A few months ago, I was having dinner in SF with my friend Andreea Ayers. We’ve been colleagues and friends for years, but this was our first time actually meeting in person.
As we sat there talking about our experiences with our businesses, she was telling me a story about how she has been featured in over 50 Holiday Gift Guides.
Whoa! What would you do if your jewelry was featured in 50 gift guides this season?
I’m sure you would be happy dancing!
I was impressed because I knew how powerful that was. I had been featured in a few gift guides in my time, but 50! Now that’ something to be proud of!
The first time my jewelry was placed in a gift guide, I was blown away by the number of sales I got!
I remember it like it was yesterday: a pearl necklace was featured in InStyle and a few days later appeared on the Today Show.
Now, believe it or not. This was before online shopping, so my phone was literally ringing off the hook.
I had sold out of the necklaces in stock in less than a day and scrambled to have my team create more so we could fulfill the loads of orders coming in!
Added bonus:: Katie Couric bought my necklace and earrings after she featured them!
Even though my first gift guide placement happened a long time ago, there is one thing that has stayed the same…getting into a gift guide can be a total game changer for your business.
You can easily double your holiday sales with the right Holiday Gift Guide Placements. Even just ONE placement can MAKE your entire Holiday Season!
Gift Guide’s are so powerful because your potential DREAM clients are literally scouring magazines for gift ideas. It’s a total slam dunk!
