The Ethical Fashion Network is growing fast- and we want to make it as useful as possible for members. The Ethical Fashion Forum team will be dedicating time and resources over the next few weeks to make improvements to the network. We hope will make it more effective as a platform for networking as well as promoting the work of members.
If you have ideas on how we can make the network work better for you- please tell us! We have created a discussion on the forum so that we can take these on board, CONTRIBUTE YOUR IDEAS HERE
or, if you prefer, you can tell us directly by emailing Emily: email@example.com
CHANGES WILL INCLUDE:
RE-BRANDING THE NETWORK: Changing the site look and feel so that it fits in with our SOURCE platform branding: http://www.ethicalfashionforum.com/source
Why are we doing this? For several reasons. Firstly we will be getting a lot of press and promotion for the SOURCE platform - and we want to include the network in the press and promotion- this will benefit members as well as increasing the range of professionals joining the network. Secondly- we want to simplify what we do under one platform, rather than having separate network and source membership. Thirdly, the SOURCE platform branding has had very good feedback from our buyer and press networks- it is a good format for showcasing fashion brands and products, and looks professional and fashion led.
The network will be re-named SOURCE NETWORK. Its goals will remain the same, and nothing will change in relation to your profile and access to the site.
PROFILING MEMBERS BETTER ON THE FRONT PAGE
We are looking at several ways that we can promote members better on the front page. Rather than having a static image at the top, we plan to have a regularly changing image featuring members work.
IMPROVING THE NAVIGATION AROUND THE NETWORK
We will aim to simplify the navigation and make it easier for you to find your way around the site.
ADDING SPECIAL FEATURES
We will be adding several special features, ideas include pages with specific and valuable information for members, networking groups where you can connect with or gain advice and support from experts, opportunities to profile pioneering initiatives and products on the front page.
We look forward to hearing some of your suggestions on how we can make the network work better for you,
The Ethical Fashion Forum team
