Music festival

The summer season is also the season of music festivals, and while this year’s gigs may be low-key compared to previous years that doesn’t mean you can’t bring in the same feels to your store. Time to crank up the volume and have a spot ready for glitter, colorful tank tops, denim short shorts, and sneakers. Don’t forget the colorful banners and artificial grass to make it truly feel like an outdoor music festival.

Your best jewelry display tools to use here are acrylic types especially those that come in neon.

Another great theme to build your display on is the surfer aesthetic. Think of Hawaii, surfboards, board shorts, and bikinis. With such fun and colorful props, you’re gonna have a ball recreating a beach scene at your jewelry store.

Since the surfing lifestyle is all about being one with nature, why not use jewelry displays in burlap for this particular theme?

Road trips

After being cooped up at home for so long we bet most would have “going on a road trip” as part of their agenda this summer. It’s a great theme to work on as many folks have missed out on this activity for a year. For props, better bring miniature cars, bags, and maps to your display.

Collapsible jewelry display tools would make for great props for this concept.

Display items for the Fourth of July celebrations.

Fourth of July

Once the month of July rolls out, it’s time to bring out the red, white, and blue and celebrate Independence Day.

Why You Should Give DIY Jewelry Making a Shot

It’s a fun hobby that everyone should experience even once.

Yellow beads for jewelry making.

If you’re a jewelry lover looking for a new pastime to get into, why not give jewelry making a try? There are many reasons why you should take it up as a hobby. First of all, it’s the perfect time to DIY and create passion projects. It’s also an instant mood booster most especially if you already have something finished and it’s already proudly displayed on a jewelry display stand.

Here are five more reasons why we’re big fans of jewelry making and why we think you should be one too!

The sense of accomplishment after finishing a project

No matter what you’re into, it feels pretty great to see something you’ve worked hard at be all done and displayed. Just imagine seeing the new bracelets you made worn by friends and family or admiring the pairs of earrings you just finished making on an earring display rack? We all need a little serotonin boost these days anyway and this hobby can definitely give you that.

Lets you express your personal style

Have you ever found yourself shopping for a certain jewelry piece but no matter where you go, you just can’t seem to find the one that interests you enough to buy? You can easily solve that problem once you start making your own jewelry. You can simply pick out your choice of beads and crystals to make a jewelry piece that you will actually love.

You can cut costs

Looking for a way to save cash? You can do that once you decide to make your jewelry. Customized jewelry usually comes with a hefty price tag, so why not just make one of your own? That way it would truly be a personal project, one where you get control from beginning to end. From crafting the design to picking the materials to the actual product’s creation, you will be the boss all the way. 

You can earn from this hobby

Just as you can save some cash when you take up this hobby, you can also earn from this creative pastime. Again, you’ll be your own boss and you’ll get to decide on the designs, the material you’re going to use, and how many you will be making. It’s okay to start off small and begin selling your merchandise to family and friends. Once you’ve gained your footing, plus you’ve earned followers and referrals from your initial customers then you will start to see your business grow, which is again can be a great source of pride and encouragement.

Allows you to flex your creative muscles

Whether you choose to profit or not from your venture, one thing is for sure: you will be challenged to come up with designs, and that is a good thing. Jewelry making or any other art form for that matter requires the makers to stretch their imagination and come up with something they can mold and shape to their heart’s desire. It makes for a great brain exercise and is something a lot of us can find a lot of use for.

5 Steps to a Successful Virtual Jewelry Presentation

Make sure you make a great impression online.

A happy woman taking a call on her laptop.

As the nation’s vaccination program continues to roll on, we’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We’ll soon find ourselves no longer donning masks and we can be with friends and loved ones once again without any worries. When that happens regular events like conventions and fairs can finally resume, and we’re sure the jewelry industry has great plans in store. For now, we’ll have to make do with doing things online like virtual trade shows and presentations. It might be your first time participating so we put together this article to help out.

For those not joining a virtual trade fair right now, this is also useful for those doing presentations for their online jewelry shops.

First of all, it’s not much different from doing in-person selling: you still need to have everything prepared ー from your merchandise to your chosen jewelry display stands and trays ー it’s just that you can safely do it in the comforts of your own home, and now here are the other things you need to know.

Have a script prepared or at least a list of points to focus on

Think of it this way: you wouldn’t do a school or work presentation without at least studying your notes and the same rule applies when you do a presentation for your business. Think about what you want to say, the points you want to highlight, and create a script as well as an outline for it. This will help you focus on the presentation at hand. Practice with a trusted loved one if you can so you two can work out any issue (if any) beforehand.  

Check your equipment to see if they’re working properly

Because you will be relying purely on your available technology, you have to make sure there will be no hitches to your presentation by double-checking if they’re working or not. Your essential tools are your computer/laptop, internet connection, video camera, microphone, and audio; optional would be a ring light. These will be the tools you will be using for your presentation. You may be expected to produce live content, a pre-recorded demonstration, a PowerPoint presentation, or a combination of two or all. If you have photos, links, or handouts then that will be much better.

Make sure your products and jewelry display tools are ready for presentation

Choose the ones that will best represent your brand the best. Check if your products, as well as your display devices, are in their best condition. Support tools that will bring out their beauty would be props and lighting fixtures so pick them wisely too.

Be ready with your communication channels to the public

This may also come in different forms such as live feedback during your presentation in the form of comments or a live question-and-answer portion after your presentation so they can probe you. This is a must as you would need to hear out your customers’ responses just as you would in an in-person presentation.

Use data to study the public’s response

Aside from these communication channels, you can use actual data to determine your success or not. This may come in the number of visits to your site, comments left on your social media pages, and actual sales figures that came out of your presentation. 

