I'm a retailer, can I still try Press Loft for free?
Absolutely! All you need to do to start your free trial on Press Loft is a website where you sell your products online or, if you sell to trade only, have a lists of stockists available or use a preferred supplier for the media to credit.
Press Loft works with big brands like Dunelm, Loaf and B&Q, but also with start-ups, creators, and entrepreneurs. Our network of journalists want to have access to a variety of products.
My products are not interior related, is Press Loft still relevant for me?
Press Loft works across a huge range of sectors from interiors, gifts, gardening, pets, baby, fashion, beauty and tech.
I sell unique items, is Press Loft the right fit for my business?
It can be tricky for brands selling unique items, as a product might be out of stock by the time it gets featured. If you keep an eye on the products that you showcase and make sure that you remove them from Press Loft once sold out, this can still work for you though. If you include a direct product link to your images, journalists will be able to quickly double check availability before downloading. Also, some publications have short lead times so chances that a product sells out before publishing are lower.
