Spiff of The Month: October 2013

SECRET ITEM

The game revolves around a Secret Item. But because salespeople don’t know what their assigned piece of merchandise is, they are challenged to sell everything in the store. It’s a great way to move slow-selling merchandise before it’s discounted.

1A Secret Item is written down on a piece of paper and then enclosed in a sealed envelope. Members of staff choose an envelope from a hat and then hand it to the sales manager, who tacks it to a game board in the backroom. (Top the game board with a large question mark made of silver glitter.)

2Salespeople update the game board each time they make a sale. Invoices or sales slips are useful for keeping records.

3At the end of the week, each salesperson’s Secret Item is revealed. Award prizes or cash for the successful associates.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
