We are surrounded by free samples. They are at the grocery store, in the mailbox, advertisements, and so many places. Free samples are a powerful marketing tool. They allow the prospective customer to inspect and even build an emotional attachment to a product.
In the release of LifterLMS version 1.4.0, thanks to some feedback from a customer, we added a frictionless free sample lesson feature.
When you mark a lesson as free in either a paid or free course, you are allowing a visitor to access a lesson without having to register or anything. They click the lesson tile that has the free icon on it, and they’re in.
We recommend you mark a couple of your best lessons as free to help drive interest in your course.
