(PRESS RELEASE) The Plumb Club has added two new podcasts into their library of retail education tools. June’s podcasts deliver information and insights to retailers on the promotion of their stores. As stores are starting to reopen, promotion via advertising and PR is both timely and necessary for retailers looking to get business back, attract consumers and keep their stores in top of mind presence with consumers. Both podcasts provide strategies, knowledge and immediately actionable steps that will help retailers achieve these goals.

Advertising Myth-Busters – Expectancy vs. Reality by Brian Lazar gives insight into the “myths” of advertising and the reality of what the tactic can and can’t do. He explains advertising goals and how advertising can position a store. Further, he takes the listener through the execution of good advertising and the pros and cons of various ad placement vehicles. Brian Lazar is the vice president of sales and marketing with IGS Creative, a full-service advertising and marketing company specializing in the jewelry industry.

Public Relations Ground Rules – Growing Business Using PR by PR veterans, Heather Zachary and Melissa Berry will take listeners through the art of writing an effective press release and when it’s appropriate to use a media alert. They educate the retailer on how to build a media list and target appropriate editors with relevant messaging that compels them to run your story. Further, they give insight into the delicate art of “follow up” with the press and how to repurpose effectively on social media. Heather Zachary and Melissa Berry are founders of H&M Media, a boutique PR agency based in NYC that specializes in the jewelry and watch industry.

“Our podcasts are receiving great reviews from the industry,” said Lawrence Hess, Executive Director of The Plumb Club. “These podcasts give retailers another valuable tool to help them succeed, while fulfilling our mission to add value to the jewelry industry through education.”

Podcasts are added monthly. The newest podcasts, as well as the previous ones, are available on The Plumb Club website under the “Resources” tab: https://plumbclub.com/resources/

Wilkerson Testimonials

After 42 Years in Business, They Chose Wilkerson to Close Up Shop

After 42 years, it was time for Gina McHugh to hang up her bench tools and plan on doing something completely different. She and her husband, Mick, had a beautiful Binghamton, NY store — The Goldsmith — but in late 2019, the time felt right for retirement. They called Wilkerson. “They’d always been a part of our bridal jewelry selection,” says Gina, “and I felt really good about their quality and service. So, when we were looking for someone to work with us, Wilkerson was a natural.” With the kind of service and support Wilkerson is known for, Gina says their sales consultants made their retirement sale, “successful and quite easy.”
