Social media is important, but it’s not everything.

At this point, it’s no secret that millennials tick a bit differently than their forebears. And it’s also no secret that a key to success in modern retail is crafting marketing messages that resonate with young consumers as their purchasing power grows. To that end, Rapaport Magazine’s latest issue is strictly dedicated to millennials, asking on its front cover, “Who are they, and what do they want?”

In the magazine, there’s a Q&A feature in which seven jewelry retailers are asked how they market to millennials and what kind of shoppers they are. Staying active on social media is a common thread in the responses, though there are other marketing strategies that jewelers are employing, such as advertising through digital radio services (i.e. Spotify, Pandora, etc.).

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale.

They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
