Tip: The engagement ring sale is all about emotion.

WHY IT IS TRUE: It’s not about the ring itself; it’s about the emotional feeling attached to the couple buying the ring and the woman who will wear it.

PLAN OF ACTION:  Contact several couples who recently purchased an engagement ring from you. Ask them if you can buy one of their wedding photos. Collect 10-12 photos minimum.

Then, when a new bridal customer sits across from you, reach under the counter and pull out your beautiful photo album and hand it to the woman. She may just recognize a friend. Then you say, “When you return from your honeymoon, no rush, I would like one of your wedding photos to put in my album. Would that be OK?” The moment she says “yes,” you have taken a huge step toward closing the sale.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
