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.

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.”
