Shopping cart to Sell Videos & coaching?

I often get asked about the best tools for selling video courses, memberships and coaching.

As you probably know, I use an all-in-one platform called Kajabi that has an in built shopping cart.

But .. I know a lot of folks do not want an all-in-one and want to piece together the best tools into their own stack.

Well .. if I wasn't using Kajabi and was looking for a superior but low cost shopping cart .. I would without hesitation choose ThriveCart.

(nb. Even if you use Kajabi or Teachable or Thinkific & more .. you can still integrate with ThriveCart.)

I have used ThriveCart as a customer and as an affiliate promoting folks who sell their products via ThriveCart.

ThriveCart's feature set rocks:

Video Hero, Yosemite & Brexit!

Time for a catch up ... and no that is not me pictured above!

First up .. Brexit

Last week I took the day off to head to Westminster, it was yet another huge voting day in the Brexit process plus there was a large pro-Brexit demo.

I must admit I have become addicted to flicking between news channels and social media observing every twist and turn. Got to stop that!

But I was NOT demonstrating! I wanted to witness with my own eyes (and camera) what was going on plus shoot some stock clips / stills of the 'circus' surrounding the vote.

What I love about running an online business via video is that whenever I want to take a day off and go into town to soak in the vibe I can!

After all, whatever your views - it is history in the making that will be studied in schools in years to come.

I do admire the calmness of the TV News Presenters who are set up near Parliament with folks...

Should I make an Online Course or Membership Site?

So one of the biggest shocks I had monetizing my knowledge via Video was when I first made money at the movies!

Watch the recording >> https://www.videohero.com/membership-site-dynamite

Going to the movies is getting seriously expensive in the UK especially if you have kids ... who come with big snack demands!

So I sat there watching some average Animated movie thinking about the money I had just spent :)

But when I eagerly switched my iPhone on at the end of the screening .. PING ... PING .. PING my paypal account had received several payments.

These more than covered my Cinema expenses and it was instant money in my account.. no waiting to be paid invoices.

A total game changer, as before I had only made money after I worked my socks off and got a monthly freelance pay check (often late) from whatever TV company I happened to be in a contract with at the time.

This kind of WOW moment only happens if you have digital assets online to sell - attached to a Buy Button....

My Kajabi results .. (Knowledge Commerce platform)

As you may know by now, I use Kajabi for this whole site and online business!

If you are thinking "WOW it's pricey!" .. you simply are NOT seeing the potential of selling your knowledge online via Video.

You are thinking too small, you are missing a huge & proven opportunity.

Here's my US$ sales inside my Kajabi dashboard, this past 3 days including today (so far I should add)!


So just those 3 days of income almost paid for one year of Kajabi!

Yes, it takes effort and application .. but it's possible if you really go for it!

Remember you can choose (if you want) to run your Kajabi site as an 'all in one' .. so NO need for separate expenses for ...

  • Landing / Sales Page software
  • Wordpress hosting, themes and course plugins
  • Email provider with automations
  • Video & Media Hosting
  • Live and Evergreen Webinar software
  • Shopping cart
  • Quiz plug in
  • Affiliate system
  • Essential Tech support

It's all included in Kajabi!

The saving is huge .. and having everything together plays...
