I have written about Maker’s row in the past. Ever since I learned about the folks at Maker’s Row a couple of years ago, I have followed their progress closely. So I was very happy to see the firm and one of its founders, Matthew Burnett, get some great press recently. If you want to start making a product in the U.S. but don’t know where to start, Maker’s row should be your first stop.
Let’s say you have an idea for a very cool overnight bag. You pay the Maker’s row measly $20 a month subscription fee and in return you get access to their digital catalog of over 6,000 U.S. manufacturers. For each of those manufacturers you get contact info, reviews, photos and videos showcasing the manufacturer’s capabilities.
I subscribe to the Maker’s row daily update program, and the amount of work they put in creating content and resources that are useful for budding domestic manufacturers is staggering. For example, in just the last few weeks they have published great articles on the difference between sales and marketing, jumpstarting an apparel brand, and manufacturing 101. If you want to start manufacturing a consumer product in the U.S., you would be nuts to embark on that quest without partnering with Maker’s row.
So if you are a budding American manufacturer who longs to have your American product made by members of your extended American family, Maker’s row should be your first stop. For a pittance a month, you can partner with the force in the Made in America movement at work today. So contact Maker’s row today! What are you waiting for?
