Buy Now, Pay Later?

By Shane O’Neill, Vice President There’s a “new” e-commerce payment option trend that’s growing fast, referred to as Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL). While the concept isn’t actually new, platforms like Affirm do make implementation simpler, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. The question is, is it right for your store, and could it help in growing...

Success Strategies for 2022

By Ellen Fruchtman, President If we have learned anything over the course of the last few years, it is our ability to pivot and look straight in the eye of adversity. Now it’s 2022. And, in some ways, the news is the same, and perhaps life in 2019 will never be achieved again. All that being said,...

Jewelers, Take These Three Vows In 2022

By Angie Ash, Executive Vice President  The starting gun to the holiday shopping frenzy has blasted and, as retail jewelers, you know the coming weeks are going to be a sprint to Christmas. Once you’ve reached the finish line, nobody will want a very large glass of wine and fuzzy slippers more than you. But, before you’re...

By Shane O'Neill, Vice President On October 28, 2021, Facebook officially changed its name to Meta. Oh, you didn’t notice this on Facebook itself because Meta is a publicly-traded company and Facebook is just one of their assets.

The Most Valuable Brand? Your Own.

By Angie Ash, Executive Vice President We see it all too often. Retail jewelers getting hung up on the brands they carry. And we get it, especially if they offer a generous co-op program. Of course, you want to utilize those dollars when it makes sense. However, keep this in mind. The vast majority of jewelry brands...

TikTok or NOT.

by Shane O’Neill, Vice President There’s a new shiny penny in the social media marketing world and it’s called TikTok. Everyone is talking about how you should add it to your marketing mix, but should you? Sure, TikTok is fun and cool, but is it the right audience at the right time for a retail jeweler? Before...

Storytime.

By Ellen Fruchtman, President  Have you heard about the best way to build your brand? It’s through salience. The word by itself according to the Oxford Dictionary means “the quality of being particularly noticeable or important; prominence”. In marketing, it has everything to do with becoming top of mind when the consumer is making (or considering) a...

You Lost a Big Brand. Now What?

by Angie Ash, EVP When retailers gain partnerships with big brands, the proverbial roller coaster ride that ensues is surely more thrilling than scary. Your clientele changes from the merely upscale customer to the one with an abundance of money to spare. You know, the ones that don’t bat an eye when it comes to purchasing something...
