Membership Information

Increase online exposure

Be more visible

Extend your digital footprint

Help new customers find you

We offer two tiers of Directory Membership:

“I came across Shop Small Love Indie quite by chance and am so so glad I did. Being a part of their online markets has not only connected me with new customers and brought an increase in sales which is totally wonderful but I have also discovered a group of other incredibly talented online makers to swap ideas and tips with and it just feels like one big craft family.

Shop Small Love Indie is so helpful and constantly coming up with new ideas to help, support and promote the markets and small business makers…

If you are an independent maker and are looking for a really supportive, friendly group of like-minded crafts people and an online presence that offers far more than just online markets, take a look at Shop Small Love Indie, it’s simply brilliant.”

“I have a Silver Membership and I’m really pleased with the directory listing as I’ve been getting a steady flow of people to my website from it. I really like that I hear about the markets first. The gift guides have been excellent for website traffic.”

FROM SUFFOLK WITH LOVE

“Being part of the Shop Small Love Indie Membership is one of the best decisions I’ve made. I’ve joined a supportive and creative community, and made some wonderful connections with fellow makers. It’s great value and I’ve taken part in several markets and been featured in the Gift Guides and have been supported by the shoppers viewing my jewellery and heading over to my Etsy page!”

Here’s more information about each of the benefits above:

Directory Entry Listing

Directory Members are featured in their chosen category with a profile containing their business info, links and 2 product photos. When the product photos are clicked, it takes visitors through to the Member’s online shop to purchase. This is a great addition to your Digital Footprint and is another way for potential customers to find out about your business and products.

The Directory is open in between live market events. Great for visitors browsing the website between market events. Also, fantastic for those who miss the market or need to find a Stallholder’s details.
