Spiff of The Month: Win the Lottery!

BY INSTORE TEAM

Published in the May 2013 issue.

In this retail version of the ever-popular state lottery, salespeople earn a store lottery ticket for each goal they meet. If no one wins the day or week’s prize, it’s added to the jackpot for the next drawing.

1. Buy lottery tickets, a drum to hold the lottery balls, and a results board.

2. Set the goals — first sale of the day, add-on, biggest sale, etc. — that will earn staff a ticket.

3. Designate a certain time of the day when you’ll draw the winning number. Make a big show of it with whistles, horns or gongs.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
