Keys to selling

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. 
 
 
WHY IT’S TRUE: Product information alone does not give you power. It is what you do with that information that makes your knowledge powerful. Your role is to manage the customer’s perception of value. The more you know about your product and your customer, the more added value you can provide. With today’s technology, customers have extensive access to information. Their challenge is to figure out what information is useful and what is not. The ability to validate that information is your power. 
 
 
PLAN OF ACTION: Gather information about customers and use it to remind them of important dates. Take advantage of every educational opportunity. Knowledge of current events is also a plus. Take action to become a resource to your community. Knowledge equals power; power equals trust, which is critical to closing the sale.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
