I am pleased to announce the near-launch of my newest project – The European Directory of Soap and Cosmetics Makers. The idea of a directory specifically for European soap makers has been rolling around in my head for nearly a year, and I’m excited to see it become a reality.
The aim of the directory is simple: To bring artisans and clients together. I’ll be marketing it to shops, magazines, boutiques, beauty bloggers – basically anyone who has an interest in handmade soaps, cosmetics, candles, home fragrance, skin care, hair care, and bath & body products. My goal is to have it become the premier meeting point for sellers and buyers.
For those interested in buying or featuring handmade soap and cosmetics, we’ve made sourcing what you want easy! You can browse by country or category and then contact the artisans directly about their products and services.
For sellers of handmade soap and cosmetics, the site could not be easier to use. Simply go to the joining page and sign up for a basic listing. It’s free! And it comes with a web link, an email link, a company description, and one photograph or image to represent your business or products. The premium listing allows you to better showcase your products by giving you three additional photographs for a one-time cost of just £15.
I’d like to offer a free premium listing to anyone who joins the directory by September 18th, 2009 when the site officially goes live. Just go to our joining page and sign up! Please make sure your photo is 180 x 180. Once your listing is active, I’ll contact you about the additional photographs for the premium listing. And be sure to pop over to the membership logos page to pick up your membership banner.
