Online Marketing Expert and Strategist, Coach, Consultant, and Writer
Steven O’Sullivan – Digital Marketing Expert, Consultant, WordPress SEO and Writer
Teaching small business owners is my passion. Helping entrepreneurs and solopreneurs to achieve their goals is my daily process. Learn from a wealth of experience.
I’ve been a self-employed entrepreneur for over 25 years. I’ve successfully owned and run a landscape construction business, a mortgage brokerage, sold real estate and most recently an internet marketing expert, consultant and teacher.
I’ve made all the mistakes for you, wasted all the money on useless marketing programs for you, so you don’t have to. I’ve made and lost hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years and you get to benefit from all this expensive experience included in the price. No extra charge.
Teaching and Courses
I first began teaching around 2004 at my mortgage company. I taught a class on personal budgeting. That might sound boring, but it was actually pretty fun. After that, I was hooked.
Later I taught Realtors at Keller Williams about productivity, marketing, business budgeting, organization, goal setting and more. A few years later I joined Coldwell-Banker and began teaching social media, blogging, WordPress, SEO, and marketing. I also consulted with their Top Producing Real Estate Agent and the company’s Broker.
In 2007, I started another company revolving around online marketing. My tagline was “I Make You Famous on the Internet”, and that’s just what I did for my clients. Since then I’ve consulted with dozens of private companies, created courses on Kindle Publishing, Video Marketing, and developed WordPress plugins for marketers.
But now I’m back to teaching, what I love. And I want to reach a larger audience, which is why I’ve chosen Udemy.
I look forward to getting to know you and helping you along your journey to success.
