The 15 Crucial Components You Need To Incorporate Into Your Sales Page (To See Results) 

Are you looking to find out the methods all experts use to whip up sales pages that not only grab your audience’s attention but also make those clicks count? 

Well, you’ve stumbled in the right place!

Creating a sales page is more than just putting on some showy graphics or throwing out catchphrases.

Rather, it’s about weaving different components together that truly appeal to your audience and convert that curiosity into action.

So, are you ready to turn those clicks into cash? 

#1 A Compelling Headline

An all-capitalized text with the caption, "Feeling overwhelmed and don't know where to start?" with the latter part of the sentence being bolded in red.

When visitors land on your sales page, the headline is the very first thing they see. 

That’s why it should include the most captivating words on the page (aka your power words) because this affects whether or not your audience will continue reading. 

If your title is unappealing, chances are, they’re more likely to click off and look for another page to look over.

(And we don’t want that happening now, do we?)

When creating a persuasive headline, also try to consider the problem your product solves and who it can benefit. 

This also gives your audience a good idea of what they can expect from the product or service that you’re offering.

These elements will pique your audience’s interest and encourage them to learn more about how your solution might benefit them.

#2 Impactful Sub-headlines

Now that you successfully grabbed your audience’s attention, it’s now time to turn those skimmers into readers.

Sub-headlines are vital in influencing the flow and readability of your sales page since they split up the text into manageable chunks, making it easier for your viewers to read through your product’s information.

Think of them as the additional leads that stem from your headline to keep your audience interested and read through the rest of your sales page.

3 Quick Tips on How to Write Impactful Sub-headlines

  1. Make them short yet informative: By doing this, your sub-headlines will act as clear signs without overwhelming readers with too much unnecessary detail. For instance, in a blog post about meditation benefits, a brief and concise sub-headline like “Boost Your Mood with Daily Meditation” productively conveys the main idea without losing the reader’s attention.
  2. Keep a logical flow: Just like a well-constructed story, your sub-headlines play a crucial role in ensuring that the information you provide seamlessly flows from one point to another. 
  3. Spotlight the key benefits: By highlighting the benefits in your sub-headlines, you not only draw readers in, but also provide them with a clear image of what they’ll gain by using your products or availing of your services.

#3 State the Problem

A section highlighting the problems a person may be facing in regards to how clutter can affect his/her life.

Knowing who your target audience helps you identify and better emphasize their problems and what they’re struggling with.

Because how could you possibly communicate your readers’ problems without knowing who they are in the first place?

Once you state the problems that your audience is currently going through, empathize with them!

This shows that you actually understand their challenges and demonstrate genuine care, and that you’re just coming off as someone who’s after people’s money.

(Which is something that you want to avoid completely unless you want to watch your sales go down the drain).

#4 Provide the Solution

A section of text providing a solution to the dilemma of the reader by offering a "Motivated to Declutter Binder".

Alright, you’ve empathized and built rapport with your audience.

So now it’s time to present your product, aka the knight in shining armor that’s going to save your audience from their struggles

But the thing is, there are plenty of other products out there, all competing for the same spotlight. 

So, how do you stand out from the crowd?

Well, it all comes down to proving that your product is superior to the competitors. 

Once you’ve incorporated the PAS Method, dive right into the details of what makes your solution distinctive from the rest (which I’ll talk about more in-depth later on). 

Maybe it’s the unconventional technology, the 5-star reviews from satisfied customers, or the environmentally friendly packaging your product has. 

Whatever it is, be sure to add it into your content and prove that you have the edge against the competition.

#5 Product Benefits

A lengthy amount of text showing the list of benefits and features of the sales page.

Now, this is where you lay it all out on the table by giving your audience the fundamentals of your products.

Though, it’s crucial to understand that there’s a difference between your product’s features and how it can benefit your target audience.

Features Vs Benefits: How Do They Differ?

In short, features are the tangible parts that make up your product and service. 

These are specific and detailed information about what your product does and how it works.

