Tools for Creating Online Courses

Hosting Your Course

Do you plan on having your own domain name and driving traffic to your website via social media, paid ads, emails, etc? If so, we recommend Kartra

If you don’t have a big online presence or you’re having trouble getting customers for your courses, consider Udemy as it is one of the best online course platforms with over 24 million students. They’ll market your course for you. Note, if they find a customer for you, then their cut is bigger. If you drive traffic to your course, then you get a bigger percentage… just make sure to use the correct URL to send traffic to your course or you’ll short-change yourself!
