Increase exposure for your

brand

Reach newer

and larger audiences

We're reimagining - and reinvigorating - retail.

 

Firsthand represents artists, handmade crafters and independent makers ready to sell their product in established retail stores. Bridging the handmade market world - known for its "joy of the find" - with traditional, big box retail, Firsthand creates immersive and experiential "store-within-a-store" experiences of independent brands for discerning shoppers at existing, famous-brand retailers. We're also creating synergistic relationships between those independent brands and our newest partners, the big box retailers that have been seeking new and innovative ways of drawing fresh shoppers to fill stores again as they continue to lose market share to Amazon. Firsthand provides what Amazon can't: the experience.

We get you "shelf-ready".

With Firsthand, the most creative, innovative brands and products have the opportunity to go from #Local to #National or even #International. Plus, Firsthand's suite of solutions-based, total-market resources will give brands every tool needed to achieve a strategic market advantage, providing the insights, positioning, focus and access to help bring it all to life. From quantitative and qualitative B2B research on marketing, branding, messaging, customer experience, product packaging, pricing and more, we can help you get "shelf-ready" in every way.

How to get started.

During our start-up phase (through Q3 2020), we are offering FREE memberships to all independent makers, artists and crafters who are looking to take their selling to the next level. Memberships get you listed on the Firsthand Database, searchable by our first big box retail clients. Once we're up and running, we'll offer paid membership tiers for product placement, marketing help and more, but thanks to your early membership, your free listing will never expire! Getting in early is completely free, with no obligations, and is your first step towards greater exposure and sales opportunities. Questions? Get in touch today.
