The best online course platforms for small business owners

Thinking of creating your own online training course? 

Dang look at you go you business professional. Online courses are a great source of passive income and have a sizeable return on investment — if you make them right. There are truckloads of course creation platforms  that can help you make the course of your dreams, but let’s be real. There’s too many. 

Idk about you but when we search for an online web design course on Google the number of search results that pops up gives us a panic attack. So, here’s a list of our top online course platforms for small business owners, so you can keep your sanity. 

Kajabi: The All-in-One Platform for Course Creation

Kajabi is on the list specifically for its all-in-one capabilities. It’s designed to help you create and sell your courses online, with features like customizable themes, quizzes, surveys, and assessments. It also includes powerful marketing tools, like email campaigns and automation, to help you reach your audience and sell your courses.

With Kajabi, you can create and manage your courses, membership sites, and marketing all in one place. We recommend it for small business owners who want to streamline their course creation and marketing efforts without having to use multiple tools.

LearnDash: The WordPress Plugin for Course Creation

LearnDash is literally a WordPress plugin that allows you to make and sell courses on your website. It’s super easy to use and really handy, especially if you’ve already made a website with them. So what’s included? Well, it comes with the freedom to make courses, quizzes, assignments and more. 

Probably our favourite thing about it though is its analytical capabilities. With LearnDash, you can track course progression and user statistics, helping you see where your course needs fine-tuning.

Thinkific: The User-Friendly Platform for Course Creation

Thinkific is a user-friendly platform that makes it easy for small business owners to create and sell courses online. It offers a drag-and-drop course builder, which means you don’t need any technical skills to create a professional-looking course.

With Thinkific, you can create and manage your courses, quizzes, surveys, and certificates. The platform also includes powerful marketing tools, like email campaigns and automation, to help you reach your audience and sell your courses.

The Info. Simplified.

Basically, if you’re a small business owner looking to make a course that kick ass, then you’ve got to choose your course creation software carefully. We recommend Kajabi for those of you wanting an all-in-one platform, LearnDash for those using WordPress already and Thinkific for those whose main focus is on usability. Look though, whatever you choose, just make sure that you actually put enough time and effort into making it a quality piece of work. We don’t want to stumble upon your course and have an aneurysm trying to navigate past page 3.
