This is not a long term solution for most people, but it’s a way to get your course up and running so that you can start generating revenue and getting social proof from your students - both of which will go a long way to help you make more money so you can invest in more streamlined and powerful tools down the road.


Here’s some tough love: a lot of you have dreams of online course creation but you get so fricken caught up in the tech details about what platform to use that you never get going. So here’s my challenge to you today: shit or get off the pot.


I’m going to give you a few examples of tech stacks that you can use to create an online course that will either cost you zero dollars a month, or will not add to your monthly expenses because they’re tools you’re already using.


Here are the two free “course hosts” you could use:

  • Facebook Groups
  • Google Drive
