Gems add on/up sell at PPF?

Post by billiebcc on Fri Aug 03, 2012 8:35 pm

So do you up sell masks by asking them if they want to add on gems or are the masks with the gems an upsell mask? ie the next tier? Right now I have my masks as it and then a sign to add gems for $x.xx amount of dollars.
How do you do it?

I just did a flat 8 a face. Some have gems, some don't. It saves time and debate with kids when Mom says, you can only choose from these 5 dollar faces, and everyone really gets what they want. Also, don't have to upsell, everyone just gets what they want. I think I do enough of the hello kitty, unicorn mask, and simple stuff to make up for it. Since I changed to this, nobody has really blinked. Face painting is 8, tattoos are 5...

I don't charge any differently. I just assessorize if I have the time: gems, liquid bling, etc. Usually the gems give you a good focal point and th designs are easier to work with when you put them on!

Sometimes I upsell, sometimes I don't. I also downscale if a child really wants a "fancy mask" that sells for $15, but mom says, "You need to choose from the $8 board" I'll say, "I can do a $10 version of this fancy mask if you like" and they go for it every time.

Or if they choose a mask from the $8 board, I'll start on it and then I'll ask, "Did you want the plain $8 version or the fancy blinged out version for $10?" or "Do you want to add the pretty bling for $2?" while I run my fingers through the gem box. bwahaha! That works almost every time. Smile

Lol @ Manja’s laugh. Did you once work retail? I was thinking of asking for a few dollars more for bling also.

This is exactly what I do! Glitter is a gimme...I always have time for glitter lol. But gems on antenna's are dependant on time, gems on princess crowns are mandatory though....who ever saw a princess crown without at least one gem???

For PPF I upsell by asking each time. Dads & grandparents are demographically more likely to upsell Very Happy It's a numbers game, so I just always ask & they can say yes or no.

For birthday parties I give gems & gel to the birthday girl.
