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.

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.”
