10 Killer Ways To Multiply Your Sales
Author: Frank Bauer
Would you like to multiply your web site sales? Or course you
would, who wouldn't? :) Then take a close look at the
following 10 killer ways to multiply your sales...
1. When you make a sale, always follow-up with the customer.
First you should follow-up with a "thank you" email.
Then, a few days later, you can follow-up up and as them if
they are satisfied with their purchase or if they have any
After a certain time, you should follow-up and ask them for
their feedback, good or bad and possibly for a testimonial.
All your follow-up messages can include a small advertisement
for other products you sell.
If you use a fn automated system to do this, it will not even
take a minute of your time to do all the follow-ups.
2. You could upsell to your customers. When they're at your
order page, tell them about a few extra related products you
have for sale. They could just add it to their original
Or you can upsell your visitors from a standard version to
a professional version of your product or service.
3. Tell your customers if they refer four customers to your web
site, they will receive a full rebate of their purchase
price. This will turn one sale into four sales.
This can be easily done placing a refer-a-friend form on your
order "thank you" page.
4. When you sell a product, give your customers the option of
joining an affiliate program so they can make commissions
selling your product. This will multiply the sale you just
For example... do that in one of your follow-up messages
mentioned in the first point above.
5. Sell the reprint/reproduction rights to your products. You
could include an ad on or with the product for other products
you sell. You could make sales for the reproduction rights
and sales on the back end product.
You could also product licenses in bulk at a discounted rate
to resellers. Then they can sell it at retail price and
keep to profit.
6. You could cross promote your product with other businesses'
products in a package deal. You can include an ad or flyer
for other products you sell and have other businesses
selling for you.
This is a great way to joint venture with other businesses as
it is mutual beneficial for both sides.
7. When you ship out or deliver your product, include a coupon
for other related products you sell in the package. This
will attract them to buy more products from you.
Of course you can also include coupon codes in one of your
8. Send your customers a catalog of add-on products for the
original product they purchased. This could be upgrades,
special services, attachments, etc. If they enjoy your
product they will buy the extra add-ons.
If you create an online catalog for delivery by email (again,
this is good for another follow-up email), I recommend to use
Adobe Acrobat to create a PDF catalog.
This way your customers will be able to read it, no matter
what operating system they use on their computer.
9. Sell gift certificates for your products. You'll make sales
from the purchase of the gift certificate, when the recipient
cashes it in. They could also buy other items from your web
To do that online, you could simply send the customer a
personal coupon code, that they can on to the lucky person.
10. Send your customers free products with their product
package. The freebies should have your ad printed on them.
It could be bumper stickers, ball caps, t-shirts etc. This
will allow other people to see your ad and order.
Online you could give them free versions or trial copies
of your other products, together with their paid product.
