You've just stumbled upon the most complete & in-depth online course on Google Data Studio. This course covers everything you'll ever need on Google Data Studio, in a format that is fun and engaging.

What you'll get from this course.

  1. I'll show you how to uncover important data patterns such as customer purchase behavior, sales trends or production bottlenecks.

  2. You'll learn all of the features in Google Data Studio that allow you to explore, experiment with and present data easily, quickly and beautifully.

  3. Because every module of this course is independent, you can start in whatever section you wish, and you can do as much or as little as you like.

  4. Each section provides an interesting new data set, solving real world problems that will challenge you so you can learn by immediately applying what you're learning.

  5. This course is updated constantly, as new Google Data Studio features are released.

Why learn Data Studio?

The reality is there are better data visualization products out there, like Tableau.

But Google Data Studio is without a doubt the best completely free product available. And after coming out of beta in September 2018, Google has been rolling out improvements and rapidly closing the feature gap.

In a few years, Google Data Studio will most likely dominate this space. And with this course constantly being updated, you'll always have the most up to date and relevant content, to keep you on the cutting edge.

What if I have questions?

I offer full support, answering any questions you have 7 days a week (whereas many instructors answer just once per week, or not at all).

This means you’ll never find yourself stuck on one lesson for days on end. With my hand-holding guidance, you’ll progress smoothly through this course without any major roadblocks.

There’s no risk either!

This course comes with a full 30 day money-back guarantee. Meaning if you are not completely satisfied with the course or your progress, simply let me know and I’ll refund you 100%, every last penny no questions asked.

You either end up with Google Data Studio skills, go on to develop great visualizations and potentially supercharge your career, or you try the course and simply get all your money back if you don’t like it…

You literally can’t lose.
