Jewelry stores that instill good habits are successful jewelry stores, says marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot. 

But all too often, jewelers accept the status quo, he explains in the video below. And the upshot of that is that they don’t train their people.

DeGroot encourages jewelry-store owners to commit time each week for this important activity.

“Do you know what a purposeful plan of training could do to your team?” he says. “What if you could get them to close just one more sale out of 10?  Or add on one more item out of five sales? Or get all of your below-average salespeople to raise up to average? Or have them just get along?”

The sessions could cover topics such as sales strategies, turnover signals, team selling, marketing and product knowledge.

“Set an agenda and put your people in charge of it,” he says. “You don’t have to do all the work.”

The key is to get started — and never stop.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
