Here's What Other Bloggers Have To Say...

"This is your fast-start course to your blogging career. It will accelerate your learning curve and help you avoid the most common mistakes that new bloggers commit."

Fitz Villafuerte - Award-Winning Blogger at ReadyToBeRich.com and WPBB Blog Coach

"Marv's teaching style is relaxed, easy to absorb and on point. His easy-to-approach style makes learning fun and engaging. I've worked with him for months now and I can tell he always carries himself with class and a high degree of integrity. That's what you want in a trusted mentor.

If you get a chance to work with him, take it!"

Allan Ngo - Influential Blogger, Affiliate Marketing Expert at DigitalSolopreneur.com and WPBB Blog Coach

“Marv can get you results because he also started with zero experience in blogging 3 years ago. Today, he's got speaking and consulting gigs, sponsorships and everything a blogger can ask for. You'll learn how he did it, and how you can too, inside this course"

J3 Patiño - Personal Finance Blogger at Pinoy Money Academy and Game Of Wealth.

"The WordPress Blogging Basics course is the ultimate training when it comes to blogging for beginners -- from creating your first blog to turning it into a business. I highly recommend this course!"

Roel Manarang - Award-Winning Blogger at Tycoon.ph

"Having a blog is an effective way to communicate a message about your business or to communicate your thoughts about things that you are passionate about. Taking this course will even make you realize that your blog is something that you can earn from, too!"

Ginger Arboleda - Blogger at Mommy Ginger and Founder of Manila Workshops and Taxumo.

What Our WPBB Graduates Have To Say About The Course...

"It’s been almost a month since I joined your Wordpress Blogging Basics Workshop. I’m so happy that I joined the workshop and got to meet Marv!

Why? Because it was as if a light bulb turned on and things became clearer to me. Now I know I wanted to have freedom in my life – in career, in location, in finances, in doing things. I want to be independent. I want to own my life the way I want my life to be and guided upon by God.

After the end of my workshop, I ran to my husband and just blurted many things I learned from the workshop, but more so my own realizations of what I want to do with my life. When Marv spoke of his freelance journey, it spoke to me. I’m so happy that I finally figured out what I want.

The mentors were such great fit with the workshop. It was perfect that the workshop incorporated mentors because the insights they gave were truly spot on and made us think long and hard about our own blog. And when do you get to have the chance to be critiqued by pillars of the blogging and affiliate marketing industries here in the Philippines, right?

Almost a month in, and I am happy to share that I have bought my domains (theunmom.ph, themomme.ph, and www.nadelyn.com) as my online homes. Thank you also for being the inspiration for my theunmom.ph domain. I have yet to write the posts but I am happy that I finally started it. Now, the focus is to write!!!

Marv, I thank you very much for sharing yourself and your thoughts with us. I wish you well. Who knows maybe someday we can collaborate in a passion project!"

- Nadelyn Torres-Baldonado - Mom-preneur and Blogger at TheUnMom.ph

“Thanks to the WordPress Blogging Basics Workshop, I was reminded again that if you want to be the best in what you do, educate yourself, learn about it, research about it, and if you can, find a mentor.

- Ione Baon-Mejia - Biker Club Organizer and Blogger at Pinay Biker's Chronicles

"Wordpress Blogging Basics not only guided us on how to maximize wordpress as an online marketing tool, the exercises opened up new ideas and networking opportunities.

The best was the Q&A portion with the mentors wherein we were able to run through some of our thoughts and ideas like a test run. We learned a lot and we had fun!"

- Icel Dy - Real Estate Expert, and Blogger at IcelDy.com

Wordpress Blogging Basics gave me a step-by step guidance on how to create a blogging platform. My biggest win from the said workshop was finding out the niche for the blog that I could love to write and people would love to read. The workshop’s coaches were generous to provide a number of useful tips and resources for newbie and aspiring bloggers like me!”

- Renee Cavite - Certified Public Accountant and Blogger at Journals of a WAHM
