We all know that creating our courses is a HUGELY important variable to our success here on Teachable – but it doesn’t stop there…
It’s very imperative that we optimize our sales page (in addition to our created courses).
But how do we do this?
It’s actually not as hard as you think. And over the last 6-7 Months BrandBlast has spent here on Teachable (where we host our University) we’ve learned quite a bit about how to optimize our courses. (Specifically our course sales pages…)
Because we’ve successfully published (and are selling) over 50+ Courses here; we feel as though we have a bit of information that other Teachable Teachers can utilize to grow their schools and (even) their revenue.
We also have an awesome FREE Landing Page Checklist you can download (absolutely free) right now to better optimize your sales pages!
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, right? Wrong.
Though it’s something we’re taught not to do since childhood – we still judge the look of things in association to the quality of said thing.
Your course / school is no different. And in fact; over 73.9% of our enrolled students (when asked via Email Survey) said they associated the value of our University to the look and production of the:
- Sales Page Formatting
- Graphics on Sales Page
- Call to Action Format
- If It Had a Sales Video (which we’ll talk about in just a moment)
Here are a Few Examples of Great Course Graphics (otherwise known as a thumbnail):

2. Sales Page Copy (Text)
Now we know that readers need to be hooked into wanting something – you have to make it ‘worth their while’.
And you can achieve this by effectively wording your sales page’s copy.
Inserting a healthy dose of keywords – brightly colored words – even outbound links to bring them to more (free) content.
(we won’t cover it in depth here; but there is an unspoken bond between readers associating your brand with value. You can achieve this by giving them FREE content FIRST. Then ‘Right Hooking Them’ with a Paid offer later)
A general rule of thumb is; the more effectively worded (and pretty looking) your sales page is – regardless of the actual value of the product – the product typically sells.
That’s not to say you should try to sell garbage with a bow on it – more so to pay just as much attention to the look and feel of your sales page AS YOU DID creating the actual course.
