IndieMade's mission is to give independent entrepreneurs clean, elegant websites that are both affordable and powerful. Our goal is to make it ridiculously easy for a single artist to have a ravishing, feature-rich, and branded presence on-line that can compete with the big boys. IndieMade LLC, a privately held firm based outside of Chicago, helps indies get MADE.
IndieMade is built on top of Drupal, a powerful open-source content management system. We are proud members of the Drupal Association.
Our servers run an Ubuntu Linux distribution, use Apache as our webservers, and MySQL as our database management system. Together these make up the well-known "LAMP" stack, upon which many of the internet services you use every day are built.
What We're All About
If you're a crafter, a do-it-yourselfer, an artisan, a photographer, musician, performer or just about any kind of micro-entrepreneur, you may have a blog where you can talk about your work. You may have a photo sharing account where you can post pics of your stuff. You may have a storefront on a marketplace site where you can sell your products.
But do you have a website, just for you? A site where you can post your pics, blog your thoughts, sell your stuff, and keep in touch with your audience, all in one place?
IndieMade® was founded by Jennifer Rapp Peterson, a creative type (illustrator, cartoonist, toy inventor & serial entrepreneur). She looked around and couldn't find a simple, reasonably-priced online service that combined a blog, a photo gallery, an event calendar, and a shopping cart, all in one.
So she built one. Try it out, and tell us what you think.
