Instructor Biography

Danny Guerin, eCommerce Expert, Entrepreneur, Online Marketer

Hello my name is Danny Guerin, I am a importer and online entrepreneur. I have been sourcing products from Alibaba for resale for nearly 10 years. I am also an eCommerce web developer and am very experienced with Magento, Shopify and Wordpress.

The eCommerce revolution is happening right now and I am excited to be a part of it and to help others to succeed too. With eCommerce still in its infancy there is more than enough to go around and by sharing what I know with others this only helps and strengthens our industry.

I try to be as visual as possible with my style of teaching whilst telling you exactly what you need to know. I also enjoy a giggle along the way too as if you are not having fun then learning is a lot harder.

I am constantly changing and updating my courses and hope that they meet and exceed all your expectations.
