From Book Author to Course Creator

“I bought/installed LifterLMS yesterday then spent the day having a blast!

Two years ago I started writing a book, which morphed into wanting to present the material online in a more interactive way. I started my website from scratch in January and installing the LMS was a milestone moment! A milestone moment that turned out to be one joy right after the other!

“I was wondering how difficult it was going to be (it isn’t!). I’m always amazed when something is made easy! The LifterLMS product is amazing!! Power to the people! Really quite extraordinary to have something so helpful be able to be in the hands of regular folk.

When I first installed it, I (briefly) thought, “Now how do I start?” And then I realized the Setup Wizard had put all the help I needed right in front of me- Chris leading a course to walk me through creating my first course. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. It was the info I needed, just when I needed it.

Thanks for all your help when I emailed you. You helped me to the point of hitting “buy” (you helped me with knowing I should proceed with bbpress forum). Actually, you helped me more than that- you helped me to know that if/when I have questions after I purchase, that there is a real person there to help me. That really helped me to hit “buy.”

Chris and His Team Help You Avoid the Pitfalls

“If LifterLMS is to be used to monetize your knowledge through courses and memberships, then it is a no-brainer and a shoe-in for your next online course plugin. It is so well designed and so reliable that it would be hard not to recommend it.

While some people might find all of the options a little bit pricey, the fact that you have strong priority support, with coaching and Ask Me Anything style webinars is a unique offer which you shouldn’t underestimate. As you build an online business with courses, Chris and his team can help you avoid the pitfalls.

LifterLMS is a top class course plugin that performs exceptionally well. It delivers everything you need from a course builder and then some. You will need to buy a payment gateway to be able to sell your courses but if you don’t mind that, this is an excellent option.”
