WHY IT IS TRUE: The only reason anyone buys anything is to resolve a genuine challenge. Whether it is an engagement ring, anniversary, birthday, Valentine’s Day gift or a necklace to accent a new outfit, they have a genuine challenge.

PLAN OF ACTION: Your goal becomes making their life better, less stressful, and more efficient. This will separate you from the masses, and establish you as someone who makes situations better, not worse. Simple questions such as: “How do you plan to propose?” … “What have you surprised her with in the past?” … “Tell me about your new outfit” will get them focusing on the real purpose for visiting your store. Encourage them to talk about their desired “outcomes,” and your sale will close more easily. — David Richardson

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
