CM was started as a subscription business by a woodworker (for woodworkers) in 1996. We purchased the website when it looked like this https://web.archive.org/web/2008...? at the time, CM had 350 woodworkers from around the country, and lots of traffic because of its highly relevant domain name. We spent the next three years building out a larger base of subscribers... In early 2012, we changed the model from subscription driven to transaction driven.. two-sided marketplace theory always talks about needing to invest more heavily in scaling one side of the marketplace, in our case, we were able to do this by building a profitable subscription sales model... Btw.. when we swapped our models, the makers loved it.. it aligned our incentives around helping solve the challenge of finding makers more work.

@mikesalguero thanks for sharing. Tell us a little bit about how you guys tackled the marketplace traction challenge. You seem to have some amazing makers and creators on the platform.

@mikesalguero I want to design a custom watch. Analog. Leather Band. Large watch face. Talk to me specifically about the capabilities of your platform/suppliers. Can I get watches made? If I can, then #shutupandtakemymoney. I've been getting watches customized in China for the past few years but it's been a sluggish process with plenty of false positives.

@datarade I just submitted a request for a custom watch on Custom Made. I had no idea where to go to start getting them made, where do you get them in China? Is there an english-friendly site I can try?
