Custom Course Sales Page in LifterLMS

Custom Course Sales Page in LifterLMS

Building an online course takes a lot of time and effort, and so does acquiring new students. Just because you’ve created an online course doesn’t mean that people will sign up for it – you need to promote it in clear and compelling language, in a way that makes sense to prospective learners so they’ll purchase access. As a course creator, you may feel that your strength is in teaching, not selling. As such, a sales page for your course is an excellent way to convert prospective students into active learners. Before you can educate students through a course, you have to educate them as per why they’d want to take it at all. Let’s have a look at how.

What Is a Course Sales Page?

The goal of a course sales page is to turn your visitors into buyers by persuading them to enroll. Normally a course sales page is comprised of the course description and marketing copy. To create an outstanding sales page that will optimally convert into sales, structure, and content are equally important. To make your course sales page effective, you should add elements such as a compelling heading to capture visitors attention, an opening story to introduce the problem, bullets to highlight benefits of the solution, an offer to introduce your course, FAQs, clear pricing details, testimonials, images, videos, etc. LifterLMS provides you two options for your course description

  • The un-enrolled view, this is a sales page with your custom content for non-members or visitors of your site.
  • The enrolled view, your course home screen with its default content like syllabus, progress bar, etc.
