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

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
