Social Media and Marketing Strategies for Your Jewelry Store

Get­ting start­ed as a jew­el­ry brand is won­der­ful­ly excit­ing! Jew­el­ry store mar­ket­ing options are end­less and col­ored well with char­ac­ter. One thing you must com­mit to from the begin­ning is defin­ing your brand and remain­ing loy­al to this iden­ti­ty through­out all of your mar­ket­ing endeav­ors.

Let’s take a look at the top tips for all small jew­el­ry busi­ness­es to ensure the most suc­cess for your brand.

  • Iden­ti­ty. Defin­ing your brand is pos­si­bly the most impor­tant task you will take on in the start­up of your busi­ness. Find your niche. Don’t go after every­one who has ever browsed a glass case with dia­monds on the inside. What do you offer and to whom does it speak? Is it turquoise that a 1960s junkie wants to remind them of the decade’s spir­it­ed aes­thet­ic? Or clean sil­ver lines that speak to the mod­ern min­i­mal­ist? Brand­ing is a sci­ence. Com­pile what you sell and who buys it, and build the sto­ry around these start­ing points.
  • Be Social. Social media in Detroit has a nature of its own. If there’s one thing we’ve learned about our city, it’s our need to con­nect and to share. Remain active on your social pages- this means Insta­gram, Snapchat, Pin­ter­est and Face­book at least. Iden­ti­fy where your cus­tomers like to chat the most, and start up the con­ver­sa­tion there.
  • Cus­tomer-focused. Include cus­tomer con­tent when­ev­er pos­si­ble. This might look like post­ing one of their pho­tos on your feed or fea­tur­ing a loy­al con­sumer in a blog post. Post­ing real pho­tos of real con­sumers in is an awe­some way to keep your mar­ket­ing authen­tic, too.
  • Cre­ate a mem­o­rable hash­tag. Hash­tag­ging has pret­ty much rede­fined com­mu­ni­ca­tion, link­ing everyone’s pho­tos and mes­sages to one anoth­er with just a string of let­ters. Craft a tag that embod­ies your brand vibe, but that is catchy enough for con­sumers to remem­ber and to want to use in their pho­tos.
  • Gath­er influ­encers. Social media influ­encers are your best friend. Browse oth­er brands’ influ­encers, and see if you can part­ner with them, their friends, their fol­low­ers or with the peo­ple whom they engage with the most. Per­haps you have a few fol­low­ers who are the most loy­al to your brand – com­ment­ing on and lik­ing every­thing you put up. Ask them to sup­port you and be an ambas­sador; they already love you!
  • Keep it fresh. Refresh your social media pages at least once a month. Cus­tomers appre­ci­ate see­ing new designs and what you’re up to behind the scenes (espe­cial­ly in the off-sea­son if you have one).
  • Stay rel­e­vant. Even though ongo­ings of the world in the news do not always direct­ly influ­ence your brand, it’s impor­tant to stay rel­e­vant in the con­ver­sa­tion. Curate a feed that makes it easy for you to receive dai­ly news. Choose when a sto­ry is inter­est­ing enough to share with your fol­low­ers. They’ll appre­ci­ate you stay­ing up to date and respect you for shar­ing con­tent that is reflec­tive of your brand’s inter­ests.
  • Con­sid­er pay­ing. Adver­tis­ing on Pin­ter­est is espe­cial­ly reward­ing for jew­el­ry brands. The audi­ence is vir­tu­al­ly built in for you, mak­ing the adver­tis­ing con­tent seam­less. If you are con­sid­er­ing Face­book, it is imper­a­tive that you selec­tive­ly hone in on a Face­book tar­get audi­ence. This will gen­er­ate the newest fol­low­ers, and in turn, give you the most bang for your buck. An Insta­gram adver­tis­ing cam­paign is anoth­er valu­able invest­ment. You will con­nect with oth­er, like-mind­ed brands, find new ambas­sadors and a ton of new brand enthu­si­asts and loy­al­ists.
