Emails in this sequence

Email # 1: Offering email

📩 Why this email

Showcase the products that enhance the product they have already purchased to get them to cross-sell. You can also show them more premium products that are better than the products clients are interested in and upsell to them.

Email # 2: Discounts

📩 Why this email

People usually don't buy the high-end product because it is not within their budget. So, give them exclusive coupons or a one-time discount to get them to upsell/cross-sell.

Email # 3: Social proof

📩 Why this email

If price is not the cause of hesitation, they might be unsure about the product, so send them this email showcasing testimonials, reviews, etc., to provide social proof.

💼 Expert tip

Email marketing doesn't just have to be about driving sales. You can use it to educate people about the product and the brand before trying to make the sale.
