    I have made contact with a locally owned family jewelry store too late for the Christmas push, but they are willing to give us a shot for Q1 (Valentine's Day). I am looking for some fantastic copy idea starters. This jeweler's selling points are high quality product and extremely high level of personal customer service...they NEVER advertise price. Does anybody have some Valentine's copy that did well for them or the next great idea?

    Hi Dan!

    See if your client would like a theme song. (NOT a jingle!) We can provide this with multiple mixes. License it for as long as the client likes. Market exclusive.

    Add great copy and ya got a winner! Let me know what you think!

    watch lots of romance movies, look for the feeling behind them, create a love story of their own that will convey the emotion they are looking for. A good commercial creates real emotion that will touch people, a story that ends up at their counter purchasing a piece of lasting love, I know its cheesy but it will work

    How about an ad starting with a take off on Dear Santa letters, but from the female to Cupid. Dear Cupid, I've been very good this year and I saw a ring/bracelet/necklace in your window/store, etc.

    Dan,

    A couple of years ago I did an annual campaign with a local jewelry store called 'Romancing the Stone'. Each month we briefly talked about the gem of the month and tied it into what the store was either offering. i got all the months and copy saved if you want.

    Dan,

    We just produced a Christmas for Chiarelli Jewelers and they love it. Perhaps we can make a Valentines Day jingle for your client?

    Romancing the Stone!! Great idea. I would really like to check out your copy and monthly break down. The jewellery store in my town is always unsure of radio and I would like to go to her with a great idea!
    Thanks

    Hi Rick, would you mind sharing this info with me also. I have been wanting some different things to present to the jewelry store in our area and this sounds good. Please email me at bonnie_katq@yahoo.com. My fax is 406.765.2357. Thanks for your help.

    Here is an idea that will turn into copy. Step one... set up a woman's night at the store around the 2nd or 3rd of February. Apps, Chapagne etc. the women in and have the radio station host the night. get women to look at thing and fill out a card with things they would like. LATER get their man's information. Feb 12th (or so) have a mens night. That is where you put the hammer down on the men.

    I have a jewelry store that does a 2 - hour sale during the Super Bowl. Of course you can't say SuperBowl on the ad...but you can say during the Big Game. They do 50% off on all gold jewelry. It is a very successful promotion for them and of course they use radio to spread the word!

    Years ago we did a promotion for Valentine's Day I can't even remember what we called it but we hid a diamond in a sticky bun. You qualify 24 contestants on the air. They all meet on Valentine's Day. Each get a sticky bun and they go crazy digging for the diamond. The diamond is provided by the jewelry store. It is great PR for the jewelry store plus they have a possible new customer that needs a setting for their diamond.

    I for one would love to see this- if you've got the copy handy- I've got a small jeweler as well- and this could be just the thing- and thanks in advance for your help, just FYI I'm probably well out of your market, being that I'm on Maui in Hawaii...

    Thanks!

    I also would love to see this!   Thank you so much for sharing, I have a small family owned jewelry store for a client and I have been racking my brain for a new idea...they have been in business for over 100 years, so finding something they haven't already done is a challengs!
