What People Say About Margo's Courses
Over 4,000 Students Have Taken Margo's Courses. Here's what some of them had to say:
Margo is an incredibly knowledgeable and engaging teacher. She takes big concepts and breaks them down in a super-digestible way, bringing all the disparate pieces together. I learned SO MUCH.
Carolyn Holdsworth, Marketing Masterclass: The Art and Science of Getting People to Care
Absolutely brilliant class, and so well explained! Thank you so much! I am also an academic (approaching recovery and applying for a sales-related role), and I was terrified. You have taken that fear away
Annika Szameitat, Honest Selling Secrets: How to Be Good at Sales Without Compromising Your Ethics
Margo provided some very cool actionable details. Well worth the time spent watching this one. Really quite valuable. Especially as a newbie to marketing.
Jerry Robertson, Marketing Masterclass: The Art and Science of Getting People to Care
This is a masterclass in the truest sense of the word. Margo takes what can be a very slippery and complex subject and distills it into bite-sized real-world examples and applications. At just an hour and 15 minutes, it's digestible enough to share with teams and to get everyone on the same page about what really matters in marketing right now, but the volume of information and insight she manages to pack into that short time is exceptional. I've already shared this class with colleagues, and I may even send it to clients in the future (it would save everyone so much time if we could all sing from Margo's hymn sheet from the start of every project!) I highly recommend this class to teams and also to freelancers and entrepreneurs who serve clients with teams.
Amanda Gareis, Marketing Masterclass: The Art and Science of Getting People to Care
If you're in sales, marketing. client care, or... well.. anywhere... this class (and instructor) will be revolutionary to the way you think about marketing. Complex marketing ideas broken down with simple, hilarious examples. Logical steps. And the connections between all the things! It's an incredible resource.
Arina Kharlamova, Marketing Masterclass: The Art and Science of Getting People to Care
This course is geared towards marketing teams, but really, anyone who is out there trying to reach people in any way will get so much out of it!!! It's about how to get people to care after all, and the psychology behind how we think and respond. The material and concepts are fresh and down to earth. Margo is super engaging, easy to listen to and makes it FUN (and funny). She also includes tangible examples that drive home all of the points so they make sense and aren't just theoretical. I loved this course and highly recommend it!!
Elizabeth Erna, Marketing Masterclass: The Art and Science of Getting People to Care
I highly recommend taking this class. Despite Margo's focus on marketing teams in organizations, I found this extremely valuable as a solopreneur. Great combination of timeless principles, actionable advice, and fun and engaging examples. Anyone in business can benefit from taking this class. Honestly, anyone outside of business would benefit too, by deepening their understanding of human psychology.
Matt Rudnitsky, Marketing Masterclass: The Art and Science of Getting People to Care
Perfect primer for anyone who wants to learn how to sell without being pushy, sales-y, or spammy. Excellent, to-the-point content with lots of actionable tips.
Sarah Cottrell, Honest Selling Secrets: How to Be Good at Sales Without Compromising Your Ethics
If you make things and imposture syndrome is your BFF, chances are you have a) morals and b) something valuable to share. The problem is that it's not enough to make the thing. To help the people you want to help you need to SHARE what you've made.... aka you need to sell it. Margo breaks down the principles behind selling in a super approachable, sigh-of-relief kind of way. She basically tells you it's not only OK to be a human, it's an advantage. THANK GOODNESS hah because trying to do the scripted sales thing is the worst. Wish I had a course like this out of business school. It would have been a huge help with my confidence.
Kate Smalley, Honest Selling Secrets: How to Be Good at Sales Without Compromising Your Ethics
This was my favorite half-hour Class I've ever taken in my life. Learned so much! Thank you 🙂
Lorraine Musquiz, Honest Selling Secrets: How to Be Good at Sales Without Compromising Your Ethics
Margo's done a fantastic job of boiling down what could take years of learning and mistakes into 19 minutes of effective learning. If you are uncomfortable selling your service, product, or ideas, take this course. She blends experience with psych and it results in real value!
Darrah Brustein, Honest Selling Secrets: How to Be Good at Sales Without Compromising Your Ethics
Margo is smart and human and makes me understand sales better than any other teacher or experience I've had. She's to the point and her lessons are memorable.
