3) Tips to maximize sales

Of course, we’d love to hear what’s working with you, but here are some tips from other partners about how to maximize sales and revenue.

PROVEN UPSELL: A CASE STUDY.

At your Venue

  1. Run a Promotion on your receipt. This is great because it is a great up-sell AND it guarantees that person will return; Multiple visits is a great way to make them a regular!
  1. Place on the counter by register. This ensures people see them and offers a great upsell.
  1. Educate your staff. It gives them something to engage customers with and it lets them know you support the guild.
  1. Add button to POS. Whenever you give a discount, you should try to track party size, spend, etc. for Craft Notes customers. We estimate you should see ~$14/beer. It’s also a great time to up-sell to friends that aren’t holding a book.
  1. Package with other shop items. Don’t just sell a $25 passport OR a $15 growler, Sell both by offering them a beer right now or some other low-cost incentive that adds revenue and seems like an unbeatable offer.

Online/Social Media

  1. Add Passports to your Online Store. This is great because it is a great upsell AND it guarantees that person will return; Multiple visits is a great way to make them a regular! (Copy & Pastable Assets make this easy to set up)
  1. Package with other shop items. Don’t just sell a $25 passport OR a $15 T-shirt, Sell both by offering them free shipping or a free beer when they pick it up on-site.
  1. Run a plug on Social Media. Make sure to tag us (@craft_notes) and we’ll repost it too to help you profit even more!
