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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
