The Easiest Sale: Happy Customers Help Increase Profitability

Happy customers are the backbone of companies. The easiest sale you can make is to a happy customer! And you can continue to sell to them, as their loyalty is with you. Here are a few ways to consider upselling your products and services to your existing customers:

  • New products and services: This may be the hardest upsell, but the trust between your company and your customer exists, because they trust you they will be more likely to buy from you again.
  • Sell more of what you’re already selling: Expand your customer relationships by expanding on what you already do. How can you enhance your existing relationship to create more business?
  • This one is likely to easiest sell for your business, but the one most people are afraid of, price increase: If you increase your prices by 15%, you can lose 40% of your customers without losing profitability. It’s an easy way to make more money with a small change.

Lastly, run the numbers on how much you can increase your prices to maintain profitability. You should also consider how many customers you can lose in the process.
