How to Use Video to Rock Your Jewelry Business: Tips From a Video Rock Star

Have you ever wanted to try video to promote your jewelry business but weren’t really sure how? Where you bashful to get in front of the camera? Or did you chose not to use video because you thought it would be a big production or too much work?

Last year, I went through my re-brand for my jewelry business and website. As I was going through the process, I knew I wanted to make it easier for my clients to get to know me. While in discussions with my designer, I decided i wanted a video on my homepage. I had seen the effects of how video helped us to connect at Flourish & Thrive Academy.  I had a hunch that video would be a powerful tool to connect with clients who were meeting me for the first time, online.

My hunch was right. Most of my custom jewelry clients have always come via referral. Something interesting happened when I launched my new website with the homepage video:: I started getting a huge influx of non referral inquiries to work with me! I believe there is a reason for that….which we talk about in the interview below.

Video is one of the most effectively marketing tools to develop a following online. Today, I interview a true video Rock Star, Share Ross. She was the bassist the all female 80’s rock band, Vixen and has spent her post rockstar career pretty much doing all things video. Today, she teaches entrepreneurs how to use video to rock their brands!

I am so excited to speak to Share today because she is the real deal when it comes to using video for your online jewelry business.

In this interview we talk about::

  • How video builds trust with your audience.
  • Her top techniques and tips for using video in your jewelry business
  • Some innovative ways to use video for your jewelry brand
  • How to get social proof with video (can you say sell your jewelry on autopilot?)
  • And lots of other fun stuff

Robin & I are even more excited because Share is teaching us one of her signature trainings, How to Sparkle & Shine on Camera, for our Ramp Up Your Holiday Sales Program.

Share wants to hear from you (and so do we)! In the comments below, tell us the following::

1. Are you using video to promote your jewelry brand? If so, how?
2. What are your favorite video tips that Share mentioned?

    Wonderful and useful information. Thanks for SHAREing! Thanks for the reinforcement that it’s all about telling the story.
    Here’s an instagram video I made a month ago (…yikes, time flies, I need to add these to my Marketing Calendar and do them regularly) -It’s 4 hours of work into 15 seconds. http://instagram.com/p/bThcWJAqex/
    Digging her tips! I already see room for improvement. Heading to her site now…

      Love this Mariel! Sooo cool! Yep, those instagram vids can take a lot of time.
      You can make it simpler by just showing us one part of the process and then the finished piece. PLUS… you can play around with longer clips, too.

      Keep playing though! Sounds like you’re committed and that’s what it takes. Woohoo!

    You know what, I should also mention that on May 1 of this year, I was the girl that feared getting in front of the camera. In one month, after making a video every day for practice, I got over my fear. 🙂 So everyone can do it, if I can. You can see some of those videos on my YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/marielheart

    Just signed up for Share’s video university email list to keep improving. Thanks!

    I’m really looking forward to getting into video more myself! This video was great because I had really drawn a blank about how to use it to serve my brand & products!

    I seldom comment, however I browsed some responses on How to Use Video to Rock
    Your Jewelry Business: Tips From a Video Rock Star | Flourish & Thrive Academy.
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you
    tend not to mind. Could it be simply me or do some of these remarks look like they are written by
    brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing on other sites, I
    would like to keep up with you. Would you post a list of every one of your shared sites
    like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?

    I almost never drop responses, however i did some
    searching and wound up here How to Use Video to Rock Your Jewelry Business:
    Tips From a Video Rock Star | Flourish & Thrive Academy.

    And I do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not mind.
    Could it be simply me or does it look as if like some of the comments appear as if they are left by brain
    dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I would
    like to keep up with everything fresh you have to
    post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or
    twitter feed?
