True Tales: Bentley (the Dog) Acts Badly

Published

on

I always bring my Shih-Tzu, Bentley, to work with me. My clients love him. He is always so friendly and makes them feel welcome. Well, one day this couple brought their son, who looked to be about 6 years old, into the store. We are sitting there and I’m trying to sell them wedding bands and my darling dog Bentley hops up on their son’s leg and starts humping away! The little boy doesn’t know what he’s doing and just bursts into laughter. My face was bright red! The couple was trying to keep a straight face because I’m sure they didn’t want to get into a discussion of the birds and the bees. After a struggle, the mother managed to get Bentley off his leg and well, he just jumped up again and kept going at it. The fiancé finally said, “Well, we might as well let him finish.” They still bought the wedding bands from me.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
