Help for novices who want to create and sell online courses.

I hear it all the time…

“Kim, I wish I’d found you sooner!”

 Don’t wait until you’ve wasted too many hours that you can’t get back; you’re completely overwhelmed; or you’ve blown through too much cash.

If you're creating your first online course, you need Kim! I have looked at a dozen tutorials before I came across Brainy Girl on YouTube and she is by far the best at simplifying the process. I have since had a couple of one-on-one sessions with Kim and I find her to be easy to work with and her knowledge and passion shines through. I only wish I found her sooner.

Kim Garnett’s knowledge and expertise was instrumental in the creation and launch of my online programs on Thinkific. I was brand new to the platform and to creating online courses and after working through Kim's Course, I am more confident, clear and prepared. Kim is an excellent teacher with her ability to take complicated processes and break them down into small, clear cut steps. I highly recommend Kim as a teacher, mentor, and coach for anyone seeking support for online course creation.

This course was a lifesaver and saved me SOOOO much time and frustration! I don't know how anyone could do a course launch on Thinkific without this resource!!!

Kim at Brainy Girl is quick, knowledgable and easy to work with. I had a short turnaround time and Kim was able to support my requests in the desired timeframe and on budget. Plus, Kim provides her clients with helpful resources, videos and guides to make your course launches successful. Thanks Kim!

WHAT EVERY ONLINE CLASS SHOULD ASPIRE TO! When I built our first class online on Thinkific, we hired Kim to assist us through a series of 1:1 calls. Her help was instrumental in getting our course done and launched quickly. As we went to create another course, I turned to BrainyGirlU Thinkific Bootcamp to refresh me on all the steps I needed to take. I mean for $97, how could I not? WHAT I THOUGHT…was that since I had prior coaching from Kim, I knew all her inside tips and hacks so an online course would be all I need. WHAT I FOUND OUT…was that Bootcamp includes the drilled down, no fluff, detailed step-by-step process that Kim used on our private 1:1. Including all the tips and hacks! She has included everything a course creator needs to get their Thinkific course launched. AND AS A BONUS…I got to watch Kim drill down expertise that she originally delivered live into a seriously effective online course which is a great inspiration as we continue to work to do the same. If you want to build a course on Thinkific, you have to do Bootcamp! P.S. Trust her when she says don’t jump ahead. Follow her steps exactly in order for the quickest path to course launch.

I am 10 steps ahead of where I thought I'd be right now, because of Kim's expertise in the area of marketing courses! Her proficiency and knowledge has boosted my timeline exponentially. I am thrilled with her results and ability to train me to better understand how to market my course. I will be working with her more and more to leverage my time and strategic approach to growing my course enrollment. I am re-inspired with the tools to do this better and more efficiently! Thank you, Kim!

If you're not working with Kimberly and her team to set up your online courses, then one of two things is happening: 1) You're either working with the wrong company, or 2) You're leaving money on the table. You NEED to work with Brainy Girl when it comes to understanding this very detailed process. Every time I've spoken with Kimberly, she has helped remove the BRAIN FOG that has kept me from moving forward in my journey. She's patient, kind and willing to explain things until they make sense to ME! It's 2021 and I'm finally ready to move forward to get my site up this year. I'm so thankful for her and her team! ❤️❤️❤️

Wow, am I ever glad I participated in this Bootcamp! I learned everything I need to launch an online course which I couldn't have done as gracefully without Kim's knowledge and patient guidance. Added bonus - I have even more tech skills in my pocket than I did going in!

I have just completed Brainygirl's Course Launch Bootcamp, and actually launched my first online course as a direct result of doing so, after having sat and watched tutorials and read Thinkific's help pages for months with perfectionism paralysis. Kim's help has been invaluable, from her wisdom and expertise drawing from 20 years in the field to her knowledge and comfort with tech, to her patient manner and dedication as if I was her only client and my course the only one that mattered, to her coaching that went beyond just course creation and dealt with my anxieties too! (She was my coach, mentor, marketing adviser, copywriting adviser, course creation expert and counselor rolled into one throughout the whole process, and I honestly could not have done it without her). Her video tutorials and instructions were all very clear, concise and follow a logical format. I felt that I was in safe hands from the get-go, and trusted her processes completely as she explains the 'why' behind everything we do. She always went above and beyond the call of duty to troubleshoot any problems I came across, going through the process with me until I had understood, and patiently answering all my questions (when she could easily have just directed me to her previous tutorials or other courses). I highly recommend the Bootcamp and Kim herself, and feel it was the best investment I have made in myself, as it gave me transferrable skills that I can apply to any business, not just course creation. By Day 3 of the Bootcamp, I already felt I had got my money's worth of value.

It’s time to reach out and ask the Experts for help.

About Kim

Kim Garnett is the founder of Brainy Girl, and a technology and digital marketing specialist (since 2001) working with novice course creators to help them get visible, grow their audience, and get their courses online.

Kim is recognized as a Thinkific Expert (since 2015). She has helped hundreds of novice course creators grow successful online education businesses.

“I ventured into the world of online entrepreneurship 20+ years ago. I began in the field of website development and was an early adopter of social media and content marketing.  After many years as a specialist virtual assistant with a team of my own, I became a Digital Marketing & Technology specialist and trainer.

With a vast skill set and knowledge of what it takes to be a successful online entrepreneur, I help other entrepreneurs build relationships with their audience through organic  marketing and turn those relationships into revenue, streamlining and automating with digital technology. I help my clients and students scale their businesses with online courses and programs to create residual revenue, increased flexibility, and to ultimately live their lives on their terms.

I’m a firm believer in “staying in your lane” – being focused on what you do best, and calling in the experts and specialists to help move you further ahead, faster.

I am passionate about contributing to your success. I’m driven by helping people, just like you, achieve their goals and live their dreams.

I look forward to connecting with you.

Absolutely the best experience ever with a site development. So professional, intellectually provocative, asking the right questions, exceptional listening skills – on a scale of 1-10, Brainy Girl gets a 12.

I have sixteen courses to publish yet, and I am looking forward to the inspiration and support I can rely on from Kim and her team.

Client Love

Kim is simply amazing! She combines an excellent grasp of not only the Thinkific platform, but course creation in general. But it doesn’t stop there. She understands marketing and promotion, so she can guide your process with a view of the overall end product but never forgetting your goal…giving massive value to your intended audience.

I was apprehensive when I first engaged Kim, but it soon became evident that she has helped in successful course creation many, many times before. I am not an experienced techno person and she patiently answered all my silly questions and reassured me that the process would result in something I was proud of and would meet the needs of my clients. As testimony to my confidence in her ability, I plan on using her again soon to set up and launch my second course! Speaking in terms many entrepreneurs relish, my ROI with Kim has been massively positive!

Dr. Ron Eaker

I ended up choosing Kim because she is what she claims to be, an expert on Thinkific’s platform and highly experienced in marketing e-courses.

I was already piloting my courses but she was able to give me pointers on how best to host my audio and video files with a clear view of how courses on Thinkific work for clients and gave very clear advice on how to design a site with sales / marketing in mind. The whole process enabled me to clarify my thinking and identify / convey key messages about my courses to potential clients on my site. Kim is on the ball, pays attention to detail and is on top of the tech. Hire her, you won’t regret it.
