Sales Truths: Want To Build Loyalty For Life? Show Your Client You Really Care

WHY IT IS TRUE: Customer wants are not necessarily product/service-specific. Truth be known, many customers really care less about the “jewelry” and more about what the jewelry does to enhance his relationship with her. Meet that need, and you’ll have a fan forever.

PLAN OF ACTION: The customer needs an engagement ring or an anniversary gift. Demonstrate your genuine interest by asking him how he plans to propose, or how he plans to surprise her with a special anniversary gift. Now he knows that you genuinely care, and suddenly you look completely different than the jewelry store two blocks away he just visited. If he has a plan, ask him to share it. Show genuine interest by nodding and smiling. If he has no plan, share a couple of your great ideas with him. You’ve just taken a major step to capturing a customer for life.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
