Getting Started as a Thinkific Partner

The Thinkific Partner Program is for Agencies and Freelancers who are providing Thinkific services to their clients. Our goal is to give you the tools you need to grow your business by helping your clients build extraordinary online courses. Your clients will love having full control over the site design, content, pricing, and student information and you will be able to hand off your work with minimal training and support so you can focus on growing your business. 


Our growing Partner community is comprised of Agencies, Affiliates, Developers, and Freelancers who help our customers with site customization, curriculum design, content creation, marketing, and more. There are 32,000+ course creators on Thinkific and many of them are looking for support in building and customizing online courses.
