Sales advice from Aleah Arundale.

When a client asks for something you don’t have, there’s a conundrum, says Aleah Arundale of the popular Jewelers Helping Jewelers Facebook group.

You can spend a lot of time and resources trying to get it — and sometimes you still don’t make the sale.

You can try to sell the person something you do have, but then you risk looking like you don’t care about the customer’s needs.

What to do?

In the video below, Arundale offers some ideas.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
