Sales Truths : It’s all in the eyebrows

BY DAVID RICHARDSON

Published in the June 2013 issue.

WHY IT IS TRUE: If your customers or your staff don’t get it, they won’t want it. And if they don’t get it or want it, you won’t get what you want — their attention, respect, performance, money, or the sale. It’s all in the eyebrows … if they don’t move, you are not reaching them, and they are probably not interested. On the other hand, if their eyebrows go up, that means you are getting through. Great! If their eyebrows however, furrow or knit, then you are somehow missing the point.

PLAN OF ACTION: Check it out. Lift your eyebrows, you are very interested. Furrow your eyebrows, you are possibly interested but need more information. Now test it out: watch your sales staff as they make a presentation. Where are the customers’ eyebrows? Up, furrowed or not moving at all? Right away, you get a clear indication as to where this sale might be going. Check out the eyebrows on your staff when you are conducting a sales meeting. Good salespeople, eyebrows are up, or furrowed if you are not getting through. Mediocre salespeople, eyebrows are not moving all. Hmmm. This is a great technique for validating your success and the success of your business. — 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.”
