How an online coach uses ConvertKit Commerce to validate their digital course idea with a presale
Zig Zsiga has been in the networking industry for 20 years. He is currently a Customer Delivery Architect at Cisco Systems.
Zig holds an active CCDE and two CCIE certifications, one in routing and switching and the second in service provider. Zig also holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Science from Park University. Zig is a father, a husband, a United States Marine, a gamer, a nerd, a geek, and a big soccer fan. Zig loves all technology and can usually be found in the lab learning and teaching others.
Zig has created the Zigbits Network Design Podcast where he provides real world context around technology. He also has just started a YouTube Channel where he covers network design concepts and frameworks. In the near future he will be launching his very own Digital Course- Network Design Course: Let’s Make you the Best Network Designer!
ConvertKit Commerce is extremely easy to leverage. I created a product in less than 20 minutes and had my first purchase within 5 hours.
I needed a pre-sales transaction to handle initial purchases of a digital course that doesn’t exist yet. I wanted to get this cart/transaction page out there quickly so I could complete the idea validation for my digital course and get into content creation.
Currently, I have sold 10 out of 20 spots in my early adopters program for my course titled, Network Design Course: Let’s Make you The Best Network Designer! I actually have the other 10 people in emails currently, just waiting on them to complete the transaction process. Each spot is $149.00 USD which ends up being $2,980.00 USD.
