Sales Truths : Life is 80% Perception and 20% Reality

BY DAVID RICHARDSON

Published in the October 2013 issue.

WHY IT IS TRUE: The reality: A couple married for 40 years comes into the store and announces that they would like to trade in their wedding set on something much “nicer.” After 20 productive minutes they make a selection, make the trade and prepare to walk out of the store. With a smile on your face, you wish them the very best. Hmmm.

PLAN OF ACTION: The reality: The woman just traded in one of the most prized possessions in her life, her wedding set. Yes, they are happy, but could you make them even happier? Consider suggesting that you could create a pendant from the wedding set that would make a beautiful heirloom for one of their children or grandchildren. It would be an heirloom they would treasure forever. Got multiple children or grandchildren? Could be a great opportunity to create multiple heirlooms they would treasure forever. Never — DAVE RICHARDSON

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

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.”
