This Is Where Jewelers’ Ad Dollars Are Flowing

The landscape has changed dramatically.

Jewelers were a little slow to jump on the online-advertising bandwagon, but they’ve been making up for that early skepticism in recent years.

As this chart from our recent Big Survey shows, print was by far the No. 1 advertising channel for jewelers in 2007, while fewer than 3 percent of jewelers were devoting the bulk of their advertising budget to sites such as Facebook or to SEO and email campaigns.

Ten years later and the advertising landscape has changed dramatically. Print has fallen out of favor, and online is surging.

Among the other channels, community event sponsorships have grown strongly over the last decade, while television has slipped and radio more or less held its own.

Look out for all the results of the 2017 Big Survey in the upcoming October edition of INSTORE.

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
