Spiff of The Month: September 2013

Published in the September 2013 issue.

HANGMAN

A good game to use with sale staff who are learning new skills. Salespeople must meet minimum daily goals (such as approaching a certain number of customers) to avoid earning a hangman part. Those who have drawn a full hangman by the end of the week are assigned a booby prize such as a cleaning duty. Salespeople still with a free-hanging noose win a prize ($25 cash, a come-in-late ticket, etc.). By setting reasonable goals, you will encourage your people to apply what they’ve learned in training out on the sales floor.

Setup:

1 Work out what goals the sales associate must meet each day for the game’s duration (could be a weekend or a week).

2 Print out pieces of paper illustrated with the hangman’s scaffold and noose and with each player’s name on top, and distribute them at the morning meeting when you kick off the game.

3 Mark up the papers at the end of each day.

4 Play Chopin’s “Funeral March” at your game-ending meeting when you hand out the booby prizes.

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.”
