Here’s a rough guide for makers to invite new members to join We Make.
For our founding members: if the makers you invite sign up before September 1 they’ll also get the benefits that come from being a founder.
If you think of a point that would add value to what’s here, would you share it by adding it in the comments below?
Here are some generic points. Add your intro and closing and customize these as much as you’d like. Or, feel free to write your own.
With other very talented makers, I’m part of a new social space for sharing and discovering handcraft called We Make.
Access is currently by invitation-only but founding makers have been given a few invitations each so I wanted to see if you would be interested in being a part!
You can see what’s in place at https://wemake.co
As you’ll see on the site, apart from connecting around the images there is also the interactive Maker Map for discovering makers by area or craft. And, the feed for each craft is curated by makers (no algorithms!). There are also a lot of other maker-focused features planned, drawing heavily on community input for direction.
The platform, which is maker-founded and maker-led, is just starting. Registration will be opening to the larger maker community and public soon but makers that receive an invitation and sign up before September 1 will receive founder benefits including free access to features like premium customer support and the ability to include For Sale links in posts.
You’ll see links on the site to join or request early access. Or, you can sign up directly here:
If you sign up, mention my name in the “How did you hear about us?” field to get pre-approved access.
