Sales Truth: Customers Come To Buy, Not To Be Sold

Published in the September 2014 issue.

WHY IT IS TRUE: You don’t go to car a dealership so they can sell you a car. You go because you want to buy a car. "What will it take to put you in this car today?" "Let me go to my manager and see what he will do." These are a complete turn-offs. Bottom line, when you drive away in the car you don’t have that great warm feeling you deserve.

PLAN OF ACTION: Customers don’t come into your store so you can make a sale. They come in for an anniversary gift … an engagement ring … a gorgeous necklace to wear to a formal event. They are there to buy, not be sold. Customers buy with the twinkling of that magical moment of the presentation or proposal in mind. Take customers to that moment with questions like "How do you plan to propose?" "What have you surprised her with in the past?" or "Tell me about the gown you plan to wear." You won’t need to sell; you’ve just led them to the decision to buy. — Dave Richardson

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
