Launch an Email Upsell Campaign

Unlike when you first started your lawn care business, your Christmas light business has the upperhand in that you already have loyal clients.

Since you don’t have to establish an initial client base, you can upsell your light installation services to existing clients.

One of the easiest ways to upsell Christmas light installation services to existing lawn care clients is by launching an email upsell campaign.

When to Launch

The start of the fall season is one of the best times to launch your upsell campaign for holiday light services.

This allows for the time you need to schedule installations.

Although you should pepper in hard sell emails throughout your campaign, it’s important to also create engaging content.

After all, great content acts as gifts to surprise and delight clients. Plus, creating engaging content is easy.
