Jewelry Marketing Strategies for the New Year

Here are five tips to usher in a prosperous new year!


Jewelry Marketing Strategies for the New Year | Nile Corp


Christmas has come and gone, so is the shopping hype. Now you're left with either excess inventory or none at all. So how do you continue on selling well in the new year? What strategies should you do to have better sales next year? If you have the same questions in mind, you’re in luck. Below are a few ideas.


Replenish your inventory



Jewelry Marketing Strategies for the New Year | Nile Corp

Adding new pieces to your inventory is a must even if you have excess pieces. Your customers would want to see new designs, colors, and styles. Otherwise, they’ll get bored with your products and check out the next jewelry store. Keep them interested in your brand and products by surprising them with new jewelry they never thought you’d have available.


Redesign your store display

As with your jewelry pieces for sale, getting a shop display makeover is a must. You cannot let Christmas and the new year pass and not change your store decors. Get a new necklace display and other jewelry organizers with colors that will fit your whole new display theme. Since ultra violet is Pantone’s color of the year this 2018, you can get jewelry displays in that color to attract more shoppers. You can also go for an early Valentine theme and go for reds and pinks.


Run early Valentine’s Day promotions.



Jewelry Marketing Strategies for the New Year | Nile Corp


Build a hype this early for Valentine’s Day contests. Set up promotions that will excite your customers and will keep them anticipating. You can do this both in-store and online for maximum exposure. Utilize all your social media channels so many people can participate. Do not forget to include terms and conditions, though, to avoid problems at the end of the promotions.


Get yourself exposed.


Jewelry Marketing Strategies for the New Year | Nile Corp


Look for trade or craft shows in your area in January to further maximize your exposure. Or, if you have the means, you can set up one yourself. Talk to various potential sponsors if you can. Make sure it’s going to be held in a location where many people can attend. Once everything is set, get the word out there through your social media accounts, set up posters in your jewelry shop and give away flyers whenever a customer makes a purchase.


Send emails to your past customers.


Jewelry Marketing Strategies for the New Year | Nile Corp


Make your customers remember you by saying hi! A simple, straightforward email would mean a lot. Avoid hard-selling though; doing so might turn them off instead of enticing them. Ask how the new year’s treating them and inform them of your new jewelry pieces for sale. You can also send a calendar of your events if you already have them set. Lastly, you can provide a coupon code to entice them to buy from your site or your shop.

Why People Love Minimalist Displays

Find out why the frills-free style is a hit with businesses and customers alike.



Why People Love Minimalist Displays | Nile Corp


What is the minimalist style? It’s having a bare minimum amount of clothing in your wardrobe, along with a few selection of colors and simple designs and patterns. In the interior design industry, minimalism is basically keeping things few and simple; instead of filling rooms with furniture, just keep ones that you need. The common denominator is simplicity.


In the fashion and architecture and design fields, minimalism is popular. It’s sophisticated and respected. No wonder even shop displays follow this style. This week, we’ll be tackling the reasons why people love it, as well as provide display suggestions for you to achieve the less-is-more look.


Easy on the eyes

Because there isn’t much to see in a minimalist display, your eyes won’t get stressed looking at too many things. There isn’t much going on, and so your brain doesn’t need to process too much information. Hooray for a stress-free brain!

Nile Corp recommends the Single T-Bar Display.


Shop Nile Corp Wholesale Single T-Bar Display


This necklace display is perfect atop either a black or white table. No need to add any more decors if you’re going for a minimalist look. This t-bar can hold not only necklaces but also bangles and bracelets.


Clutter-less

A clutter less place exudes positive, light energy and makes you feel better. It also looks clean, elegant, and expensive. Everything is in its place, and it's easier to look for things.

Nile Corp recommends the Acrylic Rotating Makeup Organizer Lipstick Rack Brush Holder.


Shop Nile Corp Wholesale Acrylic Rotating Makeup Organizer Lipstick Rack Brush Holder


The Acrylic Rotating Makeup Organizer Lipstick Rack Brush Holder is a great display to organize lipsticks and other makeup tools. It allows you to quickly find that particular lip shade or makeup brush you need.


Straightforward

A minimalist display is a straightforward display. It’s much easier to sell a product with fewer frills. Your customer will immediately see the product and lessen the steps of the consumer-buying process.

Nile Corp recommends the Metal Arrows Jewelry Display.


Shop Nile Corp Wholesale Metal Arrows Jewelry Display Jewelry Stand Hanger Organizer


Minimalism gets even more elegant with monochrome colors. Instead of getting displays with bright patterns and many colors, go for something with just one or two colors, like this Metal Arrows Jewelry Display.


Low maintenance

And because there isn’t much in the display, it’s way easier to clean and maintain. No need to move around so much stuff or ruin perfectly positioned stands and organizers.

Nile Corp recommends the Acrylic Ring Stand.




