Tired of using Canva and other design tools to create individual digital certificates after hosting a program or a webinar? We’ve got the perfect solution for you.
Nothing wastes time like editing and manually sending out certificates does. Often the design and editing tools fail to make it easier for you to create certificates digitally. Nor do they ensure secured access or a simpler way to send certificates on a large scale.
Virtualbadge.io lets you create valid digital certificates and mail them in one click. Choose from various templates for quicker designing or design a certificate from scratch if you’re feeling creative.
What’s more? Virtualbadge.io offers a streamlined approach to certificate management using its intuitive dashboard. This makes it easy for your recipients to share their certificates, thereby increasing your online visibility.
So, here’s a hands-on guide to help you to create a captivating digital certificate with the leading certificate generation tool.
Want to try it out yourself?
You get a 7-day all-access free trial. Access it here.
With a single Virtualbadge.io dashboard, you can create new certificates, manage them, and view certificate statistics, such as the number of certificates claimed, shared, or downloaded. You can also check the number of emails opened or clicked on.
So the dashboard provides a bird's eye view of your entire collection of certificates and usage reports.
Suppose you have multiple certificates, you can easily group them under the Certificate Collections option. Otherwise, the completed or in-progress certificates appear under Ungrouped Certificates.
Further, click on the Active tab to find the unsent and saved certificates or the Draft tab to find auto-saved in-progress certificates.
To begin, click Create new Certificate on the top right corner of your dashboard. This action opens the editing page:
Virtualbadge.io takes you through a super simple 3-step certificate creation process:
Need to create certificates in a jiffy? Choose from a wide range of pre-made certificate templates or create your own from scratch. Virtualbadge.io gives you two such options: start with a blank canvas or use an existing template.
If you choose a pre-filled certificate template, you can fine-tune the design using the elements on the left pane of the editing page. Just select any element on your template, and edit the details on the right pane.
Optionally, if you choose to start with a blank canvas, select your desired elements on the left pane and start adding them to your canvas. You can add any number of text fields, a custom signature, your own backgrounds, pictures, custom shapes, and more.
Once you're done designing the certificate, click on Save to proceed.
Here’s a sample ready-to-send digital certificate designed with Virtualbadge.io:
You now have your digital certificate ready to be sent, but does the number of recipients overwhelm you? Virtualbadge.io has a great solution for you.
Set up an email or a social media campaign in under two minutes to send and share your certificates with any number of recipients.
Under the Campaign Setup option below Certificate Settings, you can find an auto-generated email with editable content. On the right pane under Email Content, you can edit the content, like the subject line and body. And under Style, you can choose one of three email appearance formats.
You now have a personalized email ready to be sent to your certificate awardees. Once done, click on Continue.
You can optionally create a social media campaign for Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook. This will help boost your online reputation, as Virtualbadge.io makes it easy for your recipients to share their certifications online.
To enable this, enter the post details under Post Text and add your institute's or program’s hashtags for more reach. Click on Continue to proceed.
Worried about your certification being illegally forwarded or misused? Virtualbadge.io auto-creates a unique Credential ID for every digital certificate in the final stage of the campaign setup:
It’s now time to send your certificates out by emailing each of them. You can send them at the click of a button, with zero email re-edits, and add recipients at once.
Create a CSV file with recipients’ names and email addresses and upload it, or you can also add your recipients’ email addresses line by line by clicking on Add single.
If you’re unsure about what to enter in your CSV file, click on download sample to validate.
Once you’ve added the recipients’ email addresses, click Send emails to send the certificate access email instantly.
Virtualbadge.io integrates with Zapier to let you automate sending certificates as soon as your hosted event or a student program is finished.
You can create a Zap on your Zapier account so that when an action (such as an event completion) is triggered, your completed certificates are automatically sent out to the designated list.
Note: You need a Virtualbadge.io Pro account to use this automation.
Virtualbadge.io has an excellent solution for secured access to avoid your certificate being forged and misused by unauthorized users that might tarnish your brand or institute’s image.
Here’s how it’s done - as soon as your recipient receives the access email, they can click on Get Certificate to be redirected to the access page.
Also, they can claim their certificates via email by clicking on Verify with email to proceed with a security code. Once successfully verified, they can access, share or download their digital certificate safely.
Congratulations! You’ve created and sent out a digital certificate in under 15 minutes.
