A drip course is when you set a delivery schedule for the content within your online course. This means your customers can only access certain parts of your course until it's unlocked.
As your customers progress through the online course, content gets delivered to them, and eventually, they’ll have access to the full online course.
One caveat on dripped course content:
Note that the sequence set up when customers purchase will be the one they're locked into. If you make any changes or modifications to the dripped sections, this will only impact future enrollees.
As you can see, your customers will be able to preview the title of all of the content within the upcoming section, and keep track of the delivery schedule via the countdown clock above it.
This is a great way for your customers to focus on one course module at a time, while still planning for what’s to come.
Step 1: Add or edit a section of your online course
You'll find the Drip settings when creating or editing a section:
Step 2: Setting up a drip course on Podia
First, you want to select the drip schedule for each section (located within the top headline):
To make things super easy, everything has been contained within one block, so you don’t have to click away to another page just to set things up.
Step 3: Create an email
We also recommend you create an email to go along with each section, so your customers will get notified when the section is available to them (this is currently a default setting, but you can turn it off).
At the bottom of the email, we’ll include a link directly to the current online course section, but if you’d like to copy and paste the link into the body of your email, you can do that too (click on “Copy section link” in the bottom right corner).
How can I set a drip on a certain date?
In addition to having drip delays properly set up before customers purchase, make sure you have a start date in place as well. That will kickstart the first section to open on the set start date 🎉
