23 The youngest of the Baby Boomers turn 55 this year. True, their headiest spending days are behind them, but with two-thirds of the country’s wealth under their control, they are not a segment to be overlooked (even if marketers seem obsessed with Gen X, Y and Z). On Baby Boomers Recognition Day, ask yourself if your advertising budget is showing America’s most populous generation the proper respect. Nationally, only 5 percent of ad dollars are directed at what is still the country’s single biggest-spending cohort.

1 Try to imagine a world without jazz, ragtime, R&B, rock, soul or hip-hop. To commemorate AFRICAN-AMERICAN MUSIC APPRECIATION MONTH, hit up an appropriate Spotify or Apple Music channel and share a debt of gratitude with your customers.

8 On NATIONAL CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM DAY, find an ice cream business that can print your logo on the container and ship to influencers in the area to enjoy while on a Zoom call, says Megan Crabtree of Crabtree Consulting. Share images from the call on social media.

20 Greet THE ARRIVAL OF SUMMER with a list of important tasks you’ve been putting off. Pledge to do one a day.

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.
