Building a local brand for your jewellery business

I have written on this subject before and do so again now as it has become even more important. The issue on hand is retailer versus product brands. Time and again I get so disillusioned by the careless way that retailers deal with their brand name.

People who have been in situ building a reputation for decades and it’s as if they do not appreciate the value of their brands for the local population. They would rather advertise the brands from certain products than their own brand, in the mistaken belief that they are more powerful. It’s as if Tesco would mainly advertise the product range they stock rather than their own brand…..never!

How do you build a local brand? There is a load of material written on this subject and, for sure, it is not by just sitting behind the counter waiting for customers to come in. It does involve spending money and doing activities which attract the local population and which are relevant to your business.

In the mean time we should say that Marjo is just for those retailers that prefer to use their own carefully nurtured brand and keep the jewellery products they sell under their umbrella. We will not ask you to merchandise in certain way or use our displays or packaging only to turn around and compete with you tomorrow……
