Black Friday Marketing Ideas for Startup Jewelry Businesses

Black Friday Marketing Ideas for Startup Jewelry Businesses

Cut through the noise and achieve record-breaking holiday sales with these marketing tips.

Black Friday Marketing Ideas for Startup Jewelry Businesses

No matter what the size of your jewelry business is, having a marketing campaign can help increase your revenue. This is especially true now that Thanksgiving and Black Friday are a few weeks away. Products of startup businesses may be tough to market, especially those who do not have a steady client base yet. So whether you sell handmade creations or wholesale sterling silver rings, implementing a few simple marketing strategies will boost your sales. Here are a few easy marketing ideas that you can do for your business.

Social Media

Posting on social media perhaps is the easiest way to get the word out there. Create a graphic announcing your Black Friday sale, as well as post photos of the jewelry pieces with discounted prices. You can also invest on Facebook and PPC ads to reach the right audience. To make your posts more effective, do the following tricks:

  • Do not forget call-to-action
  • Check the analytics of your accounts to know the best times to post.
  • Use hashtags like #BlackFridaySale and #JewelrySale to make it easier for customers to find you.

Countdown

You can post a countdown on your website to signal anticipation, as well as the number of stocks left of all your jewelry pieces for sale. This sense of urgency will trigger customers to buy now. Otherwise, the item will be sold out in a few. Doing so will raise the excitement of customers and increase the chances of your products getting sold out faster.

Flash Sale

As with countdowns, flash sales also create a sense of urgency. However, this is better done BEFORE Black Friday itself. Your goal is to create excitement for your actual Black Friday sale. You can include already discounted items and offer them at a much lower price in the flash sale. Indicate that once the piece is sold out, more stocks will be available on Friday with its original discounted price.

Limited Products

Add in a few new designs of jewelry and make a limited offer. You can either slash their prices or indicate on the site that there are only limited stocks left. Online shoppers love seeing new products on e-commerce websites, and you can use this to your advantage this season. Knowing that these pieces are only available on Black Friday, customers will be encouraged to buy them right now, rather than later.

Bundle Products

Bundle a slow-moving item with fast-moving items. This will allow you to sell out the former to make sure no old designs are left in your inventory. Keep the creative juices flowing by coming up with names related to Thanksgiving and Black Friday, to further pique the interest of online shoppers.

For this season, create sets of jewelry pieces with designs that remind of Halloween such as cats and moon jewelry. Be more creative by giving the sets scary names, like “Salem Witch Starter Set” which can include cat-inspired jewelry or “Werewolf Fashionista Set” that can include moon and wolf-inspired jewelry.

Flash Halloween sales

Flash sales attract a lot of online shoppers versus simple price slash-offs. However, this will be effective only if you have a steady clientele and a significant number of social media account followers. All you have to do is create an image for the promotion and post it on all of your social media accounts. Email marketing works well too! Do not forget to use hashtags in your posts to make it easier for people looking for current promos.

Newsletters with a Halloween theme

Doing so will entice your customers and increase the chance of them buying your products.

Trick-or-Treat packaging

Last week, we featured cat-inspired jewelry for the trick or treating season. Now it’s time to feature jewelry pieces with the moon design.

So aside from stocking up on cat-inspired pieces, you may want to feature moon jewelry pieces as well. And without further ado, here are six pieces from the shop that you can add to your Halloween collection.

5 Cat-Inspired Jewelry for Halloween

Cats, particularly black cats are a commercialized symbol of Halloween, along with pumpkins, ghosts, and skulls. It is said that these felines are associated with evil, sorcery, and witches, and bring bad luck to anyone who goes near them.
