My name's Theo McArthur and I've been working online since since 1995. I left my job and went full-time online in 2001. Teaching here on Udemy is probably the most satisfying thing I do. Being able to help others to learn life changing techniques and business models.
Over the last 15 years or so I've created and marketed many digital e-learning products and have also worked extensively in the field of affiliate marketing. I've built a number of 'authority' blogs to promote affiliate products and additionally worked on many other methods of marketing and profiting with affiliate offers. I started list building in 2006 and this has formed a central part of my online career.
In the spring of 2013 I started selling on Amazon. Previous to that I had never sold any physical products online. Today I also run three ecommerce websites.
I'm still an affiliate marketer and also a vendor of my own information products. However, I always wanted to sell physical products too, and Amazon was the obvious place to get started.
Starting on Amazon without the guidance of an experienced seller can be tough and the courses I took myself were not complete and were missing certain vital parts of the 'puzzle'. I learned more through trial and error than anything else, and that's what prompted me to create a step-by-step blueprint to success on Amazon.
In 2014 I also set up my first ecommerce store and since then, I've added two more.
Sometimes I get asked how I manage to get so much done. It's simply a case of organisation and prioritising (is that a word? Anyway, I'm sure you know what I mean!)
I fully understand that everybody's different and a business model or income method that suits one person, may not suit another. Therefore here on Udemy, I try to offer a variety of courses to cater for all levels of experience and all aspirations.
