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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
