For Brand Founders

"I desperatelly need help. I just don't have time to find it!"

Sound familiar? As a beauty entrepreneur, you often have to rely on outside vendors to get important work done. But how do you efficiently identify and contact reliable vendors? Uplink is a service marketplace built for indie beauty entrepreneurs, with more than 600 vendors across six major functional categories, that makes it easy to identify and contact reliable solution providers. Uplink offers Choice (hundreds of providers); Trust (indie-attuned Verified Vendors); Confidence (Buying Guides that outline common business practices); and Speed (issue work proposals with Uplink Requests).

For Solution Providers

Finding new business opportunities in today’s fast-paced, fractured beauty market is the key to growth. But it’s difficult to reach emerging brands.

Enter Uplink. Within each of Uplink’s six Category directories, solution providers can choose to become verified by Beauty Independent and carry the “Verified Vendor” designation. Verified Vendors enjoy several important advantages: Visibility (Verified Vendors always appear at the top of their directory listing, ensuring best visibility); Depth (Verified Vendor company profile pages display logo, company description and client testimonials); and Prospects (Uplink requests are only sent to Verified Vendors).
