Thinkific Set-Up Guide

Thinkific is a learning management system software (LMS) that allows you to create and sell your own online courses and digital products to the world.

It is a highly functional online course platform that you own in the same way you would own your own website, and even with very limited tech skills, you can get up and running quickly and easily using the Thinkific learning management software.

In this course, Certified Thinkific Expert and Approved Thinkific Agency Partner, Sarah Cordiner, will show you step by step how to set up your Thinkific account from brand new, right the way through to being open for students.

There are only 28 Certified Thinkific Experts in the world, and as a qualified educator and teacher trainer too, you can be assured that everything Sarah covers in this Thinkific Set-Up Course is up to date and based on best practice.

If you are ready to start creating and selling online courses using the Thinkific platform, this course gives you easy-to-follow screen demonstrations that walk you through every step so that you get your Thinkific site set up and running fast.

We will cover everything from opening your account, branding and designing your site, adding courses and learning content, connecting your payment gateways and integrations, creating your landing pages and much more.

There is also a 30-day free trial link to Thinkific available inside this course, which will give you free access to the Thinkific Pro+Growth Plan, so that you can test and set up all of the advanced features demonstrated in this course. 

This course also includes a copy of my 'Thinkfic Set-Up Guide' and 'Thinkific Set-Up Checklist'

What This Course Does NOT Do:

Please note that this course does not teach you how to create your course content, or market your course. It is just about setting up your Thinkific site and how to use the Thinkific site features.
