For over 95 years, Helzberg Diamonds has been focused on helping people celebrate the most important moments of their lives. In 1967, Barnett Helzberg, Jr. felt so elated when Shirley said “Yes” to his marriage proposal that he created the iconic “I Am Loved” button and decided to give them away for free, because everyone should have an easy way to express their love.
As Helzberg entered the social media space, it was important for them to make this strong heritage the cornerstone of their strategy. Interaction over promotion, celebration over sales, and making sure everyone felt loved. Like every company creating an online presence, they’ve experienced both hits and misses. Todd and Lisa will share the steps of their journey so far and what they’ve done to be responsible members of the online community.

Lisa is a natural on relationship-based platforms like Facebook, and Todd is an information junkie on platforms like Twitter and Google+.
