I love that my job is: Reliable

I love that my job is: Reliable

Your one-dimensional job seemed
like a sensible idea. Until your first day.

Your one-dimensional job seemed
like a sensible idea. Until your first day.

You're smart and creative.

You know you could be loving every minute of what you do,
instead of feeling stuck and bored at your 9-5 job.

But quitting and going back to school just ain’t an option.

Grad school meets MOOC in this 4-month graduate level online
digital marketing course. Learn everything you need to know to
become a savvy + successful digital marketer. And do it all in
your spare time. 

No wonder you can barely get out of bed.

You're unmotivated, with a sinking feeling in
your stomach that you are on the wrong path.

You don't expect to love every second. But the deep lack of fulfilment at work is suffocating you.

Big time.

  • Your relationships are suffering and your friends are worried about you.
  • You’re miserable, moody and snappy, with a dark cloud of discontent dampening your joy.
  • You count the seconds till the day is over, scrolling through instagram dreaming of your next vacation
  • You know deep in your bones that this in not what you were born to do
  • You can barely bring yourself to tell people what your job title is – even though it’s impressive on paper
  • You look for ways to escape, trying to compensate by finding a new hobby or taking up a new sport.
  • You grapple with the meaning of life (“to be or to be… that is the question?”)
So you give
yourself a
pep talk.

But quitting is not in your vocabulary.

Blah blah blah, blah-bitty-blah.

But, if you’re honest, you know that this is not
what you were put on this earth to do.

You contemplate your options.

"You're a grown-up
- so deal with it
and be
"I should be
grateful to have a
job - especially in
this economy."
"All jobs take
time to adjust"
“It’s naive to expect
to love all parts of
your job.”

Go back to school for some unnamed magical mystery profession (+ a heaping serving of more student loans).

Selling your car and flying to teach English in an Indian village (or dusting off your high-school guitar and joining a band).

Switching departments or
teams (or moving to a new
organization, or new
continent…or planet?)

But none of those address the real issue.

Because what you really need (and deserve) is to flex your creativity and channel your logical brilliance - in the framework of a stable, lucrative and stimulating career.

A career where you can….

…challenge your logic-driven left brain and
express your free-thinking right brain.
…earn good money and make a difference.


…be creative and be able to measure your impact.
…work with people and dig into data

You’re not looking for a career. You’re looking for a calling.

You’ve got the passion.
You’ve got the work ethic.
And you’ve definitely got the brains.

What if you could find a creative, brainy, and lucrative career without leaving your job, going back to school, or starting from scratch?

What if instead of ….

Dreading waking up on Monday morning and
counting the seconds for the day to end


Being embarrassed to talk about your job
because its so disjointed from your inner self


Work being a “routine” and something you do
because you have to pay the bills


Feeling trapped in a one-dimensional job
where you can’t express the different parts of
your personality


Being bored, unchallenged and stuck doing
the same thing every day

You have a job where you would….

Be so excited to go to work, and your
happiness at work spills over into your whole
life, your relationships


Be proud to talk about your job because it’s
so cool, interesting and engaging


Know deep in your bones that what you
are doing is making a positive and
measurable impact


Be challenged to stretch both sides of
your brain, by being analytical problem
 and creative


Never knew what you would be doing next —
working with clients, analyzing data and
writing creative headlines

"My life did a complete 180 since Danny’s course"

After a few jobs, I ended up working in a retirement village, but it wasn’t challenging or analytical enough. I was looking for a way out. I dreaded going to work. I need a balance between analytical and creativity. I had no idea what digital marketing was. I took a leap of faith – and had never been to a class like that. Danny is so enthusiastic and takes time to explain step-by-step. I now work in Danny’s firm and my life has done a complete 180. Every other job in my post college career, I always had some sense of feeling unsettled. Now, I am so excited to go to work. I love talking about what I do. I get to connect both parts of my brain, and Being in a job I love affects my whole life. It’s about being happy in all parts of my life, and not waiting for your day to end. I didn’t know you could turn creativity into a career.

Rachael H.

"I landed on the perfect profession where I can
be creative and analytical"

I was alway reallys good at Mathematics, so I became an actuary. But I hated it. It was isolating and I was trapped In excel formulas all day long and I was not really interacting with people. I wanted something creative and data-driven. I thought about becoming a Math teacher. I then took Danny’s class. It changed my career, and my life. Danny’s class teaches you real hard skills you can put on your resume. You can leave your class, go use the skills for yourself, family, business or clients. Now, I am proud of my career and of what my career title is. I love what I do. I feel I’ve landed on the most perfect profession, because I can write and it’s data-driven.

