[h3]Closing Rate Hike Impacts Bottom Line[/h3]

[dropcap cap=S]ure, Everybody would like to close a few extra sales a day, say just one more for every 10 of those tire kickers. But what most jewelers don’t realize is just how spectacular the impact would be on their bottom line if they could up their closing rate by that 10 percent.[/dropcap]

The average U.S. store has a closing ratio of 1 in 9. Look at what happens when you convert just 10 percent of those non-buyers: An 80 percent improvement in sales! You don’t have to be pushy, but there’s always room for more efficiency on the salesfloor. Brush up your skills or invest a little more time in your staff’s training. It’s worth it.

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.”
