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.

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
