If there’s something you want to improve about your store, start measuring it, says marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot. 

“The mere act of measuring makes things happen; it makes things change,” he says.

DeGroot tells the story of a jeweler in Texas who wanted to boost his store’s closing ratio. With no announcement, the jeweler started posting the closing ratio on the wall each day.

The staff looked at the closing ratio and found that it was lower than they would have expected. Soon, it began to rise.

DeGroot advises jewelers to “begin the discipline of regular observation.”

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
