Always listen to your customer.

Allison Leitzel Williams, COO, Leitzel’s Jewelry, Myerstown, PA


Your customer is always telling you valuable information, but it is up to you to hear it. Sometimes, a customer tells us exactly what they are thinking and it makes our lives easy. Other times, we have to interpret what they are saying, such as when we handle their objections. Finally, we have to listen to unspoken words by analyzing customer patterns and sales data to determine what our customers are telling us. When we listen, we can overcome objections during the sales process and increase our closing ratio. We can predict fashion trends and make good buying decisions. We can adapt to customers’ wants, needs and budgets and target our marketing and inventory. Ultimately, we can make the best decisions for the success of our business and the happiness of our customers.

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.”
