To drip or not to drip?

If you've been creating (or taking) online courses for a while, you're probably familiar with the drip vs self-paced conversation: are drip courses more effective than self-paced courses for learning?

The motivation for this age-old question comes from self-paced courses: they have notoriously low completion rates.

Only 10% of your students completing your self-paced course? Yep, that's not unusual.

But do completion results improve with a drip course? 🤔

  3. Always keep it real (what the kids call “keeping it 100”)

What the heck do these rules have to do with email courses? I'll explain at the end of this post. For now, let’s talk about my misadventures with Mailchimp and how it can help you.
