Red Carpet Season, International Flirting Week and More Fun Dates Await in February

Senior Independence Month is your chance to reach an under-served market.





1 National Senior Independence Month is held to encourage the sharing of local resources to help the elderly live independent and full lives. That sounds like something you may want to get involved with. Roll out a pickup and delivery service for older customers who need repairs or would like to see a curated selection of your best classic jewelry. Seniors are a key if sometimes constrained market.

3 Today is the 20th National Wear Red Day to raise awareness about heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women in the U.S. Get involved in a business or community activity or host your own red themed party. From rubies to V-Day, the options are limitless for a jeweler.

6 Music’s biggest night — aka the 65th Annual Grammy Awards — kicks off Red Carpet season. Slip into fashion-maven mode and get your customers excited about jewelry’s cutting-edge trends with a series of posts or tweets on what’s hot and what to look out for.

12 Ahead of INTERNATIONAL FLIRTING WEEK, write a blog post and a press release with your list of Top 10 flirting tips. (Tip #3 – interesting jewelry can serve as a prop and an ice-breaker!)



When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
