Sales Truths: Words Can Turn Off Customers

WHY IT'S TRUE 
A customer says, “I think my watch needs a new battery; can you fix it?” Your answer: “No problem.” Not only do we hear these two words every day, we say them every day. If the words “no problem” are so negative, why do we use them?  
 
 
 
PLAN OF ACTION 
Instead, respond by saying, “It would be my pleasure, sir; and while I'm at it why don't we clean your watch for you?” The words “my pleasure” are a sign of genuine interest. Offering an add-on service gives the customer an unexpected benefit … free! Who knows, they just might be willing to look at something in the jewelry case while they are waiting.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
