Our consumer platform, Ideas for Living, is designed to drive potential customers to your doorstep. This is executed in a multitude of ways, be it our inspirational website, social media platforms, advertising, PR or events. We will always drive local consumers to your unique page on our website, allowing them to contact, find and visit you with ease.

6. Complimentary Marketing support

Alongside the lead generation tools in place, you will also receive free marketing support from our in-house team of marketing experts.

We have a fantastic range of point-of-sale, display and merchandising options for your showroom, which you will be given a generous amount to spend on. From oven mitts and aprons, to strut cards and signage – you will have access to the entire range to choose from.

8. Consumer literature you can trust

Our Ideas For Living Kitchens brochure , is designed to walk your customer through the kitchen design process, and act as an aid for your kitchen designers in their consultations. We understand that what goes inside a kitchen can be more difficult to sell, but often offers the best profit margins. Consumers are much more likely to have an idea on the style they like than the types of drawer runners they want. Our brochure makes this process straight-forward and enjoyable, and is un-priced, giving you the option to specify the products as part of your overall quote.

9. Prestigious Events to celebrate your success

Our annual Studio Partner Awards is an exclusive, prestigious awards event, that welcomes all our Studio Partners to celebrate their business success in the last 12 months, and recognises the businesses that have truly excelled.

 

10. Opportunity to partake in reward & incentive schemes

Running reward schemes and incentives is another way in which we ensure the Studio Partner Programme works as hard for you, as you do for us. Whether it’s a sales-based reward programme, or an incentivised prize business trip, we work hard to ensure that you feel recognised and valued as a Häfele Studio Partner.
