On what led to the birth of the platform, Obi disclosed that she observed that Nigeria had no stake in the global online course industry, which according to her worth over $170 billion.
She said, “After working with over 200 women to create their online courses, we noticed a trend – The Tech! The tech is very scary. It is overwhelming and many times people feel stuck and disappointed. Many of them wanted to impact lives but they gave up because of the tech. We saw them struggling which was hard to watch so we decided to help them make it easier.”
“To date, this online course still attracts customers and I now help other entrepreneurs to turn their knowledge into profitable online courses. I, however, discovered that they were struggling with the tech, and this is why I launched TrainQuarters to make it easy for them.
“From creating, marketing and selling courses to building a website, email list, blogpost hosting, etc. while taking away the stress and extra costs of going through a time-consuming process, the platform is said to contain everything needed to launch an online course.”
According to her, the all-in-one platform grants users access to online courses at a discounted rate – rather than paying for different platforms – along with the assistance of the support team to enlighten and guide one through the process.
