Thinkific Over-delivers for New Course Creators

I have used Kartra, Kajabi, WishList Member, and ClickFunnels to deliver digital content in the past. Out of all of these platforms, I selected Thinkific because overall, it just worked better. I very much dislike when software tries to become something it's not, and this is happening a lot lately with different technology. The company decides to pivot and tries to add something to its tech stack and it's completely inferior. For example, Thinkific has a 'sales page builder' and aims to help course creators sell their course, however, it's not that good. Why? Because Thinkific is a course delivery platform, not a sales page builder! I think software needs to be phenomenal at what they do and stop worrying about trying to be something they're not. As another example, ClickFunnels is a great sales page builder but a terrible course delivery platform. So the reality is, you need both. But in the scheme of things, you have Kajabi who is trying to be everything to everyone and tries to combine it all and they have failed miserably. I'm not a fan of Kajabi at all. Thinkific's user interface is much, much better.

We started with Teachable but didn't like it because their customer support was so bad. There is a learning curve with both of them. In the beginning, it is hard to get used to the interface and create the course. All the questions come in the first two weeks, and then you will have learned your way around. Thinkific had an excellent onboarding session. They also have their own staff answer specific questions by email within 24 hours. Teachable used Zendesk people who didn't know what they were talking about and didn't respond fast enough.

Simple & Intuitive Learning Management System That Looks Great & Easy to Use

While researching for a learning management system, our main criteria were ease of setup, simplicity of the user-facing interface, and cost. Moodle was a product we looked at as the community edition was free. It was taken off our list as it required a significant amount of setup and didn't seem very easy to use. Thinkific is so simple to use and intuitive.

We chose Thinkific because of its price point and financial structure, the ability to customize it to suit our needs, the range of features it had, and also the look/feel of the course experience itself.

Thinkific is easier to use, and has a lower price point than Teachable. Thinkific has better site tools and customization. Teachable has better marketing tools but it was not a feature we needed. Thinkific has a limited free edition. I liked the customizable branding of Thinkific. Another benefit of Thinkific was its drag and drop features to build your courses.

Prior to using Thinkific, I used Teachable free ad then a paid plan for about 18 months as it was one of the most recommended course platforms back in 2015 and 2016. I moved to Thinkific in 2017 when I wanted to try something different that offered a lot more features, integrations and flexibility.
