It Worked for Selling the Vaccine. Could It Work for Your Store?

This verbiage may be the secret to selling more jewelry.




It Worked for Selling the Vaccine. Could It Work for Your Store?

The drive to get the country vaccinated against COVID-19 has provided a fascinating insight into what motivates people. Different states have tried lotteries, giveaways (cash, trips, fast food, beer, donuts, even marijuana joints), college scholarships, and endorsements of football coaches. Interestingly, a Wharton study found the specific text used in a message had an oversized impact in prodding people to come in for a jab: By a wide margin, the top-performing message conveyed that a vaccine was “reserved for you.” It’s a message jewelers can tweak and use themselves. “Your jeweler is back from the world’s largest jewelry show. The latest designs, selected with you mind, are waiting for you.” Or if that doesn’t work, perhaps try that free joint.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
