[h2][b]Patient History  [/b][/h2]
Snowden’s Jewelers has been in business for over 17 years, and according to its website, Chris Snowden has been in the business “his entire life.” It’s located in Wilmington, NC, and exclusively sells the Original Wilmington Destination Bracelet at the store. This color ad appears in the coastal and tourist magazines in the store’s area.

I love the notion of something exclusively designed and sold at a store especially if the location is in a heavy tourist area. According to Chris, the ad was originated by Montesino (the bracelet designer that sells these bracelets to jewelers across the country) — and enhanced by his own graphic designer. The ad is no more than a one-column by 4-inch ad, so I have but one thing to say: Chris, have you ever heard the saying “less is more?” How much copy can you fit into this tiny ad? I actually had to change my reading glasses from a 2.00 magnification to 2.50 just to see what you had to say!

Pop for the extra inch or two. If it’s really worth selling, let’s not try to make your prospective customers go cross-eyed trying to see it. And it’s OK to leave something for your salespeople to talk about when customers come to your store. And by the way, I don’t notice your website in the ad — where you really have the space to talk about the bracelet. But don’t make me scroll, Chris. After all, as William Shakespeare once wrote, “Brevity is the soul of wit.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | MSG Jewelers

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
