Solutions

Increasing free LIVE class attendance with contextual learner engagement campaigns

Aakash Digital’s primary goal is to attract interested prospects and convert them into leads. To generate more leads and drive product usage, they adopted a Freemium model in which they offer free demo live classes to learners who sign up on the app. Now, the team at Aakash Digital wanted to ensure that learners complete the free trial class and don’t abandon it midway. To solve this, the Customer Success Manager (CSM) at WebEngage suggested an action-based communication approach using the WebEngage Journey Designer. 

Maximizing paid course registrations through personalized recommendations

Once the learner installs the Aakash Digital mobile app, the learner enjoys a 7-day free app trial period. During the trial period, the learner can enroll in LIVE classes; access pre-recorded classes and other study material available on the app. Once the trial period is over, the learner is expected to upgrade to the premium subscription to access the required study material continually. 

To encourage learners to upgrade their subscriptions, the team at Aakash Digital has created an app engagement journey on the WebEngage dashboard. Using this journey, the learners are nurtured with contextual, hyper-personalized, and timely communication across multiple channels.

Results

With the help of data-backed, targeted, and hyper-personalized learner communication, the team at Aakash Digital has been able to achieve significant results!
