Our MISSION (and your membership dollars) will underwrite the launch and continued development of our national ad campaign (using print and digital), to promote to the consumer on an ongoing basis, the values and benefits of hiring a professional interior designer.
The ad campaign is linked back to our directory, searchable by region/area (zip codes) that matter to YOU and specialty areas of practice.
Additionally, Ethos Design Collective is a vetted, online resource directory (for time and/or resource-poor) interior design business owners. The EDC collaborates with international and national, trade loyal, sponsors, vendors and brands to leverage buying power, provide educational programming, business/networking events and info, PR opportunities, as well as lifestyle/health and wellness support, plus many more business opportunities, ALL IN ONE PLACE.
We know that we wear many hats as entrepreneurs, so our approach is holistic. Life and Work go hand in hand, so Ethos strives to meet you where they intersect, and provide a trusted community of entrepreneurs facing the same challenges as you.
The top brand promises will be the continued refinement of the following as we grow: You will join top industry designers, leaders, business owners and vendors who are trade loyal and support the EDC Mission and Vision in an embracing community. Included areas of concentration include:
*Content and educational programming geared for business solutions, product knowledge, training, and life balance/self-care tips.
*Peer to Peer Marketing of your private label products.
*Find a Designer ad campaign leading consumers back to our member directory by geographical area and design specialty.
*Network service provider directory for hire, for support in areas of your business, listed by geographical area and provider categories.
*Optional premium placement at the head of your region or design specialty category, with additional information, links and photos (for less than typical advertising costs in a one-time print ad, with less targeted reach).
*Member Blog with backlinks to members own blogs. Each designer can submit blogs and content for the social media sites with backlinks to their own content.
*Member spotlights on the home page (public facing) site of our page.
*Opportunities for participation in online/experiential surveys, and forums to help direct the new narrative of interior design, as well as our member community. We respect and appreciate your voices. The Ethos Design Collective is truly a collective- about designers, for designers, to benefit the growth of your design businesses and recapture lost time (time better spent with loved ones, and lost money spent on time chasing down resources, vendors, peer marketplace providers-bolstering and supporting our own member’s businesses and service providers).
*A video marquee on the home page of the EDC showcasing events (past, current and future) as well as highlights, member spotlights, product releases and more to come!
*A calendar of design events and contests will be featured on the page as well for key industry events.
