Shopping With Soul is a curated online shopping directory brought to you by Crafty Fox Market. We provide an opportunity for makers to drive traffic to their OWN online shop and get their products in front of our influential audience of shoppers, buyers, press and bloggers. We run ongoing marketing activity to promote the site and drive traffic to participants online shops, particularly in the run up to key consumer dates throughout the year.
How does it work?
Each Shopping With Soul member has a dedicated directory listing page. The website is broken down into product categories making it easy to navigate and users can also search for makers by name using the A-Z function. Each directory listing has space for up to 6 product shots and there is also space for a profile picture which can be either a photo of yourself or of your workspace. Shoppers love to see who they are buying from and learn more about your making process.
There is also be space to add: • A few lines about yourself and a description of your work • If you accept commissions and/or wholesale enquiries • A link to your main online shop and your social media accounts • Your email address and geographical location • Your logo with a further click-through to your website
Belonging to Shopping With Soul gives you a great opportunity to showcase your strongest products to our growing online audience which includes retail buyers as well as potential customers from around the UK and beyond. Each member has been carefully selected by us to ensure the quality of our listings. Where possible we treat our Shopping With Soul members as a closed group, offering new opportunities to them first. For example, when we launched our events at Mercato Metropolitano in 2017, we initially only opened applications only to SWS members. We also offer a range of discounts and benefits with selected partners and a range of free online business development webinars in partnership with The Design Trust.
