Sales Truths: Make Quality Claims at the Right Time

QUALITY CLAIMS, MADE TOO EARLY, NEVER IMPRESS. 
 
WHY IT’S TRUE: Customers expect your store and merchandise to be of quality or they wouldn’t be there in the first place. If you open by bragging about your store’s quality or making unsupported statements about your knowledge and expertise, you’ll bore the customer.  
 
 
PLAN OF ACTION: Greet the customer in an open friendly manner; find out what their needs, wants and passions are; and focus your presentation around them. Demonstrate your expertise by asking open-ended questions. Listen carefully to the customer’s answer and when appropriate, validate your answer with a quality claim. Customers come into your store because they need help. Enhance their perception of this buying experience and most of the quality questions will answer themselves.

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
