How to Tell By Your Customer’s Eyes Whether They Want to Buy or Not

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 Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
