Looker Studio Ninja, Instructor at Better Than Data
My name is JJ Reynolds and I run Media Authentic, a full-measurement and analytics company. After joining Ahmad's masterclass, I was impressed by his accessibility and response to my hyper-specific questions. He provided unique answers that no tutorial or Google search could, while also teaching the theory behind it. I learned that data is a valuable asset and how to customize my agency's legal documents to clearly define who owns what piece of the machine. Ahmad's willingness to answer questions and offer kind and loving explanations is the real value of the masterclass.

Hi, my name is JJ Reynolds. I run Media Authentic, a full measurement and analytics company providing dashboards, analytics, and customer reports for all industries. I had some prior knowledge of Data Studio, so I pivoted my business to that.
When I joined Ahmad’s masterclass, I was impressed by what you can do with dynamic values, custom visualizations, and custom pieces that no one else is doing.
Access and response are what make the masterclass valuable.
Ahmad's access was the number one thing that stood out to me. He was able to respond to my hyper-specific questions, like how to grab a value from a weird table I had hacked together. There was no tutorial or Google search that could provide a response like that.
For me, it was 90% mindset shift. People don't often talk about data or marketing, but every marketing decision is based on a feedback loop. You do one action and see if it made you money. If it did, you do it again. If not, you don't. Knowing whether it made money is the question everyone has. Google Data Studio is the pinnacle of the Google ecosystem. It's the last domino in the chain to fall over. If you can deliver that, every client will be thrilled to work with you.
Asking the right questions and having a group of people look at it in a very kind way is the benefit.
I think the real value lies in Ahmad's willingness to answer unique questions that are specific to you and explain the theory behind them in a kind and loving way. The tactics are great too - like how to do data sources, build tables, and do things dynamically.
But it's the ability to ask questions and have a group of people look at it and say, "That was an amazing question - here's how you solve it," or "Why are you asking that question? It doesn't make any sense," that really makes the difference.
One of the most valuable assets is data and understanding who owns each component of the machine. After taking a masterclass, I'm working with a lawyer to customize our documents and clearly define who owns what in every aspect of the business.
