LANDSBERG JEWELERS (WHITE PLAINS, NY)

When Jonathan and Jeffrey Landsberg opened Landsberg Jewelers’ new third location at the Ritz- Carlton Hotel in White Plains, NY, they teamed with the Ritz and Luxe Magazine and introduced three new designer lines: Faith Ann Kiely, Royal Asscher, and Jack Vartanian. The mayor of White Plains handled the ribbon-cutting, and more than 150 guests attended.

INTERVIEW WITH JONATHAN LANDSBERG, OWNER, AND VINNY PERUGINI, MARKETING AND ADVERTISING DIRECTOR

How successful was the event?
“We are seeing and feeling the results of the event to this day. Guest who didn’t purchase that evening have come back and purchased items weeks later.”

WHAT WERE THE CHALLENGES OF HOSTING THE EVENT?
“The evening was very challenging because the space is a lot smaller then we are used to working with. We had a difficult time helping everyone and making sure things were secure. All in all, we did make quite a few sales that evening, in spite of the large amount of people who attended.”

HOW DID WORKING WITH THE RITZ-CARLTON ADD TO THE EXPERIENCE?
“They have never participated in a situation where three luxury brands came together to produce an event, but it went off without hitch. Guests had the pleasure of tasting some of the chef’s latest culinary creations. A signature cocktail was created along with a cookie with our logo. The curiosity of customers wanting to view our newest location and the level of luxury that the Ritz-Carlton brand gives made for a wonderful evening.”

WHAT WAS IT LIKE WORKING WITH LUXE MAGAZINE?
“We have worked with Luxe for the past two years, and they are a wonderful media partner. Luxe assisted with designing the invitation, supplying the photographer, mailing the invitations and scheduling e-blasts to promote the event.”

How was the event promoted?
“Over three hundred invitations were mailed to our customers’ homes. We also sent out three e-blasts inviting customers and friends to the event. A special email was sent out to all the Ritz-Carlton residents, inviting them down to celebrate the evening with us. Luxe Magazine also sent e-blasts to local clients and subscribers.”

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.”
