HERE’S THE STORY:
Enter David Siteman Garland
The marketing expert cat
I’ve been creating and selling online courses for years and have thousands of students all over the world who have done the same via my Create Awesome Online Courses program.
The question I get about 39485828.8 times a day (give or take 1.8) is:
David, I want to use WordPress to host my online course…do I need to hire a developer? What theme do you recommend? Do you have any recommendations to create a course website that looks like yours? I want it to look great and be easy to use!
When it comes to solutions for my customers and their course websites (you know where your course “lives” online), the best option by far is WordPress. It is what I personally use and so do my very best and most successful students.
But, until now there has been a problem with WordPress [insert dramatic music here].
The problem is it takes hiring a developer and designer (and sometimes a psychiatrist) to get your WordPress site created for you to house your online course (ain’t nobody got time for that!) OR you have to use one of the sucky do-it-yourself options out there (and trust me we looked at them all).
Until now, hiring a developer & designer has been especially essential for WordPress if you want your site to work properly (for you and your customers) and look freaking awesome.
And that can get expensive in a hurry and also cause all kinds of delays (i.e. “Sure, we can make that for you! We will have it over to you in 12 weeks!” D’oh).
So, what else could you do besides hiring a developer and designer?
Well… you could go out and search for a WordPress theme and try to figure it out yourself.
What ends up happening?
You either spend an arm and a leg on a designer and developer…and lord knows how long that will take to get done (and what about future changes? You will have to pay for those as well)
You hack together your own WordPress theme, try integrating all kinds of stuff, try to make it look non-crappy…and then get frustrated and give up.
Well, good news my friend. Finally, a solution is here.
THE WordPress solution for your online course
A little secret. I’m by no means a techie. I have no idea how to code anything except my alarm code.
Enter Brad Hogan
The nerdy tech cat
So, in the past to get something like Course Nip for my online courses, I had to hire Brad.
Brad has been my web developer for over five years. His work is epic and it isn’t cheap.
I came up with the wild idea, what if I kidnapped my developer Brad for you?
And what if Brad could create something amazing for you that takes away all those annoying WordPress frustrations and is super affordable (as opposed to hiring him for at least $5,000 or more)?
Meaning… something that…
LOOKS BEAUTIFUL: A responsive design that looks great and allows you to add their own copy, photography and colors to give it a personalized feel without needing to know anything about web design or development. Designed specifically for people who want an online course, which includes a very customizable sales page and a custom design for modules and bonuses.
YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF & INTEGRATE IT EASILY: A step-by-step guide (complete with videos) that walk you through EXACTLY how to use the responsive theme, add your sales page and course modules/bonuses, and integrate with a membership plugin so you can accept payments and manage your customers.
EASY TO NAVIGATE FOR YOU AND YOUR CUSTOMERS: Put away the compass and no need to hire the ghost of Magellan. Course Nip is designed to make it super simple for customers to access course material. There’s nothing more frustrating than buying a digital product or online course and not being able to access the material you purchased. We’ve designed this so the back-end is super easy to add modules/bonuses to (easy for you) and the front-end is just as simple for users to navigate(your customers).
And that’s exactly what Course Nip is. Think of it as an amazing, customizable course website in a box for WordPress.
With just the right amount of options, our custom responsive theme was designed to make your course unique, interesting and easy to navigate, but most importantly it’s easy to understand and manage. We like to think of it as everything you need and nothing you don’t.
We know, sometimes it’s just much easier to learn and follow along with a video compared to text. So, we’ve created videos that go along with each section in the step-by-step guide. Just follow along and your course site will be ready to roll before you know it!
We aren’t just selling a download and saying good luck. We will be adding features to Course Nip to keep it up-to-date with the ideas and trends that matter in the online course world. If we add new page templates, improve the design to make it even more sexy and conversion-focused, add more options for customizing your content, etc., you will get access to all of those updates.
We have a no man (or woman) left behind policy and we won’t leave you hangin’!
We’ll show you exactly how a professional designer picks colors so you can put together an amazing color palette that makes your course pop!
We said we wanted to show you how to keep things simple. Well, we were serious! No need to spend tons of time and money on a logo design when you simply want to get your course to market! We’ll show you how to create a great looking logo.
In this bonus, we’ll walk you through how to install LeadPages on your WordPress site and turn your homepage into a LeadPages opt-in page.
We like to keep things simple and therefore we recommend keeping the plugins on your site to a very small, but effective few. We’ll share those few recommendations with you and also show you how to integrate the plugins with your course.
