Why Cross-Selling Products is An Efficient Affiliate Marketing Strategy

Written by: Sarah Miller Promotion Tips

bottlesAs an affiliate, do you upsell or cross-sell products in your business? Well, if not you’re missing a great amount of additional sales and profits. Cross-selling a variety of related products to your customers is the best way to amplify your scope of work and provide yourself more promotional options. If you’re able to sell one product, you will surely succeed in selling two at the same time. You may think that cross-selling is difficult or unnecessary for your business, but in actuality, it really is quite simple and can significantly boost your earnings. 

The ever-growing industry of  health and weight-loss supplements provides affiliate marketers with undoubtedly great possibilities of building a vast and effective online business. This niche involves different metabolism-boosting and detoxifying products, which help individuals to lose excess weight and purify their bodies.  As many of these products provide unique benefits, this niche offers a great opportunity to cross-sell products.

For example, if a customer wants to lose weight in a healthy and quick manner, it would be an effective tactic to promote BizProfit’s Pure Asian Garcinia weight loss supplement in addition to the popular colon cleansing supplement called Pure Colon Detox. You are offering your customer the opportunity to blast fat while flushing the body of toxins. The perfect duo! By cross-selling products such as these, an estimated quarter of the customers who order the Garcinia Cambogia supplement order the Colon cleanse as well.

We at BizProfits see the success in cross-selling and now offer multiple Health and Beauty CPA cross-sells, including some of our best-selling products: Colon Cleanse, Forskolin, Raspberry Ketone and Garcinia Cambogia free trial CPA offers.

You shouldn’t confuse cross-selling with up-selling. These concepts are similar but not identical. Cross-selling means selling a customer complementary products in addition to the product he has already chosen. Up-selling involves suggesting to a customer a higher priced version or model of the same product or service.


Cross-selling is one of the easiest and most effective methods of affiliate marketing, and it can help you to sell more products, enhance your customer loyalty, and boost your earned income. You can find many examples of the efficacy of cross-selling products, as with Amazon, who suggests a broad selection of eBooks to customers who are purchasing a Kindle.

What’s the key to effective cross-selling?

Put your customers’ needs above all. Explain to your customer, that you’re not just trying to cash in on his purchases, but truly want to sell him a product that will complement or reinforce the option he’s already chosen. Show him the benefits of buying a complementary product and try to enhance his shopping experience with your related product suggestions.

It’s important to learn more about your customers’ needs and wants to effectively cross-sell relevant products. Become familiar with the products you sell, learn their properties and features. In this way, you will know exactly which products to suggest to your customers and why.