Danny has one goal: for his students to succeed, and gives everything he can to ensure they do.

Danny’s course taught me everything I needed to know about the industry of digital marketing. I had little knowledge on digital marketing prior to however, the course was both very informative and practical. It’s been a year since I took the course. I never really thought about doing digital marketing prior to taking the course. As a result of taking the course, it landed me a job in my final semester of grad school and secured it post graduating. Honestly speaking, I love it! It’s very flexible, each day if different and I have the opportunity to figure out what works for me.

-- Kristina Knowles,
Social Media Manager at a Health and Wellness Center

The course gave me knowledge and experience that boosted my resume and skills,and gave me a strong foundation in Digital Marketing. Though the great asset of his course is Danny as an educator. He’s incredibly knowledgeable, and all he wants to do is help his students succeed. I truly believe Danny’s course and his passion for teaching is what landed me in my career today.  I have a full time offer once I graduate for my dream job! I don’t know if I would be in this position without his course.

-- Brianna H.,
Marketing Intern at Fortune 500 Company

I was a filmmaker looking to move into the marketing industry and Danny gave me the confidence to follow my dream. Danny showed me the value of digital marketing and how essential it truly is in today’s marketing world. Thanks to Danny, I found a great calling and the confidence to thrive in this industry.

-- Michael P.,
Digital Marketing Specialist at a Strategic Branding Agency

I knew I was looking for a career switch when coming into the program, but I didn’t know what I was interested in. Taking two of Danny’s courses helped me find my new interest and career outlook! I was offered a full-time opportunity from my internship programs! I’ve been able to use Danny’s class and the course’s real-life experience for my personal career advancement. I love that the marketing industry is constantly evolving, versatile, and creative. It’s a fun, beneficial, and informative career path.

ODEO is for you...

If you:

  • Feel unfulfilled in your current career and want a career which allows you to combine your creativity & analytical genius
  • Are looking for a job where you can measure your impact and make a tangible difference in people’s lives
  • Are known for getting bored easily and need to do different things every day
  • Love data-driven strategy and are talented at creative storytelling
  • Value human interaction, and also have a rare knack for strategic problem solving

Then ODEO is what
you have been looking for.

Hi, I'm Danny Gavin

I’m the founder and chief strategist of award-winning Optidge Digital Marketing. I’m also an adjunct professor of digital marketing at University of Houston. As a lecturer, I’ve been privileged to teach and mentor hundreds of students. While many of them had no prior knowledge of digital marketing, the ones that excelled shared a similar profile.

They were talented, hardworking and strong in either (or both) creative and analytical skills. They doubted where (and if) they could find career fulfilment where they could flex their diverse (and seemingly contradictory) talents.

Many went onto work in the field – and in doing so came upon what they thought was impossible: a career where meaning, fulfilment and whole-brain expression was part of the package.

My passion for taking a highly advanced subject, and breaking it down into engaging and understandable pieces means that anyone can master the material if they invest themselves fully.

That’s why I created the ODEO track for women. Digital marketing offers a whole new range of options for women who are looking for a flexible, enjoyable and lucrative career. I’ve taken a high-level course (which you generally can only access at graduate level) so you too can confidently land a job in the world of digital marketing – and enjoy a meaningful, flexible and stimulating career – while being available for your family.

What my awesome + inspiring students say

Your class was super informative, entertaining and great for a lack of words 😉 Recently I was able to land a job because of all that you taught and can’t be any more grateful!!!”

Jackie K.

Danny presented the material in a way that was interesting and easy to understand, even when the material was more technical. I really enjoyed the labs (challenges) because the practical application helped to reinforce what we learned in lectures and gave me the opportunity to use many different tools.”

Edward R.

Danny is a phenomenal teacher. He explained everything well, and it was really enjoyable. The information he gave is just so rich. I feel like I just learned a whole new world and how it works.”

Sarah D.

It was an amazing course. Danny is a great teacher.

Breindi E.

I always want to learn about SEO. There’s a lot to it. It was a bit overwhelming to a certain degree, but Dan broke it down. A lot of the information Dan gave opened my eyes and I really appreciate it.”

Jack F.

Great practical experience that really helped the class concepts sink in. Danny’s enthusiasm for the topics of the course is really motivating and makes the subject very interesting.

Kellie L.

