If you have an existing website (e.g. hosted on Wordpress, Squarespace, Weebly, Wix etc) and want to integrate it with, or link to your Thinkific website, read on!
We'll walk through different ways to link to your Thinkific course, and ways to create a seamless and branded experience between your two sites.
Skip to a section:
Linking From Your Navigation
We'd recommend adding a navigation item on your external site called "Courses" that links out to your Thinkific site. Then, on your Thinkific site, you can set your logo in your header to link back to your website.
Linking Directly to Checkout
By linking directly to the checkout page, you can create an even more seamless transition from external landing pages to your Thinkific site. This article details how to capture the correct URL to link to your Thinkific registration or checkout page.
Branding your Thinkific Site
Head to the Theme Settings in Site Builder to customize the site colors to match your existing site. Here's a great example of how one business has carried over their logo and colours from their external site to Thinkific:
Personalize your Thinkific URL
Our custom domain feature allows you to have your Thinkific site available at your own domain; so for example, if your existing site is at www.yourdomain.com then you can customize the URL for your Thinkific site to have it at courses.yourdomain.com or another subdomain of your choosing.
That way, as far as your students are concerned, everything will appear to be handled on a single website. This is important for building trust with your audience and creating a seamless brand experience between your existing website, and Thinkific website.
Remove Thinkific Branding from Your Thinkific Site
If you're looking to further personalize your Thinkific site, you're able to remove the Thinkific branding from your site pages, so your customers can focus on your brand alone. You can accomplish this by following these directions.
