Dave Kaminski - WordPress For Course Creators
Save Yourself Endless Frustration, Regrets and At Least $1,485
So you want to sell an online course. Or a digital course. Or whatever you want to call it.
And you have no clue what you’re supposed to do or use for any of it. Which means if you’re like most people, you’ll just end up using whatever your favorite influencer recommends…which means platforms like Kajabi, Teachable, Thinkific, Podia and others.
And then you’ll learn some bitter lessons. Like the marketing for these platforms is way better than the actual product. Like it’s a confusing pain in the ass to get anything looking or working the way that you want. Like there are certain things that you flat out can’t do. And like eventually, you’ll regret ever signing up for the platform in the first place.
But wait there’s more! If you decide to stop paying the platform, all of your stuff will disappear. All of your courses. All of your videos. All of your pages. All of your customers. Everything.
There’s a much better way. It’s called using WordPress instead. And even better than that, it can cost you less than $100 a year.
Why It's Better To Sell Your Courses Using WordPress
I’ll give it to you in one word: CONTROL.
With course platforms like Kajabi, Teachable, Thinkific, Podia and so on, you control NOTHING. If they don’t like the courses you’re selling or how you’re selling them, they can kick you out. If you don’t like the way something works, too bad, you’re out of luck. If they go out of business, sell their business or completely change their business model or pricing, you get screwed.
And like I said, if you don’t keep paying them every month or every year, all your stuff goes poof. Which is a sobering thought if you offer lifetime access to your courses, because 10 years from now your students will still expect access…and you’ll still have to be paying the platform to provide it.
WordPress could not be any more different, because you control everything. You can sell whatever courses you want, however you want. You can make things look and work exactly how you want. And for most people, it will cost you $10 or less a month to have it all.
To put it another way, using course platforms like Kajabi, Teachable, Thinkific and Podia is a lot like the misery of having to fly across country on commercial airlines these days.
While using WordPress is like having your own private jet.
You’ve probably heard about WordPress (or maybe use it), but have been reluctant to use it for courses because it seemed too intimidating. I can fix that for you. I can make it goof-proof and stress-free. I promise. Even if you have zero experience.
Why Should You Believe Anything I Have To Say?
I’ve been creating and selling online courses since 2005. Millions of dollars worth of courses. Courses on all sorts of topics (read: not just courses about how to make money selling courses).
And I’ve done it all by myself. No team. No assistants. No one to run crying to if something doesn’t work. If I didn’t figure it out myself, I didn’t eat.
I’ve also consulted and worked with more digital course creators than I can count, including some of the biggest influencers out there.
What all this means is that I have a very unique skill-set and a very unique perspective. I’ve been knee deep in the mud of every tool, app and platform used to sell courses.
That means I know what sucks and what is good. What makes your life easier and what makes it more frustrating. And what will slow you down or speed you up when it comes to having success with online courses.
I am also keenly aware of all of the pain points that course creators face…especially if it’s all new to them and they are drowning in all of the tech.
But perhaps most of all, I just tell it like it is. No bulls***. No motivation porn. And I don’t tell people to use something just because I’m being paid a commission under the table.
If something sucks, I tell you not to use it. If something is good, I tell you to use it.
And when it comes to online courses, I’m telling you that you’re going to be far better off by using WordPress.
If this Author or Course helped you make money or more money. It is really worth it if you go and buy his/her course. Get feedback and help by his/her community. The Author support is much more valuable than the course itself.
