On the show today is Ran Segall. Ran is the founder of Flux Academy, which offers courses on web design, freelancing, and Webflow.
I wanted to bring him on because Ran is one of the most successful course creators I know. Flux Academy does over $2M/yr in sales with a very small, lean team. And it all started with Ran’s YouTube channel and running workshops at local tech meetups.
You’ll hear about how Ran creates so much video content, how they’ve diversified channels across search, video, and social media, and his approach to course production.
More on Ran:
Sponsored by Riverside — It’s what I use to record both my podcasts, Everything Is Marketing and Default Alive, but I was using Riverside long before they became a sponsor. I used to use Zoom until someone interviewed me using Riverside and I knew I had to switch. I love it because they take local recordings on each side, which gives you a reliable connection and the highest quality audio and video tracks. Separate HD recordings, an iOS app, automatic transcription… It’s made specifically for podcasters. Folks like Guy Raz from How I Built This, Courtland Allen from Indie Hackers, and even Hillary Clinton uses it if you can believe it. Check them out and all the other features they have at riverside.fm
