Here’s part 4 of what to consider in getting your team to upsell effectively, and to include in your hotel or restaurant staff training.
Teach staff the mechanics of upselling
The need for open questions to identify what the customer wants
How to listen actively to customers’ requests or preferences
How to respond, and make suggestions, or offer alternatives that best meet the customers needs
How would they describe each of your products and services? Rather than a script, allow them to develop their own dialogue, one that comes naturally to them, rather than something they have to remember and run the risk of forgetting.
Tomorrow we’ll look at what you need to do to enable your team to put all this into practice to upsell effectively.
