Teachable allows you to email existing students, but you cannot use it for marketing outside the Teachable platform.
Instead, you can integrate with and use a third-party provider for email marketing.
- Use Teachable to send out single emails to existing students
- The platform can directly integrate with five third-party emailing platforms
- Use Zapier to connect with other email marketing platforms
Does Teachable Have Email Marketing?
Teachable does have an email feature, but it can only be used to email your existing students. Therefore, you can use email to send your current students offers, upsells, and promotions, but you cannot use it to gain new customers or leads.
It’s also important to point out that Teachable emails cannot be sent out in automated sequences. The only option is to send out a single email at a time.
Finally, Teachable email is not available on the free plan. You must upgrade to a paid plan to access this feature.

Use Zapier for Other Teachable Email Integrations
If you have a third-party email provider in mind that isn’t listed above, Teachable also supports the use of Zapier to connect other platforms.
You will need first to create a Zapier account (there is a free plan or paid plans start from $29.99/month) as well as an account with your chosen email platform. Then, head to Zapier and follow the platform’s instructions for connecting Teachable and your email provider together.
