Best range promotion:

25 small baskets for $99. When people stop in to pro shop they want to buy on average a medium basket of 50 range balls at $11. My team is trained to upsell the customer to a 25 small basket pack card for $99. This is a savings of $61 for the customer but only if they are buying small baskets. If they bought medium or large baskets on a regular basis the savings would be less but they would still save. Saying they’ll save $61 is a huge hit with most and if they are a regular customer they almost always purchase. I incentivize my team by giving them a kickback on every range card sold.
