple the business is

Let me explain each.

Scalability means whether the business is hands-on or hands-off.

For example, a freelancing business is not scalable because you have to put in more hours of work to make more money.

When the business is hands off, you can safely remove yourself from the business, your systems and team does all the work for you.

Next, you want a very simple business model. That’s because the more complexity you add, the more effort and work you’ll need to put to keep things afloat.

Say you ran a digital marketing agency. It’s much easier to scale when you offer one service to one niche. If you offer 10 services to all niches, you can’t build systems to scale. That means you’re always putting out fires and pretty much created another job for yourself.

Okay, now back to ecom vs DRM.

Ecommerce is scalable. But it’s not completely hands-off because there’s a lot more complexity involved. You have to always test new ad campaigns and products. Your competitors are looking to undercut you and pick your pockets.

If you aren’t constantly on the ball, competitors will eventually catch up and you won’t know what hit you.

That said, you can hire VAs to handle customer service and marketing specialists to run ads.

On the flip side, DRM is highly scalable. You can grow your digital rental empire to as big or small as you want.

To double your income, all it takes is a few clicks and maybe a few messages sent out to business owners.

Everything is copy-paste, so it doesn’t take a lot of time to do on your end, once you have the wheels rolling. That allows you to spend just an hour or two a day maintaining your business. Then the rest of time, you can spend doing things like:

  • Traveling across National Parks in your campervan
  • Relax on the beach sipping on your fancy Mai Tai cocktail
  • Flying first-class to any dream destination of your choice
Winner: Draw


Again, you have to ask yourself, how easy is it for me to actually succeed?

Sure, you could make a boatload of money as a plastic surgeon but that would take years of skill and education.

With ecommerce, the model is easy to start, but I wouldn’t say it’s beginner-friendly. There’s a lot of different skills required to be successful.

As I mentioned earlier, you need to be proficient at skills like:

  • Paid traffic ads
  • Copywriting
  • Product research and sourcing
  • Email marketing
  • Funnel building

There’s a dozen other micro skills as well like customer service and so on.

With DRM, there’s really only one skill to learn. Sure, you’ll learn a lot of different skills during the process, but there’s only one skill that actually moves the needle— paid traffic.

When you can run simple PPC ads on Google, you scoop up all the hottest prospects.

There’s no fancy videos you need to make or crazy ad-copy. It’s all really simple and straight to the point.

And, there’s plenty of copy-paste templates, resources and tutorials that walk you through how to set them up, step by step…

If there’s people out there with ZERO computer skills who’ve made it work, chances are so can you too…

Winner: Digital Rental Method


As a business owner, you want to be in the driver’s seat of your financial success. Otherwise, it’s not very different from a job, where the big guy upstairs determines your worth…

When you run an ecommerce business, you go where the wind flows… Honestly, you kind of get in where you fit in.

Lemme tell you a personal story of mine..

Years ago, I sold mini putting greens that you could attach to your toilet bowl… (cheesy.. I know)

I spent day and night for weeks building my Shopify store, setting up premium plugins, email services and my entire sales funnel.

Then, it took me MONTHS of test and tinkering different ads to get this product to work.

Long story short, everything was going as planned. Finally, I could enjoy the fruits of my labor..

Then, out of nowhere like a thief in the night, the supplier stopped selling the product!


Overnight, everything I worked so hard for was gone..

In that moment, I decided to never pour my heart and soul into a business model that put my fate into someone elses hands.

Keep in mind that with ecommerce, there’s a lot out of your control:

  • Your suppliers control the product quality and shipping times
  • Payment processors tell you what you can & can’t sell
  • Facebook are strict on dropshippers
  • Payment processors can hold your money
  • Amazon policies can change overnight
  • Social media algorithm changes
  • Seasonal trends come and go for some products

All I’m asking is you should know what you’re getting into.

With DRM, everything is within your control. You decide who you want to work with and how much to charge..

There’s no suppliers or policies that really affect you. Sure, Google might change a thing or two, but you could always pick up and move to a different ad platform.

When you follow the DRM program, you always have access to cutting-edge knowledge, so you’ll know how to navigate changes to Google ads, should they occur.

The beauty of DRM is that you control your financial future. Once you’ve built a rock-solid portfolio of digital rental properties, you’re practically set for life. No need to worry about your alarm clocks or crummy boss looking over your shoulder.

Imagine you built a highly successful ecommerce business, only for it shutdown overnight… Maybe your accounts are suspended, so you can no longer sell online… Well, then you’d have to go back with your tail tucked between your legs back to your 9 to 5..

Yeah, no thanks.

Winner: Digital Rental Method

Conclusion – Which Should You Choose?

After spending years doing both ecommerce and the Digital Rental Method, I can say for certain that the DRM is the better business opportunity in every conceivable way.

Sure, ecommerce might be a good fit if you’ve already got tons of digital marketing experience under your belt. If you’re a wiz with paid traffic and copywriting, maybe just maybe you can sell a $25 dinky product from China.

But then again, why make your life harder than it needs to be?

The beauty of Digital Rental Method is that it works for just about everyone.. As long as you can make a commitment and take action on a proven system..

I know this because I’ve seen thousands of students change their entire family’s fortune in just a span of few months.. Families that may have been otherwise destined for poverty or a life of mediocrity were given the opportunity to build financial freedom. Rather than spending 40 years at a job they hate and hoping social security covers them for the remaining 20 years, they decided to take matters into their own hands..

  • Former truck drivers with no computer skills
  • Makeup artists who wanted to earn more money
  • Teachers who wanted to get paid what they’re worth, while still helping others
  • Busy mothers of three with plenty of mouths to feed
  • Ex-MLM guys who were tired of getting scammed

The list goes on.

Just about every type of person has made it work with the Digital Rental Method, as long as they put their head down and committed to taking action.

Who knows, on the other side, you might just finally build a 6-figure semi-passive income stream that runs itself…
