JCK 5 Social Media: Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is one of the year’s biggest occasions for
retail jewelers. This year many are taking to Facebook for a number of creative
promotions. Perhaps the most successful is from a Ohio jeweler who asked his
store’s Facebook fans and friends to upload pictures of couples as part of a
contest to win a piece of jewelry. This contest has created a huge buzz in
their market with tons of photos uploaded to their wall. Other Valentine’s Day
promotions include lucrative gifts with purchase offers, some good
cross-promotional offers that include the ultimate pampering package, and a
friendly reminder that football season is over and guys better get their rumps
off the couch and into a jewelry store in time for a proper Valentine’s Day
gift.
