The program was very informative and really helped to improve my understanding of e commerce. I really did have a low level of technical knowledge. Yvette and Zoe were excellent presenters and it was great to be part of the Facebook group as well to have extra queries answered.
I’ve received up to date information which is very helpful and timely. I’ve had a chance to look closely at shortcomings in my business and seen new potential.
The completion of this course has enabled me to gain a work experience position in the web design industry with a view to a full time position. I had initially applied for this Project Management position 8 months ago but was unsuccessful due to a lack of “technical knowledge” of the digital space. My new GUTS knowledge added to my extensive Project Management experience has now got me in the door with the potential for permanent employment back in the IT industry. Very exciting stuff……
Loving the information. Fantastic to be able to access the webinars anytime which has really worked for me. Lots of information for someone new to it all- but taking the key points and applying and great to have all the resources to go back to.
I recently completed this program and loved it! If you want to ‘get up to speed’ on everything digital for your business, book in now to take advantage of the early bird special.
Johannes did a great job training us thank you. He was very clear and knows his material inside out!

I completed the GUTS intake 2 and recently launched my new website!! I learnt a great deal from this course and as it is my first attempt at designing a website, I realise that it is a work in progress and that I still have a long way to go. But great that I could even have a go at this!
I am not very internet/computer savvy but it has been rather exciting even getting to the point of publishing a website – it is just great to actually have a web presence….my kids (aged 29-36 who have good computer skills) are impressed too! The GUTS program has boosted my knowledge and confidence in going online with our business…. I want to thank the advanced users for helping me through the Facebook members lounge, it has been greatly appreciated. Special thanks to Yvette, Zoe, Karen, Elise and all in the GUTS team, has been just great.
Using all the knowledge and tools we have learned from the course, we have totally reconstructed a new website, blogs, FB, twitter etc. We are receiving approx. 50-60 emails per day in response to posts, blogs, likes etc. We have recently re-graded our new site and have achieved 44%! And we have by far, overtaken our competitors! And all in a matter of weeks…’s amazing! So we are right up there on the front page of Google! Check out our new site! I recommend the course to anyone! Thank you all so very much!
