Spiff of The Month: September 2013

BY INSTORE TEAM

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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
