Frequently asked questions

How is Make it British different to other Made in Britain memberships? The number one reason our members prefer us to similar organisations promoting products made in Britain is because Make it British membership converts to paying customers for their business.

Do all of our products have to be made in Britain? No. Some of our members don’t make everything in the UK, if this is the case we request that you only show products made in Britain on your directory page, and make it clear in your listing which part of your business is made here. If in doubt, please contact us for confirmation.

Just take out a yearly subscription and email us once your membership has started and we'll credit you the 20% after the 30 day trial period is over.

Our Value Promise to You

If you don't see visitors referred to your website within the first month of becoming a member - we'll give you your money back!

If you're currently paying for advertising with Google or Facebook your average cost-per-click rates on both these platforms will be at least £1 - if not more. So you only need to get 30 clicks from us in a month for your membership to pay its way from the directory listing alone. 

Our members get twice that amount of monthly referrals from Make it British - and some have up to 10x more!*

*Amount of traffic you receive can't be guaranteed and can depend on many factors such as how often you update your page, the images you use, the copy you write and the category you're in. Premium membership includes us optimising your page to help you increase the amount of referrals you receive.

We operate a 30 day guarantee - If you've completed your directory listing and have done everything we recommend to optimise it but aren’t happy with the traffic you're getting from us then we will happily refund your payment in full provided you're in your first 30 days of membership.

Get Set for Manufacturing

Hi, I'm Kate Hills  

I've spent my career in the fashion and textiles industry. Starting out with my own clothing label, I even set up my own factory to produce the goods. Everything, from start to finish, was manufactured solely in the UK.  

In my corporate career, as a buyer for Marks & Spencer and Debenhams, I saw production being moved overseas. So, in 2008, I jacked in my job in retail and decided to set out on a one woman mission to save UK manufacturing…  

Worried about the skills we were losing in the UK, I set up Make it British in 2011 to help give a voice to businesses that manufacture in the UK.
