LOS ANGELES, CA , April 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reign Sapphire Corp. (OTCQB: RGNP) (“Reign” or the “Company”), a direct-to-consumer, custom and branded jewelry company, is pleased to provide a shareholder update in conjunction with filing our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.
In 2017, management focused primarily on integrating its internal fulfillment, customer service and marketing system and on streamlining operations. While revenue declined as a result of consolidation and reduction in wholesale revenue, gross margin increased from 47.5% to 60.1%.
Much of our efforts in 2017 focused on integrating our brands into our centralized operations to achieve scale and supply chain efficiencies and allow greater ROI on marketing and advertising, key drivers, due to our direct-to-consumer model.
A key factor in our sales success is the growth of our social media following which is now over 200,000 Facebook and Instagram followers across our brands.
Strategic Marketing Optimization
In 2017, we began refining our marketing strategies to accelerate sales growth and restructure our sales strategy to improve profitability. Thus far in 2018, revenues are starting to resume growth and gross margins continue to improve year-over-year. We believe this is an indication of traction from the modifications we have made to our marketing strategy as well as new sales initiatives.
Initiatives in January, February, and March of 2018, whilst primarily operational in nature, are starting to take effect, as demonstrated by a number of improving sales and marketing metrics.
Due to the effects of these and other planned initiatives, we anticipate continued improvement in sales and profitability in 2018.
We welcome inquiries from shareholders and members of the investment community. Info@ReignSC.com or (213) 457-3772.
