Whether you’re a long-time entrepreneur of a brick-and-mortar jewelry shop or a home jeweler about to dive into e-commerce for the first time, having an online presence is one of the most important aspects of running a business these days.  Simply everyone is online and you will be missing out on potential customers if you don’t pursue this venture. Just as having great merchandise, top-notch services, and compelling jewelry display setups can make you stand out, there are ways to go about if you want to make sure you get in the digital spotlight.

Start a website

There are various ways by which you can establish your online presence. One is to build a website if you haven’t yet. Just like the building of a physical store, the website is your real estate online. You can first try out free website builders like Wix then later build on the platform with additional features and content for a fee. These sites have helpful and easy-to-use templates for you to use but it won’t hurt to seek out the professional eye of a website designer. 

Next, pick a domain name that will serve as your address online. It’s best to go with your business name but do check first as it may have been claimed. 

Lastly, your website’s design must be easy for visitors to navigate around. Make sure there is a clear path when going around the website with links that are properly interconnected.

Spread word about your business on social media

The next thing you should do after starting a website is to promote it on social media. Think of social media networks as one-stop shops for marketing initiatives online. There are lots you can do to promote your business: post product photos, announce events, share tips, build a relationship with the public, etc. 

Different platforms feature different ways to showcase your content, but your best bets are those that highlight visual content such as Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and TikTok. Take also into consideration the demographics of users who use each site to see which aligns the most to your target customers. Once you’ve figured things out, it’s important to have consistency when it comes to posting content to establish not just your identity but also your reliability as a source of information to your followers.

Use visuals that impress

As a jewelry brand, it’s important that your brand projects beauty, style, and elegance. This can be achieved by publishing visuals (photos and video) that are sure to grab the attention of internet users. Whether it is used to sell products or used to establish a community with your buyers, this type of content can surely create when done the right way.

You can start with a concept and then use the same as your guide as you curate your social networking sites’ content. 

The best photos have a way of attracting users so make sure you’re only publishing rave-worthy images to your timeline. From product photos perched on jewelry display stands to infographics that share trivia about jewelry, you can find there’s a wealth of content types to explore and share.

Provide information that’s useful to your audience

Another way to attract your target audience’s attention online is by providing relevant knowledge that can help them in their lives. For this to work, think of issues that may be of concern to your followers/customers. Next, create various content around your customers’ needs in formats such as blog posts and the aforementioned visual materials like photos and videos. Examples could be listicles on jewelry trivia or how-to styling tips in the form of videos.

This approach achieves two things: (1) it helps establish you as a reliable source of information and (2) helps strengthen your brand’s online presence.
