Who Makes LifterLMS?

The LifterLMS team is a diverse group of talented course creators, developers, designers, marketers and entrepreneurs.

It was through many years experience building high end custom WordPress LMS websites for the expert industry, that the LifterLMS project was born.

Scaling LifterLMS From A Simple Online Course…

LifterLMS is incredibly flexible, customizable and scalable. It can be used for a simple one course website, and it can also be used as course marketplace or multi instructor online school. LifterLMS can handle small sites with low course enrollments, and it’s also used in large universities and inside fortune 500 corporations for employee training.

Unlike hosted LMS software where you would pay monthly for access and pay more as your platform grows, LifterLMS does not charge you more per course. LifterLMS also does not charge you more per instructor or per student or based on your revenue.

Some LifterLMS websites are small in terms of course and membership enrollments by design. Some are quite large in the hundreds of thousand of course enrollments. The largest site we know about has 734,415 course enrollments.

Wether you are going big or keeping it small, LifterLMS can scale to your needs for your online course, membership site, training portal, or remote school.

What Others Are Saying About LifterLMS for Course Building, Membership Sites, and Remote Schools…

“I’ve used a number of course creation and delivery platforms over the years. And they were all fine… right up to the day when they weren’t. The trouble is, they all want you to package and manage your course the way THEY think you should do it. THEIR feature set. THEIR way to do it. Now I host all my courses on LifterLMS. TOTALLY different experience, because I’m free to do things MY way. I’ve never yet hit a wall where LifterLMS didn’t enable me to do things the way I wanted. Love it! Great support and community too.”

Nick Usborne, Teacher, Entrepreneur

WP101.com serves more than 30,000 members, so it’s no small challenge to migrate to a new membership plugin. We spent more than a year carefully evaluating dozens of LMS and membership plugins before we finally discovered LifterLMS (a membership plugin and LMS plugin combined into one). It was the only plugin that checked all the boxes for our needs for course creation and membership functionality. And the LifterLMS team also shares our passion for creating better online learning experiences. In particular, we deeply resonate with their goal of restoring the human touch to online learning—something that is absent from most online courses today.”

Shawn Hesketh, Owner, WP101

“As a former School Teacher, professional User Experience Designer, and current online course creator – I can honestly attribute much of our success to LifterLMS and it’s consideration for multiple learning modalities, the LMS UI/UX out of the box, and natural student Engagement opportunities. In less than 10 months we’ve gone from $0 to $300K in revenue with LifterLMS playing a huge part in that!! I’m looking forward to everything that comes next from the creators of LifterLMS!!”

Sarah Lorenzen, Teacher, Entrepreneur

“LifterLMS has been the best decision we have made towards the build out of our course library, online Learning Management System site, and community. The breadth and depth of what the LMS offers in a few WordPress plugins exceeds anything else we evaluated as it includes: easy course construction, integrated eCommerce, community capabilities, gamification and the support for delivery of 1-on-1 coaching collaboration services. Lifter also has pre-built integrations with other key WordPress technologies we wanted to use. LifterLMS has attracted a solid community and support network of leading experts to help guide anyone who wants to transform the world or their industry with online training. Chris and the Lifter team are real people, and they care.”

Michael Wolf, CEO, emPowering NOW LLC (Golden XPR)

“I bought/installed LifterLMS yesterday then spent the day having a blast! Two years ago I started writing a book, which morphed into wanting to present the material online in a more interactive way. I started my website from scratch in January and installing the LMS was a milestone moment! A milestone moment that turned out to be one joy right after the other! I’m always amazed when something is made easy! The LifterLMS product is amazing!! Power to the people! Really quite extraordinary to have something so helpful be able to be in the hands of regular folk.”

Margot Worthy, Author, Teacher

FAQ

Where do I buy LifterLMS add-ons or bundles?

You can explore the individual add-ons here or save BIG with a bundle

Are there any troubleshooting steps you’d suggest I try that might resolve my issue before I post a new thread?

First, make sure that you’re running the latest version of LifterLMS. And if you’ve got any other LifterLMS extensions or themes, make sure those are running the most current version as well.

The most common issues we see are either plugin conflicts, theme conflicts, or outdated servers. You can test if a plugin or theme is conflicting by manually deactivating other plugins until just LifterLMS is running on your site. If the issue persists from there, revert to the default Twenty Fifteen theme. If the issue is resolved after deactivating a specific plugin or your theme, you’ll know that is the source of the conflict. If it is a hosting issue, contact your web host and make sure they’re running the most current version of PHP.

