Would you like to see how we made ,637 during my first 28 days teaching on Thinkific? Will you take the complete course at http://u.jerrybanfield.com/courses/thinkific or watch this live video for a summary and answers to questions? I hope this video answers question like “What is the best website to self-host your own online video courses?” After years of hosting my courses on websites like Udemy, Skillshare, Stackskills, Curious, Skillsuccess, Amazon Video Direct for Amazon Prime customers, and Teachable, I finally made the switch to Thinkific because I wanted the very best hosting I could find for my courses which gave me complete control over my school.
On Udemy, it took me over a year to make my first ,000 despite thousands of hours of work and dollars advertising. On Skillshare it took well over a year even with 80 classes to make ,000. On Stackskills making over ,000 required partnering with other instructors to teach technical courses on Linux and information technology security. On Curious I still have not made over ,000 even though my Curious account went up in 2014! Skillsuccess might pay out over ,000 at this rate in 5 years. With Amazon Video Direct, even though hundreds of thousands of minutes have been watched by Amazon Prime customers, I still have not even earned ,000 in over six months! To make ,000 on Teachable took about six months but the interface was a nightmare and improvements continue to come slowly.
With Thinkific, it took less than four weeks and just simple promotion on my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/jerrybanfield to make over ,000 in sales with about a hundred subscribers at a month! The Thinkific system for hosting courses is so amazing I have again pivoted my business to focus primarily on creating value here and exporting it to other websites if I have time.
When you take this course at http://u.jerrybanfield.com/courses/thinkific you will see inside exactly what I did during my first month on Thinkific in a vlog style class following along my progress. If you have not signed up yet for Thinkific, would you use my link at https://www.thinkific.com?sa=f2d3845c3c because Thinkific will give us both a credit toward a paid plan when you do! Given that I am on the advanced plan which costs over ,000 a year, I really appreciate any reductions in the bill for 2018!
What I hope you get out of this course is motivation combined with practical tips to launch and scale your own school using Thinkific! Thank you very much for reading this!
