Collections allow you to group and sell videos that are meant to be viewed together. Sometimes they might be videos meant to be viewed in order.
Depending on your content, this could be a TV series or an instructional series, or something like a 10 day yoga course.
Within a collection you can add sections to segment your content, we call these dividers. Let's use an example for this, say I'm offering a course on Front-end Web Development, here's what that would look like:
- See the Anatomy of a Basic Website.
- What is HTML?
- What is CSS?
Building Your First WebsitealXK
- Basic Homepage Layout
- Adding Images
- Linking pages
Publishing a Website
- Buying a domain
- Hosting Your Code
- Pointing Your Domain to Your Host
I have 9 videos here and they are sectioned with 3 dividers which gives some needed organization to my course.
Now where Uscreen takes this to another level is with our Drip feature. This allows you to control the release of some videos. If my collection is a 10 day yoga challenge, you can release 1 video a day for 10 days and send an email when each video is released. This creates a sense of progression for the customer and reminds them to keep on with that challenge.
Now, if you're wondering what the difference between collections and categories is... categories are essentially like genres for your content. If you've got a fitness channel, you might organize your videos in categories like lifting, cardio, or nutrition. Definitely have a read over on our category article.
