You can email them and they typically email back within a day. Individuals responding are expert and seemed well-informed with many of the assistance concerns I asked till I got to a question dealing with combinations. They were frequently a bit clueless when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t assist with what I needed. With the more standard questions, I didn’t have to go back and forth with them several times to get the problem figured out – . They typically addressed the question to the degree I required the first time. There is no customer assistance contact number and no live chat for customers of Teachable.

Zapier can include an additional regular monthly cost and it’s sort of technical. I had some trouble getting ConvertKit totally integrated with Teachable and outline that in this Zapier tutorial.

This is a really great function because your learners will not simply be struck with a video or a PDF file, you can present them to it with some text before they see it. It’s obvious they put a great deal of time into developing the streamlined and professional appearance.
Another feature I like is the ability to set-up a blog site right within your Teachable admin. I didn’t utilize this feature for my site( given that I currently run WordPress on it ), however if you’re brand new to an online business I can see how this would be very helpful. Once again, I do recommend registering a domain rather of using the Teachable subdomain.

It’s a bit long, so I have actually had to break it up into a number of screenshots. Then it asks them to enter their account info. This consists of an e-mail address and name.

If you get your course up and running with the.
complimentary plan, then Teachable will take a 10% deal charge (). The next plan over is their Standard plan. On this strategy, Teachable will take a 5% transaction cost. If you sign-up for their most popular plan, which is the Professional plan, Teachable will not take a transaction fee when you integrate with PayPal or Stripe. According to the Teachable website, PayPal or Stripe will take 2.9 %+ 30 cents for each transaction. This is a quite common transaction cost for processing credit cards.

The alternative 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. As shown above, the indication up and check in pages will constantly show a sso.teachable.com URL that can not.
be changed. The logo can not be configured to go to your web page. That page shows all my Teachable courses. As an example, if I were using a Teachable subdomain, clicking on the logo above or any Teachable produced page will take the user to businessbolts.teachable.com. If I’m utilizing my own domain (available on updated strategies), then clicking the logo will take the user to courses.businessbolts.com. Although the Teachable course area looks excellent, you can’t customize the majority of it, so your course will appear like a Teachable course to those who have actually used this platform prior to. Your sales pages will likewise look like they’re running Teachable to those who can spot it. In reality, this actually may not be much of an issue.

You’ll also require to be going to spend a long time on it and/or possibly hire a web designer competent with HTML/CSS. Teachable does not have numerous combinations and the one’s they do offer are challenging.
Sadly, I did not see any mention of this which made me feel a little odd (OK, not just unusual, but misled). The problem is the check box is on the sign up page (for both free or paid courses). It does not work even when ConvertKit is integrated effectively through the Teachable admin – .
Because it does not work everybody 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 utilize Zapier.

It would also be terrific if integrating with ConvertKit in fact worked completely right from the Teachable admin. Then you wouldn’t require to utilize Zapier and you wouldn’t need to pay an additional charge. Regrettably, I don’t believe you’ll resolve the problem by using a various email marketing service. I’m unsure any of the email marketing tools work properly with the addition of that check box, but you’ll need to give it a shot.

If you require to use more extensive tests, assessments, or tests you may have the ability to embed code from a test developed with other software into your Teachable page.
