women working at computers women working at computers

Creating your online course is only half of the battle, you also need to entice people to buy. You can do this through a clever marketing strategy, a series of webinars, or targeted emails to your audience. No matter what method you choose, the one thing all marketing efforts have in common is that they drive traffic to your sales pages.

Your Teachable sales page is so important in your online business because it’s the final thing standing between your potential customers and your online course. Your sales page can really make or break sales for you, so it’s something you’re going to want to get right.

Elements of a beautiful sales page

Step to it

This blog post is mostly for inspiration (check out this post for a sales page guide,) but before we dive into looking at the beautiful Teachable sales pages I rounded up, here are a few key takeaways.

When it comes to the design of your sales page, there is a simple formula you can follow for maximum results.

The winning formula

  • Headline/hero: This is single sentence or phrase where you describe what your course is.
  • Course description: Here you can spend a few paragraphs going into further detail on what your course will cover and who it is for.
  • Case study/testimonial: Testimonials help prove that other people like your online course and help build your credibility.
  • Call to action button: Calls to Action are simply direct text urging your audience to purchase. Big buttons that say something like “buy now” are an example of a CTA.
  • Instructor bio: People want to feel connected to their instructor, make sure to fill out your bio and let your personality shine.
  • Case study/testimonial: Another case study or testimonial can really give people that final nudge they need.
  • FAQs: People are going to have questions, and it’s in your best interest to answer them all in one place rather than spending an hour a day responding to emails answering questions.
  • Call to action button: This CTA acts as that final push convincing people to purchase.

Luckily, Teachable’s sales page editor makes following this formula to create a beautiful sales page that converts easy and intuitive. The design side of creating a beautiful sales page is another topic entirely, and one that is easier to see than read about.

Take a look at these and begin to decide what you like and what you want your sales page to look like. Of course, these should serve as inspiration only. Make sure your sales page is true to your own brand and tastes.
