YOU MAKE, WE SELL – Woohoo to Creative Freedom.
We are piloting an idea to help creatives get online and Sacramento is our testing ground. The City of Sacramento has given us a grant to help creatives get an online store page with a free photography shoot. We are excited to say that we have reached capacity for how many we can onboard for this grant cycle, but are pursuing additional options to continue and expand the program so we can include all creatives county wide.
We are working hard to get to everyone who applies, Please be patient with us when signing up and know that even though it is a waitlist, we are doing all that we physically can to help all our local creatives during this era of Covid.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Free Photoshoot & E-Commerce setup for Sacramento City Makers (waitlist only)
Fill out the enrollment form to ensure we are meeting City Criteria. One of our onboarding specialists will reach out to you to schedule your onboarding process and photo shoot and your e-commerce on-boarding setup. This can take 3-6 hours to complete. There is no cost to getting you and your items photographed, help with product descriptions. We get you set up so you can leave our studio with an online store ready to go.
How is this service free for Sacramento City Creatives?
The City of Sacramento’s Creative Economy Recovery Grant program is funding this critical program to help Sacramento creatives pivot in this Covid-19 economy from an in-person sales model to an online shared e-commerce platform. To certify you meet the city’s grant guidelines, and to ensure you are a good fit for the shop program, please complete the enrollment form. The free photography and on-boarding assistance end December 20, 2020, due to the limits of the City grant.
Creatives focus on making great products and we take care of the stuff you don't want to.
We take care of customer service, sales, marketing, distribution, and all the things that suck when it comes to e-commerce. We want you to make awesome products and bring it to us so we can make it look good online, get it seen, and sold.
How is this sustainable and what is the cost for selling on the Atrium Marketplace platform?
We are a 501c3 nonprofit, so we are not like any other regular retail or e-commerce site. Our goal is to help build our Sacramento creative economy and the future circular economy. 70% of the sale price goes to the creative. The remaining 30% goes to cover the costs of service, storage, shipping, customer service, marketing and maintaining the platform. There is no platform fee.
