Selling the Sizzle

“You don’t sell the steak, you sell the sizzle.” Fashion is the sizzle. Fashion creates excitement and drama. It lures and entices. It creates the desire.

The Grand Finale of the Atlanta Jewelry Show’s popular Jewelry on the Catwalk.
To add an engine to your sales, add the allure of fashion. Presenting Collections on models makes pieces come alive and suggests stylistic options. Your customers can see how pieces may be worn with casual, business or formal dress. They can visualize mix-and-match options. Color sells. Showing black and white or vibrantly colored pieces with outfits that accentuate their color intensifies the effect. Jewelry is meant to be worn. Experienced salespeople know that when showing a necklace or bracelet, the effect is more powerful if the piece is shown on the neck or draped on the wrist. Fashion shows maximize this advantage.
