Why WooCommerce?

WooCommerce already powers 30% of the world’s online stores. Why not use this powerful open-source software (along with a few GPL-licensed addons and plugins) to power all aspects of your website sales and marketing? There is absolutely no need to use costly so-called “marketing automation” systems like Infusionsoft, Kajabi, 1ShoppingCart, etc, to handle your sales, email marketing, or affiliate marketing. All the services you need can be provided through free software, which I am going to give you, and which will usually provide you more functionality than the commercial systems while minimizing undesirable complexity. Get more information about this, and then decide for yourself, by watching the first video in the course which gives you the 30,000 foot view.

Typical Use Cases — how you can use this course

  • Provide a Free membership tier to encourage visitors to sign-up to your site
  • Sell courses or other digital products via fixed-price or subscription payments (ie. $50 every month). Automatically cancel their access to content if they cancel their subscription
  • Add a newsletter or autoresponder to your website using free services — and then scale up to 100,000 subscribers at very minimal cost
  • Use the same WooCommerce shopping cart that you use to sell your courses and memberships to allow customers to setup appointments and pay for them — don’t confuse your customers with multiple systems and interfaces
  • Build your website and marketing efforts using open software rather than proprietary software, which typically gives you much more flexibility and big cost savings as well