Make sure you have all the jewelry display stands and trays you need to have a successful virtual jewelry presentation, so go and visit Nile Corp today!

How To Stay Competitive in the Jewelry Business

Never be complacent.

A hand holding a box with gemstones inside.

In a year unlike any other, another surprising turn of events happened within the jewelry industry: jewelry sales actually saw a rise in sales during the pandemic. Once state lockdown orders eased up, the well-to-do began to splurge on jewelry purchases.

This means that now more than ever, jewelry retailers must be more aggressive when it comes to targeting their customers. With tons of competition vying for their attention on and offline, what should jewelry entrepreneurs do? Look at the different areas of your business and see if they need improvements or a complete overhaul. Don’t be afraid to make the tough calls ー if you need to create a new marketing plan or replace your shop’s interiors and jewelry display concepts, do it.

Now here are some other moves you can try.

Make sure your website employs responsive web design

This simply means that your website is properly rendered on a variety of devices. Because people are no longer limited to just the desktop these days, your website must be designed in such a way that its visuals will not be compromised when viewed whether on desktops, laptops, tablets, or mobile phones. This ensures that your site’s elements will be in order wherever and your visitors will have an easy time navigating your site.

Go for a niche market

To stand out, sometimes you would need to narrow down the scope of your target audience. There are plenty of options to choose from: weddings, ethnic, fair trade sourcing, those that cater to music and style subcultures, etc. Your entire branding must then revolve around your chosen niche and embodied by your store.

Going for a modern, minimalist aesthetic? This wooden jewelry stand will certainly fit in.

Offer personalized services

There are many jewelry buyers who are after unique designs and won’t just settle for what’s displayed on the counter. For them, they want something that no one else has, and that is certainly an opportunity that you should pursue. Custom jewelry in the form of new creations or simple engraving requests are services you can explore in your store.

Establish your brand online

When most folks are spending their time online, it makes sense for both budding and long-time jewelry businesses to be there where their target customers are. Aside from having a well-kept and responsive website, establishing your presence on social media is an excellent way to promote your services and have people get to know your brand. 

It’s best to choose social media sites that are highly visual and interactive like Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram. These platforms will allow you to showcase your merchandise through photos and videos. At the same time, they are great for reaching out to your market.

Speaking of photos, have your merchandise take the spotlight in this lovely easel display stand holder. Remember to take lots of photos so you can upload them to your social media pages.

6 Ways to Increase Your Jewelry Business’ Sales

Increase your earnings with these tips.

Various jewelry displayed on wooden dishes.

We here at Nile Corp are always on the lookout for ways we can help our customers in growing their jewelry businesses. From providing top-notch jewelry display devices to giving you ideas on the best ways to market your shop, we hope you are enjoying and learning from the articles we’ve put out so far! 

Now we are looking at another challenging aspect of having a jewelry business ー how to grow your shop’s sales. Let’s look at the ways below, shall we?

Develop a good rapport with your customers

Beyond knowing the ins and outs of a piece of jewelry or developing special skills to create exquisite pieces, there’s another important ingredient to having a successful business: a good relationship with your customers. This is a must for both brick-and-mortar as well as online businesses. Today’s consumers are much more likely to purchase when their desires are respected and they are treated as more than just dollar signs to earn from. 

Remember to always find a way to relate with your customers by asking the right questions, caring for their needs, and genuinely deliver good quality service each time. For sure they would not hesitate to avail items from your store and give in to repeat visitations in the future.

Be aware of issues that may arise from your sale of jewelry

There’s another reason why today’s consumers are unlike those of yesteryears. Many of them, especially the young ones, are much more aware of world issues where the jewelry industry may be involved in such as making sure they’re only purchasing conflict-free and ethically sourced diamonds.

First of all, it’s best to advocate for these humane and lawful means of sourcing by knowing about the issues involved. More importantly, make sure your suppliers and/or creations only follow these principles. Other issues that may be of interest to your customers (green initiatives, sustainability) can be reflected not only by the type of merchandise you choose to sell but also through the materials you use for your shop’s interiors and jewelry display devices. Environment-friendly options you can use are jewelry display tools made out of burlap or repurposed wood.

Invest in your shop’s branding

Having an identifiable name and brand makes you memorable and will help in boosting your sales. Take the time to come up with a brand voice that you will use as a guide when you’re planning for your shop’s marketing materials and initiatives. Likewise, when deciding on one, make sure it will appeal to the audience you are trying to attract.

Now, this process won’t be so easy especially because you would want to stand out from your competitors, so take the time to brainstorm it with your creative team or avail the services of a marketing firm or person to help you craft the one that’s best for you and the business.

Hold periodical events for discounts and special prizes

The public always loves a good bargain and they will travel and line up for miles to get one. Depending on your merchandise on offer and their supply, you can hold regular discount days or offer codes that slash your merchandise’s price in half or more. This can be a feasible initiative for online and physical stores alike and is a sure favorite of shoppers.

Tap the power of social media

Everyone is online these days, so why not go where the customers are? Posting pictures and videos on the most popular social media apps can definitely boost your sales when done the right way. As long as you produce great content and manage your brand’s reputation well online, there’s no reason why you should pass on the chance of going digital for your shop’s promotions.

Take the time to hear out the public’s sentiments

Whether you do this in person or online via the comments left on your social media accounts or even review sites, make sure to get to know your audience by knowing what they have to say about your product and service. Word of mouth can be a powerful driver for consumer behavior and you better believe people will be talking about you on the web, so listen and respond well to what you will find online and offline.

Good luck!
