When it comes to selling, there is little that McDonalds doesnÃ?¢â?¬â?¢t know. Being around for almost 60 years, they have had time to explore just about every possible way to sell more. And theyÃ?¢â?¬â?¢ve found some good secrets too Ã?¢â?¬" like selling package deals. Package deals are great for selling merchandise or services. Shoppers like it when everything they need is right there and they donÃ?¢â?¬â?¢t have to think too much. Sellers like package deals too, because theyÃ?¢â?¬â?¢re easily presentable and boost sales as well. In this post weÃ?¢â?¬â?¢ll show you how McDonalds uses packages to sell.

Why selling packages works

Look at our McDonalds example. The fast food giant doesnÃ?¢â?¬â?¢t just sell hamburgers. The menu doesnÃ?¢â?¬â?¢t list many single-sell items. McDonalds offers the whole deal to hungry people, full meals that have the works plus fries and a drink. No one has to worry about figuring out which side order or extra they want. ItÃ?¢â?¬â?¢s all taken care of in the utmost convenience and the consumer is happy all his needs are met. ThatÃ?¢â?¬â?¢s why packaging products or services works Ã?¢â?¬" itÃ?¢â?¬â?¢s handy. It saves time because itÃ?¢â?¬â?¢s fast and easy. Package deals also save consumers a little money (in a roundabout way). Look at the McDonaldÃ?¢â?¬â?¢s strategy again: For a discount off the purchase of single items, consumers get a full meal. Those hungry people arenÃ?¢â?¬â?¢t thinking about comparing costs between buying it all or buying individual. TheyÃ?¢â?¬â?¢re thinking about how much they save, or maybe how little it costs to get a hot cherry pie tossed into the order. By adding upsells to package meals, McDonalds increases sales even more. They smartly package together a burger, a drink and fries, then offers upsells of bacon, cheese or dessert for an even better saleÃ?¢â?¬"and a more satisfied customer who has everything they need or want, and then some.
