Get Big-Game Ready – The Super Bowl Is Approaching, and More Important Dates for February

2 The Super Bowl these days is as much a test of a business’s marketing acumen as a sporting event. “Most Valuable” promotions, offers to return the purchase price if a certain point spread is met, men’s events with a former player, Souper Bowl charity drives … the options are almost endless. Make sure you’re game-ready too. America is watching.

2 OK, here we go again (and again, and again … ).It’s GROUNDHOG DAY, and that celebrated meteorologist Punxsutawney Phil will emerge. Offer a discount at 2015 prices if he sees his own shadow.

10 The handwritten-envelope please, and the invitation, and the canapes, and your red carpet commentary … Yes, the OSCARS are tonight. You know the drill.

29 LEAP YEAR DAY only comes every four years, so jump on this sweet little marketing op. Hoppy Hour, anyone?

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
