TRUTH #4

WHY IT’S TRUE: Salespeople face challenges every day such as closing a high ticket item, trying for add-on sales, or calling customers to inform them of something special. We all know people who have been successful in each of these areas because they tried. 

PLAN OF ACTION: Pick up the telephone and call your customers to remind them of their anniversary or share some new item you know they will like. Afraid to be perceived as a telemarketer? Well don’t be, because a telemarketer makes random calls from a computer generated list. You are calling someone who knows and trusts you.

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.
