Still Got Questions?

You get everything on our platform. All the courses, the video archive, the forums, everything. No restrictions.

The courses feature streaming video lessons by leading industry speakers and authors. Courses also include downloadable Student Workbooks, section quizzes, suggested exercises, and sample projects available as supplemental learning material. Students will also have access to 8 live webinars each month, covering a variety of trending topics in online marketing.

Many of our faculty are authors, and materials may reflect the content of their publications; thus, being familiar with their published work may be an asset, but is not at all required.

We think of it like a gym membership: You’ve got access to all the machines, even if right now you’re only working on your biceps.

We promote a cross-training philosophy, and make all our courses available to all our members. Digital marketing rewards the multi-hyphenate, and the more you understand multiple disciplines the healthier your skill set will be, and the more valuable you are to your company and clients.

That said, some of our licensing partners do offer discrete access to specific courses. If that’s what’s best for you, we’ll point you in their direction.

Not everyone needs Certification. The real value is in learning new skills, and the opportunities that provides for improved results, and new prospects.

But Certification is a way to prove that you’ve done that work, and honed those skills. Our Certifications are recognized by OMCP®, the industry leading certifying body. Only the very best training courses that meet their stringent requirements earn that honor.

Great question. The number of video hours vary by course, and you’ll want to watch, pause, and review some videos once or twice. Plus, there are workbooks to review and fill out, and recommended exercises. Add to that the time to take quizzes, and any extra real-world application you want to do to test what you’re learning, and you’ll be pretty busy.

Self-paced members probably spend a total of 25-35 hours to complete a single Certification course. Since they study at their own speed as their schedule allows, how long that takes depends on how many hours you’ve got to dedicate to your studies each day or week. A few members have earned a Certification in a single month. On average, most have busy lives, and take about 10 weeks at 2-3 hours a week.

Coached Master Certification is a structured 90 day course, and the weekly exercises are mandatory. Plan on spending 5-7 hours per week, more when you’re working on your final project.

In a word, no. But if you could just buy a Certification, it wouldn’t really have any value. Our courses are challenging even for experienced marketers.

But if you have a desire to learn, take the time to watch the video lessons carefully, take good notes, and rewatch videos when necessary to assure you’re absorbing the materials, you’ll do well. Experienced or not.

Yep. If you’re a monthly member, you can cancel whenever you’re ready. You’ll maintain access till the end of your billing period. Plus, monthly members and Coached Master Certification students can get a full refund any time during the first 7 days after joining.

But quitting isn’t in your nature. :)
