Donald Trump’s election represents a major promotional opportunity for Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry and other Trump brands, the Washington Post reports.

And the Trump companies appear ready to jump at the chance.

Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump recently appeared on “60 Minutes” to talk about her father’s election.

Soon afterward, the jewelry brand sent a “style alert” to the media. It noted that a piece of jewelry that Ivanka Trump wore on the show, the 18-karat Metropolis diamond bangle, was available for $10,800.

The alert represented “one of the first moments since the election during which the Trump companies have sought to use Trump’s presidential prominence to boost their private fortunes,” according to the Post.

Ethics experts say conflicts of interest could arise during Trump’s presidency because of his many business holdings.

Abigail Klem, president of the Ivanka Trump brand, told the Post that many in the company are “still making adjustments post-election.”

He said the brand is “proactively discussing new policies and procedures with all of our partners going forward.”

Interest in Ivanka Trump’s brands increased as a result of the Trump campaign, according to the Post.

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.”
