    Bundles, as the name would suggest, are packages of several courses that are offered together as to provide single, comprehensive training solution. By packaging courses together in this way, you can provide a training option that covers an overarching concept or theme. As a Content Specialist, one question that often comes my way is, “how can I, as a seller, market my material better on the OpenSesame marketplace?”. There are several different tactics you can employ in this endeavor. That said, one of the quickest and easiest of these techniques to accomplish is course bundling.

I’m sure people manage that, even a few people I know, but I have no clue how to pull that off myself.
