Tim Friesner started Marketing Teacher in 2000. It is now the most popular free marketing education website.
I noticed that when we began to set reading tasks for our university students, that they bypassed the library, and went straight to the IT Centre. Sounds silly almost 20 years later! Tim Friesner, founder and Director of Marketing Teacher.
So we learned some HTML and PHP, and began putting the lessons on to the Internet so that our University students could find them. Then we realised that marketing students, teachers and professionals from all over the World were recommending Marketing Teacher, and they still do!
Today, it is still free (although we accept donations), and has been accessed by many millions of marketing learners, studying at every level, in all cultural settings.
