Evergreen Course

There are two options to set up an Evergreen Course.

Option 1 - Set Up an Evergreen Product using Automations

  1. Create your Product
  2. In your Product, go to the Content tab and link to or create your Membership Site
  3. Add all your content to the Membership Site and Course
  4. Set any Course Modules and Lessons or Pages to Auto-Publish (unless you want them to have immediate access to a certain piece of content - if you want to give them immediate access, set the content to Published)
  5. Load or write all necessary emails in your Email Library 
  6. Create an Automation based on how you want the course delivered. 
    • Steps of the Automation will include
      • Giving access to the Membership Site
      • Auto-publishing Courses or Pages
      • Sending emails (using the emails in your Email Library)
  7. Go back to your Product and in the Content tab add a Trigger to start the Automation

Alternate Option: Create a Dated Evergreen Course

Follow all the same steps above but instead of using general time parameters in your automation, you would use the specific time to the wait steps such as Wait til July 1, 2017.

Note: If it is set up this way and someone joins after the first date specific wait step they will go through all action steps for dates in the past. 

 

Option 2 - Set Up an Evergreen Course using Autoresponders

  1. Create your Product
  2. In your Product, go to the Content tab and link to or create your Membership Site
  3. Add all your content to the Membership Site and Course
  4. Set any Course Modules and Lessons or Pages to Auto-Publish (unless you want them to have immediate access to a certain piece of content - if you want to give them immediate access, set the content to Published)
  5. Repeat for each Module
  6. Load or write all necessary emails as Auto-Responders in your product
  7. Set your Auto-Responder to release their corresponding Auto-published Pages or Modules/Lessons

Alternate Option: Create a Student-Paced Evergreen Product

This is a product in which they don't get the next Module until they have finished the first. See our Guide here.
