Upselling is a tried-and-true method of increasing your revenue without increasing your marketing workload. By offering an extra product to customers who have already made a purchase, you're guaranteeing yourself an audience who are open to buying what you're selling.
To make upselling a piece of cake for you on Teachable, we're unveiling two new blocks that you can add to any course's thank you page: a video embed block and an upsell accept/decline offer block. When you set up an upsell, students who purchase the course it's attached to will see a thank you page like this:
To add an upsell, use the two new blocks located under Suggested Blocks in your thank you page editor (which can be found by navigating to the Thank You Page sidebar tab from your course's admin area):
- The Video Embed block allows you to upload a video with your pitch for the course you want to upsell (or any other video, upsell-related or not--like a "thanks" video). This block can also be added on any other page where blocks are available - learn more here.
- The Upsell Offer block allows you to choose which course and pricing plan to offer as an upsell, and customize the accept/decline buttons students see. This block is available on the thank you page only.
To help you monitor the effectiveness of your upsell offers, we also added a separate Upsells reporting area in your school's Transactions tab. Here, you'll see details like how many purchases each upsell generated, its conversion rate, and the total revenue from the upsell offer:
Keep an eye out for a blog post on how to upsell more than just regular courses--with a little creativity you can upsell consulting sessions, ebooks, webinars, and more.
