Make the Most of Blue Monday and More Important Dates for January

20 Combine post-holiday depression with seeing our New Year’s resolutions fall by the wayside, and we arrive at a date in the third week of January that has come to be known as BLUE MONDAY, when — according to various media accounts — we are at our most miserable. Fight this annual nadir with a Blues Bash on social media or in-store, featuring your sapphires and other blue jewelry. It could also be a good way to introduce Pantone’s color of 2020 — “Classic Blue”.

1 As we open the year 20/20, take time to give serious thought to your vision. What one bold thing does your business stand for? How clear is it to everyone?

15 On GET TO KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER DAY, give your sales associates an allowance to take a customer out to lunch. Their goal should be to learn about them, not to sell them.

28 Celebrate FUN AT WORK DAY by rolling out a ceremony to celebrate big sales or a fun new spiff. And don’t forget to tell customers how much fun you had serving them.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
