13 Ways To Build Your Businesses

Tools To Upsell, Refer, Promote & Grow


1. Build Non-Accredited Courses Fast

Example: A Fitness Training Provider has developed a large range of non-accredited short courses (1-3 exams in 1 unit) offered as inexpensive auto assessed units with auto enrolment and payment, no USI or AVETMISS needs and zero human intervention (other than certificate issuance).  The content is derived from aspects of its accredited training courses and is offered automatically as ‘Free’ to accredited course students as an upsell and also to the public, with reduced price offers into accredited courses on completion.  The result is income from the public course and effectively ‘free’ marketing into accredited courses, a win on both sides.


2. Run Multiple RTO's

For owners of multiple training businesses, Vasto offers multi portal access and group consolidated pricing.  Packages are based on number of administrators across your portals and annualised total student enrolments. 


3. Use Vouchers

Vasto vouchers can be used for existing and new students. You can apply vouchers by email, Vasto messager, on your website (attached to graphics), in your Enews campaigns, inside course completion fields, after completion and more.   Voucher options include:

Vasto pricing options means you have the flexibility for 4 pricing levels, percentage discounts and FREE option.

5. Single Enrolment Bundles

A course bundle is a group of two or more elements (can be courses, units of combo of courses and units), that are offered as a package for students to enrol into with a single payment transaction. This provides the opportunity to up-sell and cross sell and includes bundle level special pricing.
