Choosing the right platform to showcase your talent and earning out of it is a daunting task. The marketplace we feel are insensitive towards a creator. We aspire to offer a much more creator based platform as we are creators ourselves, and as we have explained below with continuous learning being an integral part of the process:
• Target audience – We believe in creating a win-win situation for both us and the associated creators by tapping the appropriate target audience. Reaching out to the right audience calls for the well-planned action plan. We deploy the right online marketing techniques i.e. SEO and other related marketing efforts and our efforts will approach a different and new audience, thus expanding the reach for associated creators.
• No hidden costs – We believe in laying a robust foundation for a reliable and long-lasting relationship. To ensure the same, everything is shared in black and white prior hand i.e. before onboarding for the venture to be successful. We work with transparency with no hidden costs or tactics to hamper our joint growth.
• Flexible approach – We offer a unique and convenient platform to sell your set of creative/handcrafted offerings. We understand the worth of handmade/handcrafted offerings i.e. they are not like other over the counter products and provide you with a platform to sell them just like you are selling them at your own shop. This would give you the actual experience of running your own shop in a healthy and user-friendly environment thereby giving ample of opportunity to the deserving products to be explored by the target audience.
• Customized options – We comprehend that creating is closely associated with offering customized options too. We understand since we create too. This further gives plentiful options to creators for customizing their exceptional products as per their client’s specific requirements. As creators, we know that COD option for a customized order or made to order product is a complete no, therefore, we offer flexibility and appropriate options for that too, maintaining high-quality standards and better-operating conditions. Made on request is an essential part of your portfolio, therefore, you get to list you’re made to order items as well as seasoned products too.
• Administrative chores – We take up the responsibility of handling all your administrative chores for you thereby clearing your path to focus entirely on the uniqueness of the products by producing high-quality products and fulfilling client expectations. We will ensure smooth functioning of the entire process and be the best coordinator between the buyers and creators. You get to list as many products as you want through your creator dashboard, leaving the coordination part on us. Further, we suggest you list your limited edition stock too since they form an integral of a creator’s profile.
• Financial aspect – We charge you a modest commission of 5% on every transaction (excluding GST, other taxes & actuals) for sustaining the efforts of running this one-stop shop of brilliant creators. We completely understand the cost aspect and therefore do not charge a pumped up rate that unnecessarily makes the product expensive for the buyer or eats into the profits of the creator. Thinking about a 5% cut, think otherwise how would you end up spending if you plan to generate sales on your own solo platform – the expenses accruing out of this are definitely going to be a lot more than the 5%, we charge.
• Safeguarding work – We understand that as a creator, every piece is priceless. Hence we encourage safeguarding your work through watermark but do ensure to place it in a way that does not interrupt the clear view of the product on display. Make sure that the picture you choose to upload on our platform does justice to your unique creation.
• Pickup assistance – We provide pick up and reverse pick up a facility to the creators thereby taking care of their logistics aspect. This would ensure hassle-free to and fro of products between creators and the buyers.
• Discount scheme – We do not impose any discount schemes on anyone except the first purchase 10% discount promoted on the Homepage. Post that, it is at every creator’s discretion to offer or not offer a discount on their product. Even if they are willing to give a discount when they get to choose the occasion and other terms and conditions on their own. We will display the discount schemes under the discount section and other relevant places for the buyers to know about the same.
• No Cannibalization – Only products/offerings from the same Creator will be shared on products/offering page under related products/offerings section. We want us creators to grow together in a healthy environment, as much as possible.
• Learning from other creator’s experience – We promote the fact that learning is consistent, and continuous learning from each other’s experience can take us places in just no time. Learning from each other’s mistakes is a more effective and quick way to overcome the challenges that prevail in this highly competitive and dynamic environment.
As creators ourselves, we understand other creator’s requirements and mindset. We value every product being created therefore we do not aim to be branded as a marketplace with countless competition for the same product. We would take pride in being recognized as an online destination/shop with a limited number of creators under various categories resulting in the healthy competitive environment. For us, every individual in our online shop is creating something unique, having their own unique space benefitting from the overall combined efforts of all the creators.
Our credence is that all handmade products are unique and that is how we treat every one of them. For us, quality takes an upper hand over quantity and that is what we strive for. This is what motivates us to provide an honest and healthy space for creativity to blossom.