For example, if we’re talking about a smartphone, one feature it can have may be an excellent camera with all the right settings for an Instagrammable post.

Benefits, on the other hand, are what your audience gets out of your product in the long run. 

It explains the why’s and how’s of what your service can do to improve your audience’s way of living. 

So, while a camera with a crisp quality can be an advantage, in the end, what matters most are the amazing photographs people can take with it throughout their lives.

Features are vital of course, but it is the benefits that make the deal. 

Let’s face it, customers don’t simply make purchases for the sake of making a purchase, they buy the advantages your products or services offer.

#6 Speed to Future Results 

A portion of the sales page showing the future results when purchasing the product.

Have you ever heard of the expression “time is money”?

When it comes to your audience, time is critical

They want to know when they can expect their desired results to come in, and it’s your job to give them the relevant information about it.

For instance, let’s say that you’ve been waiting for ages for a package to arrive on your doorstep.

Of course, you’re excited to finally receive your purchase, but you might also be feeling a little bit restless, right?

Well, the same applies to your readers. They want to know when they can start experiencing the advantages that your product promises.

So don’t leave them hanging!

Give them an estimated time frame (this could be days, weeks, or even months) so they know what to expect. 

After all, a little bit (a lot) of honesty can go a long way toward building trust and keeping readers on board in the long run.

#7 Your Credentials 

The author of the sales page, Alison, introducing herself to her audience and stating her credentials.

Establishing your credibility is crucial if you want to be part of the top 1% of marketers. 

It’s important to introduce yourself or your team early on in your sales page and highlight your qualifications and expertise.

Share your story and relevant achievements to reassure potential buyers that they’re in capable hands. 

By showcasing your experience, certifications, and achievements, you’ll not only build trust with your audience, but also increase the level of confidence they have in your product or service.

#8 Captivating Testimonials 

A direct quote from a customer named Kimberly who expressed her good experience with the product she purchased.

Show your audience that you walk the talk by adding customer feedback to your product’s sales page.

Testimonials are like gold when it comes to increasing reliance and faith in a brand.

Think about it, when potential consumers hear from genuine people who used your product or service and actually seen real outcomes, they’ll most likely feel like they’ve hit the jackpot and be motivated to buy from you.

And, if some major celebrities or brands tried and recommended your product, why not flaunt it on your sales page? 

By displaying their logos and names prominently on your page, this can surround your products with a little more intrigue and prove to your audience that you’re the real deal. 

#9 Added Bonuses 

A couple of outstanding bonuses that the sales page offers if a person purchases their binder product.

Who doesn’t appreciate a bit of extra value in every purchase they make?

Throwing in some extra bonuses here and there can really help strengthen the deal and make what you’re offering look a lot more enticing.

But, keep in mind to maintain a perfect balance so you aren’t just focusing on one or the other. 

Sure, incentives are great, but you don’t want to overload your audience with a long list of added services. 

Remember to keep it simple and stick to bonuses that are worth your audience’s time, money, and attention.

After all, you want your audience to feel like they’re making a massive bargain, right?

So, whether it’s a free eBook, an additional training session, or exclusive access to a members-only group, get creative and think about what other beneficial perks you can provide to really seal the deal. 

Believe me, your customers will appreciate you for it!

#10 Money-back Guarantees

An insurance of a 100% money-back guarantee to all interested buyers, highlighting that a refund of a purchase will be given within 48 hours.

What if it doesn’t work as expected? What if I’m not satisfied with it? What if buying it would be a waste of my money?

These are just some of the questions that swirl in your audience’s mind, and your goal is to minimize any obstacles and ensure they feel confident about their choice of purchase.

Which is why effective sales pages usually throw in guarantee policies, and it’s the company’s way of saying, “Hey, we’ve got your back!” 

It’s all about ensuring customers that the product will meet their expectations or resolve any issues, sometimes with a little extra something thrown in. 

Of course, you can customize your own guarantee to be tailor fit to your specific offers and deals.

