A few weeks ago, we wrote about an opportunity for our readers to check out a free trial being offered by Creativebug as a potential alternative to Craftsy. Many readers partook of this trial offer and we thank everyone who commented and shared their feedback and experiences. Creativebug is a subscription service, so please remember to cancel if you don't want to continue. The first month is free, but they will charge you after that. If you didn't sign up, there is nothing for your to cancel.
When we wrote about this free trial offer, Craftsy had just launched a major “upgrade” to their platform and it didn't seem to be going so well. We were all forced to ask the question whether there was as good alternative to Craftsy?
After a number of our readers have checked out Creativebug, I can say honestly that the feedback has been mixed. Some readers liked the shorter format of the videos on Creativebug and the subscription model. Others prefered the more in-depth lessons from Craftsy and the once-off pricing.
Below are just a few of the comments. I encourage you go back to the original post to have a look through the comments if you're trying to make a buying decision between Creativebug and Craftsy. If you have comments to add, please feel free to do so!
It's really had to say which is the better platform. It does seem that most of our readers definitely seemed to prefer Craftsy. From our perspective, Craftsy seems to have recovered from their recent update issues and now seems to be back on track. We remain fans.
