Band of Mothers:
Not For Sale
As you know, we are making some changes around these parts. We’ve had a wonderful first year and after a good business-soul searching we feel we are finally weeding out what we like, what we dislike, what works, what doesn’t work and what our truest (business) self really is. It is difficult in the beginning to not want to please everyone- but, we’re over it.
One thing that works is our Band of Mothers campaign.
It’s difficult to put into words what the responses we receive from women who have been moved, inspired, or comforted by another woman’s experience truly means to us.
We are very grateful to every woman who reaches out to be featured and we never hold anyone’s story above anyone else’s. Cause, well, thats the point of Band of Mothers. There is no right or wrong way to mother. Okay, well we can maybe think of a few things, but so far someone hasn’t reached out to encourage daily whiskey binges during pregnancy so we’ll just have to cross that bridge when we get to it.
With all that being said, Band of Mothers is very special to us. It is not a campaign that we hand out free stuff in order to have people be a part of.
And in a world where influencers run everything around us, we’re putting our foot down.
Sure, we have had some wonderful influencers participate in the campaign but only because we asked after already having a relationship with them. We did not and will not do trade work for Band of Mothers. This campaign is not for sale and to be VERY frank, if you are a woman who can’t participate in a woman to woman initiative without getting something for free-you probably aren’t our kinda gal.
This does not mean we don’t love and respect influencers for the work they do and we will continue to work with them for as long as they will have us! We just feel very strongly about this campaign being a fair, equal, and honest process and where’s the truth in it if it’s, in a way, bought.
We as a business feel really good about being pure in our intentions and honest with our voice.
Things might be getting a little more rugged around here but we sure hope y’all can respect the updates we’re making!
