Let me first introduce WowThankYou
WowThankYou was originally launched in March 2010 and is an online marketplace for UK designed and made products. Over the years our customers have appreciated the fact that all our products are well made, there is a story behind each product and all our sellers are very passionate about what they do. We work closely with our sellers, supporting and helping them to promote their work. The website is run on a non-profit basis. We take a small fee from every sale, which goes directly back to promoting the website via paid advertisements, Google Ads and to maintain and host our custom built website.
We’re taking on a new exciting direction and would like to develop our blog into more of a lifestyle blog with curated content from our creative shops on our main website.

Guest Blogging Request
Our website is due for a little upgrade and here is a sneaky peak of the new home page. The website is fully coded, securely hosted on a dedicated server and mobile responsive. We provide the latest features for both customers and our sellers. The website currently hosts over 550 individual shops (with individual login panels and access) and over 15.000 individual product pages. Here is the live website as it is (the new version will be launched in August 2016)
