We are Stronger Together

Our story started when our co-founders Ezgi and Michael were having a conversation over the phone (#socialdistance) about all the cancelled events in this spring and how to cope with the new challenges the pandemic has created. One said "I'll do more email marketing", the other said "I'll definitely pay more attention to the social media". They realized that there were indeed many things to do to overcome these new challenges. But seriously, is there enough time to do all?

As small business owners, we all have to wear different hats. One day we are the social media manager, the other day we are accountants, then later we handle the sales and shipping, and now some of us has to do home schooling, too. Yes, It's overwhelming! The reason we are doing what we love to do is obvious: because that's the only way we can live. We knew that there would be challenges, we'd have to do so many different kinds of staff to run our businesses. But seriously, going through a pandemic! That's a bit too much to deal with alone.

We are all doing our best to survive these hard times and boost our online presence. We'll all send emails to our customers more frequently, post more on our social media, maybe run some ads to get more following and customers. What if there is better way to do this? We have founded Brands & Makers to make things easier for all of us. Our purpose is to create an environment that we can all cherish and support each other. We have created this platform so that DMV customers can shop from all local brands and makers at a single website and support the small businesses. Because we are stronger together, we'll come over this together.

We'll host IG Lives to get to know the creative process you go through and also which shows you binge watch currently.
