They were universally terrible...
Summit frees you up to focus on creating value for customers (and getting more of them) rather than having to focus on operational minutiae.
Patrick McKenzie, Founder of Kalzumeus Software
The market has spoken -- online information product courses decimate traditional eBook products in terms of revenue, retention and customer satisfaction. In the past 5 years ELearning has turned into a multi-billion dollar industry, and continues to grow at an astounding rate — for both companies and individuals
Start working smarter, not harder. Summit Evergreen features a unique lesson drip system that sends each student through a timed lesson plan, with scheduled emails and surveys sent out automatically. Dripped content increases engagement, and helps students better recognize the value of your content -- with no extra work from you.
Summit Evergreen guides you through setting up your information product's content drip system -- that sends each customer through a timed lesson plan. Dripped content reduces refunds and adds perceived value to your content - with no extra work from you. Present your ideas in easy to understand lessons, which are automatically distributed to your customers on a schedule you decide.
With Summit Evergreen, "evergreen" is in our name — your content can be dripped out, be always available, or even have special content that's available to the general public. We make it easy to know what content is available to who, and when.
Students who reply, fill out content, and participate in your course refund at a significantly lower level than those who don't.
With Summit Evergreen's lesson followups and survey features, students will feel more engaged with your course, creating greater value, and higher satisfaction. Optionally, require users to complete lesson followup, or require a certain score before they can continue -- to ensure your students are getting the most out of the program, and identifying students who get stuck early on.
Tired of wasting money, time, and your own sanity from services that only “kind of” work? Worried that the platform that you base your business on is cobbled together on top of a rickety mound of toothpicks that requires work-around after work-around to actually use?
Summit Evergreen is a cloud-hosted application -- built around making it easy to deliver beautiful and intuitive courses to your students, and is designed by the same people who have facilitated the launch and management of some of the top names in the industry -- so we know what features are key to creating a smooth online experience, and which ones are just fancy window dressing.
Most membership sites rely on WordPress, and have to play nicely with updates and all its plugins. Updating your site can bring it down for hours or days, resulting in users who run old version of WordPress -- creating insecure sites that are easy targets for hackers.
With Summit Evergreen, everything is hosted in the cloud — which means no versions to worry about, automatic updates, and you get every update installed instantly, and securely, for free.
While WordPress runs 23% of all websites in the world, it still has a hard time standing up to traffic surges. While a blog going down can be considered an acceptable loss, what happens when your Membership platform goes down when someone is trying to purchase your course? And what if that downtime comes during your big sales promotion? Now your paying customers can't access your course — or worse yet, could never pay you in the first place.
Summit Evergreen is built on some of the sturdiest servers in the business, and is designed to be fast — so that your customers can always purchase your courses, with no technical issues.
Keep WordPress for your marketing -- and let us handle the mission-critical aspects of your business.
Understanding and connecting with your students is the best way to create customer loyalty. And loyal customers are the best way to increase your lifetime value.
We make Data Mining a breeze with Summit Evergreen's lesson followups and analytic features. Students will access the site and after engaging with your pre-prepared content you can assign homework, show webinars or have them complete custom surveys or polls.
Your students will be able to reply and provide valuable feedback about your products that will allow you to not only to "get to know" your customers, but personalize your products with ease.
When trying to build a product and a brand, the last thing you want is your hosting platform getting all the credit. You didn't work hard to be "That guy on Udemy." Your greatest asset is your individuality -- which is why we stay out of the way. Emails are sent from your address, the shopping cart has your logo on it, and we don't put our logo or brand anywhere we don't have to legally.
We also have a wide selection of themes, provided right out of the box, that are point-and-click easy to customize. Want more customization? Set up your own custom themes with our easy to use templating language that ANY web developer can start using immediately.
It's amazing how much a simple-to-use course system, and a platform built around being easy for your students to use, can reduce your support costs, improve your customer service, and lower the number of emails coming into your inbox.
Support is a major part of any business, and we've worked with some of the top names in the industry to make sure our student experience is simple and easy to use. That translates to less time you have to worry about support, and more time for you to create and maintain amazing courses.
