Movement vs Teachable
What is Teachable?
Teachable is a platform that allows creators to build and sell online courses, and is optimised for use on desktops. Teachable offers a supplementary mobile app that students can download to access their courses on the go.
What is Movement?
Movement offers a highly flexible and customisable drag-and-drop app builder that enables creators to build their own branded app. Optimised for mobile use, the apps can be accessed and offer a great experience on any device. An all-in-one platform that lets you host and engage your community, sell courses, coaching, memberships, and digital products, Movement is designed to be fully white-labeled and customised to provide a unique experience for your audience.
Why creators are making the move to Movement
These are some of the reasons creators have been making the move to Movement to build their own branded app, completely on their terms.
Movement and Teachable both offer free trials that allow you to test out all the features of the paid tiers. This means you can test your app with your clients and community, completely stress-free. However, when the trial period ends, the differences in pricing become quite apparent. Consider the following pricing differences to unlock key features when deciding between Movement and Teachable:
Advanced theme customisation:
Teachable - $655/month. Teachable’s Business plan unlocks advanced theme customization. If you're not on this plan, you'll have the option to select from two similar templates. While you can customize your logo, font, and colors, the template structure remains fixed, so your course may look more like Teachable than your own brand.
Movement - $0. Every Movement plan (including the Free plan) offers the ability to fully customize the layout of 50+ prebuilt page and program/course templates, or build your own template from scratch.
Cost to upload more than five courses:
Teachable’s Free plan only allows for one published product of each content type (course, coaching, downloads). You will need to be on the Pro plan ($159/month) to upload more than 5 of each product type, or the Business plan ($665/month), to upload more than 50.
With Movement, you can publish as many courses/programs and app pages as you want on the $0/month Free plan. This is made possible by integrations with YouTube / Vimeo and royalty-free Unsplash and Pexels image libraries. If you want unlimited direct audio and video uploads to build out your content, you can upgrade to the Base plan ($49/month). Movement isn’t just limited to courses either–you have 12 pre-built content types to choose from. Additionally, if none of the pre-built content types suit your needs, you can create your own custom content type on any plan.
In conclusion, while both Movement and Teachable offer valuable features for creating and selling courses online, Movement stands out for its community engagement features, affordable pricing, white labelling, flexibility, and use of progressive web app technology.
For creators who want to create their own branded app in minutes to deliver their course and content, engage their community, and sell digital products on a mobile-first platform, Movement is the convincing choice. The ability to send users a direct link to your app with a unique URL, bypassing the need for app store downloads and searches, makes Movement a more user-friendly and accessible platform.
If you primarily want to build and sell courses for use on desktop, don’t require many community features and don’t need to create a flexible and highly customisable app to deliver your content and host your community on, building a course with Teachable could be for you.
