For jewelers, the next few weeks present an opportunity to put your best foot forward and create long-lasting friendships, says marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot.

In the video below, he outlines a few key steps to get reader for the rush.

For starters, make sure your store is in ship shape physically.

“Display your jewelry so that men in particular can see a few price points,” he says, adding later: “Know your hot items.  Know what’s popular nationally, What are the chains promoting? Turn on the TV and you’ll see stackable bezel-set rings, two stone rings, and diamonds by the yard.”

It’s also important to let your team know you support them, to make sure your website and social media are updated and to create a fun atmosphere.

“Let’s be that place that shows our customers that they came to the perfect place to celebrate this wonderful moment in their lives,” DeGroot says.

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.”
