Recommended Course Platforms
Below are the 2 course platforms I recommend for the best value to price ratio.
There are many good course platforms out there, and I encourage you to check them all out.
But if you're looking for the best "all-inclusive" options that are also beautifully designed, sign up for both and rest them for free!
This is the one that I'm using currently. This platform has EVERYTHING you need in the Basic package!
It includes the full flow from creation to funnels and emails and FB support.
Even better, if you join with the Beta price (on now!), you'll be locked into that low rate forever!
You can also pay monthly ($47/mo)! Simply send Zenler an email when they send you the registration link. You can test it for FREE too!
I have a course set up here too. Course Craft has a lovely and intuitive set up, and is very easy to use.
Course Craft is great for artist moms and coaches who want more of a visually appealing landing page straight up, without all the extra fuss of landing pages, etc.
Also, VERY affordable! You can set yourself up for FREE and test it as long as you like!
