Filming takes about 2 hours, involves a short interview and allows us to collect photographs and video footage for your listing. We will send you a filming pack so that you know what to expect. Your local team will be out visiting and filming new companies regularly. Some regions have a waiting list in place so you might have to wait a little.
Once we’ve been to visit you, we’ll collate the information for your listing and edit the photographs and film. You’ll then join the 100’s of other manufacturers already listed on Make Works
We then promote your factory as far and wide as we can. We always post new listings out to our newsletter subscribers, and through our social media channels.
