How to find the best course platform for you and your business? There are SO many different options and the choice really can be quite overwhelming… So here are my 2 cents about it!
Within my free Course Platform Comparison Guide, I have compared only 4 of the most popular course platforms although I get asked daily about plenty of other options.
Why so? Are the rest of them really that bad or not even worth a look?
The truth is, there are TONS of amazing platforms and I’m sure you could keep digging. But what for? At the end of the day, 90% of them offer all the same features just in a different “wrapping”.
However, it all comes back to the question: how to find the best course platform?
How to find the best course platform?
For you to choose the best platform, you don’t need to know them all.
What you really need is to find the answer to the following question:
What is non-negotiable for you?
See, all of these platforms have their pros and cons.
For you to understand which platform will be the best fit, you need to know, what truly matters to you.
👉 Is it the price? Does it have to be affordable and budget-friendly?
👉 Or is it design? Does it have to look pretty and easy to design?
👉 Maybe none of that matters and you just need ease of use?
Once you know this, you can look at the offered options, may there be 4 or 10 and you will be able to spot way more easily which platform can be your perfect fit!
See, just to give you a bit of an idea, some of the most popular feature overview would look like this:
Teachable is great for its user interface and overall offer. They are very budget-friendly and also offer a 1:1 Coaching platform. Besides that, their Sales page builder is very easy to use. However, comparing to other more customizable platforms, the design features are quite limited.
Thinkific is very similar to Teachable but it’s free to get started with! This means that you can fully set up and work on a course without paying a dime. However, their user interface is a bit more complicated and the designs are not as easy to work with as Teachable’s…
Then we have Podia! Podia comes in handy for those who want to sell other products besides courses as well, for example, e-books or templates. However, they have the saddest offer when it comes to sales page design/customization.
Kajabi is one of the most powerful players as it offers an all-in-one business platform where you can not only sell your products but also set up your website, have your email marketing sequences and well beyond. However, it costs starting from $119/month, compared to the other platform’s $39/month…

Give yourself a chance to explore
Finding the best fit course platform can be challenging if all you do is read reviews. There are so many different “behind-the-scenes” features that can either excite you or quite the opposite – make you dislike the platform… It’s impossible to know this without trying for yourself!
At the end of the day, give a try to different platforms and see which one feels the best! Give yourself some time to explore to find the best fit.
Most of the platforms offer a 2-week free trial or a 30-day money-back guarantee. You have nothing but a bit of time to lose!
As there is no one perfect fit available, you have to explore your options.
Why Teachable is my favorite?
I’ve always talked about Teachable as my favorite. I’ve been on the platform for 5+ years and always keep returning.
It’s very easy to use, it has a nice user interface and I get all the must-have features I need without the clutter of too many options.
If you want to create a course with ease and not spend too much time on it, definitely consider using Teachable as your platform!
