docrafts operates an innovative Creativity Store support programme for many of its best independent retail customers. The programme has been designed to support retailers in ways that add material value to their business. The significant investment we make to drive demand and thus sales of our products across a number of key marketing initiatives, truly adds value to our customer’s sales and profitability.

How Creativity Store status benefits your business

Every 2 months, starting in January each year, docrafts launches a new product collection in the form of a Creativity Essentials Promotion. Each promotion is eagerly anticipated by the crafting community and promoted in our industry leading Creativity Magazine, along with copious amounts of projects and inspiration to engage crafters. The magazine is only sold through our retail store partners and serves to promote all the products they carry, so in effect, this “must read” publication acts as a powerful local marketing tool for our Creativity Store partners.

In addition we have an award winning consumer website (www.docrafts.com) with over 250,000 registered users which serves as a hub for the crafting community with chat forums, galleries, a members club, product guide, project inspiration, video library, Creativity TV, competitions, newsletters and much more! This website continuously promotes our product launches and directs consumers to buy from our Creativity Store partners. www.docrafts.com has a built in store locator and referral feature that constantly drives consumers to your store. With regular emails to our entire crafting database and reminders built in throughout the website we make it easy for consumers to find Creativity Stores and buy from them.

This industry leading marketing support is further complimented with Creativity Essentials Flyers supplied to Creativity Store partners to help them promote all new bi monthly product launches. These full colour, glossy flyers used for local marketing in many different forms by our customers, illustrate all products and offers on promotion and again serve to drive demand and profit.

During each 2 month promotional period, Creativity Stores are also supported with subsidised in-store events. These events are designed to engage end users with the product on promotion, by creating projects and lots of inspiration. It is common place for retailers to tell us their turnover on event days triples! These events are supported by docrafts with samples, demonstrators, POS and during the weeks leading up to the event, we send out weekly emails to local website members inviting them to attend. Some stores struggle to cope with demand on these days!

What obligations do I have to make to become a Creativity Store?
