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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