If you have an online course or are planning on creating an online course and you want an elegant, simple solution on WordPress for your course website, then this, my friend, is for you.
If you don’t want to create an online course... um why are you here? Kidding, kidding. But seriously...
You are ready to follow along with our guide and videos and get your course up.
You have someone you want to hand this off to and they can set it up for you (it’s so easy to setup it can be anyone from a VA or that techie cousin you give little projects to)
You don’t want to wait weeks and weeks for a developer to get back to you. You want to get going on this NOW.
You are just down right awesome and you have some seriously useful knowledge to share with peeps. Oh, and you know an online course is the best way to drop that knowledge to the masses!
If you wanted to hire Brad to create a custom WordPress course website just like Course Nip, it would cost AT LEAST $5,000 and his schedule is so crazy who knows how long it would take (and he rarely accepts new clients!).
We wanted to make this no-brainer affordable for you because we love you like… um… well, we love you.
In all seriousness, we wanted to make this affordable because we didn’t want an amazing WordPress course site to be limited just to people who could afford paying big ticket prices! We’ve created two very affordable plans – a monthly and yearly payment option.
The yearly deal is absolutely awesome and our best deal and you can also go monthly if you want to save on cash flow. Think of how many months and/or years it would take to equal what you’d pay a pro to do this! Ridiculous.
And through this special offer (which expires this Friday, January 29th at 11:59 PM Pacific) you can save over $800 (What? Nice!). If you purchase a Course Cats annual plan ($467)…you get a full year of Deadline Funnel at the Professional Level (normally $804 a year or $67 per month) FREE. After your free year is up you can continue at a special deep discount rate of $499 per year because you are a Course Cats customer.
Pretty freakin’ sweet.
Deadline Funnel is the leading sales acceleration software that adds genuine urgency to your promotions (countdown timers, etc.). Deadline Funnel tracks prospects across multiple devices and multiple locations so that your evergreen deadlines are genuine (and integrates with pretty much everything including Course Cats…duh).
Now you can add urgency & scarcity to your promotions by using Deadline Funnel to add expiring countdown timers to your beautiful sales pages (created with Course Cats of course) for your course.
ZERO RISK. 30 Day Guarantee!
We want to make launching your online course in WordPress as easy and awesome as possible. And we stand behind Course Nip. Test drive it for 30 days and if you aren’t happy, we will refund 100% of your money. We know you will love it, but, yes, that’s a 30 day money back guarantee.
Ab-so-lutely NOT. With the monthly option, you pay month-to-month. Same goes for the yearly – pay per year. No long term contracts.
Yes! We know you will love Course Nip, but if for some reason you are unhappy we have a 30 day money back guarantee.
Great question my friend! It’s almost like you are writing the FAQs. Here is what you will need (and don’t worry we go over all of this inside of the Course Nip guide and tutorials):
Ah good question! If you want all of your courses on the same domain, then YES, you can do that with 1 Course Cats license!
By popular request, some people wanted to use their Course Cats license on more than one domain. If that’s what you’re looking for, we now have options for a one-site license, 3-site license and 5-site license. Contact us at email@example.com to inquire more and get pricing!
You do! You own all your stuff. Your videos, your PDFs, all your content… and your little dog too.
We’d first recommend taking a look at our help docs to see if your question has already been answered. BUT if not, we have epic support ready for you! Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you shortly!
We are just cool like that.
Developing an online course can be overwhelming. I spent a month trying to figure out how to build my course site, and that was with a designer! Course Cats helps you build your site in an easy to follow step-by-step fashion that gives you total control. Seriously, if you have the content you'll have a course in 7 days. Brad and David hit a home run. Thanks guys, you rock.
Course Cats is an awesome solution for easy website building for your online courses. I have tried several different platforms and this was the simplest, most beautiful and gave me the best results. The presentation made it better for my customers too. The Course Cats structure saved me at least a week of my website buildout because all of the most time consuming stuff such as the sales page structure is thought out for you. All you have to do is drop in your content!
For someone like me who is super picky about my content presentation, I absolutely loved the way my course website turned out! I know my customers are going to love it too. I can't wait to create my next course!
Course Cats was great because it's literally plug and play. You download the theme watch the step by step videos and voila... you've got a course site. Which means no sleepless nights or tech headaches as you try to get your course site done (hallelujah!). I was able to get my course up and running in one weekend. Made my first sale that next Monday so when I say it's easy... it's freak'n easy.
