Using Teachable to Create Digital Courses
Have you been thinking about creating your own digital course?
Do you get stuck on ALL the logistics of actually creating a digital course?
It really doesn’t have to be complicated. I promise!
Before I share the reasons why you should use Teachable to create digital courses, I challenge you to think about the number 1 question your community asks you.
How do I use Etsy to sell products?
How can I use my Facebook Business Page to reach new customers?
Where can I find a tutorial on creating my own logo and branding board?
Whatever it is, go write it down.
I promise you, that question will be your foundation for a future sellable digital course.
Which leads to the technical aspect of creating your digital course.
Ads, affiliate links, and sponsored posts can garner some great monthly passive income. But if it is a strong and steady passive income you are looking for, creating and selling digital courses is the best way to achieve that.
As a blogger, you LOVE writing and sharing your knowledge with others. Creating a digital course is exactly the same AND it provides immense value to your community by answering the 1 question you are asked the most.
Consider how powerful that is!
Creating 1 course that provides unique value to your own community. It’s one of the best ways to stand out and it is a solid passive income channel for your ever growing blog.
Home-based businesses with employees or direct sellers with teams can widely benefit from creating courses on Teachable.
Do you find that you share the same information with your team, but at different times?
Easily create cohesive team training for everyone on your team. Having access to all the same information ensures everyone is on the same page.
There are options to set the courses up to be free and only available for those you manually enroll.
For 2 examples of what your team courses may look like, click to view the information pages for my Origami Owl and Java Momma teams:
When it comes to new online tools, I am ALL about the intuitiveness of a platform.
I want to look at a system’s dashboard and pretty much know right away how to navigate and use the platform to do what I want it to do.
Teachable is super user-friendly and the layout of the dashboard makes creating digital courses easy. Here’s what the Teachable dashboard looks like.
It’s streamlined, easy to use, and straightforward.
I mentioned the ability to create free courses above in the Team Course section and I consider this to be a HUGE feature of Teachable.
Think about a possible mini-course lead magnet you could create for your blog! A mini-course would be a big opt-in freebie for those subscribing to your blog.
Teachable works well on a desktop and it’s mobile friendly. A team member of mine recently shared she was able to go through my course on her phone all while laying in bed.
Another feature I love is Teachable’s payment methods. Major credit cards and PayPal are supported which makes completing transactions effortless for your students.
And you know I’m all about the passive income strategies! Teachable makes it easy for you to set up your own affiliate program for your courses. Literally, with a click of a button, you decide who becomes an affiliate of your course and how much of a commission they will receive.
With all the online tools, schedulers, and systems I use to run my businesses, I expect a high standard when it comes to customer service and tech support.
Teachable has a robust knowledge base where you will most likely find the answers to your questions. For a specific question or issue, submit a support ticket for a detailed, personalized, and quick reply.
