Brands & Makers
COVID-19 pandemic has affected all emerging brands, makers, artists, and their communities. Most of such small businesses rely on local events, pop-up markets, and fundraisers to meet a larger local audience. All of these events have been either cancelled or postponed since the beginning of March, leaving a big dent in the retail revenue of small businesses.
Small businesses now have no choice but increase their online presence. Yet unlike big corporations, they don't have their marketing, social media, or online sales teams, brainstorming how to adjust to these unexpected circumstances. In most cases, they are a one-person team, wearing different hats at the same time.
Brands & Makers was born to make this unexpected lifestyle of "stay home" easier for our community. It's an online market place, connecting local small businesses with their communities through virtual events. These days will pass eventually, and everything will go back to normal (hopefully!). Our purpose is to make sure that we can all navigate through these hard times. After all, we are in this together!
