<p><span>Online marketing for jewelers is not too different from any other industry. The real difference is that the jewelry industry has not been as quick to move to online marketing. This is largely because it has been assumed that people would want to se</span><span style=”background-color: transparent;”>e their purchases first, in a brick-and-mortor store. However, that assumption is quickly changing as more and more stores start to transition into an online marketing mindset.</span></p>

<h1>How Can You Increase Store Traffic?</h1>
<p><span>There has recently been a growing anxiety within the retail industry with lack of in-store traffic and slowing sales. &nbsp;The anxiety is real, and in many respects, it is justified. &nbsp;Bridal e-commerce sites such as The Knot, Blue Nile, and even Amazon pay millions to understand the needs and buying behaviors of your customers. They invest millions into creating a rich user experience that’s specifically tailored to keeping your customers coming back for more of what they have to sell. &nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>But who are these site catering to, the millennial&nbsp;market?&nbsp; Not necessarily, they’re actually catering to the 2040’s demographic.&nbsp; The 2040 demographic is simply those visitors between the ages of 20 and 40 years of age.&nbsp; The 2040’s are a more comprehensive and fluid group of individuals that share similar purchase behaviors and tastes as opposed to ideals or outwordly perspectives.</span></p>
<p><span>But don’t worry, you still have a competitive advantage. Let’s keep reading find out what that is.</span></p>

Every Jewelry Retailer’s Secret Weapon to Increase Sales

Share on:

growing my jewelry business

Jewelry sales have been booming to become a $70 billion industry. There is no shortage of demand; however, with the increase in demand, there is also an increase in competition. So if “growing my jewelry business” is on your agenda, here is best to devise a marketing strategy based on a combination of the latest marketing trends, as well as software for jewelry.

Study Jewelry Business Trends

The internet makes it easy to research jewelry trends by visiting authoritative sites like JCK, Rapaport, International Diamond Exchange (IDEX) and National Jeweler. Studying industry statistics will help you stay updated and shape your marketing ideas.

Between 2013 and 2017 sales of women’s fashion and bridge jewelry nearly doubled in the United States to over $20 billion. You can use this industry research to compare with your own customer feedback to gauge demand in your market. Here are other recent waves that are mesmerizing consumers to consider for formulating your marketing strategies:

  • fine jewelry and fine watches
  • concierge jewelry
  • customization
  • website sophistication
  • catering to mobile users
  • jewelry that never goes out of stock

The Secret Weapon

So here it is, the secret weapon to increasing sales. Drum roll please!…It’s web design and digital marketing! Now before you click away, let us enlighten you on how that can help you increase your sales.

A new website is the first step to targeting a whole new market that exists online. Through a new website, you will be able to reach that market through social media, Google Adwords, and email blasts. Not only is the online audience a new market, but it is currently the biggest market. This exactly where your sales will come from. And so in order to target them, you can host an Instagram giveaway that will help you reach a big market through an enticing offer, and then attract potential customers who you would be interested in your products.

Conclusion

The online jewelry business is hotter than ever, but in order to stay ahead of the competition you need to step up your marketing strategies, moreover, your digital marketing strategies. Contact GemFind to help you build a more powerful interactive website designed to increase sales.

Why You Should Be In a Mobile-First Mindset

Share on:

Mobility is becoming synonymous with modern consumerism, which is why businesses that focus on a mobile first mindset can increase sales more readily. Now that the masses take smartphones with them whenever they shop, you must not ignore this growing phenomenon. Here are ways your online jewelry store can emphasize mobile customers.

Why Mobile Should Be On Your Radar

Consumers are increasingly using smartphones to help them shop, both when they are in a store and when they are at home. About 40% of consumers have now made at least one purchase with their phone. Mobile users tend to be consumers who are most ready to buy. Furthermore, many searches for products begin with mobile devices, especially when shoppers are on the go.

You can increase your reach with mobile users by making sure your site is mobile-friendly and by issuing an app of your online store. The app will then exist on mobile devices as a permanent reminder of your brand. Another way to reach mobile users is by presenting mobile coupons for discounts in your apps and on your website. 

If you run a brick-and-mortar store, consider adding mobile payment availability to your system. Shoppers appreciate the convenience of making payments with their smartphones, which saves them from carrying cash or credit cards around in their wallets. One in five smartphone users now use mobile payments to make in-store purchases.

Mobile Increases Sales

In order to achieve a mobile first mindset you need to think of how empowering the mobile experience is. The pillars of the mobile first mindset are transparency, centralization and simplicity. Customers need to have the ability to access your online store anytime from any location, and your centralized office needs to be in sync with remote workers. This ease of use will smooth the path to purchasing your products, because they realize how easy and satisfying the experience is. Thus, sales will begin growing, just as the business begins adopting a more mobile-first mindset.

Mobile first essentially means making the search and shopping experience less complex and more enjoyable. You can enrich your customers with easy ways to search vast inventory by adding GemFind tools to your store. These applications are already mobile-friendly and will save you from the high costs of working with proprietary software designers. 

Conclusion

You can gain a strong advantage over competitors by offering your customers a mobile first experience. Check out the jewelry industry tools offered by GemFind. You have a chance to increase sales when you offer a mobile first mindset that simplifies and enhances the shopping experiences.
