When you’re choosing the right platform to sell online courses, it’s worth considering marketing as well. Of course, there are multiple things you can do on social media or your own website to sell courses online quicker and to a higher number of people, but wouldn’t it be nice if the platform could offer some tools that make marketing easier or do some promotions on its own behalf?
Of course, it would. That’s why BitDegree does that as well.
One of the tools that can help you sell courses online faster (and earn more!) is promo codes. On BitDegree, you can create one in minutes: just select the course you wish to create a code for in the Instructor Area, then click on Promo Codes and choose the option to create a new code. You can also choose any name you prefer, as long as it follows a few requirements:
You will also need to choose one out of four promo code types – free, lowered price, discount from price, or percentage from price. If you choose to define the discount in an exact sum and not a percentage, remember that it should always be specified in USD. If you wish, you will be able to set a deadline and a number of times the code can be used.
The flexibility you have when creating promo codes on BitDegree provides you with a variety of marketing options:
Share your promo codes on your blogs, websites, social media profiles, business cards… However, remember not to put it anywhere on the platform, including discussions, course materials, and landing pages. It’s a place for education – not promotion.
Promo codes are a great tool BitDegree provides – however, the way you use it to sell courses online still mostly depends on you. Is there a chance to get promoted by BitDegree without putting in any extra effort, though? Actually, there a few:
However, you should always remember that using your own promo codes to sell courses online pays better – you get a higher percentage of the price the learner pays. 99% of it, to be exact: is there any other platform to sell online courses in such a lucrative way?
