If you’re reading this, chances are you’re thinking about creating a sales page. Maybe you want to start a new business, or you’re just curious about how to get more people to buy your stuff. Or maybe you have an online course or coaching program to promote, and someone told you a sales page was necessary. That was helpful, but now you’re probably thinking, can someone tell me how to write a sales page? Whatever the reason, you’re in the right place. In this blog post, we’ll cover the basics of what sales pages are, how to create a good one, and a few examples to inspire you while you’re creating.
A sales page is a long-form web page that is dedicated to convincing people to buy from you. It focuses on one offer and its sole goal is to convince your audience that they need to have it. The best sales pages a clear, full of benefits, and written with your ideal client in mind.
You may have heard about a landing page as well, but hear when I say they are different. Similarly, both pages are created with conversion in mind. However, landing pages tend to be shorter. Say you are building your sales funnel. Every sale funnel typically starts with a freebie, opt-in or lead magnet of some sort. So, if you have a coaching program, maybe your opt-in would be a PDF guide on how to get results as a new entrepreneur. In order to deliver that PDF to your audience, you may work with your email provider and set up a short web page to collect emails and let people know they will receive their freebie. That’s it!
A sales page on the other hand has many sections. This is because you want to provide your audience with everything they need to make the sale. There is typically no website header or footer. Just website copy and call to action. Got it! Great, let’s break it down.
Writing a sales page is a daunting task. But it’s not as difficult as you think. The most important thing is to make sure you’re writing for your reader, not yourself. Keep the reader in mind and you’ll be on the right track. I stress getting to know your ideal client before you write a sales page. Without having a clear ideal client in mind, your messaging can be off and that may cost you a ton of money in the end.
Learning how to write a sales page is simple once you’re able to break the page down into sections. Every highly converting sales page contains these main sections:
