SQUIRRELL!!! How to Keep Learners Engaged in a World Filled With Shiny Objects

Webinar • Tuesday, October 26, 2021 • 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET | Qualifies for 1 CAE


Learners sign up for your association’s online courses full of enthusiasm. Then it happens: SQUIRREL! They get distracted and fail to complete the program. Sometimes so many “shiny objects” intervene they never get around to even starting the class.

Members miss out on valuable certifications. Your association misses out on non-dues revenue. It’s your job to stop that from happening.

This webinar helps you succeed—showing you how to use existing tools to keep learners engaged despite a world of shiny objects.

In this one-hour webinar, member loyalty expert Heather McNair presents strategies for keeping learners engaged. From getting the right candidates to raise their hands, to motivating them to start and finish online programs, you’ll learn best practices for increasing successful certifications.

Learn to build journeys that also build revenues. Discover whether you’re unknowingly creating obstacles that cause people to drop out along the way. Also learn what analytics to track —with tools your association probably already has. You can also ask your questions during the webinar.

  • How to identify the best journeys to keep learners engaged (i.e., high abandonment and high potential)
