When you’re about to launch your new offer (or heck, even new branch of your business), you will naturally wonder about the best ways to do things. And this is especially true if your new thing is an online course or membership offer. And personally, I’ve been running my own courses and memberships for the past few years and have made multiple six-figures from my efforts there. I’ve tried out many course platforms and I’ve settled on what I personally believe to be the best. So here in this article, you’ll learn my feelings about Teachable vs Thinkific.
Personally, I’ve been using Thinkific as my primary course platform (that I also tested out as a membership platform briefly), but I have some gripes about the user interface (UI) as well as the user experience (UX).
But don’t get me wrong, Thinkific is still a really strong platform. They have great customer service, and students inside of my own courses have gotten great results. And that’s really the only thing that matters here since you’re a course creator. But at scale, I wanted to make things BETTER. To really focus on the user experience. And to me, that’s my primary gripe about Thinkific.
That’s just my two cents though – but also based on the feedback that I’ve received from hundreds of real students. And that’s also my opinion based on my own personal experience as a student of other people’s courses hosted via Teachable vs Thinkific.
It matters what your students think of the platform, what they are experiencing, and what they want. Period.
As a course creator, your students pay your bills, right?
Well if that’s the case, it is your utmost responsibility to not just create content that gets them results but to have a course platform that makes that process as easy as possible. And that’s exactly why I wanted to write about Teachable vs Thinkific.
And yes, I could be writing about Podia, MemberPress, LearnDash, Kajabi, and the seemingly hundreds of other course and membership platforms available on today’s marketplace… but why would I?
Why would I confuse you with just regurgitating all the different options you have?
I want you walking away with absolute clarity if you should pick between these two platforms – Teachable vs Thinkific.
Thinkific Cons (my two cents):
Overall and final thoughts:
I don’t just want to write a thousand more words giving you all the details about everything. That’s what their company’s websites can really do – but bottom line… my choice is Teachable.
So, if you are thinking about creating a course of your own or you’re thinking about moving course platforms, Teachable is the one I recommend for you. And after reading countless books over the subjects, learned from countless other educators and business coaches – there’s a lot of different opinions. The bottom line… use one and market it well. All the main course platform options can technically work for you. Don’t let indecision work against you and delay your success.
I hope that honest comparison between Teachable vs Thinkific was helpful to you. And as always, let me know if you have any questions about my experience with either. I’m always here to help.
