Editor’s Note: It’s November and It’s Time to Sell!

Forget big ideas … now it’s time to SELL!

Published

IT’S NOVEMBER, which means that every big idea you’ve had for this year has either been executed (or is being executed) or is just-going-to-have-to-wait-til-next-year.

November isn’t a time for ideas. November is a time for action.

That’s why this month, we’re concentrating on the most important action of all in your store — selling. And we’ve assembled our most accomplished panel of sales experts ever to guide, teach, and just-plain inspire your salespeople towards ho-ho-hot holiday sales. 

The most unique thing about the panel we’ve put together is that only one of the six people included sells jewelry. (And that guy sold, oh, only about $20 million in baubles last year.) 

Of the others, one sells men’s clothing, another sells high-end electronics, and another sells million-dollar-plus homes. You’ll also hear from Joe Girard, who holds the title of “World’s Greatest Salesman” from the Guinness Book of World Records for selling 18 cars in a single day. And we’re particularly proud to bring you the ideas of Jeffrey Gitomer, a guy I personally think is the best, most exciting (and certainly most energetic) sales trainer in the world right now. 

Selling is selling, after all. Regardless of what product they sell, there is something in the DNA of any world-class salesperson that makes them what they are. And this month, we’d like to think we’re coming as close as we ever have to cracking the code for you.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
