Displaying Jewelry To Sell
Displaying Jewelry takes as much creativity as it does to design it!
Merchandise display is the arrangement and organization of display materials and merchandise to produce a stimulus leading to the sale of merchandise and services. It attracts the viewer's attention and induces her to act; it is visual selling and acts as a silent salesperson for the business involved. Merchandise display is visual selling.
If craft shows are your primary marketing outlet then your booth is your shop. The importance of your displaying jewelry cannot be over emphasized.
As retailers have known for centuries, an attractive presentation of merchandise often makes the difference between sale and no sale.
A bad design or no design can cost as much as a good design. You may have to lay out a few dollars at the start; but a well planned and properly prepared unit will last for years and its cost can be amortized over many shows and fairs.
At craft shows, most craftspeople offer quality merchandise that is functional, well-designed and priced right. But what they don't offer is good booth design and well displayed crafts to show off their products to their best advantage. Too often, these important aspects of a booth's overall visual impact are overlooked.
A thoughtful approach to booth design and displaying jewelry is one of the most important marketing tools jewelry designers have. Remember that you are competing against many other exhibitors at a show to attract the customers attention to your booth, therefore it should be unique and original with creativity and flair.
Your display need not be elaborate, but it should be suited to the type or style of jewelry your are selling.
Be practical when designing your booth and displaying jewelry and bear in mind that you must enhance your work not overpower it.
