As small business owners ourselves, we recognized the need to provide independent jewelers with an easy, effective and integrated marketing solution to drive more store traffic and compete better with big box retailers. Our company brings together many of the jewelry industry's top minds to help retail jewelers not only survive, but thrive in today's highly competitive retail environment.
Drive Retail brings together a number of disciplines including marketing, social media, programming, and overall business management to support our community of independent jewelers.
Our true satisfaction comes not in building powerful and effective marketing tools (although we do a pretty good job of this), but watching retail jewelry stores build profitable and sustainable businesses that become recognized leaders in their local communities.

how we got started.
We got our start around 2013 when we recognized the need to be more than a direct mail company in order to truly help independent jewelers grow and compete. It's at that time that we brought on board several partners to fill in the gaps that would eventually turn us into the industry's first integrated marketing solution for jewelers.

Rising up through the ranks to VP of Marketing and garnering national awards along the way for his strategic work, Tom found himself wondering if there was something better out there. Something that would re-ignite the fire in his soul. Thus was born Drive Media, LLC, parent company of Drive Retail.
