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

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
