Of course, as we've talked about on this program, businesses should be maximizing their opportunities to reach out to their current customers. By making sure that they've taken advantage of upsells, cross-sells and down-sells, busineses increase their profits by marketing to those that already know the business.
Because these sales don't include acquisition costs, they are much more effiecient than sales that require cold-calling and prospecting. However, a business cannot sustain itself simply on marketing to existing customers. At some point it must find new customers.
