Advertising Benefits

Makesa is focused on the development, support and trade for South Africans who make products. Our reach includes: Artisans, Makers and Craftspeople, as well as suppliers of materials, equipment and services. 

Our opinion is biased towards the Makers and their value chain. We are not funded by any government department and thus don’t have to pow any government policy or politics. In fact we resist politics of any kind. 

As a supplier of materials, equipment or services, you know the knowledge that is important to our Makers,  lets sit around a table or via Skype and brainstorm how can help you to inform and support your target market.

Listing Promotion

Listings are FREE, for Makers, Designers, Suppliers and the Food & Drink Artisans. 

We do have some value-adds. A featured/promoted listing will appear on the top of searches and in the ‘featured’ sections across the Makesa site.

Once you have registered and added your listing to Makesa, you can purchase a promotional key from the dropdown user menu in the main navigation bar. 

Makers and Suppliers can also buy advertising space on the Knowledgebase pages applicable to their business. 285 pages are available. Go to:


Sponsorship opportunities are available from an overall site sponsorship, Knowledge base pages, as well as listing pages.

A detailed list of all these pages is available on request.
