Knowing Your Customer is Critical

WHY IT IS TRUE: Selling used to be about transaction; now it is about relationships. How many customers are in your database and what do you know about each of them?

PLAN OF ACTION: On a sheet of paper, ask your salespeople to write down the names of your top 50 customers. Ask them to write something they know about that customer, their spouse, hobbies, etc. Train your team based on how well they know your clientele.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
