Sales Truths: Quality Good, But Not Always a Sale Closer

Sales Truth: Quality Good, But Not Always a Sale Closer

Published in the July 2014 issue.

WHY IT IS TRUE: Customers patronize your store because they expect high quality merchandise. If not, why would they come in the first place? A great way to bore your customers is to pontificate on your magnificent quality. You wouldn’t patronize a car dealer who had a reputation of marginal quality. Quality is expected. Without it, you don’t belong in business.

PLAN OF ACTION: Customers come to your store because they are looking for something. They need help. Ask open-ended questions, give great eye contact, and support your responses with quality claims. Magnify their perception of this buying experience, and most of the quality questions will answer themselves.

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.
