This Time, We’re Bringing Out The Big Guns.

on

In this month’s lead feature in Instore, we did extensive interivews with some of America’s most successful jewelry salespeople ? doing our best to get inside their heads, learn what makes them tick, and find the secrets of their success. 

The most striking thing about this month’s lead is the sheer variety of different approaches that America’s best salespeople use to make sales. There’s Alfred Molina of Molina Fine Jewelers in Phoenix, AZ, who, through a combination of confidence and personal style, literally charms money out of his customer’s wallets. Then, there’s Kanti Gopalja of Levinson Jewelers in Plantation, FL, who wins over buyers with his perfect courtesy, extensive knowledge and dedicated customer service. And let’s not forget Geoffrey Stern of Geoffrey’s Diamonds & Goldsmith in San Carlos, CA, who takes the Comedy Central approach to selling jewelry ? making his customers laugh so much that each visit to his store is an event they will remember long after they leave.  

With the holiday season sprinting up upon us, we think you’ll find this special package particularly useful. But more than that, we hope you’ll find it inspirational, filled with success stories that will give you and your salespeople ideas to use and goals to to shoot for during the year’s most important selling period. (I mean, who wouldn’t want to have a sales streak like Molina, who once sold $14.8 million worth of jewelry in a single day. You’re probably wondering, what did Alfred eat that day? And where can I get some?) Actually, we don’t have that answer for you, but we do have many others. Special sales techniques? Customer-service secrets? Books to read? How to get out of a big sales slump? You’ll find it all here, in our special look at America’s top sellers. 

Wishing you the very best business …

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
