With the roar of the crowd and the thrill of a touchdown, the football season is the perfect opportunity for savvy jewelers to connect with their customers, if they know where to go. 

Because of the rise of streaming platforms like Hulu, the marketing field has shifted, opening up new opportunities that can help your jewelry store score big and attract new customers.

Traditional “over-the-air” television is on the decline as consumers continue to cut the cord from cable, making it harder and harder for jewelry stores to reach their customers. 

To get noticed, you need to go where your audience consumes content, and today, that’s predominantly on streaming services. 

Hulu is one of the biggest and most popular choices with many local advertising options, making it the ideal place to reach a captive audience with your jewelry message.

The service, which launched in 2007 and is majority owned by The Walt Disney Company, offers programming via streaming and live television via its "Hulu With Live TV" option.

Why Football Season and Hulu Ads Are the Perfect Match
For many, football is synonymous with spending time with friends and family, creating unforgettable moments when a great play happens or a favorite team wins. 

Whether fans are huddled around the TV, cheering at the stadium, or gathering at local bars, there’s an undeniable energy that pervades football season. 

Because of this electric atmosphere, the fun and emotion that’s felt during the game can be translated into goodwill that’s associated with your jewelry store. There’s no better way to elevate your brand and capture the hearts and minds of your customers. 

Here are three reasons why Hulu advertising and football can be a game changer for your jewelry marketing.

1. Major games, playoffs, and championship matchups often coincide with special occasions such as holidays, birthdays, or other events. 

When you advertise on Hulu during the “big game,” you cement your jewelry store’s brand image and remind your audience of other upcoming moments for which jewelry could be the perfect gift.

2. With the combination of adrenaline, excitement, and anticipation of the next touchdown or turnover, emotions run high during football games, putting people into a heightened state of awareness.  

Everyone’s attention is clearly focused on the screen, even during those nail-biting commercial breaks.  

Because of this, viewers remember more advertising and are more receptive to your marketing message, whether it’s the joy of gifting or the pride of wearing a beautiful new piece of jewelry. 

When you craft a Hulu ad that resonates with these feelings, you get noticed. Do it right and your jewelry store will command attention.

3. Hulu’s advanced targeting options ensures that your advertising is seen only by the most relevant audience your store wants to attract.  

The streaming service gives you many ways to fine-tune your campaigns, such as by location, demographics, and viewing habits.  

With dozens of options available (that are, by the way, not offered with traditional TV), you can extend your reach and boost your return on investment.

Maximize the Impact Of Your Hulu Advertising
Knowing the potential of Hulu advertising is one thing, but leveraging it effectively is another.  

To ensure your campaigns resonate with your audience, tell a story, and weave the worlds of jewelry and football together. 

Imagine, for example, an advertisement featuring a couple getting engaged at a football game or a parent gifting their child a piece of jewelry after their team wins.  

Craft visually stunning ads that strike an emotional chord with your target audience. These type of ads do extremely well and are often talked about.  

When creating your ad, it’s essential to focus on the quality of your visuals. High-resolution video that captures the shimmer and intricacy of your pieces will make your ads stand out. What is seen is just as important as what is said.

At the end of your ad, always be sure to use a clear and direct call-to-action. Entice viewers to take the next step, whether it’s visiting your store, browsing your online collection, or taking advantage of a football season special.  

Remember, the ultimate goal of your ad is to create a halo effect that marries the thrill and emotion of football with your jewelry store’s brand.

Once you have your creative elements ready, you need to place your media buy. Unless you’re an expert, it’s best to let someone else take the reins. 

To increase your response and reduce costs, you’ll want to strategically place your ads during high-stakes football games and other relevant Hulu programming. This maximizes your jewelry store’s visibility and ensures that your message reaches the right audience at the right time.

After you launch and while your campaign is running, use Hulu’s in-depth analytics to track your performance and improve the results.  

During each segment of your campaign, Hulu provides insights that can help you refine your approach and maximize your advertising investment. 

Through your agency, you’ll have access to essential metrics such as impressions, clicks, and conversions, giving you the intelligence needed to get the most out of every dollar spent.

With the holidays soon upon us and temperatures dropping, the season of giving and gathering around the TV to watch football is here. Now is the ideal time to reintroduce your jewelry store to existing and potential customers, branding it as the ultimate engagement ring and gift-giving destination.  

Kick off your marketing campaigns during football season and prime your store for a touchdown in holiday sales.
