The Google Game: How Luxury Jeweler Brands Target the Affluent With Different Search Strategy

Branded keywords taking priority over more generic search terms.

According to a new report on the online search strategies of luxury watch and jewelry brands, the majority of those labels have turned to organic and paid search leads using branded terms to drive website traffic, writes Luxury Daily. The article says this strategy strengthens the search presence of luxury brands who previously used unbranded keywords like “timepiece” and “engagement ring,” which yielded more results for department stores and other retail outlets that cater to mass-market consumers.

“Luxury brands have taken a much more nuanced approach towards reaching their target customer,” said Elizabeth Elder, research associate at L2. “They don’t want the customers who are shopping for lower-priced items, so they are willing to sacrifice visibility on certain keywords in order to strategically align themselves with the right market.”

But, the article adds, unbranded terms shouldn’t be considered unsuitable for luxury brands. Elder offers an example: “A luxury consumer might have an idea for a type of ring she is looking for: a gold ring, maybe a Cartier Love ring. However, Piaget just released their newest Possessions collection. Piaget can bid on unbranded terms such as ‘gold’ and ‘ring’ to help promote its new collection and drive that shopper away from Cartier to Piaget.”

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.”
