Instagram is also experimenting with an affiliate network that would allow select users to profit from the sales they make.

Continuing today on how to boom that AOV, here are a few more interesting tips, but before we go ahead, if you liked the previous version do let us know your comments below :) 

🤌 Add Product suggestions to every product description page 

The best place you can upsell an existing customer is the product description page as the customers are already considering a purchase and while they read more about the product they’re most likely to check out more products related to the same. 

These recommendations can work miracles 🪄 if given with a personalized approach, as personalized product recommendations reduce cognitive decision-making, aiding in a quick and easy purchase decision. 

❤️ Offer personalized membership programs 

Personalized membership programs are a great means to upsell your existing customers. The success of this completely depends on the benefits the membership offers. 

PRO TIP: Add things beyond just free shipping to the membership, for example: 

🎂Birthday discounts 

😍 Free demo products

⏱Early access to festive sales etc.

📧 Email and SMS for the win 

Even though promotional emails and SMS are annoying, if used right they can act as powerful tools to cross-sell your customers.

Provide customers with personalized recommendations on post-purchase emails and consider adding product blocks in the following emails 

👉Thank you emails after every purchase

👉Welcome Emails with product education and info about your brand

👉Emails for status updates like Shipping and delivery notifications

💵 Use price anchoring

Yet again an amazing way to upsell is to deliberately present the customer with an inferior choice at a marginally higher price than the product you want to upsell. 

And boom SOLD! 

Here’s an interesting study that proves this fact. 

A few years back, The Economist ran an ad that looked like this:

Dan Ariely took the ad and showed it to 100 MIT students to see what they would choose.

An overwhelming majority of 84% chose what seemed the ‘best’ option – both print and web subscription at $125. 16% chose the web-only subscription. Nobody chose the print-only subscription at $125. 

Dan then took off the middle choice—the print-only one and ran the test again on 100 people. Surprisingly, the majority (68%) of people chose the cheaper option when the dummy choice was removed. The print and web subscription that saw 84% subscription in the presence of the dummy choice now got a significantly low 32% subscription rate.

An inferior choice makes a similar but superior choice look better even when other options are cheaper.

🛍 Provide Product bundles and BOGO offers but for Buy 2 get 1 free:

Providing Bundles is one of the best strategies that help in a significant chance of people being upsold easily, as the value perceived is of the bundle entirely and not each product separately. 

When brands provide Buy 2 get 1 offer, the customer sees value in getting three items for the price of two, encouraging them to make that extra purchase as they feel they are the ones who are winning here. ( is it? 😁)

Here’s an example of Apple bundling its products and giving customers more value than they would have received by purchasing them separately.

To conclude, here are a few best practices to keep in mind while upselling and cross-selling  your customers: 

💸 Experiment with various Offers for your audiences:

Audiences may react differently to different offers, to figure out what works the best for your brand TEST different types of offers, and in each test do the following : 

👉Constantly monitor and analyze user behavior to summarize their reaction to the offers and define the success rate of every offer.

👉Optimize user experiences on your eCommerce platforms according to the offers being run, let every active person on the platform be aware of the offer and identify at which stage of the funnel are users stuck, to plan the consecutive offers. 

⚠️ Do not overdo the offers: 

While experimenting is necessary, it’s important to not overdo it, as a frequent display of discounts and offers, decreases their value. This has an impact on the data then received and loses the entire point of running the promotion in the first place. 

🧐 Make the increase in the value to upsell count: 

While upselling it’s important to keep the price hike and the value provided through the upgrade directly proportional. For example, if the upsell is going to be from a basic model at $40 to the upgraded version at $400 for just a few additional features, it’s not going to make a significant impact on the customer and thus the upsell is most likely to fail. 

So keep all these tips in mind the next time you’re planning to increase your Average Order Value.
