Sales Widgets give you the potential to promote and sell your online course or community on other websites, with no design or technical experience required!
Sales widgets provide you with the ability to create a button or card that's completely customized to your brand, and easily embed that button or card on a third-party site. Whether it's your blog, social media page, or another channel, sales widgets help you promote your Thinkific page wherever you have an online audience!
Sales widgets cannot currently be embedded on Facebook. If you are marketing your course on Facebook, we recommend sharing a link to your course or site. A preview will automatically be generated by Facebook that will give prospects a look at your product.
