Sales Truths: A Customer Is Buying a Moment

Key to sellingCUSTOMERS BUY WHAT THEY NEED FROM SALESPEOPLE WHO UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY WANT. 
 
WHY IT’S TRUE: A customer is looking for an engagement ring (need) but is really concerned about that moment he’s on his knee asking her to marry him (want). A customer is seeking an expensive gold watch (need) but is really looking forward to the compliments she’ll get when wearing it (want). 
 
PLAN OF ACTION: Engage the man in a conversation about how he plans to propose. Share stories of how others popped the question. Talk to the woman about the look and feel of the watch. I once heard a speaker say during a presentation, ?I’m sure you’ve noticed I’m wearing a watch on each wrist. One is a solid gold Rolex, the other is a Timex. The Rolex is for you, the Timex is for me.? When a customer knows that you know what he or she wants, your chance to close the sale significantly increases.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
