3 Golden Rules to Sell More Fine Jewelry Online

Kathleen Cutler, Bespoke Commerce

View Speaker Profile

 

Breakthrough news -if you’re tying yourself into a knot, trying to keep up with algorithm changes on Instagram, or social media ads that aren’t converting, STOP IT!

Because that segment of well off millennial audience you’re trying to reach (and get to buy) wants you to sell the way your grandma did. With human connection, trusted advice and remembering important milestones. If you don’t? They’ll just photograph your stuff, share it with their friends and never buy from you. AKA, you’re missing out on millions in yearly revenue.

The solution? Having a proven simple high-touch system that you can repeat at scale to nurture your capricious millennial audience into buyers who come back again (and again).
