Greg Smith Left a Successful Corporate Law Career to Start a Thriving Online Course Platform

My next guest, Greg Smith, had a very successful career in corporate law.

He started an online course to move away from corporate law to start a new chapter in his life, and this course had revenues that were much better than expected.

After getting phone calls from others to get advice on how they could also model their courses the same, Greg's intuition seized on this opportunity to start Thinkific, which has now become one of the largest online course creation platforms.

A Crash Course on Scaling an Online Course Platform with Greg Smith, CEO of Thinkific | Ep. #360

Read more

Thinkific has risen to become the top searched course platform since their CEO Greg Smith last appeared on the show and today he joins us again to share some amazing updates. Our conversation with Greg covers the story of Thinkific’s evolution, and the company’s best practices for marketing, hiring, subscriptions, and corporate culture. We dive right in hearing Greg’s story about his college how-to blog for passing the LSAT that he morphed into an online course with the help of his software developer brother. Next up, Greg gives us a bunch of metrics about the company’s gross revenue currently, how much the average course creator would pay and earn using Thinkific, and which types of courses tend to scale. He also touches on some of the company’s strategies around getting course creators prepared to put their best foot forward and create packageable content that adds meaning to consumers for growing their own businesses. Our interview then moves onto the topic of hiring and staff, and we hear Greg's thoughts on delegation, headhunting, keeping vision aligned, and how to involve late cofounders from an ownership perspective. Thinkific stands as a great example of a company that scaled fast through a great team and business model so make sure you don't miss this one.
