Simply Made Local is an LA startup with a bold idea: to fill the need for online craft-oriented shopping, where shoppers deal directly with talented makers of every kind.
Guided by SmallWorld, Simply Made Local has chipped its way into a burgeoning new market: the authentic online product. It’s not easy to compete with the mass production and dropship madness of online retail. Instead, the strategy calls for something of a shift in the quality of experience.
Simply Made Local allows buyers to talk directly to sellers. There’s a personal connection in this platform reminiscent of early online listings, but lifted by a thoughtful user experience that helps makers sell effectively within their own community.
The spirit of a truly fluid digital craft show lives on Simply Made Local. Just as we shop at our local farmers’ markets, we crave the same personal experience with makers from our local area. Today, Simply Made Local is fulfilling this need.
SmallWorld built a site that could handle product listing for multiple levels of nested categories.
With three easy steps, sellers can upload items for sale in minutes and drive sales almost immediately.
Optimized for the best ecommerce mobile practices, finding item details is easy.
SmallWorld built a comprehensive messaging network within SimplyMadeLocal that handles all sales on a 1-on-1 basis.
