Sales Truths: There is No Business Like Show Business

WHY IT’S TRUE We walk into a movie theater with a bag of popcorn in our hand, or perhaps snuggle comfortably in front of our TV to watch our favorite show. We look forward with great anticipation to the show and walk away either very satisfied, very ambivalent or very dissatisfied. At that moment we make subconscious decision whether or not to ever watch a show again with that particular producer, actor, etc.

PLAN OF ACTION People enter your store with specific expectations. Like it or not, you’re in show business and you and your staff are on stage every time the customer walks in. Enhance their experience by offering a friendly greeting while maintaining good eye contact. Make a dynamite presentation by using all the tools — the counter pad, the ring stick and the selvyt cloth. Make sure the stage is clear of all distractions such as fingerprints on the counter, lint or dirt on the floor. Then give ’em the best show ever!

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
