When she posts a piece, it takes about five minutes to sell.

Jen Marlow doesn’t have a website, but the 25-year-old antique turquoise dealer and jewelry designer is proving it’s possible to run a successful e-commerce operation without one, as Vogue writes. Relying almost exclusively on Instagram to sell her pieces, they’re typically claimed within five minutes of the time she posts them, the article says. With 23,000 people following her brand, Sweet Silver Leaf, it’s easy to see why. Finding the turquoise, however, takes some work, as the article says she spends a great deal of time in a van (which she used to live in) scouring flea markets and estate sales.

Alrighty first batch of stackers available for $55 shipped. SOLD

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.”
