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.

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.”
