Engagement Profit FormulaTM

Engagement Profit Formula

Another one of our proven methodologies is the Engagement Profit Formula. This formula consists of several elements that help keep students interacting with their courses. These elements include the following:

  • Gamification - using point scoring, leader boards, and achievements, Gamification gives courses the competitive edge they need to fuel students drive to do better and faster. Digital Badges map out the milestones and goals of a course for a student and create free leads by students sharing their achievements on social media.
  • Dual client pathway algorithm - Lets students learn at the pace they want and automates client accountability. Some courses require people to wait a certain amount of time between lessons of their course. This limits those type A personalities that like to consume vasts amount of information in small bursts. By letting students progress through the modules at the pace they are comfortable with, you allow people with multiple learning styles to use your course.
  • Automated Client Accountability - sends students reminders to keep up with their course work when they fall behind. It’s like that trainer at the gym who always makes sure you do one more set of push-ups. Without the trainer there, the client ends up spending most of their time in the sauna. Automated client accountability is the head looking over your shoulder to make sure you are on track.
  • Reporting - This is a key to creating a friendly user interface for your clients. When ever a client logs into your course website, they should know exactly where they are in terms of completing their courses. By tracking what lessons students stop in or what segment in a video the student stopped at, they are able to seamlessly pop in and out of their courses.
  • Automated Client Accountability - sends students reminders to keep up with theircoursework when they fall behind. It’s like that trainer at the gym who always makessure you do one more set of push-ups. Without the trainer there, the client ends upspending most of their time in the sauna. Automated client accountability is the headlooking over your shoulder to make sure you are on track.
  • Quizzes and Certification - Quizzes create benchmarks to verify students are retaining information. Certification gives student recognition of reaching a certain level of mastery to either practice or teach others in certain subjects, bringing weight credibility to the course.
  • Experience-Based Branching - When you have courses at multiple levels of mastery, it's important to have a way for more experienced learners to differentiate from the novices in a certain subject. Experience-based branching acts as a placement test to make sure that students begin learning from the point that they are taking in the new information they want.

There's no point in building a membership website if it isn't going to put cash in your wallet.

With the Engagement Profit Formula™, you’ll be able to attract more members and keep them engaged and involved in your site so that they stick around and continue paying for longer.

This formula consists of the exact set of products you'll create and pull students through. As students move through the levels, they'll become increasingly more engaged, and your profits will increase.

Apply These Motivational Design Principles to Every Online Course

Let me ask you a question: “Are you a finisher or a quitter? Now be honest here. Think back through your life at all the things you’ve started. Maybe you started college or piano lessons or a diet or an online course. Did you finish? You might be surprised to learn that few people finish what they start. It’s not that they’re bad people or that they don’t have compelling goals. It’s just that somewhere along the way they lose motivation. There’s not enough perceived “reward” to keep them going. At one point or another, every educator, coach, expert, speaker, or thought-leader has struggled with course creation that results in unsuccessful outcomes for learners. The course content may have covered the topic comprehensively; the syllabus probably included a variety of materials and sources, so why didn’t students finish the course they were initially so excited to start?

So, you’ve got a lot invested in the online courses you’re offering … not only the money you’ve put into them but plenty of effort and enthusiasm. You had high hopes and great expectations, but lately … maybe not so much. You’re simply not seeing the results you anticipated.

Use Brain Science to Improve Your Online Courses

I’ve seen more entrepreneurs jumping on the online course bandwagon lately. And, time and time again, most of them make the same mistake. They figure creating an extraordinary course comes down to a mix of business savvy and subject matter expertise. As they have plenty of both, they jump right into course creation without even considering the impact that neuroscience and human psychology have on client retention. Because of this, they often have nothing to show for their hard work but unhappy clients, low completion rates, and reduced profit margins. Luckily, you don’t need to be a doctor in neuroscience to set your students (and business) up for success. You just need to take advantage of the following learning science principles.
