Overall Satisfaction with Thinkific

We use Thinkific as an LMS for several online courses that have thousands of enrolled and active students and is a primary source of our business offerings and revenue. If you are looking for a way to easily offer online courses to a large community, I highly suggest checking out Thinkific.
  • It was straightforward to get everything set up and ready to go. Within a day, I had all of our payment processing systems, CRM, and WordPress website integrated.
  • It provides a great user experience for students. We have had little to no complaints about how to navigate their online courses and access their content.
  • I'd like to see their affiliate link functionality be a bit more robust and flexible. For example, we'd like to host the course landing/sales pages on our WordPress website, but to do that, we have to create a redirect in Thinkific. This makes for unique user experience if someone clicks our affiliate link - they're taken to one page and 10 seconds later redirected to another page.
  • Their quiz feature is tricky if you're trying to do something that is "self-assessment" based versus having right or wrong questions.
  • Thinkific has had a positive impact! It requires less time to set up courses, and getting something up and running and making money for us is pretty easy.
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.
  • I love their "suggest a feature" feature - where you can ask for something you wish it had. (I've asked for a handful of things and have actually GOTTEN a few of them!)
  • They're very responsive whenever we've had questions or issues, though those have been minimal.
  • I was impressed by their customer outreach - their high-level folks spent over an hour on the phone with me getting my feedback so they could improve.

  • I have actually already recommended Thinkific to a variety of colleagues!
  • Thinkific is excellent for anyone looking to set up an online course and doesn't want the hassle and cost of a custom platform. It can be expensive if you're going to white-label it (we do, and it costs $500/month), but that's much cheaper than the development cost of maintaining your own platform.
