If you present your mini-courses as a series and you would like to guarantee that one has to go with order, in other words, one needs to complete a mini-course before moving on to the next one, this is for you.
There are three possible ways to set an ordered path of mini-courses for your clients, and these methods can be exercised for various purposes including content dripping.
- Presenting your mini-courses in a collection, and starting all the mini-courses in it with password protection walls.
- Presenting the first mini-course only, and revealing the next one at the final card.
- Integrating with mailing platforms and running the process with automations.
Let’s dive in!
1- Presenting your mini-courses in a collection, and starting all the mini-courses in it with password protection walls. #
You can create collections of mini-courses. Click here to learn how.
A collection not only makes your dashboard more organized, but also allows you to present your mini-courses as a bundle, and in an order. If you want to ensure that your audience follows the right order, you can use “password protection” in the beginning of each part. The password will be hidden in the mini-course above.
2- Presenting the first mini-course only, and revealing the next one at the final card. #
Suppose you have a series of mini-courses that should be followed in order, but you don’t want to represent all of them in a collection, as mentioned in the first method. You may want to keep the topics hidden or have another reason not to prefer a collection where the number and titles of the mini-courses will be visible.
In this case, you can share the link of your first mini-course only, and give the share the link of your next mini-course at the final card. Besides, you can create a password for the next one and give it together with the link.
As can be seen above, you can add links to your mini-course as CTAs. Here is a good-to-know hint: you can link your other mini-courses directly on the dashboard, without using URLs. Here is a quick example video on how it’s done.

3- Integrating with mailing platforms and running the process with automations. #
If you’re presenting several mini-courses in order, and collecting emails from your audience at the same time, you may as well prefer to set up integrations with mailing platforms via webhooks.
In this method, it is required to collect emails with a signup wall in each mini-course, set a mailing list for each mini-course and set mail triggers on your mailing tool for eeach mini-course, which can be cumbersome if you offer many mini-courses. However, here are the major steps if you’re interested in it.
- On your first mini-course, add a webhook via a platform like Zapier or Pipedream, and create a workflow which will be triggered by course completion.
- On your webhook platform, connect to your mailing platform and arrange subscription of your audience to a specific mail group (or mail list).
- On your mailing platform, set up a trigger to send a welcome email to the newly added members of that mail group. On that email, there will be the link of your second mini-course and a password to unlock it.
You may continue to build other webhooks for the following mini-courses with these steps.
If you need more examples regarding integrating with a mailing list via webhooks, here is a detailed example tutorial based on Zapier and Mailchimp.
