Burdastyle.de is Germany’s largest platform for sewing patterns. To further enhance its services for users, the sewing and handicrafts brand Burda Style (the core brand of German publishing house Aenne Burda) has launched a new revenue model: a section on online events featuring an array of courses and handicraft events hosted by selected partners. These range from beginner and advanced lessons, through sewing machine reviews, specific projects, and sophisticated techniques. The platform enables Burda Style users to purchase vouchers that are redeemable in partner organizations’ courses. “Our partners for Burda Events are mainly handicraft shops with dedicated instructors who are grateful for our support in winning new customers for their events after the protracted lockdown,” says Anne Ebeling, Head of Product & Marketing at Burda Style. “Our new section is an innovative way to systematically expand our range of sewing and needlework products on Burdastyle.de while identifying new revenue models.”
