How to Sell Online Courses and Memberships with a Free MiniCourse

A free minicourse, when well-designed and properly promoted, is the perfect segue to a enrolling paid students and members.

It’s the opportunity to educate your prospects to the point of readiness for your bigger offering while giving them a great experience with your teaching style and content.

A free minicourse is my best converting lead magnet at Get It Scrapped. What’s more, the people who purchase a membership after going through a free minicourse are more likely to continue with membership renewals.

Creating a mini-course that will attract and convert prospects has several aspects including:

  • topic
  • duration
  • pacing
  • delivery and
  • sales pitch

In this workshop, you’ll get four formats to choose from for developing your mini-course topic as well as the key characteristics to include with any mini-course.

With the topic developed, you can use the quick and easy approaches in the class to:

  • give your minicourse a visual presence, and
  • set up ungated delivery that ensures your students are going through the materials,
  • implement an evergreen funnel for delivering your minicourse and segueing into an offer for your paid course or membership.

You’ll get a complete funnel how-to for using your minicourse as a list builder and as a sales tool. I’ll walk you through all the landing pages you need to create, the best tools for this work, and the email sequences that deliver your course and sell with it.
