WHY IT IS TRUE: Millennials — those born between 1982 and 2000 — make up the nation’s largest working population. Because they are glued to their smartphones and tablets, they are most likely to find you on Facebook, Twitter or your website.

PLAN OF ACTION: Since millennials are people-oriented rather than product-oriented, consider placing a romantic bridal engagement proposal story on your website and Facebook page. You will look different from anyone in your marketplace, while at the same time focusing your business on what it is really all about: romance and love. — David Richardson

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
