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!

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
