For many people, the new year signifies new beginnings and exciting change. For others, it’s an opportunity to continue and scale their successes from the year before and build on the foundation they’ve laid in the past.
For us here at Teachable, it’s hard to imagine being able to top the great year we had in 2018, but we’ve got a feeling that this new year is going to bring a lot of big things for Teachable and our course creators.
Here are a few highlights from 2018
Like I said, 2018 was a huge year. We saw course creators start from scratch and build 6-figure businesses, bloggers go from balancing their 9-5 with their online business to going full-time thanks to courses, and regular people from all corners of the world build their own personal empires thanks to their online courses.
- 17 course creators made over $1 million on Teachable
- 2 of those course creators made over $4 million
- In November, 656 course creators made $5,000+ on Teachable
- Some of the year’s most popular courses were in a range of unique topics including:
- Guided Meditation
- Drone Piloting
- Picture Book Writing
- Day Trading
- Holistic Health
- Marketing for Fiction Authors
- Teachable made the Forbes Cloud 100 Rising Stars List
And here is what’s around the corner….
As exciting as it is to celebrate past success, it’s even more exciting to look forward to what’s yet to come. Here are a few things we’re expecting in the new year:
- We’ll be focusing on empowering our creators to monetize their expertise through more than just online courses. Whether that’s live trainings, downloadable like ebooks, coaching, or other strategies entirely.
- We’re constantly growing the Teachable Team so we can better support all of you. This means creating more resources for our instructors, growing our customer support so we can get you assistance as quickly as possible, and hiring the best engineers in NYC to continue making improvements to the product.
- Continue to nurture our instructors so we can have more Teachable millionaires. There aren’t words to describe how exciting it is that people are able to fully support themselves and their families through Teachable. We’re ready to see more and more people take control of their lives, build their businesses, and become full-time creators.
- We're launching a new and improved Newsletter in February - make sure to keep an eye out for it in your inbox!
