I’ve included certain products and links to those products on this site including Member Vault, Acuity Scheduling, Zoom and Active Campaign. I will earn an affiliate commission for any purchases you make. Please note that I have not been given any free products, services or anything else by these companies in exchange for mentioning them on the site. The only consideration is in the form of affiliate commissions. The decision to register to use these tools is yours and yours alone and I am not responsible for the results you achieve by using these tools.
If you want a course platform that focuses on student engagement and let’s you integrate all of your favourite tools for one monthly fee, then Member Vault is for you. While it can be a good fit for new course creators, it’s also a great option for experienced course creators to uplevel their courses by increasing engagement and student completion rates.
I use Acuity for all my scheduling needs. It integrates with my calendar, and the paid version integrates with my preferred payment system. It’s also fully customizeable and allows me to create intake forms for people to fill out when they request a meeting with me.
I use Zoom for all my teleconferencing and training needs. There are various pricing levels, including a FREE level, but it provides all the functionality I need to communicate with my tribe with screen sharing, chat box functions, audio, video and recording possibilities.
Screen Capture Software
Jing is a FREE tool for capturing online images and videos. While I can use it for screen casting, it is most useful to me to do screen shots to add to my course content or to provide examples to communicate clear messages with my clients.
I prefer to host my videos on YouTube because they have a built in captioning feature and I have complete control over who sees my videos. I also like that my clients/students can change the speed of the video to allow for faster delivery.
Active Campaign is by the far the best email marketing system I have used. While I believe live connections matter, I am committed to engaging with my tribe in a consistent way AND on the topics that interest them the most. I do this in my business by utilizing Active Campaigns tagging system and automation workflow to ensure my business keeps moving no matter where I am or what I’m doing.
