Facebook Could Give You a Holiday Sales Boost … If You Do It Right

Investing a couple of hours in truly understanding how social media advertising works could save you time and money.

Morgan Nicki Saatchi of SVS Fine Jewelry in Oceanside, NY, admits that Facebook advertising was “Greek to her” until she spent a couple of weeks listening to experts presenting webinars on the topic. Now, Facebook has replaced traditional media as the company’s advertising of choice.

“We target ads to an age demographic who have an interest in the particular product or event,” Saatchi says. The store has about 20,000 followers, and online sales are up to 15 percent of total sales.
Online purchase price points are generally less than $1,000.

Using bitly has helped Saatchi track online sales that come via Facebook ads. The website provides detailed analytics that show where the traffic and the purchase came from.

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.”
