Diamond Lighthouse to launch new marketing strategy to sell diamonds

05 february 2019

Diamond Lighthouse has presented its new P2P marketing strategy which is meant to serve as a marketplace for diamond buyers and sellers, says 
The agency quoted the company’s marketing manager Daniel Rose as saying  that Diamond Lighthouse has created a trustworthy platform where sellers and consumers can make deals on diamonds. 
“…Despite the fact that nowadays there are a few more options - online auctions like eBay as well as buy and sell platforms like Craigslist - none provide you with a massive network of diamond buyers that trust and rely on our platform to buy diamonds for personal use or resale,” he said.

He added that the inventory that a buyer can find on the platform comes from a wide range of people both professionals and amateurs, but the company can guaranty the quality of each diamond they sell. The system works as simple as sending a secured parcel with UPS, then the package is open live and the diamond is transmitted for a professional GIA grading, thus providing security in the product the client wants to buy.  
The advantage of the system is that sellers can get different offers on their products and can choose the buyer themselves, they don’t have to pay for the shipping or grading, says the report.
