This week I wanted to share with you my thoughts on Thinkific.
Thinkific is just one of the many online course platforms available and in this blog I explain why I use this for myself and clients. And why you should probably use it to!
So let’s dive in!
1. User Friendly
There is something to be said for having a user friendly interface. It is easy to navigate both as a course creator and as a student. As a course creator they have a nice and simple navigation bar on the left of your home page. This allows you to navigate to your courses, design your site, support you students and more.
2. Content Hosting
Unlike self hosting a course on your WordPress website and then needing to host your video content somewhere else like YouTube or Vimeo; Thinkific hosts your videos and all content for you. Saving the extra time and money involved with hosting elsewhere. You just easily upload to your course inside the dashboard.
3. Simple & Clear Pricing
Thinkific has a Free Plan which allows you to test out the platform before committing to upgrading and paying either a yearly or monthly fee. The Pro Plan at $99/month is the best value plan, it allows you to use all the integrations, zaps and there are no transaction fees on enrollments. You can grab a free month on the pro plan here
4. New Site Builder
The new site builder (although not as great as I had hoped) is such a huge improvement on what the old themes were and compared to Teachable makes it easy to customise your home page, student dashboard, landing pages and more. You can select different sections to add to your pages and create a whole course website experience for your students.
Here’s a peek at what it looks like:
5. Customer Service
Thinkific has really great customer service although they are based in Vancouver, Canada on PST time I always have a reply within 24 hours (most of the time sooner) and they really go out of the way to help you.
Overall Thinkific is a great platform to host your course on. It’s easy to use, affordable and have some great features to create a beautiful course that converts.
