Creating Stand Out Kits
Creating kits is a no brainer. Choose the pattern, color it with your fabric inventory then post the kit for sale. Here are some ways to take this concept to the next level.
- Create projects using fabric you have in-stock.
- Incorporate older fabric that you’ve been unable to move into a project with newer fabric to give it new life and post those kits for sale.
- Incorporate closeout fabric into an overall color-way to bring down the price of a kit using a popular pattern.
- Plan kits using incoming collections (Pre-Release). Gain early interest and possibly reorder from the manufacturer while still in stock.
- Use a Quiltworx mixer pattern to create a unique layout that helps you stand out from competition.
- Use pre-colored templates in Quiltster and find suitable replacements for these popular colorways using available your available inventory.
Pro Tip: It’s not always cost-effective to create a physical sample when you only have enough fabric for two or three kits. Consider creating a project in Quiltster with fabric collections where limited amounts are available so you can promote the image to get more interest and sell these low quantity kits more quickly.
Memorable Customer Experiences
- Help customers plan kits in real-time either while they are in your shop or virtually over video conference.
- Provide alternate fabric options for customers to try out in a project to see which they like the best.
