You’ve heard of these two platforms in the world of online courses, but is Teachable better than Thinkific? Let’s find out.
Teachable vs Thinkific: The judgement criteria
Can you build YOUR brand?
Teachable is a learning management system that allows you to create courses and sell them online. In addition, teachable lets you create a website that can be connected to your online courses. You can choose any course theme and change the typography, brand color, logo, and background.
With Thinkific, you can choose your brand color and customize it according to your need. Moreover, you are not required to have the technical know-how as you can personalize without HTML and CSS with Thinkific's default course themes. In addition, Thinkific lets you create your site with both your brand name and Thinkific's own name.
Is it scalable?
Teachable allows you to create unlimited courses. You can repurpose your content and lecture easily to scale faster. Moreover, Teachable offers a bulk upload feature, where you can migrate your student information and courses from another platform. Finally, there is a drag-and-drop builder through which you can easily create websites.
With Thinkific, you can add unlimited admins, courses, and groups. Moreover, you can send broadcasted emails to selected groups from your user base. In addition, there is an option for running personalized campaigns for a particular group. You can also create many pages apart from your sales page without compromising speed.
How much will it cost you?
Teachable's pricing plan has many tiers, which can get a little complex to understand. If you want to create a full-fledged learning experience for your members, you might have to upgrade your plan to an expensive one. There are four pricing tiers - Free plan, Basic plan at $29/mo, Pro plan at $99/mo, and business plan at $249/mo.
Whereas Thinkific comes with a free plan in which you can create courses and sell them online. The free plan will have less functionality as you can only upload limited courses.

The difference is in our DNA
We're content creators, teachers AND community builders.
And, we know how everything ties together to make a business.
We've been teaching online since 2018. We ran one of the world's largest educational communities from 2019-2021 and scaled to $500,000 revenue by selling cohort-based courses. We kept hopping from one software to another because the experience of actually using all available software is bad.
This led us to build Scenes - an all-in-one platform to run your courses, cohorts, webinars, events, voice chat rooms, etc. - on mobile & web (100% white-labeled).
