About This Class

Are you considering launching your first online class but aren't sure where you should host your course or what website you should use? Or maybe you've already released some classes but are wondering about other options?

In this class, you'll learn about the different types of platforms and whether you should use a marketplace platform, self-host your class on your own website, or even use some combination of these options.

We'll cover how marketplaces and self-hosting your class works and the pros and cons of using each method. We'll also talk about some of the more well-known platforms so that you'll have a basic understanding of their key features.

There are a number of options available and it's important to have an understanding of the different types of platforms before you begin to make your class. This way, you can create a class that is designed for the platform you choose. 

Although there is no right or wrong platform, you may find that one feels more accessible or appealing to you – or just might be the one that you want to investigate first. 

Thanks so much and I look forward to seeing you in class! Just click "enroll" to join.
