Take a break from booth set-up to brush up on some quick and easy marketing tools that promise to build your business.

As part of our 65th Anniversary celebration, the Atlanta Jewelry Show puts a special spotlight on one of the show's hallmarks -- education. In addition to the full roster of retail-oriented sessions we host as part of the popular AJS U show series, we're also offering a program for you, our exhibitor members.


Making Marketing Simple Effective
& Financially Feasible
PRESENTED BY: Amy Minnick & Elesa Dillon, Southern Jewelry News
DATE: Friday, February 27
TIME: 4:00-5:00 pm
ROOM: (waiting on room #)




Understanding how to market your business is critical, but when your audience is other business owners it becomes down-right complicated. You are faced with questions like, "When's the best time to communicate with them?" or "What's the most effective way to deliver information to them?" "How often should I market to them and what is the most effective use of my marketing dollars?"

These questions lie at the core of a suppliers' solid, effective marketing strategy. Unlike consumer marketing, B2B has a unique set of challenges that can kill a sale if left unattended. Join Elesa Dillon and Amy Minnick as they walk you through the basics on how to market to your retail outlets. You'll learn how to uncover where your customers virtually 'hang out,' what they're really looking for from a supplier and how to become essential to all your customers. Join us for quick easy tips on how to make your product 'top of mind' with your customers.
