I need help choosing a category on "Choose Your Journey"
We understand that picking the category to register you company under can be confusing, so we are here to help. Below is a guide of the most common businesses within each category.
A Brand has a product line. They may have retail locations as well, but they sell their own product.
A Retailer has a physical location or online store and sells other brands products.
A Manufacturer is someone who aids in producing the product, whether that is supplying or producing the material and trims or producing the physical product.
A Service is any business that helps in the growth of all products outside of manufacturing. If your business helps in the creative aspect before the product is made, or in the marketing/selling of the product, you would be considered a service.
Do I have to pay in order to access the website?
Yes. We offer a basic and premium monthly subscription for Brands, Retailers, Manufacturers and Services. You can view our pricing plans. We also offer a Personal plan for individuals who are just starting out or are wanting to explore their options.
