How to set the price for your course

You know you want to sell your courses online. But how do you pick the right price for your courses? Jeff Cobb, an expert in selling courses online has 10 tips to help you pick the best price.

  1. Be clear about your strategy – are you only selling courses or is selling courses part of your overall product, service or brand strategy?
  2. Work backwards – what is the value of your course to your customer?
  3. Create a new category – what is unique about your course that will set the right price for you and your customer?
  4. Change the point of reference – introduce a premium product as a way to drive the prices of all of your courses.
  5. Provide options – create a standard offering for the bulk of your customers plus basic and premium versions to serve other customers.
  6. Improve your packaging – close the deal by making your marketing content appealing and compelling with a clear call to action.
  7. Leverage scarcity and urgency – devise ways to limit the availability of your course to drive immediate action.
  8. Make discounts count – use them sparingly to reward loyal customers and to drive new business.
  9. Keep a “just testing” mindset – experiment with different price points and offerings to find out what works best.
  10. Just raise your prices already – increasing price may have now impact on sales volume with big impact on your bottom line.

Do you want to sell a bundle of courses?

We have provided course-hosting to our customers for 15 years. Over that time, we have done our best to serve the specific needs of our customers. The most requested feature – selling bundles of courses in a single transaction. We call a bundle of courses a package. When you use eLearning Courses, you can create as many packages as you like and put one or more courses in each package. Our customers use packages for many different reasons:

  • A portion of the subject-matter changes frequently. So it’s more efficient to break the content across several different courses.
  • Some of our customers create packages to target different segments within their customer base.
  • Some customers want to create several different price points for their course-bundles so they create duplicate packages with different pricing and sometimes slightly different courses.

If you need to sell bundles of courses, we have a great solution for you. If our package functionality is not absolutely perfect, we want to know so we can make the best possible solution to fit your needs. You can take a quick look right now by starting your free 30-day trial.
