This week we launch – Virtual Village! An online directory for small businesses across the creative industries throughout Australia and New Zealand.
TVM has been an award winning launching pad for over 3,000 small creative businesses over the past twelve years and now we have expanded by launching this exciting online platform.
Virtual Village will make it easier for brands to be discovered, as well as connecting and collaborating with their creative counterparts.
Created by TVM co-founders Marissa and Sarah, the platform is open to creative small businesses across a number of sectors including fashion, art, design and services such as graphic design, content creation, hair and makeup and more.
“The Covid-19 restrictions earlier this year forced us to close our market events for a few months and look outside our current offering to create a virtual market, to give our creative community a chance to showcase their wares and promote their brands online,” says Sarah.
“The success of our first online event in March exceeded our expectations, with over 1million people tuning in over a 48 hour period via our digital following of over 120k and brands from all around the country and the globe signing up for the next instalment.”
“We’re excited to launch Virtual Village and continue to be the go-to launch and marketing platform for the creative industries. Community is at the heart of everything we do!” says Marissa.
Rhea Harvey, who was one of the first brands to jump at the opportunity to join Virtual Village with her fashion label Merri, says:
“The Village Markets are an integral part of Merri and I am so glad I am a part of their community”.
And jewellery designer Shannon Rogers of Lotus and Luxe agrees:
“TVM has been the most amazing platform for the growth and development of our brand over the last 11 years. I’m not sure if I would be doing what I love without the opportunity that it provides. It’s an inspiring, creative community that really supports local small creative businesses”.
