Using Add-on Services to Drive Revenue

Use the TimelyBill product add-on feature to drive revenue

Timely Tips #1

How service providers can use add-on services to drive revenue and customer value.

Service bundling refers to selling two or more related services together under one SKU (so only one item is added to the order), usually at a lower price than it would cost to purchase items individually.

By offering a package of products together in exchange for price discounts, customers get rewarded by saving money. The goal is to foster loyalty and trust... ultimately increasing revenue and customer lifetime value (CLV).

TimelyBill enables service providers to manually create add-on products and services into a single group and sell them as a complete offering. For example, add-ons for SIP trunks could include DIDs and PBX phones.

Our product catalog also allows the configuration of automatic service add-ons. Using this setup, TimelyBill can automatically add a hierarchy of products and services to orders. For example, when an online shopper purchases an internet connectivity bundle... a monthly data package, modem, and router get added to the order automatically. The purchase is at a lower price than it would cost to buy those items separately.

To create effective service bundles, you need to understand the consumer mindset. What are they looking for, and how can you give them more value with add-ons?

Selling add-on services helps providers increase their average CLV and boost revenue from existing customers.
