If you are looking to make money then you need to understand what upselling is and how to use it properly.

An upsell is simply making an additional offer to a customer after their initial purchase. For instance have you ever gone to McDonalds and ordered a cheeseburger?

See why upselling is catching on as one of the hottest selling techniques? The easiest sale you are going to make is to the person who just bought from you.

When answering the question, "What is upsell and how can I make money from it?" You can benefit from thinking outside of the box. Let's say you have a business business you want to promote.

What is upsell? It is a way of increasing your revenue after an initial sale.

Upselling is where the profits grow!
