What is the Thinkific interaction card?

The Thinkific interaction card was designed for Thinkific course creators to help them drive online course sales. The card can be programmed to appear at the moment during the sales pitch of your eWebinar when you want attendees to be able to get to your checkout page with one click. Once you link your Thinkific account to eWebinar, your course's name, price, description, and image will automatically populate in the Thinkific interaction card when you create it.

What is the Sync product content feature?

If you want the content in your Thinkific interaction card to stay in sync with your Thinkific account, enable Sync product content. While enabled, you will not be able to edit the product name, price, description, and image shown on the Thinkific interaction card directly. Instead, whatever changes you make to those fields in Thinkific will be synced with and appear on the card automatically.

What is the Thinkific eWebinar template?

The Thinkific eWebinar template was created by Aaron Morin, Customer Education Lead at Thinkific, to teach you, a course creator, how to put together a winning sales pitch for your online course. His simple, five-step presentation structure will help you showcase the value of your course so people go from just thinking about taking it to signing up. Simply upload your own sales video, personalize the content, and start selling right away!

Here are some of the things that have been built into the template:

  • Best practices for selling your course (7-min video)
