Your Course doesn’t have to be a “course” an interview with Karen Hillen Course Creators Circle Member
One of the most common pitfalls in course creation is getting stuck with your course format. In an interview with Karen Hillen, we talk about how your course doesn’t have to be a course.
Karen Hillen is a HR advisor. Karen and I’ve known each other for many many years, and I’m excited to say that she’s finally teaching online and she’s delivering her programs by her Thinkific school, and the Course Creators Circle has been lucky to be part of that journey.Read More

When it comes to courses, having a pre-order option is a great way to start marketing and selling your course before you are 100% ready to go. It gives you the chance to get some sales under your belt while still working away.
Thinkific has an option for you to create a pre-order landing page, for your course that looks exactly the same as all your other landing pages, but you get the added benefit of a countdown timer to help build urgency. This works really well if you are having a special pre-launch price before reverting back to your normal pricing.Read More
Are you using Thinkific for the first time? Perhaps you’ve come from another platform or this is your first time using any kind of course creation software. You may be looking at the backend of the Thinkific platform wondering just where to start.
If this is you, we have a walkthrough available on how to set up your Thinkific school that you may like to follow along on. There’s plenty of information as well as hints and tips on how to best set up your platform.Read More
Recording day – it looks different for everyone but the basic preparation going on behind the scenes is usually pretty similar. Your first couple of times prepping for a recording day may not look great – you may forget things you need, spend hours re-recording due to messing up your lines, or simply take longer than you thought because you weren’t as confident once you got in front of the camera.
We took the time to put together a behind the scenes video on what a recording day looks like, and as you can see in our edited version – you wear a lot of different hats and switch from one task to the other.Read More
We know that one of the most important functions of having a successful business is having an audience to sell our products or services to. Without an audience, you might stumble along until someone finds you, but this isn’t really going to bring you the clients you are looking for or need to keep your business going.
The key to marketing is an audience. The only way to get an audience is through marketing. So we can see how marketing is essential. But what kind of marketing should you be utilising when it comes to finding an audience for your course or workshop?Read More
When creating and selling a course, there may be times you wish to offer a discount to new students or a specific offer to existing or past students. This may be a coupon for a newsletter offer, a discount code that you use when presenting a workshop, or even as a gift to a particular individual or group of individuals.
Creating a coupon is a great way to discount your course without needing to create a whole new pricing structure; and it can be done in two ways.
When planning a new course or updating an older course, you may realise that you have a lesson in one course that relates to another. Alternatively, you may be looking to combine two courses into one, and rather than duplicating the course and resetting everything up, it is relatively easy to copy a course and insert it into another.Read More
There may come a time when you want to copy or duplicate a course – perhaps you have a special enrolment promotion, setting up a private course for a particular client or you are updating your course with a new offering or new information.
With Thinkific you don’t need to create the course from scratch again, it is really easy to duplicate it with a few clicks of a button. Once the duplication has been done, you can then get to work on putting in new content or making the course available privately.Read More
When creating a new course, the last thing you want to see and hear is that your buttons aren’t working. How are students meant to purchase your course if they can’t check out?
It’s a common occurrence and it generally comes down to a small step being missed in setting up your course.
One of the first things you need to do when setting up your Thinkific courses is to set your currency. Like most programs, Thinkific will be automatically set to USD, but if you are outside the US, you may want to charge in your own currency, whether that be Australia Dollars, Euros, New Zealand Dollars etc.Read More
Sure, the Thinkific landing pages are a great way to market your course content, but there may...Read More
