At the cinema with the kids yesterday
My son wanted popcorn so I ordered a ‘medium’ box of popcorn for him.
The girl serving asked me if I wanted to ‘go large’ with that for an extra 25p.
So she turned and grabbed two empty boxes to show me.
One was the medium size box I’d ordered and the other was the large size that I could ‘go large’ to for the addition 25p
The large box was easily three times the size of the medium one and seeing them in front of me I actually felt foolish for NOT taking the ‘go large’ upsell.
So we went large.
Obviously the pricing of the two options were so close that I’d presumed it had been tracked and tested to make going large a no-brainer.
But what hit me was how POWERFUL it was to visually see the two boxes next to each other.
Whoever had trained the staff to present the upsell was good, and the if it was assistant herself who had worked out how to make the upsell by showing customers the boxes together…
…I’m hiring her 🙂
