The Top 5 Benefits of Using a Self-Hosted WordPress LMS Solution
#1 – Totally Customizable
You get to decide precisely how your website, courses, and lessons are going to look and how you want your courses and classes to be laid out, and you can add other plugins or add-ons to customize everything to your heart’s desire.
You can really create a truly custom membership website, which will allow you to build your online courses on WordPress, giving you a lot more flexibility with a lot more power built in.
Using a membership plugin like LifterLMS or LearnDash affords you the flexibility to offer a mix of memberships, online courses, digital downloads, and digital products or coaching.
There’s a reason that over 40% of the web is powered by WordPress!
#2 - Ownership and Extensibility
WordPress is incredible because there are so many great options to choose from and different plugins and add-ons that you can use to extend the functionality of your site. With it, you can build things to work how you want them to, and you’re not waiting for an update with the functionality you really need for your online business to show up someday.
Plus, when you build on WordPress, you have full access and control of your content and members. You can regularly back up your site; if you need to export members, content, or anything else from your site, you can quickly and easily do that on WordPress. This is such an important point because so many clients get semi-trapped on a fully-hosted solution like Kajabi: if you want to move away from these types of platforms, it becomes a significant and expensive pain in the backside.
#3 - No Additional Charges or Transaction Fees
Another great feature of using WordPress to run your online courses is that a lot of WordPress course plugins do not have any transaction fees aside from the processing fees withheld by your payment processor. One thing to watch out for when using a platform as a service is its fees.
#4 - Total Design Flexibility
When it comes to online courses, there are very traditional designs with simple things like sidebars and progress tracking. However, as creators and creative entrepreneurs, we often want things to look gorgeous on our websites, and WordPress makes this possible.
- WordPress makes it easy to design mobile-friendly sites and custom and unique layouts.
- Whatever you have in mind, you can do it on WordPress.
With all of that flexibility comes a little bit more maintenance. One of the drawbacks of having this amount of flexibility is that you will probably need to upkeep and maintain things as you add new courses or material to your online programs. That’s what WP-Tonic helps you with!
Here are some online course design examples.
#5 - Ongoing Development
Lastly, and most importantly, a significant benefit of WordPress is that it is constantly improving.
WordPress isn’t just a static tool; it’s constantly evolving as technology evolves.
New versions and features are being released regularly. And it’s becoming even easier to use with these new evolutions.
That in and of itself makes it a great platform to choose and build your online courses on, especially when paired with the control and power you have over your content.
