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.

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.”
