(PRESS RELEASE) NASHVILLE, TN — As shoppers put social distancing into practice, and more stores temporarily close, Harmon has jumped into action to help (safely) close the distance between retailers and their customers. To keep retailers constantly visible in their market, Harmon will create posts consisting of engaging visuals and copy, and boost them directly through the store’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, twice a week, eight times a month. They’ve reduced the cost by 40%, and made it commitment-free, meaning retailers can participate by the month. Harmon will only be running this special rate until the current situation is resolved and business resumes as usual.

“As a member of the jewelry community for over thirty years, we knew we had to step up and provide support,” says Rick Arnemann, CEO of Harmon. “We’re doing this at our cost, but know that with social distancing going on, this is an especially difficult time for retailers. This program is going to put your store in front of those jewelry shoppers in your market who are sitting at home, bored and scrolling through social media.”

These are just a few of the benefits retailers experience by signing up:

  • There are no contracts or commitments. Retailers can do this for one month or three. You just pay by your credit card.
  • Harmon boosts each post to a specifically targeted audience based on their interests and other factors. That means only jewelry shoppers or people interested in jewelry see the posts.
  • Each post is geo-targeted; that means only people in your market see your posts.
  • You can choose from Harmon’s library of 1,000s of branded and generic jewelry images and videos to use as post content.
  • Harmon writes specific copy for each post, and they’ll keep it light and entertaining.
  • You’ll receive a content calendar of each month’s upcoming posts.
  • You’ll receive analytics showing the performance and response rate for each post.
  • The program is only $599 a month. That’s 40% off Harmon’s regular social media program price, and includes everything—visuals, copywriting, boosting costs paid directly to Facebook and Instagram, posting management, content calendar creation, and analytics.

“Right now, it’s very important that you continue to market to customers, and that you keep your message entertaining and informative,” continues Arnemann. “You have a captive audience at home, who are probably already tired of their in-home entertainment. Through this program, you’re providing them fresh, beautiful content, and they’ll remember that.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
