Some sweet words from past participants from Canadian Makers shows!
The whole experience of being part of the show was great. We’d correspond with other creatives before and during the show, building community over competition. It created relationships that reinforced that I was part of a larger group, supporting one another – and that is empowering and inspiring!
You were both great – very prompt responses and quick to come up with Plan B, Plan C, if something came up. I loved the layout of the online marketplace site, and how easy it was to sort products in different ways. I especially liked being able to see all of the products of a particular vendor.
I thought the whole marketplace was a great success, as a vendor and a shopper! I learned a lot that I have been able to apply to my business (especially my social media pages). You provided so many ways for the vendors to get involved with promoting and marketing. I think that participating in all of those made the experience so worthwhile and successful for me personally and, I would also like to hope, for the market in general.
I liked that everything on the show’s site was easily accessible and easy to find our pages for socials, etc. I really appreciated your help and how quick you were to respond to any questions.
I got a lot of positive feedback from the insta story takeover and really enjoyed doing it!
The shop site looked very clean, style was great, and easy to navigate. You guys were great to work with!
I loved the giveaway where people had to post what they’d buy if they won the giftcard, really encouraged people to visit the marketplace and participate.
My core values are to keep life simple and to make meaningful connections. Being a vendor with Canadian Makers allows me to work at my own pace from the comfort of home, and to connect with so many talented, encouraging and inspirational makers across Canada.
