A Udemy alternative that puts you in control of your business.

Podia is a Udemy alternative that gives you full control over your customers, data, and money, all on your own custom domain.

Own your platform.

You worked hard to build your audience, don’t let some massive platform own your relationship with them. With Podia, you own your customer data, your sales, your content, and your platform.

Keep every dollar you earn.

Instead of earning a fraction of an earnings pool, with Podia, you sell your products directly to your audience, you keep every dollar you earn. Creators switching to Podia have gone from earning a few dollars a month on marketplaces to earning thousands a month in the driver’s seat of their own business.

A support team there's here for you.

You deserve better than waiting days to get your questions answered. If you have a question or an issue, you can always reach us on live chat, email, phone, or video, regardless of your plan.
