No longer cares about their instructors. Neither responds to e-mails nor promote our courses like they used to.

I've tried Udemy before and while it's definitely not a bad option..IF you can make it work for you..It's not ideal for MOST PEOPLE.

The downsides are:

  • at any time can change their revenue share policies, you need to share your revenue
  • You don’t own student data (emails)
  • You must follow pricing guidelines set by marketplace
  • No unique branding – all the courses look the same, it’s marketplace’s brand not yours, your competitors will be listed besides you
  • less profit comparing if you used hosted course platform or your own WordPress solution
    You can read more on online course platform pros and cons here.

That's why I narrowed the choice down to Thinkific or Teachable..here are some benefits to use your own controlled environment:

  • the ease of use, you can easily learn and build course platform yourself without hiring any designer or programmer
  • you don’t need to worry about hosting of course videos and files
  • you get page builder + membership site + shopping cart + learning/teaching tools = lots of solutions in one place
  • speed – you can set it all up very quickly
