Sales Truths: What You See is What You Get

Keys to sellingWHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET. 
 
WHY IT’S TRUE: You buy a beautifully marbled steak and cook it on your grill. What you get is a tasty dinner if you were observant during the cooking process. If you overcook it because you weren’t paying attention, what you get is a piece of shoe leather. So what you see is what you get.  
 
 
PLAN OF ACTION: You are presenting a diamond necklace to a woman, and she reaches into her purse and removes her wallet. Did you see her reach into her purse, or were you looking at the necklace? When the customer is looking in the case or admiring the necklace in the mirror, you should be looking at her face. Do her cheeks change color? Do her pupils dilate? Is she smiling? Is she lightly touching the necklace? These are clear buying signals. She is taking possession of the necklace right in front of you. Now is the time to 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.”
