2.1 What is cross-selling?


Definition:
 Using a customer’s interest in one product to fuel their interest in a related product.

How it works: Unlike upselling, this isn’t about offering a better or improved product. It’s about selling an additional product to the one the customer is interested in.

Case study: iPhone cases and screen protectors could be cross-sold to a customer purchasing an iPhone. Oftentimes, cross-selling points users to products they would have purchased anyway; by showing them at the right time, a store ensures they make the sale. You can replicate a similar experience in-store by training your sales staff to cross-sell at the fitting room, for example, or even at the point of purchase.
