EP 026 | Upselling Ahead with Shai DeLuca Tamasi
September 18, 2017
About this Episode
Most of us are not terribly comfortably asking clients for money, let alone asking them for more money when we think of some new product or idea that would enhance the existing project. Effective upselling, the act of offering a new purchase that complements an existing purchase, requires thoughtful consideration and courage.
In this episode we learn:
– why upselling is a benefit to clients
– how to look at upselling in a more positive light
– why every designer has to get comfortable with sales
– to avoid selling the thing, instead sell the experience
Before you attempt an upsell to a client, ask yourself:
- Does this new product (that I’m trying to upsell) complement what the client is already buying?
- Will this new product benefit the client?
- Is this client willing and able to spend more?
If the answers are yes, then you are in good shape to suggest more products.
