Want to get your shop in front of over 38k loyal shoppers and handmade enthusiasts?

Request to be featured on @TheHiveHandmade

We love the maker community and we would love to share your handmade products and help to promote your small business!  We have a large number of affordable feature options and requesting to be featured is easy and takes just a few short minutes.

Did you know...

All of our paid features are permanently posted on our feeds. Why is that important? Even after the initial buzz about your shop is generated from your feature on The Hive, many shops will notice that they continue to get business from their feature in the following weeks, and even months, as new Hive followers will go through our older posts to find gorgeous new goodies (just like yours!) that they just have to have!!

About our features…

All of our followers are makers and handmade enthusiasts who were gained completely organically, resulting in high interaction rates and incredible follower loyalty! Our followers know that we are very selective about the feature requests that we approve which ensures the shops we feature are of a high quality and a great fit for our community.

In order to give each of our featured makers as much exposure as possible, we only schedule 2-4 feature slots per day and we carefully review each feature request to ensure the products we choose to feature are of the highest quality and are a great fit for our community!

The approval process can take between 1-5 business days while we review your shop, product quality, photo composition and clarity, potential competition between recently featured shops, and other key feature elements.  If, for some reason, your request is not approved, you will be notified via email and your entire fee refunded, and we encourage you to request to be featured again in the future!

What Client’s Say

You did a fabulous job with the Mommy and Me Loop giveaway! You selected great shops and your instructions were very detailed, clear, and easy to follow. As a result everyone was able to participate and do what they had to do on time and correctly. It was such a pleasure to work with you and all of the other shops on this loop! Thanks so much for including me!

I just wanted to say thank you for choosing me to be a part of this loop and for putting it all together. I have done a few giveaways in the past and this one was by far the most organized and detailed. It was a huge success! Thank you!