Offering a guarantee not only reduces the risk for potential buyers, but it also demonstrates your commitment to the quality and usefulness of your product, which can help minimize objections and enhance conversion rates.

Should I Give Out Refunds for Digital Products?

Of course, having a return and refund policy is important in order to minimize the number of items returned, especially if you’re selling digital goods.

Your return and refund policy serves two main purposes:

  1. It instructs your consumers on how to receive a refund or return an item.
  2. It makes it easier to comply with worldwide legal obligations.

Research shows that by providing a return and refund policy on any website increases the number of visitors that end up making purchases, so go ahead and incorporate this into your website too!

#11 Frequently Asked Questions

A section highlighting the frequently asked questions of a product or service on a website.

Even with all of the info that you provide on your sales page, people seemingly always have some burning questions that they’re just itching to ask.

Answering your audience’s queries can either make or break a sale, that’s why it’s crucial to have them covered in your sales page’s FAQ section.

To lessen the hassle of having all of the questions boxed up in an ugly, disorganized manner, try using a drop-down box, especially if you’ve got a long list of questions stacking up. 

It keeps things neat and tidy, allowing your readers to pick and choose the info they’re most interested in. 

And if you find yourself tending to the same question over and over from your customers, make sure to add it to your FAQ section. 

It’s all about staying on top of things and keeping your content fresh and relevant!

#12 A Sense of Urgency 

A timer and a limited-time offer being highlighted to create a sense of urgency for potential buyers.

Time to put a spotlight on everyone’s favorite pastime, procrastination.

It’s an open secret that people love to go at their own pace and end up procrastinating in the end, which is why it’s a smart tactic to create a sense of urgency in your CTA (which I’ll discuss in the next segment), especially if your products are about to be sold out.

(Though, you can still utilize it regardless of your actual inventory).

This not only speeds up sales, but it also increases the element of the fear of missing out, or aka FOMO.

This reduces the chances of your audience forgetting about your product, or worse, picking your competitor over you.

An effective way to urge your customers to take action is by using a countdown timer to show a product’s limited supply or a swift discount period.

#13 Call to Action

A big red call to action button with the phrase "get motivated to declutter today" that immediately captures the reader's attention.

A lot of sales pages have several CTA buttons scattered all over their page, encouraging readers to a product or service.

Having multiple CTA buttons is a must on your sales page, but ensuring they hook your readers in is just as important, and can make all the difference in getting those clicks in. 

First and foremost, make it visually appealing so that it immediately draws the eyes of your audience to it.

And when it comes to phrasing, ignore the same old “Click Here” or “Submit” lines and don’t be afraid to get creative with it!

The key here is to make it as irresistible as you can and impossible for your audience to deny. 

#14 Attractive Visuals Like Images and Videos

The main headline and sub-headline with a Youtube video shown on the left about a promo video for the product.

Let’s be honest, text is great and all, but it can only do so much to keep your audience’s attention.

But what about pairing that excellent writing with some eye-catching images? Now we’re talking about a winning combination that will surely skyrocket those conversions

Though, don’t just pick images that won’t even provide value to your work and your audience.

If it appears thrown together or like it’s simply for show, your readers are more likely to gloss over it. 

Or worse, bounce off your website faster than you can say “sale”.

(Big yikes).

So, while your images don’t have to be magazine-cover-worthy, they should nonetheless be impactful and serve as strong support for your sales page.

#15 Close with a Reminder

The final section and summary of the Alison's Notebook sales page, reiterating it's products benefits and showing it's promos and CTA for the final time.

Finally, after you’ve incorporated all of the components listed above, it’s time to top it all off with a recap of everything you touched on beforehand.

It’s crucial to reiterate the standout benefits and features of your products or services, reinforcing why potential customers should act and purchase whatever it is you’re offering.

Summarize your offer’s core aspects, highlighting the significant benefits, and reinforcing any bonuses or guarantees included in the deal.
