(PRESS RELEASE)Social media interaction is now woven throughout most Americans’ daily lives. 90% of Millennials, 77% of Gen X, and 48% of Baby Boomers are active social media users, some may spend on an average three hours per day scrolling and messaging.

The images, articles, and ads that users scroll past on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter inform buying decisions more than ever. This is true even, or especially, for higher price and luxury purchases, as consumers research everything from couches to cars online.

Independent jewelers must take advantage of social media to get in front of prospects and guide their decisions, even without paid advertising. The key is to use your feeds to show the human face of your brand.

Showcase Your Values and Personality

The content you create for social media should be different from content for your website or newsletter because you can share posts up to multiple times a day. This gives you an opportunity to get highly personal, specific, and creative with your messaging.

When visitors come to your social media profile, what would you like them to learn about you? Think beyond products and promotions to the values of your business and personality of your team, then communicate these through attention-grabbing images and captions.

For example, rather than sharing a generic photo of a diamond ring and writing “We have the best deals,” share a photo of an excited customer flashing her new engagement ring and write “We live to put smiles like these on every customer’s face!”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
