There are many aspects involved in running a successful business. Beyond giving great service and products, there are still plenty of things that you can do to make sure you’re sustaining the interest of your regular customers and capturing the interest of new ones. Putting up events lets you do that and more. Not only will a successful event generate income for your business, but it’s also a form of brand building initiative to make your store more popular in your area (and maybe even beyond).

We’ve already talked about how you can create jewelry display setups that generate sales, now let’s look at boosting your business profits even more with these great event ideas for your jewelry store.

Workshop classes/seminars

You can organize classes in your store where you can teach your customers crafts that relate to your merchandise. The workshops can be about jewelry making, jewelry care, or you can also help them design their jewelry display setups at home.

Just make sure you have a well-known expert on the subject to handle the session and that there are enough refreshments and food for everyone attending the event.

Inviting celebrities/influencers to your store

As part of their jobs, a few popular personalities are always looking to “collab” with brands for events and social media. You can take this as an opportunity to reach out to jewelry bloggers and influencers to form partnerships with them which includes in-store appearances. Depending on your budget, you can choose from established names with millions of followers to up-and-comers who are more affordable but have smaller followings. Have them talk about their passion for jewelry or you can have them handle workshop classes on jewelry styling, dressing up, etc.

Launch parties

Create a buzz around your new products and collections by staging a launch party to introduce the items to the public. Again, this can be an opportunity to invite known personalities, but also (and more importantly) the jeweler designer or creator who can talk about his/her creation. Likewise, this is an excellent public relations opportunity for your business so the presence of media helps a lot.

Holiday-themed events

There are holidays or seasons where jewelry becomes a huge part of the celebration, like weddings, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Sweet 16/QuinceaƱera birthday celebrations. You can create a store event around them by having guests like jewelers, party planners, and designers where they can talk about every aspect of these celebrations.

Charity sponsorships
For many customers, it matters that the brands they support practice corporate social responsibility and there are many ways you can go about this.

You can dedicate a portion of your earnings to charities or highlight certain items in your store where their purchase goes to organizations of your choice, and then let people know their shopping for a good cause. Your team could also take the time to volunteer to do social work for a day or two.

Remember to publicize all these events before, during, and after on your social media channels to gain the audience and attention your store needs.

At the core of these events is the concept of providing value, not just to your customers but to the community at large. It is certainly a “win-win” situation whichever way you look at it – you are promoting your business which helps with your earnings, at the same time you are sharing valuable time and information to the community with these educational and meaningful events.
