YOU MIGHT BE TEMPTED to send out postcards, and lots of them, when you do a direct mail campaign. After all, you can reach lots of people at a relatively low cost.

But this isn’t necessarily a good area to pinch pennies, says Jim Ackerman.

Ackerman has worked with jewelers who had huge success with sales letters sent to a more targeted audience. They cost more to send on a per-piece basis, but the payoff can be significant.

He knows one jeweler, on fact, who sent a mailing at a cost of $3.49 per piece — and turned a huge profit!

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
