Who are CourseFolk?

CourseFolk is a company carving out a niche in the Influencer industry that hasn't been developed yet, so we have to do a little bit of legwork when it comes to explaining to influencers exactly what we do. But hey, luckily we love our job, so talking about it isn't hard!

Essentially, we're an online course delivery platform, but we're unique because we also have a dedicated and all-round awesome team that works with influencers to write the course, design and promote it. Our courses are across all kinds of niches, from photography to home investment, social media marketing to health and fitness. Our team works to articulate and package their experience, ideas and expertise in a course that helps hundreds of people create real change in their lives.

It's incredibly rewarding work watching a course come to life, and we love what we do!

Where are you based?

We're an online company with a team working around the clock from all over the world... Canada, Australia and Europe. We handpick the Influencers and experts we want to work with, and reach out directly to discuss whether this opportunity is the right fit.
