Easy to Follow Marketing Classes
My name’s Theo McArthur and I’ve been working online since 1995. I left my job and went full-time online in 2001. Teaching is probably the most satisfying thing I do. Being able to help others to learn potentially life-changing techniques and business models.


I’ve been involved with affiliate marketing for over 20 years, and 6 years ago I also delved into the world of e-commerce.  The knowledge I’ve amassed over the years is passed on through my classes.


Around half of my time is devoted to my online businesses, while the other half is devoted to teaching. At this time more than 105,000 people worldwide have taken my business courses and this has resulted in over 28,000 positive reviews and ratings.


I’m a great advocate of taking action because we learn the most by ‘doing it’. My classes are designed to set you on the right path and guide you along that path. They are designed to give you an in-depth knowledge of a subject. They are also designed to get you taking action and to help you avoid the pitfalls associated with lack of knowledge and the right resources. 


Many of my students have spoken of the ‘lightbulb’ moments they get when studying my classes!
