BTSPro - Total Course Admin Services
Do you enjoy presenting, but don't have the time, inclination or infrastructure for all the admin and marketing of your event?
With lots of events on offer, you can have a great event, fantastic probably, but getting bottoms on seats can be tough in today's education market. Having a good event is one skillset, but having enrolees attend is a completely different skillset.
The common reasons most cited by other presenters when deciding to use AAP Education's course hosting services are;
- Lack of a proven database to market their course
- Not wanting the added load of accreditation paperwork, budgets or repeat external assessments
- Wanting someone else to do all the marketing, administration, bookings and arrangements so they can concentrate on providing quality content
- Inhibited by the high cost of advertising to prospective audience
- Not having a comprehensive, secure and registered website, allowing 24/7 access to course and presenter information and enrolment
- No local market knowledge or contacts
AAP Education has your solution. Our turnkey service is called BTSPro because all the work is done, Behind The Scenes. We have been conducting courses for nearly 20 years and have learnt the only way - by experience!
Benefits of Using BTSPro
We provide three service options; Basic, BYO and Premium. Download your copy of the BTSPro Service Guide.
The Basic service provides you with a free listing of your event on the AAP Education website, which is regularly searched and accessed by the 4500+ members and others searching for quality PD. Your course will be available via the Search Events module and also the Upcoming Events modules.
Your event listing includes;
- Event title
- Date and start and finish times
- Short event description and
- Url to link back to your event webpage. When prospective clients click on the 'Register' button, they will automatically be directed to your sales/lead/landing page. If you don't have a website/shopping cart, then you can utilise our BTSPro Premium or BTSPro BYO services.
You can list your event in three easy steps.
- Step 1. Create a username and password for the AAP Education site (top right hand corner 'Log In').
- Step 2. Email AAP Education Clinical Director explaining what you are planning to do. If your event is appropriate, access to submitting your event will be facilitated.
- Step 3. Details will then be provided on how you can start to upload your event(s) details.
Our BYO service is designed for those presenters that would like to access AAP Education's advertising, marketing, web listing, certificate printing and 24/7 secure portal to launch their event.
