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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
