CONGRATULATIONS! Ninety-five percent of you are active on social media for business purposes. And you’re spending more time on it, too.

Nearly a third of jewelers spend an hour or more a day on keeping their social media sites up to date, versus about one in 10 who were investing that much time five years ago, according to INSTORE’s Big Survey.

The biggest leap came with Instagram, which debuted in 2010. By 2012, only 4 percent of jewelers surveyed reported trying out Instagram; now 58 percent spend time there. Facebook, of course, is still the most popular and was already well established in 2012, with 92 percent logging on then and 93 percent now. While 10 percent reported using no social media in 2012, holdouts five years later are down to 5 percent. You know who you are!

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
