It’s just a little trial and mistake; the remainder of the course builder and the website contractor is really just a drag and drop process.

Zapier can come with an additional monthly charge and it’s type of technical. I had some trouble getting ConvertKit totally integrated with Teachable and overview that in this Zapier tutorial.

It’s a bit long, so I have actually needed to break it up into a number of screenshots. Then it asks them to enter their account details. This consists of an email address and name.
