Inspire and Create Desire: Why You Should Stock Our Craft Magazines

Would you like to boost your shop’s footfall, customer loyalty, and spend? You can with our bespoke range of Australian craft magazines – here’s why…

People like to shop. Retail therapy gives people a buzz. It’s an experience.

Browsing through craft magazines, a crafter can indulge in their passion by picking up a ‘must have title’. What’s more, the glossy covers and cover line regarding the projects inside are so eye-catching, creating desire, that magazines often sell themselves.

Crafters tend to purchase magazines as a necessity rather than a luxury. Hobbies, pastimes, and interests are so important to their lifestyle, that these individuals are happy to buy magazines regularly. And this shouldn’t be a surprise when you consider that magazines allow your customers to treat themselves to a worthwhile indulgence and stay up to date with everything that’s happening in their niche.

Most people with a keen interest in a particular hobby will admit that a lot of their spare time is saturated with anything associated with their pastime. Such enthusiasts will also admit that this is also true when spending their cash - a lot of it goes on their hobby- especially magazines. Unlike stagnant items that a hobbyist can only purchase once, magazines have the unique ability of producing a 'fresh' product with every issue.

This is great news for retailers, as research has proven that crafters are more likely to buy every issue of their favourite magazine rather than making 'impulse purchases'. With many of these readers relying on specialist magazines for their regular feed of information, retailers who stock our range of craft magazines are seeing a significant increase in footfall in their stores. When you look at the facts and figures, it's easy to see why retailers who stock magazines usually have higher profit margins as basket spend increases with these great bolt-on product lines in craft stores.

As a specialist craft retailer, you will know the importance of catering to your customers' needs. As more and more people are turning to crafting hobbies as an inexpensive way to fill their spare time, just think how much your reputation and profits will soar once words get around that you are stocking these exclusive money-making craft magazines.

Our Australian craft magazines are not available in newsagents or high street retailers, making our magazines a unique drop in for customer with a love for crafting. Stocking our range of craft magazines can therefore help you gain even greater advantage over other local craft stores.
