Understanding how to market business training courses isn’t as hard as many people think. To promote your courses, you need to dive in and learn the key aspects of successful promotion.

You don’t want your courses to end up with unfilled places, do you?

To increase your chances of attracting potential students for your courses, use one of the best marketing tools of this digital age — video. A short promo video will help you quickly introduce the key topics covered in your courses and what value it will bring to the participants.

Before creating your video, prepare all your sales and marketing materials that can help you present the value of your courses and write your video script. Then, pick an online video maker tool and start creating your video online.

Have no idea how you can create one? Creating a compelling promotional video with Renderforest is something you should give a try.

Check out this promo for business training courses, created with one of our customizable video templates.

To create a similar promo video for your business training courses, follow the steps in this tutorial. After signing up or signing in to your account, click “Create video” from the navigation menu. You can look through our large collection of templates, watch their quick previews and choose the one you like most, or find exactly what you need, using our advanced search filters.

Once you choose the template, click “Create now” to start. We've used the “Clean Typography Pack” template for our video above.

You'll be offered two options to create your video: use our ready-made presets or create a completely new video by selecting the scenes manually.

If you decide to use one of our presets, click on “Load a preset” and check them out to find the perfect match.

We’ve used the Business Management Training Courses preset to create the video above. In case you want to use the same one, click on “Use ready story” and adjust the scenes with your media files, descriptions, and music.

However, if you want to create your project by selecting the scenes manually, click on “Add scene” and choose the scenes of your video from the list. This template offers six scene categories: text holders, video placeholders, photo holders, logo animations, contact forms, checkmarks, and x-marks. Select all the necessary scenes and click "Insert" to add them to your project.

The scenes on your timeline are flexible, so you can delete, duplicate, replace, or move them back and forth, as well as add new ones, if necessary.

To add your text in the text holders, click on their respective fields, type in or paste your text, and click "Save and close" to confirm the changes. The “Snapshot” feature under your scene shows how it will look in the video, so you can preview the scenes, before moving on.

There are several ways for you to add images or videos to your project: add your image or video URL, upload them from your device, or pick an already uploaded file from your "Media library".

Once you add your image with one of the mentioned methods, you'll be able to crop it to match the frame size of the image holder. There is an option for you to rotate, zoom in, or apply our filters to your images.

The added videos can be trimmed or muted right in the editor as well, so you don't have to do the job beforehand.
