Instructor Biography

Max Stryker, List Owner/ Content Publisher/ Marketer/ Teacher/ Designer

In the age of information, content is king.

Since I was 10, I have created digital content. Videos, banners, blog posts, eBooks, guides... But it was not until I was 17 that I began to sell it.

I'm a serial entrepreneur who wandered through every possible college and career... From Business to Physics and Art to Design.

...chasing nothing but knowledge and the tools to make my visions manifest.

I have been all over the place. Became a Clickbank top vendor at the age of 21, worked at InInbox, a rising email service provider and created their entire educational content and support department. This experience made me realize the importance of building your own email address list, and how managing it correctly is the best way to secure success in the long run,

I've partnered with Process Street, a checklist based project management SaaS startup, and integrated the extreme value of team work and cooperation with like minded individuals.

I now work side by side with an extremely knowledgeable Udemy instructor named Matt Jensen, creating marketing based online content that we promote though our brand iMarket XL. So far we have 10 online courses and over 20k satisfied students.

iMarket XL and Udemy have given me the chance to stop looking... to focus my mind and experience in providing only the best educational video content. So far I'm happy... Though my mind will always wonder what the next step is going to be...
