The journey of creating, launching, and selling courses consists of hundreds of tasks. 

One day you’re designing a logo.

The next, you might be investigating your automated email campaigns to find out why they’re not working as intended.

There’s video content to be shot and edited, curriculums to be designed, and live lessons to be hosted. 

Course creators tend to lose momentum when the task pile gets too large, or when one particular task creates a logjam. And in the online course business, momentum is critical.

Sometimes, you need to outsource the work to a pro. 

Maybe you need help with photos or video. Or writing a sale page. Or design.

Many creators need help with the more complex tasks like curriculum development, or sales funnel design and setup.

Once you know what you need professional help with, there’s another problem – finding the right person, with the right skillset, at the right price, that’s available at the right time can take some serious searching.

And there’s a risk too – what if you sink time and effort into searching for help, but never find it? 

Our team here at Thinkific has been thinking about this problem for a while, and we have two main solutions: the Thinkific Expert Marketplace, and the Thinkific Store on Fiverr.

Here’s a comparison of the two so you can find the right professional for the job.

The Thinkific Expert Marketplace

The Thinkific Store on Fiverr

Budget: $ – $$

What you can get done:


Simply put: the Expert Marketplace is for the big jobs, when you need someone who can provide a truly comprehensive solution to a segment of your business — and the Fiverr store is for the smaller jobs, where you want help with a specific task that’s driving you to distraction, or a quick boost of labor power to keep your momentum going.

Investing in professional services — whether it’s a big job or small task — is a great way to remove blockers and generate momentum on your journey to hitting your course business goals.
