The Artisan Made Show is a collaborative boutique progressive online shopping show for people who love to buy local and Artisan Made products. The Artisan Made Show is live streamed on the Facebook or Instagram pages of the artisans themselves, and is recorded so that people can watch and shop live or later on all major social media outlets. The show alternates between Facebook editions and Instagram editions so buyers who prefer either or both platforms can easily Meet the Makers and Shop the Brands.
The Artisan Made Show features niche Indie brands, bringing the world not only useful products that solve real world problems, but also a shopping experience that makes it fun and easy for people to buy American Made products that they come to know through the lenses of their friends as they connect and have fun using their favorite social media outlets.

How the Artisan Made Show Works
In advance of the show, we release a calendar with the date and time of the show. The show begins with a 10-minute welcome, introduction, and warm up at the Indie Business Network Facebook page or the Indie Business Network Instagram page. This is presented by our founder and CEO, Donna Maria, or one of our creative directors and show hosts.
After the introduction and welcome, the host passes the audience to the first artisan, who begins presenting his or her products live at their Facebook or Instagram page, sharing the link to their page so you can easily move from the IBN page to the artisan's page.
The first artisan then passes the audience to the second artisan presenting his or her products live at their Facebook or Instagram page, sharing the link to their page so you can easily move from the IBN page to the artisan's page.
This continues until each of the artisans on the show has presented, and the last artisan passes the stream back to the Indie Business Network Facebook page or Instagram page for a wrap up.
Each artisan presents her products via Facebook Live or Instagram Live, and we have a concierge on their page to post buy links to the artisan's website and answer any customer questions about the products being presented live during each segment of the show.
It's a great opportunity for members of the public to meet the makers behind the artisan products they love, and enjoy the chance to shop in community right there at your Facebook page or Instagram, surrounded by people from all across the nation who love your products and building your fan base and following along the way.
