“My startup costs were to upgrade my GoDaddy hosting for 5 years to WordPress cPanel to have PHP 7.2, purchased a security certificate for my site, purchased PayPal plugin from you guys. I launched my eight LifterLMS courses on Nov 1. Marked courses FREE until Dec. 1 and promoted to my professional friends. Had 51 course enrollments. Replaced the course free button with a Purchase button Dec. 1. Reached my costs “break even” point Dec. 15. And, I haven’t even marketed to my full pro email list which is more than 600+ in NYS and about 2000 USA.”
