341: 11 No-Code Tools I’m Using as a Six-Figure Course Creator

Today I’m sharing what I’m using for no-code tools and my tech stack as an online course creator. Believe me, I’ve experimented with a lot of different things, and I’m always willing to share what I’ve learned and what I recommend to others. If you aren’t familiar with the term “no-code,” it simply refers to tools that don’t require a code or advanced programming to use. I hope this information is helpful to anyone who is creating a course or thinking about this endeavor in the future. Join me to learn more!

You’ll Learn:

11 no-code tools I’m using to create online courses:

  • Kartra is an all-in-one platform with features that fit our needs. 
  • Circle provides a place for community outside mainstream social media. 
  • Stripe allows us to take payments within Kartra.
  • Loom is great for recording online course videos because there are many recording options.
  • Notion helps with lesson planning because there are lesson and template options that make it easy to repurpose content later. 
  • Testimonial.to makes it easy to gather testimonials from students; a downside is that it is expensive.
  • Smarter Queue helps with social media management because it integrates with Facebook groups and LinkedIn, and it recycles posts.
  • Canva is amazing because there are many clean and modern slide templates with animation and graphics. 
  • Headline Studios helps create engaging course titles with built-in AI and feedback.
  • Captivate is great for podcast hosting because of dynamic ads insertion.
  • Easy Webinar makes the webinar sign-up process easy for students.

About the Podcast

Selling the Couch
Impact + Income Beyond The Therapy Room
With over 1.5 million downloads, Selling the Couch is a top podcast for mental health private practitioners who think differently.

Psychologist Melvin Varghese interviews successful therapists, top entrepreneurs, business/marketing, productivity, and social media experts.

You'll learn how therapists get referrals, make money, work through fears, and how they've stopped "trading time for income."

Melvin also shares the lessons as he grows his impact + income beyond the therapy room (podcasting, video, online courses, masterminds, investing, etc) and the tips, tools, and tech he uses to grow STC from a single-person business to the CEO of a 5-person 100% remote team.

You get bite-sized and highly actionable tips to guide your private practice and entrepreneurial journey.

About your host

Profile picture for Melvin Varghese, PhD

Melvin Varghese, PhD

Hi. I'm Melvin. I'm a psychologist, girl dad, and online creator living in Philadelphia, PA.

In 2014, I began to think about how to use our therapist skillset in different realms besides clinical work (e.g., podcasting, consulting, online course creation, writing, etc).

This allows us to serve others on larger scales while diversifying our income beyond 1 to 1 work.

I make podcasts and videos about business, tech, productivity, and lessons I'm learning from becoming the CEO of a lean, mean 5 person 100% remote team (we're not really mean..it just rhymed =P).
