For example, if you run promotions, there are different types and different strategies and tactics you need to consider. Then you need to decide if you’re going to offer upsells, downsells, or other offers to go along with your initial offering.

We’ve experienced a ton of success helping our clients conquer promotions and we want to help you learn the basics of what works in this episode.
