The Importance of Consistently Clienteling

GN Diamond’s platform makes it easier than ever to give clients the exceptional service, digital convenience, and personalized experience they desire. 




The Importance of Consistently Clienteling

(PRESS RELEASE) Clienteling. Exactly what does clienteling mean in retail? When one googles the word it is defined as “a technique that retailers use to establish meaningful, long-term relationships with customers.” It takes on a different meaning when relating it to marketing. “Clienteling is a necessary element of finding, engaging, and building customer relationships with your core audience to encourage repeat purchases.”

While the vast majority of the population continue to buy inside a jewelry store and not online, how do you increase the odds that your customers will continue to buy from you rather than your competitor? By Clienteling! 

Clienteling uses all available tools such as purchase history and client data so you can personalize the shopping experience, provide superior customer service, and facilitate the sale. When in-store associates have the power to identify not only your most loyal customers but also their preferences, they are equipped to provide a more personalized and targeted service. With access to a customer’s profile, your associates may look up important notes, open offers, past purchases, and wish lists.  

Effective outreach with personalized value propositions like coming in for free jewelry cleaning and a re-check of prongs may be some forms to increase foot traffic. This instills confidence in your customers and illustrates your sincere concern to provide them with excellent service. It may also lead to much desired referrals. Another idea is a simple change in the tone of your phone conversation, expressing astound excitement of new jewelry or diamonds that may have just entered your store, which may entice customers to pop in for a visit. Any type of personalized communication may increase the odds of a customer buying, and therefore enhancing and cementing your existing relationship.

The importance of consistently communicating various messages to customers about new products will increase cross-selling opportunities.  Often one may get discouraged by leaving so many unanswered messages or not getting the outcome you desire.  However, this persistency and constant contact may lead to future sales especially going into the summer season. 

When the average cost of selling to new customers is often five times the cost of selling to existing ones, the numbers speak for themselves. As customers become clients, who then become brand advocates, in-store associates are able to better manage their high value repeat customers. These valuable customers are also the ones who provide the most referrals and the greatest store awareness among friends and peers in the community.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
