Offering Coupons and Discounts this Holiday Season
Black Friday is fast approaching and many eCommerce outlets will be offering special deals and discounts. There are numerous benefits to offering coupons and discounts on your LearnDash site. A great time to offer special promotions and limited-time discounts is the holiday season. This Black Friday is projected to bring in around $17 billion and Cyber Monday is projected to bring in over $11 billion according to Podia.com.
Offering coupons and discounts give the customer the sense they’re receiving a deal. Making the promotion a limited-time offer promotes a sense of urgency the customer should act before it’s too late. Big Commerce states 63% of shoppers want coupons to be more available, showing the importance of giving incentives to potential customers.

A great way to entice shoppers with your LearnDash courses is by offering them a special discount or coupon code. Utilizing our Coupons for LearnDash plugin, easily allows you to offer limited-time discounts. The benefits of offering special coupons to your LearnDash site can greatly increase your chances of your courses being bought.
Adding a New Coupon

Next, give your coupon a title. The title of your coupon will be what buyers will input to receive their discount.
