How To Use Searchie For Your Digital Course Or Membership Site
It’s no secret that many businesses are shifting part – or in some cases, all of their business – to an online structure to keep with the times. Businesses in all sorts of markets are going digital.
One that’s picking up steam with no ceiling in sight is the knowledge industry. People are creating online courses, memberships, coaching programs and so much more. They’re taking their knowledge, know-how and expertise, and selling it online.
In a digital landscape that is constantly evolving, how do you stand out from the crowd?
Not only that, how are you going to package and deliver your digital course or membership so that you can future proof it for growth?
How can you keep your audience engaged and consuming the content you’ve created?
And, how are you going to know that people are actually making progress and having success with what you teach?
Searchie Hubs make it easy to deliver a customized content experience so that you can better serve your clients. You can make the process seamless, from registration and payment to dripping new content out to your students and members so that you don’t overwhelm them.
We’re spilling the tea, with Searchie Hubs you can create a tailored digital course or membership experience, while saving a ton of time and resources for your business.
And we’ll show you how…
If you’re new to Searchie, welcome my friend!
First thing you need to know is that Searchie is the world’s first search engine for your video content. You can upload, manage and store your online video in Searchie, and then share your video content anywhere.
Some people call us a video hosting platform, others a transcription service, and some think we’re just a cool way to search through your audio and video content.
Well, we’re all that and then some. Let us explain…
Searchie is super easy and beginner-friendly with drag-and-drop features. Once you upload content or pull it in from different sources, it’s super simple to grab audio or video content from your Searchie library and create a seamless content experience without having to hire an expensive developer.
Not a techie. No problem.
Searchie Hubs allow you to easily package and deliver your free or paid content online, like a course or membership.
Create your online course or membership in 3 simple steps. A little bit of work for some pretty major results. Just take a look at Membership Expert, Stu McLaren, he’s using Searchie Hubs for his membership.
Imagine just three simple steps to have your course or membership up and running less time that it takes to do a load of laundry.
Step 1: Upload Video Content
Upload video files directly or integrate with one of our many partners, like Facebook, Zoom Pro, Dropbox, Vimeo and more. Connect your account so that when you create and/or publish video content on any of those platforms, it’s automatically pulled into your Searchie library.
Let’s pause to take that in. Connect once. Automatically pulled into your Searchie library… every time.
It gets better, keep reading.
Create Original Content
What’s more original than YOU?
Use the Searchie Chrome Extension to capture your screen or record with your webcam, and share your video message with just a couple of clicks. The camera window can now be resized and moved around your screen too.
If you’re thinking “What is the Searchie Chrome Extension?”, read that article super quick – we got bigger fish to fry here.
If you’re skipping that article, the main thing you need to know is that it makes sending video messages, updates or walking a client through a new product a BREEZE.
Step 2: Design Your Searchie Hub
Designing your first Hub is easy, no coding required or background in computer sciences.
The Searchie Toolbox has great training resources to help you with visualizing your Hub.
But, this is the jist of what you’ll need to do: Upload your logo, customize the colors and fonts, and then use our drag-and-drop feature to build out your digital course or membership.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not! Trust us on that one.
Searchie x Canva
You won’t be needing a graphic designer to make your Searchie Hub a thing of beauty.
If you’ve used Canva before, you know just how easy it is to whip up something so eye-catching and so glorious that instantly makes you feel like a modern day digital Picasso.
And that’s why we’ve made it so that you can use Canva right inside the Searchie app.
The Searchie Canva integration makes it easy to customize your Hub with tailored thumbnails and graphics. The integration allows users with preexisting Canva accounts to access their designs and upload to their Hub directly.
Users can also design right inside a Searchie Hub!
There’s a big button that says ‘Canva’, but in case you miss it, this help article will point you to where it resides. Come to think of it, we wrote an entire blog on Searchie + Canva – head over there, too.
Step 3: Deliver Your Digital Course Or Membership
Now that you’ve wrapped up your course or membership, it’s time to put a bow on it and send it out the world. Your audience needs to see your masterpiece!
Share your content by inviting your clients and customers to a secure and private members area. You’ve worked hard to gain all of your knowledge and expertise, so keep it locked down for your members eyes only.
If you feel like sharing a teaser, you can always create a public Hub or allow access to a private Hub.
Embedding In Your Existing Platform
If you’ve already done the hard work of making a website or landing pages, we won’t put more on your plate. Add Playlists, Widgets and Video Players to your platform in a few clicks.
Simply grab the embed code for the media file you’d like to share, copy, and paste. It takes all of about… 7 seconds?
We aren’t kidding when we say Searchie is the fastest way to manage, package and share your video content.
Membership Levels: Who Gets To See What
If you have multiple membership levels, you’ll likely want to set search restrictions in Widgets so that your basic level members can’t see the same content as your masterclass members.
Using Audience Tags, you can drip content to your audience as it’s released. This article will show you just how.
