Traditional advertising remains an important part of messaging and brand building for the jewelry industry, but without innovative digital marketing to boost those efforts, messages could have the same fate as those trees that fall in the forest when no one is around: nobody hears them. Jewelry companies recognize that in our 24/7 omni-channel world, customers and potential customers are always a click/text/post away.

Those in marketing work to create innovative, exciting, relevant, and high-quality content that emphasizes a brand’s message and keeps it top-of-mind among customers. That can mean longer term campaigns or up-to-the-minute ones that hit in real time, like an Instagram post. The digital evolution is in lockstep with customization and the consumer desire to get the right message, for the right product, in the right way, at the right time. Jewelry marketing experts are tasked with achieving this.

On the Job

Marketers are the brand stewards at jewelry companies.

With images of phenomenal jewelry and gemstones, celebrities boasting their jewels, catchy quotes, and creative content featuring their travels and trends from around the globe.
