Cross Selling Skills
There has to be added value for the client to buy additional services from you. If they already buy that second service from an alternative provider, you must clearly ’sell’ the benefit of them buying both services from you.
By recognising your own company’s wider business capabilities this course allows you to explore more opportunity to offer these services into your clients.
There are many reasons why cross selling is harder than we think it should be. Our research has shown the same barriers exist in many organisations. We shine the light on each of these and offer solutions as to how to overcome them.
