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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
