Top Tools to Create and Sell Content

Are you looking for ways to make the process of creating and selling your content a lot less overwhelming?

I don’t blame you.

I mean, when you think about the many phases that you need to go through to develop and sell your content, it makes even the best of us cringe due to how massive the scope of the project is.

Because you’re reading this guide, I’m guessing that you’re about to face the gargantuan of a task of having to create and sell content. Am I right?

Well, before you get your hands down and dirty, allow me to share with you the six tools that you can use to make the process of creating and selling your content a lot less paralyzing.

Let’s hop right in.

1. Newkajabi.com

Kajabi makes it dead easy for you to turn your knowledge and content into products that you can sell. If you want to turn your passion into profit, then you need to give Kajabi a shot.

Despite the platform’s plethora of powerful features, you’ll find that it isn’t the slightest bit overwhelming. On the contrary, it is intuitive and very easy to use.

The platform allows you to create online courses, websites, sales funnels, collect payments, view reports, and nurture a community (among other things).

What makes the platform even more amazing is its ability to help the business owners market their content. Considering how noisy the internet has become — with more than 2 million blog posts published daily — marketing your content has become a necessity. Relying on publishing quality content alone is no longer going to cut it.

These are some of Kajabi’s marketing features:
It helps you with email marketing.
You can create landing pages.
You can create custom forms so you can capture leads.
It has email analytics.
Etc.

Of course, I’m just scratching the surface with the points that I mentioned above. You can check out their website to learn more about how you can use their platform to create and sell your content.

2. Teachable.com

Overview:

Pricing packages:
Free – $0 per month
Basic – $39 per month
Professional – $99 per month
High Volume – $299 per month
Product themes: Yes
Website themes: No
Built-in payment processor: Yes
Quizzes: Yes
Powerful marketing tools: No
Live chat: No

Teachable’s course creation features are worth mentioning — it has several peripheral services, and it is simple and clean. That being said, even if you are a total newbie at creating and selling content online, you still won’t have a hard time using the platform.

While Teachable doesn’t have premade website themes like Kajabi, it allows you to edit/customize your web pages — to some extent. Some of the things that you can modify are your webpage’s background and logo, its typography, and the color theme of your web pages.

The platform, however, doesn’t have that many marketing features to it.

3. Thinkific.com

Overview:

Pricing packages:
Starter – $0
Essentials – $39 per month (billed annually) | $49 per month (billed monthly)
Business – $79 per month (billed annually) | $99 per month (billed monthly)
Advanced – $219 per month (billed annually) | $279 per month (billed monthly)
Product themes: Yes
Website themes: No
Built-in payment processor: Yes
Quizzes: Yes
Powerful marketing tools: No
Live chat: No

From a pricing standpoint, Thinkific definitely has its advantages. Taking into account how it only charges about $39 for its monthly services while allowing their users access several of their “premium-worthy” features, it can very well be considered as one of the most affordable tools to use when it comes to creating and selling content.

The platform also allows its users to offer bundles and upsells, promotions and discount coupons, and it also allows scheduled (drip) content.

4. Zippycoursesplugin.com

While Zippy Courses is currently just a WordPress plugin, their developers are now working on the next generation Zippy Courses where it will be a full blown platform that can be used to teach and sell courses online.

The plugin has a plethora of nifty features that allows you to create modules and courses in just a matter of minutes. The plugin also integrates seamlessly with third party tools like Aweber, GetResponse, MailChimp, Paypal, Stripe, etc.

The challenging bit about Zippy Courses is you need to have a good understanding of how WordPress works. If you aren’t familiar with WordPress, then you might find it exceedingly difficult to use the plugin.

5. WishlistProducts

Wishlist Products is a WordPress plugin that can turn your regular WordPress website into a complete membership site.

The plugin also has the Partial Content Display feature where your non-members can view excerpts or a portion of your content. This is a perfect way to show them a glimpse of how much value you can give them. Of course, the moment they fall in love with your content, it becomes dramatically easier for you to compel them to subscribe to your online courses ultimately leading to you getting more sales and leads.

The platform also integrates with other popular tools online like Infusionsoft, MailChimp, Paypal and Stripe (among others). Another thing you’ll also appreciate about the company is their easy to access support via Skype, Live Chat, KB, and phone, etc.

Conclusion
