Brand New Wedding Band Blog Hits 145th Post.

This article was originally featured on TransWorldNews.com:

American wedding band manufacturer uses a blogging platform to increase outreach to potential consumers.

Novell Design Studio, a leading American wedding band manufacturer that specializes in product customization, has recently launched a blog component to its main domain – www.novelldesignstudio.com. The new blog will highlight Novell’s appearances in the press, general company philosophy, education about the metals commonly available for wedding bands, authorized Novell retailers, and much more. Still in its infancy stage, Novell’s wedding band blog should be fully updated within a few weeks.

The Question is – Why a Wedding Band Blog?
“A blog is a great way to engage your potential customer in a different way other than with just a run-of-the-mill website or ordinary advertising,” reports Novell Marketing Director Rick Mulholland. “ I can use it to quickly highlight a recent news item, new wedding band and bridal jewelry products, or even one of our retailer’s upcoming events. Blogging is simply an efficient way to get the ‘word out,’ and I welcome visitors to make comments of any kind. Without initiating open conversation, we’re just another company that’s trying to preach our message. Novell’s wedding band blog component is also the very first step in a new approach to Internet marketing that will be unique to the jewelry industry. I am very excited about the future.”

Wedding ring video featured on With This Ring.

This article was originally posted on Novell’s wedding ring blog:

With This Ring, a blog dedicated to wedding trends and suggestions, featured Novell’s video based on the “Choosing the Right Metal for Your Bridal Jewelry” brochure .

From the author:
“I know I’ve written about this before, but I feel like its worth mentioning again (and now there is a video…I am all about the visual). When we went to go pick out our wedding bands I admittedly didn’t know much at all about the differences in metal. We ultimately decided on
Platinum for me and Palladium for the boy, but going into this whole experience I had never even heard of Palladium. So, I hope this video helps you a little, or at the least gives you some ideas by looking at all the different pics of jewelry!”

Helpful metal brochure featured on key wedding blogs.

Novell has recently released our latest brochure entitled “Choosing the Right Metal for Your Bridal Jewelry.” This literature is designed to help the average consumer decide which metal will be the best choice for their wedding band or engagement ring. Feel free to download – “Choosing the Right Metal for Your Bridal Jewelry.”

Here’s what some popular wedding blogs had to say about the brochure:

Wedding Bee
– Rick from Novell sent me a link to their Choosing Your Metal guide, which compares attributes like intrinsic value and life span of 6 of the most popular wedding band metals. If you are debating which metal to choose for your wedding rings, it is definitely worth a read!

With This Ring
– We are about to start the search for wedding bands and have been doing some preliminary internet searching to determine what exactly we want. Mine is easy, my ring was designed for a matching band, but B is facing a lot of choices. When we started searching I was really surprised to find out that the price of platinum has increased dramatically…from mid-December 2007 to the beginning of this week the price of platinum has risen by $800.00 an ounce! ?
