How MID Cascading Helps Merchants To Increase Their Sales Volumes?
Businesses nowadays are striving to create the most amount of awareness about their brand through various marketing activities– one such activity being cascading. The process of cascading helps businesses to market the product and thus increases sales on a mass scale.
MID (Merchant Identification Code) is an identification number that is issued by credit card companies to all authorized merchants. The MID has a six-character long code consisting of numbers and special characters, like (XXX XXX XXXXXXX 1234). This code is assigned to every merchant who accepts payments through credit cards via their website. In case you are not aware of your merchant ID code, you should contact your credit card company to provide you with the code.
Now that we know what MID is and how it can help merchants increase their sales volumes, let us understand how merchants can benefit from a cascading process such as a mass email campaign?
How Can Merchants Benefit From Cascading?
A simple means of predicting traffic volume during any campaign is to take a look at the previous conversions performed by the merchant. For example, if he/she has sent 20,000 emails in 2010 and their average sales conversion rate for those emails was 1% as compared to the 2% rate for the 10,000 emails sent out last year, then we may feel more confident about sending 30,000 emails in this year knowing that the average sales conversion rate will be somewhere around 1.3%. So if a merchant is not aware of their previous conversions, then how can they predict traffic volume?
Well, here we come to know about the cascading technique which helps merchants gain maximum benefit from an email campaign. It helps businesses increase their sales volume to a great extent. The cascading process is also helpful in increasing the overall sales of an organization because if one sale leads to two more sales then we may be assured that our campaign has come out as a success.
So How Does The Cascading Technique Work?
Let’s assume we have hired an agency or a company that is interested in sending out a mass email campaign on behalf of our business that has MID-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-1234. This company is now responsible for providing all the ways to promote our business and their job is to make sure people visit our website by following an online advertisement or some other means, like a social media outreach or any other form of communication. Well, there are many companies who provide their services in the cascading process and the typical steps involved in this process are as follows:
The organization sends out a mass email campaign on behalf of their customer. In case a customer has not opted for the subscription service then his/her contact details will be added to an internal mailing list. The customer’s contact details are then provided to an advertiser who wishes to send out a mass email campaign on behalf of the business. From here, the cascade continues and so does the consequent increase in sales volume.
Organizations involved in the cascading process have their own ways and means that they follow in order to make sure that all their customers benefit from such a campaign so that they might send out their sales conversions to that customer, or he/she can also buy leads from the advertiser. The best part about this process is that customers’ contact details are never disclosed to the advertisers. Even if they want to send a mass email campaign, they can do so only with the permission of the original customer.
This cascading technique helps businesses in increasing their sales figures and at the same time, it also helps them to gain more profit from their existing customers. There are many organizations and agencies that follow such a process, so next time if you want to send out a mass email campaign for your business then do not ignore the cascading technique or you might regret it later.

Let us understand how merchants can benefit from the cascading process.
If you have hired an agency that is interested in sending out a mass email campaign on behalf of your business, there are many ways by which you will be able to increase your sales conversions.
If you are running a retail shop and want to improve your sales, then all it requires is to raise awareness about your organization. This can be done by following an online advertisement or any other form of communication— the most important thing that you should do is to make sure that potential customers visit your website and then consume what you have on offer.
The more traffic you will draw towards your webpage, the better chance for you to convert that traffic into buyers. This is the reason why the cascading process helps a business grow its sales volume.

In the long run, we can expect a good amount of commission from such an agency as well.
So if you are planning to increase your sales volume, there is no better way than following the cascading process which helps you in gaining maximum leads and converting them into new customers.
