Love Independent is an e-commerce platform built to support local communities. Our idea is to group together small businesses, professionals and makers and help them in selling their products or services, while guaranteeing diversity and variety to the online market.
Big corporations and multinational retailers are increasingly colonising offline and online reality, spreading their depersonalised, overly standardised, and price-oriented approach that does not appreciate passion and creativity enough. In order to counter this trend at least a little, Love Independent’s goal is to become an online shop window for all passionate independent vendors, their talents and their professionalism.
We are two freelance consultants specialising in marketing for small businesses and Love Independent is our start-up project, an e-commerce site that supports independent businesses like us, professionals and makers in general, it makes them more visible and improves their sales.
Gathering small businesses all in one e-commerce platform helps users support the various local communities by making purchases from anywhere and potentially avoiding them having to spend time and energy by visiting a multitude of outlets. In this way even the smaller commercial activities, artisans and freelancers can offer their customers all the advantages of online purchases.
On Love Independent the users have the opportunity to purchase a variety of goods and services among the following categories: food, beverage, clothing & accessories, sport & equipment, house & kitchen, garden, health & beauty, technology, entertainment, and art & crafts. Anything, such as goods, services, digital products, coupons for discount or experiences can be sold and purchased here
