BY POPULAR DEMAND, Shane O’Neill of INSTORE Marketing returns alongside INSTORE editor-in-chief Trace Shelton to talk social media, including how to craft engaging copy, which type of content triggers action, how to target the best audience for your message and what you should be spending. Social media has evolved quickly since its inception, and using the various media as advertising vehicles can be a complex proposition. O’Neill makes the case that with not a lot of effort, stores can provide engaging, personal content that clients will value, especially in the realm of video.

Over the course of the webinar, O’Neill and Shelton discuss Facebook, YouTube and Instagram (the three most recommended forms of social media for retail jewelers) and how each is best utilized. They talk about how retail jewelers should have a “social content curator” on staff to make sure that good content is generated on a regular basis — and how that curator can work with an agency to ensure that the content is placed and edited correctly. The discussion wraps up with a Q&A with viewers that addresses topics like the value of scheduled posts, how to promote a new YouTube channel, an overview of Facebook advertising, how important are “conversions,” examples of strong “content curators” and more.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
