Making a quick list right before you open your store each day can help you to be more productive and successful, says jewelry marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot.

He explains in the video below that he adapted the idea from one in the book How to Become a Rainmaker by Jeffrey J. Fox.

DeGroot says your list should include three items — one from each of these categories:

Things you do for current clients. This could include custom work, repairs, mountings and the like.

Things you do to bring in new clients. Think posting to social media, sending emails and other types of outreach.

Tasks. These are non-sales-related duties needed to keep your business running, such as checking in jewelry and calling vendors.

DeGroot also shares other useful ideas from Fox’s book, including a killer sales question to ask and a way to put delight into your voicemails.

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.
