“Kids rule,” says Paco Underhill. “It’s kids who can take business away.” With that kind of power, you better do everything you can to make sure they’re happy. As always, you can bet Paco has some researched-backed ideas on the best ways to get that done…

“Kids rule,” says Paco Underhill. “It’s kids who can take business away.” So how can you keep them engaged? Make sure there’s something for them to see at their eye level. Use a light to project a hopscotch pattern on the floor, and you have an interested child. Gary Gordon has a life-sized English bulldog statue that “all the kids gravitate to.”

Get more actionable advice from the world’s leading retail environment expert at The SMART Show. Paco Underhill’s must-see keynote session takes place on Saturday, April 18, at 8:30 a.m., and is sponsored by Synchrony Financial.

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.”
