Fun Contest By Artcarved Rewards “Question-Popping Blunders”

Published

on

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 (www.facebook.com/artcarvedbridal) to see how the contest progresses. The winner will be chosen on November 4.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
