Breakfast Bytes: How a Mobile Marketing Plan Can Benifit You!

On Monday, June 2nd, the Accessories Council had the pleasure of teaming up with Qwasi to present Breakfast Bytes, an informational seminar teaching retailers how to maximize marketing opportunities with mobile technology.

Retailers are constantly tracking consumer behavior, and with mobile technology you can now segment customers based on in-store & online behaviors, in conjunction with mobile interactions. This will allow you to gain a more complete understanding of who the customer is, how the customer is shopping, and what is the driving force behind the purchases.

Unlike most other advertising and marketing tools, mobile technology allows the consumer to receive information about your company in real time. Features such as SMS and MMS offer a direct connection to your intended audience. In fact, on average, 90% of all SMS messages are opened within 3 minutes of delivery. A stark contrast from the 20 %-50% average open rate of marketing emails. Companies can not only us SMS and MMS to send out marketing alerts, letting consumers know about sales and promotions, but also to send out transactional alerts such as receipts, or order confirmations, or shipping notifications. SMS is also a wonderful tool to facilitate end to end flow from purchase to delivery with functions such as Text2Buy. It allows for a simpler customer experience, and faster, more convenient purchasing.

Other valuable mobile marketing tools include LBS (Location Based Services), Mobile Apps & Push Notifications, and Passbook. LBS allows companies to use geofencing and to notify customers of location specific offers, as well as send fraud alert notifications when a customer’s credit card is used from a location outside of where his or her cellphone is being detected. Mobile Apps & Push Notifications cause prompt direct consumer reaction through event notifications sent directly to cellphones, and allow 280 characters of text, as well as rich content such as images and video. Passbook, an app available for both Android and Iphone, allows users to store coupons, event tickets, boarding passes, balance rewards cards, and gift cards all on their phones without the hassle of having to dig through a wallet or handbag. Passbook also provides the ability for companies to update their coupons in real time, subsequently making it that much easier and more enticing for consumers to shop.

Based on the consumer behavior that’s been noted, it is apparent that consumers prefer to communicate through mobile devices rather than email. In order to keep a leg up on the competition, companies must adapt to this new mindset, and develop mobile marketing plans that allow the transmission of promotions or transactions with the touch of a button.

Begin your mobile marketing journey with Qwasi now!

Swarovski Shines at Fall/Winter 2014 Press Preview

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of visiting the gorgeous Swarovski showroom for the  Fall/Winter Press Preview and we were completely enamored by the amazing colors that we encountered!

Swarovski Fall/Winter 2014 Preview

The focus of the season’s collection is to truly bring together and experiment with art and light. Newly designed custom cut crystals, exclusive to Swarovski’s Fall/Winter 2014 line, assist in allowing light reflect so that each piece sparkles perfectly. Rich jewel tones set in black metal and silver add a little edge to otherwise ultra-glamorous statement pieces. Rose gold and mixed metals are also prevalent throughout the collection, and offer a fresh take on many of Swarovski’s classic pieces. And once overpowering, classic statement watches have been redesigned to offer a slimmer, more delicate look.

Overall, the Fall/Winter 2014 collection offers a fabulous balance of femininity and edge. It was difficult to walk through without taking mental notes of each and every piece that we are dying to get our hands on!

Classes include gold and silversmithing, stone setting, wax carving, enameling, and the only Judaica metalsmithing program in the nation.

Most recently, the Accessories Council and the 92Y Jewelry Center had the pleasure of hosting two time ACE Award Honoree, Alexis Bittar, as he discussed his incredible journey as a jewelry designer with writer and producer Rima Suqi infront of a sold out crowd of over 200 guests! What started as “hawking his wares on the streets of New York” has turned into an immediately recognizable eponymous jewelry collection that is sold in 34 countries around the globe. Today, Alexis Bittar has been regarded as “one of the greatest jewelry designers of the 21st century.”

We know it’s only February and it’s still brutally cold outside, but after seeing what’s in store for fall fashion, we can’t wait for the newest styles to hit stores!

Fall accessories seem to be all about variation this year. Expect to see bags of all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures—including fur! For the girl that loves to accentuate her waist, you’re in luck. Big belts are back and better than ever.  Also, with the multitude of fabulous hats that sauntered down the runway, having a bad hair day will be a worry of the past! As for jewelry, gone are the days of chunky layering. Instead, experiment with layering dainty pieces or wearing a single statement piece that gives off a cleaner, fresher look.
