Craft 10 Silver Bullet ‘Reassurance’ Closes to Win More Customers |  January 08, 2021 (0 comments)


Green Bay, WI--Customers can buy most anything they want online or from other jewelry stores, so why should they buy from you? Training pro Jimmy DeGroot of of the store training web site explains how to overcome this challenge and set your store apart in this very useful combo column and video.

My friend Brad Huisken says it really well," says DeGroot. “When people walk through your doors to buy jewelry, they’re not really looking to buy jewelry but they’re looking for a place to buy jewelry.”

They can buy it anywhere of course, so why should your store be that place? What’s great about you and your jewelry store?

This is information store management and the sales team truly need to have on the tip of their tongues. It needs to be about why this store more so than why this piece. 

These are known as “Reassurance Closes,” explains DeGroot. They can also be viewed as “Silver Bullets” and they truly help customers to solidify in their brains the decision of why to buy from you. We want them thinking: “This is the place I’m buying my diamond; this is my jeweler.”

DeGroot feels strongly that every store needs at least 10 of these and if you don’t have them now get your team together and come up with a list now. “The list doesn’t necessarily have to be only things that are unique to your jewelry store," he adds. "We just need to be able to tell the story and tell it better than anyone else out there. Hardly anyone out there is doing this!”