Acrylic displays are the perfect low maintenance jewelry displays. You only need a cleaning brush to remove dust and dirt, while a lint-free cloth is ideal for removing fingerprints and other marks.


Inexpensive

Lastly, because you don’t need a lot of other decors and displays, having a minimalist-themed jewelry shop does not require you to break the bank. You can opt using display sets or the popular wire displays that can hold not only necklaces but other jewelry pieces as well.

Nile Corp recommends the Metal Heart Shape Jewelry Display Organizer.


Shop Nile Corp Wholesale Metal Heart Shape Jewelry Display Organizer



This metal jewelry display organizer can hold all jewelry pieces. It has 20 hooks for tangle-free necklaces and bracelets, a bar with holes for hook earrings, and a base tray for rings and other earrings. Plus, the metal display has a feminine pink color your female customers would love.

Tips for a Festive Jewelry Display

Attract more customers this Christmas season with a beautiful festive display.



Tips for a Festive Jewelry Display | Nile Corp

Your Christmas inventory’s ready, but you haven’t come up yet with a display that would awe passersby. You can't just go with sparkles and glitters, as almost all of the stores would go for these. Simple Christmas decors would be dull and certainly not striking enough. If you still can’t decide on how to design your display, allow us to help you. Here are some tips for a festive jewelry display.


Color palette



Tips for a Festive Jewelry Display | Nile Corp

It’s always safe to go with the traditional Christmas colors -- red, green, and gold. But don’t be afraid to be a little different. You can go with blue, white and black if you wish to go for an arctic look. Blue, purple, and gold are perfect for an enchanting fairytale-inspired palette. You can always choose a photo from Pinterest for inspiration, and that’s where you base the colors you plan to use. Just remember to stick to your selected colors so it won’t look messy or out of place.


Lights



Tips for a Festive Jewelry Display | Nile Corp
A display with exceptionally beautiful lighting is guaranteed to awe anyone who sees it. Use warm lights to remind them of cozying up with a book by the fireplace. Warm lights give off a homey, festive feel. Focus the brighter lights on the jewelry pieces, especially the best selling ones. However, lighting still depends on your theme. If you’re going for a rustic, homey feel, warm lights are the way to go. If you prefer an enchanting, arctic feel, go with white and blue lights.


Christmas decorations



Tips for a Festive Jewelry Display | Nile Corp

You can never go wrong with traditional Christmas decorations like wreaths, pine cones, and mistletoe. Sprinkle some fake snow on your necklace display, earring display, etc. If you have a lot of free time, you can DIY most of these decorations and customize it as you see fit. If you’re too busy to, you can always purchase ready-made decorations. Remember to get ones with the colors of your chosen palette.


Images on the walls



Tips for a Festive Jewelry Display | Nile Corp
Put up photos or paintings that can appeal to the emotions of your customers. It’s always a good idea to connect with your customers emotionally. According to studies, we use emotions to help us decide what to buy. Hang photos of happy couples wearing your jewelry, or a wedding proposal photos. You can also target families, like a mother and daughter wearing matching pieces. All these, of course, should have a Christmas theme.

Tips for Setting Up a Jewelry Studio Workshop

Here are some tips on how to keep your studio a great place to work at.



Tips on how to make your studio great place to workout


Holding jewelry-making workshops is one way to brand your jewelry business and maximize exposure. It’s one of the strategies a startup business can do to make their business known in the local area. Also, studies have shown that beading classes have developmental benefits to children, which is great if you also plan to partner with a nonprofit organization or charity.


If you are a startup jewelry business in need of a jewelry-making studio for workshops, then you’re at the right place. Without further ado, here’s a list of some tips on how to set up a workshop studio.


Lighting



Make a perfect lighting.


Lighting is important, especially if you are going to work with small beads and intricate designs. But because most beads and other jewelry making materials are shiny and may be hard to the eyes, lighting should not be very bright. Natural light is the best one to use, so your workshop should have big windows where the sun rays can shine through. If you don’t have access to natural light or mostly hold workshops at night, you can install a combination of daylight and white light bulbs. This combination will allow you to see the actual colors, as opposed to using just one of the two.


Ventilation



Create a proper ventilation for your workout.


One cannot work in a place where there is no proper ventilation, especially if you are working with glue guns and do a lot of soldering. Some materials like acrylic paint and epoxy resin may be hazardous to lung health too. That said, you should install an exhaust fan which can suck out all the harmful fumes. Ducted hoods are also another option, which is the stronger version of the exhaust fan, as well as chemical air filters to clean the air.


Jewelry display



Create a space for your master pieces, example jewelry displays.


You should also have space where you can showcase your finished masterpieces for everyone to see and admire. A small desk is just fine, as long as it can accommodate a display set that includes a necklace display, earring display, and ring display. You can use this desk to place inspiration as well -- this could be a book, a photo, or even color palettes.


