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.

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.”
