WP Coursify is a new product from Ankur Shukla that allows users to create a website that mimics the layout of Udemy. This can then supposedly be used to sell your own information products.
What does WP Coursify offer?
WP Coursify is a WordPress plugin that sets your website up in a certain way. In the case of WP Coursify, it mimics the well known site Udemy, itself a top website for those who want to learn new skills. Ankur Shukla says that by creating your own website in a similar fashion, you are able to take all the advantages of this kind of website and improve on it by allowing you full access to things like an email list and your profits.
There is also the option with WP Coursify to opt in to an additional upsell which allows you to receive a new course each month that you can sell through your website. As a piece of software, WP Coursify is relatively straight forward to use and does “what it says on the tin”. You can ultimately use WP Coursify to sell a variety of subjects ranging from training courses to PDF documents and even video training. Also included are a number of different products, most of which relate to the main premise.
How does WP Coursify work?
There is a lot of talk about what WP Coursify can do for you, mainly because it is something that Udemy can do, but without the downsides.
For example, Ankur Shukla talks about how when you are using WP Coursify, you won’t have a course shut down and you can build an email list based off subscribers.
By creating this kind of business online, you not only have people coming to your website to learn one course but potentially others if you are able to provide a quality service.
What is the initial investment?
At the time of writing, Ankur Shukla is selling WP Coursify at a cost of $25 for a single site license or $27 for an unlimited site license.
Both of these come with a full 30 day money back guarantee should you find that WP Coursify isn’t for you, however as it is sold through JVZoo, you will have to deal with the vendor to claim this.
What is the rate of return?
Ankur Shukla claims that it is more than feasible to make more than 4 figures per month with WP Coursify. This is a claim that is backed up by some rather questionable screenshots.
Conclusion on WP Coursify
I’m not sold on WP Coursify, both in terms of the presentation and the premise. Whilst Ankur Shukla is quick to compare a site running WP Coursify to Udemy, this is like comparing your estore to Amazon.
It is hard to ignore the fact that the brand name is a bit part of the appeal in terms of traffic etc.
This isn’t to take away from WP Coursify as a product as what it does, it handles rather competently. I just question whether or not it is providing a service that anybody ever really wanted.
