So you have decided to take your course bookings online. Here are some important features you’ll need to make sure you’re choosing the right course booking software for your company.

How can you use course booking software to increase your course bookings? What can you do to sell more courses? Use a course booking system like Coursedate and you get two big benefits
Getting your courses online and open for bookings is easy with Coursedate. Let's take a quick look at what's involved.
Coursedate will save you time. We've designed Coursedate so you spend less time on the back-office admin of both your course directory and course bookings.
Coursedate is integrated with Google Analytics - potentially a big benefit for course providers and training companies that want to find out more about visitor behaviour and course catalog performance.
Publishing courses with Coursedate is quick. Give your course a title, set some basic parameters, add a description and then publish it to the web. The longest part of the job is writing a good course description.
Here are some quick social media wins - fast, low cost things you can do to pull in more visits to your course pages on Coursedate. They are easy to implement and more course page visits should convert into more enrolments.
Why university short course providers should use Coursedate to promote courses and increase enrolments
Coursedate makes it easier for university short course providers to reach a wider audience, increase course enrolments and streamline back office admin.
The KES Language College in Sheffield is now using Coursedate to publish its course directory and take online bookings.
Customer relationship management systems are designed to make it easier to collect and manage information about customers - the products and services they buy, the enquiries they make and what happens when you contact them.
Social media is a fast and inexpensive way to connect directly with your target audience and eventually recruit more learners. With a bit of content creativity and a bit of effort, you can build a relationship with a loyal group of followers who will then provide a steady stream of repeat business.
A central goal in the design of Coursedate is to build in features that will make it easier for training and course providers to find and enrol more learners.
There are some simple things you can do to promote your courses and increase bookings/enrolments. They are not complicated and most are based on things we can learn from successful sites like Amazon or YouTube.
One of the big benefits of an online course booking system is that it automatically organises your data. You build up a central database of information about course views, enquiries and bookings.
An online course booking system is a great way to promote your courses, find more learners, handle enquiries and take enrolments. There are good reasons why even a smaller course or training provider should think about switching to an online booking system.
