Pros: - Beautiful design

- Wonderful support

- Incredibly easy to use

- Great for my conversion rates

Cons: I've sat here for 5 minutes and can't actually think of a con, imo. :)

Overall: I signed up to Coach about 5 months ago now and have NEVER looked back. I've used other solutions and online platforms before to host my courses and digital products and downloads, but I've never been fully happy with how they integrate or the interface.

Coach was a breath of fresh air from my very first convo with the Founder of Coach, when he went above and beyond to tell me all about the product and see if it fitted my needs. And even though I knew it didn't have every feature I had at the time, I was confident they'd deliver on what I needed - so I signed up there and then.

Since then Coach has consistently released new features - many that we customers have asked for and are highly anticipated (for example - they've just released their ConvertKit integration. Yay!!) and many others that have been a total surprise, but just as brilliant.

What makes Coach for me, though, is the customer service - I really feel like the Coach team care about each of us as an individual and really want to help us succeed, by making the best product they can and giving the best support I've ever come across in an online platform. I don't feel like a number or a statistic - but a real person that the team at Coach are constantly happy to help out.

On top of that, Coach is mighty beautiful to both look at (great for your audience!) and use (great for us!) - as a designer, it's important to me that I use tools that are easy to use and help me get the job done quicker. Coach helps me do that, and more. My conversion rates for my freebie opt-in on my site have gone from less than 1% to over 6.5% at last count and I've no doubt Coach has played a huge part in that. :)

Tl;Dr;

- Platform is so easy to use & launch with

- New features are being brought out all the time

- The customer support is incredible

- Design is fantastic & converts well with my audience

I recommend Coach now to everyone I know that wants to create digi products & online courses - and I'd never go anywhere else. :)

Recommendations to other buyers: If there's something you want to see from Coach, ASK THEM. They listen, they respond to the customers and pivot their roadmap based on what their customers (like me!) want to see. :)

Pros: - Design, better design of all the LMS I have tested.

- Very easy to use.

- All in one solution. It includes all you need to make a online course and to SELL your course: monetization, marketing, affiliate program...

- They are adding new features in a non stop way!

- Enjoyable user experience for my customers. Awesome interface in the student side, beatuiful and clear.

Desing.

- They have an exceptional chat customer service. If you have any problem, you can just ask them and they answer really fast. If you use their product you will feel that they work for you.

- Price. Fair price and they do not claim a percent of your sells.

- And the best Pro: I love use it!! I enjoy working and creating my courses. I feel I'm creating something my students will love.

Cons: - At the begining I thougth the missing of some functions were a Con. For example: messages between teacher and students, but actually students prefer use habitual communications tools like email, social networks, WhatsApp... So I don't see this as a misspoint now.

- Nothing else! It has everything you need to sell courses or to set up a virtual classroom. And they are adding new functionality all time!

Overall: I am using Podia as a virtual classroom for my students and I love it! And my students love it even more! It is easy to use and a lot more atractive that the usual virtual classrooms that we use in Spain: Moodle, Leandash... Make the study enjoyable it's the best you can do for your students.

Pros: Ease of learning and use. Clean interface and easy to navigate.

I can have my own URL that links to my current website. I love this option available on the smaller plan.

The transfer was made by Podia of my courses in Thinkific to my podia platform by the podia staff which saved me so much time.

I love being able to have all my digital products and courses in the one place. And subscriptions can be included when I have them up and running.

I just love this platform and would recommend it to anyone both as an online course creator starting up or established.

Cons: They don't have quizzes yet but I've been told this is coming.

The support is outstanding but if you live in Australia you have to wait until the next day or communicate during the night local WA time.

I can't think of anything else.

Overall: Courses, digital products and subscriptions all on the one site.

Ease of use is a time saver.

Support is exceptional

Pros: The simplicity for doing action what ever it is in podia.

Almost no need of help, it is no intuitive that i have needed a little time to stop making simple things become complicate like before using podia.

Cons: Nothing for the moment.

The first days, i was asking question like "why can't we do this or that with podia? It was things i was able to do before with the other but very complicate system...

But then, i realize that podia helps me simplify my job and that i work well without all the other options i had in the past.

Overall: It helps me spending less time of the technical aspect when publishing a product.

I start to have more time to create instead of spending my time solving problem with funnels bugs agoin and again.

It remind me my experience the day i decided to move from windows to Mac...

Difficult decision but since then (in 2013)... it is just a dream to use all my Mac and Apple system.

I have the same feeling now using podia.

Pros: A simple way to make great looking online courses behind a paywall. Also, allows code injection on landing page, which is useful.

Cons: 1) the price adds up, though, in fairness, it's cheaper than its biggest competitor. 2) you can make just one landing page per product
