Sometimes, you just want to get your hands dirty! In that case you may want to host, market and deliver your digital products such as an online course or membership through one of the many Wordpress LMS plugins available.
This means that you’ll build a more custom platform that you fully own on your Wordpress site! This is a great option if you want something very specific and the out-of-the-box solution just won’t do.
The pros: Flexibility and customization. Having full access to the range of plugins and functionality of Wordpress, you now have no limit in what can be done within your courses and funnel. You also truly own the platform as it’s hosted on servers you’re paying for and on a platform you fully control.
The cons: non-techy be aware, this solution is not the easiest to pull off. Yes these platforms have made great progress to simplify the setup of your own self-hosted online course platform, but there’s a lot do to before having something operational. This also means you’ll probably have to use external tools like an email provider to have everything you need to market your products.
