ConvertKit and Teachable

This article goes over integrating ConvertKit with your Teachable school.


ConvertKit is an email marketing tool used by bloggers, authors and online entrepreneurs. You can use ConvertKit to create:

  • Opt-in forms
  • Landing pages
  • Email courses
  • Automated emails
  • And more

ConvertKit only has paid plans, with the price based on the number of subscribers you have.

When you sync your Teachable school with your ConvertKit account, every time someone enrolls in any of your Teachable courses, they are added to your ConvertKit account.

You can use the Automations feature on ConvertKit to automate any kind of action around that. For example, when someone enrolls in your course on Teachable, you can remove them from an autoresponder sequence on ConvertKit, you can tag them a certain way, or you can enroll them in a different sequence.

NOTE: In order to set up this integration with a Teachable course, the course must be published.
