Join us as we welcome Mike Salguero, CEO and co-founder of CustomMade.com, to discuss the unique trends that are emerging surrounding the idea of “custom” and the value behind transforming your craft into an beautiful story to engage a customer.
CustomMade is the first and largest online marketplace that connects customers looking for custom pieces with skilled craftsman across the country who create them. Regardless of your craft, there is a market waiting for you on CustomMade.
From the uprising of the buy local trend to the turn towards hand crafted products, one thing is certain- America’s love affair with the spirit of craft is alive and well. Consumers have a new found desire to know who is creating the products that they choose to bring into their home. As we steer away from big-business retailers and mass-made products, we look toward custom to fill our needs. Today’s customer desires to develop a relationship with their jeweler or their woodworker. They want their handcrafted table or pendant to tell a story and they want to be along every step of the way. With the core belief that custom is always a better alternative, CustomMade.com has managed to create a community of makers and customers who share the same feeling.
