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.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
