Roar to Action

Published

on

Get 2009 off to a rousing start by following our to-do list of 100 things … plus three more.

 

There’s nothing like starting off a new year with a dose of rip-roaring action. And our lead story this month, 100 Things To Do Right Now, packs more action than the entire Bourne trilogy combined. 
 
Overstatement? OK, guilty. But if you want to get your business year off to a butt-kicking start, this feature is where you should begin. And while you’re doing as many of the 100 things as you possibly can, here’s a few more to add to the list: 
 
101. Sign up for INSTORE’s Brain Squad. Besides the incredible pleasure of seeing your name plastered all over our magazine, you’ll spend valuable time thinking about key aspects of your business and see how some of America’s hardest-working store owners address the same issues. All that and you get a free T-shirt too! (We’ve even got a cool new design for 2009.) 
 
102. Fill out your subscription card for a free one-year subscription to INSTORE. Just do it right now while we’re talking about it. (Waiting … waiting.) Done? See, that’s one action down. Only 102 left. 
 
103. Consider, seriously, attending THE INSTORE SHOW, “The Smart Jewelry Show,” in Chicago from April 19-21. It’s the first major national trade show designed from the ground up to help you buy right, sell faster and market more effectively. Plus, we think it’s going to be a lot of fun. Learn more about the show in our special supplement enclosed as Part II of this month’s issue. If you like what you see, there’s a registration form inside the supplement as well as online at theinstoreshow.com. See you there! 
 
Wishing you the very best business …

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
