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

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
