Spiff of The Month: Team Competition




Spiff of The Month: Team Competition


Published in the November 2012 issue.

Salespeople aren’t the only ones who help make the holidays merry. There are the jewelers, part-time wrappers (with their smiles or frowns), the admin staffers who answer the phone, call in orders, check on customer work, etc.

1Divide the store into teams. Put backroom staff on a team with sales staff. Each team has salespeople, a jeweler (if you have more than one), bookkeeper, etc.

2Offer a bunch of prizes that get split up or duplicated for everyone on the winning team.


3Prizes can be money, products, gift certificates or, even better: The winning team gets dinner at a fancy restaurant in January to reward themselves.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
