203 – Interview With Photographer and Branding Expert Janzen Riley Tew

In this episode, I share my interview with a fascinating and creative woman who I met at this year’s JCK Las Vegas, when I participated with her on a panel called “The Fringe of Marketing”. Janzen Riley Tew is a talented and visionary photographer as well as the founder of the marketing and design agency Denim + Velvet, which services the fashion and jewelry industries. I personally consider her to be the TikTok queen, so we spend a lot of time chatting about the social media platform in this episode. 

In this episode, I’ll be covering:

  • What jewelry brands can do to ensure they’re effectively communicating their vision and identity in 2022 and beyond
  • Why should today’s jewelry brand’s consider investing time and energy into TikTok
  • Storytelling opportunities for jewelry brands on TikTok and Instagram Reels and well as some best practices for using both platforms
  • …and more!
