Remember This Important Lesson on the Power of Posture

How a client stands may tell you what you need to know about whether they’re ready to buy.




How a client stands may tell you what you need to know about whether they’re ready to buy.

WHY IT IS TRUE: Are their arms folded and closely tucked at their sides? This indicates that they might not be open to you. Are their bodies turned toward or away from you? “Away” can symbolize that they are giving you the cold shoulder. “Toward” you, on the other hand, can imply a decision for interaction and more information.

PLAN OF ACTION: Ask open-ended questions that get clients sharing their genuine wants and needs. By doing so, you will help them to move closer to the close.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
