What is the use of creating custom variations?

Creating multiple custom variations for a single offering is a savvy strategy that allows creators and businesses to cater to the diverse needs and preferences of their audience. By presenting tailored options for an offering, you can effectively maximise the value they provide.


For example, if you want to provide the same offering for 1 month, 3 months and 6 months - you can simple create a variation of that offering with varied prices instead of creating 3 different offerings.


Offering customised variations not only enhances the overall customer experience but also opens up additional revenue streams. Customers who may have been deterred by a one-size-fits-all approach are more likely to find an option that aligns with their specific goals, learning styles, or budgets. This increased relevance can lead to higher conversion rates and customer satisfaction.
