Hand holding Christmas ball

25 One of the biggest advantages a small business has over its corporate rivals is the personal connections its owner can establish with customers. And this year, the coronavirus has stoked a heightened interest in localism and a real desire to support main street retailers affected by the pandemic. In the run-up to CHRISTMAS, add a more personal touch to your communications with customers by sharing an anecdote from your own family’s holiday traditions or stories from past seasonal campaigns that will get customers excited for what you have planned this year.

4 There’s a reason so many successful jewelers hand out freshly baked cookies – the hunger generated by the smell of sweet dough expands into an appetite for other goodies. On NATIONAL COOKIE DAY, get in on the action.

15-29 These are the HALCYON DAYS. All around is chaos. And yet, there you are — a picture of calm, professional control and direction. Visualize it: You, the halcyon, charming the wild holiday seas.

19 PANIC SATURDAY comes six days before Christmas and will likely be one of your biggest shopping days of the year. Steer aggressively. Shoppers at this late hour really just want a sure thing.

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.”
