The goal for this week is to create your course sales page and promo video.
Below I’ve included links to great articles explaining best practices to create both your sales page and promo video.
How to create a great course sales page
Your prospect students are not going to buy your course unless they have a good reason to do so.
Your sales page is your best opportunity to explain, seduce, and convince the right students that your course is worth investing in (and to disqualify those prospects who shouldn’t take the course).
Creating a good sales page is an art in itself. It’s the art of copywriting and can take years to master. The best copywriters can charge tens of thousands of dollars to write a sales page.
If you want to do everything yourself, any of the following articles will help you get started on the right path:
- What to Include on Your Online Course Sales Page (Template)
- The Anatomy of a Compelling Course Sales Page (And How to Make One Yourself)
- How To Create A Sales Page For Your First Online Course Or Product
- 6 Steps to Writing Sales Copy that Converts for your Online Course
- An Enormous Guide to Pricing Psychology (Nick Kolenda)
TIP: If you use Google Docs, You can make a direct copy of Thinkific’s course sales page template → HERE.
How to create a great promo video for my course
Although the promo video is not 100% required, it has proven to increase conversions dramatically (I know because for 7 years I’ve been producing professional promo videos for companies).
For your first online course, I don’t recommend going nuts with your promo video.
Keep it short, under 4 minutes, and use the same tools you’ve used to record all your lectures (in my case that’s Keynote, a webcam, and ScreenFlow to record both).
Here are 2 articles explaining how to create a promo video for your online course:
- How To Create A Promo Video For Your Online Course (Thinkific)
- Guide to creating the perfect promo video (Udemy)
If you ever want to take promo video creation to the next level (specifically to promote your business) I have a 10 hour best selling course where I teach everything I’ve learn about promo video creation HERE.
