Sales Truths: A Great Value Deserves a Great Price




WHY IT’S TRUE People walk through the door of your store shopping for a gift for someone or something for themselves. They choose your store rather than the one down the street because of their perception of your image and the great value you offer. Price: certainly it’s important, but not the primary reason they just walked through the door. Many customers believe that in today’s marketplace, they can certainly get you to give them a “better price.”

PLAN OF ACTION Considering a $3,000 anniversary gift, the customer says, “What’s your best price?” Mentally pondering his question for a moment, you say, “My best price is $3,500.” The customer will probably say, “Wait a minute, $3,500! I asked for your best price.” You respond by saying, “$3,500 is my best price … $3,000 is my great price!” You’ve just enhanced the value of the purchase and probably closed the sale.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
