Promo Video question

Go to solution

What's the difference between the promo video and the introductory video? Or are they the same thing?  Thanks.

Your promo video is what students get to see first before they buy your course, it's optional but highly recommended. I'm not sure what the intro video is specifically but my first video in my courses is quick intro about who I am, my credentials, and why I'm the right person to teach them. That's part of my course, and I usually make it available as a free preview but you don't have to.

Thanks. So what you put in your first video is what I'm reading is supposed to be part of the promo video. Do you repeat information or how are they different?  Thanks.

The promo video contains different material for me, such as what the student will find interesting, why they should buy the course. It's really a marketing piece: me trying to sell them my course. 

The intro is geared towards students who already know they want to be in the course. So it tells them what I will cover during the course (I tell them what each section is) and I tell them a little bit about myself. That's where I start creating the personal connection with the student. I'm no longer the salesman (I'm terrible at that anyway) from the promo, I'm the professor.

Thank you!

I had the same question.  They seem redundant.
