The Studio Affiliate Program allows you to
- Create passive income for your studio and
- Improve your web sites search ranking,
- with no cost and no risk.
It's simple to create and there's nothing to buy. Read the description below to see if a No Risk Virtual Store is right for you . . .
No Risk Virtual Store: This is simple and takes minimal effort. Atta Apparel will provide you a promotion code for your exclusive use. We try to base these promotion codes on the name of your studio so it's easy to remember. You provide a link on your web site to our web site, and include the promotion code
(this is your only cost).
Passive Income: Anyone who orders using your promotion code will receive a $2 discount on every item, and you will receive a $2 commission on each item. There is no cost to setup, and nothing you have to buy. Once your web link is set up, the only thing required of you is to cash your quarterly commission checks.
Improved search rankings: We will also provide a link from our web site to yours. The cross linking helps both of our websites receive higher page ranks in the search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. In addition, anyone in your local area who sees the Atta Apparel website can find your studio that way.
Although no effort is required, a little effort will go a long way. To help you promote your virtual store, we will provide you with an Adobe Acrobat flyer with your studio name and your promotion code, highlighting some of the Atta Products. You can print, email, post on Facebook, or use any other method to increase awareness of your virtual store.
In addition, if you have a resale license, you will be able to buy Atta Apparel items at wholesale prices, which are 50% of the list price. Having a few items to display or wear around town is a great way to increase the sales in your virtual store. And when you can buy them at half price, it's easy and fun.
Compare the virtual store risk level to the traditional retail method . To sell retail, you'll need display space and people to handle the transactions. If you buy clothes at wholesale, you take all of the inventory risk. If those clothes don't sell, your stuck with them and may have to unload them at fire-sale prices. In addition, there is theft and insurance to consider. For many studio's it's just not worth it.
No Risk Virtual Store Advantages:
- No startup cost and zero ongoing maintenance
- No Inventory Risk
- Cross-linking will improve your website's page rank.
- Ability to buy Atta Apparel at wholesale.
Grass Roots Marketing - the non-corporate way: Why are we pioneering the virtual store concept? Like any business, we want people to be aware of our offerings. We could have chosen to spend our marketing dollars with corporate media buys, but we like the idea of grass roots marketing. It's Win/Win for you, your students, and for us. Why shouldn't you be paid for developing a loyal student base?
Some of you may be asking, "What if I already have retail?" If you already have retail, or you're ready to take that step, you might consider being a retail outlet, buying clothes at wholesale, and selling at your retail price. We can list you as a retail outlet on our website. You might also consider our sparse matrix retail concept . . .
Sparse Matrix Retail Store: If you want to increase your profit per item, and don't mind having a retail presence, this might be a good option for you. The Sparse Matrix concept is to have each size of a given garment, each with a different color. For example, if a Tank Top comes in Black, Blue and Brown, and sizes, Small, Medium and Large, you would get just 3 shirts, Small Black, Medium Blue and Large Brown. Anyone shopping in your studio can try on each size, and can see each color. If they want a size/color that you don't have, then simply order one for them. You should generally receive it within one week, so if you place the order right away, they should have it by the next weekly class.
To run a sparse matrix retail store, you must have a resale license. The price you pay will be 50% of the list price on www.AttaApparel.com. You can choose to mark it up 100%, or any other amount that is appropriate for your studio. You can choose just a few items, or all of the items that we offer. Once you learn what items people in your area want, you may choose to stock more of those items to "fill in the matrix".
Retail Store Advantages:
- Crossing linking will improve your website's page rank.
- Ability to buy clothing at wholesale.
- Larger profit per item.
Unless you have a successful retail store right now, we recommend you start out with a virtual store. It helps a lot to buy a few items to display at the studio and/or wear around town. If someone asks about it, give them your business card and tell them where to find the promo code and link on your website. It couldn't be easier.
