WHY SHOULD I BLOG ABOUT MY JEWELRY DESIGNS?

31 Blog Post Ideas For Your Jewelry Business
The printable worksheet version that you can put into a binder is HERE
Day 1 | Introduction
Introduce yourself and your jewelry company. Do this even if you have been blogging about your jewelry business for a while. It will give new customers a chance to get to know you better, and your regulars might learn something new about your jewelry business. Write a few paragraphs about how your jewelry company got started and share a story that will draw your readers in.
Be sure to share your store link within your post twice. Your store link should go somewhere in the beginning, and then again at the very end. So write something like this "When I first started your store link here..." And then at the end "Thanks for taking the time to learn about store link here, I hope you will continue to watch my jewelry company grow!
Be sure to share tons of photos of your space and products in a natural setting.
Day 2 | Talk About Your Best Selling Jewelry Designs
Talk about your best selling products, rings, necklaces, and pendants. Showcase at least 5 of your favorites and more if you want to focus on a theme. Be sure to share products and designs at various price points. Tell your readers how they are made, what inspires you to create them, and how you choose your materials. Customers love that!
Watch out for rolling of the eye phrases when writing about your products. Don't say "Our jewelry designs are made with quality findings". (rolling eyes!) Instead, focus on specifics. Say "Our handmade resin pendants are created with real Lavender flowers that we source from a small farm in France". Or, "It takes over 20 hours to delicately place each stone in its setting when making our signature necklaces from this collection” See the difference?
PRO TIP Keep a thesaurus handy to help you write descriptive content. I keep a small one tucked away in my planner so when I have an urge to write, it’s with me at all times! Amazon has many sizes here. And if you download our planner version of this post, it comes with a bonus section with many different phrases and word ideas for you to use when you are writing up your posts! It really helps with those days when you have writer's block.

