Sales Truths: If You Fail To Plan, Plan To Fail

IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN, PLAN TO FAIL. 
 
WHY IT’S TRUE: If you have no plan for your life, how will you know where you are going and, how will you know when you have arrived? Without a business or family plan, or meaningful goals, how can you structure your life to get the most out of it? 
 
 
PLAN OF ACTION: Establish specific measurable goals with your salespeople. Break them down by month, week and day. A daily plan might be to select your favorite piece in the entire store and commit to show it at least two times every day. Choose your favorite because you are enthusiastic and excited when you talk about it. Commit to trying (just trying) for one add-on sale every day. If you did only this, what would happen to your business? A simple plan when well executed will not fail.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
