How to add coupons and deals to your online course sales?
Once you’ve got your course available online for others to buy, you’ll want to offer some deals or coupons, at least sometimes.
Most online course platforms support some form of coupons or deals.
Today, we’re going to show you how to add deals and coupons to your course on Click eCourse.
What kinds of coupons and deals can you create?
On Click eCourse, you can create a number of different deals and coupons.
Deals are a special price or a percentage off that visitor will automatically be shown if they are in the proper time frame of the deal.
A deal can have an optional start & end date and can also have maximum uses as well as frequency expiry special treatment.
For example, you can create a deal like these:
- Create a deal that expires on a certain date
- Create a deal that only starts in future and ends on certain date after that
- Create a deal that can be used only X number of times to buy course
- Create a weekly deal that expires on a specific day of the week at a specific time but repeats the week after until a certain date
- Create a daily deal that expires every day at a specific time but repeats the next day until a certain date
Coupons in contrast are not visible to users unless they know the coupon name or link.
Coupons also an either be a special price or a percentage off.
A coupon can be set to start & end of a specific date & time and can have a maximum use count.
For example, you can create a coupon like:
- Create a coupon with a specific price
- Create a coupon with a specific percentage off of the regular price.
- Create a coupon with better price with maximum uses
- Create a coupon that is only valid between two dates/times
- Create a coupon to give your course away for free
As you can see, you have lots of options
BTW, you can name your coupon anything you want and it can even be the same name as other courses – they just have to be unique for your course.
