#17– How to Build a Community Around Ethical Shopping & Fair Trade Goods
with Liza Moiseeva, Co-Founder & CMO of GlobeIn
Liza Moiseeva is the Co-founder and CMO of GlobeIn, a fair trade subscription box and ethical online marketplace showcasing the exceptional craftsmanship of artisans around the world.
With GlobeIn, Liza has managed to create tremendous impact through building a deeply connected community around the brand. From model to marketing, her business works to give opportunity to artisan groups globally and build deep connections with mindful digital consumers who truly appreciate their work. GlobeIn strives to empower and support these artists, some of whose art forms are rapidly vanishing, providing a path for them to not only preserve their art, but also to thrive, find success, and take care of themselves, their families, and their communities.
As a talented entrepreneur with a history in the nonprofit and social good sector, Liza attributes much of her success to the power of the type of community building she has worked hard to infuse into GlobeIn. From running meetups with like-minded people to interactive Facebook Lives, a strong community has always been at the heart of Liza’s achievements.
In this episode, we get to hear about GlobeIn’s origin story, Liza’s journey in the social good space, and her invigorating perspective on community and growth through the context of GlobeIn. Liza also dives in and breaks down the fundamentals she believes has been key to GlobeIn’s success, having managed to navigate a competitive industry while still promoting sustainable consumption, build a network of passionate and engaged customers and create powerful, lasting change for artisan groups all around the world.
