how is that possible?
HERE’S THE STORY:
Since 2015, thousands of course creators around the world have use Course Cats to create their (awesome) course websites. And now the game is being changed again with the new EVEN BETTER Course Cats 2.0!
Why did we create Course Cats? Course Cats was born out of, shall we say… a bit of frustration (that’s a nice way of putting it, hah!).
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…but over and over again the same issue has come up:
How can you create a course website that…
After years of research, testing and trying everything under the sun, the hunt for the perfect course website seemed impossible (maybe we would find Bigfoot first?).
Now here is the thing… what I know from personally creating & selling over 6 million dollars in online courses and teaching well over 3,000 people in over a hundred countries sell online courses is that the best solution for your online course website is WordPress. It’s what I use and so do my most successful students.
Why? With WordPress you’re in control and it is highly customizable. It’s your business and you should be in full control, right?
Plus you shouldn’t have to pay transaction fees (keep every dollar you earn from your course) or pay more as you get more customers (ridiculous) and with WordPress you can easily integrate with other software you are using (i.e. your autoresponder).
Before Course Cats… what existed were three not-so-great options:
1. 3rd party “course platforms”
2. Cheap-O WordPress templates
3. Designer & developer create a course website for you from scratch
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.
You go for a 3rd party course platform but end up paying through the roof (and have zero flexibility).
Well, fret no more my friend because Course Cats is here (with thousands of happy course kittens all over the world who have created amazing course websites with Course Cats on every topic under the sun from bathroom repair to baby sleep training).
And now with our 2.0 version, Course Cats is EVEN BETTER. Your entire course website + sales pages, landing pages and oh so much more.
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 Cats 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 Cats 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 Cats is. Think of it as an amazing, customizable course website in a box for WordPress.
… and OH, so much more!
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’ve created both a text-version and videos for every step along the way so you don’t be left wondering “uh, how the heck do I make my site look amazing AND launch my course?”. We’ll show you how to…
We know, sometimes it’s just much easier to learn and follow along with a video compared to text. Because we love you, we’ve made a video for just about every lesson in our guide that takes you through each amazing feature step-by-step!
We aren’t just selling a download and saying good luck. We will be adding features to Course Cats 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, woman, cat (or dog) left behind policy and we won’t leave you hangin’!
“Thanks so much for the CourseCats 2.0 upgrade! One of the features I’m most excited about is the ability to add mini-courses, which I did in about 24 hours and got MY FIRST SALE almost immediately after sharing it with my email list!”
MARIAH SECREST-COMER, Happy Cat
whoa, there’s more?
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.
Cover images are the little book-like covers that appear next to opt-ins and they’re great because they help people visualize something tangible in exchange for giving you their email address!
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.
NO! We don’t believe we should get a big cut, small cut, or ANY cut of your sales as you get more successful, so we stick to straightforward, predictable membership pricing with zero hidden fees. Some online software companies are charging HUNDREDS of dollars in transactions fees per month. Insane.
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.
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 step-by-step guide):
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!
If you’d like to use the theme on different domains, then we can provide a coupon link for you to get 20% off your additional licenses, just shoot us an email and let us know how many licenses you’re looking to purchase!
Course Cats and Conversion Cats are two separate WordPress themes, intended for different purposes. Course Cats was created to house your online course website (sales pages, lessons, bonuses, other protected content only paying people should be able to see, etc). Conversion Cats was created to house your main website (blog, articles, podcast, home page, about page, opt-ins, landing pages, etc).
Course Cats 2.0 now includes a landing page template that can be used for opt-in pages and even a video series, but your main site with your free content (e.g. blog, articles, podcast, etc.) should use Conversion Cats.
You do! You own all your stuff. Your videos, your PDFs, all your content… and your little dog too.
We are just cool like that.
If you wanted to hire Brad to create a custom WordPress course website just like Course Cats, 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!).
And that doesn’t include if you wanted any additional changes down the road, landing pages or anything like that. Bottom line is it can add up quickly (and take a long time).
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!
So we are doing something pretty freakin’ cool. Instead of charging an arm and leg (and transaction fees) like others out there… we are going to GIVE YOU Course Cats for 14 days 100% free.
Yup. That’s right. Not a typo. 14 days free. ALL the features. You can create your entire course website, free video series, opt in pages, sales pages, everything… free.
And then after 14 days you will will have two affordable plans – a quarterly (every 3 months) or a yearly payment option (you choose which one you want when you sign up for your free trial…you can always change it later if you decide to switch).
You will get unlimited support and you can easily change your site around anytime with a few clicks of the button (no need to pay a designer or developer… boom).
Now you might be thinking to yourself….why the heck would we GIVE YOU Course Cats for two weeks… free? Have we lost our minds? Maybe a little but here is the thing, we know Course Cats is the best software out there for your course website and we want to prove it to you. And we know if you love it you will be addicted like a cat on catnip (in a good way), eliminate that techno-stress and have an incredibly amazing course website and will become a loyal course kitten (Course Cats customer). And if not, we don’t deserve your money. Plain and simple.
Think of how many months and/or years it would take to equal what you’d pay a pro to do this! Ridiculous. Zero-risk 14 day free trial and then you pay quarterly or yearly (no long term contracts cancel anytime).
Select your plan below and you will be off to the races.
ZERO RISK. Try it FREE for 14 Days!
We want to make launching your online course as easy and awesome as possible. And we stand behind Course Cats and know that if you try it you will love it (and will be hooked like a cat on catnip… in a good way).
