Just because your online courses and free challenges are hosted off of your website does not mean that you should lose data on the customers and traffic that are accessing them – especially if you have advertising driving traffic straight to them. Hosting your courses on a platform such as Thinkific also doesn’t mean that you forget about SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).
