Great Content for Creatives

What do you like best?

I love how many different classes that Creative Live offers. They bring in big name professionals that are personable and have no problem sharing their wealth of information with people who are willing to learn.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I personally don't like about it is that there is some adult material (creative nude posing/boudoir posing) that is available to anyone who is logged in to their account. I think that while it is still an art form, there should be some filtering available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think this site is perfect for anyone looking to increase their knowledge of any creative product or to learn new skills.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I currently use this to increase my knowledge of photography and lighting for my photography business. I find that they are using the current trends which helps me connect with what clients would want.

Disappointing.

What do you like best?

CreativeLive literally offers courses for anyone interested in expanding their creativity and unleashing their full potential as artists, photographers, entrepreneurs, business professionals, musicians or craftsmen. Moreover, individuals who aren't prepared to commit financially to a course can watch live, free workshops from professionals all over the globe.

What do you dislike?

CreativeLive charges students per class, rather than per month. While this may benefit those who are looking to target a specific topic, this may be ideal; however, with classes starting at more than $20, taking multiple classes can get pretty pricy. Because CreativeLive charges by the class, rather than a monthly subscription, they offer no refunds on paid classes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

CreativeLive could improve in three major ways:

1. Offer some type of subscription service for customers to gain greater access for less money.

2. Provide some type of refund for that service should customers not find courses satisfactory.

3. Create more accessible customer support channels for customers facing issues with the service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Training at a low cost.

A great site for online creative courses

What do you like best?

A large selection of courses mainly in subject related to photography. Courses are free to watch while they are streamed live and you can also interact with the viewers or ask the lecturer questions.

Quality of the courses I've watched was high and the pace is easy to follow.

You have the ability to purchase courses to be able to re-watch at your own time, they have many sales, so the price is reasonable.

Courses are for all levels of users, but as a beginner, I've learnt a lot from them.

You can RSVP for future courses and be reminded when they are live.

What do you dislike?

Since they are based on the west coast of the USA course hours are not suited for people in other parts of the world if you want to watch the live stream (however, they do stream it in a loop for a day of so, but there is no interaction with viewers/lecturer)

Some courses were not as good as the majority, mainly due to the lecturer and not the material.

No app for android, but you can still watch it on mobile (they do have an iOS app)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Watch a few courses on subjects that interests you, it is free and no need to register for casual viewing

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great for someone who it beginning in photography.

You can watch for free, so no reason not to try, you can purchase if you need to rewatch at your own pace.

Want to learn something new? This is the go-to place to jump start a new skill.

What do you like best?

The variety of courses and different categories of skills is something that is pretty impressive. Aside from the known speakers, it's a very good place to learn more about your favorite mentors and how they work.

What do you dislike?

Some courses don't really teach you anything. It's a lot of talking and no substance, no takeaway you can put into practice. Some courses are worth their purchase while others are better off just searching for videos on Youtube.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really evaluate whether you need a specific course before buying it. Some courses are put on sale regularly and will avoid you from getting ripped off for a course that doesn't really teach you anything.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Not knowing certain skills or certain tools and being able to log in and learn something new in a couple of minutes.

A Great Place To Learn

What do you like best?

I love that they offer affordable online classes. Once you purchase a course it is yours to keep. They also offer a variety of classes.

What do you dislike?

I don't really know if there is anything, in particular, I dislike about it. It is reasonably priced and available right away.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to learn how to take better photos, edit photos and videos, or all around just want to hone your creative craft, this is a great place to look into. Courses can start at $21.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Working at a church we get a lot of volunteers who want to be apart of different creative teams, including photography, videography, marketing, and creative development. These courses allow us to train even the most amateur volunteers on how to do a great job!

Amazing learning tool for Photographers!

What do you like best?

I love CreativeLive because you get access to free videos! You have to watch it live in order to get them free, but they will replay it all day long so you have more than just one chance to watch.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how expensive their classes are if you want to get the bonus materials or if you want to watch it anytime you want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you watch LIVE, you get to watch for free! They will replay the content all day so you get more than one chance to watch the days videos. If you purchase a class, the get the bonus content and you can watch the videos any time you want, pause, skip around, whatever. There are so many videos to learn from!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have a photography business and I have learned so much from CreativeLive! There are usually around 6 live videos per day, so there's just so much to learn all the time. I have actually purchased one class from here and it is very helpful to be able to pause and go back to the content whenever I want. These videos aren't just quick little filler videos that don't teach you anything, there are usually 6+ hours of video to watch! You get to watch the instructor actually do live photo shoots so you can see how everything they teach is implemented. It has really made me a stronger photographer and helped me with my business.
