Sales Truths: It Takes One To Know One

WHY IT’S TRUE
A customer leaves having engaged with a staff member but purchased nothing.

 

 

PLAN OF ACTION
To get in touch with the feelings of a customer, ask your sales staff to do this: Visit the one store they absolutely hate (non-restaurant or jewelry) and make note of three factors contributing to that. Visit a store they absolutely love and make note of three specific factors that encourage them to want to return to that store over and over again. Share these results during a store meeting, and then have them in groups of two, slowly walk the interior and exterior of your store carefully noting three customer turn-ons and three turnoffs. All of a sudden, fingerprints on the counter or small pieces of lint on the floor will become magnified, and the appearance of your store will dramatically change.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
