Promotional Video

Hi, is it possible to launch your course without a Promotional Video first, and then add in a Promotional Video some time after (post initial launch)?

Yes @UltimateMasters , your first introduction video will be your promotional video whilst you create a specific promo.

Thanks Sharon for the swift reply.


Does that mean I can upload my Promo Video at some time after ?

Hey @UltimateMasters, definitely. You can update your promo video at any time. Smiley Happy

Thank you for this light Abbie 

I would not be in a hurry to publish your course without a promo video. When people visit your course they are going to see a video, which will be your first video, and that will promote or turn away potential students. The truth is that in the first ten or twenty seconds of watching the first video, students make a decision, to either look for something else, or to study your course further.  You don't have a choice about that. 


There is no point in publishing a course without thinking through what attracts a student. Otherwise you are wasting your time.
