finally!

EVERYTHING YOU NEED
TO create your own AMAZING course website

Without needing a web developer, a graphic designer, a psychiatrist and a team of 1,000 nerds!

how is that possible?

WELL, WE’VE KIDNAPPED A PRO DESIGNER & DEVELOPER, THAT’S HOW!

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…

  1. Is super easy to setup without needing a web developer, a graphic designer, a psychiatrist and a team of 1,000 nerds
  2. Looks freakin’ amazing like you hired a 6-figure branding and design expert
  3. Easy to use (and navigate…no compass needed) for your customers (and yourself)
  4. Integrates with pretty much everything
  5. Can be created from scratch and up quickly without sacrificing 1-4

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”

  • Often super expensive (and the more customers you have the more expensive it gets…yikes)
  • Inflexible
  • Transaction fees? Um no thanks!
  • Poor design
  • Lack of integrations (hard to work with other pieces of software you are using)

2. Cheap-O WordPress templates

  • Many require you to be an expert designer or programmer otherwise the site will look absolutely terrible (and awful instructions).
  • Many are impossible to integrate things like your payment processor and ways to protect your content.
  • Most are absolutely brutal to navigate. Meaning, they aren’t user friendly…and, quite frankly look terrible.

3. Designer & developer create a course website for you from scratch

  • Huge fees well over $5,000+ (and well-earned as it takes work but huge)
  • Long lead times…weeks, months, many months. Ain’t nobody have time for that (and lord forbid you want to change anything…the waiting continues!)
  • Ongoing fees (want to change the color to purple? Add a page? Bling bling.)

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).

or…

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.

or…
You go for a 3rd party course platform but end up paying through the roof (and have zero flexibility).

YIKES!

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.

 

INTRODUCING COURSE CATS
THE WordPress solution for your online course

coursecats.com
Create an amazing looking online course (or courses, create as many as you want). You can also create landing pages that connect easily to your opt-in lists or simply use landing pages for video series pages leading up to your big online course sale!

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?

cat-napping

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.

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH IT:
Create an amazing looking online course website on WordPress, which includes fun stuff like…

  • Create sales pages (hey like this one!): Course Cats sales pages are high-converting, easily-customizable and will not only look “on brand” but bring in those happy customers.
  • Create as many courses as you’d like, whenever you’d like.  Each course can include lessons, workshops and bonuses (oh, and you can call them whatever you want!).  Add videos, as much text as you’d like and downloads, such as PDFs, PowerPoints, whatever you want!  We provide the amazing design, you simply add as much content as you want!
  • Create a landing page to easily list all of your available courses to make it SUPER easy for people to buy the courses they want to buy.
  • Create custom landing pages!  Link to an opt-in and create pages such as a Waitlist page or a Coming Soon page to grow your email list while you fine tune your course content!
  • Create a video series!  Use our new landing page template to create a video series!  Have no fear, we’ll show you how to do it all in our step-by-step guide!
  • Follow our step-by-step guide (with videos!) to go from nothing to a fully functional, amazing looking online course.
  • Protect your content and get paid!  We’ll cover the absolute best membership plugins in the business that will allow you to protect your content for paying customers only!
  • Keep your money!  NO TRANSACTION FEES.  We do not take a percentage of your profits like most of the online course solutions out there.  We believe that if you’ve earned it, you should keep it!

… and OH, so much more!

what’s included?

HERE’S WHAT YOU GET!

BOTTOM LINE

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…

FAQS

Does Course Cats charge transaction fees like most of the other online course software out there?

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.

Do I have to sign a long contract or anything?

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.

What other tech will I need to go with Course Cats?

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):

  • Domain + web hosting + WordPress (we have recommendations for hosting in our guide if you need some help)
  • Payment processor (e.g. Stripe, PayPal, etc.)
  • SSL certificate (so you can safely accept credit card payments on your site – we cover this in our guide, not to worry)
  • Content protection (this is done through a WordPress membership plugin – which we cover the best options on the market and how to integrate with them in our step-by-step guide!)
How many sites can I use the Course Cats theme on?

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!

What's the difference between Course Cats and Conversion Cats?

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.

Who owns my content?

You do! You own all your stuff. Your videos, your PDFs, all your content… and your little dog too.

I have a question, who should I contact?

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 support@coursecats.com and we’ll get back to you shortly!

How did you guys make something so awesome?

We are just cool like that.

PRICING & WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

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).

Cancel anytime.

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.

14 DAYS 100% free boom!

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). Test drive it for 14 days (and yes, you get every single feature… from your course website to landing pages), and if you aren’t happy, simply cancel anytime in the first 14 days.
