My name is Dainis Graveris.
If you are wondering why you should listen to my advice when it comes to online course platforms, it’s a GOOD question.
My background for 8 years was with 1stWebDesigner (sold 2 years ago).
Back in 2008..
I finished programming school, then went to web design academy until I understood I ‘m learning more online, so I quit and focused on 1stWebDesigner full-time.
At it’s heights 1WD reached over 2.5 million unique visitors a month, making it one of the top web design sites in the world.
There we created a lot of written content, videos, books.
We used Udemy at first to launch our course, then switched to Teachable. We also tried at one time Sensei, Woothemes path.
It was a while ago and now we have better tools. But I know what it takes to launch a successful course.
I know what tools matter and what doesn’t.
I’ve tried custom paths, I’ve tried 3rd party solutions.
I am myself a WordPress lover and still think it’s the best option for most websites.
However for..online courses – 3rd party now seems much EASIER and FASTER path.
That’s the short backstory.
If you’re curious of more, just read this interview done 3 years ago with me.
