Offer a free sample or preview of my course
You can definitely create a free sample or preview of your course.
It's a 2-step process: first create a free promo course and invite people into it, then upsell them to the paid course.
Step 1: Create a Free Promo Course
You can create a free course that you offer to your community, to help build interest in your paid course.
You can put as much or as little content as you like into the free course.
If you are on the Up and Comer plan, you can also run events (video webinars or teleconferences) in the free course.
To promote this course, get the sales page or enrollment link from the "Free" Price Point on Pricing tab of the course editor, and share it via your email list, blog, social media, etc.
Step 2: Upsell From the Free Course to Your Paid Course
Once your students have finished your free course, it's time to upsell them to your paid course. You can do this in several ways:
- Include an activity in the free course that describes the paid course. Make sure to have a prominent link to take people over to the sales page for your paid course.
- Send a custom announcement to everyone in the free course, inviting them to the paid course.
- Host a live teleconference or webinar in the free course, and describe the paid course during the event.