Also be sure to check out the official LifterLMS Knowledge Base.

I’m still stuck. Where do I go to file a bug or ask a question?

Users of the free LifterLMS should post their questions in the plugin’s WordPress.org forum. If you find you’re not getting support in as timely a fashion as you wish, you might want to consider purchasing a product from LifterLMS so you can access the LifterLMS support team.

If you’re already a LifterLMS customer, you can simply log into your account and contact the support team directly on the LifterLMS website. We can provide a deeper level of support in there and address your needs on a daily basis during the work week. Generally, except in times of increased support loads, we reply to all comments within 12 business hours.

I have been properly assisted in each stage of my project, I am really very satisfied with the product and the support service.
24 Նոյեմբերի, 2021
Lifter LMS is a powerful app to set up a learning market place. It has many desired functionality built in. I particularly like the videos Chris and his team created to illustrate how to set up and use the product. Will and Kurt are super knowledgeable and friedly to provide the tech support that is much needed for anyone to get started and to benefit from the powerful functions that come with the product. I'd recommend anyone looking for a comprehensive LMS system, and/or a learning market place to give Lifter LMS a try.
11 Նոյեմբերի, 2021
After spending a couple of months studying all of the LMS plugins I could find, and even trying out a couple of them, we settled on LifterLMS and I'm glad we did. In the 7 months since we got the plugin I have published 17 Courses, some with 40 Lessons or more. They all look great and work great too. The only problems I had are due mostly to my lack of knowledge of WordPress "posts" and how they work. Like other LMS plugins I tried, LifterLMS uses posts, and also uses many of the WordPress settings and functions. Some things were a very pleasant surprise. The "Featured Video" that you can include with each course is designed to work with YouTube, Vimeo, etc., but I use a video hosting company named iPlayerHD so I can keep my training videos private. The "share link" for my videos works perfectly with LifterLMS. I just paste it into the Featured Video field and it works. One feature that makes LifterLMS a lot better choice than other LMS plugins is the smooth Woocommerce integration. All it takes is a couple of clicks to add LifterLMS a list of Courses and Memberships to the Woocommerce "my-account" page. With Woocommerce we can sell the same downloads we have been selling for more than 15 years along with a new Online Learning Course, all at the same time. Just add one item to your cart and you will receive all 3: Online Learning plus Downloads plus a Membership. The Membership feature is something I have just started to explore in the last few days and I am fascinated by it. We can have our Alumni Association on the same website with the Courses and Downloads, and provide access to people who complete the qualifying courses. Fabulous! Something else I just discovered a few days ago is the Voucher feature. Very convenient, now our Silva UltraMind ESP Instructors around the world can use vouchers to give their seminar and webinar graduates free access to our alumni association membership and products on LifterLMS. Vouchers will also be great to have handy when somebody decides not to attend an in-person seminar - or when giving a presentation to a civic club or other group. We can sell vouchers to our Instructors for half price and let them resell them. Our work looks great on the website front end too. I found some nice images to use with each of the Courses, and I experimented some with the brief Course information that appears on the Courses page. Then I used a shortcode to add the Courses to the home page. It is perfect! It displays a little smaller than on the Courses page, and that is perfect for the home page. And... I have a carousel at the top of the home page - my attempt to do what Amazon does - so I added small versions of my Course artwork, and made them clickable. I'm sure you won't be surprised when I tell you that our sales picked up, even though we haven't been doing anything special to promote them. In summary, after 7 months, I can enthusiastically recommend LifterLMS. The plugin itself has worked as advertised. I don't recall a single problem that was due to the plugin. The support team members are outstanding, they have been patient with me when I get confused and frustrated.
23 Հոկտեմբերի, 2021
Most of my clients are online coaches … I eat, sleep and breathe building online courses and memberships for them and LifterLMS is my tool of choice for this. Not only is it easy for me to setup and style beautifully, but more importantly it’s easy for my clients to add new memberships, courses and lessons themselves once I’ve built a beautiful base for them to work from. And a cherry on top … it works out cheaper than those other third party solutions out there that have you locked in to expensive monthly fees and limited design and flow freedom.
