When most business owners think of the word “free”, they immediately draw the conclusion that there is no money to be made in giving something away. However, as many entrepreneurs have proven time and time again, the total opposite is true. Freebies are well received by consumers, no matter the industry. Who doesn’t like getting something for free?
Remember that “free” comes in many forms.
You don’t have to give away your jewelry in order to make it more appealing to members of your customer base. Sometimes, it’s simply the giving of your time than can make your brand more appealing. On LaunchGrowJoy.com, Betsy Cross from betsy & iya explains that engaging with your customers to make your interactions more personal is one of the best ways to market your jewelry business.
“Tell a story!” she encourages, “Oftentimes in business, we are advised to be professional and leave out the personal. While I completely agree that remaining professional throughout the journey of your business is non-negotiable, I think one of the biggest missteps is actually not making it personal. Strike a balance. One of the strongest choices you can make as a business owner is to give your customers a genuine glimpse into who you are.”
Free perks help to build loyalty.
Do you sell your products online? If so, free shipping is a great way to lure customers away from your competitors. Consumers are prone to sticking to retailers that offer additional perks with their purchases. As Ari Shpanya points out on Econsultancy.com, “free” is a great way to build loyalty – something he believes is one of the most valuable tactics an online retailer can use to boost sales.
“By influencing customers to come back and earn free shipping or a free item, retailers can keep shoppers from visiting a competitor’s website,” he offers, “Plus, 54% of customers would consider increasing the amount of business they do with a company for loyalty rewards.”
Don’t underestimate free advertising.
Not every marketing campaign you invest in has to cost you a pretty penny. Sometimes, your best advertising comes in the form of wearing your items yourself. On LaunchGrowJoy.com, Diane Batoff of Micassileo Jewelry reminds jewelers that every person they meet is a potential customer. “Wear a piece of your jewelry every day, everywhere you go,” she advises, “Be friendly, positive and smile to everyone you see.”
