About Us

Who we are and what we do

Welcome to Authority Hacker, where we help small business owners and in-house marketers master advanced marketing with ease. Our mission is to simplify complex marketing strategies into practical, actionable steps through our hands-on, no-nonsense training.

We Believe That

Online Marketing doesn’t have to be complicated
Too many practitioners try to sound smart by using complex words and concepts. Our goal is to make information clear and easy to consume by sharing exactly how we do things over the shoulder so you can perform at your peak.
Experience trumps theory
Most marketing content you consume online is created by people who haven’t done what they’re talking about. This leads to the sharing and repetition of outdated and ineffective advice. We aim to share first-hand knowledge only.
Transparency leads to trust
We’ve done well online but we’re not supermen. Unlike most “gurus”, we’re not afraid to say we don’t know or that we’ve failed. We hope that by being honest, we can earn your trust.
