The annual Calendars Direct and its website operation programme launches again on Affiliate Window. The programme is now live and a warm welcome to new affiliates who would like to work with us this year.

Programme Description

We offer over 1500 stunning calendar titles from the most popular pop stars to the decidedly odd such as ‘Toilets of the World’. The vast range covers film & film stars, music & music stars, TV & Celebs, glamour (girls and hunks!) & sports, pets & wild animals, general interests & art, transport & cars plus over 120 dog breeds.

Many titles are not available in UK shops and many more are very hard to find. A huge choice means that everybody can find a calendar for their own special interest from a dream car to a rare dog breed, and find a gift for a difficult relative, friend or work colleague. The average sale is usually 2-3 calendars which may be one for themselves and the others as gifts. Some people buy most of their Christmas presents early this way with sales of between £50 and £190 not uncommon.

We are noticing growth and higher average orders. This could be due to customers considering that calendars make good, value for money presents in a recession. It is a low cost present that shows that the giver has thought about the recipient’s specific interest – however weird.

We have seen web orders increase 4 fold in the last 3 years and have adapted accordingly with a robust, easy to use website and integrated, safe order processing to ensure accuracy and speed.

The calendar market is manic from September to December with sale based demand in January.

Customer profile

The profile is genuinely across the board from titled gentry buying bloodhound calendars to prison inmates buying glamour calendars. However, the core market would be middle to downmarket 40+.