Day 3 | Work In Progress On A Special Jewelry Piece
Time to show how your products are made. Pick an item and tell a story about how it comes to life. Be sure to take lots of great product photos and link to the product page so your readers can buy it right away! Talk about the details. What you think is just everyday stuff, isn't to your readers. They love to see how creations come to life, so even photos of paint colors, pens, tools, your hands. All of these things will draw your readers in. This is a perfect time to gather some of your supplies to show what goes into making a brooch, pendant or charm.
Day 4 | Behind The Scenes
Time to show off your creative space. Talk about your favorite tool or what time of the day you have the best lighting for creating your designs. And again (you are going to hear this over and over), take really great photos! How do you wire wrap your earrings and get the perfect fit for your stones or gems? Show it! Show the intimate details of your design space. Your readers will love getting a sneak peek into your creativeness.
Day 5 | A Closer Look At One Item
Feature one item from your shop and talk about it. Tell a story about why you make it or how it's made. Go into details about why you chose this particular product to feature today. Is it on sale? Do the colors go with the season? Is it a gift idea for an upcoming holiday? Tell your readers what makes this item special.
Day 6 | Inspirational Or Funny Story About Your Jewelry Business
On this day, tell an inspiring or funny story about your shop. It could be that you were excited to send an order to Italy for the first time, or your morning coffee routine went awry. One jewelry maker posted a funny picture on their blog when they accidentally spilled their glass of wine on their packaging table! Oops! Every business has an inspiring story to share so dig deep! You can do this! Write at least 500 words.
Day 7 | Best Selling Jewelry
Showcase 3 of your best sellers. If you make one of a kind jewelry items, feature 3 of your favorites today. Be sure to take great close up shots and link to the product pages for purchasing. Write about how perfect these three pieces would be for an evening out, daywear, or paired with their little black dress. Do your products come gift wrapped? If you have special packaging be sure to share those kinds of pictures. Customers love to see the final product and that includes the packaging! Show them exactly how their purchase will arrive.
Day 8 | Coming Soon
Get your readers excited with a coming soon post! This post should feature something you are working on right now. A new bracelet collection? A new color change? Something for the new season? Talk about how far ahead you work on your collections or products. If you have a trunk show or artisan show coming up talk about that today. Again, lots of beautiful photos that your readers can scan over.
Day 9 | Inspirational Post
Curate another inspirational post about what inspires you to create your jewelry designs or how you got started. Posts like these are important because you want your blog to be more than about selling your product. Readers get bored of that pretty quickly and search engines will bury your blog fast! So these kinds of posts will keep your blog well-rounded AND search engine friendly. Try to write 3 short paragraphs.
PRO TIP If it's difficult for you to come up with ideas on the fly, write things down. The best ideas can come to mind when you are packing orders, making products, or out and about with the kids. Always have a notebook close by. Check out our planner reviews to help you pick the best one for your business planning
Day 10 | Coupon Or Offer
Today you are going to share a sale, or a coupon to your readers as a thank you. If you don't want to put an item on sale, you can also give free shipping or a buy one get one free offer. Another idea is to offer a free gift with orders over a certain amount. If there's a holiday coming up, pair it with that for an extra search engine boost.
Day 11 | Behind The Scenes
Behind the scenes posts are like gold so be prepared to share posts like this throughout the month. Customers and readers LOVE seeing what goes on beyond their favorite products. It's like getting a glimpse into a special magical place. Today tell a story about your one favorite tool that you can't live without. Post lots of studio pictures and even close-ups on how you store some of your jewelry making tools.
Day 12 | Work In Progress On Three Items
Showcase 3 items you are working on and take one great work in progress photo for each design. Each product should have one paragraph talking about the piece underneath the photo. Let your readers know when you will have them available, or offer to reserve these pieces for those who would like to pre-order them. It's wonderful to have orders for products before they are even completed! Work in progress posts gets readers excited and gives them something to look forward to.
Day 13 | Flatlay Photo Of Your Products
Show your store from a different perspective. Take a flatlay photo of your tablet or phone showing your website with some of your products around it. Say something like "Our shop is always open" or "Just listed these amazing bracelets, grab them before they are gone". You can keep this one short about 250-450 words.
Day 14 | A Closer Look
Feature one product or collection from your jewelry store today and talk about it. Be sure to share beautiful product photos and links so that someone can purchase it right away. Talk about special features and how it came to be. Insert at least 5 photos of this collection or design.
Day 15 | Trend Spotting In The Jewelry Business
This post will take some research on your part. Today you will be featuring a trend that your product fits into. This post is going to help with your search engine traffic and let your readers know you are spot on when it comes to making jewelry designs that are cool and hip. Some trend ideas are Pantone's color of the year which all jewelry makers should know about! (read our Pantone article here) Or write about floral patterns that are coming out this season. If you work on minimalist pendants, for example, you can talk about how your pendants and necklaces go perfectly with a simple v neck t-shirt. If you need help with this, just Google trend spotting. Try to curate 4 paragraphs and feature at least 3 products within those paragraphs with links and photos.
Day 16 | Spotted or Milestone
Customers like purchasing from stores and shops that are successful. It makes them feel like they are part of a club and their taste is confirmed by others making the same purchases. Today you will share a post on where your products have been featured. If you haven't been featured anywhere yet, don't worry. Instead, share a milestone like your 100th or 10,000th sale or your 30,000 Facebook fans. Something fun and enlightening for your readers. Talk about how grateful you are that they are on this journey with you.
Day 17 | Behind The Scenes
Today you will talk about how you package your jewelry designs. Go into details about your beautiful packaging. Do not miss this step! Customers want to see how their order will arrive, and it might make a difference between your products and another shop they have their eye on. What makes your packaging special? Do your products arrive gift wrapped? Is your packaging eco-friendly? Do you hand make all of your jewelry pockets? This is a great time to show off some of your most beautiful products alongside their packaging.
One time I was looking for a special Mother's Day gift for my mom and was searching for a cameo pendant. I was comparing two Etsy shops. One company had the most beautiful wrapping! It was made from recycled handmade paper and I was drawn to that immediately and made my purchase.
Day 18 | Something New You Are Working On
Write about something new that is in the works for your company. Do you have a new Pinterest page? What about a loyalty program? Perhaps you submitted your products for a magazine feature. Did you go on a supply run and find something that you can't wait to try? Is there a new section on your website? Share something exciting and new today. Write about 1000 words with at least 6 product photos within this post.
Day 19 | A Closer Look
Feature one product from your store today and talk about it. Be sure to share beautiful product photos and links so that someone can purchase it right away. Try to write about 500 - 750 words today.

You don't have to give out secrets, just be sure to take lots of great photos and talk about what makes it special and unique. How long does it take for one of your creations from start to finish? Again, offer to reserve this piece for those who would like to pre-order.
21. Day 21 | Behind The Scenes
Talk about what's on your table today! What are your favorite tools? Are you packaging an extra-large order today? Working on social media? Are you going on a supply run? Working on a better website experience for your customers? Trying a new technique? Did you upload a sneak peek video to your Instagram? Talk about what’s new.
