Who should create a 'Showroom' or 'Manufacturer' profile?
If you produce your own products and typically rely on a dealer network or distributor to sell them, then you should create a Manufacturer profile.
If you have one or more showrooms where you display and sell your product, then you should create a Showroom profile to encourage homeowners and designers to visit your locations. At this time, you (or your showroom manager) will need to create a separate profile for each Showroom location. A Showroom profile is also ideal for a business that represents and sells multiple product categories and brands. You can specify each category of product you carry (e.g., appliances, tile & stone, cabinetry, etc.) in order to have your business display in respective search queries.
If your primary business is kitchen design, you should complete a Designer or Architect profile.
Does Cultivate endorse specific professionals?
Neither Cultivate nor Williams-Sonoma, Inc. endorses the designs or work of any professional to its audience or customer base. Cultivate may identify Kitchen Projects from specific professionals and feature those Kitchen Projects throughout its editorial content. Cultivate features articles of interest from select professionals as part of its consumer editorial (see ‘Kitchen Articles’).
