Individuals responding are expert and appeared educated with many of the assistance concerns I asked till I got to a question handling integrations.

It’s a bit long, so I’ve had to break it up into a number of screenshots. Then it inquires to enter their account information. This includes an e-mail address and name. Then they have the alternative of clicking off the check box for educational and promotional e-mails. The order will go through whether that box it marked off or not.

I did see that if you don’t include any marketing info on your check out page, you’ll have a great deal of blank space on the right. Although you can include content to the check out page, the reviews, bullet points, and cash back warranty can not be moved. The next part of the checkout page appears like this: It likewise looks incredible. It will show in the exact same 2 column format, however my second column didn’t reach far enough down. Then they likewise have to concur to all the Regards to Usage and Privacy Policies for both Teachable and your company. Then they click’ Enroll in Course ‘to finish positioning the order.

on. White labeling just implies can you make the course appearance like it’s working on your own platform. The option to white labeling is that it appears like your course is hosted on Teachable or some other platform. There will be pages that have a Teachable.com URL in them even if you utilize your own domain name. As shown above, the register and check in pages will always show a sso.teachable.com URL that can not.
be altered. The logo can not be configured to go to your home page. That page shows all my Teachable courses.

If I’m utilizing my own domain (offered on upgraded plans), then clicking on the logo will take the user to courses.businessbolts.com.

Teachable does not have many integrations and the one’s they do use are challenging.
Unfortunately, I did not see any reference of this that made me feel a little weird (OKAY, not simply odd, but deceived). The issue is the check box is on the register page (for both complimentary or paid courses). It doesn’t work even when ConvertKit is integrated appropriately through the Teachable admin – .
Considering that it does not work everyone will be included to your ConvertKit list. It does not matter if they marked it off or not. To get this box to work you’ll have to use Zapier.

I’ve got a tutorial put together to assist you completely integrate ConvertKit and Teachable with Zapier – . I actually wish Teachable would let you personalize this box.

It would likewise be great if incorporating with ConvertKit actually worked completely right from the Teachable admin. Then you would not require to utilize Zapier and you would not have to pay an extra fee. Unfortunately, I do not believe you’ll resolve the issue by utilizing a various email marketing service. I’m unsure any of the e-mail marketing tools work appropriately with the addition of that check box, however you’ll need to offer it a try.
