Apple: A Case Study in Avoiding One-and-Done Sales

Apple is the perfect example of a company that never misses an opportunity to upsell or cross-sell products to their customers. Just imagine purchasing an iPad: not only can you choose the base model, but you’re also presented with various options such as increased memory, cellular data capabilities, an Apple Pencil, a Magic Keyboard, a case, and even AirPods. By offering multiple add-ons and upgrades, Apple increases their revenue potential while giving customers the chance to receive more value and features with each purchase.
