Complementing licensed products like bags, umbrellas and hats - will help you take advantaged of cross sales. Your customer’s shopping cart will be bigger with little to no effort if you include packs or promotions in your sales actions. Just see the following example:
A man enters to your store with the only goal to buy a school bag for his 4-year old son. He starts by choosing one, but the kid sees in a corner the Spiderman bag he always dreamed of. The parent checks it and sees it is of a great quality, it has an attractive design and a fair price. He decides to buy it since it adapts to his expectations and he wants to make his son happy. Before paying, the sales employee informs him that the school bag can be purchased as an optional pack along with a Spiderman hat and Spiderman sneakers, everything for just a couple of extra Euros.
This is a win-win situation!
