Overall Satisfaction with Thinkific

We use Thinkific across the whole organization to create, host, and distribute our course to teach financial advisors how to do college planning for families with college-bound teens. Using Thinkific solved the problems of piecing together our course with various WordPress plugins, iframes, and payment processing software. We also can create a free course to generate leads by offering significant value to financial advisors who aren't going to go "all-in" on college planning but benefit from knowing more.
  • It's easy to create a course website
  • Thinkific courses look professional
  • The WSIWYG could be better
  • The templates could be slicker
  • Leads went up 40% when we created a free course.
  • We went from idea to profitable business in 3 months.
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.
I rate Thinkific a ten because of its excellent customer service, ease of use, high-quality product, fair price with excellent ROI, and because they keep making improvements. Using Thinkific solved the problems of piecing together our course with various WordPress plugins, iframes, and payment processing software. It's easy to create a course website for people who can't write code.
