If you are considering offering a FREE or PAID course, I highly suggest using Teachable as a platform. It is so easy to use, efficient and works with your brand!  I pretty much used YouTube to help me out when it came to figuring it out. The sales page is amazing and it makes for an easy sell with clients. The good thing about Teachable is that it is completely FREE to sign up for. They have upgraded options available that you can use once you start growing but the free option works well. You can literally start making sales on courses using the FREE options.

The only thing with the FREE option is that they take a really small percentage of each sale you make. And you get paid after 30 days providing your client do not do a refund. If you upgrade to the next package up, you make all profits, you can offer payment plans and you can add affiliate partners to help sell your course. I would suggest starting up with a FREE course to build your email list. Sign up for Teachable today!
