“Fanciest Mall in America” Takes E-Commerce to New Level

Bal Harbour Shops, a luxury shopping center in suburban Miami that has been called the “fanciest mall in America,” has launched an e-commerce platform that allows shoppers to buy products directly from its stores, Forbes writes.

Called Bal Harbour Shops Marketplace, it’s a curated selection of fashions and accessories that are currently featured at the mall’s stores. The goal of the platform is to allow its upscale clientele who are out of town, or who can’t make it to the mall, to browse the store windows online. Customers can pick up products at the store or have them delivered.

Additionally, the Marketplace incorporates heavy doses of content from its twice-yearly glossy magazine, twice-weekly newsletters and social media presence consisting of 250,000 followers.

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. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? 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.”
