Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and Other Big November Dates

And let’s not forget Thanksgiving, the day that kicks off the holiday period.




Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and Other Big November Dates

26 On SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY, be on your best behavior. The marketing associated with this day has the potential to bring a lot of new customers in the door, especially if you’re in a downtown area or community mall. Be ready to showcase or offer samples of your best products or services. And give thought to a way of incentivizing your new customers to return. Being a local business is your biggest advantage over the national chains.

20 On GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS DAY, think of a number and promote yourself. Are you closing in on your 10,000th customer? Your 5,000th wedding ring sold? 1,000th locket engraving of “You. Me. Forever”? Run some numbers, select a pending milestone and then let the local paper in on the countdown with news of how you plan to celebrate.

24 On THANKSGIVING, celebrate your staff, your vendors, your customers. And to double down on the spirit of gratitude, send a goodie bag to your 50 best customers.

28 It’s CYBER MONDAY. Boost sales (and info gathering) by teasing a special coupon that will only be available via your newsletter.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
