Exercise 3 - Get 5 to 10 Quick Sales With This Marketing Plan

Now that you have a few complementary products ready to sell, it’s time to kickstart your offering and generate quick sales. One of the most efficient ways to promote these products is through an email marketing campaign targeted at your existing customers. 

In this section, we will guide you through the process of creating a compelling broadcast email that engages your customers, showcases the new complementary product, and encourages them to make a purchase to enhance their previous experience.


Step 1: Segment and Identify Your Target Audience

Before crafting your email campaign, segment your existing customer base to identify the subset of customers who would benefit most from the complementary product. Categorise them based on their previous purchases and preferences to tailor your message effectively.


Step 2: Craft a Compelling Subject Line

Capture your customers’ attention with a concise, engaging, and relevant subject line. Use words like “exclusive offer,” “enhance your purchase,” or “perfect complement” to convey the value of the new product.


Step 3: Personalise and Engage

Start your email with a personalised greeting, addressing each customer by name. This humanises the message and shows your appreciation for their business. Establish a connection by reminding them of their previous purchase and how the new complementary product can enhance their overall satisfaction.


Step 4: Showcase the Complementary Product

In the body of your email, provide a clear and concise description of the complementary product. Focus on its unique features, benefits, and seamless integration with their existing purchase. Utilise high-quality product images, videos, or demonstrations to help customers visualise the added value.


Step 5: Create a Sense of Urgency

To prompt immediate action, include a limited-time offer or exclusive discount for the complementary product. Highlight its scarcity or time sensitivity to create a sense of urgency, motivating customers to make a purchase sooner. 


Step 6: Call-to-Action

Include a prominent and persuasive call-to-action (CTA) in your email, guiding customers to the product page or a dedicated landing page. Make the CTA visually appealing and distinct from the rest of the email. Utilise action-oriented words like “Buy Now,” “Shop Today,” or “Discover More” to encourage click-through and further exploration.

Step 7: Send It

Get that email out there and watch the orders come in. There is no faster way to convince a collaborator this is all worth it then to generate 5 to 10 quick sales. 

Crafting a quick email marketing campaign to sell complementary products to your existing customers can be a highly effective way to boost sales and enhance customer satisfaction. By following the steps outlined above, you can create an engaging email that highlights the value of the new product, demonstrates its compatibility with their previous purchase, and motivates customers to take action.
