Online course upsell optimization

microsoftcombinator

Performance-based pricing

The majority of CRO firms don't give any guarantees on online course upsell uplift and just ask for a fixed monthly fee without any growth responsibility.

We conduct preliminary quantitative analytics before we start working in order to forecast a specific percentage of uplift of upsell that we can achieve by an agreed date.

As an example, it could be 5% total upsell growth in four months.

In case of not delivering on time, which happens in 4-7% of cases, we conduct more A/B tests for FREE until we deliver the promised upsell growth.

Sounds interesting? This estimation of guaranteed uplift is based on our experience of conducting A/B tests on million monthly users of our clients in online course and understanding of upsell average conversion rates.

How do we optimize online course upsell?

Expertise optimizing online course upsell

We have delivered about 471 experiments for 47 online course projects and in most cases we worked on upsell optimization. Request the most relevant online course case studies for similar market.

There are three major factors to look at when you assess the expertise of a conversion rate optimization firm.

Ask them about the experience with:

  1. process
  2. online course
  3. same audience.

The majority of conversion optimization firms claim to have conversion rate optimization process expertise and propagate the same story of their skills in research and experiments.

And you should have some hard skills to assess the level of these skills on initial calls, which could be hard to do.

How do you choose if you can't do a technical assessment on data engineering and statistics? In this case you can ask for their track record in the same business model, as any online course has similar problems and best practices.

Isn't it handy when a conversion optimization firm has already carried out similar analytics on millions of users and obtained insights on how to improve upsell? On the other hand, each business model has completely unique tech and analytics stacks that require different teams, methodologies and values.

And if you hire a contractor expecting a turnkey solution, you don t want the agency to be doing important things for the first time or find them quickly recruiting freelancers to cover skill shortages, right? Last but not least is market expertise, which is all about understanding your customer demands.

And that's the main goal of the research if the CRO agency already boasts the business model experience.

So it's obviously a clear competitive advantage if the contractor has that, but it dramatically narrows the shortlist of CRO agencies that have all three components (process, online course, and industry expertise).

However, if the CRO agency has worked with 325 clients like we have, then they likely have success stories in the same market as yours.

And even if it's from a different business model it could be even more helpful as it can bring new upsell optimization tactics that your competitors may be not be aware of.

1. Experience of conversion to paid subscription optimization at scale
2. Privileged to develop A/B/n tests on 177 million monthly users.
3. Advanced experimentation statistics.

What is a average online course upsell?

The first goal of online course conversion rate optimization process is to identify the biggest bottleneck in the funnel. Even if you've done advanced funnel analytics, cohorts, and quantitative user journey research, how do you prove that your current upsell needs to be optimized? Evidently the vital factor is to get trustworthy and up-to-date numbers on online course upsell benchmarks in your industry.

Frequently asked questions

  • What are the best techniques to improve upsell?

    After working with a number of online course customers, we understood that there is no universal list of top-performing tactics to improve upsell. The core value is in the depth of quantitative analytics and UX research that results in representative data on the most problematic bottleneck. The universal best practices for upsell optimization most likely already utilized by competitors and already don't result in desired results. And the function of a conversion optimization agency is to be on the cutting edge of mechanics, using processes from other markets that are not currently well-known by the competition.

  • What is the pricing of upsell CRO services?

    Pricing depends on the volume of monthly traffic, user flows and conversion rates to estimate the number of experiments, the required results and the complexity of executing that.

  • What happens if the forecasted upsell growth is not achieved?

    We do more A/B tests for free until we deliver the promised upsell results. This obligation is included in the contract and we execute this promise anyway to further the name of one of the most respected CRO agencies.

  • What is the process to optimize online course upsell?

    1. Data infrastructure audit. 2. Detect the most critical upsell leak and get quantitative and accurate data on the reason behind it. 3. Prepare a new version of the interface and copywriting. 4. Build an A/B test and perform rigid quality assurance. 5. Report the results!

  • How to calculate upsell uplift?

    We measure optimization results based on experiment results. If you haven't heard of A/B testing, it's splitting the traffic between two or more versions of the same UX element to collect a big enough sample size of the effect on the upsell. We do a conversion tracking audit before starting with conversion optimization, to be confident that the data is not polluted and discuss the methodology to calculate the upsell.

  • What is upsell?

    If it's your first project in online course then the first step is to learn not only the key KPIs such as upsell and their formulas, but also their interrelatedness, ways, processes, tactics, strategies to improve it and the basics of data analytics, so that you can evaluate the optimization efforts.
