It would be difficult to find any business where upselling processes are not utilized. From the local cafeteria to big corporations, everywhere you go, sales and account management people will try to upsell you. Remember those add-ons your cellphone providers send you via emails or accessories that your cellphone company try to sell to you via SMS marketing? All these are examples of upselling.
Upselling is an important aspect of business growth. However, when it is done manually, there are numerous challenges. For instance, you cannot get in touch with thousands of customers one-by-one to learn about their pain points. If you cannot get insights from customers accurately, there is a high risk that your upselling strategies will be generic and unsuccessful. There are many challenges salespeople face when using a manual upselling method.
The best solution is to get an automated upselling method. There are plenty of reasons why you should get an automated upselling solution. In this blog, we have outlined our top three benefits of using upselling solution:
Upselling customers at scale
The most notable benefit of using an automated upselling solution is the scalability. With a manual upselling solution, you can reach out to only a few customers and upsell them effectively. The more customers you add, the more cumbersome manual outreach becomes. A scalable solution can reach out to hundreds, or even thousands, of customers without requiring mass hiring or full-time outreach staff. In this case, an automated upselling solution can be the answer to your scalability needs. No matter how large of a list of customers you have, you can easily reach out to all of them at once.
Sending relevant offers
One of the primary reasons behind failed upsell campaigns is not being able to send relevant offers to customers. Nobody likes getting unnecessary emails or texts or voicemails. When you are sending random products, services, or add-on options to your customers, it might annoy them. In the worst-case scenario, it might get tagged as a spam campaign! Therefore, sending relevant offers is quite important. With an automated upsell process, you are able to get insights into customers’ needs, demands or pain points easily. Then, using the system, you can send relevant offers to your customers automatically.
For example, you have three groups of customers. Each group has 100 customers. Group A is interested in SUVs, Group B is interested in Sedans, and Group C is interested in Trucks. Now, you can send upsell emails to all of group A customers with relevant information about latest SUVs. That email can also be personalized with customers’ personal details. The same can be done if and when a relevant deal appears for each of the other groups. Sending personalized messages increases your chance to get responses from your customers. With the automated upselling solution, you can do it easily and without spending more time and resources.
Getting real-time insights
When you send out messages to offer promotions and products to clients, you need to know how well those messages are doing. How are clients interacting with the offers? What works, and what doesn’t? These questions are best answered by reviewing reports and seeing if there are responses to your messages, how many people are opening your messages, and more. Knowing exactly how your customers are interacting with your messages is the key to being able to send more relevant offers. More relevant messaging means more eyes on the message and more interaction with it. More interaction means that you’re able to upsell more goods and services to more people without having to interact with them until they’re ready to buy. This also allows them to feel more in control and less pressured, which on its own will make your campaigns more successful!
