I’m always up for a bargain and have long been a customer of Groupon and Living Social, but until now there hasn’t been much in the way of social discounting for digital scrapbookers.
Then a friend shared a link to DigiGrab.com.
I tried purchasing a deal and was hooked! I found a new designer I loved, didn’t spend too much, and had fun sharing with my friends on Facebook the good deal I’d gotten.
I wanted to know more about DigiGrab, so I contacted the owner and had a lovely conversation with the owner, Bobbie.
DigiGrab is a new kind of digital scrapbooking shopping site. Can you explain to us how it works?
DigiGrab is a daily deals website focused on products for digital scrapbooking. We partner with top of the line businesses to bring you unbeatable deals! Every day we offer a new “Grab.” Grabs are only available for a limited time. When they’re gone . . . they’re gone!
Are all the offers the same, or do the deals vary depending on the designer?
The deals (Grabs) vary depending on the designer or business. You may see Grabs for a Buy One Get One Free, $5 for $10, $15, or even $20 worth of products or it could be a simple discount on a certain product. We work with each designer or business to come up with a Grab that offers value to our customers as well as value to their business.
How long are the offers available?
Grabs run between 24-72 hours. It varies depending on the designer or business.
How often do you change the offers?
We try to feature a new Grab every day. We’re always on the lookout for new designers and businesses to feature!
Is there a membership fee?
Nope. There is no membership fee or monthly subscription! You only buy what you want, when you want.
What gave you the idea for DigiGrab?
I saw daily deal niche sites popping up all over the place, but I couldn’t find one dedicated to digital scrapbooking. I know digital scrapbookers love a good deal (if they’re anything like me)! I also know how time consuming it can be for designers to market their products to the community. Why not offer a daily deals website to give digital scrapbookers the deals they want and designers the exposure they need?
How do you find the designers to feature/how would a designer get involved?
Some of the designers and businesses we’ve featured so far have been through the connections that I’ve made over the years through my work on Coolibah, a mobile scrapbooking app for the iOS. We’ve also had many designers contact us directly through our website. We just love finding and being introduced new designers and businesses involved in digital scrapbooking! We love sharing our new friends with our DigiGrab followers too! If a designer would like to get involved they can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Get Featured form on our website www.digigrab.com
Are you a designer yourself?
No, not a digital scrapbook designer. I went to school for graphic design and worked in the field for many years. I’ve dabbled in digital scrapbook design and I’ve made a few kits that are available in Coolibah. But I don’t consider myself a digital scrapbook designer. I do it mainly as a creative outlet, just for fun. I have to feed my Photoshop addiction somehow!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Bobbie (ie not y!). I have five children that range in age from 15.5 to 2 years old. I grew up in California, but currently reside in Cleveland, Ohio. I’m a graphic designer with an entrepreneurial spirit. Not only am I the co-founder of DigiGrab, but I’m also the co-founder of Coolibah, a mobile scrapbooking app for the iOS (soon to be Android too). I’m only half of DigiGrab though. The other half is my husband and co-founder, Joe. He handles a lot of the behind the scenes stuff that goes on with DigiGrab. We’ve been together for 13 years and just recently got married in Las Vegas while attending Digiscrapalooza through our sponsorship with Coolibah.
How exciting is that? Congratulations on your marriage! And thanks for taking the time to fill us in about DigiGrab.
