If you’re holding private sales and they’re not working as well as you’d like, marketing specialist Jim Ackerman says its time to change up your marketing.

Most jewelers promote these events via Facebook, email and postcards. But you might want to ditch the postcards, he says.

In the video below, Ackerman shows how one jeweler achieved a superb 12 percent response rate using a well-crafted two-page letter. As a result, the store did $80,000 of business in two days.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
