• Thinkific makes it super easy for people to create and build and launch and sell their own online courses to help grow their businesses.
• The more that you educate people about your business the more likely they are to talk about you. You turn them into brand advocates.
• The biggest advice I have is to get going. Get something out there and start learning from the people you’re sharing it with.
• I think the concept of two to three hours of education time.

Doug:Welcome back listeners to another episode of Real Marketing Real Fast. Today we’re going to talk about a little different topic. We’re going to talk about using your expertise, how can you leverage your expertise to generate sales in maybe an automated fashion. Today we’re going to talk about membership sites and selling online courses and who better to have on my show as a guest than Greg Smith. Greg is the founder of a company in my town in Vancouver called Thinkific. Now Thinkific has an online course platform that makes it easy for you and I to build our own online courses under our site and our brand.

Greg and his team at Thinkific power courses for about 27,000-ish businesses and have educated about 12 million students and has sold over $100 million in courses.

Eventually, that turned into people reaching out to me looking to create their own online courses in a variety of subjects. We really couldn’t help them initially and so that kind of led to us creating Thinkific as a solution to make it super easy for other people to create and build and launch and sell their own online courses to help grow their businesses.
