Sales Truths : Failure Is Not Falling Down, But Staying Down

BY DAVID RICHARDSON

Published in the December 2011 issue.

WHY IT IS TRUE: Everyone is going blow a sale. In fact, if you are really a sales professional, you can expect to blow
many sales in your career. Selling is a business of successes and failures.

PLAN OF ACTION: If you blow a good sale, step back and carefully evaluate what just happened and why. If you can’t
get your mind around it, share your thoughts with a fellow staffer or even your manager. Put it behind you, and jump
into the next sale with passion and energy. After all, you are a pro! — DAVE RICHARDSON

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
