How to collect course reviews from students

Students are bombarded with online courses all the time. To truly stand out, all you have to do is just showcase social proof which would showcase your course reviews

People buy from people. The same applies to courses that educate students as well

The more social proof you have on your website which displays success stories & how students benefitted from your course, the easier it is to convince new customers & boost your course sales

Steps to collect course reviews from students

While breaking the ice with your students might seem a difficult task, it gets much easier when you have an automation place. Let's see how we can set that up

#1. Setup a testimonial collection page

You can use Famewall to set up a testimonial collection page on which you can customize the prompts you'd like to ask your students & make it easy for them to provide a testimonial

Here's what a sample testimonial collection page would look like -> Famewall's Collection Page

#2. Send the collection page link to your students via email

The easiest way would be to just ask! You might be having a set of students who have already purchased your course so just contacting them would be the first step in such cases

Politely asking your customers for a testimonial email will work wonders!

Here's an email template used by one of our customers who has a project-building course & they use this template to ask for testimonials from their students

Hey {{name}},

First, I want to thank you again for buying {{course_name}}.

This course was created for data professionals like you who want to take their career to the next level with their portfolio without spending hours of searching.

I love hearing success stories from folks like you who use  {{course_name}} to help build amazing projects.
As much as I love talking about my students' successes, it means so much more when it comes straight from you, as someone who is currently building projects. This is where YOUR SUCCESS STORY can give other data practitioners hope!

Would you be willing to inspire others who are facing similar challenges that you did a short time ago?

Writing a short testimonial (Place 1 - insert famewall collection page link) about {{course_name}} would let other hopeful Project Builders know how it gave you the tools and confidence to build awesome projects.

I'd really appreciate that. And I KNOW others would enjoy knowing how you did it too.
If you could write a testimonial (Place 2- insert famewall collection page link) in the next 5 days, that would be awesome.
I'm truly grateful that you placed your trust in me. I don't take that for granted.
Thank you!
