The team has been pitching ideas and feeding products to key industry influencers and high profile designers, all of which have escalated business. Additionally, photo shoots with designers of stunning tablescapes and wedding shots featuring the company’s luxury candles have lit up the web and have enticed bloggers to reach out to request product, all transpiring into increased revenue.


To date, JSMM is the only vendor driving revenue for this luxury candle company and manages all of the creative behind the offers and promotional ideas, and connections with customers through social and email marketing. Revenue is up 24 percent from 2014 – 2015, while the industry is only growing at a rate of four percent, as a result of continued efforts between the company’s CEO and the JSMM team.
