Instructor Biography

KC Tan, Online Business Coach, Small Business Owner

In 2008, KC founded his first business, developing professional websites for business owners and helping them to market their websites online through search engines. Today, KC gets to do what he enjoys most, which is training – bringing his years of experiences and expertise to teach business owners and individuals on how to create their own websites and marketing them online.

Over the years, KC found that most people actually do not have much difficulty learning a new tool (say using WordPress to create a website). The real problem was that people often find themselves stuck or see no results because they simply had no idea what to use those newly acquired tools for!

This motivated KC to put even more focus on helping people to bridge this gap. KC believes that everyone has something so valuable in them that other people would want to learn from. The challenge is most people do not have a system to package and sell their knowledge. KC aims to equip everyone with the skill of turning what you know into something that people is willing to pay them for.

KC specializes in the areas of Search Engine Optimization, WordPress and eCommerce. He has extensive training experience and has conducted training courses for organizations including Singapore Compact CSR, Singapore Polytechnic, National University of Singapore Society (NUSS), Civil Service Club, JobsCentral Portal, CareerMinded and Singapore Business Federation (SBF). KC's entrepreneurial journey has also been featured in the book – “Are You Ready To Be The Next Entrepreneur?" – showcasing more than 30 successful stories of aspiring entrepreneurs!
