How to Reduce Shopping Cart Abandonment and Improve Conversion Rates By Downselling…

You’re probably familiar with up-selling and cross-selling. Perhaps you even employ these profit boosting tactics in your marketing.

But how about downselling?

After reviewing and evaluating hundreds of websites, I would have to say that less than 1% of all online sellers are using this powerful conversion booster.

And, that’s too bad, because in every single instance where I have tested a strategic and related downsell offer, I’ve seen an improvement in conversion rates. Often a big one!

So what is downselling?

Downselling is simply presenting a related, yet lower priced offer to prospective customers who pass on your main offer.

The Shocking Reason Why Cheating Your Affiliates Costs YOU Money!

Recently I stumbled across a Clickbank merchant who was using a very sneaky method to cheat his affiliates. The checkout on his main salesletter correctly linked to Clickbank, so affiliates got paid for people who bought on the first visit.

However, he was using several aggressive name capture techniques (which is great), but in his post opt-in autoresponder sequences he sent all of the traffic to a different sales letter with a 1shoppingcart checkout.
