- Online Classes, Your Website and Entrepreneurship featuring Alyssa Marshall with Owwlish Beefy Marketing 51:28
Tune in as we are joined by Alyssa Marshall of Owwlish to discuss the importance of pursuing one’s passions and how no-code tools can help individuals invest in their passions without having to worry about the technical aspects of building a course platform. Alyssa shares her experience with creating an online course platform and how she designed it to be user-friendly for those who want to focus on teaching rather than website design or payment collection. We also discuss the evolution of online course platforms over time and how they have become more accessible for creators. Alyssa emphasizes the importance of starting small with a mini-course and letting audience feedback guide the creation of future courses. The conversation then shifts to discussing Alyssa’s company, Owwlish, which helps others create their own online courses easily. The ideal fit for Owwlish is someone who wants to create a course but doesn’t want to deal with the technical side of things.

“You download it because it sounds fine. And then do you open it, how much do you actually utilize it? You just don’t, we all are busy and like a little thing of PDF, it just leaves our mind. It’s not substantial enough to take up our brain space versus if it’s a free course. A video, it is a lot more engaging and you just feel like you’re kind of with that person in a more intimate way.” – Alyssa Marshall
