Upselling Strategies: A Sales Success Story

Jamie Van Cuyk, Growing Your Team

Sales Maven Podcast - Upselling Strategies with Jamie Van Cuyk


Upselling Strategies: Do you recognize buying signals even if the person wasn't intentionally giving you one?

On this episode of Your Sales Maven podcast, Nikki and her guest Jamie Van Cuyk, Owner and Lead Strategist of Growing Your Team and longtime Sales Maven Society member, discuss Nikki's input on an email. Nikki's upselling strategies made it easy for Jamie's client to say yes to the package that was an upgrade from what she originally thought she needed. 

“The meaning of your communication is based on the results you get.” Nikki supported Jamie by helping her perfect the wording on an email that addressed the needs of her client. Nikki believes that one of the most important tools you can have is to know how to craft an email that speaks directly to the person you are contacting; the right language can make or break a sale.
