Fun Contest By Artcarved Rewards “Question-Popping Blunders”



Fun Contest By Artcarved Rewards “Question-Popping Blunders”

Past social media contests have urged consumers to share their “perfect moments,” either engagement or love stories, with wedding ring brands to win prizes. Engagement and wedding ring designer ArtCarved has put a fun new spin on that idea by asking people for their not-so-perfect proposal moments. The winner will receive an ArtCarved engagement ring or wedding band and up to $1,000 to create a “re-proposal” that gives them a chance to get it right.

“Engagements, weddings, love and marriage are always held on a pedestal, with such sacred reverence that rarely leaves room for the humor that comes along with the mistakes and mishaps that inevitably happen to us all,” says Roxanne Rabasco, director of integrated marketing and communications at Frederick Goldman, Inc. “We wanted to do something that pokes fun at the stereotypes and celebrates those brave enough to admit how their most memorable day may not have been picture perfect.”

I absolutely love the sentiment behind this contest. It’s one thing to share a sappy love story on social media, but when you can get people having fun and sharing funny stories, you have something that can really take off. Equally important, it makes your brand seem like a fun, relatable brand. If you’re an ArtCarved retailer, now would be a great time to urge your own customers to enter the contest, which will make you seem “fun” by association.

Follow ArtCarved on Facebook to see how the contest progresses. The winner will be chosen on November 4.




Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