Chairs of varying heights



Always remember that chair with different heights is a necessity for creating a jewelry making shop.
Source: T4stools.win

Chairs of different heights are a necessity in a jewelry-making workshop. You should have separate chairs for soldering operations, for beading, and for painting. Having stools of just the same height might be uncomfortable to sit on in other activities. However, if you have the budget, you can also invest in slightly pricey adjustable chairs or stools. Do make sure that all the chairs that you’re going to use are sturdy to prevent any accidents from happening.


Music



Play a good music for relaxation and to set the mood.

Playing some feel good music is one of the many ways to set the mood. It can also spark creativity and inspiration for some. In fact, many known painters listened to music while working on their masterpieces. You can opt for some calming classical music; think Tchaikovsky, Bach, Mozart, and Chopin. Coffee shop music such as jazz and soul work well too. As for the volume, set it on just the right amount, as loud music can distract you instead of inspiring you.

What to Do With Excess Inventory

Convert your Halloween jewelry pieces to cash.


What to Do With Excess Inventory by Nile Corp

Halloween’s come and gone but not all your trick-or-treating inspired jewelry pieces have been sold. Are you going to keep them until next year or risk and try to sell them even when the Christmas spirit is already here? Yes, excess inventory can be a real pain for jewelry businesses, especially those who sell seasonal designs. However, you can cash in on these pieces. And without further ado, here are five ways to do that:


Redesign them.

Do you have pumpkin-designed earrings or rings? Turn them into festive snowmen pieces for your Christmas inventory! All you need are white, black, and orange acrylic paints. Paint the whole charm white, use the black paint for the eyes and mouth, and orange for the carrot nose. Take inspiration from the real pumpkin in the photo above by Chrissy of Adventures in DIY.


Sell them at discounted prices.


What to Do With Excess Inventory by Nile Corp


You can still try to sell them, but now at incredibly discounted prices. Some people prefer to buy seasonal items in advance, and others can get them as funny Christmas presents for their friends. These jewelry pieces may also appeal to those who collect jewelry with Halloween designs regardless of the season.


Remarket them.


What to Do With Excess Inventory by Nile Corp


Since some Halloween jewelry pieces have a Gothic style, you can remarket them as vintage Victorian or steampunk jewelry pieces. Take away the Halloween vibe; for example, you can place a black choker with a spider or cat pendant on a necklace display bust and decorate with some black lace to give it a Victorian look. You can also retain the skull and bat decors you used last Halloween.


Give them as freebies.


What to Do With Excess Inventory by Nile Corp


If you really want to get rid of these jewelry pieces, you can give them away as freebies to repeat and loyal customers. Offer them as exclusive incentives for buying two or more pieces from your shop, or for bringing other friends. You can also use social media to promote this exclusive offer.


Bundle them up with fast moving-pieces.


What to Do With Excess Inventory by Nile Corp



You can include a Halloween piece in a set of on-trend pieces. That way, you can still make money for it, even if it’s not sold at its original price. However, it would be best to redesign the jewelry first, so it doesn’t look off in the jewelry set.

In the future, make it a point to plan ahead. Do your research well before buying in bulk to prevent another case of excess inventory.

How to Improve Customer Satisfaction

Here are three simple ways to make your customers fall in love with your jewelry business.


How to Improve Customer Satisfaction by Nile Corp

Owning a jewelry business is not an easy task. You have to come up with creative ways to market your products to stand out from your competition. There are many competitors in this industry as well, both offline and online. One way to make sure you convert leads to conversions is by satisfying your customers. That said, here are three tips on how to make people fall in love with you and your products.

Listen to what they have to say.


How to Improve Customer Satisfaction by Nile Corp

When a customer comes up to a ring or necklace display, genuinely listen to what they have to say about it. Always respond in a pleasant tone and with a smile on your face. Answer their questions clearly and ask them as well. Doing so shows that you appreciate their thoughts. You can lengthen the conversation by asking for feedback on your other products or your shop as a whole. Aside from making a connection with them, your customers’ answers and suggestions can help you determine what you need to change, or what you need to do to make your business perform better.

Respect your customers.


How to Improve Customer Satisfaction by Nile Corp

No one will want to buy from a shop with rude people running it. Once a customer gets a bad experience from you, there’s a big chance they’ll spread the word to everyone they know, which is most likely on social media. This is why you should never lose your patience with an irate customer. Address the issue calmly and with class, as well as provide a solution to their complaints. Make them feel that you value their concerns and respect their opinions as a customer.

Show gratitude.


How to Improve Customer Satisfaction by Nile Corp

Do not just simply say, “thank you;” genuinely show them that you appreciate them as your customer. Research shows that people spend more time in a business known for positive customer experience. Being appreciative is a way to make them stay loyal to you and will pave the way for positive word-of-mouth advertising. Thanking them can be done in so many ways and not just at the after purchase phase. Send thank you emails or give back to your loyal customers by giving exclusive perks like discounts on your jewelry pieces.
