Every jewelry salesperson knows you shouldn’t prejudge a customer.

But lots of people, well-intentioned as they may be, do so without realizing it.

In the video below, marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot explains that when someone comes in and doesn’t look like your “ideal customer,” your body language and word choices often reveal your true thoughts.

The truth is, you don’t know how much a person might be ready to spend. Focus on building relationships with your customers rather than prequalifying them, and you never know what might blossom.


You Might Be Pre-Judging Customers Even Though You Don’t Mean To

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
