In fact, it can be downright CONFUSING and OVERWHELMING!
and I help novice course creators get their courses online and into the hands of their buyers.
With 20 years in digital marketing & technology, I jumped on the online course bandwagon very early and I've helped thousands of novices get their courses online since then.
I know the challenges you face with finding the information you need, figuring out how to implement it in your own business, feeling overwhelmed by technology, and not wanting to be a sleazy salesperson. I get it!
That's exactly why I created my own suite of online courses, workshops, Bootcamps, and training for novice course creators.
I've launched 40 courses and 3 membership sites of my own, and having an online education business has allowed me flexibility, additional revenue, and the ability to touch lives worldwide BUT it didn't happen overnight.
I want to help you through this part of your journey, so that you don't wind up in tears and give up... leaving your dreams behind.
I'm not going to tell you it'll be easy, but it will be easier with an expert guide by your side.
Taught by one of Thinkific's original experts - Kim Garnett, this blended program guides you through each step of the process.
As soon as you join you'll get access to the templates and worksheets that you'll need to complete prior to the first day of the Bootcamp.
These templates and worksheets will help you gather the information you'll need to have at your fingertips when the Bootcamp starts - and will make the process EASY!
You'll also need to have your course curriculum / course materials (videos, pdfs, quizzes, etc.) ready to go by the time Bootcamp starts so that you can focus on site set up during Bootcamp (this is the kick-in-the-pants you need to finally DO THIS!).
On the first "official" day of Bootcamp we'll gather (virtually) for a live Q&A session dedicated to answering your questions about the Bootcamp, or about the pre-Bootcamp worksheets & templates before we get started, and to celebrate the start of the journey! Oh - and you can join our private popup Facebook group to meet others on the same journey.
You'll also be submitting your sales page copy (which you create using our Sales Page template) for review and suggestions from our team.
Each day, during the Bootcamp, you'll be given tasks to complete along with detailed instructions for completing them. Some of the task instructions will be written, some will be video tutorials. These tasks should take under 1 hour per day to complete.
You also have the opportunity to join either of the live Q&A's on these days - yes, TWO DAILY LIVE Q&A'S! These will run at 9am Pacific and 4pm Pacific daily. You can click here to see what times those are in your time zone.
During the Bootcamp you'll be:
On Day 13 you'll be publishing your course, testing the enrollment process, confirming that everything is working as it should be, and connecting to your own website (if you have one). THIS IS A HUGE MILESTONE!
Woo hoo! On the last day of the Bootcamp we'll be gathering for a virtual celebration, and you'll be submitting your site to be showcased on the Bootcamp Stars page on BrainyGirlU.com with a link to your Thinkific site!
Once you've got your course published and your Thinkific site live, you'll get access to resources to help you grow your email list, get in front of your audience, and sell your course. You'll have access to these for 6 months after the Bootcamp ends.

"Just when you're ready to smash something - Brainy Girl to the Rescue!
I was hitting places where I was unsure, inexperienced, baffled even.
Kim’s expertise from how a video should sound and look, to its needed length, to branding, images, finessing terms and conditions and privacy settings and EVERYTHING was a dream come true.
I’m extremely busy like the rest of you, so if you want to save time and feel more sure about certain aspects of your new course and site, I can’t recommend Kim highly enough.
- Dr. Jennifer Fraser, Exit Bullying
"I am not the most computer savvy person and when it came to setting up my courses online I thought it was going to be a whole lot easier than it was. With the help (and patience) of Kim at Brainy Girl I managed to get my course content online and selling fast!! I highly recommend this course and the services Kim at Brainy Girl has to offer. Thanks Kim!"
- Cori Coutts, MyCORCompliance
How do I know if this Bootcamp is right for me?
This Bootcamp is PERFECT for you if...
I'm not a copywriter. How am I supposed to write my own sales page copy?
Having a copywriter write 1 page of good sales copy will cost you around $3,000 - and most course creators can't afford that when they're getting started, so we provide you with a Sales Page Builder worksheet which gives you formulas and examples for each section of a sales page to help you write copy that converts! We use the same worksheet with our clients and they're able to write their own sales copy (even though they're not copywriters). You also have the opportunity to submit that worksheet, once completed, to the Brainy Girl team and we'll review it and make suggestions for improvement.
I'm not a designer. How am I supposed to create well-designed landing pages?
You'll be designing 3 landing pages for your Thinkific site during the Bootcamp - the Home page (of your Thinkific site), the Course Sales page, and the post-purchase page. We'll give you resources for finding the right images, guidelines for imagery, and even show you how to easily resize those images as well as where they should be placed on those pages! Towards the end of the Bootcamp you can submit your pages to our team for review and suggestions.
I have multiple courses / a membership or I want to sell to organizations.
Great, but one thing at a time. It's important to have your Thinkific site set up properly first. Participating in this Bootcamp will ensure that your site is set up properly and your first course is online. After that you can focus on selling to organizations (you'll still need a course set up to sell to them), adding additional courses, or creating a membership model (a 'bundle' of courses).
What's the time commitment for the Bootcamp?
PRE-BOOTCAMP: Allow for approx. 10 hours to complete the pre-Bootcamp templates and worksheets. You'll also need to have your course materials and assets complete prior to Bootcamp starting.
DURING BOOTCAMP: For the 14 days of Bootcamp you should allow for 1 hour per day (on average) to work on your daily tasks. There will also be 2 live virtual Q&A's per day that you may wish to join in on (one or both) so you'll want to allow time for those as well.
Will I get 1:1 help?
This is a group Bootcamp so you won't get 1:1 help HOWEVER you can join one, or both, of the daily live stream Q&A's so that you can ask your question(s) and get the answers you need to keep moving forward. You also get to submit your course sales page copy for review and suggestions.
Can I get a refund if the Bootcamp is not right for me?
No, we don't offer refunds as you get access to all pre-Bootcamp templates and worksheets when you save your spot, so please ensure you've read all of the information on this page before you enroll.
If you can't make the Bootcamp you've signed up for you can get in touch with us at least 7 business days in advance of the first day of the Bootcamp and we'll enroll you in the next scheduled Bootcamp instead.
How many other people will there be in this Bootcamp?
We have a maximum of 30 people in each of our Bootcamps.
Does my location matter?
Absolutely not! You can join from anywhere. We have 2 x live stream Q&A's daily (9am and 4pm Pacific) so you can join either one, or both.
I have another question not listed here.
No problem! Just click here to send us an email with your specific question. Please ensure you've read all of the information on this page prior to emailing to be sure that your question hasn't been addressed on this page.

"After months of planning, recording, beta testing, revising, and fine-tuning, I am delighted that my first online course has now launched.
I couldn’t have done it without Brainy Girl. If you’re just getting started, I cannot overstate how helpful it is to have help from someone with Thinkific experience. And when that person is also a patient teacher with a deep well of technical knowledge and experience, the support is invaluable."
