Tip: The Eyes Are the Windows to the Sale

WHY IT IS TRUE: Looking carefully, but not staring, into the customer’s eyes will reveal their interest in what you are saying.

PLAN OF ACTION: When the customer is feeling relaxed and interested during your presentation, their eyes will clearly be dilated. When the customer is concerned or perhaps worried about the price, their eyes will be constricted. This is more easily observed in individuals with blue eyes, although with proper lighting, a brown-eyed individual might be exposed. When the customer’s eyes are constricted, lean slightly forward, particularly when you listen to them. Nod your head, smile, and demonstrate your genuine interest.

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.”
