We have launched a new and improved Course Search and there are some important changes you need to be aware of. It has a new look and many new features for providers and licensees:
1) Unique Course Registration Website
2) Course Price
3) Provider logo
4) New tags for Unique Course Registration Website and price in the XML file format
You can now enter a unique Course Registration Website for every course you wish to advertise. When a licensee selects to take your course, our Course Search used to take the licensee to the same page for every course you offered. Now, you can have a separate address for every course, so you can take the licensee directly to your registration page. This feature is optional. If you do not enter a Course Registration Website, we will use the Registration Website if one is listed in your Organization Profile. We believe licensees will be much more likely to take your course if they can get to the unique course registration page.
You can now enter a price for all of your courses. Users will be able to sort results by price and eventually may be able to search by price. We believe that this new feature will be helpful to both your business and licensees. This feature is also optional.
When you create a new course, we will now ask you if you want to “Advertise to the Licensee Public?”
For a live course:
For an anytime course:
If you select “Yes” for an anytime course, it will automatically be advertised on the Course Search so you do not have to go back and publish later.
You may now also add price and Unique Course Registration Websites to existing courses or existing publishings. It is very important that you enter the entire URL for the Course Registration Website like the example shown.
Because every course has its own unique page and URL, your courses advertised on our search have a chance of showing up on traditional search engines like Google. The more keywords you include in your course description the better your chances of being found in the traditional search engines.
You can upload your logo from the Organization Profile page and it will be applied automatically to all of your individual courses.
Every course in our search will have its own unique course description page. Here the licensee will get the course details and course description as well as seeing a logo for your company. Licensees will also be able to “Share” the course with their friends on Facebook, Twitter, or by email.
New tags for Course Registration Website and price are now included in the XML file format. Call the Help Desk if you need assistance. 1-877-434-6323
We have also added a new graphic to the Course Search to help clarify a common misconception. Often licensees believe they are taking courses with CE Broker because they are using our Search. We added this graphic when they choose to start a course.
Anything you can do to help educate your customers on our role as the Official Course Search, not as an educational provider, would be greatly appreciated.
We believe that these changes will be a great help to licensees and your business. Please notify us if you have any questions.
