The people replying are professional and seemed educated with the majority of the support concerns I asked up until I got to a question dealing with combinations. They were typically a bit clueless when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t assist with what I required. With the more standard concerns, I didn’t need to go backward and forward with them several times to get the concern figured out – . They generally answered the concern to the degree I required the very first time. There is no consumer assistance phone number and no live chat for clients of Teachable.

As an example, if I were utilizing a Teachable subdomain, clicking on the logo design above or any Teachable created page will take the user to businessbolts.teachable.com. If I’m utilizing my own domain (readily available on upgraded strategies), then clicking on the logo design will take the user to courses.businessbolts.com.

Because it doesn’t work everybody will be contributed to your ConvertKit list. It does not matter if they marked it off or not. To get this box to work you’ll have to utilize Zapier.
