The basics of marketing your Learn It Live classes
E-mail & Newsletter Marketing
Mention your class(es) to your community via emails and newsletters. This can be the most effective way to drive people who already know you into your programs.
At the bottom of your e-mail signature (and blog posts) place info about your Learn, It Live expert page (with a link). For example:
“Attend my online classes at Learn It Live”
“Meet with me online. Find my classes at Learn It Live”
Social media is one of the most effective channels to get the word out about your upcoming classes and online services. We recommend posting all your classes to Facebook and Twitter, immediately after you create them and in the days leading up to the start. If you have a blog, a quick posting about your class will engage your audience.
Let people know about your class recordings as well. The more people that start attending the more you will get coming back!
Web: Learn It Live will provide you banners to place on your website or Facebook page. Banners can be animated or static and will link to your expert page or classes.
Print: Learn It Live will provide you with cards, flyers, and other printable materials you can use to promote yourself in your community. We have fantastic designers that can help you build your brand. Get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org with a request and we’ll work out the best approach.
During Your Online Class
Your online classes give you the unique opportunity to directly engage and talk with your audience. Make sure to seize this opportunity by preparing an intro and closing slide informing learners of your future classes. At the beginning and end of a free (promo) class, you should also let learners know the extra benefits that come from attending a paid one and ask them to leave feedback and a review (they will receive an email asking for this information).
How To Get Started?

Learn Some Tips and Tricks in Online Training
We want you to be highly successful, and that is why we offer free online training for all experts that we work with. Attend a training to learn some of the more advanced features of Learn It Live and the virtual classroom. Practice by logging into your account and going to “Launch Test Session” under your profile picture.
Create Classes -- Free First (and then paid)
An effective approach at building a learner base in the beginning is to lead one or more free sessions. This helps you to get comfortable with the system, and introduce both existing Learn It Live users to you and your current community to your Learn It Live page.
Promote and Tweak
Get the word out! Let your user base, your friends and your family know, and have them let their friends and contacts know. Get feedback and see what people enjoyed and what they want more of. Experiment with different promotions and topics to find what works best for you.
