Create a Free Trial


What is a free trial?


Free trials allow users to take selected lessons in a course for free, with no expiration date, no limit to the number of users, and users will be prompted to buy the rest of the course after taking the free trial!


First, select the course

On the left sidebar of the Admin Dashboard, click My Courses. Select the course that you are looking for.  



Create the Course

Click Add Chapter, give the chapter a name, then click Add Content, select a content type, then tick “make this lesson part of the free trial” box.


Here’s what it looks like with a video lesson:

View your free course

If your course has one or more lessons marked to be a part of the free trial, Thinkific will automatically add these two elements to your Course Landing Page:


1) The free trial button




2) The free lessons highlighted in the curriculum




Should you wish you remove the Free Trial at any time all you need to do is make sure that the make this part of the free trial checkbox is unchecked for each piece of content in your course.
