Here’s the Best Way to Get Your Event Noticed


Are you planning a cool event, like a choir singing in your store or a sommelier bringing specialty wines for a tasting, in your store during the holiday season?

To make sure the event gets the attention it deserves, be sure to contact local media, says Jen Cullen Williams of Luxury Brand Group.

And that invitation should include local bloggers, even if they don’t specialize in jewelry or fashion. Lifestyle or “mommy” bloggers have influence in the community, too.

Invite publishers of local newspapers and magazines who might bring along an editor. Consider partnering with a magazine that would be willing to provide you with a photographer as an added value for your advertising business.
Another way to get your name in the spotlight is to call local media and offer to provide expert tips on the anticipated holiday hot sellers.

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.
