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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
