If your business supplies multiple services or products it can be difficult for the sales team to position the full range of products to customers. Often they can identify a solution to fulfil a specific need but fail to present a wider solution or related products that could also bring value to the customer, concentrating solely on getting an order for an individual product.

Cross selling the full product portfolio is a huge step toward forming long term relationships with customers and achieving quota for them team.

It’s easy to get your team cross-selling other product, just follow these three steps below.

 

1 – Understand the customer needs

Understanding the immediate customer need is key to being able to identify product solutions to offer. The more of the customers problems you can identify the larger amount of products in your portfolio you can offer and leverage the synergies of. 

 

2 – Understand what your solutions solve

Your team might know how to deliver the elevator pitch for the products in your portfolio, but do they know what problems they can solve for the customer? Understanding the relevant of the product to the customer pain is essential.

 

3 – Understand how your products work together

If you have a range of products in your portfolio it’s important to understand what the complementary offerings are.
