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

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.”
