Banish These Words in the New Year, and More January Events

Each year, Lake Superior State University releases its Dishonor List of Banished Words. The newest list included “so” (to start a sentence, as in “So, I am totally fed up with this overused word”), “price point” (when usually one of the words will work just fine), “break the internet” (classic clickbait headline), and “problematic” (“problem” does the job well in two fewer syllables). We’d also add “it’s on my radar” and “paradigm shift.” Actually, outlaw any word that makes you sound corporate and, hence, not human.

JAN. 6 Three Kings’ Day is observed with the giving of gifts to children, so get your gold charms jewelry ready and market the date.

JAN. 7 Join the jewelry Twitterati in chronicling this year’s Golden Globes, then blog about the hit jewelry selections.

JAN. 28 If you haven’t staged a promotion yet in 2017, one pegged to the Chinese New Year could be your first.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
