Why the Doghouse Is Bad for Him, But Good for You

Why is it true? Every man, regarding how hard he tries, is bound to end up in the doghouse at some time in his life. Getting out of the doghouse is critical — that’s why he’s in your store.

Plan of Action: The man says, “Boy, am I in the doghouse!” Rather than providing an immediate solution, ask him the critical question: “How big is that doghouse?” Knowing immediately that you have empathy for his plight, he will say something like, “This is a big doghouse.” Looking him in the eye with genuine understanding, say: “Let me show you what we’ve got to get out of the big doghouse.” Then take out a very nice piece you know she will like. That should close the sale and you will have a customer for life.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
