What we know about how you sell

TRUTH #3

WHY IT’S TRUE: Because it’s the same for every type of product. Is the husband buying jewelry for his wife, or the woman buying herself a diamond bracelet … are they looking for pleasure or trying to overcome pain? Perhaps the guy is in the doghouse and flowers just won’t cut it this time. And maybe the woman has just wrapped up a messy divorce or just got fired from a job. 

PLAN OF ACTION: Show that you care. Sympathize with the pain of the guy who says, ?Boy, am I in the doghouse!? You might respond by asking ?How big is that doghouse?? When people know that you understand and care about their pleasure or pain, you’re on your way to closing 
a very nice sale.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
