Have a Counter Pad Within Reach for Every Presentation

Use the right tools to make the sale: All your salespeople should have counter pads within arm’s reach.

I can’t tell you the number of stores I walk into where I don’t see a counter pad anywhere in the store. There are many stores that have two or three counter pads, but not within easy reach of the salesperson making an expensive sale at the diamond counter. 

Counter pads should be placed strategically on the counter within one or two steps of the salesperson making the sale. 

Always place the counter pad on the counter before taking the merchandise from the case. Bring the merchandise out and in a careful, loving manner place it on the counter pad. Slide the pad toward the customer so the jewelry piece is easy for them to see and pick up. By sliding the counter pad toward the customer you also block their view of other merchandise in the case, forcing them to focus only on the piece being displayed. 

You would never set a stone without having the proper tools at your fingertips. Likewise, you should never sell a stone without having the proper tools available.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