I’ve been to many classes in my life and the worst feeling is coming in and seeing that the instructor can’t instruct, or doesn’t instruct, or some other complaint you have about the teacher. In this case, there’s absolutely none. Danny is great. I’m sure it showed and everybody appreciated his class. We really learned a lot.”

“Danny’s course gave me a clear picture of how versatile a marketing skillset can be. The hands-on experience with local businesses built my confidence as a marketing professional and instilled a discipline for creating a product for clients that is consistent and polished. My life has changed immensely since taking his courses. I obtained a job in local government that allows me to work remotely, which has so much value during a pandemic.”

Technical Communications Coordinator

“Without his course I maybe would have never dived into the field of SEO. I learned all the basics in this course, which allowed me to build in depth knowledge about online marketing later on.”

SEO Professional


I’ve taught myself the basics of digital marketing, and do some
digital marketing in my job already. Am I too advanced?

Many of my students had experience in digital marketing prior to completing my courses. After the courses, they accelerated in their careers (and earnings) due to the confidence they gained and the skills they learned in the course. That’s because you cannot compare a person who has picked up pieces of knowledge to someone who knows the comprehensive foundation of the discipline. Even if you are familiar with, and have used, some aspects of digital marketing, the comprehensive and highly technical nature course will enable you to progress rapidly in your career, command a higher salary and carry yourself with confidence.

What if I don’t have time to put in the work right now?

You will need a minimum of 10 – 12 hours a week to watch the classes, do the readings and complete the challenges. Mastering this skill set in 15 weeks is an ambitious promise, so without the investment of time, it will remain theoretical (and largely useless).

What if I don’t know anything about digital or marketing?

Many of my top students who now hold prestigious positions in the industry never knew a thing about digital or marketing before my class. They had wildly varied backgrounds – including engineers, business students, actuarial scientists, psych majors and healthcare undergrads – but all were:

1.Hard-working and driven.
2.Strong in both creativity and logic
3.Open to learning new things

If you have these three character traits, you will excel in this field (and have a blast doing it).

When will the training take place? What’s the course schedule?

Course launches around November 2024 with the final project due ~15 Weeks Later. You will get a detailed schedule with all meetings and information upon registration. All classes and sessions will be recorded and uploaded for lifetime access. But, to achieve the completion badge, you will need to submit challenges by the required submission date.

But, aren’t there other places to learn Digital Marketing?
Isn’t the internet flooded with free tutorials?

There are thousands of places where you could learn some aspects of Digital Marketing. But the people who succeed in Digital Marketing (and get paid the big bucks) are those who have a solid foundation of the most up-to-date methods along with practical experience of putting all the pieces together to form a solid strategy. They also have a strong portfolio and the confidence that comes with mastering the technical aspects from the ground up.

What kind of job can I apply for once completing this course? Will anyone really hire me?

Dozens of my students landed jobs before they had completed my courses. That’s because you gain a robust portfolio of actual campaigns you’ve worked on, along with the industry knowledge & broad understanding that sets you apart from the competition. Once you complete the course you will be qualified to:

1. Work as a junior digital marketer in a range of positions.
2. Run the entire digital marketing function for a small business
3. Set up your own freelance business managing digital marketing for several small businesses

I’m on a senior managerial level at my company already. I’d like to learn more about Digital Marketing so I have more control of the strategy. Is this for me?

Absolutely. This course will take you from feeling out of your depth when dealing with your marketing team, ask incisive questions and direct the strategy accordingly. Every single business executive will benefit from a foundational understanding of digital marketing, and will improve your results and impact on the whole. (Your team may learn a thing or two on the way.)

Digital marketing is evolving - every second. Will this information be relevant in the next year or two?

Great question. This is a real-world course, and since the industry is changing all the time, I will be updating the course material on a bi-annual basis. Lifetime access means you get all the updates as they become available (and new bonus classes too).


One last thing:

I guarantee that you’ll never get access to this exact course again for this price (the next cohort could be close to double in price).

There are no guarantees of

a.When I will open up the next cohort

b. What will the price will be (probably close to double the current pricing)


Content-only courses of this level begin at around $3000 – without the support, accountability community or personal mentorship. University level courses begin at $5000 minimum, and take on average 9 months to complete.

So if you want high-level Digital Marketing skills QUICKLY – you want to sign up. Now.

Remember: There is a 100% guarantee for a full refund within 14 days. So there is no risk.

Of course, you could carry on...

• Googling new jobs while you finish your mind-numbing report

• Dreading going to work and scrolling through Instagram dreaming of your next vacation

• Throwing your unique talents down the drain and counting the seconds till the weekend
