American manufacturing is not dead. It's alive and well, and living here at the Indie Business Network. Need some proof? Today, we launched My Maker Box, an exclusive, hand-curated box of Handmade In America products. My Maker Box is a monthly subscription box For Makers, By Makers, and contains products created by Makers and Handmade Entrepreneurs right here in the United States of America. We have limited quantities available today, and you can buy one of the few boxes left at this link.
Earlier today, I hosted a conference call exclusively for IBN members to announce My Maker Box and to open up Maker product and subscription opportunities. The inaugural My Maker Box will ship the first week of August 2014. Here is a quick overview so you can see all the fun we have planned!
My Maker Box is For Makers By Makers
Of course we will not turn away any purchaser just because they are not a Maker, but My Maker Box has been specifically designed to be the perfect monthly subscription for Makers and Handmade Entrepreneurs. There are a lot of great monthly subscription box services out there — I subscribe to some of them! But until My Maker Box, there has not been a box specifically for Makers and Handmade Entrepreneurs.
We pay the Makers' wholesale price for the products we curate for My Maker Box, so when you subscribe, you have the satisfaction of knowing that the Makers featured in your box have received the full asking price for the products they so lovingly create.
My Maker Box Delivers Incredible Value
Not only does My Maker Box contain awesome full-size products, but we toss in surprise samples from time to time when they are given to us for that purpose.
Additionally, My Maker Box contains coupons and discounts on products and services that Makers and Handmade Entrepreneurs like you can use to grow your business. For example, you'll enjoy coupons for complimentary coaching services, discounts on business consulting services, and opportunities to save on things like packaging supplies, educational courses, and so much more!
In addition to enjoying full-size handmade products with the knowledge that Makers were paid fairly for their work, you'll also get tangible offerings you can use right away to grow your own Maker enterprise!
My Maker Box Promotes Your Business
Of course the Makers whose products are included in My Maker Box enjoy increased exposure for their businesses and the products they make. We will blog about them and ask our customers who purchase the box to create blog posts, Facebook updates, Tweets and videos sharing their excitement when they “reveal” or “unbox” My Maker Box each month.
But that's not all …. At IBN, we believe that “a rising tide lifts all ships,” so not only are we going to promote the Makers whose products are in the box, but we are also going to promote everyone who purchases My Maker Box!
That's right. When you purchase My Maker Box, you will be provided with an opportunity to give us the links to your website and preferred social networking sites so we can acknowledge you for supporting American handmade manufacturing and tell everyone in our sphere of online influence (that's 50,000+ people!) about your business! No other subscription box service in the world promotes their subscribers in this systematic and proactive way. We are the first and only!
