Hey, @mryouwho 

 

You can definitely use Shopify to leverage and support your online courses business. There are apps that also assist with just that. I've gone ahead and compiled several apps I feel will have some great features that you may want for your business:

Locksmith - This will allow you to lock pages and content on your store so that only the customer/affiliate with the credentials to see that page will have access to it.

 

Refersion: Affiliate Tracking - This is a great app that you can use to power an affiliate program if you plan on partnering with others to market and recommend your site/courses for a commission.

 

Digital Downloads - This can be used to help with any downloadable content that you offer to customers, they can make the purchase on your store and will then get a link to access that download.

 

Bold Recurring Membership - This could also be an option as you can offer member access for tiered pricing and courses. 

 

Courses - This is sort of a pre-packaged online course platform solution that allows you to create lessons and sell them online through their app. You will be able to add necessary materials to your products (courses) – text with all necessary formatting, images, embedded videos, etc (in a similar way to Udemy, Coursera, Lynda). In case if webinars format works better for you, you can embed online videos or even live streams into the lesson's contents.

 

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Shopify is implementing the "Shopify Educational Partner", which verify courses and give it a "Shopify Approved" badge. I think it's a good way to promote your course and you might be interested.

Is there a fundamental difference between selling courses in eCommerce or selling essay?

Yes, the difference is big when you work for yourself and not for intermediaries.

I only know that when you work for yourself and not for intermediaries. The point is that many marketplaces leave their writers with royalties. I myself am like that, as I work at  for a company that advertises such writers. Of course, managing and promoting your website isn't easy. And it's always worth learning about business and new ways to attract customers.

Hello dear users!So fantastic thread here. Let us discuss something bigger. For example, our problems in writing essays or speeches or business letters. I have a lot of not nice situations with writing essays can put even two words together. https://writingmetier.com/letter-writing-service-online/ gives me relief from all that problems. So now, not only two even words but even big essays is not a problem for me.
