Why should you consider becoming an OvernightGeek Real Expert (OGRE)? First of all, it’s a ton of fun. During all of our courses, our students interact with instructors using real life examples from the student’s lives – we use client examples and other scenarios to prove social media best practices.

You’ll understand the difference between OGRE courses and gross, boring webinars after you’ve taken one of our courses.

ALL OvernightGeek University courses occur online. Once your payment is processed, you will receive an invitation to join the class. Students will be able to view the instructor via webcam, and hear/engage in the live class via a conference call-in number. You DO NOT need a webcam to participate, students will not be on camera.
