The Neatest Trick You’ve Ever Seen for Selling a Watch

Keep your focus on the item.

WHY IT IS TRUE: The way you remove a watch from the case, for example, and hand it to the customer sends a message to the customer about the significant value of that watch.

PLAN OF ACTION: Placing the watch on a glass countertop with one hand sends a signal to the customer that this watch is lower value. Holding the watch carefully with a Selvyt cloth and presenting it with both hands to the customer sends an entirely different message. Have your sales staff select a watch and, with both hands and a Selvyt cloth, hand it to someone else. Remind them to keep their attention focused on the piece they are presenting; this will draw their customer’s focus to the item.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
