Why a Mood Board Can Help You Connect with Your Customer

In her recently posted MasterClass on management, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour notes that one of designer Michael Kors’ greatest strengths is that “he understands absolutely who his customers are and responds to that with his creations.” To achieve something similar, she recommends setting up a mood or inspiration board in your back office, where you and your staff pin up visualizations of “who your customer is,” and other insights such as where you think she goes for holidays, where you think she might live, whether she is married or has children, and what kind of culture she is interested in. “All of this will feed into what you’re putting out there for the world to see and absorb and delight in,” Wintour says.

Over the years, INSTORE has won 80 international journalism awards for its publication and website. Contact INSTORE's editors at [email protected].

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

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.”
