Sales Truths: People Are Most Likely To Buy From the People Most Like Themselves

TRUTH #2 PEOPLE ARE MORE LIKELY TO BUY FROM THE PEOPLE MOST LIKE THEMSELVES. 
 
WHY IT’S TRUE:
Because jewelry has such great emotional value, customers are more comfortable buying from salespeople with whom they feel a close rapport. An engineer buying from a fast- talking, quick-acting salesperson, might perceive that sales person to be just a little pushy. Conversely a slow-speaking, knowledgeable salesperson might be looked upon by an upbeat, fast-talking customer as slow, dull, or non-caring. 
 
PLAN OF ACTION: We all have our own way of speaking ? it’s who we are. But do try to practice consciously matching the tone of a customer’s voice (loud, soft ), and their tempo (fast, slow). The result? Better rapport.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
