SolarCure Makes the Jewelry Industry Shine Green

COLONIA, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- The brick-and-mortar retail jewelry industry is an industry of grand luxury goods that sparkle and dazzle the eye. The jewelry industry is also vast enough to feature beautiful designs at a wide variety of price points. Yet with all the care, crafting and time spent dedicated to making particular designs to appeal to jewelry consumers at all levels, one overall aspect seems to be lagging behind the times -- jewelry marketing.

As a whole, the jewelry industry utilizes many tried and true but antiquated methods for marketing and advertising. To raise awareness for their store event or sale, a retailer may rely on a physical mailing which can be time consuming, untargeted and expensive. Manufacturers spend time putting together catalogs, brochures and other handouts with high hopes that their retailers keep them accessible on their counters. Print advertisements can be pricey not just related to design costs but with purchasing space in the right publications for effective placement. Stores and manufacturers alike try giveaways and discount promotions to peak consumer interest. The phrase "it's all about social media" can be heard at trade shows of all sizes from coast-to-coast, yet many stores and manufacturers struggle to reach just a few hundred fans on Facebook, or even five hundred followers on Twitter. Over the course of a year, perhaps thousands of conversations are started about the "next big thing" for jewelry marketing, yet so many in the jewelry industry promote themselves as if it was still 1999. However, one New Jersey-based company, SolarCure, has introduced a new marketing method for the retail jewelry industry at large.

SolarCure offers any jewelry store, jewelry manufacturer or jewelry designer in the world a way to set their message apart from the rest of their competitors with their brand new Adopt-A-Solar-Panel™ program. Generous organizations sponsor a portion of a solar panel designed and installed for a specific non-profit organization. The non-profit organization will use energy generated through solar panels and the money saved through decreased energy bills can be put to better use towards their mission. A key component of Adopt-A-Solar-Panel™ is the distribution of an expertly crafted online press release to hundreds of online news portals, which generates SolarCure's unique concept of Solar Powered SEO™. Solar Powered SEO™ extends online reach easily and inexpensively. These nationally distributed press releases contain targeted keyword phrases related to a specific jewelry-related keyword phrase; search engines then index each article. A Solar Powered SEO™ press release has greater importance as far as the content and potential audience. A distributed article, which may be featured on over 100 quality news websites and social media portals, helps improve corporate image by announcing Adopt-A-Solar-Panel™ program participation on a broad scale, as well as strengthen brand appeal.

When considering the Adopt-A-Solar-Panel™ with its Solar Powered SEO™ component as part of your jewelry marketing plan, consider the following benefits this initiative brings to your jewelry brand:

  • Participating in the Adopt-A-Solar-Panel™ program aids the environment as a whole, assists a chosen non-profit reduce their traditional energy costs, increases online visibility and soon will help veterans in need of a job. SolarCure is currently arranging deployment of a veteran work force nationwide. In fact, the very reason the Adopt-A-Solar-Panel™ program was created was not only to improve the environment through expanded use of solar energy, but was invented specifically with the plight of the modern veteran's employment struggles in mind.
  • News for solar panel sponsorship generates nationwide publicity through SolarCure's expertly written SEO-enhanced press release, which is distributed to and featured on Yahoo! Financial News, Reuters.com, Newsday.com, CBS MarketWire, and CBS MoneyWatch as well as on many other credible news-related domains which are present in just about every key market in America. A jewelry brand can heighten awareness in a manner that is efficient as well as affordable.
  • Adopt-A-Solar-Panel™ program participation creates a unique type of branding of your jewelry designs or services that now ties into the popularity of green branding and creates new advantages for an image. Additionally, an association to green branding relates to an audience that may not normally be searching for your jewelry products, but relates to your green renewable energy efforts. Traditional jewelry marketing may not typically promote this powerful association as quickly as with the assistance of Solar Powered SEO™.
  • Solar Powered SEO™ can help make your often pricing mailing efforts extinct. An enhanced press release has a strong reach, and consumers can be encouraged to download a free PDF brochure. Hundreds of interested potential customers can have access to your promotional material at a click of a button. They may also be directed to preferred retailers just as easily. Instead of shooting costly brochures or postcards in random directions, a Solar Powered SEO™ press release instead gives a jewelry brand marketing control through precise keyword targeting.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...
