How to Get Your Customers To Buy More

How to get your customers to buy more?

Of course you want an easy way to get your existing customers to buy  to spend more money with you, right? Well, here you go…

Simply follow-up.

Last year for the first time I purchased a 1 year supply of my contacts online from 1-800 CONTACTS. Even though I could see my supply getting low I kept forgetting to place another order. Just in the nick of time I received a reminder email from 1-800 CONTACTS letting me know I was at the end of my supply.

Sure enough, they were right!

Not only was I out of contacts they also reminded me my prescription was about to expire too. And if I didn’t act fast –no fresh supply of contacts– without an unscheduled trip to the eye doctor for an exam.  Geez!

I instantly placed an order for another year’s supply of contacts.

Problem solved!

What did that simple email do for me? Saved me time and the added expense of an early eye exam.

What did that simple email do for 1-800 CONTACTS? Provided an easy solution which resulted in another sale with no extra effort!

So again I ask this question…
