I’m going to let you in on some behind-the-scenes of what it looks like for our clients when we’ve uncovered a way for their marketing to really do what it can do best.

How to Roll Out New Jewelry Marketing Ideas

Episode #276 – “How to Roll Out New Jewelry Marketing Ideas”

Welcome to Episode #276. In this episode, I’ll delve into the significance of empathizing with your customers and share strategies on how to do so effectively. Recently, during a client call, we were bouncing ideas back and forth about the direction of their business and which products or collections to prioritize in upcoming campaigns – as well as which types of products would be interesting to develop for the sake of attracting customer attention and interest.

Despite our extensive brainstorming session, we hit a roadblock when it came to making any final decisions. Why? Because, in the end, our opinions are pretty much close to irrelevant. What truly matters is understanding what resonates with the customers and how they’ll respond.

So, instead of continuing our endless brainstorm, we narrowed down our ideas to a few favorites. We decided to gradually introduce and test these ideas to gauge customer reactions before fully committing to any one direction. This way, we ensure that our marketing efforts align closely with what our customers truly love. Being too convinced of how your audience will respond to something is a sure-fire way to set yourself up for disappointment.

Keep listening to understand how to slowly roll out your new ideas to your customers, how to understand whether or not they’re worth pursuing, and then what to do once you’ve found that your customers are responding positively – for maximum impact.

2 Essential Phases of Marketing for Jewelry Businesses

Episode #274 – “2 Essential Phases of Marketing for Jewelry Businesses”

Welcome to Episode #274. In this episode, we’re diving into the essential stages of marketing for jewelry brands and why it’s crucial to understand their distinctions.

I’ve noticed that many new jewelry business owners might not have a clear grasp of what marketing really involves, and that’s perfectly fine! I’m here to provide some clarity. First and foremost, let’s clarify that marketing is distinct from public relations and sales. While marketing can certainly support these functions, it operates differently. And if you want more on that, an entire chapter actually, check out my book Jewelry Marketing Joy.

But today on the podcast, I’ll explore the two primary types of marketing you’ll be engaged in for your jewelry business in the long run.

The first type is “Audience Building” Marketing. These are the marketing activities aimed at getting people to notice your brand. Imagine sending an email campaign to an empty subscriber list or posting on Instagram with zero followers – it wouldn’t yield much, would it? To make the second type of marketing, “Customer Relationship Building” Marketing, effective, you also need to be actively involved in”Audience Building Marketing.”

If you’re launching a new jewelry brand, you’ll likely dedicate most of your efforts to the first type because you need to attract those initial eyeballs and interest. Even if you’re an established jewelry business, you can’t afford to neglect “Audience Building” Marketing. You should continue to focus on attracting new audiences while nurturing relationships with those who are already interested.

Ready to understand marketing on a deeper level? Keep listening or watching as I explore the differences between Audience Building” Marketing and “Customer Relationship Building” Marketing. I’ll provide examples of both types and delve into why “Audience Building” Marketing can be super challenging, as well as what results to anticipate from your efforts.
