Demelza's Top Tools
for Course Creators

These are all tools & training I was personally using and happy with before I started endorsing them or earning a commission on them when you sign up for them.

*Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you. Please understand that I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.

ClickFunnels

Why I recommend it:
This is the best software when it comes to building out funnels for your business. If your goal is to automate your online course and keep things simple and 'in house', this software can do it all - optin pages, sales funnels, host your course/membership, email, affiliates.
Plus, as a Platinum member, you get access to FunnelFlix and all the amazing training from top leader in the industry.

New Zenler

Why I recommend it:
I think this is the best place to host your course and is where I'm hosting my courses and membership.  The features far surpass its competitors, esp. considering the price.  You can build out simple funnels in the software as well as simple email broadcasts and the data on your funnel and course performance is great.  The support is impressive too - super fast!

ActiveCampaign

Why I recommend it:
You need a good email provider since emails are such an important part of your business.  If you don't use Clickfunnels (where emails are included), then I'd recommend ActiveCampaign.  You can segment your list, build out simple and complex automations very easily, and design great-looking emails.

Zoom

Why I recommend it:
As a course creator and membership site owner, I feel it's important to connect with my students. This is great for 1-1 coaching calls, as well as group coaching calls and breakout sessions.  You can also use it for hosting your webinars and Livestreams.

Streamyard

Why I recommend it:
This works so much nicer than the native Facebook Live option - you can add banners, questions, switch viewing styles, interview multiple people, and share your screen.  You can also stream to multiple channels at once.  This is all great for building connection with your audience on Social Media.

Zapier

Why I recommend it:
It's important to automate as much of your business as you can to free up your time for what's important.  Zapier can automate so many things for you as well as connect different software so that you can accomplish your goals.

GeniusLink

Why I recommend it:
Being an affiliate for other products is a great way to add a little bit of extra residual income. By using Geniuslink, you can use one link and receive commissions regardless of where in the world someone buys.

GroupConvert

Why I recommend it:
As more people join your Facebook group, it can become tedious and time consuming to manually copy/paste the information into your spreadsheet and/or email provider.  GroupConvert automates it all so that you just have to push one button - and all your new Facebook members' info will get pushed to a google sheet and, from there, to your email provider where you can then follow up with them via email without you having to do a thing!

Trello

Why I recommend it:
It's really important to stay organised and this is great for keeping track of social media content, videos, course content, membership content, and SO much more.  Running your business via Trello will be really helpful for when you come to hire a team too.

Evernote

Why I recommend it:
I joke that my 'life' is on Evernote - but seriously, it's the best place to keep track of all the notes, training, and other things related to my business.  I have my 'command central' as one of my notes and that's what keeps me on track for achieving my goals.

Google Sheets

Why I recommend it:
I have my one-year planner on here so I can see exactly what I need to get done to achieve my goals.  It's also great for adding your budget, creating calculators and worksheets for freebies, and even menu planning!

Canva

Why I recommend it:
This makes designing freebies and other graphics and PDFs so easy.  I use it regularly for FB posts and I've used it for my freebies, as well as YouTube thumbnails.

TRAINING I RECOMMEND

One Funnel Away Challenge

Why I recommend it:
To have the kind of lifestyle where you're not tied to your business but still making money every day, you want to automate as much as possible. This challenge will help you get your first funnel up and running so that you can start driving traffic through it and increasing your leads and revenue.

Video Ranking Academy

Why I recommend it:
If you want to succeed on YouTube, you need to know how YouTube works and how to get your videos to rank on the first page of search so that you can increase your channel views and subscribers.  YouTube is a 'long game' but, if you're strategic, you can win it.
